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.

    How did this go racial? This is so dumb, and yet those who spoke out against black people show exactly why there are organizations for black people. If black people don’t help each other no one will. Sadly they don’t help each other enough. So many see them as worthless lazy complainers and say there may be a few but they are so rare. What do you do when your mom and dad didn’t have a good enough job for you to go to school, and they needed you to work right away just to pay the bills. Without scholarships pointed to the black community many wouldn’t make it because the generation before them were slaves and the next generation barely made it beyond that point because there were no schools. The HISTORICALLY black colleges were created in a time when other schools wouldn’t take blacks. They stayed black because how many whites do you know WANT to go to a school with all black students. There are a few, but not many jump up and down saying I want to go to Spelman.Also many try their best not to let any minority in because they don’t feel they should get it, and you have a problem. People complain about there being affirmitve action, but doesn’t it seem odd that many companies struggle to meet the so called quota when it comes to higher up jobs? Without it many would not have a job at all. I am not saying people don’t abuse the system, but that is all people. I see many white people do the same thing, but many act as though it is one sided. take away welfare and see how many white low income families complain.. I watch as my cousin does her best to stay off welfare. I work with girls/young women who are going to the nursing program and working part or full time so they can do better, but the only way they can make it is with a food stamps. Not a hand out, but a hand up as they attempt to do something better, but I guess these girls I see are that rare exceptions that may not get a chance if noone realizes that they are exceptional people. Sadly until people care about each other, and I mean all people we will stay where we are. There are enough white and black people telling black kids they are worthless, and they believe it because no one is telling them differently or showing them a differnt way. Most of the time you go on a better path because something or someone showed you that there is something to strive for and that no one can or will stop you, but will instead encourage you. sorry so long this is a big problem to me.

    These racist just came on here to be hateful. I’m sure they are not that stupid to think that only black people are involved in domestic violence situations. They would never express these hateful views in a public setting out of fear. They just like to antagonize via internet. They are just pathetic cowards hiding behind a computer screen.

    lol @ 117 ~*Adrienne*~

    Someone can be spawn from their sister’s womb if their grand father procreated with his own daughter. But I wouldn’t expect your retarded inbred ass to unravel something so “complex.” Come up with something colorful already. Slow ass cracker.

    Chris had an abusive stepfather in the home. He witnessed his mother being abused. It is not uncmmon for him to act out what he saw in his formulative years. As adults they seek out unhealthy relationships to continue the pattern of abuse that affected them deeply. It is like brain freeze. He needs therapy and so does Rhianna.

    These dysfunctional relationships are called co- dependecy. I doubt if this is the first time he was abusive towards her. Rhianna should take time to heal her emotional wounds from the past. A woman should never allow herself to be treated poorly.

    Ummm my dad tried to kill my mom, and I have friends in the same situation. Guess what, we are white… and the men in question are also racist. Being a bad person has nothing to do with skin-color. Maybe, however, the fact that most Black people in America live in poverty, those conditions lead to stress and acting irrationally.

  9. Buzz

    I’m white and I like to be beaten up by black women.
    Any takers?
    Cmon after you get slapped around by your boyfriend/pimp
    you can beat the shit out of me?

    That is a generlizing statement. Most black people do not live in poverty. That is a racist comment. Chris brown and Rhiana certainly are not living in poverty and they are black. These racist generlizing statements are ridiculous.

    Do u know she tries to register on ***sugarmingle. c om***, but has been refused for some reasons. I do not think it’s hard to join that site. Britney has her profile there.

    #203 actually whats disgusting is that you know all of this. I wouldn’t give the time of day to learn about anything that has to do with incest. You are just like every other black person literally THE ONLY “diss” you can come up with is anything that involves incest, crackers (yum), inbreds and hick/redneck. Wheres your originality and wittyness? Apparently nowhere to be found. Slow? You are looking in too deep. Just because the “grandfather” has sex with his own daughter means nothing. AT ALL. You can have sex as many times as you want until your hearts content with any person in your family but you can’t be born from your own sister. THAT means, you would be born from your mother. Oh, by the way, i dont take offense to cracker either, you know why? because cracker is the term used for people who live in Florida. You can be black, white, purple, or pink living in Florida but you are still, a cracker. But thats ok, i wouldnt expect a boring, unwitty, and dull person such as yourself to understand most of anything.

