Chris Brown deserved a lot of the criticism he received for what he did to Rihanna two years ago, but people are just itching to jump on him for anything.

First there was the twisted "mishap" remark. Now it's a story and photo of the R&B star driving and smoking that caused an uproar in the last few days.

The short version is that celebrity news and photo agency X17 Online implied Brown was smoking a marijuana joint while driving. That would be bad.

Too bad (for the haters) that it wasn't true.

Brown's rep, in no uncertain terms, flatly squashed the site's report and clarified the singer's actions. Soon enough, the photo in question was taken down.

"The report made by X17 Online on March 14, 2011, headlining ‘Is Chris Brown Half-Baked Behind The Wheel?' is false," his rep exclusively told E! News.

"The picture shows Chris Brown with a Davidoff mini natural pack mild cigarillo. The same cigar he held in the photo of his In My Zone mixtape CD cover."

There you go. A legal substance (as was the salvia being smoked in the Miley Cyrus bong video) and another false bit of Chris Brown gossip debunked.

Chris Brown raised eyebrows - shocker there, we know - with a recent interview in which he said he was done apologizing for attacking Rihanna.

While the point was that he can't just keep saying sorry every minute of every day for life, it was the word "mishap" that the media seized upon.

He put himself in this position with his own actions, but this was somewhat unfair to Brown, who was trying to make a broader point about fame.

In the full interview, it's clear that Chris Brown was trying to express the frustrations and pitfalls of fame in the context of his new album F.A.M.E.

The album title stands for Forgiving All My Enemies and also Fans Are My Everything. The "mishap" he was referring to was no specific event.

Of people who turned their backs on him, or on any person after a negative event in their life, Brown actually sympathized, saying the following:

“You can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap.”

People are always gonna talk. But I'm in a positive place. - Chris Brown

In an interview with the New York Post's Page Six Magazine, the star, whose new album F.A.M.E. stands for "Forgiving All My Enemies," says he has come to grips with his own infamy and that now, "I consider myself a grown-ass man."

He's also done apologizing for Rihanna looking like this: "At the end of the day, if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I'm gonna look like a damn fool."

Chris Brown in Page Six

He;s looking to move on from the Rihanna incident and one scandal after another - i.e. this week's Chris Brown nude pic drama - but it's difficult.

In the wake of the shocking assault, Brown says that "a handful of people stuck by me," including fellow musicians Pitbull and Pharrell Williams.

Still, he laments that many "turn[ed] away. They don't want to get involved because they don't want their name attached to anything negative."

"Unknowingly, they kind of show their true colors when they do that."

Their true colors being ... that they don't condone domestic violence?

They both make women scream, but in very different ways.

Now, Chris Brown and Justin Bieber have teamed up on a new single.

The hip hop star/nude photo aficionado and 17-year old icon make for an unusual duo in the minds of many... but do they make for a successful one? You tell us. Listen to the newly-released "Next 2 You" and sound off on the duet: What do you think?

Another week, another odd, unexplained Chris Brown photo leak.

First, it was the photo of a battered Rihanna taken after their 2009 fight. Then a photo of Chris banged up after the same altercation. Now ... wait for it ...

A photo of Chris Brown nude has surfaced online! Woo!

WHAT NOW?!??! A Chris Brown nude photo leak, that's what!

Just when you think Brown can't have more negative press to deal with, he manages to one-up himself. This time, with an intimate cell phone picture of himself.

The Chris Brown nude pic was sent to an ex, reportedly, but there's no confirmation of who that ex is. Rihanna is certainly an option, but again, not confirmed.

Whoever it was sent to (and thus leaked it last week), the singer is standing in a bathroom in front of a mirror, buck a$$ naked. We're talking full frontal nudity.

Last week, a graphic photo of a battered Rihanna leaked.

That image showed, for the first time, the gruesome extent of the damage caused by then-boyfriend Chris Brown the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

Now, a new photo has surfaced that reportedly shows a lip injury Chris suffered the night he beat Rihanna up. The damage is minor, but it's still there.

MediaTakeOut, which broke the story, says the pic was taken after the fight, during which he claimed Rihanna hit him first. Follow the jump to see:

Earlier this week, a judge allowed Chris Brown to once again have contact with former girlfriend Rihanna, tossing the restraining order against him.

With the passage of time, and Brown doing an exemplary job with his probation, one practically forgets that he beat his one-time lady love senseless.

Until today, when MediaTakeOut posted uncensored photos of Rihanna's battered face after the attack - pictures even more graphic than you think.

Follow the jump to see one of the images. Warning: It's upsetting ...

Two years after making contact with her so severely that she lost consciousness and he nearly landed in jail, Chris Brown is free to contact Rihanna again.

A judge just lifted the restraining order prohibiting Brown from going near Rihanna, so long as he does not harass, annoy, or molest his former girlfriend.

Rihanna Wax Figure

Brown appeared in court in L.A., where a judge replaced Rihanna's restraining order with a less-severe Level One order, stipulating the terms above.

THE OLD DAYS: This VMA hotness seems like years ago.

Rihanna was not in court, but her attorney Donald Etra was, telling the judge that his client has no objection to the new order and new arrangement.

It's unclear if the two actually plan on having contact, or if this was just a formality - Brown's complied with probation, so the order should be lifted.

If nothing else, award shows could be a little less awkward now.

Rihanna is cool with Chris Brown being in contact with her again.

Let's be clear in that it's unclear just how much contact they plan on having. But her lawyer says she would like the restraining order against Brown lifted, which would enable him to get close to her again without risking getting thrown in jail.

Whatever the motivation, she's come a long way since 2009.

Thugz Gotta Move On

Brown requested the court drop the restraining order recently.

Rihanna's attorney Donald Etra says she "does not object" to reducing it to a "do not annoy" order, allowing contact as long as Chris doesn't harass/molest her.

Chris initially asked for the reduction, but the court needed to know how Rihanna felt before ruling. The order has not been changed yet, but it could be soon.

Again, this could be as simple as her doing him a favor. The No Contact Order being in place puts him at risk of prosecution. But you have to wonder.

Might they rekindle the romance, or at least friendship, in the future?

Chris Brown caused a bit of a stir late last week with a request to have the restraining order lifted against him. The order bars any contact with Rihanna.

The singer's rep is shooting down speculation that his lawyer made the request for any particular reason - such as a rendezvous with Ri at the Grammys.

Not so, says his camp. It's just the next step in the process of Chris completing the terms of his sentence and moving forward with clearing his name.

Possibly the Hottest Couple Ever

Tammy Brook, a rep for Brown, insists that there was no specific motive, and "the lifting of the restraining order is part of the ongoing legal proceedings."

"The date was scheduled months ago. Chris Brown is thankful for his nominations, but due to scheduling conflicts, [won't] attend the Grammys."

As part of the Rihanna assault case, Brown's attorney asked the judge to reduce the "stay away" order against him to a "do not annoy" order.

While the judge again praised Brown for his progress, the ruling was put off until a later date because Rihanna's attorney couldn't be reached.
