Chris Brown Assaults Rihanna; Both Pull Out Of Grammys

Published: Monday 9th Feb 2009 by Sam
*Apologies for the recent slow-go here at That Grape Juice…server issues*
In news that has come as a shock to many, and news which rocked last night’s Grammy festivities, R&B heartthrob Chris Brown was arrested yesterday for reportedly assaulting girlfriend Rihanna. Subsequently both pulled out of their Grammy performances. Check out the report below:
Chris Brown has been arrested for reportedly attacking Rihanna.
The ‘Run It’ star handed himself in to police after officers responded to a phone call at around 12.30am on Sunday morning from an unnamed woman who accused the 19-year-old singer of hurting her.
Los Angeles police officials have declined to identify the caller, but the Los Angeles Times newspaper claim the ‘Umbrella’ singer was the victim.
A statement released by the Los Angeles Police Department said: “The identity of the victim will not be released. Any victim who’s involved in a domestic violence incident is entitled to confidentiality.
“Mr. Brown and the alleged victim 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.”
The incident is alleged to have occurred during an early morning argument in Chris’ car on a quiet street in Los Angeles’ upmarket Hancock Park neighbourhood.
Chris was not at the scene when police arrived.
Both singers pulled out of a planned appearance at last night’s Grammy Awards following the incident.
Speaking at the ceremony, ‘American Idol’ host Paula Abdul said: “I’m hearing some mixed things about what happened. All I can say is I hope Rihanna heals quickly. She’s a lovely girl.”
Despite reports the alleged victim showed visible injuries, Chris was not arrested on suspicion of physically hurting her.
However, Los Angeles Police Sergeant Bridget Pickett revealed the charges may change at a later stage in proceedings.
Pickett said: “There may be domestic violence charges added later, but that will be up to the district attorney’s office.”
Chris – who was partying with Rihanna at a pre-Grammy’s party – was released after posting $50,000 bail. {Source}
Wow. Terrible news. While we definitely have our opinions about Rihanna here at That Grape Juice, we can’t help but feel that what should have been a very special evening for her and her career was marred but this. What’s more, it’s never ever right to hit a woman. SMH…

More as the story unfolds…

    Can we all just leave it alone until more details come out because i doubt that it was just him knocking her ass out it has to be more to it that isnt writing in the police report or just isn’t being said just maybe in a couple of weeks everything will be out in the open. I just believe there is more to the situation so I wont put blame on no one until i find out everything.

    What happen to Rihanna breaking dishes and s*** like that, there’s no doubt that there relation is damaged. They were probably yelling in the car and Chris told her to shut up so he could drive then they stopped the car and she pushed up on him and Chris said he was gonna take you down Maybe her jaw is poppin and she had to run it to the emergency room
    I just wonder who throwed the first punch

    It’s never right to hit anyone. A woman should never hit a man either. To say that it’s never right to hit a woman is extremely sexist. Just don’t hit anyone regardless of your gender or theirs.

    OMG… Christ Brown is so done… I use to like him, and now I hate him…

    When the video comes out proving Chris innocent a lot of peeps are going to feel salty at Ms. No Talent.

    She’s crazy, clingy and demanding. This goes to show there was never anything between her and J..

    She’s tired, all this lip syncing and trying to remember how to move her mouth at the right time has taken it’s toll on the poor girl…Go home and get some rest and see what happens in the future..

    By then a chip could have been placed in her throat to make her sound better..

    It’s never ok for a man to hit a woman. I will never support/buy anything that has to do with CB.

    It might not be Rihanna who was involved. It could be some other girl. And Rihanna just found out about it so she decided not to go to the Grammies… We’ll see…

    I can’t believe he hit any woman for that matter, whoever it turns out to be! This is going to make his ratings go waaaayyy down and it serves him right! I hate to hear about this kind of news!

    Everyone needs to slow down with the anti-woman abuse campaign. As a woman, I am anti-abuse PERIOD, man or woman, but if a woman thinks she can REPEATEDLY hit a man and he’s not going to defend himself than something is wrong with you. If woman hit another woman and if the woman who was attacked first beat the crap out of her attacker, no one is going to condemn her for protecting herself. Everyone wants to hang Chris, but how many times did was hit before he even pushed her and tried to walk away. WE don’t know. Lots not exaggarate the situation w/o the details.

    you know, whether rihanna might be possesive or watever the case to get batterd by a man is completely outrageous. the report even says it was a weapon involved as well that she was hit with more than his fist. wat a f****** loser..i hope his career is finished. to do that to any woman but especially ms f****** starlight rihanna lol he really f***** himself..she is likee the media’s prize catch so he’s f*****.

