Chris Brown appeared in an L.A. County Courthouse yesterday to enter his “Not Guilty” plea at his arraignment over the alleged beating of girlfriend, Rihanna.
According to press on-hand, “Brown quietly entered a not guilty plea on both of his felony charges of assault and making criminal threats.”
From here, the “Kiss Kiss” singer will return to court for a hearing on April 29. If convicted, he could face up to four years and eight months in prison.
Meanwhile, Rihanna’s lawyer, Donald Etra, told press following the arraignment: “What happened this afternoon is what we fully expected would happen this afternoon. It was merely a routine matter.” (Source)
While C-Breezy was in court in his tuxedo pants, Rihanna was headed back home. She was spotted arriving at the airport in Barbados and has made it clear she doesn’t want to testify in the case and wants Brown to cop a plea. It’s also being said that one of the main reasons she’s in Barbados right now is because “she wants to be as far away from this case as possible.”
Word on the street is that Chris Brown and Rihanna are somewhere recording a “makeup” duet together and it’s being produced by Polow Da Don.
The seemingly reconciled duo have been working on a duet that Brown is hoping to include on his new album, due out later this year, a studio source tells E! News. ?They?ve been working on it together,? the insider says.?
The E! News story also says that award-winning record producer Polow Da Don, who has worked with Brown in the past, has been ?holed up with them at a Santa Monica recording studio for the past several days.? (Source)
Apparently, Polow encouraged Chris and Rihanna to record the duet as soon as possible to capitalize on the young musicians’ “heightened emotions.” The song was originally written to be performed by just Rihanna, but Polow felt the track would work even better as a duet. The song is reportedly about a couple overcoming challenges and sources say that the recording sessions have been “very emotional” and that “the feeling in the room was pure love.” I guess their lil fighting situation is a money making opportunity for everyone.? I ain’t mad at all…
