Aug. 26, 2009— -- The Feb. 8, 2009 fight between Chris Brown and Rihanna that led to Brown's arrest and felony conviction was not the first scrap between the two singers.

A probation report presented at yesterday's sentencing , in which Brown received five years probation and six months community labor, described two previous violent incidents that were never made public.

According to The Associated Press, which obtained a copy of the report, the first incident occurred about three months before the February beating. While the couple was traveling in Europe, Rihanna slapped Brown during an argument and he shoved her into a wall, according to the report.

In the second incident, Brown and Rihanna had an argument while driving a Range Rover during a visit to Rihanna's home country Barbados. Brown got out of the car and broke the front and passenger side windows, according to the report. No one was injured during the incident.

Neither attack was reported to police, according to the probation report.

At Tuesday's sentencing hearing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg also ordered Brown to stay 100 yards away from his former girlfriend for the next five years, unless they are attending music industry events.

Schnegg warned Brown that he could be sent to state prison if he violated any terms of his sentence, including staying away from Rihanna.

Earlier this month Rihanna's attorney Donald Etra told the AP that he would ask Schnegg to rescind the restraining order and replace it with an order that prohibits Brown from harassing, annoying or molesting Rihanna.

"No stay-away order was ever requested by Rihanna, nor did she ever believe it was necessary," he told People magazine.
