On February 8, 2009, Chris Brown turned himself in to the LAPD. He was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats to his girlfriend Rihanna. Chris Brown and Rihanna are both famous singers. Brown may also be charged with domestic violence. There are pictures floating around the Internet of what Rihanna looked like after being beaten.
As a result of this incident, Chris Brown has been losing many endorsements. This includes Wrigley’s DoubleMint. Chris Brown will also be removed from all of the marketing materials for upcoming movie Bone Deep. Bone Deep was put together by studio Sony Screen Gems. Sony was planning on heavily marketing stars T.I., Chris Brown, Paul Walker, and Hayden Christiansen. But now the company will not put Brown anywhere on the posters, trailers, or TV ads.
