Chris Brown's scheduled court appearance might be off, according to reports.

The R&B singer's initial arraignment date was set for March 5 following his arrest earlier this month for his allegedly severe beating of Rihanna.

But his court appearance "may not happen,” and may be pushed back, Los Angeles district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison tells E! News.

“We don’t have the evidence yet. [Los Angeles police detectives] are still investigating,” says Robison. “If [detectives] determine that they require more time, then they’ll set a new date for [Brown] to return to court.”

Once the LAPD finishes its investigation, prosecutors must decide whether to file felony charges, reject the charges if evidence is insufficient, or refer the case to the city attorney’s office if they decide the behavior was simply a misdemeanor.

Depending on the decision, Chris Brown may not even have to appear.

“He only has to come back if and when we file charges,” says Robison.

On Wednesday, an LAPD source also told E! News, “The D.A. is being even more thorough than usual with this case. They don’t want to mess it up.”

Prosecutors have ordered the LAPD to seek evidence for a variety of felony offenses, including domestic violence, assault resulting in great bodily injury and - based on specific allegations made by Rihanna - even attempted murder.

But making any serious felony charges stick could prove difficult in a case where there are no direct witnesses other than Rihanna and Chris Brown.

While he has yet to face formal charges, Chris Brown, who is free on bail, is taking anger management classes in a preemptive move to repair his image.

Should he be charged and convicted, such a course would almost be a certain part of his sentence. The enrollment is said to have been masterminded by PR / crisis manager Michael Sitrick, whom Brown hired in the wake of his arrest.

While Alex Rodriguez bashes meaningless Spring Training homers, Jesus Luz continues to circle the bases with the lovely object of both their affections.

Worse yet for A-Rod, Luz is making an impression with her kids.

While the nurturing of their romance through Kabbalah (and a steamy W mag photo shoot) is generating plenty of celeb gossip heat, there may be another dynamic worth noticing in the affair of hot Brazilian model Jesus Luz and Madonna.

E! Online reports that the pop queen took her 22-year-old paramour to Los Angeles' Kabbalah Center on trendy Robertson Boulevard last Saturday.

While the former Mrs. Ritchie may be making an impression on Jesus Luz, it was Luz taking the time to get to know Madonna's eight-year-old son, Rocco.

"He was playing with Rocco than paying attention to Madonna," a source says, noting that Luz was also seen with Madonna and adopted David Banda.

Daughter Lourdes would be the last in the trifecta of children to impress as he strives to win family favor. Still, her PR peeps deny any romance with Jesus Luz.

"Clichéd as it sounds, they're really just friends," Madge's rep Liz Rosenberg said.

Of course, Rosenberg also vehemently denied Madonna and Guy Ritchie's marriage was in trouble until they divorced. Madonna and A-Rod were allegedly just pals too, until they were clearly getting it on. So basically she's full of it.

Is Madge just using Jesus Luz to make Alex Rodriguez jealous - after he ran home to ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez in the wake of his positive steroid test - or did A-Rod blow his shot? Did he snooze and Luz out to a younger, hotter boy toy?

From all accounts, and pictures of them at the park, Jessica Alba is a great mother to daughter Honor Marie.

However, we can't help but call out the beautiful actress on her recent choice to dress her poor child up in this flowered headband.

As you can tell from the photo below, Honor is looking off to the distance, hoping father Cash Warren comes by and removes the ridiculous accessory from her noggin:

What do you think of Honor's headband?

Wow. Sam Lutfi may be even shadier than thought, and that's saying a lot, considering that's pretty much the only calling card of this bad seed.

Britney Spears's hairstylist testified in a Los Angeles courtroom Wednesday that Lutfi - the singer's shady, evil, manipulative former manager - was harassing her with calls and text messages over a period of three weeks in December.

"Someone kept calling me from a private number ... he said his name was Sam," Roberta Romero stated Wednesday. "He wanted information about Britney Spears. He said he was on her side. I told him, 'Leave me alone, stop calling me.'"

Lutfi allegedly sent Romero a series of 11 texts within a four day period, saying things like, "Please relay the truth to her. I did not do this to her," apparently referring to her father Jamie Spears' indefinite control over the singer.

This file photo shows what was a hauntingly familiar scene in 2007.

Sam Lutfi also allegedly sent the following text to Romero: "I've done everything I can to free her from this. Very close to getting her free now."

On another occasion he allegedly wrote: "I went to court to free her."

Romero says she repeatedly told Lutfi to leave her alone via text.

