"Get out now!" Woman pleads with Rihanna

Posted by Ria, 17 Mar 09

Most batterers hit their victims below the neck … where the world can’t see the bruises of their victims. But the world saw Rihanna’s beaten face when Chris Brown (fellow Musician and boyfriend) assaulted her. Like most women, Rihanna is a victim of domestic violence. And like most victims of domestic violence, Rihanna is back together with her battering boyfriend Chris Brown and its rumored they are recording a song together. :roll:

Kristen Rambler, an abuse victim pleads with Rihanna to ‘Get out now!’ She is afraid that Rihanna/Chris Brown relationship might turn out to be as deadly as her’s did. “When Kristen finally summoned the strength to break up with her boyfriend Keith, he came after her with a gun. He broke into her parents' home and chased her down the street before catching up to her and putting the gun to her head… Seconds later Keith turned the gun on himself and blew his life away. ”

Kristen considers herself lucky to have survived (Read her full story on MSNBC). She tells Rihanna in the end, “… don't let it come to this. I know Chris has apologized and he's doing everything he can to make you trust him again and you think he deserves that second chance. Don't do it. It will only get worse."

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

    party1 no one wants a serious injury or death to happen to a loved one when they had the power to stop it. You have to take into consideration that, you as a person may have others that rely on you to provide for them, like a wife, children or some other loved one. God forbid you end up seriously hurt or locked up for assult and battery, how will that effect your ability to take care of your children or wife? You could miss time form work to recover from an injury or you may get fired because you were arrested and charged with a felony. In the mean time, where is this woman you tried to help? She's more than likely laid up with the same guy who kicked her ass in the first place. A former co-worker lost a six figure a year income with a Dept of Defense Contractor because he was arrested after coming to his sisters rescue. He was charged with assult/battery, he lost his GOV SECRET SECURITY CLEARENCE and as a result he lost his job. His sister moved back in with the guy, so much for trying to do the right thing, huh?

    "Like most women, Rihanna is a victim of domestic violence." This is a very dangerous and highly ignorant statement. A blaze comment with no basis in truth or any facts to back it up. In my eyes it undermines the credibility of the author and the veracity of the article - thus rendering it redundant. Which is a shame as it tried to tackle a serious issue.

    Kein Mann hat das Recht so mit einer Frau umzugehen. Auch wenn man jung ist und sehr emotional - das ist keine Entschuldigung. Sicher ist es manchmal einfach die Ohnmacht etwas ändern zu können an einer Situation. Aber es gibt andere Wege um Agressionen ein Ventiel zu geben. Niemals nie darf es gegen einen Partner sein. No man has the right as a woman deal with it. Even if one is young and very emotional - that's no excuse. Certainly, it is sometimes simply the powerlessness to change anything in a situation. But there are other ways to make an aggression Ventiel factors. Never never can it against a partner.

    VA-SongBird you have a point. Men should deal with the men within their sphere of influence, their friends, relatives, frat brothers and so on. It's something about not wanting to be an outcast amongst your peers or on the receiving end of a brotherly beatdown. Men should enforce the standards of manhood amongst eachother or should the women do it for us? Speaking for myself, I'm very protective of the women in my family and I've gotten involved in more than my fair share of altercations with the abusive husbands and boys friends of my female relatives. I've come to the conclusion that when a women is in love with a man, it's a waste of time to get involved. If you're not careful you could end up having to physicaly defend yourself from not only the abuser but the woman you're trying protect. I look back on all the fights and almost one shoot out and I think to myself, was I a fool for getting caught up in that drama, every last one of these women went back to their abuser, everyone! They didn't care that I could've gottten myself hurt or arrested. I don't know how many times I've helped some of the women in my family move out only for them to move back in. I hear alot of women tear down the male relatives of the abused woman for not helping her, yeah we have some cowards amongst us but most men wont stand for someone beating on they're female relatives. The brave ones who do get invloved risk alot trying to help and often times their risk is rewarded by her going back to her abuser. I understand from first hand experience why people don't want to get envolved with an abused woman and her drama. My attitude now is, "don't call me until you've been to the hospital and had your injuries documented and photographed and you've filed a complaint with the police and pressed charges"! I'll esscort you to the courthouse to file for a restraining order and I'll help you move out, after that I'm done with it. CarolinaQT was right, you're only a victim the first time he hits you, anything after that is on you! "First time shame on you, next time shame on me", this statement relates to domestic violence as well as infidelity! Ladies think about it!

