Rapper Chris Brown was seen participating in the 2014 Summer Classic Charity Basketball Game at Barclays Centre in New York City. He was seen practicing ahead of the game's start, with his ex, Rihanna, sat in the front row, using her phone.
The game appears as one of the few times the ex-couple have been seen together, after Chris Brown was issued a restraining order following assault charges against Brown after he domestically abused Rihanna in 2009. The order forbade Brown from being within fifty yards (later reduced to ten) from Rihanna, before it was announced they were allowed to appear together at award shows together.
Ahead of the release of his upcoming album, Chris Brown was seen participating in the 2014 Summer Classic Charity Basketball Game.

Brown was seen arriving, meeting and greeting, and participating in a group photo of the team before the game began. Brown was able to get his hands on the ball in the opening minute of the game, taking a shot at the hoop moments later.
Brown was seen participation in the event, ahead of the release of his sixth studio album's release in September, 2014. The album, entitled 'X', will contain two discs, each comprising of ten songs and will feature appearances from Lil Wayne, Usher, Akon and more.
The hip hop boss is said to be in hospital after multiple shots were fired during the star studded party.
Music producer Suge Knight has reportedly been injured after a shooting at a pre-VMA party in Los Angeles, hosted by singer Chris Brown. Witnesses say that 25 year old Brown, was the target of the gunman, but was thought to have been unharmed. Knight, 49, is said to have been shot six times during the incident and is currently thought to be recovering in intensive care, according to TMZ.
Suge Knight had been attending a pre VMA party
TMZ reports that Knight was “shot in the stomach and arm and apparently in other places as well.” The site quotes model Tyson Beckford, Robert Ri'chard and Apple de Ap all saying that they were inside the pre-VMA party when they heard “four shots ring out inside the club.”
Drake has announced his fourth album, "Views From The Six", though recording is yet to start.
The world’s favorite Canadian rapper has announced another album. “Views From The 6”, Drake’s fourth offering so far, will be released under the emerging OVO Sound, Drake’s own label. Although he’s announced the album, according to Rolling Stone recording won’t begin until after his tour with Lil Wayne concludes on September 27th, 2014, and the album itself likely won’t drop until spring of next year. Drake is currently set to perform his sold-out OVO Fest in Toronto, Canada alongside Outkast and mystery guests, beginning August 3rd, after which he’ll move on to his international tour and then the studio.
Drake, pictured here at the JUNO Awards, is up for another award - The Polaris
Though theories abound about the vague title, one popular speculation as told by Billboard.com claims it as a reference to his hometown of Toronto, where the primary area codes are 416 and 647. Friend and fellow OVO Sound musician Jimmy Prime reportedly gave Toronto the nickname of “The 6” due to the codes’ common digit. Coupled with his video for “Started From The Bottom” which depicted him working in Canadian chain Shoppers Drug Mart and rapping in the snow, “Views From The 6” lies naturally within the same vein as his frequent Toronto shoutouts.

A recap of some of the most prominent assault cases in entertainment this year.
The assault cases in the entertainment business just keep coming. After Chris Brown, Justin Bieber and most recently, Wiz Khalifa, have all faced assault charges, the unfortunate trend is apparently moving across the pond. Former N-Dubz member Dappy has been fined £800 for slapping a man outside Chicago’s in Clemsford after an event back in February. According to BBC News Dappy, 27, faced trial at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court under his real name Dino Costas Contostavlos. Mr Contostavlos was also told to pay a victim surcharge of £80 and costs of £930. He is only the latest to go down in a disturbing series of high profile cases of violence.
Dappy is in abundant, if not very flattering company these days.
At the beginning of the year, former pop sweetheart Justin Bieber was charged with assault after allegedly getting in a brawl with a Toronto limo driver. The incident took place in December 2013.
Justin Bieber and Chris Brown appear to be collaborating on a new track together. Bieber uploaded a picture of himself with Brown on to Instagram hinting that they may be working together.
Justin Bieber and Chris Brown have reunited and appear to have recorded a track together as Bieber hinted on his Instagram. The 20-year-old posted two pictures of himself with Chris Brown and an entourage on Saturday (14th June) and yesterday (16th).
Justin Bieber and Chris Brown appear to be teaming up for a duet again.
One picture was of Bieber and Brown together and the 'Baby' singer had captioned it: "Studio, me and CB did one for the fans." Another showed Bieber and Brown standing next to each other in the studio surrounded by posing members of their entourage. The latter was simply captioned "studio".
Out on June 2, Chris Brown was partying just days later.
In the world of fallen celebrities this week, Chris Brown is out of jail and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran is chair of the “welcome home” committee. Brown got released after spending 80 days behind bars for violating his probation in the Rihanna case of 2009. Back in October of 2013, he got in an altercation in Washington, for which he got a total of 108 days in correctional facilities, including rehab.
Now that Brown is out of jail, will he get back to music?
All of that seemed forgotten at Brown’s 2-in-1 homecoming and birthday celebration – he turned 25 on May 5, but a party obviously wasn’t an option at that point. Tran posted several photos from the night, including one snap of herself, giving Brown a kiss – in case we were confused about their relationship maybe.
After being behind bars since March, the 25 year-old singer is a free man and now he plans to go "back to the music and the fans."
Chris Brown is finally a free man.
After nearly four months behind bars, the 25 year-old singer was released from a Los Angeles County Jail on Monday (June 2nd).

