Chrisbrown_lPeople.com reports R&B singer Chris Brown was released from LAPD custody after posting $50,000 bail on Sunday night. Earlier in the evening, according to the People.com report, Brown turned himself in for questioning in connection with a police investigation into charges of a felony battery that took place in a car early Sunday morning.

According to police reports, officers responded to a 911 call at around 12:30 a.m. An unidentified woman who appeared to have been beaten identified Brown as her attacker. Brown was not found at the scene.

Earlier today, sources backstage at the Grammys told EW that Brown and fellow Grammy nominee and girlfriend Rihanna canceled their  appearances at the awards show following a car accident. Shortly after, Rihanna’s publicist issued a statement, saying Rihanna was “well” and thanking fans for their concern and support.

Stay tuned for more details as they develop.
