Leave it to celebrity police TMZ to keep digging for dirt. Well, it looks like they um, shall we say, struck pay dirt.
To be exact, the site is reporting that the female that triggered the bruising battle between Chris Brown and Rihanna is none other than Brown's manager, Tina Davis.
Here's what they say: 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 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.
The detective's affidavit refers to the text message as being "from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with." Davis could not be reached for comment.
