Rihanna Tells Cops Chris Brown Threatened To Kill Her

The expression “I’m going to kill you” is definitely overused. We’re all guilty of saying it at some time or another when angry with a person. But when the other person involved winds up in the hospital, it’s another story altogether.

Yesterday the DA asked detectives to get more info for their case against Chris Brown. And the details they found are quite disturbing.

Rihanna has been talking to the cops this whole time, and according to them, she’s being cooperative.

According to E! News, Rihanna told the police Chris choked her while threatening to kill her. That caused her to lose consciousness. The two had just left Clive Davis’ Grammy party on Saturday night in Chris/ Lamborghini. That’s when everything fell apart.

Chris pulled his car over in the Hancock Park area of LA, which is when Rihanna says she took the keys out of the ignition and tossed them out the window.

She says Chris then tried to go out and find the keys, and when he couldn’t, he put his hands around her neck and said, “I’m going to kill you!”

Rihanna says that she lost consciousness, and that when she came to, Chris had already left! Some boyfriend he is! Rihanna’s right eye was allegedly blackened and badly swollen and she had handprints on her arms.

The responding officers were so concerned about her, they drove Rihanna to the hospital in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance. Officers took two sets of photos of Rihanna: one at the scene and the second after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai for treatment. Those pictures will most likely be used for evidence against Chris.

And speaking of Chris, we haven’t heard much from his camp since he was released from jail on Sunday night. We’re expecting a statement from his lawyer Mark Geragos or his publicist soon!

He can’t just run away from this situation that keeps sounding more and more serious!

Meanwhile, Chris Brown’s sister Lytrell Bundy, or Tootie as she’s called, has just spoken to Extra about her brother claiming he's never been the violent type.

She says he’s never been one to get in fights. She tells them, "He's always been a good boy -- never violent.”

When asked about how Chris is dealing with his arrest and the fallout, Tootie confesses, "He's doing good. He's coping... He's doing as... as to be expected."

When asked about the siblings' childhood together, Tootie says, "It was a normal sister and brother relationship. Nothing different, nothing strange."
