Brown Angles for Deal

Let’s see what Rihanna fans think of this: Singer Chris Brown is trying to cut a deal and plead guilty to a misdemeanor to avoid jail time for his alleged assault of his pop star girlfriend. Brown has been charged with two felonies in last month’s attack, but TMZ reports Brown’s “people have consulted with outside legal eagles…who have said Rihanna’s own aggressiveness takes it out of the felony category.” Sources tell the website she was the first to strike, hitting him several times after seeing a text message from another woman. Not surprisingly, other “experts” are pouring cold water on Brown’s strategy.
