I abhor physical mistreatment of women in any form - that being said - I know firsthand (having been falsely arrested) that some women do press dv (domestic violence) charges against their man for many reasons......usually jealousy or embarassment. The key here is any pnysical evidence such as pictures, someone needing medical attention and most important - an eyewitness. I know the police can observe a redness or some swelling to the body of the alleged victim but some of these injuiries can be easily self inflicted. Real men do not hurt their women, but women must understand if they do taunt, or push their men in any argument, that if they are angry at their man and want to teach them a lesson - think twice or more if you press charges...... you may end up waking a beast in your man and start something like: stalking or worse - even if he never exhibited those terrible characteristics.

This guy is hysterically funny - there's no way he was getting heckled at a show where people paid to see him so stop lying.

As far as Chris Brown, Riyanna gave him herpes, that's why he went off on her. Herpes is for life - I don't know what I would do if my girlfriend a) cheated and b) gave me herpes. It's a life changing thing - no more free sex - you need to find a girl who also has herpes now.

Wow - you're certainly making assumptions. Robert was arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse, not convicted of it. No mention of the injuries he sustained in the beating she gave him or what caused the altercation.
