New details have emerged relating to the altercation between singers Chris Brown and Rihanna.  The altercation ended with Chris Brown being booked on a felony criminal threat charge.  He posted $50, 000 bail and was released the same day he was booked.A source close to the couple told People that, “Chris knocked her around,” and she ended up with a “black eye, blood, bruises. She had to be treated by a doctor.” A police source confirmed the statement. Rihanna suffered a black eye as well as  “a swollen split lip and two red and purple contusions on either side of her forehead.”

She is apparently cooperating with detectives on the matter and the case is expected to be handed over to the district attorney’s office in the next day or so. Once there, Brown is likely to be charged with additional crimes. The actual charges eventually filed may change depending on Rihanna’s willingness to forgive Brown. “Prosecutors back off somewhat when they see a couple trying to work out their own issues,” says Steve Sitkoff, an L.A. defense attorney.

The incident has cost Brown the opportunity to participate in the NBA All-Star Game events this coming weekend. News of the alleged assault stunned fans and friends alike. Brown, has a reputation as a “good kid,” so for many the news was shocking. The abuse allegations will likely have  a long-term negative impact on his career. In addition to his NBA All-Star Game cancellation, he has been suspended as the Doublemint spokesperson.

Brown’s behavior has hurt his career. Instead of promoting himself and his career, he has become a hindrance to it. You need to make sure that the actions you take do not hinder you. You need to do positive things that serve to advance you and your career.
