Embattled singer Chris Brown is reportedly in hiding in a Las Vegas hotel as he fights allegations he attacked his girlfriend Rihanna at the weekend (08Feb09).
The Kiss Kiss hitmaker, 19, was charged with making criminal threats after turning himself into Los Angeles police on Sunday (08Feb09) night. The accusation stems from an early morning fracas which left Rihanna reportedly needing medical attention for head wounds.
Brown has not been seen in public since he was snapped leaving the police station and returning to his West Hollywood hotel - but now he's reportedly flown out to Vegas and holed himself up in Sin City's Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in a bid to avoid the negative press attention, according to E! News.
A source tells the website, "They had to kick out any paparazzi that were around and get him tons of security to sneak him in."
However, a spokesman for Hard Rock is keeping quiet about the R&B star's location, simply stating: "We cannot confirm that Chris is staying with us. However, several of his friends are staying on (the) property."
