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.

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

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

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

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.

This dude’s career is over!

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

So Chris Brown beat up Rihanna??

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.

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

idiots.. t

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 …

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

This is just plain sad.

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

Alexkziel @ 02/08/2009 at 7:59 pm

Aww poor Ri, i hope she is ok

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 **** about him, on the contrary he got into **** with his ***** of a mother who wants his money because she was talking **** about his wife. You could tell from those grammy pics that rihanna was sad, look at her eyes, you could tell.

vanessajonas @ 02/08/2009 at 8:01 pm

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=)

That’s a pretty big generalisation #40.

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

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

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.

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.

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


Obviously something happened since they can’t find him.

Rhi_Rhi_girl @ 02/08/2009 at 8:10 pm

#40 You are ignorant, stubborn and rude.
