Chris Brown -- Bad Bad Choice

6/20/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hypothetical question: If you were a singer accused of beating your girlfriend to a pulp and your preliminary hearing was set for Monday ... would your next release be a song called "Smash" ?????

By the way ... Monday will be extremely interesting. Rihanna is set to take the stand and give the blow-by-blow.

The big question -- will Chris Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, cross-examine Rihanna. As we reported, Rihanna was aggressive with Brown in the car, striking him repeatedly after seeing a text message on Brown's phone from another woman.

@ all the ones on here demonizing Chris Brown. First of all, this is the first time I saw TMZ admit Rihanna was agressive with Chris. Because her police report never mentioned the fact that she beat on him. But what I can't understand about you self righteous, mainstream hypocrtis is why is it that you were not upset by Jack Nicholson or Charlie Sheen or Christian Slater or Tommy Lee or any of the other mainstream A-List celebs that beat the crap out of their mates and the state didn't even pick up the charges. Doesn't that sicken you that the state would treat Chris so much differently then these big stars? What in the hell did Chris do to deserve TWO felonies???Rihanna admits she had slapped him before and now TMZ is saying she was aggressive with him that night - AFTER HE TRIED TO GET HER OUT OF HIS CAR. So now she starts hitting and slapping on him AFTER he starts driving a rented 1/4 million dollar car with crazy horse power and he's supposed to remain calm and somehow just hold her back as she hits and he drives???? That's all crazy...I don't know what the D.A. is after, I don't understand what Chris's lawyer is after - but none of this makes sense to me. I wish Chris all the best in the world and will support everything he does - whereas I didn't before. But he defintely has been treated unfairly by the ignorant media and the hypocritical mainstream Americans that turn their heads when it's one of their own.

Well said asdf, so true, that's what I can't stand about America
The media have been very unfair on Chris and like you said hypocritical, ignorant and I would say also very judgemental.
TMZ never talked a lot about Rihanna being aggressive, however they talked a lot about Chris being aggressive by posting in every topic about him as BEATING HER UP TO A PULP, as the date draws nearer to the REAL TRUTH, they want to change the scripted up a little and admit, that she did a wrong, although they believe it's ok for people like Rihanna to be aggressive, as she's female but all men like Chris, being black not working in his favor should be punished with all the hate and name calling, you could treat anyone, with out hearing their sides to the story.

Nicole you idiot, TI's gun buying is nothing compared to beating your GF up! He bought guns cause his friend was killed azz wipe! Anyone just about would do the same thing! He bought guns for self defense and I would imagine thinking of revenge on te peeps that killed his friend. That's not the same as Beating the F out of someone you love. You need help you dumb biotch!

hate her    

DUH:

YOU KNOW DEEP DOWN IN YOUR HEART THAT MAN DID NOT BITE HER OR CHOKE HER. YOU KNOW IT, YOU JUST HATE TO ADMIT IT.

SHE WAS AGRESSIVE, JEALOUS, AND VENGEFUL AND THAT'S WHY SHE MADE UP MOST OF THAT FOOLISHNESS..

IF YOU SAY THAT YOU WOULD BEAT UP A PERSON JUST BECAUSE THEY CHEATED ON YOU, THEN YOU ARE JUST AS CRAZY AS SHE IS. BUT THAT'S OBVIOUS, ANYWAY, SHOWING HOW ERRACTIC, ONE-SIDED, AND VENGEFUL YOU ARE BEING TOWARD CHRIS.

YOUR BOYFRIEND MUST HAVE CHEATED ON YOU. DON'T TAKE IT OUT ON CHRIS JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN'T KEEP YOUR MAN.

NOTICE: TMZ IS FLIPPING THE SCRIPT AND TRYING TO CORRECT THEIR LIES THE CLOSER IT GETS TO THE COURT DATE. THEY NEVER MENTIONED THAT SHE ATTACKED HIM BEFORE, WHY NOW?

@duh ---- For a man to have to bite a woman, you know she was doing something to him...So why do you all just let the story come out Monday or stop being so judgemental. They were both wrong and if we women want equal rights - we have no right to hit a man - just like they have no right to hit a woman. It shouldn't be so one sided - like I hear people on here say - No man should every hit a woman. And people do have emotions, that's what makes us human and for the person on her that called Rihanna 'classless' because she it Chris - you're just hypocricital. Because hitting him was a lot 'classier' than the rabbi that called the police and put Chris in this legal mess where he's been charged way over the seriousness of the crime committed.

