UPDATE: (scroll down)

According to TMZ.com, Chris Brown was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon in addition to the domestic battery charges filed against him by one Robyn Fenty, aka Rihanna!

TMZ has confirmed Rihanna is the named alleged victim in the Chris Brown case and the allegation is that she was assaulted with a deadly weapon.

Law enforcement sources tell us the crime report calls the incident assault with a deadly weapon -- we do not yet know the nature of the weapon.

The crime report gives the victim's name as Robyn Fenty -- that's Rihanna's real name. [LINK]

This doesn't necessarily mean Chris Brown pistol whipped Rihanna (which would explain why she's still in the hospital).

In some rare cases, assault with a deadly weapon charges have been filed against people who are experts in the field of martial arts, and their hands can technically be defined as deadly weapons.

Didn't I read somewhere that Brown was into the martial arts?

UPDATE:

Now TMZ.com is saying there was no weapon involved.

The police report cites Penal Code Section 245 -- Assault with a Deadly Weapon. However, we're told there was no weapon involved.

  • Naima

    Martial arts LOL. Hey Sandra now is you chance Rihanna is single.

  • Shauny

    This doesn’t necessarily mean Chris Brown pistol whipped Rihanna (which would explain why she’s still in the hospital).

    *************************************************
    Really Sandra? Is that the very same reason you choose to go with the picture of a gun for this post. I can't wait for the police to make a statement.

  • Daisy

    This is getting out of hand 1st TMZ said he was only charged w/ making terroristic threats. Either way this is just a hot mess. Bless their hearts. Sandra we know RiRi's real name..lol

  • iscream

    Now she's in the hospital. That's the first I'm hearing of this.

    Can't wait to see what you say if they get back together. & since reports are saying she isn't pressing charges that's a strong possibility.

  • Daisy

    Per tmz..Stop it Sandra..lol

    Law enforcement sources tell us even though the police report in the Chris Brown arrest refers to assault with a deadly weapon, there is no weapon involved in the alleged attack.

    The police report cites Penal Code Section 245 -- Assault with a Deadly Weapon. However, we're told there was no weapon involved.

    We had been hearing there was an umbrella in the car -- which would have been the most ironic thing ever -- but again... no weapon is alleged.

    One law enforcement source who has been dead on so far claim Rihanna suffered contusions and bite marks.

    All too much in one day.. What a performance that Jhud gave.. OMG.. I'm gonna focus my energy on soemthing of substance...

  • brwnsugga4you

    i didn't hear she was in the hospital....i need a little more to go on that specualtion & assumptions at this point..before i can clearly comment. i hope none of this is true.

  • Shauny

    Daisy I don't know what I will do if the "deadly weapon" is an umbrella ella ella aye. I don't know if I would be able to contain myself. I will be hollering!

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Actually I just got done reading an LA Times article that quotes Chris as saying he studied martial arts and used it once to fend off multiple attackers at once. He made those claims as a 17 year old so who knows if it's true. They also quote him from the same article saying his step father used to beat the crap out of his mother and he hates dude to this day.

  • Daisy

    @Bird yes I said earlier Chris grew up watching his mother get the beat down and he said he would never hit a woman because of that in the same interview. He said he doesn't like to talk about it but he wanted his fans to know he has been through somethings and didnt/doesnt always have it made per say.

  • KaraZ

    Kumbayah my Lord, kumbayah!

  • Daisy

    @Brwn I doubt we ever find out what really happened that night. I think both PR teams will limit them to what they can say. The police can say what marks or what have you but my question regarding what the fight was over may never be answered. I agree this is way to much.

  • Daisy

    AMEN@Kara

  • Charles

    SANDRA thats a fucking lie there was no weapon and she has yet to press charges

    *WAITS TO SEE DOCUMENTATION*

    this story getting crazier and crazier but i just cant picture breezy with a pistol

  • missamerica

    All I know is Chris Brown just f'ed up his career. How many parents had to explain this to their little girls this morning? Its one thing when you don't know the woman, but it was Rihanna. On some straight Ike & Tina ish. It couldn't have been the first time the two of them got into it. This was too much for a first time incident.

  • Dhoward1913

    The funniest thing about the story is that Rhianna's PR team was on it ASAP. On Sunday prior to the wack ass Grammys, it was on MSN that he was assulted and that she was in a acr wreck. can anyone say DAMAGE CONTROL????????

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    I'm sticking with TMZ for the facts on this one. They are the only ones verifying their info rather than making junk up. Last night several of the black blogs were saying that they had a fight in the limo which is a complete lie. Then they came out with the herpes story. Now Sandra is trying to throw pistal whipping into the mix. These poor kids are getting hammered.

  • Daisy

    @Miss I was wondering the same thing since this fight was in public. I dont know many men who will wait until they are outside of their private qtrs to hit a woman for the very 1st time but then again he could have been defending himself as well. I am trying to wait to give my verdict until I can gather more info.

  • Daisy

    @Bird I co sign 100%.

    @Bird off topic. I am on the fence about CIAA this yr. I want to come but I am due in Chi town 2wks after CIAA. So we shall see.

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    That car wreck story was ridiculous. By the time I heard that lame excuse the fight story was already out. Everyone knew it was PR spin and really the statement only popped up on a few sites as the joke that it was.

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Daisy

    Well if you do come holla at your girl. Maybe we can have a drink or something. I know I'm an old fuddy duddy, but I've still got some fun and coolness in me. hehehe

  • Bubbles

    Wasn't Rihanna in a minor 'car accident' at the Grammy's last year as well?
    The one where she accepted an award with Jayz...

