    CA - Domestic Dispute between Chris Brown & Rihanna - cancels Grammy performance

    Los Angeles police said they plan to detain R&B singer Chris Brown for questioning in connection with an alleged domestic violence assault against his girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

    Brown and Rihanna canceled their performances at tonight's Grammy Awards.
    The incident is being investigated as a felony domestic violence case, police said. It was reported about 12:30 a.m. Sunday in Hancock Park.
    Brown and Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, were apparently in a car together and got into an argument on North June Street, according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement. Brown stopped the car, the two got out, and the argument escalated, according to police.
    A witness called 911, but Brown was gone when officers arrived at the scene. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker, according to police.
    Brown and Rihanna had appeared together Saturday night at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy gala in Beverly Hills.

    WOW - totally shocked by this. If true this will really hurt his career. Not to mention Jay Z would probably kick his ass. I hope Rihanna is okay.

    While there is no excuse for a man to hit a woman I'm going to wait to pass judgement until all the details come out. If they do.

    I don't know what felony criminal threats are? Can someone give me a general idea of what they might be?TIA.

    Like Lizzybeth, I'll wait until there is more information about what happened, if we are given more details.

    As for this impacting Mr. Brown's career, I'm not quite sure it will. Michael J, R. Kelly and others in the music biz have had quite a few brushes with the law. We will have to wait and see.

    1. The accused willfully threatened to unlawfully kill or unlawfully inflict great bodily injury on another person
    2. The accused made the threat with the specific intent that it be taken as a threat
    3. The threat is so unequivocal, unconditional, immediate, and specific as to convey a gravity of purpose and the immediate prospect of execution (the person was very clear and specific about carrying out the threat)
    4. The threat actually caused sustained fear in the victim (for "a period of time that extends beyond what is momentary, fleeting, or transitory")
    5. The sustained fear was reasonable

    On top of this, the woman who was threatened had visible injuries according to news reports, and LE said that the threats were credible in that Brown had the means to carry them out.

    Lovely.

    Thank you believe09. Good lord! I've been perusing the gossip blogs and it has been reported that the unidentified female (which every one of them says is Rihanna) has visible injuries and some have even reported that it required a hospital trip. (speculation about broken facial bones, ex: jaw or nose).

    I'm sure we'll hear many different stories. The last I heard she had a black eye and tried to pass it off originally as a car accident. I'm not sure what is true.

    I'm trying really hard for my dislike of Rhinna and thinking of Chris Brown as a Virginia boy not to cloud my judgement.

    I agree. Fifty Thousand dollars is a pretty high bail.

    YW, Kat

    Felony criminal threats alone can get you 3 years in the pokey, PLUS it is considered a strike in the 3 strikes you are out law. Not Good for a 19/20 year old. I expect there will be much work to plead it down if the reports are reasonably accurate.

    Who ever it is-I hope she is truly OK and realizes that this is not love in anyway shape or form.

    "
    A 911 call may be key in the alleged assault involving R&B performer Chris Brown and singer Rihanna. The call came from a witness who apparently had no idea he or she was stepping into a high-profile celebrity case.
    LAPD sources say the witness, who remains unidentified, did not know entertainers were involved when reporting early Sunday morning that a violent altercation was taking place on a quiet Hancock Park street.
    Detectives are still gathering evidence in the alleged assault and have not yet turned the case over to prosecutors, who will decide whether to file charges against Brown.
    “As of right now, nothing has been presented,” said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office.

    Brown was booked Sunday on suspicion of making criminal threats and was released on $50,000 bail. Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, suffered visible injuries in the alleged altercation."

    Chris Brown has talked of abuse in his past. Here's an article from msnbc.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29105153/

    In a 2007 interview with GIANT magazine, Brown spoke candidly about his family’s history with alleged abuse.

    When he was 11, the R&B star-to-be told his mother that he would go to jail for killing his allegedly abusive stepfather.

    I read the article thank you for the link chicagofa13.

    I think that the old saying the children live what they learn is very true, more true than most of us realize.

    I am sorry that as a child he suffered from those experiences of the abuse of his Mother. I'm sure it terrified him.

    But now he is a man. He is a man and must do as a man does not what he may have learned as a child. If it's true that he assaulted and/or terrorized a woman then he needs to face the consequences and he also needs some therapy IMHO.
