We have been hearing about the alleged assault of Rihanna by her boyfriend, Chris Brown.
Singer Chris Brown has been charged with felony counts of assault and making criminal threats. If convicted, the sentence could range from probation to four years and eight months in prison.
Chris Brown has said he he’s sorry
“Robyn F. [Rihanna’s real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty] turned to face Brown and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand,” according to an affidavit, “He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. The assault caused Robyn F.’s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle.”
Singer Rihanna, through her lawyer, asked a judge not to prohibit her boyfriend, singer Chris Brown, from having contact with her while he faces felony charges of assaulting her. She has also been seen in public with him.
In 2005, 60 Minutes ran a profile on Tina Turner.
Tina finally got the strength to leave him in 1976. In her autobiography Tina detailed the years of physical abuse that she suffered from Ike, abuse graphically documented in the 1993 film What’s Love Got to Do with It, starring Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett.
The violent history with Ike left hidden physical scars long after their divorce. Did cosmetic surgery play a part in her remarkably youthful appearance?
“It’s a difference in cosmetic surgery and corrective surgery, right? Let’s talk about cosmetic for beauty. I have had, basically, my face bashed in, and I never did anything about it,” she says. “I just went through my life because I was all right. And then I started to have problems traveling with my sinuses, and I found that how my nose had healed many times,” Turner explains.
Turner says Ike busted her nose “many times.”
“But it was never really, really broken, but, I guess, damaged to a point that it started to heal and the healing process started to interfere with the sinuses. So when they went in to correct it, I ended up with…another nose,” she says.
PHYSICAL ABUSE IS NEVER OKAY!
According to Broken Spirits.com
This section talks briefly about some traits and characteristics commonly displayed in an abuser. Although these traits do not apply to each and every single abuser, they do apply to a majority of them.
An abuser is not always a man
An abuser is not always the product of an abusive childhood.
You can not always spot an abuser “from a mile away”. In fact, many former victims can tell you that they would have never suspected their abuser until it was already too late.
An abuser is not restricted to inflicting only physical pain. Most times, the psychological damage far exceeds the physical damage.
Denial: In many cases, the abuser will act as if nothing happened, in order to excuse his/her behavior. If they do admit their actions, it is always the fault of the victim. They justify their actions by claiming that they were provoked.
Abusive men and women tend to feel inadequate and depressed. Abusive men and women generally come off to the outsider as arrogant and overly self-confident. This is in fact a defense mechanism they use to hide their dislike for themselves.
Jealousy and possessiveness: An abuser feels jealous and over-possessive of their victim. They often demand to know their victims whereabouts at all times, get insanely jealous at the slightest hint of someone else getting any of their victims attention, and become very hostile at the thought of losing their “property”.
