Chris Brown Pleads Not Guilty

Chris Brown appears in court with his attorney, Mark Geragos, for his arraignment at the Superior Court of Los Angeles County in Los Angeles, California on Monday (March 6).

Chris is charged with two felonies for the alleged assault on Rihanna during an argument on Feb. 8, 2009.

The 19-year-old Forever singer pleaded “not guilty, your honor”, when asked for his plea by L.A. Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg.

    NOT GUILTY? Face the music douchebag…pay the piper….hmm..NOT GUILTY? Oh year….either was OJ..Ridiculous indeed.

  • Shisha

    Not surprising……………………………………… I don’t mix up professional career with personal problems so I still think he’s a great entertainer/singer/performer (I saw him in concert just one week before he beat the hell out of Rihanna) and shouldn’t get negativity and criticism protesting of his undeniable talent. But as a human, and especially, as a GIRL, I hope he’ll get the fair punishment he deserves for daring to put his hands on a girl. Real men do not do this.

  • LALA

    i know what he did was wrong
    but i kinda feel bad for him looking at this pictures

  • nikki

    Honestly if he wasnt famous and stuff he definetely would have proved guilty like wattt the f****

  • comments for jared

    I agree Shisha….we all saw the photo..we all read the description of what happened….did she do it to herself? I think not. It is time to step up and take responsiblity for his actions…take time away from water sports and the public and seek professional council. He still wants the public to respect him and buy his “gift”? Ridiculous. He has high powered lawyers and a spin team so it won’t be long before we hear it was done for fun and that it was to help bring attention to this..ha ha….and then next year he’ll be at the kids choice awards and may even win a Grammy…God Bless the USA.

  • http://Goawaybeyonce hATE HIM

    I HATE HIM!!! NOT GUILTY? HAHA, DON’T THINK SO!!
    Rihanna forever!

  • Lisa

    NOT GUILTY MY ASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]

    loser.
    .
    he’s really insulting everyones intelligence. he should just man-up and admit it (plead guilty). rihanna didn’t beat her own ass.
    .
    fcuking coward.

  • victoria

    i totally agree with #4
    he is very talented guy, but if take for judjement this story with rihanna…

    i wish he realized how bad is what he did…

  • comments for jared

    …and ya know one of those lawyers hired an acting coach in order for him to say “not guilty” without laughing and he practiced really hard in the bathroom mirror his sad face and was told to shower and wear a tie. I am sure it won’t be long before we will see the poor innocent child with a copy of the Bible in his hands with a Rhianna Bookmark facing the cameras…the next day we will see him looking sad ..biting his lower lip on the way into a building with a BIG SIGN on the front door that says “Counciling” ..and then the MONEY SHOT…perhaps a single glycerin tear falling down his ohhh soo sad face on the cover of “People”…then of course the public will get all emotional and forget all about it and make him a Grammy Winner. He’s so photogenic he will probably play himself in the movie. But the truth of the matter is..CHRIS BROWN IS GUILTY.

  • dundies

    im calling b-ullshit on this.

    hes as guilty as heidi montag is for producing an album

    What a moron! Pleading Not guilty?? Not exactly a way to show your public that you are stepping up and taking responsibility! Big Mistake on his part!

  • loco

    why is this whole crap of a situation still being referred to as an “alleged” assault. We all know he did it, and there’s ample amount of proof that he did.

    Its so pathetic I don’t even have the words.

  • CB is a punk bitch

    @ comments for jared
    ur comment is so funny because it’s exactly what i think will happen. it’s ridiculous how narrow minded people can be.
    the fact of the matter is chris brown is a punk bitch that can’t be man enough and face the heat for a crime he committed. his ass should be in jail but hollywood has a different law system so i am not counting on that to happen.

    on a side note, i can’t imagine how his career will be back.
    i mean can u imagine him at a concert singing girl, let me take you down, i really wanna take you down with his moves and the female audience drooling over him.
    ughhhhh………….. i think i’m gonna vomit now.

