Hollywood couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have urged the media to stop speculating about Chris Brown and Rihanna's Sunday morning (08Feb09) spat as they "reach out" to the R&B stars to offer them help.
Brown allegedly assaulted his girlfriend during a fight in Los Angeles. He has since been charged with making criminal threats and is scheduled to appear in court in March (09).
Both he and Rihanna cancelled appearances at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night - and the former lovers have gone into hiding as the media continues to speculate on what happened and what caused the fight.
And movie star Smith wants all the stories to stop, so the two young singers can get help.
He tells U.S. TV news show Extra, "Jada and I reached out to both of them. If it's help they need, then let's get it right.
"This is a time where they need to be left alone and if they have things they need to work out, work it out. People should take a minute before they jump on it and judge. We dont know nothing.
"If there are mistakes people make, then they should be willing to live up to the mistakes and do whatever penance they need to do. I dont think its up to us, specifically the media, with such a fast hand to try to chop someones head off."
But his wife Jada admits she's distressed by the reports Brown assaulted his girlfriend.
She says, "Violence towards women of any kind is completely unacceptable."
