Picture of Rihanna after Chris Brown beating leaked

Well I'm officially turned off by Terrence Howard now. Ugh. Kimora Lee Simmons and Ray J...don't even know who that is, also released statements that didn't set that well...kind of the same vein as "this is stuff young lovers go through." In their defense, they said it before the pic was released, proving what happened to her went beyond Brown possibly just defending himself.

Chris' mother's ex-BF used to beat her up. He talked before how that scarred him to hear his mother get beaten down and how he would never be like that.

ETA: Also, usually as adults, they know that what they saw and witnessed was wrong, but its VERY hard to stop the cycle of abuse...espically when you witnessed it as a child.

I'm also going to take the unpopular route here...because I want to hear his side of the story. Not so much that I want to hear what Rihanna might have done to cause this (because honestly, I don't think she did anything nor do I think that anyone deserves it) but I want to see where dude's head is at. I seriously hope he enters some type of treatment program and gets the help he needs so that he can stop the cycle of abuse.

Another unpopular opinion...but I don't think he deserves to be locked up and the key thrown away. He's 19...which is basicly a BABY. I think he needs extensive counciling and therapy (acutally, I think they both do). Rihanna and CB had a very adult relationship for them to be sooo young...and I'm not so sure that they had adults around that were not on thier payroll to really guide and direct them. Young, rich, famous, no adult guidiance....they were sitting on a powder keg. I'm just sorry that it ended up this way....but I knew that when it ended...it was gonna be BAD.

She has numerous bruises on both sides of her face. He must have been repeatedly hitting her. Who knows how many other bruises she has on other body parts too. I hope the rumours of her taking him back are false and also that he doesn't go on some talk show sob a bit and get the public support back.
She looks WAYY worse than I thought she would. I thought this story was made to sound worse than it was.


CB completely just screwed up his career over this.
Just heard that Chris Brown got his first statement of support. From Terrence Howard. Here's what he said:

"It's just life, man. Chris is a great guy. He'll be alright," said Howard. "And Rihanna knows he loves her, you know? They'll be alright."
Um...

On the other hand, she's in a terrific position to help other young women in the same position by having that picture seen and talking about it.
. Yes, but I think she needs to take care of herself first. That's the best thing she can do to be a role model for other girls in this position. That, and not get back with CB.

I agree, but he needs to feel this in the wallet. I hope his sales suffer.

^^^Very true. We're products of our environment. In many ways, we end up mirroring our parents; IOW we become polar opposites disgusted by their behavior.

It depends on the individual. Some children of abuse will grow up to be abusers; some will grow up to be abused, some will do neither.

Oh wow poor thing!

When I heard about it, I heard he choked her and no bruises and/or marks were made and the reason why he went to jail was because she called the cops. Her face looks terrible! (because of the bruises)

Regardless of what environment Chris Brown came from, hitting and beating her up like that isn't OK. Just because you come from an effed environment, doesn't exempt you from doing bad things. He's just as bad as any other criminal, REGARDLESS of his background. He needs some counseling if that is the case. And he still deserves to have his ass in jail. He did a crime, he deserves to be punished.

Poor girl. To have her picture displayed for everyone to see like that...that must be awful for her. I hope she doesn't go crawling back to him after this.

I find it hard to believe he's never done this before to Rihanna or other women possibly. Maybe it was never this bad before.

As for his career being over.......I don't know. R.Kelly was on trial for child molestation, and while he wasn't charged, he has a known history of being predatory, and his career wasn't affected at all. But I think because Chris was being marketed as this somewhat squeeky clean performer that it'll take some time.

He needs counseling and rehabilitation. They both do. I don't think jail will do him any good. He's still a teenager whom was also a victim of abuse. He should have gotten help YEARS ago because it's possible that had he gotten help, *maybe* this wouldn't have happened.

But that's NO excuse, he should know where he's sticking his candle. I hope he stays locked up.

Actually....now that I think of it, if my husband gave me an STD without telling me he had one I would try to find a way to castrate him.

When I was young, our next door neighbor's husband gave her herpes. And he was laughing about it!!!!!

This is why couples that plan on being active should get tested together.
