Were you as taken aback as I was with the graphic details in the alleged Chris Brown-Rihanna incident that have been coming out? The beating may have been worse than those leaked photos of Rihanna's battered face ever even indicated. The Los Angeles Times is reporting things such as blood splattered on the interior of Brown's rented car and bite marks on Rihanna's ear and fingers. The Associated Press reports that:

 "According to a detective's affidavit, Brown and Rihanna got into a fight early Feb. 8 after the "Umbrella" singer checked her boyfriend's cell phone and found a text message from another woman. Brown pulled his car over and tried to push Rihanna out, but she was still wearing her seatbelt, Los Angeles police Detective De Shon Andrews wrote. He said Brown pushed Rihanna's head against the window, punched her with his right hand, and then continued driving while hitting her, the affidavit states. He also bit his girlfriend on the ear, the affidavit states...Andrews described Brown's blows as causing Rihanna's mouth to fill with blood. He also writes that Brown tried to choke Rihanna after she took the keys to his car away. Andrews wrote that Rihanna nearly lost consciousness but also tried to fight back while in the car, at one point trying to gouge at Brown's eyes."

When I read these kinds of specifics, it makes the alleged altercation seem even more violent and horrific.  And to think that Rihanna has supposedly reunited with him. Brown has been charged with two felonies and is supposed to be arraigned this afternoon. He'll eventually get his day in court to fight the charges. Meanwhile, I can't help but wonder what all the Rihanna bashers make of all this now.
