Chris Brown arrested for assaulting Rihanna

February 9th, 2009 // 259 Comments

Chris Brown became this generation’s Ike Turner Saturday night when he assaulted his girlfriend R&B singer Rihanna after both attended the 2009 Pre-Grammy Gala & Salute (above). Chris turned himself Sunday evening after the two canceled their Grammy appearances. Both were nominees. E! News reports:

A spokeswoman for Brown’s label declined comment. Rihanna’s publicist, Amanda Silverman, would only tell E! News that the 20-year-old “Disturbia” singer was involved in an unspecified traffic mishap. “Rihanna is well,” the rep said. “Thank you for concern and support.”
Per department policy, police declined to identify the alleged victim in the incident, which occurred about 12:30 a.m. in the Hancock Park area, apparently as the two were heading home from Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy bash, where they had been all smiles.
In a statement, police say Brown and his companion “became involved in an argument. After stopping his car, Brown and the woman got out and the argument escalated. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.”
By the time officers arrived on the scene, Brown had split.

As of this post, Chris Brown has already posted bail and been released, according to TMZ. He should spend this time kissing his career good-bye, but will probably do something retarded instead like dip his Playstation in gold. Because, clearly, Chris Brown is an idiot and a gigantic pussy. “I’m going to smack my insanely famous girlfriend right before the Grammys!” SMART.

    You can take the nig out of the hood but you can’t take the hood out of the nig.

    Shut up Cate, you cow. I read somewhere that she has a broken jaw…I hope it’s not true. Oh well, we’ve all heard what happens to child molesters and wife beaters when they go to jail. If he actually has to do jail time, he’s in for a wild ride!

    Something just seems so off about Rihanna’s face. Does she have a mild form of autism?

  9. fern

    Wow, somebody’s jealous! Christ better watch his back…

  10. If you listen to most nigger music, you see that treating women like shit and beating them senseless is a virtue among the black community.

  11. Noelle

    What a fuckin douchebag. He needs to have a man kick his ass

  12. Rihanna is hot. Damn shame that punk’s beating her ass. What they should do with wife beaters like Chris Brown is cut off their hands. Then they can’t beatup women anymore. Unless they try punching them with their stumps, which doesn’t work as well. That’s justice.

    PS: Rihanna it’s time to dump the loser and step up to this!

  13. I like the clothes rather than her

  14. Meet some ladies with better style on

  15. elle

    this is so sad. chris doesn’t seem like that type of guy at all.


  17. Joseph

    He straight laid the pimp hand on her! B*tch be good!! Naaa I’m kidding. That’s some messed up crap there. Hopefully he gets what he deserves.

  18. jj

    i cant believe it
    im somehow hoping this isnt true
    cause im not crazy about them but i like them
    chris?? cmon

  19. Joseph

    Oh and Cate, a black “man” can be trusted. Chris Brown is no “man”. He’s nothing more than a punk ass thug who’s got no respect and now, no career left to speak of. The idiot can rot.

  20. Shep

    Classy. Nothing like letting the whole world know your a woman beater. This guy is OJ stupid.

  21. Chris , Find a honest man . do you like cowboy? here

  22. Dorien

    I may not like Rhianna but I sure as hell don’t think she deserves to beaten. I bet you this is not even the first time he’s done it, its just the first time its been in the public eye. I hope she finally dumps his ass cuz he doesn’t deserve her or any other woman.


    i know its wrong but I giggled at the Ike Turner reference, sorry.

  23. Cornelius

    Actually, what pisses me off the most, is that he posted the $50,000 bail instantly. He’s a 19-year-old kid, i’m 29 and I’ve never even HAD $50k on my bank account, not even close. :(

  24. Lisa

    After trying to feel her up in the car, Chris finally realized that Rihanna is a tranny and went crazy. Perfectly natural reaction.

  25. Lisa

    Oh stop whining, 23. Life isn’t fair… chances are you aren’t as amazing a dancer as he is. Not everyone gets to win the lottery.