  • Denice

    As a mom of a 19 year old son it breaks my heart for both of them that they are going thru this. I have to say that he is a very young person and a very young person that makes a lot of money and I feel he has not been well advised about what he should and can do now when there is time. He should first and foremost be going to therapy to help with this problem. He did something terrble but he is so young that I think with help he can stop this from happening again. He is not a monster I see him as a very ill advised boy and my heart breaks for him actually for both of them, I think that if my son would have made a mistake like this I would be the first one to step in and try to get him some help but I guess then again my son doesn’t make millions of dollars.

  • dd

    sorry i don’t think chris did it so just leave him a lone

  • woman beater in jail

    @ dd
    please for the life of God tell me who then did it? i am dying to know.

  • Truthfully

    Let me take you down…(like I did Rhianna) LMAO
    Okay all jokes aside, I love his music. I will not let his…anger rampage on Rhianna’s manish face come between me not buying his CD’s, but personally, though he does look ever so sad in the photos, pleading not guilty after we all now he biiitchslapped her so hard in the car was a really stupid move on Brown’s part. But then again, he will get away with it because Rhianna is seen everyday looking ever so fine in her recent pap pictures like it never happened so it LOOKS like (you know from the outside looking in) that she wasn’t at all damaged by the hand that slammed her face in thus making it seem that Chris actually did nothing and people will probably forget about it. Even though we all know he is guilty, it LOOKS to me (again, on the outside looking in) and possible a lot of other people judging by her actions and her face now (no scars…only a bunch of make up making her look like Micheal Jackson) that she’s good and that he is indeed not guilty.

  • Anon

    “Not guilty” doesn’t mean, “Innocent.” Chris’ lawyer is buying time for him. Chris really, really doesn’t want a trial. If there’s a trial, all the pictures the police took will be made public. All the injuries will be made public. They could force Rihanna to testify and she will have to say truthfully, who did that to her.

    They don’t need her testimony for a conviction, but the possibility of her testifying would scare the crap out of them. Also, they have her blood spattered all over the inside of the car, they even have Chris’s DNA in her bite marks! The hospital personnel and the police who responded to the neighbor’s call will testify. There is also a strong possibility that her PA will say that Chris called her and admitted what happened. He even asked her if Rihanna gave his name to the police.

    Chris and Rihanna aren’t together. But a lot of the people she has to work with, including people close to Chris, have her scared. She is under pressure to help make it go away and to keep her mouth shut. That’s why the court said to tape his phone calls. And all calls from people who would try to act on his behalf and threaten her to shut up. This is the ugly side of the music business. Rihanna wants this to go away so the publicity doesn’t ruin her endorsements and her ability to work.

  • Tealeaf

    Why did anyone think he was pleading gulity today…?

  • commenter

    Why would Rihanna do this to herself? it’s not like he’s going to get jail time! he’s just a loser women beater!!!

  • comments for jared

    ….After glancing at the pics….I think his Stylist should be fired!!!!
    He is all in black…WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? Innocent people always wear WHITE to Court….freshly pressed….with a crucifix necklace hanging outside ..falling gently over his heart. I would rethink the Bling …the earrings look thug like…(just for now….he can get his ears repierced later when he gets to the Resort). I’m thinking maybe a red string around his wrist, and definitely a well worn copy of the Bible in his left hand…with the title facing out to the cameras. It would be great if a pamphlet from some women’s shelter fell out and gently fell to the floor infront of the papprazzi….and WHERE is his MOTHER in all these pics? She should be crying and holding her baby…oh man…does that sell pics and get the public all riled up!!! I say get the people on it!!! THIS IS A SHOW AFTER ALL!!!

    PLEASE LET IT REST, folks!!

  • nuclear vagina

    He better not walk! I hope he goes to prison and gets what’s coming to him.

  • Yar

    Of course he’s not guilty, Rhianna beat herself up. *rme*

  • sue

    gerard vandenberg?

    let it rest? YOu are the biggest idiot if you think that way!

    He needs to pay for what he did. period.

  • marisa

    WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD. HE’S GETTING OFF JUST LIKE OJ DID!!!!!!

