As I'm sure most of you have heard by now, Chris Brown was arrested (now currently out on bail) for allegedly attacking his girlfriend, Rhianna.
This incident raises many issues. First of all, domestic violence can occur for anyone, including celebrities. Second, Chris Brown is 19 and his girlfriend, Rhianna, is 20; both very young adults. Furthermore, in accounts by the media of the alleged assault, it is frequently commented that they appeared to be happy together, a typical observation made of couples going through abuse.
The trail is set for March 5. In the meantime, Rhianna is laying low with her family and most of Chris Brown's ad sponsors including Wrigleys and Milk have pulled their support until the matter is settled in court.