    I personally do not believe that a woman should be able to beat up on a man and not expect to be hit back or at the very least, restrained. What makes a woman think that she can swing on a man and then play the "weaker sex" card when he knocks her on her tail. No, if you want to fight a man like a man then be able to take a punch like a man. It's ridiculous. Men hurt just like we do. Just because they appear to be bigger, have more muscle mass, be stronger, does not mean that they do not feel pain. It not only hurts them physically when the woman that they love hits them, but it hurts them emotionally too. I'm a woman and I wouldn't hit the man that I love, nor would I harm him physically to incite him to hurt me. Now, that does not mean that if I do NOTHING to him that I will allow him to strike me. Don't get it twisted. If he lays hands upon me without me laying hands upon him first...it's on. Do not see that as being hypocritical. I have simply said from the beginning that first lick deserves a lick back. Be it a man or woman who delivered. It should go both ways; don't hit me and I won't hit you. Let's give each other that respect.

    They're not back together and they did not record a song. Its sad when the main stream media is quoting blogs and tabloid magazines. the song "bad girl" was a demo they did for the movie "confession of a shopaholic" last fall. the pussy cat dolls recorded the song for the movie. what Chris did was wrong,but he's 19 yrs old: he made his first mistake, and everyone is out to lynch has ass. what these kids need is guidance. they have their whole life ahead of them

    Unfortunately young love is crazy. NO matter the age, women will endure so much to make a man happy. Sad to say the old saying "you can do bad by yourself", isn't instilled in young women and kept in their minds until old age. If Rihanna and Chris have made up it's a very typical thing, no matter what the world is telling this girl, she's not gonna listen. Thousands of women dye each year at the hands of a man all because "I still love him and he said he won't do again he can change". Can't change bad love, and you can't change bad people, but you always have the ability to change yourslef. Rihanna needs to take a que for her own song, Take A Bow, it's over now. Later peeps!

    Not only is Chris Brown an abuser, he is a lousy cheating SOB. Why was he receiving a three page text from some 40-year old woman with whom he has been rumored to be sleeping with anyway? he has the nerve to become violent over Rihanna being upset about it?

    Amen Homesteader. Thanks for the Kudos. Yes, I was raised in the country. I'm very familiar with switches (branches broken off of trees). Back then, this was referred to as discipline. Now, it is called child abuse. The only thing I can say when I look back on my upbringing is .... I straighten up my act, after only one "encounter". My mother never had to too much trouble from me. I think depending on the personality of the child, the parent has the right to decide the appropriate type of discipline. But I do believe, discpline should never be done, while you are anger or you might cross the line of abuse. Again... we're talking about managing our ANGER under every cirmcumstance. Whether that involves disciplining our children or resolving conflict with our partner, or colleague.

I turned the other Cheek and took it again before I reminded her as to my Heart condition which she had aforementioned knowledge of . I turned and walked away as to Strike a Female is in my own mind Unheard of . HAD SHE JUMPED ME FROM BEHIND as I was leaving , I would surely have restrained her without Laying a hand on her body in Anger . A Real Man does not Strike a Women .

    A follow up point !!! 1 punch,slap etc. 1 time can do serious damage.Women are built different (brilliant observation Party1 lol) and even a strong woman isnt a match for a man most times.My own personal plan to manage anger is to walk away ,,being a REAL MAN doesnt always mean you have to get physical with anybody man or woman.Easier said than done,,like I said I am not the one to be giving advice on emotions and reactions.But I do know right from wrong!!!!!

