As bad as the last week has been, Chris Brown hasn't seen the half of it.

The R&B star is being investigated for a variety of felonies, including domestic violence, assault resulting in great bodily injury and - based on specific allegations made by Rihanna - even attempted murder, an E! Online source says.

But as they build their case, the source says, prosecutors fear that making any serious felony charges against him stick could prove difficult in a case in which there are no direct witnesses other than Chris Brown and Rihanna herself.

He's accused of beating his longtime girlfriend in the early morning of February 8, causing them both to cancel scheduled Grammy performances that night.

Rihanna told cops that, as the two fought in his rented Lamborghini, Brown said to his girlfriend, "I'm going to kill you," in addition to choking and beating her.

The Barbados-born songstress, who is reportedly cooperating with the investigation, also told authorities that Brown choked her until she lost consciousness.

Brown was booked by police on suspicion of making criminal threats, but the D.A. wanted further investigation into the attack before formally pressing charges.

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse is looking for a house on the island she has been on since late last year as she battles heroin and crack cocaine addiction.

She was seen hunting for homes with her dad Mitch - who rushed to the island after Amy's hospitalization last weekend - looking for a little place in the sun.

The estranged wife of Blake Fielder-Civil plans to split her time between the island and another new home in the leafy suburb of Hadley Wood, North London.

Amy Winehouse in St. Lucia: Rest and relaxation personified.

A Wino pal revealed: "Mitch and Amy have been looking at property while he has been in St. Lucia. They saw a few potential places this weekend."

"Amy loves it in the Caribbean and being away from it all has helped her hugely in her fight against drugs... She has been drinking and smoking cannabis but is still a million times better than she was in Camden."

Her family think the best way to keep her out of trouble is to have a house in the suburbs and a place in the Caribbean where she can totally get away.

And why shouldn't she move there? Think of all the fun she's had on her St. Lucia vacation. Click to enlarge some of the many memorable moments ...

Attractive Heroes co-stars and real-life couple Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia announced their split this week, citing a "lifestyle conflict."

Whatever the hell that means.

It could apply to anything, but get this: according to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Halo split was caused by a pregnancy scare a few months ago.

The test was negative and Hayden was spared from joining Bristol Palin and Jamie Lynn Spears atop the list of America's hottest, famous unwed teen moms.

The whole incident apparently caused a great deal friction, and that ultimately sparked the couple's recent breakup, however. No official word on whether the Panettiere love child that wasn't belonged to Milo or Jesse McCartney.

Either way, Halo had a good run.

Embattled NFL star Michael Vick, who is already serving time on federal dogfighting charges, has been sacked again - this time by a $63,000,000,000 lawsuit.

The skinny: A South Carolina inmate who alleges the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback stole his pit bulls and sold them on eBay to buy missiles from Iran.

Jonathan Lee Riches filed the handwritten complaint over "theft and abuse of my animals" on July 23 in the U.S. District Court in Richmond, Virginia.

Riches alleges that Vick stole two white mixed pit bull dogs from his home in Holiday, Fla., and used them for dogfighting operations in Richmond.

The complaint alleges that Michael Vick sold the dogs in question on eBay and “used the proceeds to purchase missiles from the Iran government.”

Michael Vick is dogged everywhere these days. Including hilariously doctored photos.

The lawsuit goes on to allege that the disgraced athlete would need those missiles because he pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda in February of this year.

Michael Vick has to stop physically hurting my feelings and dashing my hopes,” Riches writes in the hilarious and insane, but heartfelt complaint.

Riches wants his $63 billion "backed by gold and silver" and delivered to the front gates to the Williamsburg Federal Correctional facility in South Carolina, where he resides as an inmate, serving out a wire fraud conviction.

Good thing they requested their $63 billion settlement be backed by gold and silver. Securities and bonds are just too risky in this economic climate.

In the aftermath of the alleged beating at the hands of Chris Brown that left her badly injured, Rihanna's family is reeling, having never seen it coming.

Several family members have spoken out from her native country of Barbados, where the singer traveled after the violet incident two Sundays ago.

Brown "flew so far under everyone's radar that we just didn't think he was that [abusive] type," a relative tells People magazine in its new cover story.

Chris was arrested February 8 for allegedly assaulting Rihanna in Los Angeles.

He was booked on suspicion of criminal threats, having (according to her) told Rihanna he would kill her in addition to leaving her bruised and unconscious.

He has not been seen since, but issued an apology through a spokesman, saying he sought therapy. Rihanna was said to be unmoved by the vague statement.

What Have I Done?!

Brown will likely face charges from the L.A. District Attorney. The question is what kind - criminal threats carry a longer sentence, but are more difficult to prove, so some believe a felony assault / battery charge is much more likely.

