And the news just keeps on coming and coming in this Rihanna-Chris Brown assault mess.
Word from tmz.com is that law enforcement sources have said that the fight (well, really beating because I don’t know how many licks Ri-ri got in but Chris seems to have gotten in more) between the couple was caused by a text message that Chris received from a woman while he and Rihanna were driving home from Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party.
Law enforcement sources confirm to TMZ Chris Brown received a text message from a woman while he was driving with Rihanna and that’s what started the confrontation that left Rihanna battered and bruised.
We’re told the text message was from a woman who wrote about hooking up with Brown later.
Tsk. I guess that was almost inevitable, wasn’t it? Not the beating obviously, but the signs of straying. Two such hot young people only just getting the opportunity to explore their youth and hotness is a combustible enough combination for regular folk. When you add the factor of their being basically on their own with no parental supervision that is an even more volatile situation, leading to premature domesticity and kids trying to act like old married couples when they’re really young and hormonal – trust me we’ve seen it – UWI anyone?
Worse, when they are besieged by sexual offers all the time because of their fame and their teen idol/sex symbol status – it could only end in tears.
Ending in blows, however is something else altogether…
In other Chrihanna bust up related news, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has sent back the evidence which the LAPD sent to them today. Apparently, they want the LAPD to work on it more as they feel there is not enough evidence to charge Chris with at this point in time. Eh? you may say. Apparently they are trying to get him on a whole set of charges including domestic violence, battery etc so they need the evidence to be strong. I thought a buss face was strong evidence but I ent no legal eagle…
In other islandista news (yes, there is actually other news), we have some pics of islandistas and islandistos on the red carpet at various Grammy weekend events. Had them for a while but this Chrihanna bust up has been taking up a lot of time - every time you turn your head, there’s a new ‘development’.
Up and coming Bajan singers Shontelle and Hal Linton both hit the New Era party with Akon.
Love Shon’s hot pink skirt, not fond of the black camisole. And you’re still too thin hon – please put on a leeeetle more weight.
Actually like Hal’s look, even the extra-pointy faux-hawk which is shocking since I DESPISE the trend of faux-hawks – it has generally gotten out of control but Hal rocks it well here – looks funky and like he’s doing ‘him’. Good church boy that he actually is, he’s probably really doing what the label advises him to do but at least it has the appearance of being individualistic.
Estelle hit up the gifting suite before the Grammys. Again in an outfit that you will either love or hate. I’ve decided to just embrace Estelle’s choices – she’s a London chick after all so she’s always going to be a bit edgy and off.
And before the madness ensued, Rihanna rocked a very cute blue dress on the red carpet at the Verizon/Blackberry pre-party.
