Rihanna was performing in the UK on her Diamonds World Tour when the singer went “Whack-a-mole” on a fan who grabbed the 25-year-old pop star.

Rihanna was reacting to a fan who grabbed her arm as she was walking by.

In a YouTube video, the singer can be seen walking around the front row during her Birmingham performance, when an excited fan grabbed her arm, Rihanna tried to pull away but the fan wouldn’t give up her arm. That’s when RiRi turned around and rapped the fan on the head and then continued on.

It’s not clear where exactly the “Unapologetic” singer’s swing struck, but unconfirmed reports say it landed in the head or face area.

According to the Daily Mail, Rihanna had already upset concert goers after arriving late for her performance due to a night of partying with model Cara Delavigne.

The Barbadian singer’s fans should know better than to mess with her. After all, she was able to handle Chris Brown during their very public and tumultuous relationship.

RiRi should expect a bit of legal fallout over the incident.

The 25-year-old pop star posted the close-up of her finely honed, barely covered rear, with a caption telling everyone that she was on the set of her new music video.

Rumor has it this was a pot-shot at her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

Earlier in the week Brown and Rihanna were going after each other in a battle of tweets and Instagram photos, with Rihanna posting a photo that read, “If I drop all of my hoes for you and we still don’t work out you owe me some hoes.”

Reuters reports that Chris Brown and his attorney met with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Brandlin in private chambers on Friday to discuss allegations that the R&B singer cut corners on his community service.

In early February, Judge Brandlin order the 23-year-old to appear on April 5 (Friday), in order to give the prosecution time to evaluate the evidence Brown originally submitted confirming his community service. However, the prosecution is still collecting evidence and requested additional time, so the judge order Brown to appear back in court on June 10.

The community service was a result of his assault on fellow singer and girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was assigned 180 days of community service and five years’ probation. The community service had to be manual labor, such as roadside cleanup. He requested to perform the community service in his home state of Virginia.

According to Brown he logged 701 hours in seven months, leading prosecutors to question the validity of his documentation. Previously, on another unrelated charge, he had taken two years to complete the same amount of time.

The prosecution investigated his log of service and has not been able to validate his community service hours. They charge that Brown falsified documents and are seeking to have him redo his service in Los Angeles County. According to Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray, their investigation “provided no credible, competent or verifiable evidence that defendant Brown performed his community labor as presented to this court.”51HUvlYAxnL

Brown continues to have anger management issues and problems with women in general. Most recently he went on a rant about women while performing at the Emerson Theatre in Hollywood.

In a video posted on TMZ.com, Brown told the audience that a man should keep a woman in her place. We won’t quote it all here since it was pretty crude. Suffice it to say he told the crowd, “So every person in this motherf**king building, if you got a bad b**ch you better say that sh*t to her, or she might f**k another n*gga.”

Let’s see, there was that valet attendant Brown threatened after the attendant, of all things, wanted to get paid.

Oh yeah, what about that little brawl between Brown and fellow artist Frank Ocean a couple of months ago? Ocean ended up dropping the charges.

And who can forget that minor incident involving Brown throwing a chair through a plate glass window while being interviewed on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” this after being asked a question about him punching Rihanna.

Anger management issues?

We’ll have to wait until June to learn the fate of the angry Chris Brown.

Chris Brown goes on a rant about women as he tells the men in the audience to essentially put the b*tches in their place.

We’ll get to that in a bit, but first we here at Celebrity Examiner would like to thank the rapper for his offstage antics and overall bullying mentality.

Without the boy genius we wouldn’t have anyone to poke fun at.

Yes, we here at Celebrity Examiner can make fun of the pop-star because we are well outside the reach of his screaming outbursts, lanky arms, and his entourage of angry bodyguards.

This rapping ball of energy has been on probation since 2009 after assaulting fellow pop-star Rihanna.

And yes he continues to struggle with anger management issues.

So let’s break down his behavior while on probation leading up to his recent dump on women.

Community service
As a result of his assault on Rihanna, Brown was assigned 180 days of community service and five years probation. The community service had to be manual labor, such as roadside cleanup. He requested to perform the community service in his home state of Virginia.

Anger Management
During an interview in 2011 on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America,’ Brown was asked about his punching Rihanna. He responded by throwing a chair through a plate glass window.

More recently, Brown got into a scuffle with Frank Ocean in what was initially called a brawl. A few days after the altercation Ocean declined to press charges, leaving officials with no choice but to drop their investigation into the allegations that Brown struck Ocean.

Just last week Brown was taped threatening a valet after attending a charity function. Brown came to get his keys and the valet informed him there was a $10 charge. Brown responded the only way he knows how, “Gimme my keys … we gonna turn this whole spot up … I promise you,” he threatened.

Problem with women
While performing at the Emerson Theatre in Hollywood last week Brown went on a rant while onstage. Not just any rant either, one pointed specifically at women and their place in a relationship.

In a video posted on TMZ.com, Brown told the audience that a man should keep a woman in her place. We won’t quote it all here since it was pretty crude. Suffice it to say he told the crowd, “So every person in this motherf**king building, if you got a bad b**ch you better say that sh*t to her, or she might f**k another n*gga.”

Conclusion
Will making comments like this cause Rihanna to rethink their relationship?

Will he finally have to face his anger management issues, or will his celebrity status win the day?

Maybe Lindsay Lohan and him should pair up?

The 23-year-old Brown has a lot of growing up to do, so stay tuned. We think we’ll have plenty to write about in the months ahead.

Chris Brown chased by paparazzi crashes Porche

Chris-BrownYesterday the Grammy Award winning Chris Brown totaled his car while being “ruthlessly pursued by paparazzi,” that according to his representative.

