Chris Brown Assault Account Released; Rihanna's Family Can't Reach Her

  • New details on Rihanna: The warrant detailing the entire assault has been released, her family says she’s changed her contact information, and her rep isn’t denying that she and Chris are engaged.
  • A search warrant affidavit based on “Robyn F.”‘s statements was filed to obtain cell phone records for Rihanna, Chris, and one of Rihanna’s personal assistants. The report alleges that Chris beat Rihanna while driving and tried to push her out of his car. Rihanna called her assistant during the attack and pretended to tell her, “I am on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there,” but she got the assistant’s voicemail. Chris said: “You just did the stupidest thing ever. I’m going to kill you.” The report says he put her in a headlock and she almost lost consciousness. You can read the entire document here: [The Smoking Gun]

  • Roseanne Barr wrote another lengthy blog post about Rihanna and Chris Brown. She says that Rihanna is sending out the message through her publicity team that she provoked Chris so he’s not to blame. “I just know from experience that this is how show business works to conceal and excuse domestic abuse,” she says. “I also know from experience that it is common that the woman throws the first insult or punch. the big dirty secret is that violent men are with violent women and vice versa. They continue to stay together so they can continue to be violent, break up and then make up, involving all their families and their friends in the whole sick and stinking charade. They both need to go to jail, if in fact she did hit him or terrorize him psychologically. I lived through this crap, and I know how it goes.” [The Life Files]
