Chris Brown performs

Chris Brown had it all at 19. Fame, fortune, a hot, rich girlfriend. Then he beat up said girlfriend and everything went to hell. An insider tells In Touch, “Chris is scared. Not only did he probably lose his career and his girlfriend, but he’s also fearing for his security and his life.” Many of his fans have already destroyed his CD’s in protest. With the leak of the Rihanna photo, it looks like Chris has become the hunted.

“He faces criminal charges and possible jail time, but he’s going to have to deal with Rihanna’s legion of fans and her close-knit friends in the industry.” And the leak of a police photo on February 19 of a bruised and bloodied Rihanna only made things worse. “That photo was the last straw,” the music insider says. “The threats started pouring in the moment that appeared online.”

I’d be very worried if I was Chris. Who knows what twisted things people are willing to do to him. Rape, murder, brutality, a verbal tongue lashing the likes of which he’s never experienced? Ugh, anything but the tongue lashing. If I had to hear a girl scream at me when she’s not even tied up in my sound proof basement, I’d lose it.
