Okey,Rihana gave Chris herpers, but that does not warrant him to beat her up!!!I am against any form of of abuse on women and by the way am a dude.A real man should never hit a woman, not matter how badly 'injured,woundended' physically or emotionally.women are the source of life,hence should be respected no matter the provocation..so Chris u need to check ur anger com.the dudez not even married to her!!anyone feeling me??upset Kenyan.

I believe this whole incident occured because of Jay z. Lemme explain. . .We all know that jay z is messing with rihanna hence beyonce sad love album ( I am/ Sasha Fierce),( no offense beyonce I still love your work). Anyhoo, Jay z did give rihanna herpes and he also made the union between rihanna and chris happen too hence the so unintrested face of chris brown in EVERY pic of he and rihanna at the PRE-GRAMMY show.Well, rihanna broke the news that he would be poopin anti immflamatory medication for the rest of his life Chris brown flipped out probably choking her and furiously stormed out. There you go! Did anyone think it was strange that jay z was first on the scene. HMMMM....

I bet Rhinna is hiding out feverishly writing out the lyrics to her next big hits about violence and not taking it anymore, unless of course she was the one who bailed him out and will take him back, if of course he did it in the first place. Coff.

I think you young people have really bumped your heads. I don't care who you are or what someone says you have NO RIGHT to put your hands on someone unless it's in self defense.

ok chris and rihanna got in a fight while they were in the car. he kicked her out of the car and a witness called 911 and rihanna told the police that chris was her attacker. right away chris got an attorney and his attorney advised that he turn himself in to the police! alot ppl are saying that she deserved wat she got because shes actually a bitch

Hearing this story crushed my heart. Because I was a victum af a Domestic Violence. Chris and Rihanna are such a cute young couple. I adore chris and his music style and to hear something like this is unbelievable. He needs to control himself. Rihanna please don't go back to him. It will be a memory every minute you are with him. You are a beautiful girl and have a wonderful music career. People will look at you as a strong person...Don't look back! A fan of both of you.

No one deserves to be hit! No matter what the situation is. Be a man and walk away! Hey...maybe a new song walk away.
