Pop/R&B singer Chris Brown was arrested yesterday and charged with physically assaulting his girlfriend, singer Rihanna.

Rihanna remains in a LA hospital where she is being treated for contusions and bite marks inflicted by Brown early Sunday morning.

The "Run It" singer is no stranger to domestic violence, according to this excerpt from a GIANT magazine article:

Like the day an 11-year-old Brown made a promise to his mother. He vowed that he would go to jail by age 15 for killing his abusive stepfather. "I just want you to know that I love you," he told her. "But I'm gonna take a baseball bat one day while you at work, and I'm gonna kill him." Brown's parents had separated when he was seven. When his mother remarried, she moved her son and his new stepfather to a trailer park. Then his stepfather shot himself in the head. The shot went straight through the eyes. He survived the suicide attempt but was permanently blinded.

"When you're blind, your senses are heightened, like your smell, hearing, your sense of touch," Brown explains. "You can move and maneuver around your sight. But he used to hit my mom. He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, 'I'm just gonna go crazy on him one day.' I hate him to this day."

    Let me find out Mr Brown is out of his mind.. im sure he was 'pushed' no excuse of course but dang growing up in that enviroment he may SAY he wont ever do it but he has it in his mind... those types can go either way

    still i wont throw chris under bus just yet... its more to story im sure

  • http://myspace.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    yeah his childhood could have a lot to do with i still dont see him actually hitting anybody

  • Anna

    Wonder how he feels about his stepdad now. You can't have that much hate and have a healthly relationship with anyone.

  • melinla

    You must feel like a real loser if you try and kill yourself, but do it wrong and end up blinding yourself. And how do you get your azz beat by a blind man??? I'm just saying...

  • Amulet

    Sandra, you are killing Chris Brown's image right now.

  • http://myspace.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    he kinda look like obama in that cowboy outfit lol

  • brwnsugga4you

    wow. very sad and tragic. still no excuse for trying to beat your girlfriend down...especially being a celebrity.

  • Richie Domino

    I like this lil guy. I hope he hasn't ruined his career or retarded it's growth. I know what he went through. I wanted to kill my stepfather.

  • miamore73

    I would be mad as hell if he bit me. You ever notice how big his teeth are. OH HELL NAW he couldn't get near me with those joker ass teeth. That alone is enough for assault.

    I thought the little cowboy looked like Obama too. I just knew somehow Sandra was trying to tie in abusive families and Obama.

  • starr

    The whole thing is just messed up.......

    There both young, i think they'll learn from it

  • SHANIASMOMMA

    the endorsements are already leaving ..just reported on yahoo.com: Wrigley suspends Chris Brown ad campaign

  • kitty4shigady

    Man people need to leave this alone everybody is making speculations. We don't know what happen I have heard so many sotires she was drunk and showing her ass she hit him and bit him first ir they was in the limo and he just hauled off and hit in the face. Man this getting to be too much

  • pinky2083

    I just saw that gum commercial during my lunch.. anyway I know there has got to be more to this story. I'm sure Rihanna is not purely innocent in this whole mess..

  • shunda

    @melinla
    I wondered the same thing when I watched the movie Ray. How does a blind man beat somebody?

    Chris must harbor a lot of anger. I blame my dad for a lot of the issues I have had in relationships. When you grow up around violence it takes a lot not to be constantly paranoid. However, I am not condoning anything Chris has done.

  • ReadTheBlog

    FUBAR... All he needed was the opportunity, the blueprints were already there.

    Poor Chris and Robyn and their careers! I'm willing to bet the women -beaters are going to pursue her hard, now. Every abusive man loves a beautiful successful woman, so that they can bring her down ever so publicly. Same for Chris. No woman of class is going to want to be with him now - not one that loves herself. Straight hood rats and former porn stars is all he's going to have to choose from.

    I hope they get some counseling...

    Aw, look at him in his cowboy outfit! Too cute. Anyway, he really needs counseling. He may have previous emotional issues that were not addressed.

    Correction, the person doing the complaining is the one claiming it isn't him. Like he's somebody who could be confused for Jamal Anderson even with the same name, lol.

  • Krysi J

  • iscream

    OFF TOPIC!

    Regarding the Ad Sandra has for online dating. Has anyone here ever done that? I know of at least two couples who have gotten married within a year or two dating online.

