Disgraced R&B singer Chris Brown has made his first statement following the alleged beating he doled out to superstar girlfriend Rihanna - he posted an update on his private Facebook page, according to the N.Y. Post, which reads as follows:
"You'll begin to see her true colors. Believe it!"
Brown's comment appears to suggest Rihanna is partly to blame for the alleged attack - which she says was not the first in their relationship and ended in his arrest Sunday on charges of battery and making criminal threats.
As if it weren't obvious after inflicting horrific injuries upon her (or so the police report says), the troubled Brown appears to have confirmed his split from the Barbados-bred beauty by changing his relationship status to "single."
As for what triggered the attack, rumors are swirling that Brown had been cheating on Rihanna and that a "booty call text message" sparked a heated argument as the couple drove back to their L.A. hotel prior to the Grammy Awards.
The text message reportedly angered Rihanna, who lashed out about it, only to have Brown attack her. She then faked a call to the cops and threw the keys to his rented Lamborghini out the window, further enraging him and leading to more violence.
The melee ended with Chris Brown fleeing the scene on foot, leaving Rihanna beaten and unconscious and in need of hospital treatment.
Brown, who posted $50,000 bail and had been holed up at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas before leaving yesterday for an undisclosed location, awaits word on whether the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office will be pressing charges.
So far, L.A. police have booked him on suspicion of making criminal threats, although that may not stick. A felony battery charge is a lock, however. Meanwhile, there is no word on Rihanna's whereabouts since the incident.
