Rihanna is said to be cooperating with police in the case against boyfriend Chris Brown’s alleged assault on her before the Grammys. The story is not pretty.
A source close to the investigation told E! News that Rihanna has alleged to police that Chris choked her, threatened to kill her and she lost consciousness as a result of the attack.
They were together at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party late Saturday, and began fight. As to why they started fighting…there are reports that Chris received a text and that Paris Hilton was all over Chris outside of the party, and also rumors that Rihanna gave Chris the herpes…hmm. After midnight, things blew up. Brown pulled his rented Lamborghini to the side of a street in L.A.’s Hancock Park. Reportedly, Rihanna grabbed the car keys, threw them out the window…and Chris snapped.
After an unsuccessful search for the keys, he came back to the car, put his hands around her neck and said, “I’m going to kill you!” Rihanna told police that she lost consciousness, and when she came to, Chris was gone.
Officers were so concerned about her, they drove her to the hospital in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance. They took picture of her injuries at the scene and after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The pics are likely among the evidence presented to the D.A.
Chris was released from LAPD custody after posting $50,000 bail. His celebu-lawyer, Mark Geragos and Chris’s publicist have not responded to requests for comment on the situation. These are very serious charges that Chris is facing. It’s too bad, but he may have killed his career.
We’re learning LAPD took pictures of Rihanna’s injuries and they are “horrific.”
TMZ reports that the photos show major contusions on both sides of the singer’s face, there is serious swelling and bruising. Her lip is split and her nose bloody. There is confirmation there are bite marks on one of her arms and on several fingers.
Rihanna claims Chris Brown struck her with his fists and that’s what did the damage. There was reportedly no object used in the alleged attack, contrary to earlier reports. Apparently Chris Brown’s fists are the “deadly weapon” in the felony charge.
Rihanna refused treatment at the scene, cops took photos before she left. TMZ says the photos alone are “devastating proof of abuse.” An additional detail is that it was not Rihanna who called 911. Someone else nearby heard her screams and called in the emergency.
Chris is the last person fans expected to behave like such a thug, although there are rumors that Rihanna gave him herpes, and this is what set him off.
It’s been confirmed that Rihanna is the named alleged victim in the Chris Brown case and the allegation is that she was assaulted with a deadly weapon.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the crime report calls the incident assault with a deadly weapon; it’s not yet known what kind of weapon was involved. Rihanna reportedly has a broken nose and other injuries. The crime report gives the victim’s name as Robyn Fenty- Rihanna’s real name.
Jay-Z and others who have been very supportive of Rihanna over the years, say if the charges are true, Chris Brown will never work in Hollywood again. Yikes.
Update: It has been confirmed that Rihanna is the named alleged victim in the Chris Brown case. The allegation is that she was assaulted with a deadly weapon.
Insiders have identified singer Rihanna as the victim of a felony domestic assault by her boyfriend, R&B singer Chris Brown. As we told you earlier, Chris was on the lam from the cops all day after the assault early this morning. He turned himself into the LAPD a few hours ago, and was arrested.
Both Chris and Rihanna were at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party last night, and left together. The assault took place in a car, and Chris left the scene before the cops arrived. Rihanna’s reps have been saying that her facial injuries were due to a “car accident”, but it is now virtually certain that she was the female victim whom the cops (as normal practice) did not identify by name.
NY Post reports that Sources said Brown beat Rihanna after they fought in his car following the party.
“She got out of the car to walk home. He got out to stop her,” said a source. “Things got physical. He hit her, possibly more than once. She had multiple bruises.”
A security guard at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles told the Daily News Sunday night that he saw Rihanna being taken for treatment at the hospital.
“She’s been released,” said guard Rodderick Brown.
TMZ has video of Chris getting booked, on $50,000 bond. He has reportedly bonded out.
Ri-Ri needs to get her alien boots out and stiletto all over that dumbass. Swiss-cheese him. Hopes for a speedy recovery for Rihanna, and swift justice for Chris.
