Instead of singing “Take You Down” sources say embattled singer/songwriter Chris Brown is depressed, down and supposedly drinking ! Just hours after quietly pleading “not guilty your honor” in a Los Angeles area courtroom, rumors that Brown is depressed and down picked up steam. “He has lost a lot of weight, about 15 lbs,” a source told X17online. But the surprising tidbit the source goes on to say is Brown’s rumored drinking problem. “I do know that Chris Brown is also in a depression and is drinking a lot. He almost got his butt kicked about a week (ago),” says the source. While the unidentified source may be within his or her rights to suggest Brown is depressed, the rumor that Brown has a drinking problem is quite a feat considering the singer is just 19. Being arrested for drinking or driving under age at this point would be highly problematic for the plea deal seeking “Forever” singer — especially since his lawyers are working hard with the District Attorney to end the felony case quickly. Whether or not Brown is being slipped a beverage or two has not been confirmed to say the least but, most can agree that the Rihanna related felony assault case is taking a toll on America’s once chart-topping boy next door. As previously reported singer-turned-actor Tyrese Gibson noticed a change in Chris Brown shortly after the alleged beating and subsequent media coverage. “It’s really hard for him to focus right now on his music, even though he really wants to,” the Transformers star told reporters in March. Brown is due back in court April 29 for a preliminary hearing.
