You knew it would come out eventually. And now, thanks to papers filed by the LAPD, we can finally know what led to the argument which spurred Chris Brown to act like an idiot and beat up Rihanna. According to Entertainment Tonight, here are the crazy details:
Around 12:25 am, Rihanna answered Chris' phone and read a three-page text message from one of his previous girlfriends. They then engaged in a verbal argument that quickly escalated into an alleged violent attack by Brown. He pulled the rented car over and unsuccessfully attempted to push Rihanna out of the car, causing her injury as she struck the window. Chris repeatedly punched Rihanna in the face with his right hand while continuing to drive and steer the wheel of the car with his left hand. As a result of the punches, Rihanna's mouth began to fill with blood, which spilled over onto her clothing and the interior of the car. Chris then threatened Rihanna, saying, "I'm going to beat the [expletive] out of you when we get home! You wait and see!" When Ri then placed a call to her personal assistant and pretended to reveal what happened, Brown said, "You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I'm really going to kill you!" Chris continued repeatedly punching Rihanna while he drove, biting into her ear and her fingers, holding her in a head lock and applying pressure to arteries in her neck, making Rihanna "unable to breathe" and begin to "lose consciousness." Rihanna tried to fight back by attempting to gouge Brown's eyes, and she also tried to stop him from continuing to drive recklessly, even pulling out the car's key from the ignition and sitting on it. Rihanna then began screaming for help, and Brown got out of the car and walked away. A neighbor who heard Rihanna's screams for help then called 911.
Wow! This is sad, maddening, unbelievable and difficult to read all at the same time. In court today, Chris Brown's attorney asked for a continuance in the trial, so he will now be arraigned on April 6, at which point he will have to plead either guilty or not guilty. Chris at least looked sharp as he showed up for his hearing today in a gray 3-piece suit, complete with vest and tie, but his case isn't looking so hot. I'll continue to keep you posted as new details emerge.
