Chris Brown Investigated For Assault

Chris Brown Investigated For Assault

Chris Brown is being investigated by the LAPD for an alleged assault on a female.

“The identity of the victim will not be released,” Officer April Harding tells People. “Any victim who’s involved in a domestic violence incident is entitled to confidentiality.”

Around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, Chris and an unnamed woman were arguing inside of a vehicle when suddenly things turned violent. According to TMZ, the woman suffered visible injuries and identified Chris as her attacker.

The LAPD say they received a 911 call reporting the disturbance. “If police locate Brown, yes, he’s subject to arrest,” Officer Harding added.

Earlier Saturday night, Chris and girlfriend Rihanna were at the Clive Davis pre-Grammy Gala in Beverly Hills. Rihanna‘s rep says, “Rihanna is well. Thank you for concern and support.”

On Sunday afternoon, one JJ reader had this report about the disturbance.

Both Chris and Rihanna were supposed to hit the red carpet and perform at the Grammys. Both will not be in attendance tonight. A Grammy rep says Rihanna‘s face is slightly bruised and adds, “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.”

UPDATE: Chris Brown has turned himself into the cops.

  • kim

  • :(

    She called me a few minutes ago Chris Browns left his car there and they found a joint in the car. He sent his friends back to go and pick up the car but of course the police did not let them. She said that she was beat up really bad.

  • brody

    Damn!! Always knew Chris Brown was a tosser.

  • sara

    #16….if Rhianna got beat this morning she is supposed to show up for an award show? I mean come on!

  • hrhkat

    It is indeed rihanna, she is/was as cedars….apparently he fled the scene and left the car with her inside…

  • evelyn

    #11 – totally agree with you!! domestic violence is horrible … if it is true and Chris Brown hit Rihanna (or some other woman) then he needs to do some time … there is never a reason for violence like that.

  • anon

    i dont know. i feel that i dont want to believe this because it doesn’t sound like something Chris would do. i mean, he’s talked about how his old girlfriend cheated on him in the past and i just don’t think that he’d treat girls this way after that. i don’t know what to believe. =/

  • Rhi_Rhi_girl

    This is so weird, but then again most celebrities have two sides.

  • evelyn

    i’m in absolute shock … i guess sometimes what you see that looks picture perfect might not be so at all …

  • Krebs

    A woman was injured and he fled the scene?
    What a coward!

  • ebmo

    2009 barely began and all this losers are all over from Brown,A-Rod,Bale,Phelps and many in Hollywood including the tax cheaters of OBummer.

  • boom

    This dude’s career is over!

  • nysro

    You know she’ll just be back with him in a week or 2 .. and making excuses as why this happened…

  • hello

    So Chris Brown beat up Rihanna??

  • Janelle

    This is the strangest story. I wonder who was hit. I love Chris Brown. It’s sad if he is a beater. If it is I lost all respect for him.

  • nysro

    #29 dont put Phelps in smae category as some asshole who beats his woman up.. smoking pot is NO WHERE near the same…

    idiots.. t

  • evelyn

    ET was saying Rihanna was in a car accident …. i’m not buying that story … i think that is what Rihanna’s rep told ET , but i mean, come on, i’m an insurance adjuster and when someone is in a car accident and injured a police report is filed about the CAR ACCIDENT … i don’t see any evidence of a car accident presented yet … i think that is Rihanna’s reps story …

  • dare21

    omg i cant believe this i love him and i hope he is ok.

  • CoolCatty

    This is just plain sad.

  • WOW

    Must be true!!!! read comment #20 on previous Rhianna thread

  • Alexkziel

    Aww poor Ri, i hope she is ok

  • Beth

    Oh hes a douchebag, guys common yes he is, am black, and let me say this, thats why i hardly date black men, their mentality is totally messed up trust me. They are so violent and rage filled, i dont know were this comes from. You cant compare this to christian bale, you have never heard his wife talk shit about him, on the contrary he got into shit with his whore of a mother who wants his money because she was talking shit about his wife. You could tell from those grammy pics that rihanna was sad, look at her eyes, you could tell.

  • vanessajonas

    yes i saw the comment of the jj reader… i cant believe it i mean i saw this in the red carpet and i was like wtf? this has to be a joke=)

  • Um…

    That’s a pretty big generalisation #40.

  • mike

    to :( i wasnt talking about you specifically an dont think his career is over…we dont even know what happened completely yet…to be honest i dont even really care lol

  • daisy

    wow!!..omg..thats realy deep especially if its rihanna he hurt..but if she had nothing 2 do with it, y wudnt she b perfoming..neways we ll see

  • Kia

    Beth-wow you are steryeotyping. There are plenty of black men who would never harm a woman. I agree that Chris is an idiot if he did this but sadly, there’s punks in every race. Don’t be ignorant.

  • hrhkat

    my sister is a nurse at cedars and its a huge deal that rihanna was there…only a few people saw her because she had tons of people around her, but she went through the back door, and im told the emergency room was totally full, and they let her in before others. Her injuries are not life threatening, but she has cratches all over her, and is pretty beat up.

  • Rebecca bienstock

    I work at Us Weekly magazine and am trying to reach out to the people who commented in #20 and #74 for more info on this story. Please send me an email at


  • Andy

    Obviously something happened since they can’t find him.

  • Rhi_Rhi_girl

    #40 You are ignorant, stubborn and rude.