ChrisBrown&RiRiSupport    

tmz your so lame, leave chris alone, besides that song is not new its old and was leaked way before feb 8th, stop hating so much on chris, he is young and made a mistake, and finally, it was about time that you admitted that what happened on the 8th wasnt all chris's fault but both cause there was aggression from them both, tmz needs to get off him already, stop hating so much, enough is enough, they are both young and make mistakes, let them surpass this already, they probably will cause thats life we have to try and surpass the hard times and mistakes that we make but you all make it harder by the constant verbal abuse towards him specially

@asdf

That rabbi will be more of a help to CB I believe than people realize. Because he's the one who stated that CB was very calm when getting her out of the car, and that she was yelling at him. He also stated that CB was quietly shaking his head at whatever she was saying and then he walked away. BTW, why is TMZ now reporting that they've reported in the past about Rih repeatedly hitting CB? That's a lie! They've always made it out like CB attacked her. Why the backtrack now? Have they gotten new info? :-)

That Fierce-ness    

Chris did not viciously beat her up, he was not charged with battery! If he did attack her and viciously beat her up why was he not charged with battery? why did the DA have to send the case back to the police because of lack of evidence? Why was he only charged with making threats initially? Why was he charged with assault with intent only after the pics were released?
.
That search warrant that some of you people believe so much said that CB punched Rihanna in her left eye with his right hand. Can you please explain why she did not have a black left eye? It also said that he punched her repeatedly. Can you please explain why her face was not bruised up black and blue? Remember that Shamwow guy? Did you see the prostitue afterwards? If not, you should see for yourself; it was horrible. The Shamwow guy got charged with FELONY AGGRAVATED BATTERY because he, unlike CB, beat that girl to a pulp/viciously beat her up. The case was thrown out most likely because she also did damage to him. Even Kanye West got charged with battery (although a misdemeanor) for breaking a paparazzi’s camera! If CB did all that was said in that warrant he would have been charged with battery, but he was not!. All I am saying is that everyone is making what CB did MUCH WORSE THAN WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED. None of that stuff in the warrant makes sense when you compare it to what he is charged with and how Rihanna looked in the pic…it just doesn’t add up!! That warrant is BOGUS! and i hear it got thrown out by the judge and thats why they need Rihanna to come and testify, cuz that hear-say warrant is BOGUS!
.
This is from a site called angryape.com http://angryape.com/news/rihanna-thinking-positive-and-resting-says-cousin titled “Rihanna “Thinking Positive And Resting” Says Cousin”. In this article Rihanna’s very one COUSIN says this:
.
“Yvonne Fenty told Radar Online that the ‘Disturbia’ star is “holding up well”, and explained how RiRi is coping following her alleged attack by former boyfriend Chris Brown.
“Everyone is looking after her–she is just trying to catch herself and get her life back on track. None of this is as bad as everyone makes it sound. Her injuries weren’t near as bad as people make them sound.”

DId you read the last couple of sentences? Let me copy and paste it again..."None of this is as bad as everyone makes it sound. Her injuries weren’t near as bad as people make them sound". Why oh why is it so hard for people to believe that Chris is not a monster/abuser/beater/batterer??? I don't understand it. Maybe people will stay mad at Chris even though they know what I am saying is true because they don't want to have to admit they are wrong, just a thought. And I do NOT, condone violence, for the record. In this CB and Rihanna case, she hit him first and he hit her back. TWO "WRONGS" DO NOT MAKE A "RIGHT"...BUT THE SECOND "WRONG" WOULD NOT HAVE OCCURRED IF THE FIRST "WRONG" HADN'T OF HAPPENED IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Rihanna attacked CB first when she “was aggressive with Brown in the car, striking him repeatedly after seeing a text message on Brown’s phone from another woman”. It seems as if what she did does not matter to some of you people. It’s as if you overlook what she did and vilify CB even though what he did was not as bad as the media is making it seem. What would you people be sayin if they DID crash and become seriously injured because CB did not retaliate? There is a reason why TMZ is letting everyone know that she attacked him first and aggressively at that.

I personally believe Rihanna did a number on CB. No one but Rihanna and CB know what he looked like that night. He did not go to the police station till the next night so he had plenty of time to clean up. So when the po-pos saw him, he probably didn’t look too bad. I also believe the blood in the car was CBs lol. Yami said Rihanna smashed the phone in his face and caused his nose to bleed. Rihanna supporters most likely don’t believe her but I do. Why would she lie about that?

All those people callin Chris out of his name need to seriously confront their own abusers and stop saying such cruel things about Chris instead. That will not help you lol.

TEAM CHRIS! Praying for both tho.
