Did Brown Threaten To Kill?

Chris Brown threatened to kill Rihanna and choked her until she lost consciousness, according to recently filed LAPD reports.

Chris Brown earlier in his fateful evening with RihannaSources close to the investigation say the couple, who appeared lovey-dovey at a pre-Grammy party only hours before, began arguing over a text message Brown received from another woman.

Some publications are reporting this other woman is no other than Paris Hilton.

The argument escalated when Rihanna grabbed the keys to Brown's rented Lamborghini and tossed them out the window. Brown tried to find them, and when he couldn't, he became shockingly violent.

Police sources say Brown punched Rihanna so hard that her eyes were nearly swollen shut. She also said he choked her until she lost consciousness while telling her he was going to kill her. By the time she awoke, he had fled the scene.

A witness to the horrific event called police. To all the Chris Brown fans who are saying he could not have possibly done this because you think he's cute and you like his music, police have a witness who saw Brown do it.

(Of course, all are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.)

Police say Rihanna was so badly injured that the immediately drove her to a local hospital in their squad car, rather than wait for an ambulance to arrive.

Photos circulated around the internet today purporting to show Rihanna's injuries, but have since been debunked as a cruel Photoshop effort.

Meantime, Brown's career is already flushed down the drain. Radio stations quickly pulled Brown's songs from their playlists, and companies with whom Brown enjoyed sponsorships are dropping his contracts, including Wrigley's gum and the Got Milk campaign.

"The Milk Mustache campaign is taking the allegations against Chris Brown very seriously," says the group in a statement. "We are very proud and protective of the image of the Milk Mustache campaign and the responsible message it sends to teens. Mr. Brown's ad was launched last fall and is scheduled to end this week."

Kanye West spoke of his concern for friend Rihanna on Ryan Seacrest's radio show.

"I don't want to speak too much on it, but I was completely devastated by the concept of what I heard," he says. "Rihanna has the potential to be, you know, the greatest artist of all time and, in that sense, I feel like she is my baby sis. I would do any and everything to help her in any situation."

i think its an outrage that this girl had to go through this. just because chris brown is a celebrity doesnt make him any better than the next male abuser livin anywhere. If his career ends because of this oh well! He should have thought about it before he decided to strike this lady. Me personally, I am no longer a fan of chris brown whom music i loved so much. I feel like he not only wounded rihanna but me as well. Any man who will hit a woman is a cowart in my eyes and love songs created that is telling how he feels about a woman is all lies and fake from the beginning.

Actually, Andrea, if your boyfriend beat the crap out of you, strangled you until you lost consciousness and threatened to kill you, it makes no difference whether or not either of you were on the job, or what you may have done to provoke him: it is a felony, and you would be a victim. The way people are excusing this is sickening.

i think if a young man was that angry there was a good reason and his carreer should not be so easily dismissed because of something that happened in his personal affair. it always takes two even though he has no right to put his hands on rihanna. i would still buy his music and watch his videos. if i had a fight with someone at home or in my car no one would care. as long as i was not on the job. it is no ones business but him and rihanna. they are both so young and alot of stalking concerns were out about rihanna and chris. the man must have needed his space.
