How Chris Brown Assaulted Rihanna
Rihanna was pictured bruised and with a split lip after Chris Brown attacked her in his car in 2009. The fight started when Rihanna spotted Chris Brown with another woman.
She then found a message from her on his phone, which led to them “arguing and arguing and arguing” in the car, Brown said.
“I remember she was trying to kick me. It was just her just being upset. But then I really hit her. With a closed fist, like I punched her and it busted her lip. And when I saw it I was in shock. Why the hell did I hit her?
“From there, she just spit in my face, spit blood in my face, so it enraged me even more. It was a real fight in a car.”
He said he realised it was a “petty, stupid fight” and pulled over, and Rihanna drove home on her own.
Of the police picture of Rihanna that showed her injuries, he said: “I look back at that picture and I’m like, ‘That’s not me, bro’. I hate it to this day.
“That’s going to haunt me forever.” Chris Brown narrated.
Eminem out of ignorance, had sided Chris Brown.