    SHAME ON ALL OF YOU! Is this how you want our country to be represented?! With a seperation of black and white?????? Why can’t we all live together and forget our color?? Better yet, don’t forget it, just LIVE WITH IT. Its times like these i just want to paint the world purple so we all are the same color and will finally stop squabbling over stupid petty shit!!!! No matter if your black or white or latino or asian you are NOT i repeat NOT better or worse in ANY WAY. EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT whether you like it or not. If everyone was the same in every single way the world would be boring! That’s whats great about America! Whether you people like it or not the world is going to keep changing so why don’t you learn to deal with it in a positive way?? One of the first steps you can do to make this happen is by stopping this ridiculous racism from BOTH SIDES. Speaking of which, why can’t it be just ONE SIDE? It’s ridiculous enough that country’s are fighting eachother, but people WITHIN their own country? STUPID. I don’t care if this message doesnt mean anything to you but seriously everyone who is complaining about racism then RESPONDING with racist comments are just as bad as the people who first make racist comments. GROW UP AND START ACTING LIKE ADULTS.

    Hey, what about some recognition for the tip, BUDDY!

  16. Alex

    I can’t believe u people turned this into a racial thing. The guy abused her. Doesn’t matter if she was asking for it (typical mysoginistic excuse) or if she hit him first, it is called abuse because he si abusing of his strenght and power and she can’t responde in the same way. It is sick, HE is sick.

    and @ 108 jimmy, a southern hillbilly ruined your country and the rest of the country chose a black man to save it. hum.

    I hope he goes to jail and has a NICE time with the happy inmates, I bet he’ll like that, you´d have to be a pussy to hit another girl.

    @105 Rich Ports Ghost.. Thank you!! That was brilliant.

  18. I think this is a woman’s way of saying: DO NOT MESS WITH ME, pal!!

    210, Actually, statistically speaking, most Black-Americans DO live in poverty. It’s not racist to state a fact. I am not even racist. I hate when people try to make every single thing people say into “racism.” Wanna see REAL racism? Read some of the stupid comments on here that are trying to imply that whites are somehow better than blacks.

  20. Nique

    I’m not saying what he did was right. But looking towards other sources, it was alleged that she gave him herpes. Well……..She gave him herpes and she got her ass beat. Two wrongs don’t make it right, bur sure as hell makes it even!

    #202 You’re right on the money. Why else come here and say all this stuff other than to antagonize and see what kind of a knee-jerk response you can draw from all the bigots. It’s fun to provoke the black racists and the white racists and the stupid liberals and the religious fanatic conservatives and the inbred southerners and the drugged up ghetto welfare thugs and etc, etc, etc.

  23. Lauren

    I don’t care what anybody says. Whether or not she provoked him (which I don’t believe she did), it was still no excuse for him to be violent towards her. People need to quit being so sexist and leave Rihanna alone. And I’m glad he got arrested, he deserved it.

  24. sin

    He beat her up when he realised the people that were around them were there for her, no him. He is a pimple on a dogs ass. His ego was busted when he finally figured it out that he is a nothing. Gee.. a black person who can sing. How hard is it to find that. Any church will do.
    Hopefully he will get gang raped in prison and commit suicide.

    @223 well said,Lauren!!!

    Anybody else notice this chic looks like Gozur the Gozarian in Ghostbusters? Aim for the flat top!

