It has been an eventful week starting with the MTV Video Music Awards — aired on Sunday (28 August) — that saw music power couple Drake and Rihanna sharing a kiss on-stage, followed by Chris Brown getting arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. Like always, Twitter has the final say on the entire fiasco involving the A-listers of the music world.

"Now ya'll knew it was just a matter of time till Chris Brown did something to get the spotlight off Drake after kissing Rihanna," wrote a user on the micro-blogging site voicing the thoughts of many.

Another user had a cheeky response to the whole situation as he wrote, "Drake announce his love for Rihanna & Chris brown gets a swat team called on him the next day."

"If Rihanna taught anyone anything ... it should be don't settle for a Chris Brown, when you deserve a Drake," shared another user addressing the past of the Barbadian singer and Brown.

Meanwhile, Brown was released on Tuesday night after he posted a bail for $250,000 (£188,705).Soon after, the singer's long-time attorney Mark Geragos slammed the accusations made by "dethroned" beauty queen Baylee Curran. "It has become apparent that the allegations are not just false but fabricated," he said.
