Family to Rihanna: Dump Chris Brown!

by at . Comments

In the aftermath of the alleged beating at the hands of Chris Brown that left her badly injured, Rihanna's family is reeling, having never seen it coming.

Several family members have spoken out from her native country of Barbados, where the singer traveled after the violet incident two Sundays ago.

Brown "flew so far under everyone's radar that we just didn't think he was that [abusive] type," a relative tells People magazine in its new cover story.

Chris was arrested February 8 for allegedly assaulting Rihanna in Los Angeles.

He was booked on suspicion of criminal threats, having (according to her) told Rihanna he would kill her in addition to leaving her bruised and unconscious.

He has not been seen since, but issued an apology through a spokesman, saying he sought therapy. Rihanna was said to be unmoved by the vague statement.

What Have I Done?!

Brown will likely face charges from the L.A. District Attorney. The question is what kind - criminal threats carry a longer sentence, but are more difficult to prove, so some believe a felony assault / battery charge is much more likely.

The turn of events comes as a shock to Rihanna's family. "[Chris] was always looking after her needs," says another relative, "making sure she was happy."

Rihanna, who turns 21 on Friday, and Brown, 19, were a "perfect match," an MTV veejay who knows both music stars said. Now their future together is unknown.

But as far as her father, Ronald Fenty, is concerned, his daughter should "move on." A relative agrees: "I don't want her to go back to him. I don't think anyone does."

Look "ladies"... No man should EVER hit a woman..ever. It's wrong, and it is hurtful and destructive. I was 21 when my boyfriend clocked me and broke my jaw... I did not deserve it. He was jealous and wicked and did not want my career in modeling to succeed. He won. I had my jaw wired and wore braces for 2.5 years. But I got away after a terrible struggle to recover, physically and mentally. NO MAN no matter how cute, is a real man who should get away with hurting a woman and they have issues. My man was Roger Moore (Not the actor, some punk ass kid from Atlanta) NEVER takes sides with an abuser....and mercy on you if you do. But guess what??? I did ok and had the COURAGE to get out. Hope Rhianna will do the same and educate girls about it. And I hope Chris Brown apologizes and gets help. Best of luck to all... "Survivor"

Only while driving across from the party did he find out that she gave him something?

No matter what happened (short of her giving him a STD) he had no business putting his hands on her. Even IF she did give him a disease he shouldn't have hit her. I could see him being mad as hell -- anybody would have blown their stack in a case like that. There are 3 sides to the truth, his, hers and the real truth. Only she, him and God knows what happened. Everybody stop talking smack and just pray for them both.

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
