John Meagher: Thug Chris Brown’s Irish gig tonight is one to avoid

CHRIS Brown plays Dublin’s O2 tonight. It’s not a cause for celebration.

The rapper is the most reviled man in music – and with good reason. In 2009, he beat up his girlfriend, Rihanna, so badly she had to hide herself away from the public gaze for the best part of three months.

A court had to place a restraining order on Brown for her own safety. She told police that the beating was symptomatic of an “ongoing and escalating abusive relationship”.
