We Prayed, but Still More Charges Pile up for Chris Brown

20140215-194539.jpg

Good Lawd! Too many people got it in for Chris Breezy!

Seems like most people wish Chris Brown the best with his stint in rehab, and hope the R&B mega star will be rehabilitated without having to serve prison time.

But as more and more charges pile up for the singer, we wonder… Will it really take prison time for Chris to realize the consequences of his anger? Or maybe it’s not so much Chris, but his security team, which always has his back, whether he (and/or) they are in the wrong.

The incident below marks the third case for Breezy:

A man is suing Brown for being assaulted during a pick up basketball game at an L.A. Gym.

Michael Ausbon filed a lawsuit on Feb. 13, claiming Browns entourage assaulted him and the star (currently summoned to anger management at a rehab facility) participated in the altercation.

The lawsuit says that Ausbon fouled Brown, and Brown threatened to “put these hands on you.”

Soon after the threat, Browns entourage approached and threatened Ausbon, them retreated and proceeded to assault while the game continued.

Ausbon was rushed to the hospital for injuries to his head, face, neck, legs and ribs.

Not at all good for Brown, who already has two upcoming court dates.

Not sure when the incident happened, but stay logged on to J! for updates.

What’s all This Rodman/Korea Hoopla? PLUS Watch Footage of the Game

This is mainly for all the ladies who had been wondering what this Dennis Rodman hoopla is all about. I’m  a basketball fan and even a Rodman fan, but I’m not that politically inclined, soooo when I saw the NBA star going off (once again) with some guy on CNN, I had to find out what was really going on.

Dennis Rodman was in North Korea with other former NBA players for a basketball game against the North Korean Senior National Team on the birthday of the country’s leader, the infamous Kim Jong Un.

The American team consisted of OG players Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson, Vin Baker, Craig Hodges, Doug Christie, and Charles D. Smith.

Kim Jong Un, an actual friend of Rodman’s,  imprisoned Kenneth Bae, a Korean-American Christian missionary who was  sentenced to 15 years hard labor.

Rodman, the controversial former NBA star  elicited widespread condemnation Tuesday when he suggested in an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN’s “New Day” that  Bae had done something to deserve his 15-year sentence.

After Rodman apologized for his comments regarding  Bae and for flipping out on Cuomo, he then said it was not his job to address concerns about the repressive state of Korea or  lobby for the release of the detained U.S. citizen.

What was shocking, even for supporters of the American team to watch, was Rodman (on Wednesday) leading a singalong of “Happy Birthday” to the leader of North Korea, a man he calls a friend and a “very good guy,” but considered by many a brutal dictator who recently ordered the execution of his own uncle.

That same day, Bae’s family accused Rodman of “playing games” with Bae’s life. Relatives and U.S. officials have insisted Bae committed no crime.

In the end, North Korea won the game.

Fellow player Charles D. Smith later admitted that he felt the game may have been a mistake due to the Bae situation, but said he would continue to stand strong with his decision to play the game.
