From an affidivit presented to the Superior Court in Los Angeles on March 6th:
In the affidavit attached to a search warrant for phone records, Los Angeles Police Det. De Shon Andrews wrote that the altercation began after Rihanna -- referred to as "Robyn F." -- discovered "a three-page text message" on Brown's phone from a former lover. The couple began arguing, the detective wrote, and Brown shoved Rihanna's head against the window of the car. He then began punching her with his right hand while he steered the car with his left, according to the affidavit."The assault caused Robyn F.'s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle," the detective wrote.
Rihanna then used her cellphone to call an assistant, according to the detective. When the call went to voice mail, she pretended she was speaking to the woman and told her to have police waiting at her home, the warrant states. Brown became further enraged, the detective wrote, and told her, "You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I'm really going to kill you!"Brown continued pummeling Rihanna on her face, arms and legs, according to the affidavit. When Rihanna attempted to text message another assistant for help, Brown threw her phone out the window, and when she grabbed for his cellphone, he put her in a headlock, pulled her close to him and bit her ear, the detective wrote.
Eventually Brown stopped the vehicle and Rihanna grabbed the car keys and began screaming for help. Brown punched and choked her and she began to lose consciousness."She reached up with her left hand and began attempting to gouge his eyes in an attempt to free herself. Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers and then released her," the detective wrote. A neighbor called the police and Brown walked away, the detective wrote.
A half-hour later, Brown phoned one of Rihanna's assistants "as if nothing has happened," Andrews said. Informed that the police were with Rihanna, Brown asked if she "had provided the police with his name and [the assistant] advised him that she had." Brown hung up, the affidavit states.
From Hollywood Rag, dated March 5th 2009:
Rihanna and Chris Brown have secretly married.Chris - who was arrested after allegedly attacking Rihanna last month - is believed to have proposed to the 'Umbrella' singer during their emotional reunion at P. Diddy's Miami mansion last weekend. A source said: "They had a tearful face-to-face meeting at Diddy's, during which an emotional Chris apologized, begged for forgiveness and proposed to her on the spot." She was totally up front and confessed to him, 'I can't live without you.'"After Rihanna accepted the 19-year-old star's proposal, the couple asked a minister to marry them at Diddy's $14.5 million mansion on the exclusiveStar Island.
Kanye West made a mild criticism of Brown and was promptly rebuked, so he had to apologize. Sadly, but not unexpectedly, other rappers and fans are apparently supporting Brown (I'm thinking Akon), probably because of the Bros Before Hos Law in the hip hop world. If the marriage rumor is true, I fear that sooner or later, Chris Brown will end up "putting Rihanna out of her misery".
