Lots of stuff has been said lately about the break-up and fracas episode between teen idols Chris Brown and Rihanna. Rihanna has reportedly claimed Chris Brown choked her until she was unconscious during an alleged assault on Sunday (02.08.09). Rihanna is apparently fully co-operating with police – who booked Chris on suspicion of making criminal threats – and has also alleged he threatened to kill her during the attack.
Rumor has it that the reason for Chris Brown to hit Rihanna (not that justifies violence against women) was because she gave him herpes and that she was jealous and overpossesive. And all this happened after the couple left Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party on Saturday Feb. 7. Photos of Rihanna taken after the alleged assault “clearly show contusions on the face, swollen eyes, cut lip, bloody nose, bite marks on fingers and arm,” TMZ said.
So what happened at the end? Well, Brown lost his Doublemint gum endorsement — turned himself in while the Grammys went on without him (Al Green stepped in for the duet with Justin Timberlake). Brown was released after posting $50,000 bail, but he is due in court in March. So the drama hasn’t ended yet. Too bad for these two teen idols. Their images have -no doubt about it- faltered.
Well, I guess no one except them knows for sure what really went on that night. No matter what a domestic violence episode is hard one to live with. Although we must be hold on judgment until the facts are revealed, an alleged assault of a woman can have potentially devastating implications for the 19-year-old heartthrob. I am talking about Chris Brown. After all, it blemishes the charming, wholesome image that fans know and love. So much for the Chris Brown brand. I am sure he must be having a hard time doing some spin control. Closure seems to be hardest thing when unfortunate events like this occurred. But hey don’t get all bogged down in the drama. They are young and I am sure they’ll bounce back. In the meantime, get on the groove and sing to their music now!.
