D.A. Gets Rihanna Case

3/4/2009 8:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BrownTMZ has learned the L.A. County District Attorney has received the Chris Brown case from the LAPD.

No decision will be made today. It is under review.

Brown was arrested for allegedly making criminal threats. Sources say the D.A. will review that allegation as well as felony domestic battery.

Brown is scheduled to make an appearance in court tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if the D.A. files charges tomorrow and if Brown is arraigned. If that happens, it will be especially interesting if Rihanna shows up with him.

Of course, we will be all over it.

RiRi,

Don't know if you even read this but I just wanted to tell you I was married to a man who started hitting, choking, slapping, shoving, pushing, pinching, kicking me 1 month after we got married.
My parents were very strict, and so I was only allowed to see him on Friday Night and Saturday Night.
I had a curfew. I could not see him during the week.
My parents fought me on it so much that as soon as I turned 18, I married him.
He was a really good man (I thought) and then................
OMG..............all HELL broke loose. It was like I was married to a man I did not know. I wasn't allowed to spend a a lot of time with him when I dated him, so I never saw this side before. He convinced me I wasn't worth crap, he was very controlling and extremely jealous.

He beat me up so bad one time I was taken to the hospital, I pressed charges, he was locked up,he went to jail for awhile,
I filed for divorce (thank God we had no kids), divorce was granted, he remarried did the same thing to her; except he choked her until she died. My family just kept saying "That could have been you". Now he is in prison.

Rihanna, I know how after they slap you or hit you they come around crying promising not to do it again....
(I WISH I HAD A DOLLAR FOR EVERY TIME I HEARD THAT FROM MY EX).

Rihanna, you are very successful and appear to have your stuff together. However, I really think YOU should seek counseling separately from Chris to try and figure out why you are staying with him....

I hate to tell you this...woman to woman....girl...he is not going to change......

The word is, now the D.A. is making a secret "slap on the wrist" plea deal with Chris Brown. This proves that the D.A.'s office is for sale. Brown should be hit with attempted murder, no deals, no excuses!!!

ut oh    

If she has forgiven him than so be it. It wasn't her who called the cops on him but a nosy passerby. Let the judicial system go after others who do press chargess.

It really saddens me to see this beautiful, very talented young girl go back to the man that beat her up! If it happens once, it'll happen again. I'm just a 48yr old Mom of 3 great teens; and I have come to like some of their music. Umbrella was my all time favorite. But now I will be boycotting them both! This girl is throwing away her career and life to be with another OJ. I just pray and hope she does not end up like Nicole Brown Simpson, She had an opportunity to stand up to her abuser, and be a great role model for young girls. She blew it, and now her career will suffer those choices she's made. She's showing the young girls that it's okay to forgive your man, and stand by him.....SHAME on you Rihanna and Chris for this entire mess!

I'm sure that C. Brown will feel the full wrath of "Hollywood Justice"
Chris Brown: "you are sentenced to serve two days community service....and may the presiding judge please have you autograph before you leave the court room?????????
Now don't all of you WIFE -BEATER'S think that you will get off so lightly, That sentence is only reserved for those that have "MONEY or FAME"...don't ever forget that!!!!!!

Rhianna and any youn girls reading this ; please know after a guy beats you, he feels reallly bad, and asks you to forgive him, promises never to do it again, there's a honeymoon period, all lovey dovey, and then it starts all over again. Nothing new. Thats how it works. Don't fall for it.

I am telling like it is!    

I hope the best for chris and ri ri! This is my thing people are so quick to judge so quick to put somebody up for charges guess what when it is every last one of all yall chances to face the music I hope there is someone or people saying get the whole story first not just hear say cause if not you will feel what he feels and what she feels. People are innocent until proven guilty and Ri Ri just proved she is staying so that means leave it alone. Cause if it was me I would not care about what none of you broke ass negative people have to say. Cause in the morning you mean not a damn thing to either one of them.

Domestic violance should be taken seriousley, but for the first time offendar, if at all possible, mandatory therapy and domestic violance classes and anger management at a court approved program or provider should be submitted to the court,( but not part of a public record.) a first time offendar should be afforded the opportunity for intervention and counseling and community service, instead of charges. But only once should this be offered, not a three strike deal, once you get court supervised counseling by court approved providers. I pray that this situation be resloved in a humane and fair resolution. but by the grace of God go we, and as a society we must dispense the same style of justice we would want if we for some reason snapped. Also if the offendar does not comply with the court on its time schedule, then charges should be pressed on the first time offence.

