Thank Goodness. Hopefully the state will be able to help her by helping him (even if just by convicting him) as she is clearly (if she has in fact gone back to him) not capable of helping herself right now.

Well not a lot of people even thought he'd be charged, but he is. So i hope he does that max sentence so Ri is forced to be away from him and grow a friggin' BRAIN! It doesn't take long to realize how bad a situation is once you're out, but as long as she is still in it with him she'll be blind to it. She needs to set an example for young black women and be strong about this. so sad.

Not only are the younger females too stupid not to accept such abuse as normal, many parents are also being slapped around by their kids (both sons and daughters) and those parental abuse victims are too afraid to report such abuse to the authorities. I know how it is because after having spent 20 years of my life struggling to raise my daughter and provide her with opportunities to have more in her life than I had in my life - She has two degrees, she dresses like a movie star, she is very popular, and drives a BMW - within the past 9 years she has attacked me and hurt me four times. If I reported her to the authorities - I would ruin her career, her self-esteem, and I would be forever cast as her evil Mother.

Good! No abuser, rich or poor and regardless of who their attorney is - should be left unpunished. Rihanna's only 21, let's hope she finds the common sense to know that there are some good men out there,

And, to those celebrities who cannot find it in themselves to say this isn't right - just beat around the subject, then I would hate to think what's going on behind your closed doors.

Did they never hear the Ike and Tina Turner story? - She said 'bye-bye' and was a bigger star without him.

Grow up and move on...

I am thinking back to when she was performing with him last year and ran off the stage. They said her corset was to tight but I wonder if he had injured her ribs.

In a surprising development in the Rihanna Chris Brown saga, latest reports suggest that the couple secretly tied the knot soon after their reconciliation in Miami.

Brown, who is to undergo his first court hearing for allegedly assaulting Rihanna on the eve of the Grammys, proposed to the 20-year-old singer and married her during their Miami getaway at rap mogul Sean Combs USD 20 million mansion.,

Earlier reports had claimed that Rihanna agreed to forgive Brown after she realised that she was pregnant with his child.

The secret wedding was conducted by a minister who was brought in for the spur of the moment ceremony, says a source.

"Rihanna is looking for the husband-and-two-kids deal before she turns 25. She believes in fairy tales, and she wants to live hers with Chris. She was totally up front and confessed to him, 'I can't live without you'", the source said.

The magazine has also published pictures of Rihanna and Brown together during their Miami holiday. The couple had avoided being spotted together after their reported
reconciliation.

The couple were at the centre of controversy when the news broke that the 19-year-old Brown had battered his long time girl friend Rihanna, after she reportedly questioned him over a text message from another woman.

The couple were to perform together at the Grammy's on February 8 but pulled out at the last moment following the incident.

Later, a leaked photograph of the singer taken after the incident showed the extent of injuries on her face. The photographs sparked outrage among the music industry as well as her fans.

Brown was boycotted by radio stations across the country and lost lucrative endorsement deals besides facing criticism from the industry's big wigs including Jay-Z and Kanye West.

After battering Rihanna, Brown went on to criticise her on his Facebook home page, but as the angry reactions started pouring in against him, the singer changed stance by expressing remorse over the incident.
