Pop superstar, Rihanna, was attacked by a fan angry over her on-again relationship with Chris Brown as she was leaving the London hotspot, Box Nightclub, Sunday night, reports the NY Daily News.
At approximately 3:00 a.m., the “Stay” singer, in London to debut her fashion collection, River Island, was leaving Box when the man began screaming at her about rekindling her relationship with Brown, who beat her and left her battered and bruised on the side of the road in 2009 — one night before they were supposed to attend the Grammy Awards.
According to reports and witnesses, the man threw a bottle of Lucozade at Rihanna, who then stumbled in an attempt to dodge the projectile. She could be seen wiping blood off of her leg as she walked toward a waiting car.
Rihanna, sporting Manolo Blahnik Chaos sandals, an embossed crocodile biker jacket and a black mini-dress from her own clothing line, was leaving the club with her best friend.
Rihanna has received heavy criticism for reconciling with Brown.
