Rihanna cancels birthday party after being bitten, punched by Chris Brown

The Superficial / February 10, 2009

While Chris Brown has been put on ice by Wrigley’s and now the NBA All-Star Games, Rihanna canceled her upcoming 21st birthday bash after being allegedly assaulted by Chris Saturday night. E! News reports:

The bash for about 200 or so guests was to have had a carnival theme with various “sideshow” attractions, says a source familiar with the planning.
Although organizers were having difficulty securing sponsors for the party because of the economy, my source says Cîroc vodka had already or was about to sign on as the leading sponsor.
“They were talking about it being at Gotham Hall, but I don’t think it was definite just yet,” the source says.

TMZ has obtained information on Rihanna’s injuries and it’s no surprise she’ll be avoiding the public for the time being:

As we reported, the photos show major contusions on both sides of the singer’s face — there is serious swelling and bruising. Her lip is split and her nose bloody. We have now confirmed there are bite marks on one of her arms and on several fingers.
And we now know this… Rihanna claims Brown struck her with his fists and that’s what did the damage. There was no object used in the alleged attack.

To anyone who says I should reserve judgment, there’s no “whole story” that’s going to justify beating and biting a woman. Unless Rihanna was getting ready to set off a nuclear bomb in Los Angeles. If that ends up being the case, then okay yeah, my apologies, Chris Brown. Until then, you’re a bitchass.