The turn of events comes as a shock to Rihanna's family. "[Chris] was always looking after her needs," says another relative, "making sure she was happy."

Rihanna, who turns 21 on Friday, and Brown, 19, were a "perfect match," an MTV veejay who knows both music stars said. Now their future together is unknown.

But as far as her father, Ronald Fenty, is concerned, his daughter should "move on." A relative agrees: "I don't want her to go back to him. I don't think anyone does."

Like most celebrity gossip sites, we occasionally love to make fun of movie star Tom Cruise. That crazy dude just makes himself an easy target sometimes.

Yet for all his quirks, this is how you see him more often than not - doing the things every doting parent does (or would, if they had hundreds of millions).

Last weekend he took son Connor Cruise to the Daytona 500. Still in Florida, he and Katie Holmes moved on to Disney World, where little Suri had a ball ...

The family visited the Magic Kingdom, where Suri Cruise met Mickey and Minnie Mouse, along with some other Disney characters, and dressed in tandem!

Two days after Suge Knight got his ass kicked in a hotel brawl, the former music mogul pled guilty to a completely different beatdown ... the one in which he allegedly chased (with his car), punched and kicked his girlfriend in the head.

As part of a deal in Las Vegas Justice Court, Suge pled guity to misdemeanor domestic battery in the assault on his girlfriend, for which he was arrested last year.

At the same time, however, Marion had two felony drug possession charges and one felony coercion charge stemming from the same arrest dismissed. Why?

Sources say the felony charges were dropped because cops can't find Melissa - who was the prosecution's main witness - according to the Las Vegas Sun.

Shady, to say the least. Suge was fined a whopping $340, has to complete 48 hours of community service and has to attend domestic violence counseling.

Suge Knight may have gotten his face bashed in twice in a nine-month span, but he's still bad ass enough to make his girlfriend mysteriously not show up in court.

With the campaign spotlight long gone, Bristol Palin may be less inclined to marry teenage baby daddy Levi Johnston than she espoused a few months ago.

John McCain is taking a similar approach to visiting The View.

The former presidential candidate's appearance on the talk show in September was one of the more interesting moments from the 2008 election season.

Throughout the interview, the GOP hopeful was on the hot seat, getting grilled on (among other things) why he chose Sarah Palin as his running mate.

During the broadcast, McCain actually held it together and seemed to be in good spirits. But was that an act? And is the Arizona senator holding a grudge?

According to reports, Barbara Walters recently saw McCain at a Washington event.

During the encounter, Walters expressed hope that the vanquished candidate would return to her TV show. Quoth the snapping senator: "Not anytime soon."

Such an obvious diss should give the ladies something to gab about - and Elisabeth Hasselbeck to get fired up defending him - for at last a few months.

Poor McCain. Either he's mad at talk show hosts or they're mad at him. Remember his epic feud with Letterman? Guess that's part of being a maverick.

As we talked about last week, The Bachelor finale will air Monday, March 2 from 8-10 p.m., followed by the standard “After the Final Rose” special from 10-11.

Then, as Bachelor host-pimp Chris Harrison said on Monday night's episode, there will be a second "After the Final Rose: Part 2" special on Tuesday, March 3.

Why a second special in an "intimate" setting after a "shocking" finale?

The Bachelor spoilers below may shock you. They may appall you. They may thrill you. In any case, people will be talking about this potentially epic conspiracy theory.

If you do not wish to read The Bachelor season finale spoilers, turn back now.

A dude who calls himself Reality Steve, and says he has inside information on good authority, claims the following events happen as The Bachelor season concludes:

Rugged Jason Mesnick
  • The promo that supposedly shows Jason Mesnick proposing to Melissa Rycroft - "given away" by her pinky ring and freckles - was real (and released on purpose). Jason chose Melissa in New Zealand. No editing. 
  • However, right now, Jason and Melissa are not together. Moreover ...
  • At some point between the proposal in New Zealand and the taping of the first "After the Final Rose" special, Jason began secretly dating Molly Malaney.
  • The first "After the Final Rose" special was filmed on January 18, rather than the week before the finale airs, as is the show's custom. In that hour, Jason ends his engagement with Melissa, and announces his relationship with Molly. 
  • The reason the second "After the Final Rose" special was added is to tell us Jason and Molly's story. Whether there is a marriage proposal involved is still anyone's guess, but the special will update us on their relationship.

All we can say is: O.M.G. Now that would be something.

Follow the jump for a nearly half-hour breakdown of this Bachelor insider's theory, as well as some of the major unanswered questions that remain if this Bachelor spoiler / conspiracy theory is truly to be believed ...