  • stepho

    are you kidding me? this is ridiculous. idgaf if youre rich and famous or whatever, this goes for ALL women, if you hit a woman you should some sort of punishment. this makes me furious that he is getting away with this and will walk away from this like nothing ever happened. hopefully people will treat him differntly, but sadly i think people are going to welcome him with open arms. when things like this happen its like giving every women who has been abused a big slap in the face. its just saying ‘oh no one cares that i hit you, i got away with it’. and you know that low-life is not going to change no matter how many times he says he is and whatever. once a man hits a woman and gets away with it he will continue to do no matter what.
    and men who beat women are the most saddest and pathetic disgusting scumbags.

  • comments for jared

    …I am now thinking the clothing should be tighter…let’s distract from the “whatever he’s in court for”…let’s play up the sexiness factor…let’s try thinner fabrics….lighter colours….and be sure he does some sit ups and push ups before he leaves the mini van so them muscles are all pumped up for the cameras…. The sad face needs a bit more work…not 100% yet guys….and I think if Central Casting could provide a few children with afflictions outside the Court House that Chris could pose with and make their day that would help as well. If one could miraculously start to walk? just saying… that would be COVER MATERIAL!! Maybe he could stretch at some point during a papprazzi/court break and show off a hint of those abs…the public LOVES that shit and soon…he’ll be back at the TOP BABY!! GOLD!!

  • Serena

    He makes me sick and I just all respect for Rihanna
    How can you still want to be with a person and be touched by hands when they once slammed you in the face, like seriously!

  • Anon

    I agree that “not guilty” doesn’t mean innocent. The one thing that strikes me as I look at pictures of this smug punk is that in his own mind he is still denying this! He refuses to accept responsibility. If I could, I’d slap the crap out of him. The expression on his face disgusts me. Geragos is notorious for draggin things out and getting delays. I think Chris and his lawyers are just going to keep getting postponements until the general public forgets about it. I would love to read that someone kicked Chris Brown’s ass. Really good. Like with huge lumps on his face and head, split lip, busted nose, choking, bites bruises on his legs and arms, the full treatment. And I hope whoever does it is a black belt and weighs twice as much as he does. That would be the fair thing to do.

  • Mousse

    The boy just ruined his self respect and his carreer.
    Shame on him.

  • comments for jared

    …I just thought that we really need more Rihanna in this picture…..she shouldn’t just “Take a Bow” and hide under her “Umbrella”. Perhaps she should attend the court case on the 29th..again wearing white…with a big fan and that Covergirl smile. Upon lawyer Mark Gerigos’ cue..(.he could drop a quarter errr…..something like that)..Rihanna could shed a tear and faint in the courtroom…think of the frenzy and the headlines!!! Not since Liz and Richard has a love been soo strong. It will inspire a hit song..a People Choice Award..a tv movie of the week and everyone will live happily ever after from endorsements/books/recordings/photo shoots and pillow cases….this is becoming the greatest show since “Roseanne”. Bring it….

    As a mum, I totally agree with you. Just because you have a person who has anger management issues doesn’t mean the person is a complete, irredeemable ar$e hole.
    .
    However, he needs to work out how to manage his anger in a far more effective way than beating the sh*t out of the person who angered him.
    .
    Also, as a mother, I was chatting with another group of mums with children ranging from 6 years to 13 years of age – both boys and girls. And this is what we all agreed on this:

    Boys, don’t hit girls. You walk away. Even if the girl has been an absolute b*tch. Just walk away.

    Girls, even if you contributed to the anger by being an absolute b*tch, walk away from the boy who hit you. Yes, learn from your mistakes and take responsibility for your role in riling up the guy so you don’t
    .
    (a) date a man who has anger management issues
    .
    (b) improve your own behaviour, there are better ways to put your point of view across then being a total b*tch.
    .
    BUT, the guy has crossed a line with you by hitting you and you just have to walk away from him. There’s no going back to the guy. It’s finished.
    .
    And whether for boys or girls, never accept verbal and emotional abuse either. Being called stupid and useless etc. This is not how emotionally mature people who love each other fight. There are more constructive ways.
    .
    It’s not clear that Rihanna has gone back to Chris. Here’s hoping that she didn’t.
    .

