"Chris Brown allegedly has a history of assaulting Rihanna. While TMZ cites the police report where Rihanna claims she's been abused before, Us Weekly reports she had bruises on her neck as recently as December:
Brown -- who is currently being investigated by Los Angeles county prosecutors after Rihanna allegedly accused him of assaulting her the night before the Grammys -- always had a "volatile" relationship with the singer, an insider tells Us.
A Rihanna confidant adds that bruises were clearly visible on the singer's neck in early December. Alarmed, "I asked is everything was OK with her and Chris," says the pal. "She told me, 'We broke up again.' I didn't pursue the issue further."
Meanwhile, T.I. and actor Terrence Howard have retracted statements they made. Both claim had they known what Chris Brown was accused of they would've never spoken, according to E! News:
When asked by paparazzi last night if he had any comment on the Chris Brown incident with Rihanna, the actor said, "It's just life, man. Chris is a great guy. He'll be all right. And Rihanna knows he loves her. She'll be all right. Just everybody's got to get out of their way." But now, Howard is insisting he didn't know about the allegations made against Brown when he made his remarks.
"When they asked me about Chris Brown the other day, I was in no way aware of what he had been accused of," Howard said in a statement. "Had I known, I would have never had said something so insensitive." Bullshit.
Howard is the second high-profile celeb in as many days to retract remarks they made about Brown and Rihanna. This is the same mofo who will dump a woman for not having baby wipes in her bathroom, because that proves just how filthy she is...he's a total whiney-ass douche.
Rapper T.I. issued a statement yesterday regretting (read: his P.R. machine is regretting) comments he made the night before on Last Call With Carson Daly. T.I. said he "made a mistake of commenting before understanding the situation." Yeah, because that's how T.I. speaks. Here's his eloquent summary of his conversation with Chris Brown after the attack:
Monday night on "Last Call With Carson Daly," T.I. said he has spoken with Brown since the incident happened. "I spoke to him today," Tip said. "He cool, you know. He a little concerned about the situation, but he still the same Chris." Yep. He cool.
Oh, and let's not forget this thug is on his way to jail, too, for having a MACHING GUN, among other weapons Yep. Mr. Sensitivity.
To quote Christian Bale, "ohhhh goooood". He's in Vegas. Where ELSE would he go to clear his head and maybe get some professional help (other than hiring sleazy attorney Mark Geragos)?
Surprisingly, Kanye West proved not to be so "typical" regarding Rihanna, by not sticking up for Brown, but by offering support in this way:
"I was completey devastated during the performance," he said. "All I will say is it's so devastating. I feel like, just as a person, I don't care how famous she is, or even if she worked at McDonald's, that should have never happened. It should have never come to that place."
