Update: Rihanna confirmed as assault victim
Rihanna and Chris Brown minutes before their fight
Relating to our post earlier today, various media outlets have confirmed that Rihanna (birth name Robyn Rihanna Fenty) was the alleged victim of assault by Chris Brown.
New reports indicate a weapon was not involved, but that Rihanna has “contusions and bite marks.
The LAPD is expected to give a briefing on the case this evening.
Brown has been charge with one count felony criminal threats, which could result in up to 9 years in prison. His court date for this matter is apparently set for March 5th.
Wrigley didn’t waste anytime. The popular chewing gum brand has already suspended the previously squeaky-clean Chris Brown from their ad campaign.
Ironically – and sadly – Brown witnessed domestic abuse in his own home growing up.
In 2007, he spoke with Giant magazine about how his father used to beat his mother, stating “he made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, ‘I’m just gonna go crazy on him one day…’ I hate him to this day.”
Check out these pics of the duo right before the incident, at the pre-Grammy party and in the vehicle where the fighting reportedly began.
We hope that all of this horrendous news is not true, but it’s not looking good…
