G.O.O.D. Music’s Teyana Taylor recently spoke on her longtime friend Chris Brown‘s legal woes in light of him being thrown behind bars with his Washington, DC assault trial.

According to Taylor, Brown is keeping his head up despite these tough times.

“Actually we spoke to him, me, EJ, Karrueche, we spoke to him a couple of weeks ago. He’s doing good, man. He’s in good spirits. It’s his birthday, man, he’s in there on his birthday. But, his whole spirit, like, when he get out, he gonna be good. He’s not in there bitter and harping. It is what it is. He’s becoming a better man.” (“The Breakfast Club”)

Recent reports revealed Brown could have to sit tight until next fall before his case begins.

A Los Angeles County judge denied singer Chris Brown’s request for release from custody Wednesday after his trial on an assault charge in D.C. was delayed for months, News4 Washington’s Mark Segraves reported. Brown’s trial was delayed after his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, decided not to testify out of fear of self-incrimination as he appeals his own conviction. News4 Washington’s Richard Jordan says no specific date has been set for Brown’s trial, but it could begin roughly six months from now. (NBC Washington)

Despite the harsh conditions, fellow singer Ne-Yo recently said Chris Breezy’s mental strength would get him through these tough times.

“The legal system likes to make an example of celebrities,” Ne-Yo said in an on-street interview. “That’s all it is – they’re making an example of him. It’s not right but it is what it is. Chris gon’ be all right. He’s gonna be all right. He’s stronger here [in his head] and here [in his heart] than people know. If I know nothing about Chris, I know that he’s a survivor and he can take care of himself. No matter what, he’s gonna be all right.” (TMZ)

The mega crooner received some celebrity backing during his short-lived court appearance last month.

In court supporting him was his mother Joyce Hawkins, friend and model Karrueche Tran and rapper Bow Wow, who the day before moderated a discussion with First Lady Michelle Obama at Washington’s Howard University. (Raw Story)
