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.

    #101, you are a complete idiot.

  • get well Rihanna

    UPDATE: (10:21P EST): We’re told Chris has been getting prepped by his lawyers for the last few hours. And he has just turned himself in to LAPD.

    UPDATE (9:11p EST): Ok, here’s the low down we got from an extremely credible PR source on the ground at the Grammys. Said source tells TheYBF.com that the “car accident” story is false and is being used to throw everyone off. Rihanna is DEFINITELY the victim of domestic violence and is now pressing charges against her boyfriend Chris Brown as we speak. Early this morning while leaving Clive Davis’ party, the two got into a physical altercation in their limo and he punched Rihanna in the face. We’re told that’s when he/the limo dropped her at Hancock Park in L.A., and she ran and called 911. He left the scene and hasn’t been found since. We’re told Chris has until midnight tonight to turn himself in to LAPD. Otherwise, he will be arrested as soon as he’s spotted by an LAPD officer. We’re told Rihanna is definitely in the hospital recovering as we speak.

    If it is Rihanna i hope she steps up and admits it. For the many victims of physical abuse I hope she brings light against domestic violence and speak up for it.

    “People cannot count on Rihanna, she has canceled concerts and now the grammys? is she turnin into a diva? or what?!”

    ______________________

    Well, what the heck is she supposed to do?? Come wearing a pretty dress to match her bruised face and pretend like everything is a-okay and that she DIDNT just get assaulted by her boyfriend–mostly likely soon to be ex?

  • alicia

    #101, do you even comprehend what you are commenting on? That’s got to be the dumbest response I’ve seen on here yet… If this has happened before, I think Rihanna needs to take some time off to focus on her, fluck the business right now, get yourself right.

  • Usually a lurker

    Chris Brown was booked for 1 count felony assault with a $50,000 bond set.

  • Savannah

    Didn’t chris’s mom get beat up by his dad? And It’s good that he man’d up and turned himself in but if he was a man in the begin with he would have never touched her. I can’t believe him. I don’t care what his story is next. No way will I support him.

  • AKELA

    What the F! i mean i love the guy but that is what a punching bag is for,and U don’t hit a bajan sister like Rihanna now!!!

  • Vannie

    Chris is an ass if he did that.

  • diann

    Okay..Im not tryin to justify anything..if he really beat her up as bad as they say, he needs to pay…but sometimes you can tell a persons character by how they carry themselves and he just doesnt strike me as “a woman beater”…dont u think something had to hve happened in the car for him to go off like he did??!! Is Rihanna cheating??

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    Wow, I really don’t R&B but Chris Brown is pretty okay, or so I thought

  • diann

    Josh Paul…you’re right..that’s him

  • bAJAN_pRINCESS1909

    im not suprised , he has a effin temper , last year he effed up her car back in barbados in aug and now he taking his anger onto her , damn shame his career is on the line as of now… no teeny bopper is gonna want to be a fan of a woman beater …he can kiss that career of his goodbye… hope riri brings her behind home and get better she needs a break from the paps

  • jamie

    the bad thing abt all this is these silly a$$ girl(s) are actually goin to find this $hit attractive…he will now be considered a “thug”…i mean look at bobby brown..they still luv him after all the $hit he did to whitney

  • louisiana lady

    That is so terrible. He’s got a 50,000 bail for assault. This makes me not like him. No one’s perfect but beating up your woman should never happen. It may be based on jealousy. We know Riri wouldn’t even let a fan meet Chris because she has a crush on him. Talk about jealousy.They say Rihanna has bruises on her face. Man, Chris screwed up big time. He beats her up and then flees the sceen. That’s a coward for sure. He’s not a man he’s a BOY. This will hurt his career. Can’t be having any of this Ike and Tina crap going on. Leave him girl. If he hit he once he’ll hit u again. They both have some growing up to do.

  • fai

    THATS WHAT PRINCESS RIRI GETS.!!!!!!! YOU GO CHRIS BROWN!!!!!!

  • jamie

    fai..that’s so terrible to say..don’t ever wish that on anyone…that says a lot about u

  • LADY A

    WOW!!! ITS NOT EVEN HALF WAY THROUGH 09 AND ALREADY WE HAVE THIS HAPPEN. OH WELL I STILL AM A BIG FAN OF BOTH SO WATEVER……………

  • julez

    Riri should dump him ASAP.
    Chris fans should boycott him to teach him some lesson.

  • Shakira

    I hope this was the last day that Rhianna ever sees Chris. EVER. No man should touch a woman in an angry way, ever. There is nothing Rhianna did or said that made Chris raise his hands. He made that decision all by himself and it was the wrong decision to make. Now, Chris has to live with this but Rhianna can carry on fine without him and move on to someone who makes other choices. Rhianna, I hope you dump him for good. There are lots of fine young men out there that will treasure you and never treat you this way.

  • lauren

    i agree #26.
    i mean i loved chris.
    he always said his job was to be a “role model”
    but obviously not, he is two sided ):

  • asdf

    beat that bitch

  • Fiona Griffit

    Could it be that Rihanna has dated with Adam LEvin that’s why Chris was mad like a bull? OR if not, it could be the Diva in Rihanna that tiggered Chris’s anger. Well I am confused too coz someone won’t get hurt without any terrible cause.

  • dude why

    why do yall trip so much about these people’s lives. especially the girls aha, girls are so annoying

  • cracker

  • AManda

    Wow… Some of these posts on here make me sick. I can’t believe some people are actually defending Chris Brown.

    Get real. Celebrities are not perfect. Don’t put them on a pedestal.

