Report: Chris Brown surrenders to LAPD; released on $50,000 bail reports R&B singer Chris Brown was released from LAPD custody after posting $50,000 bail on Sunday night. Earlier in the evening, according to the report, Brown turned himself in for questioning in connection with a police investigation into charges of a felony battery that took place in a car early Sunday morning.

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.

Earlier today, sources backstage at the Grammys told EW that Brown and fellow Grammy nominee and girlfriend Rihanna canceled their  appearances at the awards show following a car accident. Shortly after, Rihanna’s publicist issued a statement, saying Rihanna was "well" and thanking fans for their concern and support.

Stay tuned for more details as they develop.

    Wow, is this story insinuating that Rihanna called 911 for Chris Brown beating her?

  • JS

    Yeah I can’t figure out if Rihanna is the unknown female that TMZ is talking about…

  • Wow

    Putting it all together, it appears Chris Brown assaulted Rhianna to the point where her physical scars are so severe that she is unable to perform. Sad.

  • Lisa

    I don’t believe Chris Brown would hurt anyone, and why would he just leave someone at the scene especially if it was Rihanna.

  • mel

    this story is very confusing…first it was a car accident and now its domestic violence….
    why is every outlet that is reporting the story posting the story with a picture of chris & rihanna if she is not the victim???? very dirty indeed…

  • Dan

    Good reporting EW. You don’t know the difference between a car crash and an assault. Get it together.

  • Ellen

    CHRIS BROWN DID NOT COMMIT THIS CRIME! they dont even tell you what he did and he wasnt even there. it dosnt make any sense and even if he did, it must have been a misunderstanding or something.

  • sus

    ya! Chris brown was beating her or someone and they tried to cover it by using a car accident story, really if a car accident had accured it would of been reported by some police department

    How can he assault Rihanna when she was on stage at 12:30AM. Get it right! Stop keeping mess going!

  • *lg*

    check out and – there’s more info about this story there. It really does sound like he hit her. so sad.

  • metmom

    Another site reports that Rihanna was in a car accident and received facial injuries so was not able to perform at the grammy awards. Those injuries include bruises. It went on to say that Chris Brown and “a woman” were fighting in a car around 12:30 am and they pulled over. Both got out of the car and the argument escalated to where the woman was injured by him and he left the scene. Put two and two together.
