Chris Brown Allegedly Had Abusive History with Rihanna, Case Delayed Due to Weakness in Charges

Chris and Rihanna Allegedly Had Abusive Past, Case Delayed

Chris Brown's alleged attack on Rihanna might not have been his first. Friends of Rihanna have stepped up and said she had visible bruises on her neck in December. Supporting this story is the most recent police report in which Rih supposedly revealed Chris had attacked her before and they were in an "ongoing and escalating abusive relationship." While Chris's sister said her brother's not violent, there are reports that he has a history of temper problems.

Some suspect Chris is in Las Vegas while others say that he and Rihanna are still in LA. Tonight both of them are up for NAACP Image Awards, and there hasn't been word of their cancellations yet. The case has been pushed back for further investigation to determine whether the criminal threats charge, which is based on Chris' alleged threat to kill Rihanna, is strong enough to hold. The police may be re-interviewing both of them soon. Meanwhile, celebrities like TI and Terrence Howard are retracting their support of Chris while Jay-Z, who is very protective of Rihanna, is upset, angry, and ready to take action about the situation.

I hope these friends of Rihanna who are now saying that she had bruises in December tried to talk some sense into her when they first had evidence. This whole thing makes me sick.

Chris Brown is not a man, he is a coward. What kind of a man beats on a woman... a coward. I think that men beat on woman because they are just too big of a whoose to face life and the facts that come with life. He needs to quit being a big whoose and face life like a man oh wait he's not a man.

All the wonderful things he has done???... :S....okayyyy ... would seem this isn't the first time that they seems that BOTH of them have quite a temper (opposites attract! ;) ) can't see all of that nor judge someone by what you see on the outside and stuff and women let men get away with alot of crap! seems ALOT of ppl are uneducated or something... ANYONE...white, black asian, indian,poor, rich, wealthy, intelligent, stupid or of whatever nationality and background abuse/beat up their significant other or the person they are in a relationship with. WE the puplic have NO idea how many ppl in hollywood have gone through this since everything is normally kept VERY quiet..this is just the first to get out since someone called it in..if the person didnt call it in I wonder if we would even know anything at all about it! abuse in relationships are common but those ppl half the world never heard of..i just hate it when ppl make it seems so common it doesn't matter... When he came to her country...he did some stuff down there..violent stuff that almost everyone "can't imagine" he would do..poor lil Chris, he's so cute and talented! not him..she provoked him..she made him beat her up!! LOL...please obviously you ppl out there wouldn't know since its far away from the American press and such etc and was cover up very nicely. They are both to blame for the situation, he knew she was that way (if so) in the early..he should have left her! she knew he was that way..she should have left him and know she would get over it sooner or later! but they both stayed until it escalated to this...NOONE raises their child to beat a woman..but they should raise their children NOT to beat a woman nor man. I have known & heard of women who are very wicked who do the worst things to men..the really good sweet men (not saying Chris is one i can't swear for him)..worse than she has i'm sure and the men DON'T beat them up or even hit them back..they leave them there and find someone better. No matter if she started it or not...all he had to do in the early was NOT take her home, let someone do it! or even if he had to shove her, get in his car and leave her there..i wouldn't mind that aleast...but to let it get to this is crap..especially at their ages!! They are toooooo young for this crap.. they are not even married!! and to have all this drama is ridiculous...ppl always want to blame the woman, stop it! A real man would not raise his hand or fight back! he would have enough respect not to, women do stuff when they get emotional...there is another woman and all sorts of stuff in their head, and they feel just mad and everything..... gosh they should not have gone together and too young to be an abusive relationship! they both indeed need some kind of anger management or something...

I think that it is a sad that something like this would happen. Chris doesnt seem like the kind that would beat someone but he is still young and this could be the start of his attacks. no offense. But for me it is still really hard to believe that he would do this. I mean all of the wonderful things he has done.

