The Los Angeles Times says the 911 call alerting police to the alleged assault involving Chris Brown and Rihanna may be an important key in the investigation.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the unidentified person who phoned was unaware of the couple’s celebrity when he or she reported the violent altercation, which took place around 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the ritzy Hancock Park section of Los Angeles.
At press time, detectives were still investigating the case and had not turned it over to prosecutors, who will decide whether to file charges against Brown.
The 19-year-old was arrested Sunday on suspicion of making criminal threats and was released on $50,000 bail. Rihanna, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, was taken to the hospital with “visible injuries,” according to authorities. The artists were nominated for Grammy Awards Sunday and were scheduled to perform, but both pulled out of the ceremony at the last minute.
From the moment the story broke, rumors have been ferocious regarding what led to the altercation. Some blog sites are reporting that Brown became violent because Rihanna had given him a sexually transmitted disease. Others claim Brown was upset because Rihanna reportedly left Saturday night’s Clive Davis pre-Grammy bash for a while to talk to another man.
The severity of Rihanna’s injuries has also been the subject of unconfirmed Internet reports, including rumors that she suffered a broken jaw in the alleged scuffle.
Brown’s arraignment is currently slated for March 5. On his Web site, fans are taking a wait-and-see attitude before making their judgment. On Rihanna’s site, though, some have already made up their minds.
“Send the right message to your fans to leave any boy who would hit you,” one poster tells Rihanna. “He does not deserve you. I will never buy another of his CDs regardless.”
