I dnt think that it is right for them to put him in jail and not her. Because you dnt knw what she did to him to make him act the way he did. I'm not saying its right but you have to look at both sides. She should be put in jail to because she had to do something to him to make him flip.

I don't understand why everyone is on Rhianna's side. No one has heard Chris Brown's side of the story. No one knows anything except that we have seen pictures of Rhianna with a bruised face. Heck she could have hit him first or may have done something to really set him off. I really feel sorry for the both of them!! I feel sorry for her because she got hit many times by the looks of things, and for him because he has such a promising future. No man should ever hit a woman, no matter what that woman does, but hey this is reality men hit on women every single day!! Most of the time the woman is stupid enough to go back to the same man that has down whooped her a**!! My girls and I have been talking about this situation since we heard about it, and we just can't understand it. Chris Brown looks like a man that wouldn't never hit on a woman, unless she provoked it some how!! It's a sad situation that all the radio stations and some of his endorsers have stopped playing his music and fired him from their companies. Like the Wrigley's gum commercial, I haven't seen it ever since this happened. I just hope for his sake that he learns his lesson!! Instead of hitting the woman he should have just left her, kicked her out of his ride anything but put his hands on her. Because now it will take some time for him to get his career back on track, and get his endorsers back to believing in him again!!! Good Luck to the Both of Them!!!

Not that i'm condoning domestic violence but every one who is in Chris Brown and Rihanna business, get out of it... Their problems are theirs not not all of you nosey peoples. All of you who are making negative comments are probabaly the main one who has been a victim of domestic violence and some of your probably are women/men beaters. u guys don't want people all in u guys business so shut and find some business that belongs 2 you. I don't care about whats happening with them because its none of my business. I'm sorry that this happened to her but no matter what i'm going to still listen to both of their music.

He's been looking pretty unhappy lately in his pictures with Rihanna. Sort of like he was no longer feeling the relationship. If so, he didn't have to bang her in the face . . . could have just ended it.

A man should never put his hands on a woman. That's a weak move. I hope he loses fans over that. The same issue his parents had and he witness it !!!

Word is that Brown popped her for giving him herpes...which she most likely got from Jay-Z's philandering ass.