    HE SHOULD HAVE DONE WHAT MADEA SAID IN THE PLAY “MADEA GOES TO JAIL”

    “DON’T YOU HIT THAT WOMAN. LET ME GET YOU SOME MASE”

    HE SHOULDA MASED HER ASS. THEN HE JUST WOULD HAVE HAD TO PAY A FINE. BUT THIS IS REALLY TERRIBLE THOUGH BOTH WAYS BECAUSE YOU CAN’T GET RID OF H***** AND THAT IS WHAT’S BEING REPORTED THAT RIHANNA GAVE HIM AND THAT’S WHY HE HIT HER. DAMN SHAME. SMH.

    It’s a part of the story that’s not adding up and I’m not letting Rihanna off of the hook just yet. For all we know, she could have deebo’d his a** and called fail when he was trying to protect himself. We’ll just wait and see…

  26. Danni82 February 9, 2009

    Yep folks, don’t point fingers until the whole story’s told. I’m a RiRi fan myself, but it’s just really hard for me to picture little ass Chris Brown hauling off on somebody without being coerced to do it. SOMETHING else had to go down. Did she hit him first? Told him she was f****** his best friend? Told him she gave him a STD? Told him she was pregnant and aborted it? Who knows, but don’t judge him OR her until you’ve heard anything. Hell, I bet they stay together afterward. Sounds like young immature relationship ish to me.

    I agree with you Danni82, people are quick to judge
    I hope he still has a career, the truth ain’t out yer, everyones painting Rihanna out as the good girl in this, she did something for him to act that way, thats not in his nature but because his a boy he looks bad in this Drama, if it was the other way round, their would be less fuss

    Guys get it hard, even when their innocent, until all truth out, then judge

    “Rihanna is the named alleged victim in the Chris Brown case and the allegation is that she was assaulted with a deadly weapon, TMZ.com has confirmed.

    Law enforcement officials call the incident assault with a deadly weapon and the crime report gives the victim’s name as Robyn Fenty, better known as Rihanna. The nature of the weapon is unknown.

    Both artists pulled out of their performances at Sunday’s Grammy Awards. Brown was arrested and booked on felony charges the same night.

    Rihanna’s publicist issued a statement on Sunday saying, “Rihanna is well. Thank you for your concern and support.”

    That was real, and now with the weapon thing it feels sick and creepy, Chris you’re done b****

    2 ANON12:55 YOU MORON IF YOU HAD OF REALLY DONE YOUR RESEARCH YOU WOULD KNOW THAT IT REALLY WASN’T A WEAPONED THAT HE USED. THE POLICE JUST HAVE TO CALL IT THAT FOR THE PENAL CODE SECTION 245 OR 247. AND YOU DON’T KNOW ALL THE FACTS AS TO WHY HE DID THIS OR NOT. F****** IDIOT. LET’S HEAR EVERYTHING FIRST. HELL RIAHNNA’S WACK ASS CAREER COULD BE OVER AND “THAT B**** COULD BE DONE” SMDH

    Chris Brown should not be given a 2nd chance with Rihanna or his career! This industry has given him too much pride for his age and he deserves at least 9 years in prison without possible early parole. It’s time these celebrities stay in for the full term just like normal Americans have to. Why is it that celebrities are given at least 5 years in prison but are released just a few months later while regular Americans don’t get that right???

    Everyone is quick to burn Chris at the stakes and all the information hasn’t even came out yet. I’ve seen girls hit and provoke guys all the time. A guy can only take so much before he snaps. Why is that a girl can beat up on a guy and when he defends himself, he’s crucified. Girls are just as accountable as guys.

    ^^^^ u are such a dumb f***…. i'm sorry to say that, but u really are

    chris brown bit rihanna and punched her in the face… this is official news on CNN & NBC

    Wrigley Gum has dropped chris brown as their ad spokesperson

    no matter how much pain in ass a woman can be, u dumb f**** need to realize that i STILL does not make it ok for a man to hit a woman….. thats no man!!

    it sounds like he was having s** with a prositute at Hancock Park.

  34. Anonymous February 9, 2009

    Who the f*** bits someone in a damn fight? Ur watching NBC and CNN for your damn news. Ur a total dumbass. If Chris Brown did beat her up then why is she not pressing charges. Reports say that they was spotted together this morning leaving the hotel and relocating. Something is not adding up. Get over the anti-woman abuse s*** and grow the f*** up. Yes a man shouldn’t hit a woman. But a woman shouldn’t hit a man either.

    PS – Wrigley suspended his ad. Its against the law to breach a contract without a conviction. Get ur facts straight dumbass.

    Some persons are saying they need to hear both sides of the story before they can make a judgement. It doesn’t matter what happened in that car. You all have mothers and some have sisters. He had no right to put his hands on that girl. A real man doesn’t become physical with a woman, no matter how angry she makes him. A real man walks away.

    His behaviour must be a painful reminder to his mother who, i’ve read, has had similar experiences with his stepfather. She must be so ashamed of her son. SHAME ON YOU CHRIS BROWN!!!! SHAME ON YOU!!!