Chris Brown's assault trial in Washington D.C. will begin on Monday (21st April). Brown and his bodyguard are facing assault charges resulting from an incident in October 2013 in which they allegedly attacked a man after he jumped in on a picture fans were taking of Brown.
Chris Brown's assault trial will begin on Monday (21st April) a judge ruled on Friday (18th April). Brown has been accused of, alongside his bodyguard, assaulting a man in Washington D.C. last October.
Brown made a brief court appearance on Friday where a judge ruled, with onlookers including Brown's mother and rapper Bow Wow, Brown's trial will begin next week.

At the time of the alleged assault in Washington, Brown was on probation thus he may be jailed as a result of breaking this. Brown's probably was the result of his conviction for assaulting his assault then-girlfriend Rhianna in 2009. Brown still has a number of hours of community service left over from this conviction, something which has also caused him legal troubles over the last year.

The 24 year-old singer rang his on-off girlfriend to forward a message of thanks to his fans after he was sent to jail for being kicked out of rehab last month.
Chris Brown seems to be doing a lot of thinking as he is behind bars for the third straight week.
The 24 year-old singer wanted to reach out to his devoted fans, known as 'Team Breezy,' to thank them for their support.
And he found a way to do it!
Continue reading: Chris Brown Thanks Fans And Karrueche Tran From Prison Phone
Things are looking up for Chris Brown, more or less.
Oh, Chris Brown. Breezy has been diagnosed with a mental disorder, which means we should all go easy on him for any odd and out of touch behavior. This one isn’t about his behavior though. Last week, when Brown was sentenced to a month in jail, after he was thrown out of rehab, it seemed like his goose was well and truly cooked. Those high-paid lawyers are a miracle in a tight spot, however, and Brown’s attorney apparently managed to make a deal.
Breezy isn't going through the best time in his life, but this is one thing he won't have to worry about soon.
According to TMZ, Breezy’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, has found the lawyer for the man, who claims to have had his nose broken by Brown in D.C. and offered him a large amount of settlement money.
Brown has been jailed for a month before his next hearing.
Reporting on Chris Brown’s behavior is becoming redundant at this point, if not just plain wrong – it’s no secret mental illness and life in the public eye don’t really make the best combination. The singer’s bizarre behavior in court on Monday proved that beyond any doubt.
The troubling account of Brown's behavior in rehab led to the judge extending his jail time.
Representatives of Brown’s former rehab facility, which refused to continue treating the star last week, were present and cited some of the singer’s most shocking moments as reasons for the decision, according to TMZ.

The singer is still struggling to find the help he need.
And on and on it goes – Chris Brown is now out of rehab, but not free. It’s sort of an “out of the frying pan and into the fire” situation, as Brown has been thrown out of his rehab facility and sent to jail. On Friday, the singer was transferred due to a “failure to comply with the rules and regulations of the facility.”
Brown just can't seem to keep it together these days.
According to the folks at TMZ, the eviction was not related to Brown’s staples of substance abuse or violence. However, they haven’t fished out the exact reason for Brown’s latest round of trouble.His newest problem might be due to his bipolar disorder with which the troubled celebrity was recently diagnosed. According to a letter from the facility as reported by The Hollywood Reporter, “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.”

