Chris Brown arrested after beating up Rihanna. Holy shit.

Chris Brown is under arrest

R&B singer Chris Brown was arrested in L.A. yesterday after beating the shit out of his girlfriend Rihanna earlier in the morning in the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles. Accompanied by his attorney, Brown turned himself in late last night and was booked on one felony count of “making criminal threats.” Both Brown and Rihanna canceled their appearances at last night’s Grammy Awards. From the Los Angeles Times:

Brown and Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, were apparently in a car together and got into an argument on North June Street, according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement. Brown stopped the car, the two got out, and the argument escalated, according to police.

A witness called 911, but Brown was gone when officers arrived at the scene. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker, according to police. (Source)

Perhaps the weirdest thing about this story is that Ryan Seacrest was the first person on the scene — even before the police. He’s reporting that Rihanna looked “absolutely radiant” in her ripped and bloodsoaked Versace gown. He adds that she attempted to defend herself from Chris’ flurry of kicks and punches with a “stunning” Balenciaga clutch.
