Text Message Ignites Rihanna/Brown Violence

2/11/2009 1:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown & RihannaLaw enforcement sources confirm to TMZ Chris Brown received a text message from a woman while he was driving with Rihanna and that's what started the confrontation that left Rihanna battered and bruised.

We're told the text message was from a woman who wrote about hooking up with Brown later.

We've also learned there is a reference in the police report to an argument over a rapper, but we've learned this is NOT what triggered the argument. The woman who text messaged Brown is not a rapper. The NY Daily News first reported the text message.

As for Rihanna's injuries, we continue to learn more. Cops took multiple pictures at the scene. Chris Brown allegedly hit Rihanna so hard with his fists, she could barely open her eyes for the photos -- they were almost completely swollen shut. She had a fat lip, her mouth was swollen, her nose was badly bloodied, and she had contusions on her forehead and both sides of her face.

Something is telling me that the situation has been way blown out of hand.

It sounds like she is the jealous controlling type from the reports.

I don't believe everything Rihanna and her crew are saying. There is more than meets the eye.

I hope CB gets himself sorted.
If he did it, he needs to learn from it and get help.

I hope he comes out of it. Good luck Chris.

People need to leave Chris brown and Rihanna alone. People don't even know the real story, so people need to stop spreading rumors. If you’re not Chris brown or Rihanna you shouldn't be sharing it with anyone else and lying on them. People act like a couple can't fight or argue their human, they’re going to get mad and want to fight but sadly there fights are more noticeable because there famous and there both in the spot light. It kills me to be one of Chris brown’s biggest fans and to hear this it hurts my heart but its life. The media always try and bring down teens role models. People need to mind their own business and stop speeding rumors and leave them two alone. Just like the courts say your innocent until proven guilty. So stop spreading those rumors and leave there names out of your mouth!

I don't know, but something isn't right about any of this. There are alot of facts that have been left out about what happened to begin with and the facts that are being reported sound kind of fish. Can this be some kind of publicity stunt? For what reason I don't know. Everyone seems to be putting all the blame on Chris. In my opinion, (and of course this is only my opnion), I think Rihanna wanted to end this relationship and this is her way of doing so and making Chris out to be the bad guy. She did after all deny she was even dating Chris way back in the beginning, so what should we believe? What we read and hear? I think not, most of these stories are just bull anyway. So you have to wonder what really is going down.