The singer was driving to a Symphonic Love Foundation event in Los Angeles when two vehicles cut him off. “The occupants jumped out with cameras and aggressively approached his vehicle,” Brown’s representative said in a statement, “In an effort to remove himself from the situation, he began to back down an alley, at which point he was cut off by two additional vehicles.”

Beverly Hills police questioned Brown after crashing his black Porsche into the wall Saturday afternoon. “Brown stated that he was being chased by paparazzi, causing him to lose control of his vehicle,” police said in a statement.

This is just the latest incident involving celebrities and paparazzo.  In January a photographer was struck and killed by a car while attempting to take pictures of Justin Bieber in his Ferrari. Bieber was being ticketed for speeding and claimed he was being chased by the same photographer who was killed.

On Friday rock legends Steven Tyler and Mick Fleetwood convinced a Hawaii Senate committee to approve a bill designed to protect celebrities or anyone else from intrusive paparazzi.

The so-called Steven Tyler Act was approved after the rockers said they wanted to fiercely protect what little privacy they have as public figures. The bill gives people the ability to sue photographers who take photos or video of their private lives in an “offensive way”, such as using telephoto lenses or other advanced equipment to record them on their private properties.

Chris Brown has been in the news quite a bit recently when he was in a fight with Frank Ocean, and then again when the L.A. District Attorney’s office questioned documentation submitted by Brown that he completed his community service in Virginia.

 

 

 

Chris Brown shows up to court with Rihanna

Chris BrownAccording to TMZ, Chris Brown returned to court today with girlfriend Rihanna in tow as he faced allegations that he failed to complete his community labor sentence for the beating of Rihanna in 2009.

As the troubled singer entered the courtroom Rihanna blew him a kiss. After the brief hearing the two newly-reunited lovebirds were seen leaving together.

Prosecutors are alleging that investigators were unable to find any credible evidence that Brown completed his community service. In a motion filed Tuesday the prosecution also focused attention on several past incidents that demonstrate Brown’s ongoing anger management issues.

The prosecution cited a recent fight between Brown and fellow singer Frank Ocean, and a 2011 incident when Brown threw a chair through a window after he was asked about his beating of Rihanna while being interviewed on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

When Brown pleaded guilty to the attack on Rihanna, Brown requested to serve his 180 days of community service in his home state of Virginia. It was stipulated that he had to perform manual labor such as roadside cleanup.

According to Brown he logged 701 hours in seven months, leading prosecutors to question the validity of his documentation. This was due in part that he had previously taken two years to complete the same amount of time in another case.

“This inquiry provided no credible, competent or verifiable evidence that defendant Brown performed his community labor as presented to this court,” Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray wrote.

Brown supposedly spent time waxing floors during the night shift at the Tappahannock Children’s Center, a day care center his mother used to serve as director and he had spent time as a child.

“Claims that the defendant cleaned, stripped and waxed floors at that location have been credibly contradicted,” prosecutors said in the filing. This was after L.A. investigators interviewed the floor cleaner of the day care facility, contradicting Brown’s claim.

Murray wrote in the filing that Brown’s service was “at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting.”

Superior Court Judge James Brandlin scheduled another hearing for April 5 and required Brown to meet with his probation officer within 48 hours to discuss the matter.

Sheriff’s officials have backed down from seeking charges against Brown in the recent fight with Ocean, mainly due to Ocean declining to press charges, leaving authorities with little to go on.

Rihanna talks about her relationship with Chris Brown

20130129-rihanna-1176-306x-1359491519Rolling Stone Magazine today released an excerpt from an interview with Rihanna about her relationship with Chris Brown. Telling the magazine that, “Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake.”

In the latest issue due out Friday, Rihanna talks all things Chris Brown.

When talking about her reconciliation with Brown, who in 2009 was arrested for assaulting her on the eve of the Grammy Awards, she said, “I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” she tells Rolling Stone contributing editor Josh Eells, “I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”

Brown plead guilty to assault for the 2009 incident, performing community service, he remains on probation. “When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world,” Rihanna says. “You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about sh-t. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”

According to Rihanna, if Brown were to display a hint of his past behavior towards her, she is ready to walk. “He doesn’t have the luxury of f–king up again,” she says. “That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”

However cozy their relationship has become, Browns anger management still remains in question after Sunday night’s brawl that took place outside a recording studio in North Hollywood with Frank Ocean. While the investigation continues Brown is adamant that he wasn’t involved in the altercation.

Posting a photo on Instagram of Jesus on the cross, Brown posted, “Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!” Soon after posting the photo Brown made his Instagram account private posting, “Social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I’m detaching myself from that world”

Good luck Rihanna!

 

Rihanna Hospitalized

I guess Rihanna didn’t want to be left out after Aerosmith’s frontman Steven Tyler took a nosedive in a hotel shower last week.

Not to be outdone, the 23 year old singer was taken to a Swedish medical institution yesterday and hooked up to an IV drip.

Rihanna is currently in the middle of her world tour and was to perform in the city of Malmo, but had to cancel. She tweeted an apology to her fans as well as a photo of her arm with an IV drip connected to it.

According to Rihanna she came down with the flu. A representative of Live Nation stated that she was “.  .  .  not in any condition to conduct a concert.” She was expected to continue her tour as scheduled.

Rihanna’s not the only one coming down with the flu. George Michael recently had to cancel the start of his comeback tour in London’s Royal Albert Hall due to a viral infection.

 

Rihanna was recently named the world’s sexiest woman alive in their November 2011 issue.
