Chris’ Stepfather: I’m Not Surprised At the Felony Charges + Cops Dust Chris’ Lambo

- By Bossip Staff

More details emerge….Chris’ Stepfather, Donelle Hawkins, is speaking out on his behalf about the Chrihanna fiasco and wants to set the record straight on his “abusive” past:

CHRIS BROWN has taken another hit in the wake of his reported attack on girlfriend RIHANNA on Sunday (08Feb09) – the singer’s former stepdad has confessed the damning story does not surprise him. Brown attacked his mother’s ex in a magazine article in 2007, claiming he was a terrifying force within the family. Brown told Giant magazine, “He used to hit my mom… He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself. “I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, ‘I’m just gonna go crazy on him one day…’ And now Donnelle Hawkins is having his say after Brown was charged with making criminal threats following his Sunday morning fight with Rihanna. Asked what he thought about reports his former stepson had attacked his girlfriend, Hawkins tells, “I wouldn’t be surprised,” adding, “He has to take responsibility for his own actions.” And Hawkins is using the interest to dismiss reports he abused Brown’s mother. He adds, “There was a lot of arguing between his mom and I (but) I never raised a hand at his mom. “I spanked Chris one time. I became the bad guy. Chris was really mad at his mom for leaving his dad, so I became the scapegoat. No matter how much I tried to be a father figure, nothing worked.”

The cops have dusted Chris’ Lambo for fingerprints:

We’re told the black dirt all over the car is residue from when the cops searched it for fingerprints. Brown reportedly abandoned the Lamborghini after his alleged altercation with Rihanna on Sunday morning.

This entire ordeal is just plain craziness. Peep the video below detailing the events below.

    Chris’ career is so OVER!! It is sad because he is a talented brother, but I do not see how he can make it back from ‘beating a woman’ This country doesn’t take that shit too lightly. He needs to start talking soon for damage control or there will be no return from this. Very sad for both him and Rihanna! Very sad indeed!

    DESPITE ASSURANCES that Rihanna is fine, developments yesterday pointed to the Bajan superstar as the alleged victim in the domestic violence investigation involving her boyfriend Chris Brown. Brown is expected to be charged today., quoting a unnamed source as saying that “Chris knocked her around”, reported that Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton said he expected the case would be handed over to the district attorney’s office today and that prosecutors could charge Brown, 19, with more offences.

    Brown turned himself into police on Sunday for making criminal threats after getting into a heated fight with a then-unidentified woman in a vehicle in Los Angeles that day.

    While police refused to officially release a statement indicating the victim’s identity, new images and documents suggested Rihanna was at the centre of the claims.

    According to, crime reports indicated the victim’s name as Robyn Fenty, Rihanna’s birth name. also said Brown was photographed behind the wheel of a rented Lamborghini with Rihanna in the passenger seat after the pair attended music mogul Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy gala in Beverly Hills on Saturday, a few hours before the alleged incident. also reported that the couple were seen Saturday night at the Beverly Hills Hilton, about five miles from where the incident took place at 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

    Other online media reports stated that the 20-year-old had postponed her concert in Malaysia this week, while concerned family members, who declined to be identified, said she was “recovering” and her parents were trying to get her back to Barbados.

    Efforts to get a comment from producer and writer Evan Rogers, who gave her the audition that got her the fairytale deal with Def Jam back in 2005, were futile. He said he could not comment because of the “sensitive nature of the issue”.

    But other sources close to Rihanna said she was recovering and the whole situation was “just awful”. “We’re all in shock!,” one woman said.

    The Los Angeles Times, NBC and other media organisations reported that Rihanna’s family were making plans to fly the singer back home, and that she had suffered two “huge contusions on both sides of her forehead, a bloody lip and bloody nose”.

    Brown, who has a double-platinum record, is free on $50 000 bail, but neither he nor his attorney would speak about allegations that rocked Sunday night’s Grammys ceremony at which both were nominated but neither attended.

    The fight occurred after midnight on a quiet block in Hancock Park, where Brown had stopped a rented Lamborghini he was driving. According to police, several people saw or heard a loud, violent confrontation.

    Brown has already begun to suffer commercially since Wrigley, the makers of Doublemint gum, yesterday suspended an endorsement deal in which he dances and sings a version of the gum’s jingle.

    “Wrigley is concerned by the serious allegations made against Chris Brown. We believe Mr Brown should be afforded the same due process as any citizen.

    “However, we have made the decision to suspend the current advertising featuring Brown and any related marketing communications until the matter is resolved,” the company said in a statement.

    Rihanna, herself, has declined to comment to the media and it is now believed it was not her who called police, but a passer-by who heard shouting coming from Brown’s car.

    Brown is due to appear in court on March 5.

  • Swag-a-licious

    Homeboy…you don’t have any business putting your hands on anybody else’s son. The only child you are allowed to spank is YOUR child(if you choose).

    I blame CHRIS’ MOM for letting another dude beat her child. Women need to be SMARTER and not subject their kids to abuse just because THEY LIKE GETTING THEIR A$$ BEAT BY THEIR MAN!!

    “Stepdaddy” was just beating everybody in the house….No Wonder Chris is confused.

    However, Chris is a grown man and he DOES have to take responsibility for his actions. He OBVIOUSLY knows that hitting women is wrong…but he resulted to violence(whether he was on offense or defense) anyway…

    It’s like men who hate their fathers for not being there for them…..and then leave their own d@mn kids

  • Sickofitt!

    @ There was a lot of arguing between his mom and I (but) I never raised a hand at his mom. “I spanked Chris one time

    Yeah, he never raised a hand to her, he raised his fist. Shame on him for spanking Chris.
