Feb. 3 was a tough day for Chris as he attended a hearing in the 2009 Rihanna assault case. Thankfully the singer had the support of his loyal and loving girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, who held his hand all the way into the courtroom.
Chris Brown showed up to the criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles with his girlfriend Karrueche Tran by his side. It’s a good thing he had her support because the hearing couldn’t have been easy for Chris — especially after L.A. prosecutors asked the judge to send the singer “directly to jail.”

Chris and Karrueche looked very serious as they entered the court building, and it’s no wonder why. The judge in the Rihanna beating case called the hearing to question Chris about his D.C. assault case, as well as his progress in anger management rehab, TMZ reports.
The judge will be responsible for deciding whether Chris violated his probation by allegedly attacking a man in October, 2013 in D.C.
Prosecutors asked the judge to sentence Chris, 24, to jail right then and there, and set a probation violation hearing. “Brown’s violent behavior continues to increase in severity and frequency” and he is “an increasing danger to society,” they argued, according to TMZ.
The D.A. says that after interviewing witnesses and reviewing the evidence in the D.C. case, there is cause to believe Chris is guilty of the assault.
But Chris got lucky and escaped jail time once again. Instead, the judge ordered Chris to complete his 90-day rehab for anger management. Chris and Karrueche must be so relieved!
Chris Brown: His Post-Rehab Plan To Start Over In 2014
Chris has been trying to get his life together while in rehab, and he even has a game plan for when he gets out. “It’s to be loyal and true to Karrueche, get out of Hollywood, get the album out and take Kae on a long vacation,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
We’re told Chris is ready to begin a new journey in 2014 and learn from his past mistakes.
“He’s looking forward to starting new, putting all the drama and bulls**t behind him,” the source said. “He never ever thought he’d be ending up in rehab, especially not over the holidays and New Years. He wants to finish it though, and take away some of the positives from this experience and get his anger in check.”
So HollywoodLifers, what do YOU think? Does Chris deserve to go to jail? Let us know.
