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.

    I honestly am the biggest chris brown fan there is! But i also dont condone woman beaters, so im really torn in this situation. I do realize that we’re all human and we make mistakes. People may think just because he’s a celebrity it’s not possible that he could commit a crime or do no wrong for that matter. The only thing we know about these celebrities is what we see on tv, we think we feel connected to them personally through this but we really know as little about them as they know about everyone watching them. With that being said, chris brown should face the same consequences that any other American citizen would face and that’s the bottom line. Although I am his biggest fan, at this point I feel as though his career is over. There’s no coming back from this incident and even if he does it’ll always be in the back of everyone’s mind and we will definitely not be nearly as successful as was ever again.

    She got abused badly. *laughs hysterically*
    That’s what she gets for THINKING SHE COULD ACTUALLY SING.

  8. This is surprising. There is much more irrational, overly emotional black violence.

    You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually something which I think I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely huge for me. I am having a look ahead in your next submit, I will try to get the cling of it!
