February 11, 2009 by dino

Jay-Z reportedly “hit the roof” when he heard that Chris Brown allegedly beat up girlfriend Rihanna.

The 19-year-old star handed himself in to police after officers responded to a phone call at around 12.30am on Sunday morning from an unnamed woman – believed to be Rihanna – who accused him of hurting her.

The Umbrella hitmaker – who was taken by Officers on Sunday to the emergency room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment – reportedly suffered two “huge contusions” on both sides of her forehead, a bloody lip and bloody nose.

Residents called 911 after hearing her screams, and police said Rihanna’s shrieks could be heard in the background.

“It mostly recorded the sound of a screaming woman,” LAPD Detective Deshon Andrews said.

And the 99 Problems hitmaker has vowed to seek revenge should the assault allegations prove true.

“He hit the roof,” a source close to Jay-Z told Us Weekly magazine. “Chris is a walking dead man. He messed with the wrong crew.”

Rihanna, 20, has previously revealed how Jay-Z looks out for her.

“I just found out from a mutual friend that guys will talk to Jay first before they try to approach me,” Rihanna told People magazine. “He’s very protective. Jay has my best interests in mind.

“If it’s a good guy, I know Jay won’t shut him down. But if he’s not, Jay will be, like, ‘No, no, no.’ “
