And the Rumors Are In!

March 5, 2009

So apparently, this whole Chris Brown going Ike Turner on Rihanna (also known as Robyn F.) has led to some divulging of information!

It is reported that Chompers (Brown) may not be the straightest of individuals and the romance between the two of them (him and Rihanna) may be a cover for a secret life. Then again, given the reports of his movements in Trinidad, it may not be so secret.

A source levies allegations that Chris Brown is “a sister” and may be in love with some Trini guy. Also, he’s reported to have spent a great deal of his time in Trinidad with a drag queen.

This sheds a whole new light on the saga, I can only imagine that while pummeling Rihanna, Chompers was yelling, “You think you bad?! I does tek more man dan you! EH! EH! EH!”

Chris Brown Charged with Two Felonies.

March 5, 2009

Wow! All the rumors of reconcile may not be able to stop this snowstorm that’s afoot. According to CNN.com,

(CNN) — The argument that led to singer Chris Brown’s arrest on felony assault charges began when his girlfriend found a text message on his cell phone from “a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with,” according to a sworn police statement.

Chris Brown is charged with felony counts of assault and making criminal threats.

Chris Brown is charged with felony counts of assault and making criminal threats.

Authorities charged Brown on Thursday with felony counts of assault and making criminal threats, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said.

The charges are in connection with an alleged attack last month on “his girlfriend,” the office said.

It identified the woman only as Robyn F., but sources close to the couple have told CNN the alleged victim was singer Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty.

Brown was scheduled to appear in court later Thursday.

Rihanna, 21, was allegedly attacked by Brown on February 8 on a Los Angeles street before the two were to perform at the Grammys.

Brown apologized for the incident last month.

“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired,” the 19-year-old said in a statement released by his spokesman. “I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person.”

A search warrant used by police to obtain cell phone records related to the case included the sworn statement by Los Angeles Police Detective DeShon Andrews in which he detailed what allegedly happened in the early morning hours of February 8. Read the affidavit (PDF)

According to the statement:

“Brown was driving a vehicle with Robyn F. as the front passenger on an unknown street in Los Angeles. Robyn F. picked up Brown’s cellular phone and observed a three-page text message from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with.

“A verbal argument ensued and Brown pulled the vehicle over on an unknown street, reached over Robyn F. with his right hand, opened the car door and attempted to force her out. Brown was unable to force Robyn F. out of the vehicle because she was wearing a seat belt. When he could not force her to exit, he took his right hand and shoved her head against he passenger window of the vehicle, causing an approximate one-inch raised circular contusion.

“Robyn F. turned to face Brown and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. The assault caused Robyn F.’s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle.

“Brown looked at Robyn F. and stated, ‘I’m going to beat the s–t out of you when we get home! You wait and see!'”

The detective said she then used her cell phone to call her personal assistant, Jennifer Rosales, who did not answer.

“Robyn F. pretended to talk to her and stated, ‘I’m on my way home. Make sure the police are there when I get there.’

“After Robyn F. faked the call, Brown looked at her and stated, ‘You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I’m really going to kill you!’

“Brown resumed punching Robyn F. and she interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face. She then bent over at the waist, placing her elbows and face near her lap in [an] attempt to protect her face and head from the barrage of punches being levied upon her by Brown.

“Brown continued to punch Robyn F. on her left arm and hand, causing her to suffer a contusion on her left triceps that was approximately two inches in diameter and numerous contusions on her left hand.

“Robyn F. then attempted to send a text message to her other personal assistant. Brown snatched the cellular telephone out of her hand and threw it out of the window onto an unknown street.

“Brown continued driving and Robyn F. observed his cellular telephone sitting in his lap. She picked up the cellular telephone with her left hand and before she could make a call he placed her in a head lock with his right hand and continued to drive the vehicle with his left hand.

“Brown pulled Robyn F. close to him and bit her on her left ear. She was able to feel the vehicle swerving from right to left as Brown sped away. He stopped the vehicle … and Robyn F. turned off the car, removed the key from the ignition and sat on it.

“Brown did not know what she did with the key and began punching her in the face and arms. He then placed her in a head lock positioning the front of her throat between his bicep and forearm. Brown began applying pressure to Robyn F.’s left and right carotid arteries, causing her to be unable to breathe and she began to lose consciousness.

“She reached up with her left hand and began attempting to gouge his eyes in an attempt to free herself. Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers and then released her. While Brown continued to punch her, she turned around and placed her back against the passenger door. She brought her knees to her chest, placed her feet against Brown’s body and began pushing him away. Brown continued to punch her on the legs and feet, causing several contusions.

“Robyn F. began screaming for help and Brown exited the vehicle and walked away. A resident in the neighborhood heard Robyn F.’s plea for help and called 911, causing a police response. An investigation was conducted and Robyn F. was issued a Domestic Violence Emergency Protective Order.”