  • iscream

    @ Sandra can we get a non Rhi Rhi post going?

    I did hear lil kim & david allen was going to be on dancing with the stars. I guess Kim needs a check. First she signs off on that Biggie movie that she claims she didn't approve of & now this. Isn't this show for stars who fell off? I heard Kim Coles this morning saying how badly she wants to be on. My thing is the only person to get poppin after this show is Mario Lopez.

    I gotta say I ADORE TMZ!! Even when they are wrong they will not only correct themselves but show you why they thought the first notion was correct.

    On a side note, how is that they are able to get facts but these so called blogs who speak nothing but the "truth" aren't able to do so???

    TMZ must have LA on lock....they always have court documents, etc scanned and downloaded on their site before the ink has dried!!!

    I hate I have class tonight I will miss TMZ, ET, E News, Access etc. SHOOT!

  • teecee

    i became not interested when she didnt presas charges, this means their is something here she dont want to the people to know..... im wonder why they gave best rb to neyo and lord al green...... did the white grammy people not listen to any other rnb males songs ? or they went with the names they reconized

  • melinla

    Auntie you just got a shout out from Wendy Williams - I'm glad she acknowledged she got info from your site.

    I know these PR people are earning their money today!!

    I guess there really is a thin line between love and hate. Hope they are both okay.

    Emmit who?, lol. I know he a football player?... I only watched maybe once or twice & that was bc Toni Braxton was on there. Not saying D list but I've never saw a person with an active career within that year appear on the show.. Unless you count Susan Lucci. But as I said I don't watch the show. (I will now to see Kim)

    Thanks for the info.

  • ReadTheBlog

    Why do people think a deadly weapon is just a gun? A toothbrush can be deemed a deadly weapon, depending on the manner it is used.

    What happened with Amar’e Stoudemire's key to the city?

    Sandra everytime I see ur pic in ur avatar it cracks me up that u look like ur up to no good in the picture too.

    Re: pressing charges, I hope CA is one of those states that doesn't need a cooperative victim to move on with the case.

    Rihanna doesn't need to become a tragic battered starlet.

  • ReadTheBlog

    oh and I can't wait to see what Lil Kim will be wearing!!!

  • Amulet

    I kind of feel bad for Chris and Rhi, that their business is on blast like this. It too shall pass.

  • donnia

    I will say it again. I am really proud of Rihanna for pressing charges against Chris. Unlike many others who suffer in silence - Cassie, Kim Porter, Jennifer Lopez... - Rihanna stood up like a REAL lady. She is making Chris accountable for HIS actions. So many other women can take a lesson from Rihanna. I would LOVE to see Rihanna do a few PSAs to help other women understand violence against them at the hands of men they "love" is not their fault.

  • starr

    @ donnia

    yawn

  • starr

    This is the story that keeps on giving.......keepng bloggers on their Ps and Qs

  • shunda

    I can't help cracking up at the thought of Kim on dancing with the stars. She already likes to walk around half nude so the costumes shouldn't be that far of a stretch.

  • Krysi J

    WOW, PSAs against battered women....Chris' career is going to be OVER!! Will somebody please post what happened...this is so sad, and 2 people who are so young Chris is only 19 for GODs sake...I wouldn't want either of their careers to sour because of this (Rhianna = herpes??) (Chris = wife beater??)

    I think both of em will suffer because of this

  • Amulet

    The labels may be saying that Chris is not marketable anymore.

  • Daisy

    @Donnia she did NOT press charges against him..lol

  • iscream

    @ Amulet comment 38 I was wondering the same thing. I don't even remember the contest starting. It went away just as quickly as it was posted. Guess the promotors pulled out @ the last min.

    Anyway allstar weekend is this week anybody going?

    & don't forget BET honors come on tonight.

  • starr

    Where is everyone getting this info that she isn't pressing charges......I only go to a handle of blogs, and i don't see it anywhere

    Ditto.... This is a mess. She's not pressing charges, so it will be dropped, unless the prosecutor needs some shine for 09. Hmm, I thought her real name was Rihanna... Robyn, huh? Okay.

  • brwnsugga4you

    nice way to end your career at such a young age. no matter if she drops the charges or not. if there is any truth that he indeed beat her up...it's curtains.

  • iscream

    @ Starr Mediafakeout is reporting she won't press charges... so coming from them you never know.

    see, it's this kinda ish!! roflmbao

  • pinkscorpion

    ^^^^Probably. Someone told me in casual convo, but I see it plastered all on MTO.

  • Shauny

    Whether she presses charges or not I think Cali has the law where state can pick it up.

    I think that Chris will have the biggest hit in his career no matter what. He will be seen as the artist who beat up Rhianna now. A lot of sponsers will want to stay away from that kind of heat. Also, if Rhianna hit him wouldn't/shouldn't he also be filing charges against her? He didn't so that leads me to believe that it was more of a one sided incident.

    I mean he can't say he didn't want to be seen as a punk but what is he going to be considered now...a woman beater.

  • missamerica

    I second Shauny, it may not matter if Rihanna presses charges or not. Its too high profile and CB is a black celebrity.

    Wrigley has announced they are suspending his ad campaign. As soon as I read that, the commercial came on BET.

    There really is no excuse no matter what happened. If he grew up seeing his mom get beat and how that made him feel he should know and do better. But we all have to go through things we have to learn and grow from. He's 19, so there's still hope. I just hope Rihanna will be okay, she'll have a label attached to her as well.