I agree with nguidjol! ...funny catherela ...because ppl are also gossiping about him having another woman and then gossiping about an std...hmm.i would say NOT RIHANNA..the one that is "cheating" with another woman/women is the one that gives the disease...and i hope to God that std thing is really a stupid lie like all the others circulating on other sites and gullible ppl believeing because i don't want her with no disease especially from him, those things are just terrible, a faithful partner is so important. But so far that's another bunch of ignorant gossip. Celeb or NO celeb, i would care alot about who he hit and still tell Rihanna and hoping she left him! she is a WOMAN..ppl keep hating (on a bunch of other sites) on her because she has the celebrity status..she wasn't born a celeb, she was a normal girl for a long time whose dream came true and it is what's in the spotlight and stuff..she's still human. I HATE WHEN ANY WOMAN GETS BEAT AND UNFAIRED BY A MAN :(. Some of you ppl talk about child abuse but when the child grows up it's suppose to be okay to get abused?? She is someone's daughter, her mother must be enraged!..Chris's mother?...well she should know and speak to her son.

um, cold sores are herpes. never said anything about a std, its strand 1 of the virus. and even though it's not a std, cold sores on your mouth are transferable to others. and OBVIOUSLY, of course, nothing justifies him hitting her. i was just wondering if that was the REASON he did do it. i didn't say she deserved a beating IF it was due to herpes... please read carefully before getting all riled up :)

I wouldn't give him another chance. But I'm saying many in the public would. Like, when Axl Rose did it. No one cared because Stephanie Seymour was WAY less famous than her.

wow - that's really sad to think that this was an on-going thing, but at least it's come out in the open, and hopefully if he does have a violent past, that he'll do something about it. i was watching an interview w/ his family and they said that he's got a past that has a bit of anger management issues. i think that it's nice that so many celebs are really pulling for rhi and i hope that some how it all works out for her...she deserves better,and it seems like chris really needs help.

If it wasn't Rihanna that he hit, everyone would be giving him another chance. Not true. Rihanna or not Rihanna, there is no excuse for domestic violence

If it wasn't Rihanna that he hit, everyone would be giving him another chance. I think he is ugly as all hell inside and out. He is trashy, gross, ignorant, has no class, and add abuser to it? What a package. He should go back to the ghetto where he came from with his mother and whatever crack boyfriend she has this week. Rihanna deserves much, much better.

I feel bad for her. And honestly for him too. He's got issues. And for the people saying she should have gotten out at first hit, should have known better, etc. Let me tell you from personal experience: It's amazing how quickly this kind of violence can escalate, and even the strongest woman can get pulled into giving it 'one more shot'. It sucks, it's horrible, but it's true. Like many of you, I just hope this is enough for her to see that she's worth more than this. Everyone has a different 'rock bottom', let's just hope this is as far as Rihanna's goes...

It just gets worse and worse :( I hope Rihanna's ok. and I love the fact that Jay-Z's very protective of her.

I'm certain to get ran out of town for my opinion but here it is: There has never been a moment when I haven't thought Rihanna and Chris were a trainwreck waiting to happen. I haven't ever seen a moment where I could honestly see the obvious affection she had for him was also how he felt about her. He's a 18-19 yrld momma's boy who hasn't hid the fact that he's open to all comer. Usher? same pedigree but grew up. Chris? A child who Rihanna unfortunately felt like many girls do, that they can change a boy, or "make" the guy love them. No one has any business putting their hands on anyone for any other reason than self defense, and even then, as in this case (from what I'm told), if your life isn't being threatend and you know you're the stronger more powerful one, then you need to walk away, run away, hell, even call 911 yourself "man or woman." Chris apparently hasn't confronted his rage and apparently no one has thought it important to strongly suggest that he do so and now his career is probably all but destroyed. Its massively jacked up to me that his family. friends and business handlers and most importantly Rihanna didn't take it all serious before they had no choice to. JMHO

this does not shock me at all. generally if a man beats a woman like the way chris did it means that it wasn't the first it has happen.
