R&B singer Chris Brown is making headlines this weekend as reports claim he has become the victim of identity theft.
According to reports, Breezy’s theft allegedly stems from when he left his jail ID at San Bernardino County Jail last year following a rehab stint in California.
Fast forward to this week … when someone tried to sell the ID online for $10,000. Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, got wind of it and went to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Dept. and said “What the F***?” The Sheriff’s Dept. launched an investigation and traced the ID to someone in the area. We’ve learned cops seized the ID and grilled the guy, who insists he got the ID from a friend who got it from a friend. (TMZ)

Brown recently appeared in court and had his probation revoked for traveling outside of the Los Angeles area.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said Brown can remain free at least until a March 20 hearing when the judge will receive an update from probation officials. Brown was ordered by those officials in December not to leave Los Angeles County without permission. However, the Grammy-winning singer performed at a nightclub in San Jose on Jan. 11 without obtaining permission to travel. (AP)
Breezy’s recent appearance during a club shooting also sparked concern.
Brown was also supposed to complete 1,000 hours of community labor by the end of January, but he is still 200 hours short. Additionally, the probation report expressed concern over Sunday’s shooting at a San Jose club. Brown was on stage when five people were injured. (Rap-Up)