Is Rihanna Pregnant?

March 3, 2009

So… this is interesting.

According to Celebtv.com via their Youtube account, Rihanna MAY indeed be preggers for Chris Brown and ‘friends’ are speculating that may have had something to do with the alleged assault that transpired last month that had everyone’s tongues wagging. Clip below:

Am I the only one that thinks this or did Miss Kelli Zink look like a permanently started  cheetah-human hybrid? I’m just saying it’s kind of distracting.

Oh back to the actual report. Um… abortions don’t cost that much, and she’s loaded. And now that I’m on the subject, I might as well air my prejudice. Why is it that the black couples ALWAYS have some drama surrounding them? It’s times like these I admire Denzel and Mrs. Washington and to a lesser extent Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Married, happy, settled, somewhat normal. No drama. Not that marriage is the great equalizer but I mean, they are a normal group of people.
And another thing, why is it ALWAYS domestic violence? Rihanna, Robin Givens, Tina Turner, even Halle Berry (to a lesser extent). It’s depressing.

Sigh.


Rihanna and Chris Brown Reconciled

February 28, 2009

I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around this one. So I woke up and on Facebook one of my contacts had up something about Rihanna in his status message.  So I followed the link to TMZ and was flabbergasted to read it.

Rihanna and Chris Brown — Back Together!

What is she thinking?!

The story just broke on People.com and TMZ has confirmed, the couple has reconciled and they are “together.” According to the report, the two are hanging at one of Diddy’s homes.

The L.A. County D.A. is expected to get the case from cops soon and then decide whether to charge Brown for the alleged beating earlier this month.

Battered Wife Syndrome. She is far too young and supposed to be surrounded by too many positive influences to be going down this road. It saddens me that she left Barbados, became a megastar, got her ass beaten alongside the road like some common whore and then goes back with the guy that burst her head. I hold my tongue no more. I have lost nearly all respect for both parties in this situation. Love isn’t abuse, beating, fighting or assault.

Nuff Said.


Chris Brown Beat Rihanna

February 11, 2009

So, word is almost official (not that anyone left room for speculation) that it was indeed Rihanna who was the earlier reported “unidentified female” in the alleged Chris Brown assault investigation.

This is no laughing matter, it is very distressing that two up and coming young, black entertainers (well blackish) have become center of attention for such a horrendous  reason. I would like to take this opportunity to express both concern and shame for this situation and hope other people learn from this situation and follow the advice of persons who know better. (Read between the lines, some of you know what and who I’m talking about).

Here’s the story from Yahoo News through E! Online:

Rihanna to cops: Chris Brown Threatened To Kill Me.

E! Online – Rihanna to Cops: Chris Brown Threatened to Kill Me(E! Online)

Los Angeles (E! Online) – Earlier today, the Los Angeles District Attorney asked police detectives to dig up more evidence for their case against Chris Brown.

The police are getting cooperation from Rihanna, and what she has told them so far is chilling.

A source close to the investigation tells E! News exclusively that Rihanna has alleged to police that Brown choked her while threatening to kill her and, subsequently, she lost consciousness.

They began squabbling after leaving Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party late Saturday. Shortly after midnight, things blew up. Brown pulled his silver Lambourghini to the side of a street in L.A.’s Hancock Park neighborhood. That’s when, per the source, Rihanna grabbed the car keys and tossed them out the window, sending Brown into a rage.

He tried in vain to find the keys, then came back to the car, put his hands around her neck and, according to the insider, said, “I’m going to kill you!”

The 20-year-old “Disturbia” singer told police that she lost consciousness, the source says, and when she awoke, Brown had fled.

According to the source, her right eye was blackened and badly swollen and she had hand prints on her arms. The responding officers were so concerned about her, they drove Rihanna to the hospital in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance.

Officers took two sets of photographs of the banged-up singer, one at the scene and the second after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment. Those photos were presumably among the evidence presented to the D.A.

After being treated for her injuries, police escorted her down a rear elevator and into a waiting Mercedes, the source says.

Brown, 19, was subsequently booked on suspicion of making criminal threats. He was released after posting $50,000 bail.

His lawyer, Mark Geragos, has not responded to repeated requests for comment on the allegations. Brown’s publicist also has not commented.

A spokeswoman for Rihanna declined to comment specifically on details of the fight and the arrest and stuck to her earlier statement from Sunday: “Rihanna is well. Thank you for concern and support.”

So aaaaaanywho I found this highly inappropriate video on youtube with their unique take on the fight. I have my own reasons and issues with it but I still think it’s funny.


Chris Brown wanted on alleged assault of a female.

