Rihanna’s friends say that they were worried about her back in 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. (Us Mag)
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.”
But, Chris’ sister Lytrell Bundy tell Ok Magazine that he is not violent:
While he remains out of public sight, Chris Brown’s family is coming to his defense after his arrest on Sunday for allegedly making criminal threats to his girlfried Rihanna and reportedly hitting her.
“He’s always been a good boy. Never violent,” Chris’ sister Lytrell Bundy tells Extra.
As for how Chris is coping right now with the frenzy of activity surrounding his arrest and subsequent realse on $50K bail, his sister says he’s okay.
“He’s doing good,” she says. “He’s coping… He’s doing as to be expected.”
Here’s a vid of Chris on the Tyra show discussing domestic violence…it’s bootleg as hell, so prepare yourself:
Yesterday, reports surface that Rihanna would not cooperate with the police and was withholding the reason as to how the fight started with Chris, but last night she finally spoke up:
A source close to the investigation tells E! News exclusively that Rihanna has alleged to police that Brown choked her while threatening to kill her and, subsequently, she lost consciousness.
They began squabbling after leaving Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party late Saturday. Shortly after midnight, things blew up. Brown pulled his silver Lamborghini to the side of a street in L.A.’s Hancock Park neighborhood. That’s when, per the source, Rihanna grabbed the car keys and tossed them out the window, sending Brown into a rage.
He tried in vain to find the keys, then came back to the car, put his hands around her neck and, according to the insider, said, “I’m going to kill you!”
According to the source, the 20-year-old “Disturbia” singer told police that she lost consciousness, and when she awoke, Brown had fled.
According to the source, her right eye was blackened and badly swollen and she had hand prints on her arms. The responding officers were so concerned about her, they drove Rihanna to the hospital in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance.
Officers took two sets of photographs of the banged-up singer, one at the scene and the second after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment. Those photos were presumably among the evidence presented to the district attorney.
In other new Rihanna’s grandmother says that she is doing well:
Rihanna’s grandmother says the singer wants to make sure the people of her native Barbados know she’s “OK.
“I don’t want people to worry. Rihanna is fine and she is doing well,” Clara Brathwaite tells Barbados’ Daily Nation newspaper.
Brathwaite denies that Rihanna — who intends to travel back to Barbados to be with her family — has a broken nose.
Well here’s Rihanna side, and we gave you Chris’ side yesterday. Who do you believe?