The diagnosis brings some context to Brown's violent behavior.
Chris Brown has had some infamous bouts of aggression and unpleasant behavior over the past few years. According to the rehab facility he recently checked into, the singer has been suffering from bipolar disorder and PTSD, contributing to his outbursts.
The diagnosis would explain, but not excuse Brown's violent behavior.

A terrific true story is oddly underplayed in this sober, sedate drama about reconciliation and making peace with the past. Strikingly complex performances from Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman help give the film some deeper resonance, even if even it all seems rather under-powered. But the force of emotion in the events makes the film worth a look.
In 1980 Scotland, railway expert Eric (Firth) has defined his entire life by trains. During the Second World War, he was captured by the Japanese and put into forced-labour to build a railway in Thailand. And more recently he met his wife Patti (Kidman) on a train journey. But their marriage starts to collapse when Eric refuses to face up to his torture at the hands of his wartime captors all those years ago, so Patti turns to his war-veteran pal Finlay (Skarsgard) for help. Eventually, Eric makes the difficult decision to return to Thailand and confront his tormenter Nagase (Sanada).
A more Hollywood-style film would play out as a build-up to roaring vengeance, but director Teplitzky internalises the tone, showing us past events in extensive flashbacks as the young Eric and Finlay (Irvine and Reid) try to subvert the young Nagase (Ishida) at every turn. These scenes are eerily tame as well, and only reveal the true horror of Eric's experience when he finally faces up to it himself. Instead, the focus is on his struggle to forgive Nagase, and this gives the film a strongly moving punch.

The singer was offered a plea deal to reduce misdemeanour charges but rejected it.
Chris Brown told a judge on Wednesday that he rejects a plea deal on a charge involving the allegation that the singer hit a man outside a hotel in Washington D.C. His bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, also faces the same charge.
Chris Brown Has Rejected A Plea Deal In A Case That Involves Alleged Assault.
Prosecutors reportedly offered a deal in which Brown would receive a reduced sentence if he pleaded guilty to the misdemeanour assault charge he faces. Brown maintains that he is not guilty and therefore rejected the deal, according to one of his lawyers, Danny Onorato, via Billboard.
The singer says that he is not guilty and he's sticking by his decision

Brown met and posed with fans during the charity drive

Surely this time he'll come out like a modern day Mother Theresa
It take an especially angry kind of guy to get kicked out of a rehab centre whose sole purpose is dealing with anger management issues, but that's exactly what happened to Chris Brown earlier this month. As his first stint in anger management clearly didn't work, the Los Angeles Probation Department have come up with a novel way of making him pay for his latest violent rage: by sending him back into anger management.
Brown was kicked out of anger management for being too angry
According to TMZ, who broke the story, Brown was kicked out of the Malibu-based rehab centre after only two weeks after he allegedly flew into a violent rage whilst at the centre, with stuff getting thrown and rants being had. With Brown only in rehab as a sort of pleas bargain with the Probation Dept, when it was revealed that he was kicked out of the rehab facility it looked as though Brown had finally hit the end of the road and would at last end up in jail. This wasn't the case however, as Chris continues to avoid jail.
Chris Brown finds himself in more hot water with the law as an LA judge sends him back to rehab for 3 months.
Chris Brown was supposedly finally getting his issues straightened out, but that does not seem to be the case.
The singer entered a rehabilitation facility in Malibu "to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behaviour," on October 29th.
However the two weeks' worth of treatment he received didn't resolve anything.
Chris Brown has left a rehabilitation centre but is "continuing his rehab program as an outpatient" while completing his community service.
Chris Brown has finally left a rehabilitation facility.
The 24 year-old checked out on Thursday (Nov 14th) after receiving two weeks' worth of treatment and he will now begin his community service.
E!News reported, Brown will continue the rehab program until it is complete with a rep for the singer telling the gossip site;
After just over 2 weeks of rehab for anger issues, Chris Brown signs out to finish his community service.
Chris Brown's alleged 3-month stay in rehab has been dropped to just 16 days after he was forced to leave to complete his community service hours for another offence.
The 'Don't Wake Me Up' singer must be having a hard time keeping up with all his legal issues - especially when they find themselves overlapping.
After a recent case whereby Brown was charged with misdemeanour assault after a fight outside his Washington DC hotel in October, he signed himself up for a stay in a luxury Malibu rehabilitation clinic to help overcome his anger problems. However, after just 16 days, he was forced to pull out to continue his community service which stemmed from his 2009 conviction for violence against his girlfriend Rihanna.

