More details have emerged in the Chris/ Rihanna battery saga.

While authorities will not identify the woman involved, citing confidentiality for victims of domestic abuse. Several outlets – including the Los Angeles Times – have confirmed the victim as Rihanna and reported that she remained hospitalized later Sunday with massive injuries sustained to her face.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a source close to the investigation has said that Brown was driving Rihanna in his rented Lamborghini through the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles, as published reports have stated, when the two began arguing for reasons that are still not clear.

Tensions escalated and Brown stopped the car on North June Street. The couple got out and Brown allegedly struck Rihanna more than once in the face, leaving her with enough wounds to warrant a hospital stay, according to our source. We were told that Brown ran off on foot after the alleged beatdown and took the car keys with him, leaving Rihanna stranded at the scene.

A witness called 911 shortly after midnight, but Brown was long gone when officers arrived. Police said Rihanna suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.

According to the rumor mill, Rihanna's camp made authorities and hospital workers sign a confidentiality agreement forbidding them to share any information about the case.

Radar Online reported that a source inside Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where Rihanna was reportedly taken following the incident, said the singer became emotional when two female “assistants” went to visit her at the facility.

“Rihanna was clearly very upset by what had happened and I could hear her screaming,” the source said. “Rihanna was trying to get her point across about something, she sounded like she was crying as she tried to get… her point across.”

GV Says: Such a sad situation for both of them.
