TMZ reports the text message was a booty call.
A source close to the investigation tells E! News exclusively that Rihanna told police Brown choked her while threatening to kill her and she eventually lost consciousness.
The NY Daily News reports the 911 call came from someone who lived in the Hancock Park neighborhood.
TMZ reports Brown allegedly hit Rihanna so hard with his fists, her eyes were almost completely swollen shut in the police photos. Rihanna reportedly had a fat lip, bloody nose and contusions on her forehead and sides of her face.
A friend tells Us Weekly Rihanna's relationship with Brown was 'volatile' and that the songstress had bruises in December.
Brown's stepfather tells Access Hollywood he's not surprised to hear about the assault accusations.
Brown is reportedly already feeling the fallout from the incident. Wrigley suspended his Doublemint ads, his "Got Milk" campaign ends this week, and several radio stations are refusing to play his songs.
What the El!?! Editorial:
This thing is a straight up mess.
And am I the only one who thinks it odd that he's accused of choking Rihanna out, and he sang a song with Jordin Sparks called "No Air."
"Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?"
"If I should die before I wake, it's 'cause you took my breath away"
It would have been worse if it was a duet with Rihanna because of the line:
"But somehow I'm still alive inside, You took my breath, but I survived, I don't know how, but I don't even care"
