This is one of the strangest stories I’ve ever heard. The internet is buzzing like crazy with news that Chris Brown is being investigated for domestic abuse against an “unidentified woman.” Chris Brown and Rihanna had been seen together earlier in the evening at a party so everyone is asuming that the unnamed victim is Rihanna.
“The identity of the victim will not be released,” said Officer April Harding. “Any victim who’s involved in a domestic violence incident is entitled to confidentiality.”
Officer Harding added: “If police locate Brown, yes, he’s subject to arrest.”
Both Rihanna and Chris Brown were scheduled to perform at the Grammy Awards this evening but both canceled saying the two were involved in a car accident. WTF?! It seems that PR for the stars are trying to spin this situation into a car accident since RiRi allegedly has visible injury on her face.
A rep for Rihanna released this statement.
When asked about Rihanna’s well being, her rep told PEOPLE, “Rihanna is well. Thank you for your concern and support.”
