Chris Brown sidestepped a new effort to put him in jail yesterday when a judge rejected prosecutors' efforts to put him behind bars for a probation violation.

Judge James Brandlin said Brown appeared to be making progress in his anger management program and should remain there for the foreseeable future.

Chris Brown checked into rehab after he was arrested October 27 in Washington D.C. for allegedly punching a man in a dispute over a fan photo.

He got kicked out after throwing a rock at his mom's car, but was ordered by the court to finish a 90-day program while the assault case is pending.

Prosecutors said Monday that additional witness statements obtained last month offer "sufficient evidence" to move forward with a full-blown mini-trial.

That hearing, decided by a judge instead of a jury, could result in revocation of the singer's felony probation sentence for his 2009 beating of Rihanna.

Chris Brown appeared today inside a D.C. courtroom and - good news! - he didn't punch anyone inside.

But in even more surprising news, the singer did reject a plea bargain in conjunction with assault charges he faces after an October confrontation.

According to TMZ sources, the prosecutor told a judge that he had offered Brown a deal that would have reduced the charge to simple assault… but the artist's attorney turned it down.

It's unknown why at this time, but it is believed that Brown's lawyer has not yet been given surveillance footage from the night in question.

Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown have set the selfie bar very high for 2014. It's going to be hard to top this effort ... in terms of public nausea induced.

To sum up the image in question, which really speaks for itself: Chris Brown is sticking his tongue out, and Karrueche Tran is sucking on that thing.

Magical.

Looks like Tran's big plan to spend New Year's with Chris in rehab came to fruition, and the couple made the best of his less than ideal surroundings.

Give her credit for standing by her man through thick and thin ... but come on Karrueche Tran. Just ...  who sucks on another human's tongue?!

Putting aside the more obvious questions of who takes a photo of this and who shares said photo on the Internet ... who does this to someone, period?

We suppose the most positive spin we can put on the gnarliest selfie of 2014 so far (and very possibly for the whole year) is that Chris seems happy.

If he becomes the kind of dude who posts disgusting PDA pics with his girlfriend online instead of raging against girls and guys alike? A net positive.

Happy New year!

Chris Brown won't be going out partying on New Year's Eve. Just ringing in 2014 with a low key, romantic night at his rehab center ... with Karrueche Tran!

Karrueche, 25, is hoping that something miraculous happens so that Chris, 24, can get a pass to leave the center for one day and properly mark the occasion.

Either way, they'll spend the evening together, however.

“Unless a miracle happens and he can get away, she’ll be there with him,” a source close to the couple said of his efforts to be excused on Tuesday.

If Chris is unable to be excused for one day, Karrueche Tran will throw him a party in rehab, similar to how she helped the singer celebrate Christmas.

According to reports, the model brought Chris, who is in rehab for anger management, “a bowl of gumbo, a few slices of pumpkin pie, and a six pack of 7-Up.”

Chris Brown's probation has been revoked, following a progress hearing in the Rihanna assault case, but the singer was not remanded into custody.

The decision stems from the R&B singer's arrest for felony assault and subsequent misdemeanor assault charge following an altercation in D.C.

Brown is scheduled to appear in court in connection with the case on January 8, but because he's on probation, that opens up a new list of issues.

On Monday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin noted that Brown's criminal complaint violated the terms of his probation.

However, Brandlin did not order the singer to return to jail, saying he was pleased with the troubled singer's progress in anger management rehab.

It's the second time this year that the 24-year-old has had his probation revoked, and he's scheduled to return February 10 for another hearing.

Deez hoes ain't loyal. So sayeth Chris Brown on his new track, featuring Lil Wayne and French Montana, and the message of the R&B track is clear.

The single opens with Weezy rapping about his lack of trust in female companions. Chris Brown joins in, commenting on their gold-digging tendencies.

"Loyal" is expected to be featured on the controversial singer's upcoming album, X. Due out in 2014, the record may be Brown's last, or so he claims.

He took to Twitter this year to tease his exit from music: "Don't worry mainstream America. After this X album, it'll probably be my last album," he wrote.

"Being famous is amazing when it's for [your] music and talent," he went on. "I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!"

Okay. Well, either way, take a listen to Chris Brown's latest "music" below ...

R. Kelly recently likened Chris Brown to MLK and even Jesus Christ Himself.

Kid Ink is not going that far. Not by a long shot. But he does have his back.

The artist, who has a hit track in "Show Me" featuring Brown, says Chris just wants to be seen as regular again. A modest goal for most. Lofty for him.

This is, after all, a man who has beaten the crap out of Rihanna, and failed to improve his image in the court of public opinion in almost five years.

Incident after incident of rage and misbehavior haven't helped, but he knows it, and Kid Ink gave fans an update on how the troubled star is doing in rehab.

Follow the jump to see Ink's interview about his collaborator Breezy ...

Chris Brown is responsible for more than $3 million dollars in pain and suffering endured by Frank Ocean's cousin, the latter says in a new lawsuit.

According to legal documents filed as a result of the massive brawl outside an L.A. recording studio earlier this year, Chris is a goon who needs to PAY.

Chris Brown in Court Picture

Sha'Keir Duarte claims Chris and his fellow thugs put a hurting on him in the fight between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean and their posses in January.

Duarte claims that Brown's bodyguard specifically brutalized him, and in his court filing, he even itemizes his list of damages, complete with amounts:

  • $1,000,000 for pain, suffering and inconvenience
  • $1,000,000 for emotional distress
  • $1,000,000 for punitive damages
  • $60,000 for medical expenses

Sounds a bit high ... but that's for the courts to decide.

Brown, for his part, has already filed counter lawsuit against Duarte, accusing him of provoking the fight and attacking him with kicks and punches.

Ocean, for his part, declined to pursue the matter.

Happy Thanksgiving, THGers, from our entire family to yours.

What would this uniquely American holiday be without family, food, football and appreciation for the things that matter most and what we've been given.

In THG's case, that means turkeys ... in more ways than one.

On this 28th of November, we're paying tribute to celebs we had the honor and the burden of covering in 2013. We're talking fowl individuals. Bird brains.

You get the idea. Here are our Top 10 Turkeys of 2013 ...

Spencer Pratt is a Turkey

Who will win THG's 7th Annual Spencer Pratt Thanksgiving Turkey Award!?

10 (tie). Donald Trump. It's not a matter of whether he'll make the list. Just where he falls on it. After a relatively quiet 2013, the Donald takes the #10 spot.

10 (tie). The X Factor. So much hype. Such a mediocre show.

9. Teresa Giudice. Mortgage fraud was so 2005. Who gets in trouble for that anymore? Reality stars who live beyond their means? Okay, makes sense.
