Chris Brown allegedly abused Rihanna before, supporters retracting statements

February 12th, 2009 // 117 Comments

Chris Brown allegedly has a history of assaulting Rihanna. While TMZ cites the police report where Rihanna claims she’s been abused before, Us Weekly reports she had bruises on her neck as recently as December:

Brown — who is currently being investigated by Los Angeles county prosecutors after Rihanna allegedly accused him of assaulting her the night before the Grammys — always had a “volatile” relationship with the singer, an insider tells Us.
A Rihanna confidant adds that bruises were clearly visible on the singer’s neck in early December.
Alarmed, “I asked is everything was OK with her and Chris,” says the pal. “She told me, ‘We broke up again.’ I didn’t pursue the issue further.”

Meanwhile, T.I. and actor Terrence Howard have retracted statements they made. Both claim had they known what Chris Brown was accused of they would’ve never spoken, according to E! News:

When asked by paparazzi last night if he had any comment on the Chris Brown incident with Rihanna, the actor said, “It’s just life, man. Chris is a great guy. He’ll be all right. And Rihanna knows he loves her. She’ll be all right. Just everybody’s got to get out of their way.”
But now, Howard is insisting he didn’t know about the allegations made against Brown when he made his remarks.
“When they asked me about Chris Brown the other day, I was in no way aware of what he had been accused of,” Howard said in a statement. “Had I known, I would have never had said something so insensitive.”
Howard is the second high-profile celeb in as many days to retract remarks they made about Brown and Rihanna.
Rapper T.I. issued a statement yesterday regretting comments he made the night before on Last Call With Carson Daly. T.I. said he “made a mistake of commenting before understanding the situation.”

E! News also reports Chris Brown is hiding out in Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino while waiting for the district attorney’s office to file charges, so at least he’s having fun. That’s probably the best thing he can do for his case right now. Short of going to Disneyland and punching Tinkerbell in the mouth.


  1. He’ll be dancing for quarters on the street corner by August.

    In fairness, Rihanna has a long history of deserving to be hit.

  3. Jupiter

    I don’t see what everybody’s so upset about. She desperately needed plastic surgery anyway.

  4. Rap's epitaph

    “Rap made a mistake of commenting before understanding the situation”

  5. ROFL

    Phew, thank God. #2 made the obvious joke that Rihanna deserved to be hit. For a minute there, I thought nobody would say it. Fortunately, we’ve got the king of fucking comedy here, folks.

    Seriously, I don’t know how you do it, Phil. Is it your small penis? Or your lack of touching a vagina? I can’t decide.

  6. WOW!

    I don’t know about you all, but have you ever been out with a Barbadian woman!?!? They are quite a hand AND mouthful….

    **I arrest my case**

  7. T.I.

    Allow me to clarify: she’s most definitely a bitch and a ho, but you got to know when to stop. When they actually manage to get to the hospital, you’ve stepped over the line.

  8. Massa'

    The ape class still communicates with hand gestures, grunts, and illegible howling and screaming. The evolution of the apes is a slow if not halted process.

  9. Phil

    #5 – sorry, I can’t reciprocate your attraction to me. Try to focus on the story instead.

  10. Jesse

    It’s only a crime if you hit a white woman, everybody knows that.

  11. The House Negros are at it again.

  12. Hi-C


    In fairness, Phil has a long history of my meat in his mouth. What’s that Phil? MMMHHH MHHH MH MMMHHH MMHHH. Haha, you have such pretty eyes.

  13. Deacon Jones

    Man, they are going to have a fucking field day when he gets tossed in the slammer. They’ll literally be fighting over who gets to pop his 19 year old ass’s cherry. Those guys DO NOT fuck around in federal.

    My buddy in the Marines said the guy next to him used to make his cell mate wear a dress every night before he raped him. It was the craziest story, he said the guy would literally sob into his pillow for a half hour every night.

    I’ll bet tough guy wont be making that face in pic 4 when that jail cell door clangs shut.

  14. Phil

    Again, #5 (now #12), I don’t share your homosexual fantasies. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  15. Apes in the White House

    Negro’s need to be kept in zoo’s with the other apes. Plus, since they have similar DNA to humans, we could use them for medical, biological, and chemical testing. It’s a shame to use those cute chimpanzee’s when their is such an overpopulation of jungle bunnies. That way the negro could actually be useful to the white man for the first time in 150 years.

  16. Well it’s clear they both picked scissors, now they need to try again…

  17. Holyfuck

    At some point in the next month or two this little bitch is going to get the beat down of a lifetime, and it will be well deserved. Nobody will be charged in the beating and Chris will just be happy to get out of it with his life. As he should be.

  18. Binky

    Lol Rich

  19. Erik

    That’s a nice pink sweatshirt he’s wearing. I’d say he’s “pre-adapted” for what’s in store for him next…

  20. Jrz

    I get lap dances, play Blackjack and drink $25 gimlets when I feel remorseful…..don’t we all?

  21. Kelley

    Number 15. … negro’s ?? zoo’s ?? Don’t you mean negoes and zoos ?? Can’t spell ? Don’t post.

  22. Jrz

    HAHAHAHAHAHA Rich…you funny fuck!

  23. Since all black men are on the “down low”, these two are just showing how many fingers they like in their ass’

  24. Jrz

    Kelley….don’t YOU mean negroes? Can’t type? Shut the fuck up.

