He was on the bubble for awhile (boo), but Wrigley has officially chewed out Chris Brown (boo!) and terminated his endorsement deal following his assault conviction.

Brown had been a spokesman for Doublemint gum and his hit song "Forever" was part of Wrigley's advertising campaign. But now they officially spit him out (BOOO!).

Chris Brown was set to be sentenced after formally pleading guilty to felony assault last month, but that has now been delayed until August 27 at 2 p.m.

As we reported in late June, Brown accepted a plea deal in which he entered a plea of guilty to a brutal February assault that left Rihanna badly beaten.

Amid repeated reports that she and Chris Brown are sneaking around together, Rihanna says there is no need to keep her ex half a football field away.

Brown, who will be sentenced today after pleading guilty to assauling the "Umbrella" singer in February, is under court order not to communicate with her at all.
