It is difficult for me to believe that Chris just blew up at Rihanna. There is way more to this story than a simple temper tantrum. I do not condone Chris hitting another woman but we need to give him a chance to hear his side of the story. Rihanna may play more of a role than just the victim here. Lets wait and see.

If you look at the arresting report he is being charged with a Class F Felony. Well these are the crimes that a Class F Felony consists of and the only one I see is the assault with bodily injury. It could be a 25.000 fine or up to 12 and 1/2 years. If you go to the LA Times it says just threats but that has to be a cover up. You can go to LA Sheriff's site and see it all, and he paid bail and has been released

No it doesn't/shouldn't matter if she swung at him first but some of you are acting as if it is only horrible if the man hits a woman. It is equally bad not okay or acceptable for a woman to strike a man either. Remember, Violence is never the answer.
