Chris Brown's Mystery Woman in her 40s?

TMZ is reporting and HuffPo is repeating that the woman who triggered the argument between Rihanna and Chris Brown that resulted in Rihanna's savage beating by Brown is an older woman, Browns's manager.
Sources tell us the woman who left the three-page text message on Brown's cell phone is Tina Davis. Davis -- who turns 40 this month -- was rumored to have had a relationship with Brown when he was 16. Brown and Davis have denied it.

Law enforcement tells us the text message to Brown talked about hooking up later -- and it totally pissed off Rihanna. She slapped and hit him and he then brutally fired back. (TMZ)
Keep in mind Brown and Davis have denied having an affair or being sexually involved. Brown, who will be 20 in May, debuted at age 16.

If Davis sent the text messages and the rumor of the affair is true, then it's further proof that the other woman is not necessarily better looking or younger as recently discussed under why men cheat.

Experts on cheating say the other woman is usually someone who makes the male feel important and needed and therefore her looks are not the issue women think it is. In Brown's case could it be something else, a mommy complex perhaps? From what I see in the video, Davis doesn't look motherly. Whenever I've been approached by a younger man, I assume he assumes I have sexual expertise. No, I don't date younger men, especially ones young enough to be my son, but I have been approached by them.

All this is speculation because TMZ, while getting celebrity scoops, is still a gossip rag. It's the same site that released pictures of what they claimed was Rihanna's face after the beating. Some people felt that was in bad taste, and I know some people believe discussing celebrity gossip is in bad taste period.

Generally, I don't care what celebrities do, but a case like this opens discussion on other social issues that matter beyond celebrity, domestic violence, infidelity, female and male insecurity.

According to TMZ, the video below is of Tina Davis, the Chris Brown mystery woman.

Hmm, she doesn't look like a cradle robber. If this story of a sexual relationship isn't true, TMZ has some explaining to do as do the police who keep leaking information on this case.

The Chris Brown-Rihanna drama has forced a needed conversation and debate up the black community's agenda, domestic violence and the excuses we make for it. Currently, eyes are on Rihanna as we wonder will she testify against Brown?

Females victims of domestic violence often back down after being made to feel that their testimony will ruin the man's life. I wouldn't be surprised if Rihanna is being told that about Brown, that if she doesn't testify, he won't go to jail and so she can save him. Will she save him but not herself?

It is my understanding that if Rihanna will testify if the court summons her to do so. I read that on Monday.

As far as the older woman aspect is concerned, if the story is true about Chris having a relationship with his manager, the current case would open up on a different avenue. Depending on how the statues of limitations work. Wouldn't it be a hot mess if Tina ended up being charged with having sex with a minor?

There is no confusion in my mind about the subject of physical violence and abuse. There is definitely a problem that needs to be addressed in these type of relationships.

Even if this incident was the first time, the possibility of a repeat lurks around them. They definitely need to go seek counseling.

I find myself wondering if they have another encounter of physical violence-will it be kept up under wraps? Because you know and I know that in the unspoken sistah codes, a definite "oh no she didn't!" has been committed.