And it couldn't have come any sooner
Chris Brown was back in the news earlier this week, getting into trouble with the police for supposedly assaulting a man on the street near where his tour bus was parked. Brown inevitably avoided legal action when he faced a judge in Washington D.C. (where the attack took place), however he might not be so lucky when the latest run in with the law is taken into consideration by the Los Angeles Probation Office.
In what many have seen as an unofficial plea bargain with his probation officers, as soon as Brown arrived back in California following his magistrates court hearing on Monday (28 Oct.) in D.C., Brown immediately visited the patrol board, before he checked himself into a rehabilitation facility in Malibu to control his anger issues. We're not sure at this moment whether this was at the request of law enforcement or whether it was a move by Brown or one of his management team to possibly avoid future jail time.
Brown is still under probation for his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna prior to the Grammys in 2009. Having offended since then and avoided jail time each time, his latest run in with the law may be the final straw. Should Brown be found guilty of breaking the terms of his probation, he faces a potential spell of 4 years behind bars.

Brown was released after just one night spent in jail.
Chris Brown has been released from jail after a man claimed that he had been punched by the R&B singer in Washington D.C. The singer is on five years' probation for attacking his ex-girlfriend, singer Rihanna, in 2009 but spent a night in police custody as a result of his alleged latest violent outburst.
Chris Brown Has Been Released From Jail After A Man Accused Him Of Assault.
Upon his release from police custody, Brown is said to be planning on starting a stint in rehab to work through his anger issues with a professional, according to his representative in a statement reported by BBC Radio 1's Newsbeat. His rep said that rehab would help the singer "continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point" and would help him to "gain focus and insight into his past and recent behaviour."

Following his most recent arrest, Chris Brown has decided to finally address his anger problems and seek professional help
Chris Brown escaped prison once again with his latest run-in with the law this wekend, where he faced assault charges after allegedly punching a man in the face. Escaping with only a misdemeanour charge and no fine, thanks in part to the conflicting stories given by the defendant and accuser, Brown has at least admitted to some fault by deciding to admit himself into a rehab clinic in order to address his anger management issues.
Brown is finally addressing his anger issues
As reported by TMZ, Brown checked himself into a rehab facility in Malibu, presumably to deal with his red hot temper and also in a potential bid to evade any future prison sentence. According to the report, Brown was dropped off at the rehab centre by his manager Mark Geragos, just hours after it emerged that the Los Angeles County Probation Department are planning on launching a full investigation into his assault in Washington D.C. to determine whether it violates his probation. The Grammy-winning R&B singer is still under probation for his 2009 attack on then girlfriend Rihanna.

The rapper was facing potential jail time, but as always he managed to get away with just a slap on the wrist
Chris Brown violated his probation once again this weekend when he allegedly punched a man who disrupted a photo he was posing for with two female fans. The Grammy-winner faced a judge in a Washington D.C. magistrates court early on Monday, 28 October, morning to plead his case and was at one point staring at a felony assault charge. Unsurprisingly, he was let off the hook, not for the first time.
Brown has plenty to laugh about after getting off scott free again
This is the latest legal run-in that Brown has had since he beat Rihanna before the 2009 Grammy Awards, an offence he is still on probation for, and after two violent run-ins and a hit and run incident, Chris is still free to walk the streets like an upstanding citizen. Seriously though, what does he have to do to face jail time? Brown is slowly becoming the new OJ Simpson and its starting to get a little ridiculous.
The trouble-seeking singer was arrested early Sunday morning following an apparently unprovoked attack.
Believe it or not, but Chris Brown is in trouble with the police! Outrageous isn't it! Of course, this really shouldn't come as a shock to anyone given the singer's insistence of seeking out trouble and getting himself involved in it, usually by violent means. This time, Brown allegedly threw a punch at someone outside his hotel in Washington D.C. in what is being claim as an unprovoked attack.
As you may expect, Brown is denying the attack ever happened
As initially reported by TMZ, Brown got into a heated argument around 4.30 am on Sunday, 27 October, outside his hotel - the W Hotel on K Street - and ended up throwing punches at an unnamed man. According to the person who was on the receiving end of Brown's fists, the singer was posing for a photo with two women, when he and his friend, who were hanging out at the hotel, decided to photobomb the picture.

