TMZ is reporting that Chris Brown has been charged with two felony charges resulting from his (alleged, my ass) beatings of Rihanna. It seems this most certainly wasn't the first time he laid his hands on her in a violent manner.
"The L.A. County District Attorney has just charged Chris Brown with felony assault and making criminal threats, also a felony.The charging documents name "Robyn F." as the alleged victim.Brown will be arraigned today at 3:30 PM in downtown LA. A spokesperson for the D.A. tells TMZ he could face a maximum of four years and eight months in prison.
LAPD cops interviewed Rihanna after the attack and she told them Brown had been violent toward her in the past and that the attacks were getting "more violent" as time went on. The interview is potent evidence if the L.A. County D.A. charges Brown with felony domestic battery, and that could happen as early as today.And there's something else. The photo that TMZ obtained showing Rihanna battered, bloody and bruised is mild compared to other photos. We've learned additional pics were taken on February 9, the day after the attack, and they are far more gruesome -- the bruises and swelling far more pronounced. We're told these photos show injuries that could be devastating in a case against Brown.
FOX 11 in L.A. obtained LAPD detectives notes from a search warrant in the case. According to the notes, Rihanna read a three-page text message on Brown's phone from a woman. An argument ensued and Brown allegedly tried forcing Rihanna out of the car but couldn't because she was wearing her seat belt. Brown then allegedly shoved Rihanna's head against the passenger window. When Rihanna turned to face him, Brown punched her, then continued punching her while driving, according to the detective's notes. Blood spattered all over Rihanna's clothing and in the interior of the car. Her mouth was filled with blood. Brown allegedly told Rihanna, "I'm going to beat the **** out of you when we get home. You wait and see."Rihanna called her assistant and left a message saying, "I am on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there."Brown then replied, "You just did the stupidest thing ever. I'm going to kill you." According to the report, Brown continued to punch Rihanna, bit her on her ear, her fingers and put her in a headlock -- she almost lost consciousness."
What a piece of crap Chris Brown is. I'm just not convinced Rihanna will allow justice to be served. She obviously is suffering from Battered Woman Syndrome. The biggest obstacle she needs to overcome is the feeling that she needs to fix the situation. Blame always falls on the victim, in her own mind. "If only I hadn't said that...if only I hadn't read that text on his phone...". When in fact, it shoudl be, "if only he hadn't HIT me"/