    I've always said if me and my s/o don't work out I may try it. I'm just from the days off meeting ppl online = desperate. Guess times have changed.

  • KaraZ

    If Rihanna is smart she's locked up with her spin doctors coming up with a strategy for salvaging her career by using this experience.

    Chris' career is now shot, hers shouldn' go down the drain with it.

  • Kymystry

    HOw Come .. robery Downey Jr.. can E'f up his life ... drunk driving cocaine possesion and use ... Tommy Lee Jones can "reportely" beat up Pamela Breast Implants Anderson ...and they have ongoing makin money out the wazooo carees and C-Breezy .. and Jamal Andrson are villified ? ? ?

    Oh yeah I know ... cause they ain't half white or named Barack Obama

    rollin eyes

  • shanie

    First of all I am gonna say:

    What's up Kym....hope all is well with you!!! My sincerest condolences to the passing of your mom...but there is calm after the storm.....

    Now to the Chris Breezy ruckus.....Sandra posted that there are bite marks to Rhianna now before I say this I am not saying that he is right for putting his hands on her but in order for you to have bite marks you have to had done something to get bit. I mean come on now when fighting I dont usually bite anyone but I will bite someone to get them off of me. Anyway from the reports we are getting here in LA Rhianna has been really rude lately and acting real DIVAISH towards her peers. More than likely this was provoked because she seems a little fiesty.

  • Kymystry

    Thanks Shanie .... :-)

  • Krysi J

    Chris’ career is now shot, hers shouldn’ go down the drain with it.

    ___________________________________________________________

    shyt me! If she gave that dude Herpes like they are saying, trust, people are going to sympathize regardless of whats wrong about him hitting a female. Hell, I think anybody would go to jail off some shyt like that...!!

  • iscream

    @ Kym (waving) hey girl :-)

    @ Shanie I told Sandra that I read a blind item about Rhianna's divatude & how nobody wanted to work with her. The report also said that she felt Chris would never leave her. Guess she didn't take 2 well if he actually wanted out.

  • shanie

    Hell I would want out too.....dang that. You walking around with bumps on yo lip and you want me to kick it. I would be cool too. Sounds to me like she is getting to be a mini Ciara.....

    The sad part is this is going to put a damper on his career. But what really kills me is after all was said and done and she filed the police report she started calling his phone trying to talk to him....is she serious? I can't stand these lil girls. You den called the police on me and now you wanna talk. I hope he is smart enough to tell his side.

  • KaraZ

    I can't believe that people are actually villifying the victim of domestic abuse, actually what am I saying? Yes I can.

    There's no proof that Rihanna gave Chris Brown herpes, he could have given it to her, they both could have had it prior to the relationship, maybe as children for all we know. Actually, the herpes thing doesn't exactly hold water, I mean he didn't get diagnosed in the car, to haul off and punch her dead in the face. You'd need a blood test to prove that a cold sore was in fact herpes, unless he has a lab somewhere in his backseat, I'm thinking it wasn't his realization that he had herpes that did it. Either way, he shouldn't be given a pass for physical violence.

  • Daisy

    Lawd have mercy is all I can say..lol I can't take it!

  • Krysi J

    Either way, he shouldn’t be given a pass for physical violence.
    --------------------------------------------------------

    man I don't give a damn....I ain giving him a pass, Im just saying Im not going to quit buying his records cuz he slipped up after finding some fukked up shyt like that out! Your right they could have had the shyt prior to and if so than the altercation occurred for different reasons. To be honest, these are young aZZ folk, who don't know shyt about love, and they were probably better off not trying to be so serious....Im just not going to hold that shyt against her or him...bottomline. They are too young for that and we don't know what happened...thats it for me. If it comes out that Chris just hauled off and hit the girl for some retarded aZZ reason ok, then I'll call'em a bytch for now I will remain neutral. I don't care who disagrees thats just how I feel, everyone makes mistakes and if she started the fight, and he didn't think to call the police on her before he knocked the shyt outta her afterwards....then NO im not going to hold Chris responsible for NOT THINKING! He's only 19, thats probably the first altercation he's ever had with a girlfriend he obviously didn't know how to react, and she didn't either if she started it. They are too YOUNG!

  • Amulet

    #5 My apologies Sandra, he killed it himself.
