Don't Make Me Go to D.C.!
11/22/2013 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
2:44 PM PT -- Good news for CB ... the judge just approved Brown's request ... he won't have to go to D.C.
Chris Brown just asked the judge in his assault case in Washington D.C. to give him a pass and NOT make him appear Monday in court so he can stay in inpatient anger management rehab.
Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, just filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- asking the judge for the break. D.C. criminal courts require a defendant's presence even in misdemeanor cases.
Brown is kind of between a rock and a hard place, because a California judge has ordered him to stay put in rehab for 90 days.
Geragos says in the docs he reached out to the prosecutors to see if they were on board with Brown skipping the hearing, but he says he was told, no dice.
So Geragos has made his case.

11/22/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown’s mom thinks his friends are a bunch of disrespectful scumbags who got him hooked on drugs and turned him into a thug … this according to sources close to the Brown family.
The mommy issues clearly go deeper than just chucking rocks at her car … apparently Breezy and his mom have been having issues off and on for a long time … mostly due to his out-of-control friends.
According to sources close to Chris … his mom believes his crew only hangs around for the money and fame … and she thinks they got him addicted to weed.
We're told the pot smoking got so bad … Chris was regularly stoned around his own mother … and she got fed up with his disrespectful behavior.
All these longstanding issues boiled over when she visited him in rehab and urged him to stay in treatment … and we all know how that turned out.
Sounds like someone needs a serious spanking.
