Music Stars Accused of Domestic Abuse
Billkozy on 04/23/2009
|Every once in a while it seems a star in the popular music world pops up on the news, accused of beating up a wife or girlfriend. Chris Brown is the latest celebrity and the photos of what he did to Rihanna, an even bigger music star in her own right, have captured the media's attention. According to Marjorie Gilberg, executive director of Break the Cycle, a teen violence prevention organization, "I think that what this incident illuminates is that [domestic violence] does not discriminate. Abuse can happen in relationships of all socioeconomic status, of all types of people, whether they're gay or straight, no matter what the color of their skin is. This is something that crosses all of those boundaries, and frankly, it's sometimes just a little bit more shocking when it's somebody we think of as a hero."|
