Rumors are the biggest issues right now with this entire case. Everybody wants to know what happened and everything under the sun has been assumed. We all know you can’t assume what you don’t know. With that being said, a few of the many rumors are that Rihanna gave Chris Brown herpes; another is that Chris Brown left the party to be with another woman and Rihanna knew about it and started an argument. Most recently their saying that another female did have something to do with it, in regards to a phone calll from a female Rihanna doesn’t like or “booty call” text message that Rihanna saw. However, I think this is all ridiculous and doesn’t justify anything. Until I hear from the sources mouth, meaning Chris or Rihanna, then I’ll make further allegations.
However, Chris Brown and Rihanna’s careers have both been impacted by this incident at this point. Brown has already been suspended from his Wrigley Doublemint Gum campaign earlier this week. He has been dumped for Valentine’s Day according to TMZ, Brown was set to host two separate parties in Scottsdale, Arizona this weekend for the NBA All-Star festivities and has now been replaced by rapper Nelly. “Got Milk” has also released a statement in regards to Brown’s arrest and allegations:
“The Milk Mustache campaign is taking the allegations against Chris Brown very seriously. We are very proud and protective of the image of the Milk Mustache campaign and the responsible message it sends to teens. Mr. Brown’s ad was launched last fall and is scheduled to end this week.” Source: TMZ
On Tuesday, EW.com reported that “Sesame Street” said it was dropping all future re-broadcasts of Brown’s August 13, 2007, appearance on the show singing a song “See the Signs” with Elmo and teaching some dance moves.
According to Cleveland Plain Dealer, WAKS FM 96.5 in Cleveland announced that they pulled C. Breezy records from their on-air playlist until further notice.
After the alleged incident the phones exploded,” WAKS nighttime DJ Java Joel said in a press release. “It’s all that people wanted to talk about. They were outraged at this alleged behavior and wondered why we were continuing to support his music. I agreed and immediately pulled all Chris Brown songs from my show until this thing shakes out in the legal system.”
Station program director Bo Matthews of 96.5 kiss FM reportedly decided to pull Brown’s music off the station entirely until this boils over. “It appears that Chris has made some poor choices, we are following the lead of our listeners, and we will not be supporting Chris Brown on 96.5 Kiss FM in Cleveland until the alleged situation gets resolved,” Matthews said.
Rihanna, who is doing “fine”, according to her grandmother, and “doesn’t have a broken nose” that has been previously reported; RiRi has canceled her Thursday performance in Jakarta, Indonesia, People.com reported. On Tuesday the singer postponed a concert that was to take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Friday. Promoter Pineapple Concerts says that the Malaysia show has been rescheduled for an unannounced future date. Source: mtv.com
Celebrities are shocked and some very upset of what has happened, whether their in either singers’ defense. T.I. told Carson Daly that he’s spoken with Chris since the incident and he said, “I spoke to him today. He’s cool, you know. He’s a little concerned about the situation, but he’s still the same Chris. I told him, ‘This too shall pass,'” the rapper said.
T.I. has been set to serve time in jail in March said, ” we’re celebrities, we’re entertainers, but we’re still human—all of us. Don’t expect us not to make mistakes, because we will.”
The “Love Lockdown” rapper, Kanye West appeared on the Ryan Seacrest’s 102.7 KIIS FM radio show on Tuesday. He said he is “devastated” by reports.
“[Rihanna] has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time and, in that sense, I feel like that’s my baby sis and I would do any and everything to help her in any situation,” said West. “It should never come to that place,” he told Seacrest.
via eonline.comIt has been said that this is not the first time Chris and Rihanna have gotten into it physically. Rihanna has stated that she and her brother used to fight and she hit one of them with a glass bottle upside the head. Chris should have watched his back from the jump!
Jay-Z is another one of several other celebrities that had a lot to say and different opinions on Chris and Rihanna’s alleged incident.
Jigga said, “It’s not a sound byte, this is a real situation. You have to have compassion for others. Just imagine it being your sister or mom and then think about how we should talk about that.”
In addition to commented on RiRi, “I just think we should all support her. She’s going through a tough time. You have to realize she’s a young girl, as well. She’s very young.”
According to Bossip, Jay-Z apparently had more to say and alleged stated, “Chris is a walking dead man. He messed with the wrong crew.”
Actor Terrence Howard told Hollywood.tv that the alleged attack was, “just life man. Chris is a great guy. He’ll be all right. Rihanna knows he loves her. They’ll be alright. Everyone has just got to get out of their way.”
Chris Brown has been silent and that’s what worries everyone that his career will fail. Chris stated that he and Rihanna had offically broken up at a meeting he called for close friends and family in L.A, although Rihanna’s dad seems to worry that she won’t leave him.
Rihanna has broken her silence and came out of hiding Thursday before her birthday she was spotted at an L.A. airport.
I still can’t believe this picture is real, at least not 100%
On Friday (her 21st birthday), Rihanna released a statement via her spokesperson:
“At the request of the authorities, Rihanna is not commenting about the incident involving Chris Brown. She wants to assure her fans that she remains strong, is doing well, and deeply appreciates the outpouring of support she has received during this difficult time.”

Chris has also released a statement about what occured, ” Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person. Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writing under my name are frauds.”
Family and friends of both singers have been making statements all over radio stations and in magazines about how they feel about the incident. A friend of Rihannas’ told Us, “I mean, damn, her eye’s black and the sides of her face are all f—-d up,” the friend told Us. “But she keeps saying she still loves him.”

“She hums sometimes, but she’s more quiet than I’ve ever seen her,”
Rihanna visited a hospital the Friday five days after the incident between the two. “It was because of the endless headaches she’s been having since Chris hit her,” the friend said.
“The doctors were concerned about the contusions on the sides of her head.”
Recently, Chris Brown’s stepfather called in to IPower 92FM to clear up rumors of his abusive past. He claims that he never put hands on Chris’s mother Joyce and that the story was fabricated. He also described Chris as an angry and hyper child. Later, Chris’s aunt was very upset with his stepfather for going on national television and told lies for money. His aunt stated:
On Chris Brown:
“He isn’t worried about the endorsement deals or the fame. That doesn’t phase him. That’s not the problem. It’s just him being made out to be a monster that he’s not. That bothers him more than anything else.”
On keeping quiet at this point:
“Politics are Politics and no one is allowed to say this or that but I am just sick of everything. You know the kid is being killed. He’s still a kid and he’s not a bad person at all. Chris is a very loving person to everyone that knows him. Everybody makes mistakes. He would never attack anyone just because. And he doesn’t justify what he did but he would never [inaudible] I think of him as my kid (starts crying) Everyone is killing this kid and he is devastated. No one knows his story. He can’t speak his story because of political bullshit but they will bring out his story probably today or tomorrow. We are not trying to bash Rihanna or anyone but they are two kids in a relationship and things happen. It’s totally one sided…”
“He’s very passive of someone ridiculing him or doing something. He’ll sit back and sit back but a person will only sit back for so long when someone is doing something to him. It’s always two sides to a story and just know that Chris Brown would never attack anyone for no reason. It doesn’t justify anybody doing anything but it’s a one sided story. Every day it’s a new lie. There is something different added to the story that makes no sense at all. [Like the herpes situation] That is just totally crazy that makes no sense and we don’t even know where that came from. Someone obviously made that up and it had nothing to do with anything. That is so false. It’s just really killing me that the media circus is killing everything that he’s worked so hard for.”
