Chris Brown wants to creep a little “closer” to his ex girlfriend Rihanna….well sort of.

The R&B singer appeared in an L.A. courtroom yesterday (Fri. Jan 28) for a probationary progress report hearing in the Rihanna domestic violence case.

Gucci Mane Ordered To Spend 30 Days In Rehab

4 Jan

Gucci Mane is about to follow in the footsteps of T.I…

His next court date is at the end of the month. Why are so many rappers hopping on the merry-go-round of court dates and jail? Let’s hope Gucci, T.I. and DMX can somehow get their lives back on track, and not for their fans or rap music, but more importantly for themselves and their families.
