Chris is still paying for his one HUGE mistake. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that he’s not having an easy time in prison, mostly because the other inmates are letting him have it and calling him names for hitting Rihanna.
Though no one expects prison time to be a breeze, Chris Brown is hitting some unexpected issues during his jail stay. A source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Chris has quickly become the center of ridicule — some inmates have yelled at Chris and called him derogatory names like “b***h,” specifically for putting his hands on Rihanna.
Chris Brown’s Jail Nightmare: Inmates Are Team Rihanna
The 24-year-old rapper is currently serving time in Mens Central jail in Los Angeles for violating his probation and he’s now understanding just how hard life is behind bars. And while the singer has publicly apologized for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, some inmates think he has yet to pay the price for his unmanly actions.
“One inmate said in passing ‘you a b***h for hitting Rihanna,'” a source close to the situation EXCLUSIVELY reveals to HollywoodLife.com. Chris is doing his best not to listen to the banter, however, it does make him “extremely upset” when he hears such sentiments.
On top of all that, Breezy isn’t getting any respect in jail. He gets no street cred in his orange jump suit and some fellow inmates think he’s a wannabe rapper, the source also says.
“They be saying other stuff too, like ‘you ain’t no rapper, you’re a whack R&B singer,'” the source continues. “They’re in there trying to break him down.”
Chris Brown’s Keeping His ‘Fingers Crossed’ For Early Release
Meanwhile, as Chris sits in his cell alone, he’s keeping hope alive that his attorneys can pull something out of their sleeves to spring him free.
“He’s taking it hour by hour, counting down until next month or if and when his lawyers can make a miracle happen,” the source adds. “Until then, he keeps to himself.”
It’s hard to feel sorry for Chris — his violence against Rihanna is still unforgivable, and it’s his own fault that he’s in jail anyways — but it is kind of hard to hear how tough things have been for Chris. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