  • Dest

    WTF !!! He is guilty and all the people knows that !!!

    WoW poor Chris poor Chris !!! :0 When he beat Rihanna (Poor CB), When he was Jet Skiing (Poor CB), When he was playing basketball…
    F.U.C.K. CHRIS BROWN!

    He never learn his lesson by beat a woman ! And in the court with all the cameras he was the good boy !!! and his stupid teenage fans believe the poor Chris face !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF ?!

    PEOPLE WHO STILL SUPORTING HIM ARE LOOSERS !!! REAL LOOSERS !!!

  • lylian

    CORRECTION: THIS SHOULD READ:

    Yes, learn from your mistakes and take responsibility for your role in riling up the guy so you
    .
    (a) DON’T date a man who has anger management issues
    .
    (b) DO improve your own behaviour, there are better ways to put your point of view across then being a total b*tch.

  • Chris Brown, I still Love him

    There really is no point in hating Chris Brown, all you people with your negative insulting comments carry on like he did the worst crime possible in the world, well he didn’t!!! this is only a big issue because involves two big celebrities and the fact that he didn’t beat up just any girl but Rihanna, princess rir as they call her.

    Personally I think she was at fault two, we still haven’t heard his side yet and there is a reason for him to plead not guilty. If it goes to trail we will get to hear the whole story!!! and we will get to know what Rihanna did or said to him, what the fight was about and how exactly it went down.
    I ain’t buying her report, so I say good on Chris because Rihanna is either lying or exaggerating somethings in the report, reasons for her to want it all over quickly, that’s why she is not pressing charges and doesn’t want trail. her business would put out there and we will all get to know what kind of mean aggressive bitch she is

  • bobbi

    Yeah, right #42, love men who beat women.

  • lady

    @ #42 You should like you are very young and very naive – that is sweet and all but one day when you are older you will realise that you cannot excuse the behaviour of any role model…

    Because of your love for Chris Brown you immediately put the blame on Rihanna – that is bad judgement and is telling of your age…nothing wrong with that but please try to be open minded and not tarnish the other party – you were not there, facts are facts – she was beaten – he was not….

    Another thing – You should be your own role model that way you will never be let down – I had too many role models that let me down – never again…

    RELY ON YOURSELF, BE THE BEST YOU CAN, AND TRY TO LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH ALL RESPECT FOR HUMANITY…

    I wish you luck!

    go to jail like everyone else!
    it makes me sad that people stand up for him. he did it . end of story.
    theirs the pictures, the car, the description, rihanna. chris brown isnt denying what he did. except he doesnt want to jail for it . he should go to jail
    he made a mistake my ass. he knew full well what he was doing. he wasnt drunk. if you think that he’ll stop after the first time well he wont every abuser ends up abusing someone else a second time and on and on
    they just cant get it out of their system. he’s a pathetic use of a human
    and he’s going ot get away from jail just like oj did
    but then ti got in jail so maybe’ll they’ll put him in jail

  • Simone

    Typical abuser, look how sorry for himself he looks, “boo hoo why is everyone picking on me”. Pathetic excuse for a man.

  • Sadfornatashasfamily

    LALA, I feel a little worse for Rihana after seeing the pictures of her when HE BEAT her!

  • Baited

    #42 Don’t mind those two saying you are immature, they are judging based on the media.

    You are on to something there & her aggression is well known.

    I will say this:

    Chris that girl set you up and you took the Bait!!!!

    No one to blame but yourself, you should have listened to your Mom.

    She is still not the girl for you…. Live & Learn.

  • http://- amore bambini

    yeah i totally agree. just because a rapper happens to have undeniable talent, it doesn’t mean he can beat the guts out of someone and walk away a free man..
    justice applies to EVERYONE
    rapper or not.
    No man is called a bastard until he beats the hell out of someone and walks away saying
    ‘NOT GUILTY’ xxx
