Rihanna Abuse: February, 2009

Brown's public image had been clean until a vicious fight between the 19-year-old and his then-girlfriend Rihanna made headlines. The night before the Grammy Awards, where the couple had been nominated for two awards each, the pair had left a pre-Grammy party and got into a public altercation. Rihanna's face and arms had been covered in visible contusions and bruises. He had been charged with batter following Rihanna's hospitalization. Brown formally completed his probation in March of 2015.
