Chris Brown didn't make it to the Grammy Awards on Sunday night because he was arrested for beating up a woman.

The woman has not been officially identified. 

Police say the 19-year-old singer and a woman were in a vehicle in the Hancock Park neighborhood early Sunday when they began arguing, and the argument escalated when they got out of the car.

While Brown appeared unscathed, sources tell E! News that the alleged victim was Rihanna, 20, and that she suffered visible bruises on her face during an early morning confrontation. 

Both Rihanna and Chris were at the 2009 Pre-Grammy Gala & Salute to Industry Icons event in Los Angeles on Saturday, February 7, 2009

Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, decided against singing a medley of "Disturbia" and "Live Your Life" at last night's awards. Likewise, Brown scrapped his scheduled performance of "Forever." 

Chris was booked on suspicion of Felony Domestic Battery. "He was very professional and didn't appear to have injuries," said Sgt. Bridget Pickett, adding, "He's a good looking young man." His bail was set at $50,000 and he remains in custody.
