Singers Chris Brown, Rihanna and Usher all cancelled their performances at the Grammy award show causing event producers to scramble for replacement acts.
On Saturday Usher cancelled his appearances at the pre-Grammy event honoring Clive Davis and the Grammy award show because of a “serious” family emergency. It was then discovered that his wife Tameka Foster had suffered injuries sustained from plastic surgery complications in Brazil.
On Sunday both Chris Brown and Rihanna cancelled their performances at the Grammy award show. Brown was arrested the same day under alleged domestic felony charges for battery to a female. According to a police statement, Brown and his female companion “became involved in an argument” around 12:30am on Sunday morning. After stopping his car, Brown and the woman got out and the argument escalated. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.”
While the female’s identity was not confirmed, it is widely believed to be Brown’s girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was released on $50,000 bail on Sunday evening.
