I won't be surprise if couple days later, rihanna will showing up and tell press that it was not true.
probably, chris brown was so mad to her, because she was cheating, but they already engaged, so chris brown was totally pissed off and rihanna acted all bitchy

gosh, I hate rihanna
she ruined brown's life

Chris Brown did the crime now he should do the time. Men should learn that women are not a punching bag, So keep your damn hands off of them.

I'm shocked, Chris seemed to be so mild mannered. Maybe stardom got the best of him and he just snapped. Looks like another celeb heading for Anger Management classes....go figure.

This is a very unfortunate thing, and I hope that the majority of what I'm hearing is rumors. I hope he didn't beat the hell out of her and I hope she didn't burn him... Thats some trifling stuff. If she burned him, then I can't really blame him for putting his hands on her.... I wouldn't do it personally, but to be given Herpes??? Thats too much right there.

OKAY . . SO, FIRST OF ALL, IM NOT UNDERSTANDING WHY EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE ALL UP IN THE BUSINESS. I MEAN, IT JUST SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE WAS WAITING FOR CHRIS BROWN TO MAKE A BAD MOVE. EVERYONE SAYING HES GONNA LOSE FANS, I DOUBT IT. IF ANYONE IS A NUMBER ONE FAN, LIKE I AM, THEN THIS SHOULD ONLY PUSH THEM TO SUPPORT HIM MORE. NOBODY KNOWS WHAT HAPPEND, RIHANNA COULD'VE STARTED THE FIGHT FOR ALL WE KNOW. NOBODY WILL EVER REALLY KNOW WHAT HAPPEND. WHAT RELATIONSHIP DOESNT HAVE UPS & DOWNS AND PROBLEMS. THEIR TWO 20 YEAR OLD INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE HUMAN LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. SO BASICALLY, RELAXXX .

- CHRIS BROWNS, NUMERO UNO * FAN

Chris Brown is no gentleman. How could he hit a woman like Rihanna? She's pretty, talented, well-built, has money. What more can a man want? It just goes to show you that all the effort a woman puts on makeup, hair, havkng a beautiful body, and making a lot of money still may not satisfy a man. Chris Brown - hitting a female. Doesn't he know that it's not fair to hit a female? Men have an obvious physical advantage. She didn't have a chance with him. Perhaps she should hire a bodyguard, or carry a nightstick or some other kind of protection to make it a fair fight. Chris Brown acted like a boor, cad, caveman, etc. The uncivilized barbarian. He would have to be black. It makes us all look bad. If I was Wrigley, I'd drop his ass in a New York second.

HOW THE HECK DOES A MAN ANY MAN A CELEBRITY GO ABOUT HITTING A WOMAN???????????
man i love you Chris but that was so wrong and stupid, no matter how in your face she is or loud or annoying she is you don't hit her?It wasn't because of the cold sore and apparently she does have a big mouth on that pretty face and trying to reason with him by checking his phone was not a good move but ...........I would hate it to be done to me any woman would!!!!! would you have liked her to do that to you if she had the strength no!!!!! I'm not judging him but man I think he better take breathing time and stay away from her for quite a while if you know what I mean...........BITING HE? I MEAN GET REAL WOULD YOU!

I understand everyones opinions of this matter. There is so much gossip, it is rediculous. Fans of the individuals need to relax. Either or have spoke as of yet. There is information, regarding, she has been hurt. I have eight brothers, in which have been tought to not hit woman, as well as a woman should not hit a man. In regards to gossip, if there is a disease conflict in this situation " yes" on my behalf, I would be in jail. Again "gossip" Herpes is like AIDS. Once you come in contact, It's for life. Anyone who has AAnnyyy, disease is within the system of your county. It is a crime to not inform your spouse spouse of such scenerio, or any other contact to a human being. If this is the case, As a human being " My fiance would have problems. Due the fact, you have been informed by your physician of all cosequences regarding certain diseases. "Again Gossip" if this matter is regarding cheating, "Yes" Chris is completley wrong. This is when you need to leave the situation, wether you are a woman or man. "Again Gossip" Rhianna has an abusive relationship with her brother. This can be within their family of abuse "Don't Know". As well as starting rumors with Jay-Z. You individuals need to stop. Find something to do with your lives. Maybe, If you stop the gossip " communication may be more open.

I left out thug-wannabe to describe Chris Brown. Why do most of these black male entertainers want to portray the rest of us blacks as heathens? Don't we have a hard enough time as it is? Our unemployment has been nearly twice the national rate since forever. Then, the only people white people have to go by if they have had no other contact with blacks are the most barbaric ones. We just can't win for losers like Chris Brown. No wonder no one wants to hire the black male. Who wants to be around rude, uncivilized and ignorant people? I don't blame the white man for not hiring a brother. A brother never had a chance in the first place, and then these idiot, black pimp-wannabes have to put the nail in the coffin. To the rest of society: Blacks are not all heathens, contrary to how some members behave. How embarassing. Chris Brown's a punk, if not now, he will be when he finds his "candy-ass" in jail. or prison Then he'll find plenty of people to hit in there. But, he'll probably think twice about trying to pick on any of his fellow inmates. He'll probably be the one getting bitch-slapped.