  26. mixy

    To be fair no one knows what the hell went on. Maybe it was completely out of line. On the other hand there are a million different reasons to smack the shit out of some one – man or female. dont pass judgment with so little knowlege about the incident.

  27. Men that beat women deserve to be f*cked in the azz. Chris will be someone’s bitch real soon. Call me and I can hook it up. What an idiot…19 and dumb. Didn’t he learn anything from OJ…#20 you are right he is OJ stupid.

  28. LookOutChrisBrown

    Wanna bet Jay-Z and or T.I.

    Have something to do with teaching Chris “WomanHittinPussy” Brown a lesson.

    Hey Chris..sleep with 1 eye open.


  29. LondonBabe

    Shocking news I found better pictures about this here:

    I hope the story is not true because if it is….Chris Brown’s career in music is over!

  30. Some men can’t accept it when a woman is better, folks!!

  31. RedPanda

    I hope she is smart enough to leave his ass. No woman should ever stay with a man that hits her. Let this not be the new Ike & Tina.

  32. ishi-san

    Here is an example of what too much Cocain does to you!

  33. tripletrouble

    B*tch took his dat dere cell-tech.

  34. jojojo

    what a dick!!!

  35. -_-


  36. michy

    chris brown is clearly an assxxxx

  37. She's hideous

    Yeah she is nasty looking – like some scrubbed off jungle aborigine plus she can’t sing so why is this nobody famous?
    The dude looks like a young punk you can see it in his eyes. Not sure if life here make sense anymore with all this money being thrown in the direction of people who otherwise would either be in jail or working at BK!

  38. What took you so long?

    Finally! Fish, I’ve read this story just about everywhere else online. You and Perez were so late in posting the story, I was beginning to worry.

    Chris Brown is a douchebag. I’ve always thought so and this proves it. He can definitely kiss his career goodbye. Like Rihanna, I too am Caribbean. In our culture, it is normal for a man to hit a woman. However, I hope that Rihanna has been in America long enough to realize such behaviors are unacceptable. I sincerley hope this was the first time he’s ever done this to her and that she’s smart enough to make sure in never happens again. In other words, I hope she dumps his a$$.

  39. somebody

    I support him, even though he’s a nigger. Women need to be put in their place sometimes.

  40. roxi

    the woman hasn’t been identified yet….this site clearly isn’t a reliable news source. idiots

  41. authorego

    Ploop, it’d be good if you were off your ugly stupid face, but no such luck. People with autism spectrum disorder have normal (some beautiful) faces and some are geniuses. Do the entire non-perfect world a favor and crawl back into your neurosis.

  42. Shocked

    Wow… some people commenting here really need to take a step back a look at how ignorant you sound. Stop waving your confederate flag for a second. Take a deep breath. This is a story about a MAN hitting a WOMAN. Regardless of ethnicity (or celebrity!) it’s wrong… and it’s sad how quickly people make a human issue a race issue.

    Anyway, Rihanna is gorgeous and I just hope she doesn’t go running back and forgiving that fool like a dummy.

  43. STEVE

    So who would win in a fight chris brown or barrack obama??

  44. Wow Strong Domestic Abuse, Repped

  45. STEVE

    You know the drill, nudes or negs (rihanna) btw my money’s
    on obama

  46. friendlyfires

    It coulda’ been worse, ya’ know … one step o’er the line further, and … BAM! … Chris Brown woulda’ been this generation’s O.J. Simpson. But for that to happen, he’d have to date/kill somebody like Jessica Simpson … all in favor of Andy Dick being the white male in room who also gets killed say, “Douche-nozzles get whacked by rage-monster wannabe!”

  47. Phil Spector (I didn't do it, really)

    He’s welcome to browse my gun collection any time he likes.

  48. hendero

    One of the Grammys he was up for was the song “Take You Down”. Rhianna was up for best duet for “If I Never See Your Face Again”. How apt.

  49. Peter Griffin

    POW right in the KISSER…POW right in the KISSER…POW right in the KISSER… POW right in the KIsser… say what you want sometimes it doesn’t matter if your a women, how cute you are, or if you’re famous you just have to know when to STFU, or it’s POW right in the KISSER!
