While Brown is facing the backlash of the incident, Rihanna is getting major support from the music industry, including longtime pal and assistant Melissa Forde, who has been by her side after she was hospitalized. Brown's pals have also spoken in his support.
"Chris is all right. He's a good kid. He feels very bad that something like this happened," the New York Daily News quoted Brown's pal and stylist Michael (Mike B) Barnett as telling People magazine.
Another pal said: "You can tell everybody that Chris really feels bad about the whole situation, about it coming out the way that it happened, the way he went about it, the way she went about it, It's just a wacky situation."
Meanwhile, Brown is free on 50,000-dollar bail after his arrest on one felony count of making criminal threats. The district attorney's office asked Tuesday for further investigation before it decides whether to pursue the case and possibly add charges.
