Jailed Chris Brown swears he is innocent, plans to sue victim once he’s released

2013 Billboard Music Awards - Arrivals
Chris Brown has been in jail now for almost five weeks, and we’ve heard blissfully little from him. His legal case is somewhat complicated, as he’s in jail for violating probation from his assault on Rihanna in 2009. Brown and his bodyguard were charged with assault in October, 2013 attack on a man in Washington, DC. Brown is now in a DC jail awaiting his trial, which is due to start today. (It was postponed from April 17.) Brown’s bodyguard has been found guilty of misdemeanor assault for that case. Brown would not be in jail at this time had he successfully completed his second stay in rehab instead of getting kicked out for throwing a rock at his mom’s car windshield.

Hollywood Life has an exclusive in which they claim that Brown is predictably declaring that he’s innocent, and that he intends to sue the assault victim for extortion once he gets out of jail.

Chris is still proclaiming his innocence to anyone who will listen, insisting that he did not attack a man while touring Washington, D.C. in 2013. He feels he’s been wrongfully accused of the crime and he hopes that his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, will testify to his innocence when the singer finally stands trial on April 23.

“He’s not happy, he’s been broken and he’s stuck in jail. This is bulls**t,” a source close to Chris EXCLUSIVELY reveals to HollywoodLife.com. “His bodyguard already told police he’s guilty of hitting this dude so why is Chris still in jail?”

“He didn’t have anything to do with this from the jump and he feels this guy is going after him for money and fame and just because he’s Chris Brown,” the source continues. “It’s nonsense and at the end of the day, he has his freedom and Chris doesn’t. It’s very simple, Chris did not hit anybody!”

We’re told Chris will be seeking revenge on the alleged victim if and when the singer is released from police custody. He plans to take the man to court and sue him!

“He will go after this dude and sue him for extortion,” our source reveals. “He really believes this man lied to police, accused Chris of hitting him so that he could sell his story and then try to pinch Chris for money. That’s not cool because Chris‘ life is on the line and he didn’t do a thing.”

[From Hollywood Life]

Hollywood Life can be tabloidy, but this sounds just like Team Breezy. Chris is such an innocent victim. He conveniently forgets why he’s in jail, because he went into a rage and battered his girlfriend, faked his community service and then blew multiple chances to redeem himself. It’s all the victim’s fault, a guy who was stupid enough to try to take a picture with Chris and ended up getting beat up for his trouble. Chris is facing up to four years in jail and it’s clear that a jail sentence won’t make him take even a modicum of responsibility for his multiple offenses. It’s all someone else’s fault and he’ll show them.

    IDIOT. Too bad they can’t keep him locked up longer. If I had my way he’d be sharing a lovely little cell with Uncle Terry and R Kelly

    • Leigh says:

      Sounds about right to me.
      What blows my mind is that there are people out there making excuses for dirt bags like him…People still buying records and posing for Terry R… I can’t get my head around it…

      • Snazzy says:

        Me neither 🙁
        Breezy, Uncle Terry, all of them are not only very very annoying but the acceptance of their behaviour is sending the wrong message to so many people. You, like it’s ok to abuse & molest people as long as you’re rich and have some kind of marketable “talent”

      • Omega says:

        I dont even get why people buy his records. Between Trey Songs, Neyo, Jason Derullo and grandpa Usher, we have plenty of other ttalented singer-dancers to chose from. And as a bonus these guys are pretty good human beings too.

      • kri says:

        Wow, I wonder what it’s like to go through life with no sense of guilt, nothing weighing on your conscience. Just totally secure in the knowledge that everyone is wrong and at fault except for you. This d!ck is right where he belongs.

