Chris Brown

The Real Problem Is Still Rihanna

10/29/2013 6:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown got a hot meal after getting sprung from jail, and TMZ has learned ... his people aren't that worried about the misdemeanor assault charge -- they're WAY more concerned about the impact it will have on his probation status in the Rihanna case.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the charge against Chris was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor because the victim's injuries weren't that severe and witness statements conflicted.   The reality is -- worst case scenario ... Chris won't do any time for the assault.

The Rihanna case is much more problematic.  As we first reported, the L.A. County Probation Dept. is already conducting an investigation to determine if Chris violated his probation.  As one source familiar with the investigation tells us, "It's pretty clear he didn't keep his nose clean.  It sure seems like a violation."

The Probation Dept. will submit a report to the judge in the Rihanna case, and the D.A. will then weigh in -- based on what we know, they will almost certainly ask the judge to REVOKE Chris' probation. 

Worst case scenario for Chris ... if probation is revoked, 4 years in State prison.

Never has one person been arrested so many times for assault and never done any jail time. He has a rage problem, and if this isn't a blatant violation of his probation I don't know what is. Wasn't the fist fight and bottle throwing in a public club a violation of his probation? Wasn't punching Frank Ocean and calling him a fa---t a violation of his probation. Now this...... I think it is easy to say that this guy deserves to be in jail to think about things.

If Chris Brown gets nothing from this, can we call for the firing of the TMZ legal panel that always cries "worst case scenario" when nothing seems to happen to any of the people they cover, ever?

How many more times is some rich hollywood idiot going to get away with crime after crime after crime. No wonder he has no respect for the law or anything/anyone else.

Probation requires you to stay out of ALL legal trouble. What do they need to review? Lock this POS up already.

His real problem is HIMSELF. He absolutely should be violated & do some serious jail time. He's been in many situations since Rhianna, & he always gets off. His ass should be in jail. He's a VIOLENT criminal and obviously hasn't learned a thing!

The real problem is not Rhianna, the real problem is that Chris Brown is a violent psychopath.
