Melbourne, Feb 26 (ANI): American singer-songwriter Chris Brown is said to be in hiding after threats were made to his life, following the release of Rihanna's pictures after he allegedly assaulted her.
Brown, 19, who is staying away from the limelight, has his bodyguards surrounding him at all times, as he fears for his life.
"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," the Daily Telegraph quoted a source as telling In Touch Weekly.
Brown not only has to face the law but Rihanna's fans and friends also, and after the release of the pictures online, things have gotten worse for him.
"Chris is a marked man. 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," a music insider said.
"The picture was the last straw. The threats started pouring in the moment that appeared online," the insider added. (ANI)
