Chris Brown is still in Los Angeles awaiting his upcoming court date and police are now telling media sources that additional charges may be filed against him when the case is presented to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
The 19-year-old has also canceled his scheduled appearances during All-Star Weekend.
He had been tapped to introduce the players with Shaquille O’Neal before tip-off at Phoenix’s US Airways Center.
The basketball fan had also been planning to play Friday in the annual All-Star Celebrity Game, part of the weekend-long festivities.
As reported, Chris was charged with one count felony criminal threats against Rihanna on Sunday and is expected to attend court on March 5th. Chris has hired popular defense attorney, Mark Geragos to represent him.
T.I. SPOKE TO CHRIS ON MONDAY
In an interview with Carson Daly, T.I. said he spoke to Chris Brown on Monday.
T.I. maintained that he is unaware of what exactly happened during the Sunday incident, however, T.I. said people should refrain from judging Brown:
“Yeah, I spoke to him today. He cool, you know. I guess he a little concerned about the situation, but he’s still the same Chris. I told him this too shall pass.
Hey man, you people gotta remember, we celebrities and we entertainers but we still human. All of us…Don’t expect us not to make mistakes ‘cause we will.”
T.I., who has his own set of legal woes, is going to be doing a year in prison for pleading guilty to US federal weapons charges. He expected to go into custody next month.
Rihanna’s Grandmother reportedly told a Barbados newspaper that her granddaughter is well and does not have a broken nose and other major injuries like previously reported on other no name blogs:
“I don’t want people to worry. Rihanna is fine and she is doing well,” she said.
Rihanna also postponed a concert in Malaysia that was set for Friday night, according to the show’s promoter.
“In light of recent events involving Rihanna, the artist management will confirm within two weeks from now on a replacement date to be mutually agreed by Pineapple Concerts and the artist,” the company said.
The promoter stressed that it was “not a cancellation but a postponement” and told those who bought tickets to hold on to them for a rescheduled date.
Rihanna was planning on celebrating her 21st birthday on Feb. 20 with a big party in New York City. However, her music label has, understandably, canceled it, which it had been putting together for about a month.
