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.
