#46 - actually those photogs probably just got released from another Country - if you catch my meaning. It's probably challenging to ask intelligent questions in a language they're only remotely familiar with.

Never judge a book by it's cover. The reason why things like this get exposed to the public randomly is because God is trying to show people that all the glam, hype, a image people portray is not what it really looks like. It is not what it seems. No one really knows what goes on behind closed doors, and now it is exposed. Sad story,

Didn't she have visible bruising when the officers arrived? That is not a threat, that's doing physical harm and my god, just threatening someone does not constitute domestic violence, felony battery charges and $50,000 bail. You can't be arrested because someone said you did something. That's only hearsay. There had to be visible evidence that this woman was telling the truth.

You know at least he DID what needed to be done.. And CRIMINAL THREATS... that DOES NOT MEAN HITTING!!! All you psycho haters need to give it a rest. He didnt hit that trick... and NO I do not believe it was RHI-Rhi either. Just some groopy wanting her 15 minutes of fame.... And so say what you want but history shows stupid tricks will lie about a situation just to get noticed... We won't be paying attention to the next wacko chick who says " I was the girl he was mean to.. " I just hope no media outlet gives this lying stupid skank any air time.... Thanks to losers like this... people's lives are rouined... And BTW IT WAS NOT RHIANNA!!!!DUH!!!!

Ok for all of you idiots who are saying he didn't hit her- A FELONY CRIMINAL THREATENING CHARGE INCLUDES PHYSICAL VIOLENCE. It is a felony and not a misdemeanor charge because there was physical contact. My guess is that he wasn't charged with battery because his attorney is Mark Geragos and they wanted a charge that would stick.

Criminal Threatening:

"In most U.S. jurisdictions, the crime remains a misdemeanor unless a deadly weapon is involved or actual violence is committed, in which case it is usually considered a felony."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criminal_threatening

He was charged with a felony = he hit her.

Okay, the loser has now retained Geragos and nothing else will happen tonight.

Is there a TMZ staffer in Brazil right now, or is that too much to ask?

I think it's really sad that his "fans" are trying to defend him.

People need to realize that celebrities aren't saints. Most of them do drugs, etc...

It's like people who are fans of Tom Cruise who refuse to believe he's gay. Whatever...
