  • Chris Brown will today face court over alleged Rihanna assault

    Chris Brown will appear in an LA courtroom today over allegations he assaulted his pop star girlfriend, Rihanna.

    Brown is due in court even though prosecutors have yet to file charges.

    Brown is free on $50,000 bail after his arrest and, while the prosecutors have yet to charge him, he has to return to court as part of his bail release.

    The District Attorney’s office has also declined to comment on when, or if, the singer would be charged for his alleged attack.

    It is thought that Rihanna – whose shocking injuries seemingly surfaced in a police photo on the internet –  does not want to press charges.

    Chris was arrested on 8 February – the night of the Grammy Awards – after police responded to a 911 call from a woman reporting an assault.

    According to gossip website TMZ, Mark Geragos, Brown’s attorney, is trying to negotiate a possible plea deal with the DA to keep Brown out of jail.

    Brown has declined to comment on the case beyond his statement on 15 February that he was ‘saddened over what transpired‘.

    He and Rihanna have since been seen together at one of P Diddy’s Miami mansions, and are reportedly giving things another go.