Sadly, there are no prizes for guessing who is was
Chris Brown was arrested for felony assault in Washington D.C. on Sunday, 27 October, morning. The R&B singer, ever-popular with police, was cuffed outside the W Hotel on K Street, where he allegedly threw an unprovoked punch at random guy, hurling homophobia slurs at him whilst engaging in the potentially unwarranted attack.
The singer denies any wrong doing
According to TMZ, who first reported the attack and heard statements form both the victim, law enforcement and Brown's PR team, Brown got into an argument with the guy at around 4.30 am outside his hotel, with the victim never once provoking Brown with violence or even retaliating after the punch was thrown. According to the guy who was hit, Brown was posing for a photo with two women, and he and his friend decided to photobomb the picture, prompting Chris to react violently. He never did seem like the kind of guy who has a sense of humour.

Is this the worst lie ever or are the people of Tappahannock some kind of genetically-modified, prematurely developed sexual fiends?
Chris Brown rarely does himself any favours when he makes a public statement of any kind, but rather than whipping up a load of bad press for himself, this time he has just left us scratching our heads. The singer claims to have lost his virginity at the tender age of 8-years-old, stating in an interview with The Guardian that he and those he knew back in his hometown of Tappahannock, Virginia were much more open to sexual experimentation and at a much (much, much) younger age than anywhere else in America.
The singer rarely makes any comments that go without raising questions
"It's different in the country. By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I'm saying?" He stated in the interview. He continued, "Like, girls, we weren't afraid to talk to them; I wasn't afraid. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it."
Chris Brown discusses losing his virginity, the infamous Rihanna assault and his future aspirations in new interview.

The rapper roosts at the top.

Yet more trouble for Breezy.
Just as Chris Brown’s probation was running out, the term has been extended. The singer is required to serve an additional 1000 hours of community service, added to the original sentence he received in 2009 for assaulting his then girlfriend, Rihanna. The sentence was extended due to procecutors’ accusations that Brown failed to properly report his original 1440 hours of community labor.
Brown's court visits have attracted more attention than his music of late.
In July, Brown’s five-year probation was revoked, after he was called into court on a misdemeanor hit-and-run. While the charges were dropped, this caused the court to reexamine the singer’s probation. On Friday, judge James Brandlin reinstated the probation. Sentencing Brown to the additional 1000 hours or 125 days, which he will be required to serve by Aug. 25, 2014, the L.A. Times reports.

Chris Brown will be working the highways.
If Chris Brown thought he was out of the woods with regards to his legal problems, than he was very, very wrong. On Friday (August 16, 2013), his probation was reinstated and he was given a new sentence to perform 1,000 hours of community labor, reports Billboard.
Brown didn't speak during Friday's hearing, other than to agree to the deal worked out in the judge's chambers while he waited in the courtroom. He was ordered to perform tasks such as highway work and graffiti removal.
Brown has been dealing with a series of legal problems for years. In 2009, he was arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna and was first placed on probation. Since then, there's been various run-ins with the law including charges for assault and traffic accidents.

The relative of the Odd Future singer claims that Brown's bodyguard beat him up during a brawl between the two stars earlier this year.
Looks like another legal headache for Chris Brown is on it's way, as the singer is being sued by the cousin of R&B star Frank Ocean, who claims that the 'Don't Wake Me Up' singer's bodyguard beat him to a pulp during a confrontation between the two stars earlier this year. The attack in question happened in January this year, in which the two singers and their entourages came to blows over a parking spot at a LA recording studio, during which Brown allegedly threw homophobic slurs at Ocean and threatened to shoot him (although it is still unclear who started the brawl).
Brown has yet another legal battle to worry about
Frank's cousin Sha'Keir Duarte has now revisited the unpleasant incident saying that he was severely injured during the brawl, claiming that Brown's hired protection, a man who goes by the name of 'Hood,' pulverised him during the attack. Duarte goes on to state that Hood repeatedly punched and kicked him, continuing his brutal attack even when he fell to the ground. In all, Durate reckons he suffered at least twelve kicks to the body and several to the head whilst he was on the floor, having sustained a number of blows prior to collapsing to the floor.

Chris Brown suffered a seizure due to the constant negativity surrounding his existence.
According to a statement issued later that night, the rapper suffered the seizures partly because of the "nonstop negativity" that he's endured in recent months.
"Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES). ...His doctor tended to him this afternoon and attributes the NES to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity," read the statement.
