    R&B singer Chris Brown to be questioned in alleged domestic violence attack against Rihanna
    6:35 PM, February 8, 2009

    Los Angeles police said they plan to detain R&B singer Chris Brown for questioning in connection with an alleged domestic violence assault against his girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

    Both stars canceled their performances at tonight's Grammy Awards. The alleged incident is being investigated as a felony domestic violence case. It was reported about 12:30 a.m. Sunday in Hancock Park.

    Brown and Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, were apparently in a car together and got into an argument on North June Street, according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement. Brown stopped the car, the two got out, and the argument escalated, according to police.

    A witness called 911, but Brown was gone when officers arrived at the scene. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker, according to police.

    Brown and Rihanna had appeared together Saturday night at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy gala in Beverly Hills.

    Shortly before the Grammy show began at 5 p.m. at Staples Center, Grammy officials issued a statement saying, "We have just been informed Rihanna will not be attending tonight’s 51st Grammy Awards. Rihanna will not be performing. We are sorry to see she is unable to join us this evening.”

    A publicist for the Barbados-born star, who sold more digital song downloads than any other in 2008 with nearly 10 million tracks, said Sunday night, “Rihanna is well. Thank you for your concern and support.”

    Her song “Disturbia,” which she’d been scheduled to perform at the ceremony, was the sixth best-selling digital track of the year. She was replaced by veteran soul singer Al Green, who was accompanied by country singer-guitarist Keith Urban.

    Brown’s record label spokesman did not respond to The Times’ request for comment. His whereabouts were unknown as the Grammy show began. Brown finished 2008 as the fourth-best-selling artist in the digital realm, posting 6.8 million tracks sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    Yeah... This could be a tremendous blow to his career, considering his "nice guy" image.


    (btw, perhaps this thread should be moved to International Movies, TV & Celebrity Gists)

    This is very true!! At 19 you don't have the self restraint to not beat your very famous girlfriend in a limo while you are, both, on your way to the Grammys? That's some Ike Turner sh*t...

    This may not be the last time we hear about incidents like this with Chris Brown.....

    I have never been a fan of Chris Brown or Rihanna for that matter, what a pity...and not to place everything on Obama because he is only a human being with flaws albeit a highly placed human but can't this young nucca see how that man speaks about his wife? How he treats his wife and learn something from that?

    I will bet my bottom dollar, it is all going to be squashed, she is not going to press charges and that's the sad thing about it because the record company is not going to want the scandal.

    I hope they ride the storm out but most of all, I hope she will leave him because it just takes one time and how she deals with it will determine how he deals with her from now on both as a lover and a friend. My own be sey, e just take ONE time for person who no be my papa or mama to touch me the wrong way, it just takes one time for a hand to be raised talkless of having contact with my person...we shall all see how the drama unfolds or not.

    Well, to be fair... We don't know exactly what happened.

    Not to say that there's any excuse to get your Tyson on your woman, but Rihanna supposedly has a history of being pretty possessive, hot-tempered and borderline violent herself.

    If Obama speaks about his wife in a certain way... treats her in a certain way, it's because of the kind of woman his wife IS. And maybe Rihanna is not that same kind of woman.

    I don't think my comment suggested that I assumed anything beyond what has been stated in the news and if it did, I didn't mean to assert that he has beaten the crap outta her but if someone is being pulled for domestic violence then I think it is safe to assume that something physical transpired, it might not be a punch to the eye but even a push or a grab of the arm can be constituted as domestic violence. And if that is the case, it is safe to assume then that charges can be brought against the offending party.

    Yes, I can understand your point about something in Michelle O's character that does not make room for any disrespect from her husband but then again I can say that Chris Brown knew the kind of woman he has and could have walked away from the situation. He lost control. Yes, some women just know how to push the right button but then if you are going to date that certain type of woman then you need work out your methodology of how best to deal with her especially if you live your life in the spotlight.

    He DID walk away! He walked away and left her lying on the ground in Hancock Park! :excite

    But yeah... We don't know yet if he even actually hit her. Maybe she started wilding out and he had to push her off him and she fell... She light-skinded so maybe she bruise easily!

    Apart from jokes, though... Domestic violence is no laughing matter and I surely don't endorse it. But man... Some women really know how to push a man.

    People say "Just walk away," but sometimes it's not that easy. I've personally witnessed situations where the man is trying to walk away and the woman is blocking the door, talking about "Your dick is small!" and hitting dude in the face with a cellphone.

    How the hell do you "walk away" in such a situation?
