We'd wish Chris Brown a happy 20th birthday on this 5th of May, but we're not sure he's deserving. Hopefully the music star lays low today and reflects on the serious crimes he is charged with after "allegedly" beating Rihanna to a pulp.
So enjoy your birthday, Chris, if only because it may be your last one in some time that isn't spent behind bars. That's enough to make you go ...
Brown has pleaded not guilty to assault and criminal threats charges stemming from the February 8 attack on his then girlfriend. If convicted, he faces nearly five years in prison, though he is trying to hammer out a plea deal.
If Brown and the prosecution are unable to reach a mutually acceptable plea bargain, his attorney will have no choice proceed with the defense - likely to center around the leaked Rihanna pic that surfaced after the incident.
Will he beat the rap? Will he learn from his ways? Will he fly into another blinding rage over rumors that Rihanna is now back with her ex, Negus Sealy?
Only time will tell. For now, we'll just mark Chris Brown's 20th birthday with a little photo gallery of the embattled star. Click to enlarge:
