Thursday, Mar 20, 2014 11:45AM
R&B singer Chris Brown may be catching a huge break in the very near future as reports claim the right dollar amount could have him released from jail as soon as today (March 20).
According to reports, Chris Breezy's legal team has offered compensation to make the case fade to black and ultimately free the singer.
Sources connected with the D.C. assault case tell TMZ ... Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, has contacted the lawyer for the man who claims Chris assaulted him in D.C., breaking his nose, and offered him a BIG FAT CHECK. We're told Geragos is gunning for a civil settlement ... which could very well mean the broken nose guy would tell prosecutors he no longer has an interest in pursuing the criminal case. And our sources say prosecutors are aware of the civil settlement negotiations. (TMZ)
Although emotional, Brown's mother Joyce Hawkins admitted she had faith he would keep his head up while behind bars this week.
RumorFix spoke to Joyce exclusively after the hearing. While she was in tears, Joyce said "he's going to be fine" when we asked if she thought her son would be OK in jail. Chris acknowledged his mother's support by saying "I love you" as he was led out of court. (RumorFix)
Chris Breezy appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom and learned his fate Monday (March 17).
Chris Brown must stay in jail for at least a month after he was arrested for violating probation. A California judge set no bail at a court hearing today and ordered the singer to stay behind bars. As his mother sobbed, Brown, 24, who appeared in court wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, was taken away in handcuffs. (ABC News)
After being denied entry into another rehab center, Brown found out he would stay put in jail until mid-April.
Brown's next chance to get out of jail comes on April 23 when Brandlin considers if his arrest on a misdemeanor assault charge in Washington justifies keeping him locked up. There is a possibility the judge will speed up that decision so Brown can travel to D.C. for a trial on that charge. (CNN)