    Party1, I respect your opinion. I agree, let's keep it real. I do agree with your point that training must take place at an early age for both boys and girls. Parents must set an example in their homes as to what is acceptable behavior. Also, I think it is wise once a man or woman began to observe violent tendencies in their partner, to bring it to him/his attention and let this individual know his/her behavior is coming across as threatening. Party1, you also touch upon another great point. Women are capable of violence. I had a friend whose wife was the physical bully in the relationship. She was a large woman and her husband was a petite man. In order for my friend to defend himself, he was forced to hit her. I'm definitely not suggesting, abuse is gender specific. But the statistics suggest the majority of incidences reported are crimes against women. Perhaps, the men are too embarasssed to admit that they have been physically abused due to the social stigma attached to this claim. Whatever, the case might be. I think it is very important for every individual know when they have reached their BREAKING POINT. You need to know in advance, how you plan to manage your anger before a person press your BUTTON. I can't control you... but I definitely can control ME.

    In response to Va..Being politically correct around here is wise yet bein honest can be admireable to.I could never counsel other men on treatment of women.Never could I think of hitting a woman nor do I condone another man doing it.But the fact remains for some reasons women do push mens buttons and as I write this I have no answers for human behaviors why men resort to swingin or why women push men to swingin.A guy who does it or did it could justify it in his mind and it still wouldnt be a good enough reason.Many of us have seen a woman take a poke,swat or a BLAST and the guy took it and turned the other cheek.QT above said "love is a powerful thing" and thats so true,,jealousy and betrayal are overwhelming to some.What I am tryin to say here is,,the real MEN on this blog u refer to need the help from coaches,teachers ,parents and the entire process must start early in life and be constant.Sisters and brothers(siblings) cant be scratchin and pullin hair etc,I wonder now if corporal punishment or NO SPANKING is the right way to go,,hmmmm so very hard to know.A church I drive past has a sign "A child raised in the church seldom ends up in court" .Counseling I dont necessarily agree is meant for children but I dont think I agree that all men who have ever had domestic issues cant be rehabilitated and positively will do it again.I repeat my opening line being polically correct is great on a dating site but lets be honest there is areason or reasons we have this problem and just to say its terrible throw em in jail and losing sight of the next potential batterer is not solving the problem.

    The Syracuse Team Coach should be fired. I was watching Oprah yesterday and she had a show on "Men who've abused their partners". The main point, I received from the Show is nothing will change until the men in our community revolt against such activities. I really appreciate the real MEN on this blog who have stood against this type of activity. However, you must take it to another level by speaking up in your own communities or cirlce on influence when you witness such behavior.

    I agree that opinions about the whole Chris Brown/Rhianna situation should not be leveled until all the facts reveal themselves. However there is no good reason to put your hands on someone in anger whether you're a man or woman. . Woman can physically batter their mates too. Of course if you're defending yourself that's a different story. I agree with one of the previous posts, Rhianna will leave this particular situation when she's ready. No amount of prayers, messages of hope, or well wishes will change that. I just hope that this incident can be used to educate men and women about the dangers of physical abuse, preventatives, and recovery. The sad part is if these two were not celebrities this would be just another sad foot note in some newspaper if it would receive any media attention at all.

    They both need longterm separate serious counseling. Rihanna needs to stop it with the co-dependent I can't live without you, already.... ....but then that's why she needs couseling just as much as he does. You are right, QT. Some people have to learn for themselves.

I Look at this Picture again and can see if None of Us have the Power to Correct this Wrong Done to a Beautiful Ladie . He may be correct in What he says . At least One of us is a Coward for Abusing a Member of our weaker sex , And any that would freely Allow this to Happen . Truly Shows that " Chivalry is indeed Dead " when we are not able to Even Protect our own Women .

    Wow NoPlayer - you hit the nail on the head. I've been trying to figure out why on EARTH any woman would put up with abuse. But what you wrote makes a hell of a lot of sense. But abuse is sometimes more than physical, it can be subtle, too, in the way things are said or the way a man treats you. I wish both of these young people luck. Brown may very well wind up in jail and if you read that affidavit, and you see what Rihanna initially told the cops he did to her - it's heartbreaking. He beat her to within an inch of her life - so bad she needs plastic surgery to fix some of her injuries - they ones she's hiding under makeup. And I guarantee he will beat her again. It's sad, but we live in a free country and she can do whatever she wants - including stay. I just pray he doesn't kill her.

