    Her incomprehensible action so far is a further slap in the face of battered women everywhere.

    I think there may be three reasons why she did that.

    1) She's too in love with Chris Brown and love is blind.

    2) She's afraid of him.

    3) She has the typical delusional thinking of women - "I can change him", "He will change".

    I think it's both 1 & 3.

    Sadly enough, this is her own choice and hopefully there won't be a day she will regret it.

    I have no sympathy for battered women who stay with their abusers. I think they should be convicted of massive stupidity and prohibited from reproducing so they don't pass on their stupidity.

    And the court should throw the book at that guy. Or let some angry women beat him with baseball bats.

    Women should quit thinking they can change men. They come that way and they aren't gonna change. If they say otherwise, it's to get the gals into bed

    If Rihanna wants to be a human punching bag, we should step back and let her deal with the consequences of her stupidity.

    This is an assault case and even if the victim doesn't press charges, it is the prosecutor/state's role to brings the charge forward. (The police forward the incident report to the prosecutor and then the prosecutor charges or not depending on what s/he thinks can be proven based on the facts.) Perps are charged all the time in cases where the victim does not want them to be charged. It not the victim's choice. It is structured this way so that perps cannot intimidate victims into refusing to "press charges."

    Victims can refuse to testify, and sometimes that will result in the prosecutor bargaining the case down or dropping charges. But victims can also be forced to court with a subpoena -- what can't be controlled is what they stay on the stand. And Rihanna might just be stupid enough to say nothing or lie to protect the bf.

    Let's not jump to conclusions here. Maybe she just fell down the stairs.

    It would be very strange for Chris Brown publicized an apology statement just because his gf fell down some stairs.

    Perhaps he built those stairs by himself.

    maybe he didn't want rihanna to feel stupid for falling down those stairs, so he set up this elaborate beating story complete with police reports. wow, how noble! let's all stand up and clap for chris brown.

    yeah, chris brown will be like "um, she put her face right on my fist, I wasn't fast enough to take it away"

    Just answer every question like that and he should be ok.

    The only reason why CB beat Rihanna up because he wanted to be dominant and in control of her. Jealousy might have played a role too.

    There's such a rumour? Then maybe she patched up with him for revenge... to give him herpes again or some other new funky disease.

    That's what rumors are unconfirmed statements. Unless Rihanna comes out and announce the reason why CB beat her up is cuz she gave him herpes. Then I'll believe such a thing.

    Anyways, the rumor is that Jay Z gave Rihanna herpes.

    Hahhaha.....

    If females want rights, then they should fully get their rights. Like what the hell, why force her to testify if she doesn't want to?

    People should stop educating their children about Rhianna as a role model then. And stop blaming society for everything and misconceptions on the view of women and abuse.
    ok

    I don't see how people can consider them as role model if their private life suck. Generally, I would say the private life hollywood stars are far worse than educated middle class people.

    Well this topic is a bit old, but Rihanna did testify against Chris, and she did speak up about the issue recently, so I guess it was too early to judge her actions.