I HOPE AND HE BETTER GET CHARGED. EVEN IF HE HAS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. i THINK CHARGES SHOULD RISE DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH MONEY HE HAS LIKE TAXES. IF THE FINE IS IN THE THOUSANDS HE WONT BE AFFECTED. THEN WITH THE MONEY THEY SHOULD DONATE IT TO ANY COMMUNITY FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN THAT DEAL WITH ABUSED RELATIONSHIPS .

Leave Them Alone    

FIRST OF ALL IF IT IS TRUE THAT CHRIS BROWN CAME FROM ABUSIVE HOUSE HOLD RHIANNA HAS HAD RUMOR THAT SHE TO CAM FROM A NOT TOTALLY STABL ENVIROMENT. THEN IT IS THE PARENTS WHO ARE AT FAULT FOR NOT MAKING SURE AS CHILDREN;WHICH THEY ARE! GET COUSELING OR SOME HELP TO COPE WITH THE THINGS THAT HAVE TRAUMITIZED THEM AS CHILDREN, ESPECIALY HN YOUR CHILD IS BEING GROOMED TO BE IN THE PUBLIC EYE. CHRIS HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO EDUCATE FOLKS ABOUT WHAT HE HAS GONE THROUGH AND HOW TO OVER COME ABUSE; AS DOES RHIANNA. HE IS 19 AND IN LOVE FOR THE FIRST TIME AND WOULD NOT KNOW HOW TO RELEASE ANGER CORRECTLY IF HE WAS NOT TAUGHT TO; THE SAME GOES FOR RHIANNA. THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED. FOLKS ARE SO QUICK TO JUDGE. HE IS NOT A WOMAN BEATER H IS A CHILD THAT NEEDS DIRECTION AND HAS ALEGEDLY MADE A MISTAKE THAT THEY BOTH ARE YOUNG ENOUGH TO CORRECT. I AM HAPPY THEY ARE SPEAKING TO EACH OTHER WHICH IS ONE STEP TOWARD HEALING. NOW THE NEXT STEP IS COUNSELING. PASTORS AE NOT COUNSELORS...NOT ALL PASTORS ARE EDUCATED IN HUMAN PHSYCOLOGY, HUMAN BEHAVIOR; ALTHOUGH KNOWING YOU HAVE EMOTIONAL SUPPORT FROM THE CHURCH MAKS SOME FOLKS FEEL GOOD, IT DOES NOT FIX THE PROBLEM.

I LOVE BOTH OF THEM AND HAVE FAITH WIH THE PROPER MANAGEMENT AND POSITIVE PEOPLE AROUND THEM THEY WILL BE FINE...

BTW: YOU FOLKS THAT ARE CRUSIFYING HIM HAVE NO COMPASSION AND/OR ARE NOT LOGICAL REASONABLE PEOPLE...SCARY THOUGHT?

PEACE

You know alot of betting people in vegas are going to be out some money in a BIG way!! They should have went with the ones who bet on his not being charged and walking.... Because as stated before the evidence is flimsey and as for the blood in the car... That was probably his and thats WHY nothing is going to happen its a two man fight and not a one man show!!
Now lets see what other story could TMZ, and the other media outlets that CLAIM to be honest and trustworthy, talk about?? Because besides this case I am so SICK of the octo-mom and her bajillion kids... THATS a story I could REALLY do with out!!
HAY why not investigate cops and police department office personell who leak stories and evedence to the public that should NEVER be given out.. as in EVIDENCE PHOTOS AND IMPORTANT FACTS OF THE CASE ect...
In all of this NO ONE IS offended that HER RIGHTS as a victim were VIOLATED, she had the right to anomiminaty and those rights were violated. Sure she is from Barbados, but she is now a citizen of this country and afforded the same rights as you and me. GOD if ever I am a victim of any crime I hope I AM NOT in L.A. when it happens.. BECAUSE I KNOW FOR SURE MY RIGHTS AS A VICTIM WILL BE VIOLATED!
