With Chris Brown and Rihanna back together, will the singer be charged with beating and/or threatening to kill her - which he was arrested for February 8?
The case will be turned over to the Los Angeles County D.A. next week, and a decision will be made soon after on whether to file criminal charges against Brown.
The two likely charges - making criminal threats and domestic violence.
As for the most serious possible criminal threats charge, we think it's now less likely the D.A. will file because of Rihanna's sudden change of heart.
First of all, the main reason Chris Brown was arrested for this is because he allegedly told Rihanna something to the effect of, "I'm going to kill you."
This is obviously a terrible thing to say, but lots of people say it in the heat of the moment, so it's not the easiest thing to charge someone with.
Compounding the issue is that Rihanna may very well testify that she never believed he meant this threat, and the case looks thin to say the least.
Chris Brown chats with some jet skiing chicks in Miami over the weekend. No word on what was said, or whether he beat the pair senseless afterward.
The domestic violence charge is another matter entirely.
When a jury sees the pictures of a clearly battered Rihanna, it's probably more powerful than any testimony she'd give. Even if she were to take the stand and say she started the fight or somehow deserved it, it would be a tough sell.
Given the picture, it's going to be tough not to prosecute Brown.
Amazingly, more than half the D.A.'s domestic violence cases involve women who have recanted their stories or gotten back together with the alleged abuser.
Crazy. The impending decision clearly isn't weighing on Brown's conscience, as he spent the weekend jet skiing at Diddy's pad and being a tool in Miami.
