This is super jacked up… We may not always root for RihRih over here, but we’d still kick the azz of any sonofab*tch who tried selling us old pictures of her and Breezy from that infamous beatdown. But that’s exactly what some wack individual is trying to do.
According to RadarOnline:
Never-before-seen images of a battered Rihanna, reportedly taken at a hospital after her fight with Chris Brown, have leaked.
RadarOnline.com has seen the four images that were offered to this site for publication. We declined.
The photos were taken by a “state employee involved in the investigation” of her then-boyfriend Brown – who assaulted Rihanna the night of the Grammy awards in February 2009 – according to an anonymous source who would not identify themselves to RadarOnline.com.
“They were taken at the hospital,” admitted the source, who has been shopping the photos to various other media outlets.
The possible release of the stills would almost certainly cause more outrage. Less graphic images were published online eleven days after the couple’s fight nearly two years ago.
After that leak, the Los Angeles Police Department launched an internal investigation and asked for the public’s help in finding the source of the photographs.
The photos showed to RadarOnline.com are different to those previously published.
While three of the stills feature Rihanna, a fourth is of Brown seated in a hospital room pictured with a small lesion on his upper lip.
It was widely reported that the battered Umbrella singer became enraged after finding text messages on Brown’s cell phone to other women, prompting her to throw the phone at Brown’s face. The reports were never verified.
Rihanna – whose real name is Robyn Fenty – is pictured with large welts above each of her eyebrows, marks on both of her cheeks and a split lip.
The most graphic photo is a close-up; her left eye bloodied and bruised, with four lesions on her face and multiple cuts on her bottom lip.
Rihanna, wearing a grey tank top with her short hair pushed off her face, is also photographed in a profile position, showing the right side of her face.
A ruler is being held up which shows the reddish swelling to span two inches – from the bottom of her eye almost all the way down to her mouth.
In another image, Rihanna is shown pulling her busted lips apart to show numerous lacerations on the inside of her mouth.
A worker, wearing a latex glove, is holding up a ruler to her lips.
There appears to be at least five major cuts on the inside of her lips.
“(I’m) not sure if they where used as evidence, but I’m assuming they were,” said the source.
In the one image not seen by RadarOnline.com, Rihanna is captured with a “bite bruised mark on her arm”, according to the source.
When asked if a domestic violence case worker was behind this most recent leak, the source insisted, “A case worker at the hospital did not take these.”
The source added, “I’ve had them for months.”
More graphic than the leaked TMZ photo? This could do major damage to both Chris Brown and Rihanna, who are only just now recovering from the incident.
SMH. Not cool at all.
Would you even want to see these pictures?
