Chris and Rihanna -- History of Violence

8/25/2009 8:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris and Rihanna The court file in the Chris Brown case confirms the story we've told for months -- that Rihanna complained this was not the first time there was violence in the relationship.

According to court docs, there were two previous incidents. The first occurred in Europe three months before the February 8 attack. Rihanna and Brown got into a verbal dispute and she slapped him. According to the report, he reacted by shoving her into a wall.

The second incident occurred approximately 3 weeks prior to the February attack. Brown and Rihanna were in Barbados and were driving a Range Rover. They argued, and Brown got out of the car, and allegedly broke the front driver and passenger side windows.

I'm not saying what he did is right, but she shouldn't resort to violence either. Being female is not an excuse to become physically aggressive

Yeah, it would not matter if he beat her 30 times before this...celebrity justice again has it's day in court and another punk bitch gets off with less than a slap on his limp wrist.

He needs to "Tuff Luv" from the Boyz in Chino Prison, not this crap!

Um..really? Come on now. Okay so if someone slapped you, would you just sit there and look stupid? No, you would've slapped them backmor something worse. It seems like people are trying to frame Chris as an abuser..I'm not saying TMZ is guilty for doing that but I'm tired of hearing people talk bad about Chris cause 9 times out of 10 they would have done the same.

It's mind-boggling to me how no one has reported that Rihanna is a violent person herself; friends from both sides claim that she used to put her hands on Brown and she admitted herself to smashing a glass in her brother's face. I am not condoning nor excusing the fact that Chris put his hands on her, no man should EVER hit a woman! However... it's very unfair that his career is in the toilet while she walks around getting pity and praise for being a victim. Nobody draws any attention to her violent history, her issues with jealousy and control, and her overall lack of respect.The fact that she still wants to keep in contact with him is ridiculous, and that the feeling is mutual as far as he's concerned is even more ridiculous! As a society we need to teach both our sons AND daughters that relationships require MUTUAL respect. Neither partner should harm the other emotionally or physically. It's just like the "one way street" regarding promiscuity. A woman with multiple partners is bashed; labeled a whore and then some, but a man who sleeps around gets applauded for it. "He's the man" is what they say. It's unfair. Let me just make very clear that I'm not a fan of either of these two, and had there been no reports of Rihanna being the "girlfriend from hell" I'd definitely be on her side yelling "Lock 'em up!" Of course no one in this world is purely innocent, but as I stated before, she has a history of violence herself. Put that into prospective. Clearly, both of them had issues and these issues should be questioned and discussed equally. Men honor, cherish, and respect your women, and women do the same in return!

If there's one important lesson that the courts are teaching everyone from this crime; it's that it's okay for a man to beat the $^!^@#$ out of a woman b/c all he has to worry about is community service hours.

The bottom-line is they are young and the were to young to be involed in such a serious realationship. obviously they brought the worst out in each other. She put her hands on him pior to this so she has issues to. She starts the fights and he finish the fights, but in the wrong way thats because he was only 19ys old he was wrong no doubt but lets be realstic she was to. im not buying that police statment he he need all that she would at least had a black eye or a broken bone. The statment was made in anger i been there before. They are no good for each other bottom-line

Where does it say, Harvey, that he brutalized her? You just reprimanded someone on your internet show today for exaggerating, now you're doing it yourself. The reports are that SHE hit him and then he pushed her. I believe that you've reported this before as he pushed her into the wall and told her to CALM DOWN. In Barbados, is there a report that he HIT her, or just broke the windows? Again, you reported before that he broke the windows and that there was no physical altercation. Are you changing the story now?

This makes it clear that he's not a "monster". I will condemn him all day long for what happened on feb. 8th b/c that was just SO violent and uncalled for. But the prior incidents mks it clear he's not just a guy who likes to beat women. I actually don't like to hear him referred that way. Because it undermines all the men who beat women and who have no issues with doing it over and over. Everything just got really out of hand on Grammy night. And I hate him for that (i look past Rihanna because it's not the same--right or wrong, it's NOT the same; he's a man so he's held to a different standard. People can argue against that all day long but it's just the way it is.) It's clear he has a temper problem but he's not a monster. Still will talk crap about him b/c like I said, what he did was really messed up.

Chris should have went to jail but, he's a celebrity, so that was not going to happen And, whats up with Rihanna? Allowing him to use her as a punching bag! a very dysfunctional relationship at best. I have also noticed that Rihanna has started looking more like a hooker since the "attack". She has traded sophistication and class for a more slutty look !!

1) if she nvr slapped him, he would've never shoved her so that was more than deserved. i wouldn't want some dumb broad slapping me either..

2) it's so obvious that she was making him mad. he obviously has a temper problem and he needs help. making him upset doesn't do anything.

she is such a stupid bitch. i'm glad he's not with her anymore.
