(Newser) – Looks like Chris Brown's February attack on Rihanna wasn't the first time he had gotten physical with the singer, reports the LA Times. A court report filed yesterday highlighted two unreported incidents "related to domestic violence": a late-2008 fight in Europe, in which Brown shoved Rihanna into a wall after she slapped him, and a January argument in Barbados in which Brown broke the driver and passenger side windows of a Range Rover they had borrowed from a dealership.
