He will appear in court today to face charges for attacking his girlfriend, Rihanna.
The L.A. County DA has just hit Chris Brown with two felony charges, including assault and making criminal threats.
The 19-year-old singer is set to make his first appearance in a Los Angeles courtroom today at 3:30 PM where he'll be arraigned.
The charges stem from an incident that occurred the night before the Grammys. It's been widely reported that Brown's girlfriend, 21-year-old singer Rihanna, was the alleged victim. Now court papers confirm that Brown is charged with the assault of victim "Robyn F." Rihanna's real name is Robyn Fenty. In addition, a photo of a battered and bruised Rihanna surfaced online two weeks ago.
According to FOX 11 in Los Angeles, which claims to have obtained the
notes from a search warrant in the case, Rihanna, 21, read a lengthy
text message from a woman on Brown's phone, which led to an argument.
Brown - who has a standing court date Thursday - allegedly tried to force his girlfriend out of the Lamborghini, and hit her head against the passenger window.
Brown, 19, then punched the singer while still driving, according to the detective's notes, and blood filled Rihanna's mouth. He allegedly told her, "I'm going to beat the ---- out of you when we get home." 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." The police notes say that prompted Brown to reply: "You just did the stupidest thing ever. I'm going to kill you."
The report also says that Brown bit Rihanna and put her in a headlock, and that she almost lost consciousness.
Rihanna's dad, Ronald Fenty, opened up to Us Magazine right after Chris Brown was charged earlier today. "Justice can never be served in this situation; he can't feel the pain she felt," he says.
Her father says the family is having trouble getting in touch with Rihanna. "I can't get on to her," he says. "Her mother can't get on to her, her brother told me she changed her email. Somebody has a stranglehold on her. I'm lost. I'll text the old numbers she had, and I call them. One girl answered, and she said, "'This is not Robin's number anymore.' I asked, 'Do you work for Robin? Do you deal with Robin?' And the girl hung up, so I don't know what's going on anymore. I'm lost."
