Heartbreaking details of Brown’s attack on Rihanna; Brown expected in court

jingle bash show2 171208
RadarOnline has supposed details of the police report on Chris Brown’s attack on Rihanna. Unfortunately it sounds like all the stories we’ve been reading about the horrific abuse she suffered were true. Brown lost his temper, and he didn’t just hit Rihanna, he smashed her face against the window, punched her, bit her ear, and told her he was going to kill her:

*Rihanna read a three-page text message on Brown’s phone from a woman.

*An argument followed. Brown allegedly tried to force Rihanna out of the car.

*Brown then allegedly shoved Rihanna’s head against the passenger window. Brown punched her, then continued punching Rihanna while driving.

*Blood splattered all over Rihanna’s clothing and in the interior of the car. Her mouth was filled with blood. Brown allegedly told Rihanna, “I’m going to beat the **** out of you when we get home. You wait and see.”

*Rihanna called her assistant and left a message saying, “I am on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there.” Brown allegedly then replied, “You just did the stupidest thing ever. I’m going to kill you.”

*The report also says Brown punched Rihanna, bit her on her ear, her fingers and put her in a headlock.

[From Radaronline]

As MSat reported earlier today, Rihanna is also said to have told police that she was beaten in the past and that it increasingly became worse. It is unknown whether she will cooperate with the prosecution in the case against Brown, particularly since they are back together. Star Magazine is running a cover story that Rihanna and Chris got married in Miami, but let’s hope that’s just the same false crap they always spin and that there’s no truth to that story.

Chris Brown is due to be arraigned today, and it is thought that he will show up at the courthouse sometime in the afternoon. TMZ has a live camera feed from the LA couunty courthouse and the media are there waiting to see when Chris will show up. It looks like the DA has enough evidence to charge him with felony domestic battery.

In related news there’s a new Rihanna Cover Girl Ad out that seems very poorly timed.

    I’m an old, biblical, eye for an eye kinda girl. When he inevitably goes to jail, I can’t wait for his roommate to welcome him with some fist action. And to be honest, I hope the fisting isn’t all for Chris’ face…

    Sick misogynist bastard.

  2. sissoucat says:

    mae: don’t you wish that on him, maybe he likes it, like it’s rumored about his friend Sean Combs. We wouldn’t want to wish him pleasure, would we ?

    No offense meant to kinky sex lovers, of course – I’m not equating them with those two woman-haters.

  3. Blah blah blah says:

    It’s really aggravating that she’s still with him.

    She has her future, her career, and her well-being to think about. She could do so much better than this ugly, worthless, abusive douchebag.

    There’s the possibility that by being stupid enough to stay with him, she could hurt her own career, as well as help keep his from dying since people will see that he hasn’t been totally shunned. There’s also the unfortunate likelihood that it could impact how severely punished he is in court, because how are they supposed to take this seriously if she’s still with him?

  4. photo jojo says:

    That is absolutely horrible.

  5. Samantha says:

    It is the Police Department and DAs job to press charges and make sure justice is served, even when the woman refuses to press charges or leave the man. Battered Wife Syndrome is serious, and its happened too much in the past where the woman refused to do anything about it and ended up dead. So lets hope that just like any other man in this situation, they prosecute him to the fullest extent in the law. And lets also hope his time away gives Rihanna a chance to see things clearly.

  6. Samantha says:

    Also, according to TMZ…

    he L.A. County District Attorney has just charged Chris Brown with felony assault and making criminal threats, also a felony.

    The charging documents name “Robyn F.” as the alleged victim.

    Brown will be arraigned today at 3:30 PM in downtown LA.

    A spokesperson for the D.A. tells TMZ he could face a maximum of four years and eight months in prison.

    I hope this is true.

    I really don’t think Rihanna is quite grasping the consequences of her actions in all of this too but that’s to be expected of a woman in an abusive relationship. Her head is on backwards because of this man and their dysfunctional relationship. Her people should know this and, at the very least, be driving the point home with her insofar as how her going back to him will impact her career because she’s about to throw it all away.

    If she goes back and when he tunes her piano again (because he will) the public outpouring of support isn’t going to be there. A great many people who don’t understand the cycle and pattern of abusive relationships will think “how sad, that lovely young woman has no self-respect. If she doesn’t care about herself, why should I?” Meanwhile, we may have 5 more episodes of this. It takes on average 6 attempts by a battered woman before she leaves.

    I’d like to know the statistics of the number of women who die before they get to see a sixth time.

  8. Annie says:

    I’m willing to say the statistics aren’t good Baho.

    It’s a shame that these kind of things occur in “civilized” societies.

  9. FF says:

    Considering the abuser track record for pushing fast and hard for total commitment from the abused party, as terrifying as it sounds, marriage is a disturbing likelihood.

