Chris Brown threatened to kill Rihanna as he choked her into unconsiousness, she told police, according to E! Online. The confrontation between the lovers on a Los Angeles street was triggered after Brown received a text message from another woman, according to the New York Daily News. "He got a booty call. He got a text," said a friend. "Rihanna saw it and she got upset. They started to argue."
Brown has been trying to contact Rihanna, but "she hasn't taken his call," he added. The district attorney has not yet decided what final charges to file against Brown. He was booked Sunday after his arrest on suspicion of making threats. Rihanna, who reportedly suffered bruising, a split lip, bloody nose and bite marks, may require plastic surgery, reports the Sun.