      • Katija says:


        Preach. Jason Derulo is pretty fantastic, too. He’s filling whatever void doucheboy left behind. I actually have some dirt from a friend who worked his concert that he’s a bit of a man-whore, but hey! He’s apparently super nice, non-violent, and the girls are all consenting, so eff it. Let him do his thing. 🙂

    • boopti says:

      Lol. Boom. What’s more he got a free one when he and his goons beat up Frank ocean. He should have gone straight to jail then and slithered out of it.

  2. blue marie says:

    Innocent right? That’s why his lawyer was trying to pay off the victim? Totally screams innocence. Dude, STFU and get outta here with that nonsense.

    • Liv says:

      He’s like the male Lindsay Lohan.

    • Omega says:

      How do you know the lawyer is attempting a pay off to the victim? I wouldnt be surprised if he was, I just want to know if he is reckless enough to let something like that leak.

  3. MonicaQ says:

    Saying “Chris Brown didn’t hit anybody” is like saying “MonicaQ did not eat all of those Reese eggs”. It’s a damned lie and you know it.

  4. Sisi says:

    I’ve completely lost count of his antics. Wish I could say the same for Lilo 🙁

    • Lady D says:

      I’d be willing to bet money her rap sheet is 10x longer than his. I am in no way sticking up for the creep, but crackie’s violence record is over a decade long, and that’s just the violence part of her record. They both need to disappear for good.

  5. QQ says:

    Yeah.. Yeah… This Trashbucket..

  6. Eleonor says:

    If it wasn’t for what he did to Rhianna, he could be the male Lohan.

  7. TG says:

    I don’t understand why Chris Brown gets put thru the ringer when Lohan only gets repeated slaps on the wrist. I am not defending him because I think he is a violent punk but so is Lohan. Se kidnapped people in their SUV and chased her assistant. Terrorizing the occupants of the car and her assistant and all th folks in her way.

    • Miffy says:

      They’re both horrific but Lohan’s endangerment comes down to her being an outrageous asshole who can’t think of others, but Chris Brown deliberately and brutally assaulted someone he was substantially physically stronger than in a confined space, ensuring she couldn’t dodge the attack (he attacked her in a car). Brown’s was completely the worse of the two.

      • Kim1 says:

        A better comparison would be Chris Brown vs Charlie Sheen. Charlie has shot, beat and stabbed at least 3 women.

      • Lady D says:

        She has hit how many people with her car and her entitled attitude? She sucker punches, she throws drinks, she drives drunk and higher than a kite. She endangers the general public consistently. Her actions go far beyond just not thinking of others. They are both violent and belong where they can’t hurt others.

  8. Inlike says:

    This guy is too explosive to have just watched from the sidelines as an innocent bystander. But thats just my opinion

  9. msw says:

    What an f’er. of course the suit will never go anywhere, but being on the end of any legal action, frivolous or not, is extremely stressful, time consuming, and expensive.

  10. Jaded says:

    He’s a violent sociopath and probably not able to be rehabilitated. I see a long career ahead of him being a violent a-hole interspersed with repeated stays in jail. Just hope nobody gets killed along the way.

  11. doofus says:

    “he didn’t do a thing”

    except almost beat his GF to death. and throw a chair out of a window at GMA. and get into a bottle-throwing brawl with Drake at a club. and call a female comedian horrible vulgar names during a “twitter feud”. and get into a fight with Frank Ocean over a parking spot. and get busted for a hit-and-run. and throw a rock at his mother’s car.

    nope, he didn’t do a thing.

  12. Quinn says:

    Someone needs to invent an “eject off the planet” button….

  13. lucy2 says:

    So did the victim ask for money? Because it sounds like he wants to sue him for extortion because they THINK that’s what the guy is planning. Doesn’t work like that, morons.

    What a waste. With the opportunities and success he had, he could have made an amazing life for himself and those he cared about (if there is anyone besides himself). But instead, he’s sitting in a jail cell because he’s a rage monster who can’t stay out of trouble.

  14. Feebee says:

    Correct me if I have it wrong but he’s in jail not because of an actual assault this time but because he can’t seem to keep himself out if trouble while on probation?