Katrina Darrell is not part of the semifinal round of American Idol.

Still, the former season eight contestant - who clashed with Kara DioGuardi over her lack of singing talent and lack of clothing - is staying in the news.

Return of Bikini Girl

Darrell (aka "Bikini Girl") is receiving offers as high as $10,000 for basic club appearances, according to TMZ. There is one string (bikini) attached, of course:

She has to show up in a bathing suit.

The second round of semifinal auditions on American Idol was almost as much of a waste of two hours as this week's ridiculous special, The Bachelor: The Women Tell All.

Only two performances remotely stood out:

  • Adam Lambert closed the show with a rendition of The Rolling Stones' classic "Satisfaction." The judges were blown away, amazed that the singer could display such a range. We'd be shocked if he weren't voted through to the finals.

Watch his audition below:

  • After giving possibly the most awkward, boring pre-audition interview of all-time, Allison Iraheta took to the stage and rocked out to "Alone" by Heart. “You don’t even know how good you are,” Kara said.

Watch the performance and decide for yourself:

Despite no other contestant really performing well, one more man or woman will be included in the final 12 from this group.

It will likely come down to Matt Giraud, Megan Joy Corkery or Kris Allen. What do you think?

Troubled R&B singer Chris Brown, who was arrested two weeks ago on suspicion of making criminal threats against girlfriend Rihanna, has started attending anger management classes in Glendale, Calif., on Monday, according to reports.

According to a source, Brown opted to seek anger management counseling at the behest of his public relations spin doctor, Michael Sitrick.

"Chris doesn't actually have to go by law," a New York Daily News insider says, "but he believes it will make him look better to the public, and he wants to try to get in a few classes before March 5," when he is due back in court.

The February 7 incident - in which Brown hit, choked and threatened Rihanna, leaving her with cuts and bruises to her forehead, lips and cheeks - didn't just leave Rihanna looking like this. It severely tarnished Brown's good-guy image.

Old School Rihanna and Chris Brown

But insiders believe he's not the only one with anger issues: "Rihanna is temperamental, too," says a snitch. "They're both too hot-headed for their own good."

Adds another source, in reference to a detail in the police report: "It didn't help that Rihanna grabbed the keys out of his rented Lamborghini and threw them down the street. She knew it would really infuriate Chris, and it worked."

The hottest couple in music is likely finished romantically after this, but when will their paths cross again physically? How about at Brown's trial.

"She'll be there - she has to testify," confirms a source close to the case, who does not foresee any jail time for Brown, regardless of Rihanna's level of cooperation. "If Chris is convicted, it would be his first offense. He won't go to prison."

For Criss Angel and Holly Madison, the magic is over.

Following four months of dating and even rumors of an engagement, this couple has pulled the final rabbit out of its hat. The former Playboy Bunny and freaky magician are no longer an item.

"She was very much in love with him, and they're still very close friends," a source told E! News. "It was a conflict of schedules. She felt she couldn't devote 100 percent of her time in Vegas and his career at the expense of her career and her goals."

Madison will "come back to L.A. and pursue her career," the insider added, while we assume Angel will return to somehow bedding stars such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears.

Kellie Pickler was a crowd and judge favorite on season five of American Idol. She even received consistent praise from Simon Cowell.

We wonder what the cantankerous British critic would say about Pickler's latest look, however.

The country-singing cutie has abandoned her adorable, bubbly look for something more Lisa Rinna-like. Take a look for yourself:

Has Kellie Pickler undergone plastic surgery?

Less than 24 hours after a warrant for his arrest was issued, Adnan Ghalib has turned himself. Charged with three felonies, he went to court and pled not guilty.

Ghalib allegedly struck a process server - who was attempting to hand him a subpoena to appear in the Britney Spears restraining order case - with his Mercedes.

The L.A. County D.A. has charged Ghalib with felony assault with a deadly weapon, felony battery and felony hit and run. He is free after posting $110,000 bail.

Lawyers for Britney Spears went to L.A. Superior Court January 20 to get temporary restraining orders against Ghalib and her former manager, Sam Lutfi.

Jamie Spears, who serves as his daughter's conservator, says Lutfi and Ghalib were sending threatening text messages and trying to take control of Britney.

There was also a prepaid phone one of the two is said to have given her. Papa Jamie went ballistic when he overheard Britney communicating with Adnan.

Earlier this month, the LAPD confirmed that a report was filed on Ghalib alleging he committed assault with a deadly weapon - his Mercedes - February 11.
