Chris Brown has turned into an alcoholic mess in the wake of his domestic violence scandal with Barbados-born singer Rihanna.
The 19-year-old entertainer, who has pleaded not guilty to felony assault and making criminal threats stemming from his alleged attack on Rihanna, is reportedly struggling to cope with the professional fallout from the scandal and has turned to booze in a bid to keep things in prospective.
A babbling spy tells snitch site X17Online: “Chris is a mess. He lost a lot of weight, about 15 lbs. I do know that Chris is also in a depression and is drinking a lot. He almost got his butt kicked about a week ago.”
Chris, a once respected R&B star, is accused of punching, biting, and choking Rihanna until she was nearly unconscious during an altercation in his rented silver Lamborghini in the early hours of February 8.
If convicted he faces over four years in prison.
