Congratulations to Chris Brown who has completed his 90-day court ordered stint in rehab. I don’t know what the future will bring, but I hope some time away has taught him something positive, and will keep him out of jail for fighting. According to E! Online the R&B singer has voluntarily extended his stay in anger management rehab, which to me screams progress.
The singer is starting the year off right after also receiving the Second Chance At Loving Life award from 2nd Call for his work in reducing street violence and trying to unite LA gangs through his own organization the Symphonic Love Foundation and Unity Campaign. He also announces his return to Instagram changing his handler to Chris Brown Official instead of F@$% Yo Pictures! Last but certainly not least the singer also announces the release date for his new album, X, on May 5th.
I have a soft spot for Chris Brown, and I don’t know why, it really isn’t logical. So does his lawyer, Mark Geragos, and Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin who just saved Chris Brown from jail.
Prosecutors from the District Attorney’s office, want Chris Brown in custody right now for probation violation extending from pending charges in the Washington D.C. misdemeanor assault case. Mark Geragos argues that Chris Brown looks better than he has in years, and that he’s tested negative while in rehab for the last two months.
Chris Brown is making more progress, according to his lawyer, while in rehab that he would in jail, and apparently the judge agrees.
Although you can’t see it in the TMZ video (below), Chris Brown eyes are filled with tears (above), and he’s fighting back his emotions. Thank God…
I’m reading the title of this post and I’m like wow, the stories behind these reality shows are cray. Like learning about SWV’s LeLee’s daughter Margaret today, I couldn’t even bring myself to post about that drama, but you can read all about it here. SMH! Get your child, please!
Now back to the topic, Phaedra Parks a lawyer on RHOA, is married to Apollo Nida, a convicted felon who has served five years in prison for racketeering (2004 -2009), and prior to that he served a five month stint for theft by receiving stolen goods in 1998. I say all of that to say, Apollo Nida has been arrested AGAIN for bank fraud and aggravated identity theft while living in the same household as his lawyer wife. O_O What the…
Sandra Rose was the first media outlet to report Apollo’s arrest yesterday on bank fraud and massive identity theft, and TMZ has just confirmed the news. How Aunt Sandra Rose found out, we all would like to know, but I knew from the very specific federal court language that Sandra Rose was on to something juicy. Now the details are spilling across the internet…
Justin Bieber finally gets his mugshot!!! It seems that Justin has been working over time lately to get his street cred. The If I Were Your Boyfriend singer came close to an arrest after egging a neighbor’s house, but honestly who wants to go to jail for a $20,000 prank. But drag racing under the influence of weed, alcohol, and prescription drugs while resisting arrest and cussing out cops, now that’s harrrd!!!
Not to mention we hear he was with a model chick that isn’t his main chick. Hey Selena!
In all seriousness, we have another childhood star addicted to fame and spinning out of control right before our eyes. Justin’s mom, Pattie Mallete, blames fame on his behavior and asks that we pray for him instead of ridiculing him:
Now I haven’t heard anything from rapper Soulja Boy as of late. I think he’s struggling to find his rapper identity after the Crank That stage. But I know I wasn’t expecting to hear anything like this. According to TMZ, just moments ago, Soulja Boy was arrested in Los Angeles for possession of a loaded gun.
Law enforcement sources tell us … the 23-year-old rapper was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over in the San Fernando Valley for running a stop sign early Wednesday morning.
During the stop, cops say they noticed that Soulja was in possession of a loaded gun — and arrested him on the stop.
Soulja was hauled to a nearby jail — he’s currently being booked.
Good news, Chris Brown looks good, healthier, refreshed. Not so good news, his first appearance in the new year takes place in Washington D.C., in court to reject a plea deal on his pending simple assault charges. Karrueche Tran is also by his side entering the courtroom shortly after him as seen in the video.
Looks like Chris Brown is making some progress in rehab, judging by his looks. He’s certainly getting his grown man on with the three piece suit and simple fade with waves. Only time will tell what his 2014 will be like, let’s hope all of the drama is left in 2013.
