Six years after he brutally beat Rihanna, Chris Brown is off the hook — legally, at least.

A judge lifted the 25-year-old's probation on Friday, and closed the assault case stemming from the 2009 pre-Grammy attack on his then-girlfriend.

Chris had his probation revoked as recently as January of this year, when he left Los Angeles without permission to perform at a show in Northern California.

The decision came on the heels of a glowing report from Chris' probation officer, who, after a previous stern recommendation from the probation department that the singer serve jail time, stated that he had fulfilled his community service.

We'd like to remind you all that their previous recommendation was for Chris to go to jail!

So, not only is he NOT going to jail, he's currently OFF probation and OUT of the legal system? That's a pretty drastic change, right?

Breezy even sent out a jubilant tweet to announce the news:

The third time is definitely NOT the charm for Suge Knight.

The rapper was hospitalized for a third time in one month after appearing in court to face murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges.

Suge told a Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Monday that he had been receiving inadequate medical care since being jailed in January over the alleged hit-and-run death of his friend, Terry Carter.

The 49-year-old said he had been suffering from blindness in one eye and only 15 percent vision in the other, and had lost 35 pounds while in custody.

Suge also stated he had difficulty comprehending the proceedings.

In his court appearance, Suge told the judge that he fired the lawyers present and wanted to represent himself. While Suge tried to speak out during the proceedings, the judge apparently admonished him for doing so, which made Suge curse under his breath.

The judge wanted to transfer the Death Row Records founder's cases, but Suge had already been hospitalized again.

Another hearing has been set for March 9th, so we'll keep you posted on any updates.

Could things be looking up for Suge Knight??

While the District Attorney continues to build a case against the rapper, a source close to Suge reveals he might have something in his arsenal that will help him win the case.

According to an insider, Suge's team was able to get their hands on a video of everything that happened the night of the fatal hit-and-run.

Apparently footage on the tape shows someone holding a gun and pointing it at the 49-year-old in an ambush — and that someone is believed to be Cle "Bone" Sloan, the man injured in the unfortunate incident.

Based on the clip, the source also states that they now believe Terry Carter, the man who died from being hit, was a part of an elaborate plot to attack the former mogul.

Crazy stuff! However, things get even crazier.

A source within the law enforcement department said the police believe the video will help their case against Suge!