    Domestic violence is never okay. I wonder if some of these Chris Brown “fans” would support him if he beat up their sister or their mother like this.

  • bam!

    It’s never ok to hit someone (especially when it’s someone you are supposed to care for & love ie: family members, girlfriends, boyfriends etc) I don’t care if Rihanna was shagging some other guy right infront of Chris Brown’s face in that car, no way should he have hit her. There’s absolutely no excuse for it.

    If this story is all true I hope he actually gets an appropriate punishment for it, not just the usual celebrity cop out when it comes to being sentenced. I don’t care how rich you are, a crime is a crime.

  • ella

    # 9 #7you think it’s funny but it’s the truth…My friend text me this morning at 5:00am her husband got called out to the scene.

    ————

    I BELIEVE YOU! CAUSE I REMEMBER READING YOURE COMMENT THAT JJ JUST REFFERED TO AND THOUGHT… YEAH RIGHT. BY THEN THE NEWS WASNT OUT THERE.

    AND WHEN THE NEWS FINALLY HIT THE MEDIA I COULDNT HELP BUT REMEMBER YOURE COMMENT AND THINK: SHE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH AFTER ALL.

    SO DONT BE BOTHERED BY PEOPLE WHO DONT BELIEVE YOU.
    THEY ONLY HAVE TO LOOK AT THE TIME AND DATE OF YOURE FIRST COMMENT AND NOW THAT AT THAT TIME NO MEDIA WAS INFORMED ABOUT THIS!

    THE REASON I DIDNT WANT TO BELIEVE IT, IS CAUSE CHRIS SEEMS SO NICE. BUT WE CANT JUDGE HIM AND HER. PEOPLE CAN MAKE MISTAKES. I HOPE HE LEARNS FROM THEM.

  • hate

    oh poor CB… lots of people will hate him now.. and he deserves it!! :b

  • http://www.hotmail.com clarineloveydovey

    well,actually rihanna’s publicist Amanda Silverman just told to Enews that …The disturbia singer is well,thankyou for concern and support. Yeay! So i guess she’s now gonna pay off for her before- canceled concert here in Jakarta,Indonesia. In another 3 days! Love her always,Great hair,Great style,Great music. Riri<3 But Chris Brown should get a treatmen for his anger. Though he’s hot as hell;)

  • enoughalready

    I’m sorry, but when the truth comes out people are going to see that Rihanna is not this little innocent chick (mental wise).

    Rihanna is really disturbed, she cant handle a relationship, she is really clingy, she actually believes Chris is her’s and when she saw them pictures of Chris with them other girls she could’nt handle it. There is always 3 sides to a story, mines, yours, and the truth.

    Look how clingy she was in these pictures at Clive’s party, Chris is tired of her and she will not let him go and one thing led to another.

    The young man already has one mother and I really would like to know where these bodyguards?

  • lostatsea

    I should not have read this…

    I just hope this is all not true….

    gosh….

  • Ian

    If this is true, Chris Brown gonna catch it. Them Bajans don’t play. They gonnna whoop his ass for hitting their countrys idol.!

  • synfulone

    It is reported that Rhianna gave Chris Brown Herpes and that is what the altercation is about. I do not condone any type of violence but imagine someone giving you something you can never ever get rid of….your emotions take over and I am sure your initial reaction wont be the best either. So lets not be so quick to judge others….learn to put yourself into other shoes and give an honest assessment.

  • http://www.yahoo.com blondie

    Fake Story:

    An admiring male fan got too close to Mr. Brown’s Lady Love,
    and the male fan accidently punched her, while asking for
    an autograph.

    Well, Mr. Brown automatically punched the fan
    in his head, for accidently punching Mr. Brown’s Lady Love.

    So, you see, the whole thing happened so fast,
    that it was a knee-jerk reflex reaction.

    As Mr. Brown was picking the fan
    from the ground, Mr. Brown mumbled
    that he might get killed, if he ever approached
    his Lady Love with so much excitement again.

    And so the fan called 911
    to report this threat.

    End of Fake Story.

  • sharon

    I don’t usually comment but this story doesn’t make sense. I really think CB was provoked into behaving like this. Ri looks like the man beating type. I think she has assualted him more than once and this time he reacted. I don’t think she is the sweet little girl that she pretends to be.

  • wow

    Blondie

    People are gonna make up so many excuses for this but it happen and that’s it. I did not believe it but a jj reader posted this story on RIRI previous thread comment#20, broke the story 8 hours before the story came out. Look at the time and date for your self.

  • me

    Maybe he just found out she use to be a man!!!!!

  • sHANNON m.

    Chris Brown career is gonna go down the toilet for hitting the most beloved singer Rhianna. I love Rihianna. I am glad she is standing up for herself and pressing charges. At least she isn’t taking it being beat by a man. I wish more woman were like that. Chris Borwn really has some issues. I can’t stand men that beat women and then leave to go hide in a corner. What a freakin coward!!!!!

  • Tony francio

    Sounds like this motherf***er turned from Chris Brown to Bobby Brown!

  • amcreds22

    OMG when i found out i literally couldnt believe it!
    chris brown is number 2 of my all time favorite artists and i jsut cant believe he would go crazy like that
    rihanna doesnt deserve this but i knew chris is a good person so i hope everything gets resolved
    p.s their performances last night would have made the grammys way better

  • Mark

    i believe that chris only defended himself, as rihana verbally assaulted him and he had to put an end to it the only way he knew how, smack that like “akon” said was the first thaught that poppep to mind. Gooooo Chris.
