The Truth    

Car Accident?????, Herpes????... NOT!!!
Power 106 in LA reported late last week that Chris Brown was having to much fun with the ladiesoversees and Rihanna found out, and she was blowing up his cell phone. That's most likely why they were fighting in the car. Chris Brown bit her and scratch her face, and ran off like a punk when she called 911. No matter what, you should never put your hands on a women. I guess his mother did not teach him that.

Well Rhianna should not have given Chris herpes and she wouldnt have gotten into a fight with her man. If my man gave me herpes i would prob hurt him. And not on purpose but out of Anger. Some people shouldnt play with others lives. Everyone wants to pick on Chris but dont even know the whole story.

also.....Rhianna may look like an innocent woman...but women can be liars. When they dont get what they want they can make up stories. Sad but true. She is pissed at him...and yes a lot of the comments are true, he made a threat to her and she took it and ran with it. I hope Chris comes out and tells his story. Good Luck

I'm sorry to tell this but Rihanna is the worst thing That's happens to Chris Brown.

If he really did it, she's on her right to tell it to the police but.... Rihanna is not a saint. More she's a insane mind (and i know wht i'm talking about)

Chris lost his control...(but he's not a bobby brown and she's not whitney Houston) And she'll be the poor little victim.

but nobody knows what really happens in this car for this situation to degenerate to this extrem point.

PS: i'm still wondering why he's still staying with her when he can get all the other sexy and talented girls around.

If Chris really did attack Rhianna I hope she considers carefully what her next move is. She is a role model for so many girls and women around the WORLD. It would be a shame if she gave anyone the impression that it is ok for a guy to hit you and get away with it. I it UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!! We have to pray for her to be strong throughout this ordeal and pray for him as well - he needs help.

Word is the woman in question is Rhianna!

I won't judge until more is known but based on what I've read so far, I would say to Chris just end the relationship! Don't lower yourself to the level of attacking a woman.

To Rhianna, if he did hit you unprovoked, I will say leave his ass NOW! Don't be like Tina Turner and take it for years and years (though Tina finally left Ike in the end).

Just another perfect example of a shameless celebrity with too much fame. Except this time it envolves a 'Teeny Bopper' named Chris Brown. The kids a chump, bottom line! You should never put your hands on a woman. Rhianna's to much woman for him, he can't handle her thats the problem. It's pretty evident that 'Ike Jr' has some seriously psychological problems.

Chris Brown Charged in Rihanna Assault

By ANDREW GREINER

Updated 6:49 AM EST, Mon, Feb 9, 2009Brown and long-time girlfriend Rihanna, each nominated and slated to
perform, separately dropped out of the Grammys at the last minute and
their whereabouts were not immediately known Sunday night.

Brown and long-time girlfriend Rihanna, each nominated and slated to
perform, separately dropped out of the Grammys at the last minute.
Brown was arrested over an alleged assault on the pop starlet.

LOS ANGELES” The 2009 Grammy award kicked off with plenty of
drama, but the fireworks had more to do with who wasn't performing
than anything happening on stage.

Just before the event, nominees Chris Brown and Rihanna, each
nominated and slated to perform, separately dropped out of the
program at the last minute. During the show, Brown was being sought
for an alleged assault against Rihanna, his long-time girlfriend.

Brown turned himself in to LAPD late Sunday night after leaving the
scene of the alleged attack before cops arrived, according to the LA
Times.

Police booked Brown on suspicion of making felony criminal threats, a
police department source told the LA Times. Brown posted $50,000 bond,
but police say they may add more charges, including felony assault.

Rihanna's whereabouts are still unknown. The LAPD released a report
saying that an argument broke out between Brown and Rihanna, whose
full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, after a party at record mogul Clive
Davis' house. The two began a heated exchange in their car, then Brown
pulled over and the altercation escalated. A witness called 9-1-1 but
Brown had fled the scene when police arrived.

The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her
attacker, according to police. A publicist for the Barbados-born
star, who sold more digital song downloads than any other in 2008
with nearly 10 million tracks, said Sunday night, "Rihanna is well.
Thank you for your concern and support."

The New York Daily News reports that the couple had been on the rocks
for some time.

"They were arguing. Apparently, Rihanna accused him of checking out
other women at Clive Davis' party," said the industry insider.

"It seems she's taking the steps you'd need to take if you were going
to press charges," added the source. "But she could wake up tomorrow
morning and decide she still loves him."

The pop world's power couple have been dating for more than a year,
and rumors have swirled that they were engaged.

Yet there were rumblings in recent days about troubles, and sources
described the Barbados-born beauty as a clingy girlfriend who can't
bear to have Brown out of her sights.

The drama unfolded behind the scenes when police said just 90 minutes
before the show began that they were investigating the 19-year old
Brown. His performance was subsequently removed from the show, though
it was unclear if he bowed out or was dropped.

Then, minutes before U2 opened the telecast by zipping through its
new single, the Recording Academy said Rihanna had scratched her
performance as well.
