The assault charge against Chris Brown, filed after his arrest early Sunday morning, has just been reduced from a felony offense to a misdemeanor.

Chris has been released from jail, where he had been for about 36 hours, with no bail. He is required to stay 100 yards away from the alleged victim.

Brown will not be required to take a drug test, as often stipulated in such cases. His bodyguard’s charge was also reduced to a misdemeanor.

The controversial 24-year-old was arrested for felony assault in Washington D.C. after allegedly attacking a man outside a hotel and breaking his nose.

Brown had been in custody since, though it’s unclear who threw the first punch, and the reduced charge certainly indicates some of that uncertainty.

Law enforcement sources have indicated that the fight started when the man and his friend photobombed Chris, who was posing for a picture with two girls.

The victim says the same in his official statement, claiming he was trying to get a picture with Chris when Brown allegedly said, “I ain’t down wit that gay s–t.”

The victim says he responded by saying to Chris, “Why you hoing?”

Chris then said, “I feel like boxing” and hit him in the face. Then, he says, he went to square off with Chris when the bodyguard also hit him in the face.

According to the victim, who suffered a broken nose, after the bodyguard punched him, the R&B star got behind the bodyguard, screaming, “Yeah, walk away.”

Sources close to Chris insist it wasn’t over a photo, though, and that the guy tried to get on Chris’ tour bus, and Chris was just trying to stop a trespass.

In his witness statement, Chris DENIES punching the victim and says he was on the bus when the victim tried getting on and his bodyguard “handled it.”

Brown, who recently broke up with Karrueche Tran, faces certain jail time if found to be in violation of his probation for beating Rihanna back in 2009.

He could theoretically have his probation revoked without a conviction, but the more likely scenario is that probation officials will see how this plays out.

Amid a never-ending firestorm of controversy, Chris Brown was spotted leaving Tru Nightclub in Hollywood last night with girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

They look happy. Guess there’s no trouble in paradise … at least not yet.

Karrueche and Rihanna, Chris’ ex-girlfriend and recent collaborator, are said to be engaged in a war of words, Facebook messages and Tweets.

In case there’s any doubt where his heart is (at least last night):

Karrueche reportedly said earlier this week on Facebook, in what was seen as a jab at Rihanna, “I’m Angelina, you’re Jennifer. C’mon you see where Brad at.”

It’s starting to look like the aspiring model is right … and may be morphing into Rihanna, with her newly blonde hair and sharpened fake nails. Just saying.

There’s also this random Rihanna topless pic Tweeted yesterday. Which has nothing to do with this story, in all honesty, but still felt worth noting.

Rumors have been flying that Chris Brown and Rihanna are getting back together, however, dude is still dating Karrueche Tran, and it’s apparently going well.

Sources close to Karrueche say that she is not perturbed by the rumors about Rihanna, because she is currently dating – and living with (!) Chris Brown.

Guess she would know better than a bunch of tabloids …

Furthermore, after Brown made his not-so-secret appearance at Rihanna’s birthday party, he whisked Karrueche off to Miami for a romantic Valentine’s Day. Aww.

So all is well in paradise? Looks like it. Probably. Maybe.

A source tells Us Weekly that Karrueche knows that Chris Brown and Rihanna have hooked up (she thinks it happens at the studio), but is sanguine about it all.

She isn’t going to throw away her meal ticket break up with her boyfriend over a few minor indiscretions, after all … you gotta look at the big picture here.

So Us claims, anyway.

Karrueche Tran is an aspiring model, if anyone wondered/cared. One who does not care about his past, obviously. Miranda Lambert would not approve.

Chris Brown and Rihanna may have kept their distance during the Grammy’s, but they’re not fooling anyone. It’s rumored that the former couple will be collaborating on the remix of Rihanna’s song “Birthday Cake.” Pair that with Brown attending her birthday party on Monday night, and we have cause to worry.

Brown’s return to the Grammy’s brought controversy as celebrities and viewers were vocal about his performance Sunday night. Twitter trended #RIPChrisBrown after he tweeted, “Hate all u want becuz I got a Grammy now! That’s the ultimate F*ck Off!” Is it us, or does that sound like a man who is NOT sorry for beating his ex?

Rihanna, we love your new blonde locks, but maybe the bleach is getting to your head. What do you think about this couple reconciling?

Will Rihanna and Chris Brown Get Back Together?

Will Rihanna and Chris Brown do the unthinkable?

Nearly three years after the infamous assault that ended their relationship and nearly put him in jail, the two are working toward getting back together, according one of the most prolific and unreliable celebrity news sources around! That’s crazy!

Chris Brown and Rihanna’s Tweets this week got people talking, and MediaTakeOut (dot) com has apparently “been hearing reports for some time” that Rihanna and Brown are working on “RECONCILIATION” (their word, and unnecessary capitals).

SO is it happening or not?

Rihanna and Chris

According to the celebrity gossip site, a person close to Chris Brown says he’d like nothing more than to get back with her. But since the “incident” Chris felt that he’d destroyed any and all chances of a relationship with his “soul mate.”

So he stayed away from her, by law, at her request.

But now things have changed. Rihanna and Chris are speaking to each other on the phone, exchanging IMs and text messages to boot. Insanity!

She’s in Barbados right now (check out these bikini photos!) but they reportedly plan to meet up when Rihanna returns to Los Angeles next week.

Chris is said to be ecstatic, but Jay Z and Rihanna’s managers are reportedly furious that they’re back on speaking terms and may reconcile?

Will they? Is any or all of this true? Stay tuned …
