Chris is reportedly shelling out some serious cash to avoid a four-year prison sentence, according to a new report! Do you think Chris deserves to remain in jail?
Chris Brown is having to dip into his bank account in order to stay out of jail, according to TMZ. The singer, who is currently in jail after being kicked out of rehab, has reportedly asked his lawyer, Mark Geragos, to negotiate a settlement in his D.C. assault case. This is not surprising, because if Chris goes to trial and gets convicted of the assault, that means he violated his probation violation in the Rihanna assault case, and he would wind up wearing orange for a very long time.
Chris Brown — Secret Deal That Could Spring Him From Jail Fast
It sounds like Chris is pulling out all the stops in order to stay out of jail! The report on TMZ claims that Chris’ attorney is trying for a civil settlement and will pay the alleged victim, Parker Adams, 20, upwards of $100,000.
The victim claims that on Oct. 26, 2013, that he tried to take a picture with Chris, who then reportedly hurled a gay slur at him and then said, “I feel like boxing.” That’s when he claims that Chris broke his nose, and he was transported to the hospital.
If Chris settles out of court, the D.C. case would be dropped and then Chris would most likely be released from jail in about one week.
Chris Brown Not Eating In Jail
It sounds like getting out of jail would be good for Chris, because an insider tells HollywoodLife.com that Chris is not sleeping or eating in jail.
“It’s bad, all bad for Chris,” the source says. “He’s not doing well at all. He only drinks water and the watered-down orange juice they give him. They slide him peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or bread with some five-year-old baloney, but he doesn’t eat that. He wouldn’t even let his dogs eat that. Chris is suffering. He’s going crazy. He has been stripped of everything. He doesn’t even have underwear on. He’s got nothing and no one.”
Wow, this sounds horrible!
