LOS ANGELES ï¿½â‚¬â€ The 2009 Grammy award kicked off with plenty of drama, but the fireworks had more to do with who wasn't performing anything happening on stage.
Just before the event, nominees Chris Brown and Rhianna, each nominated and slated to perform, separately dropped out of the at the last minute. During the show, Brown was being sought for an alleged assault against Rhianna, his long-time girlfriend.
Brown turned himself in to LAPD late Sunday night after leaving the scene of the alleged attack before cops arrived, according to the LA Times.
Police booked Brown on felony assault charges, a source told the LA Times. Brown is expected to post $50,000 bond later this evening.
Rhianna's whereabouts are still unknown.
The drama unfolded behind the scenes when police said just 90 minutes before the show began that they were investigating the 19-year old Brown. His performance was subsequently removed from the show, though it was unclear if he bowed out or was dropped.