    If that’s right why can’t his brilliant legal team explain that to him? It’s pretty simple really.

    This reminds me a little of OJ and others who (depending on how you see the original verdicts) got away with a big crime but then got slammed for a lesser crime they may have otherwise not been as severely prosecuted for. What goes around comes around sometimes. Some people push their luck and don’t take hints very well.

    • Lady D says:

      He should be getting the same treatment blohan got when she broke probation time, and time, and time again. She sure as hell didn’t sit in jail for weeks on end when she did. As a matter of fact, if I recall correctly she kept right on doing whatever the hell she wanted. How come CB is sitting in jail? (and again, that is where he belongs)

      • fairyvexed says:

        Looks like Lady D. has taken up the mantle of Chris Brown apologist.

      • Lady D says:

        I have made it very clear I believe he belongs in jail as does Lindsay.

      • Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

        I don’t think an apologist would say someone belongs in jail, don’t know why people keep going to that well when people bring up parity. He’s guilty as hell and he’s finally suffering the consequences and I think Lady’s point is that it would be a good thing if this set a precedent, if more celebrities were brought to book, but really, it won’t.

        Chris Brown, you stupid lard, apart from doing a major overhaul on you character, which is…terrible, you should remember that you aren’t a Charlie Sheen who gets a television show when he acts up, or a Lindsay Lohan who gets a television show when she acts up. Celebrity let you skate by for far too long, now you’re going to thoroughly see how much of a Charlie Sheen you are not, fool.

        In other fool news: you aren’t in jail for the assault, you’re going to sue someone for extortion when none was committed? Who’s telling you that that’s a good idea? Although, if the guy came after him it would completely justified.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        I would much rather the Cracken was getting the same treatment as him, rather than the reverse.

      • jwoolman says:

        Because’s he’s on probation for a violent felony and she was on probation for misdemeanors. His actions have also been indisputably violent in the meantime as well. So the judge wouldn’t let him bail out. If Lindsay gets a felony conviction, she’ll have trouble bouncing out of jail while waiting for probation violation hearings also.

        Judges were fairly lenient with Chris also in the beginning, since he appeared in court as a presentable young man with a well paying job and the tendency is to give such people a second chance rather than just tossing them into prison. If he had kept his nose clean and finished his probation without incident, he would have been home free. Methinks he has blown it too often with the judge since then. I think they really are concerned about his continued tendency toward violence. Lindsay at least hasn’t had a DUI in years, which is the major hazard she poses to society. She hits people occasionally but in more of a civil suit/settle out of court kind of way (here’s hoping nobody gives her a gun, though).

      • Lauraq says:

        Lady D, you come across as an apologist because you said he should be getting the Lilo treatment, which means no punishment. If you aren’t an apologist, you should be saying that Lilo should be getting the Chris Brown treatment.

    • fairyvexed says:

      What people are missing is that Brown lays his hands on people. I love it when people accuse Lohan of “kidnapping”- – –technically, if you grab somebody’s hand and take them from here to there you’ve kidnapped them. Brown certainly did that to Rihanna. Funny people don’t want to charge him with that. Brown also does this stuff sober, it seems. Get Lohan off whatever she’s on, she’d probably stop. Him?

      • jwoolman says:

        Fairyvexed- Lohan really did something incredibly dangerous that could have killed her, the baffled kidnapees, and other people in her path. She hijacked a car with people in it (who were understandably reluctant to touch this raving lunatic, since as a small woman she would have claimed they tried to assault her), while she was drunk and high on cocaine, and tried to chase down a car driven by the mother of her ex-assistant (who was terrified, she was able to call the police from her car and they told her to aim for the police station, where Lohan was arrested). An ordinary mortal without a team of expensive lawyers would indeed have been charged with kidnapping, hijacking, and many other things. She was just lucky that she was a first-timer in court and nobody got killed.
