Chris Brown Involved in Previous “Domestic Violence” Incidents With Rihanna


Just after Chris Brown was formally sentenced to five years' probation on Tuesday for beating Rihanna, has obtained a new report that claims the 20-year-old singer was involved in two previous "domestic violence" incidents with his ex-girlfriend before their February encounter.

According to a probation officer's report filed with the court for Brown's sentencing, the incidents "related to domestic violence."

The first incident allegedly occurred in Europe three months earlier when Brown and Rihanna were in a "verbal dispute." She slapped him, and Brown responded by shoving her into a wall, the report stated.

Just three weeks before his February arrest for beating and threatening his ex-girlfriend after the Grammy Awards, the former couple was in Rihanna's native Barbados. While driving, they had an argument. According to the report, Brown got out and broke both the driver's and front passenger side windows. No one was injured, and the incident was not reported to authorities.

In connection with his February attack on Rihanna, Brown was formally sentenced Tuesday to five years' probation and was ordered to complete 180 days community labor to be personally supervised by the chief of police in Brown's hometown of Richmond, Virginia.

He must personally come to court every three months during his probation. The first appearance will be Nov. 19.
