Did Chris Brown Beat Rihanna?

Chris Brown was a wanted man by police until he turned himself in early February 9. Girlfriend Rihanna canceled her scheduled Grammy performance in possible connected circumstances.

Los Angeles police responded to a 911 call at 12:30 February 9 following a report that an argument between Chris Brown and a woman who were together in a vehicle. The report said the couple had gotten violently physical. When police arrived, they found the woman alone -- and injured. The officially-unnamed woman named Brown as her attacker.

Coincidentally, Brown's girlfriend Rihanna canceled her scheduled Grammy performance Sunday after suffering mild facial bruising from what her people are calling a "car accident," although police records don't show she was involved in one in the last few days.

"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," read a statement from The Recording Academy last evening.

Strange that mild facial bruising would cause Rihanna to cancel a Grammy performance when such a slight injury could be easily covered with makeup. Strange, that is, if in fact it was caused by a fender-bender. If it was caused by a battering from her boyfriend, her frayed nerves would certainly be more than enough to warrant escaping the world's spotlight for a bit.

Brown also canceled his Grammy performance by the way.

Rihanna just appeared at Saturday night's 2009 Grammy Salute to Industry Icons honoring Clive Davis.

Update Feb 9, 3 pm PST: LA law enforcement sources have reported that the victim's name on the official police report is Robyn Fenty: Rihanna's real name.

They claim the victim sustained injuries including contusions and bite marks. Brown has turned himself in to police and no statements have been released yet by either his or Rihanna's camps.

and teezy, it does not make him a bad person. he would be a bad person if he does like that do girls on the daily or if he had even done it more than once, but has he? NO. I support him all the way no matter what any of these people say. hes slowly getting his career back

A Person November 17, 2010 | 12:10 AM

yes he made a mistake, all people do. what he did was very wrong. but he got help for it and he also owned up to what he did. Hes only did it once and im sure he wont do it again. there are so many women who go through the same thing every day. why dont we focus onthem instead of rihanna cause she hasnt done to help any domestic violence survivors or ANYTHING. Chris is a very talented artist and he deservs a second chance. and i find it funny how whenever shes promoting her albums she talks about chris just to get publicty.

All of you Chris Brown defenders are ignorant to say the things that you are saying. There is never an excuse for a man to hit a woman like Chris hit that woman. Also, you non-spelling people should spend as much time learning how to spell simple words as you spend supporting that ass-hole...and think again, If you can; That beating was no mistake, it was a deliberate act and it does make him a bad person.

You know what Chris i don't know what all that happens between you and Rhianna don't know one know but you'll and GOD.But i can tell you this people is so easy to judge you when they don't know the hold story but i can tell you this you made a mistake whenyou went on Larry King i would have never went on tv.Cause no matter what people will believe what they want to believe and you have your fans and if they truly your fans they will be there for you no matter what.You got your family and your friends and you have your true fans.

Well all I got to say about all this is every one who is runnin they mouth sayin he this and she that. Man that has nothing to do with any of us leaving comments worry bout ya'll own lives because you all know somebody they let a guy or girl hit them. Life will go own let the court deal with him and stop trying to get him convicted thats their decision in court