    And how she is now, she wouldn’t say no. And he might just push for it to show a ‘united’ front. Particularly if he identifies her as being the source of his woes (and when that attempt fails to sway anyone, she’ll be the source of all his woes all over again).

    Aren’t you less protected as a spouse? Plus, certain types equate marriage with ownership – none of that messy free will independence connotes.

    I’m less aggravated that she went back given that all evidence seems to point to her tolerating escalating abuse because he’s well and truly got his hooks into her, this just proves it (i.e. she really, really thinks she’s nothing without him) – and far more worried that this is going to end with him killing her.

    The whole ‘it’s all over the papers he’d be a dumbass to try anything’ argument holds less weight than a feather in zero-g – this is a man that hit a high profile singer – if not one of THE highest profile singers in the US at the moment – right before they were both scheduled to appear at the Grammy’s, no less. Observe that what ‘makes sense’ or is the smart choice no longer applies, and observe that considering the initial (reported) incident how he’s hanging on to his temper by his fingernails, even now.

    For all those people saying she should have left, the way she is psychologically now, if she was dragged kicking and screaming away from him it’s quite likely that *even if* she didn’t stay fixated on and sympathetic to him the entire time, she would end up hooking up with someone else of an identical type, who likely would also be an abuser.

    She needs to break from him psychologically for this to be all over. No go until that happens. That’s why the abused keep going back because they’re never convinced in their own minds that it’s not actually their fault. It takes all those times (depending how enmeshed you are) to realise that you’re not somehow deserving of the crap that’s being dished your way.

    I’m only worried that she won’t have that kind of time.

  10. Michele says:

    “…he didn’t just hit Rihanna, he smashed her face against the window, punched her, bit her ear, and told her he was going to kill her”

    And she went back to him willingly. All respect and sympathy for her is out the window… there are countless victims of domestic abuse out there who lack the means to break free of the cycle (money, people who support and care about their well-being… Rihanna has all of that and then some). She is foolishly taking her own life for granted. Contrary to popular belief, things CAN progress to the point where it’s too late to ask for help.

    Not only that, but it sends a horrible message to impressionable people who look up to her: that it’s okay to perpetuate an abuse relationship, because even though he smacks me around, he says he loves me. The saying “love conquers all” is fallacy and should not be taken at face value.

  11. Michele says:

    That should read abusive relationship. It’s time for a post-lunch coffee break.

  12. Ter says:

    I don’t care to see their faces again as I am not on board the crazy train. The nation didn’t know much about what was going on inside the marriage of Ike and Tina Turner but we are now privy to the brutality between these two. I will never buy anything they are selling and will walk out of the room or change channels if they are on TV. Their relationship should not be condoned in any way shape or form because it is one of deep, deep sickness. And Diddy Ugly Combs should crawl under a rock and die from lack of judgement in aiding and abetting these two.

  13. FF says:

    I think the message that it should send to young women out there – if they’re willing to observe it – is that the psychological underpinnings that come with Intimate Abuse are so subtle and insidious that even smart, financially independent, beautiful women who are on top of the world can fall prey to it.

    In fact, it’s women that usually think they’re too smart or have too much respect for themselves to put up with that bullcrap that can’t call it what it is when it happens, if even just because of the humiliation it triggers in their minds. Because clearly, they’re not ‘one of those women’.

    Go figure.

    See it how you want but I still think there’s a lot to learn here if you can come down off the high horse you may, or may not be riding can’t let you see it.

    If anything it’s that the ‘but she was that stupid type, she should know better’ mental distancing that doesn’t seem to do more than give the person saying it an emotional escape route out of having to give a crap.

    Whatever thoughts might be going on in her head right now – and don’t doubt that she might fight anyone trying to help her – she’s still a young woman worthy of help. Could be anyone that lets the fatal thinking of of unworth seep in – you seriously want to tell me that no one’s ever been caught at a low ebb thinking they’re a waste of space. Usually that only lasts a second or two for most people.

    Now imagine you’ve got someone waiting for you to think that so they can encourage that thinking again and again, for longer and longer, until you believe it, until it’s as if that’s all you’ve ever known about yourself. Then throw on some beatings to encourage the shame and humiliation of not being able to defend yourself physically plus that feeling you’re not worth anything.

    Then multiply it by a year.

  14. Mairead says:

    Is it wrong that the main thing that caught me eye was the 3-page text? Could you imagine – 3 pages of sl*tty illiterate txt-spk.

    I’d lose my temper with him for not having the manners of running around with someone who can at least spell “you”.

    I’ve said elsewhere that there were rumours of Rhianna almost facing bankruptcy last year – so perhaps she’s not that financially independent after all?