  25. Jrz

    Kelley….don’t YOU mean negroes? Can’t type? Shut the fuck up.

    You guys watch “Oz” too much. Beatdowns and buttfucks (non-consensual) don’t happen in minimum- or medium-security prisons, which constitutes the vast majority of prisons in the U.S.

    It’ll be a first offense for him and it’ll probably be shown that she started the fight, including the physical part. He’ll get at most a few months in a medium-security prison and then a long probation period.

    In the fucked up music world of today, his career will recover a few years after he gets out, as long as he’s publicly repentant and a model citizen. That story always plays – for a young black guy. Shut up, you know that’s true.

  27. RichPort's Vaginal Irritation Balm

    Maybe #15′s English teacher was a darkie, Kelley. Although the thought of an ape teaching English is appalling, it could’ve happened.

  28. Danklin24

    What a bitch. This punkass should just tie a rope to his hotel shower curtain and get it over with. If you’re famous and you hit a woman your career is dead and no one wants to hire a woman beater. Hell I’ll even hand the guy the fucking rope.

  29. p0nk

    well done rich.

    apparently scissors beats umbrellas.

  30. Bruce Springsteen

    I guess it’s true, people from New Jersey tend to stutter.

  31. Yoda

    Responsibility, literacy, employment……a Negro craves not these things.

  32. Jrz

    No, jerkoffs from other parts of the world who design Moveable Type have flawed programs.

  33. Racist

    I am a racist, and I approve these messages.


  34. real world

    “no one wants to hire a woman beater”


    Good one. For regular jobs, sure, but in Hollywood or the music world:

  35. Danklin24’re delusional, this guy will not do any time. He’ll pay a fine and a slap on the wrist because he’s a rich black man, but his career is dead.

  36. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

    How fitting that someone like you, would not know the difference between “there” and “their”. Slack jaw, inbred, mouth breathing 6th grade dropouts tend to be the norm when it comes to ignorant racist dipshits like you.

    Is it weird having a dad who is also your uncle? I am serious, not trying to be funny here at all.

  37. A. Lincoln

    If people refused to hire young black guys who have criminal records, their unemployment rate would be 90% (instead of 75%).

  38. Yippie

    Ooooh…is that his gangsta face?


  39. yep

    sissy nig.

  40. Uncle Eccoli

    Ugh. Who gives a fuck? Hit her again, Chris.

  41. Cathy

    His career should be dead right now, but it isn’t. It all depends on what happens next. Even if he gets convicted, all he has to do is make a show of contrition, like, have his agent put out a press release saying he’s in intensive counseling. Add something about how it’s all due to abuse he suffered as a child. Do a tearful interview on BET. He’ll be just fine after that. The expectations are so low for male blacks, in general and especially in the music industry, that he simply needs to not be a violent criminal anymore (or, switch his genre to rap).

  42. Ned

    He should pay the $100 fine for beating up a black girl and move on. It’s not like he killed her ($250).

  43. Yoda

    Hygiene, Commitment, Self-control, a negro craves not these things…..

  44. Pugly

    Wow, I know the sites called ‘the superficial’ an all but my gosh. What a lot of stereotypical racist comments. I wonder how many of you folk believe in creationism too???

  45. Wow, holy shit I was gonna comment, but go so into reading the fighting going back and forth, I have no clue what to say.

  46. Wow, holy shit I was gonna comment, but go so into reading the fighting going back and forth, I have no clue what to say.

    Rest assured that when the police get involved, it is not the first incident.

    No one deserves to be beaten, and it is a crime to beat someone. However, typically before punches are thrown there is an escalation of violence that both people are part of.

    From the reports, they both did shitty things to each other: possible cheating, screaming, name calling, throwing keys, etc. The back and forth ended up with her getting beaten. (Note that arguing isn’t illegal; hitting is.)

    I feel bad for both of them. Chris apparently has a history of domestic violence in his family, and too often DV is the gift that keeps on giving. THe nicest people can get violent without conciously wanting to — it’s a reaction based on their history. Really, do you think he would have wanted things to end up this way? Or her either?

    Sadly the previous incidents were not enough to get Chris to get some help before things got to this point. And also sadly, Rihanna apparently stuck with him after he treated her in ways she shouldn’t have put up with.

    It is very easy to say things like: he’s an ass; lock him up and throw away the key. She should have left him a long time ago. She is to jealous and has a temper. Etc., etc. etc. But DV is complicated and can’t be boiled down to simple solutions. Because mixed up with the anger and tempers and violence is love and affection and history. And it is hard to know when the anger and violence is more important than the love and history.

    My guess is that if they were nobodies she would likely get back together with him (read about the cycle of violence, the “honymoon” period and why it is hard to let go…). But with all the attention that would be more difficult. Probably lots of pressure to stay apart. Which probably would be best for both of them.

    If someone hits you, you should not be with that person. And if you sometimes get so angry you hit someone, that’s a big sign that you need to get out as well.

    I can’t believe the beating was so extensive. Maybe she didn’t know that a girl can’t just yell “help!” because nobody will come, you’re supposed to yell “fire!” instead. Or maybe in her case, “take your stinking paws off me you damn dirty ape!”

    C Brown is a piece of shit, a homo !!!

    Love the stupid ass pouty spook face. Pretty in pink.