  27. Nigger President = Hairless Ape

    Negro’s are mentally and physically unable to deal with emotions, much like with other wild animals, they act mainly on instinct. For instance, when a negro comes across an unguarded valuable item, it’s first instinct is to steal it. When a negro comes across an unprotected white woman, it’s first instinct is to rape it. And the biggest problems with these uncontrolled herds of apes running rampant through the streets is when they congregate, because the group, or tribe, then takes on an even more primitive instinct and begins to destroy their immediate surroundings. Like when a pro sports team wins a championship, the herds of negro apes immediately destroy their surroundings, stealing, looting, raping, and burning everything in their path. Much like army ants in the jungles of South America. The same reaction can be observed when the roaming tribes learn of the fate of one of their herd being prosecuted. It’s a shame that guilty white liberals have given human rights to wild animals that obviously need to be contained. The only time the negro ape was ever useful and organized is when they were slaves. The emancipation of the apes is one of the biggest political blunders in the history of the Earth.

    lol, he opened a can of whoop-ass on her!!!!! KAPOWWWWW

    bitch is down….shes a stuck up BI-HATCH anyway…..dirty rag head

  29. Phatty Girl

    Although there is no justfication for any abuse, Robin had to have done something serious. I just don’t take Chris as the type of fella to strike a woman. And you Dick who said the comments about the nigger, talk to a real black man and see how far you get with it.

  30. Victoria P.

    OH,RHIANNA IS STILL GOING TO LIVE. SO WHAT IF HE DID THOSE THINGS? WHAT IS SHE, WEAK? WHY IS EVERYONE MAKING A BIG DEAL?

  32. Lauren

    Also, just because someone is a celebrity doesn’t mean they are perfect and incapable of doing anything wrong. I think he really did do this. And even if Rihanna did something to make him mad, no one told Chris to put his hands on her. He made that decision himself.

  33. Ariel

    Superfish, I have a lot of respect for you for saying Chris Brown assaulted Rhianna instead of “smacked” or “knocked” around.

    Chris Brown, enjoy your legacy

  34. rick

    you know the sad thing is, this probably wont hurt his career at all. Idiots will continue to buy his music

  35. C'bbean

    Cate……dont u ever say somthing like that again, “never trust a black man”…. just shows that u are racist. What about all those crazy white pple (not racist) that do crazy things and i mean real shit….that ten million times worse than Chris brown, “Never Trust a White Man” sounds more like it LOL.

    Chris Brown juss happens to be Black and FAMOUS…u idiot. He was dead wrong for puttin his hands on a woman….regardless of what happened. On the other hand….what if it was a girl who had beat a man? Girls wants to be independent like men…..so……thecknically…men and women should be treated equally….but…..owell…the LAW is always on a woman’s side.

    I was waitin till the day Chris F$%ked up. “Forever doomed” lol. Pple always thought Chris was a good boy….girls freakin out n shit….dont kno half shit bout the man. Juss took a Bajan girl to show his True collors lol…

    What goes around comes around….REMEMBER THAT!!!!!! u will get cought one way or another.

  36. ah

    i cant blame chris brown for losing it. she knew she had an STD and they didnt have protected sex and she ended up giving him herpes. now hes gonna go to jail and have sores on his man piece. gross.

  44. Both women and men can commit battery. The laws are not written just to address men offensively touching women but also women offensively touching men. I continue to reserve my opinion until all of the investigation is completed and at least good effort has been made to bring all the facts out. However, if it is determined that Rihanna initiated the battering for whatever reason it is my opinion that she should be punished too. If the American legal system allows women to batter men and expect no punishment then abuse of men will occur. I prefer to take logical approach to this matter remove the names and sexes and figure out who was the starting aggressive party. That is where to start when analyzing this unfortunate incident. I think it is important to be fair and hear both parties out in this case. Finally it has not been proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Chris Brown caused all Rihanna’s bruises. The bottom-line is anyone in America is presumed innocent until proven guilty. No verdict has been rendered. Further defenses can be asserted. Also it is very wise for Chris Brown to remain silent until he goes to court. It is not the media’s nor the public’s judgment that will determine whether he will remain a free man; it is the court’s and thank goodness!