    Here we go again! I wont comment on Rihanna and Cris Brown because I really don't know the whole story. I will comment that people who are abusive are sick and in need of help but people that put up with being abused need MORE HELP ! Humans under normal conditions seek to avoid pain like animals avoid fire. We avoid things that hurt or cause us injury. Self preservation is the first law of nature and when you find a person who goes against that, you're dealing with a mentally ill person. Some people tend to come down hard on women that stay with their abuser but just as you don't hold the insane criminaly responsible, you can't hold a batterd woman to the same standard as you would a woman in her right mind. A woman that has accepted to stay with an abuser has lost touch with reality, she's not in her right mind, and her ability to reason and make sound judgment is impaired. Lets look at the abuser. He or she has also had a break with reality because under normal conditions you don't hurt those you love, normally we wnat to shelter and protect those we love from pain or injury. We risk our own well being to prevent harm from coming to those we love and if called upon, most would make the ultimate sacrifice and give their life for the shake of a loved one, that's normal, that true love. Something is seriously wrong when a person goes "left field" and harms or injures someone they claim they to love, so I look at it as a mental health issue. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not defending a guy who'd beat up his wife for mouthing off at him, when the foreman on the job had been talking shit to him all day long, why didn't he kick the foremans ass? That's who pissed him off in the first place! When you find a man that wont jump on another man for the same perceived disrespect but he'll beat the hell out of his woman, then you're dealing with a real PUNK. You find men with anger issues but those who are trully mentally ill will attack anyone that triggers an attack response and not just those they deem weaker or defenseless.

    I saw my baby sister going thru the same "milestones" that Rihanna will unfortunately travel unless she gets that Help now...and not later when it's too late. My sister didn't "see" the abuse for what it was... she also believed this was a part of true love....until the day her "man" started terrorizing her young sons... Today..they are all safe..well..and happy because he is out of their lives permanently. ( prison) If somebody is all about abusing others.. ...then the best spot for that person to be is in a jail cell...

    I know it sounds basic, but Love doesn't hurt and love doesn't hit. I think both of them have issues and need counseling while they are still young enough to change the course of their lives. They are equally responsible for this situation.

    I agree with QT. People do have to make their own choice. Unfortunately, people often make the wrong choices when it comes to these abusive relationships. Chris Brown, in my opinion is a loser. Yes, despite how much money he has, he's a loser. The "man" obviously has some behavioral problems dealing with people. If he treats his girlfriend likes this, one can only imagine what and how he treats others he may come in contact with.

    QT my buddy,I have always thought of you as a devoted mother that was just a hoot to be around . This history as sad as it is makes me just real proud of you to keep your children together and show a happy face despite it all.

    As a woman who has experienced domestic violence in the past, and I don't consider myself a victim, I have been silent on the Rihanna/Chris Brown issue so far. Here's the thing, love (or what people think is love) is a powerful thing. That girl thinks she's in love. That boy thinks he's in love. There isn't a thing anyone on the outside of that relationship can say or do to make them see that it's an unhealthy relationship. She has to discover that on her own, and unfortunately getting choked out wasn't enough to do it. Rihanna is no longer a victim, so I'm going to save my sympathy for those women who CAN'T leave. You cease being a victim the moment you knowingly repeat the behavior that traps you in your circumstances all the while having other options. I was a victim the first time he hit me. I had places to go, I just chose not to, because I thought I was in love. The next 4 years I stayed with him, well, I can't claim to have been victimized, because I knew what was going to happen, and kept going back... because I thought I was in love. When Rihanna gets tired of the drama and the pain, she'll leave. When she realizes that love does not physically manifest itself via concussion, when she wants some help, some empathy, some sympathy, some advice, she'll ASK for it and I'll be happy to oblige.
