Chris Brown went to court today over allegations he cheated on the community service he was ordered to perform after being convicted of beating up Rihanna in 2009.
So, naturally, Rihanna went with him.
Rihanna sat quietly in the gallery with Chris's mom as Brown and his lawyer Mark Geragos told the judge the singer did nothing wrong, according to TMZ.
Prosecutors believe Brown tried duping the court by getting Virginia officials to say he completed service at a day care center that he never actually performed.
At the hearing, Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos accused prosecutors of persecuting his client.
"The D.A. is paralyzed with the thought (Brown's) probation will be terminated," Geragos said. "If that happens they won't be able to jock him around like they've been jocking him around."
We're pretty sure "jocking" doesn't mean what Geragos thinks it means.
Wednesday, the judge said he needed more time to review all of the evidence presented by the D.A., and ordered Brown to meet with his probation officer within 48 hours to discuss the situation.
The judge says he wants to hear from the probation officer after the meeting, and scheduled the next hearing for April 5.
Brown and Rihanna left the courtroom arm-in-arm.
DISNEY TO DO MANY 'STAR WARS' FILMS: Sounds like Disney is going to go hog-wild with "Star Wars."
The Walt Disney Co. on Tuesday unveiled plans to make a number of spinoff movies set in the "Star Wars" universe, in addition filming Episodes 7-9.
Entertainment Weekly reported it learned details on two of the spinoffs projects: once concerning a young Han Solo, another on Boba Fett.
Walt Disney Co. chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced the plan Tuesday as part of the company's quarterly earnings report, according to IMDB.com. He said screenwriters working on the stand-alone films are Simon Kinberg ("Mr. & Mrs. Smith," "Sherlock Holmes") and Lawrence Kasdan ("The Empire Strikes Back," "Raiders of the Lost Ark").
The pair is also involved in the drafting of the new trilogy, with Michael Arndt ("Little Miss Sunshine," "Toy Story 3") penning the first of the series, which J.J. Abrams will direct. That film is scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.
Well, this is certainly better news than a movie about a young Jar-Jar Binks.
Lucasfilm and Disney declined comment.
The Han Solo story would take place between "Revenge of the Sith" and "A New Hope." The Boba Fett film would take place either between "A New Hope" and "The Empire Strikes Back," or between "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi." In the prequels, we learned he was the son of the original storm trooper clone, played by Temuera Morrison, who's still the right age for the part.
The Han Solo and Boba Fett projects would also allow Darth Vader to return, giving us all a chance to forget what a whiny little mess he was before Obi-Wan Kenobi dumped him into the lava.
Ain't It Cool reported Monday that a Yoda film may be in the works, and earlier last month Vulture reported Zack Snyder may create a Seven Samurai-inspired Star Wars spinoff, although the filmmaker later said that was untrue.
JOHN TRAVOLTA SEXUAL BATTERY SUIT DROPPED: John Travolta is officially off the hook.
Cruise ship employee Fabian Zanzi, who sued Travolta, claiming he exposed himself to him and gave him some sort of improper embrace in 2009, has dropped the case, just days after a Southern California judge ruled the case could proceed to trial, according to TMZ.
Sounds like someone opened his checkbook.
Travolta's lawyers argued his cruise ticket stipulated that any dispute between the passenger and the cruise company be settled in arbitration. The judge quashed that idea Friday, saying the matter wasn't between Travolta and the cruise line; it was between Travolta and Zanzi.
TMZ said the case was officially dismissed Monday but terms -- if any -- weren't disclosed.
MICHAEL JACKSON'S KIDS NEED MORE MONEY: Executors of Michael Jackson's estate are asking a judge to provide more money to TJ Jackson to care for Michael's three children.
Michael's nephew TJ is acting as surrogate parent to Paris, Prince and Blanket, and is their co-guardian, along with their grandmother Katherine. According to TMZ, TJ is struggling to provide for the children financially, as he has his own wife and three kids to provide for.
Paperwork filed with the court say TJ spends 40 hours a week caring for Michael's children. Although he's been a co-guardian since July, he hasn't received any money from the estate, according to TMZ.
The executors are asking the judge to allow them to pay TJ $9,000 a month, retroactive to July.
REPORT SAYS JUSTIN BIEBER HAD FLING WITH RIHANNA: Life & Style magazine said Justin Bieber had a fling with Rihanna.
Right ... that Justin Bieber. Yeah, the one who looks like he's 11.
The Huffington Post reported the magazine said Selena Gomez called off her two-year relationship with Bieber after discovering Bieber cheated on her with Rihanna during the early stages of their relationship.
Maybe Rihanna was drinking or something and mistook him for an adult.
"It really cut like a knife because it happened in February of 2011, when Selena and Justin had been dating for months and were falling in love. It's caused Selena to question their entire relationship," a source told Life & Style.
The friend supposedly said Bieber and Rihanna hooked up after an evening of flirting at the NBA All-Star game in February 2011. It's true Bieber and Rihanna were spotted sitting next to each other. Bieber would have been a week shy of his 17th birthday, while Rihanna would have been 22.
And because Bieber is so gangster, er, gangsta, he happens to be friends with Chris Brown, Rihanna's ex and current boyfriend who sometimes punches people. So either it didn't happen, Brown didn't know about it, or he punched Bieber and they moved on.
A rep for Bieber denied Bieber's relationship with Rihanna has ever been anything more than friendly, but the magazine's source claimed "Justin would never admit to it; he would never tell anyone he messed around with Rihanna."
Right. What guy would want anyone to know that?
Bieber and Gomez broke up in early January, but were spotted together last weekend at a show in West Hollywood.
JENNIFER LAWRENCE HEARTS JOHN STAMOS: Jennifer Lawrence admits she would pretty much stalk John Stamos if she could get away with it.
Never mind the 49-year-old Stamos probably has socks older than 22-year-old Lawrence. While being interviewed by Conan O'Brien recently, Lawrence talked about what a mess she was while meeting Stamos at a party.
"He was at a party, and I turned into a perverted guy," Lawrence told Conan. "I was, like, following him into rooms and staring at his ass. I lost my mind. And I got so upset -- I didn't want to meet him because when I meet people, it's never good, and I was avoiding him, but then my friends brought him over because my friends are jerks, and I started really freaking out and he asked me if I was on mushrooms and I was like, 'No. I'm dead sober. This is just me.'"
Jennifer Lawrence is the greatest human being who has ever lived in Hollywood.
Of course, this all came as news to Stamos, according to MSN.com.
"For the first time I was totally oblivious," he tweeted. When a follower said he envied Stamos for having Jennifer Lawrence salivate over his rear end, he replied, "I envy myself!"