    As for the marriage… god, you can almost hear the conversations can’t you? Itll be either:
    “I’m so sorry (I got caught).. blah blah… you’re my world (because grooming someone else would take too long)… blah blah… I’ll prove it – let’s get married, right here right now. I want to get married to prove how much i love you. You don’t want to get married? That means you don’t love me! etc. until it I’m doing my best for you and you throw it in my face….”

    Or – “Prove you’re sorry and that you love me. Marry me now… ad nauseum”


  15. hmm says:

    Her management should have whisked her away immediately and prevented him from contacting her for a long time, not just the 5 days in the restraining order placed on him after arrest. There is another police report which indicates that the abuse has gotten progressively worse over the course of their relationship (typical) and I wish that someone in her camp was capable of removing her from this situation. On the Us site, her father indicated that she has changed her phone numbers and email addresses and that the family is incapable of reaching her. So, Chris’ camp has successfully isolated her and she is now in the custody of her abuser and his hangers-on (also typical of the abusive pattern). It’s sad for her because her reputation has been damaged by going back to him. She projects an image of a fun, fearless woman and it doesn’t jibe with the reality that she is a domestic violence victim who remains with her abuser. I hope for her sake that someone in her camp can remove her from his sphere of influence before it is too late. I also wish that some entertainer had the guts to call out Brown for his cowardly behavior but that hasn’t happened. Instead we’ve been hearing daily by people like Will Smith, Oprah, Whoopi, and others about what a nice guy Chris is and it is thoroughly disgusting. What a sad commentary that because he’s successful he somehow gets a pass and it’s too bad that Rihanna’s well being isn’t as important as Brown being able to release his mediocre music and movies.

  16. Sara says:

    Apparently, he also punched her senseless and brainless because there’s no way she’s thinking clearly.

  17. LDB says:

    My guess here is, this isn’t the first person who has abused her.

    Very sad.

  18. anonymous says:

    FF: You’re so right. I was in an emotionally abusive relationship for about 5 yrs. It progressed to the point where I would apologize to him when he cheated on me, I felt so worthless by the end of it.

    I look back and think WTF??

    I can also totally see how or why a woman would return to a physical abuser, because it probably progressed from emotional abuse, to light physical abuse, to this. I am so sad for Rhianna right now, she doesn’t know how much she is loved.

  19. Carrie says:

    @Sara – totally agree. When you read the account of the attack you have to ask Dr Phil-style “what the hell was she thinking?” taking that piece of crap back into her life. It’s not like she’s a victim who goes back because she needs the abuser’s paycheck to feed her kids. I’ve come to the conclusion she’s just one dumb b**tch.

  20. sissoucat says:

    FF: keep on your comments – I love them.

    And there’s no need to punch a woman to make her constantly think she’s a waste of space… I know of a woman, 2 kids, controlling husband, that thought she might as well commit suicide so that the kids would get rid of her since she was a hopelessly unworthy mother, and get to keep their perfect father as sole caregiver and rolemodel. She was shortly afterwards diagnosed with depression and medicated, so she’s still alive today.

  21. allison says:

    What the hell!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!? what a sick, terrible excuse for a person. how could RIHANNA be with such a terrible guy?!?!

  22. SixxKitty says:

    I’m stunned that she would globally say to all women thats its OK to be abused. I’ll never listen to another one of her tracks.

  23. Shay says:

    Until she gets a backbone and stands up for herself I could care less.

  24. Aspen says:

    Also, if she marries him, she can’t be compelled to testify against him for ANY crime.

    Another reason to worry about her deciding to do that.

  25. ray know says:

    rhianna said chris brown did not attack here it was someone else

  26. ray know says:

    rhianna said chris brown did not attack here it was someone else. Now she realizes it was another guy and she is going to testify it was not him so he can’t be charged with JACK!!

  27. DD says:

    I find this story less heartbreaking knowing they already together again. The guy beats her up as if she’s a dude and tries to kill her, because she caught him cheating and then she goes back with him to fix his image. Lovely.

    I wonder if there is any blackmail going on here, I find it really hard to believe that someone with as much power and resources as her feels the need to go back to a violent, senseless, unfaithful woman beater.

  28. Mairead says:

    “ray know”… seriously, sweetheart… you must be writing that as the lamest joke in Christendom or you’ve been sticking your fingers in your ears and sqeezing your eyes shut for the past fortnight.

    Chris admitted that he beat “here” (HER, child, it’s spelt her!) by his lame apology.

    And even if the Chris Brown Fanclub fairytale was true – what young man, that grew up poor, would trust another bloke to drive their Maserati home after the Golden Globes – with or without their hot girlfriend in it? It’s just not that logical.
    Or is the excuse that she regained consciousness long enough to find her way to his car, put her down around in a manner consistent with being beaten in the car and then prompty passed out again?

  29. Sara says:

    @LDB: Sadly, I must concur.

    @Kitty: I hadn’t thought of that. Wow, whole new perspective right there. Very sad.
