Both Chris Brown and Rihanna canceled their performances at the 2009 Grammy Awards. Replacing them was a duet of “Let’s Stay Together? by Justin Timberlake and Al Green. Ironic though coincidental choice of songs in these circumstances.

That same night, February 8, 2009, Chris Brown was arrested. The arrest was confirmed by LAPD and caught on tape by TMZ. However, as per law, the victim’s identity is not released as anyone involved in an incident of domestic violence is entitled to confidentiality. He was later released from police custody after posting $50,000 bail.

According to police reports, officers responded to a 911 call at around 12:30 a.m. An unidentified woman who appeared to have been beaten identified Brown as her attacker. Brown was not found at the scene.

There was no confirmation or denial from Rihanna, only a vaguely worded statement from her publicist: “Rihanna is well. Thank you for your concern and support.”

Along with the aforementioned Grammy performances canceled. The singers had last appeared together Saturday night at the star-studded Clive Davis pre-Grammy party in Beverly Hills. Both of the chart-topping, internationally known singers are quite young; Chris Brown(“Forever”) is 19 and Rihanna (“Disturbia,” “Don’t Stop the Music”) is a few days away from her 21st birthday. Prior to this disturbing incident they had been the delight (and paycheck) of paparazzi with their occasional episodes of public affection, charming coyness and matching tattoos. The story is developing.

UPDATE: Several news sources have gathered eyewitness accounts and photographs of Chris Brown’s arrest–after voluntarily surrendering himself at LAPD’s Wilshire station around 6:30 p.m. where he was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats, and released upon posting $50,000 bail–and of Rihanna’s trip to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

A police officer Sgt. Bridget Pickett reportedly spoke highly of Chris Brown: “He was very professional and didn’t appear to have injuries…He’s a good looking young man.?

Meanwhile an eyewitness at the medical center saw Rihanna arriving at the ER back entrance on a gurney accompained by two LAPD officers. Her face was covered by a hooded sweatshirt and she was wearing sunglasses but the eyewitness was later able to clearly see her and recognize her.

Rihanna was clearly very upset by what had happened and I could hear her screaming. Rihanna was trying to get her point across about something, she sounded like she was crying as she tried to get to put her point across.”

“Her staff was also very shaken by what had happened. Later on I saw one of the assistants crying into the shoulder of the security guard. I left at 4pm, happy to get out of the place, something terrible had clearly happened to Rihanna.”

According to reports, Chris Brown is still under investigation for felony charges stemming from the alleged domestic violence incident and is scheduled to appear in court on March 5, 2009.

UPDATE: TMZ has released the real Rihanna injury photo. TMZ

    Ok I think the crazy broad did it to herself, any body remember the rumors of her and Jay-Z then all of a sudden it was her publicist doing and it never happened I think he told her he was tired of her insecurities and wanted out of the relationship and this is her way of getting back at him and this is a publicity stunt so that she looks like the victim and not the crazy BLEEP she is.