February 9, 2009

Okay so for those of you who already heard the rumors of what went down in Barbados back in 2008, this may sound a little familiar, what with Chris Brown, a female compatriot, a car and an assault, so I’ll just skip that prior scenario and get into this current one.

According to The Insider:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say they’re investigating an alleged domestic violence felony battery report involving Chris Brown.

The police department says in a release the 19-year-old R&B singer and a woman were in a vehicle in the Hancock Park neighborhood early Sunday when they began arguing.

Police say Brown and the woman got out of the car and the argument escalated.

Police say the woman identified Brown as her attacker. Officers say Brown wasn’t at the scene.

A message left for Brown’s representative seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned.

Note the omission of the other party in question, believed to be Rihanna who was missing from the Grammy Awards Show 2009 after being involved in a ‘car accident’.

However The Insider in another article available online states:

In what may or may not be related news, “The Insider” confirms that pop singer Rihanna will not be performing at tonight’s Grammys following sustaining a bruised face in what sources called a car accident.

Coincidentally, Rihanna’s rumored boyfriend Chris Brown is under investigation for alleged domestic violence felony battery related to an alleged attack on a woman who he had been riding in a car with that sustained what police call “visible injuries.”

Sources at the Grammys tell “The Insider” that Rihanna’s face is slightly bruised and no announcement has been made as to who will be taking her place on stage. “We have just been informed that Rihanna will not be attending tonight’s 51st Annual Grammy Awards. We’re sorry she is unable to join us this evening,” The Recording Academy’s statement reads.

Related to the Brown investigation, police say Brown and the woman were in a vehicle in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles when, following an argument, the woman was allegedly injured, naming Brown as her attacker. When police arrived, they only found the woman; Brown had left. The Associated Press reported Sunday afternoon that police were still looking for the male R&B star.

Police say they received a 911 call related to the incident which occurred around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday. The LAPD is investigating the incident.

Rihanna and Brown were just photographed together at a Pre-Grammy party on Saturday night. Keep checking “The Insider” for more on this developing story.

This would be the biggest celebrity pop scandal for 2009 to date. With a new album in the works to promote, it keeps her name buzzing. You know what they say, there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

Of course we hope this is a misunderstanding, however reality being what it is… one never knows the true personalities of one’s celebidols and we really shouldn’t be quick to jump to conclusions until more details become available.

***Update***
So Access Hollywood is speaking definitively on the matter:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. —

Chris Brown has been charged with felony battery after an alleged violent incident on Saturday night, Access Hollywood has learned.

Earlier on Sunday, the LAPD was investigating Brown for assault following an alleged domestic violence felony battery against a woman reported to be the singer’s girlfriend, Rihanna, at 12:30 AM on Sunday in Los Angeles. Both Brown and Rihanna pulled out of Sunday evening’s Grammy Awards before the ceremony.

Brown turned himself in on Sunday evening, the LAPD confirmed to Access.

“At around 6:30 PM on February 8, 2009 R&B entertainer Chris Brown turned himself in to authorities at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Division,” the LAPD said in a statement to Access. “Detectives investigating the alleged domestic violence felony battery booked him for criminal threats.”

According to his booking sheet, Brown was being held on a $50,000 bail under a felony charge. He has since been released.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the victim of the alleged assault was Rihanna, though the LAPD would not confirm that report.

“At the time the case is presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, additional charges may be filed. It will be up the LA County DA to review the case and determine which charge or charges will be most appropriate,” the LAPD noted.

Earlier, the LAPD confirmed to Access that the R&B singer and an undisclosed woman were in a vehicle on North June St. in the Hancock Park area of LA, where the victim claims an argument occurred. Brown allegedly stopped the car and the woman suffered “visible injuries” and identified the singer as her attacker.

“Mr. Brown is a suspect that we are looking for… we would definitely like to speak with him,” a spokesperson for the LAPD told Access on Sunday evening.

When contacted by Access on Sunday night, a rep for Rihanna said that the singer was “well.”

“Rihanna is well. Thank you for concern and support,” the rep said.

A rep for Chris Brown did not return calls from Access.

“We have just been informed that Rihanna will not be attending tonight’s 51st Annual Grammy Awards,” a Grammy rep confirmed to Access late Sunday afternoon. “We’re sorry she is unable to join us this evening.”

The rep issued a similar statement regarding Brown later in the evening.

“We have just been informed that Chris Brown will not be attending tonight’s 51st Annual Grammy Awards. We’re sorry he is unable to join us this evening,” the rep told Access.

On Saturday evening, the music couple walked the red carpet separately at the Grammy Salute to Industry Icons honoring Clive Davis at the Beverly Hilton, and they were later spotted smiling together inside the party.

Rihanna was set to perform and was nominated for three Grammys, while Brown was up for two awards at the ceremony.
