It seems that teens have a mixed, and almost even disagreement as to whoÂ’s the blame for the alleged fight and altercation between celebrity couple, pop singer Rihanna and her boyfriend, singer Chris Brown which led to the arrest along with two felony charges for Chris Brown.

In a recent survey by the Boston Public Heath Commission, 46 percent, almost half of 200 teenagers (ages 12 to 19) surveyed, thought that Rihanna was responsible for her alleged assault by boyfriend Chris Brown, 51 percent thought Brown was responsible and 52 percent said both were to blame.

If you’re thinking “I betcha’ it was all men!” blaming Rihanna, then think again — the teen girls and young women in the survey, reportedly, blamed Rihanna just as much as the teen boys and young men did.

In addition, 44 percent thought that fighting was a normal part of a relationship.

“Somehow young people have gotten the message that this is just part of a relationship,” said anti-violence advocate Deborah Collins-Gousby, reported the Boston Herald.

It also seems that “significant” number of the teens thought that “Rihanna was destroying Chris Brown’s career” as well.

Well, maybe, at least, those teens hadn’t heard the news that Rihanna and Chris Brown are now recording a ‘love song‘ duet together, as previously reported.

In related news, another Government poll taken revealed that 1 out of 5 adults believe itÂ’s ok for a man to slap his wife or girlfriend, while 40 percent also believed that a woman should be held responsible for being sexually assaulted or raped if she has been flirting heavily with a man.
