Rihanna’s injuries described as “horrific”

rihanna.jpgMore details have emerged about Chris Brown’s alleged assault on Rihanna, with law enforcement sources describing Rihanna’s injuries as “horrific.” Photos reportedly show serious swelling and bruising, a split lip and a bloody nose, as well as bite marks on one of her arms and on several fingers. Radar Online reported that a eyewitness saw Rihanna being treated for her injuries at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center early Sunday morning. “Rihanna was brought through the back entrance on a gurney, flanked by two LAPD officers,” the source said. “She was clearly very upset by what had happened and I could hear her screaming. She sounded like she was crying as she tried to get to put her point across.” Brown reportedly fled the scene of the incident on foot with the keys to the silver Lamborghini they were driving in, leaving Rihanna “beaten really badly and hysterical” by the side of the road, a source told E! Online. “Rihanna didn’t want anyone to touch her, she was in so much pain.” Brown and Rihanna, who had been dating for a year, were on their way home from Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party on Saturday night prior to the alleged incident. Meanwhile, Rihanna has cancelled her February 13th concert in Malaysia.

    Dear God! That poor poor girl. I hope as an icon to so many young girls, that she shows them that women don’t have to be treated like that AND what happens to the animal when he does it.

  2. Nancy • February 10, 2009 @ 5:26 PM

    Agreed, KERTRATS! I’ve heard mentioned, but not in this article, that there was a weapon involved….I wonder if that was his teeth? Well, he grew up watching his step-father abuse his mother so, it is no excuse but it is plain to see where he learned it from. Hopefully she doesn’t take him back. I’m sure he will cry and try to convince her AND himself that it will never happen again but, it most likely will…and it only gets worse. From the amount of damage he has apparently done to her, I would be inclined to say that this is probably not the first time he has abused her. Sometimes you just have to let it go…even if you love it.

    Oh, and I like your name (backwards) KERTRATS!! 😛

    This is what happens when young women make foolish choices in the company they keep. Maybe some women prefer bad boys.It never ceases to amaze me how some who seem to have it all(chris brown) would throw it all away on this kind of self-destructive behaviour.

  4. Nancy • February 10, 2009 @ 5:56 PM

    “This is what happens when young women make foolish choices in the company they keep.”

    This is NOT her fault!! He did this! We go into all of our relationships in life with the belief (as we should) that we will be safe. We can’t tell by someone’s looks or the way they act if they are abusive. It usually takes time and a few “stressful situations” to see someone’s true colours and we usually don’t get that close to someone until we live with them and then it is too late and we feel (and they usually tell us and have isolated us from others who are close) that we have nowhere to go. I wouldn’t call anyone in this situation foolish…at least not the first time. Now, if she takes him back, knowing full well what he’s like…then she’s foolish!

  5. demigod • February 10, 2009 @ 6:23 PM

    Nancy, it’s partly her fault..poor choice,bad judgment of character. Not to say she was asking to get beaten up. It doesn’t take a year to recognize a punk. Who cares. I’m sure she’s no prize either. Probably deserve each other.

  6. Jim • February 10, 2009 @ 7:17 PM

    gman you must be new to this site because you are going to get pummeled for that comment.

    “i know blacks are a big problem and the root of every crime”

    racist much? I am not even going to lash out at you because someone else will do it for me on here I am sure. All I can say is please educate yourself before making comments like that.

    PS I am white and I am offended by that comment!!

  7. Nancy • February 10, 2009 @ 7:28 PM

    “It doesn’t take a year to recognize a punk. Who cares. I’m sure she’s no prize either. Probably deserve each other.”

    Well, demigod, sometimes it can take longer than a year to recognize an abuser, especially if you don’t live with them and you’re “blinded” by love. Now, maybe you don’t care but I’m quite positive that there are many who do…and no matter whether she is a “prize” or not, she didn’t deserve this!

  8. Nancy • February 10, 2009 @ 7:31 PM

    And for the record, I don’t know her but I think Robin (aka Rihanna) is a very beautiful looking girl and has a beautiful voice as well. She will go far in life and she doesn’t need someone like this to drag her down and make her feel worthless!

  9. Max powers • February 10, 2009 @ 7:59 PM

    I’m pretty sure I read somewhere the root of this arguement started with her giving him Herpes..If so what she got will only last a few weeks, his a lifetime.

    I don’t know about you but if some girl gave me Herpes, score needs to be settled.

    P.S. innocent until proven Guilty try to remember that also Domestic abuse is not on the rise, only every guy being charged with it.

  10. Nancy • February 10, 2009 @ 8:44 PM

    Herpes? Herpes? So what does that mean? Because you can get “herpes” from just about anywhere! And even if he did get it from her, if she cheated on him with 100 different people…still doesn’t give him the right, does it? And I believe she will be traumatized by this event for her lifetime.

    So Max…are you saying if you got herpes from your girlfriend you would beat the crap out of her??????????

  11. Max Powers • February 10, 2009 @ 8:57 PM

    Blah blah Tramitized Blah blah forever, get over it I’m sure it’s not the first time she’s been beat up (male or female)

    I’m not saying I would beat her, but scores due need to be settled. and I’m sure she’s not completly innocent in this, I’m sure she got all MoPo on him, but the guy is alwas guilty.

    When was the alst time you heard of a girl being charged with domestic

  12. demigod • February 10, 2009 @ 9:35 PM

    Oh please Nancy, stop being so naive. He’s obviously a hoodlum, and that’s her type. They’re barely out of their teens. What expectations do you have? This is just one of her many disastrous relationships to come. Mark my words. Whatever the argument was about, I’m sure it was stupid and immature.
    Having beauty and talent are not accomplishments either.

  13. Nancy • February 10, 2009 @ 9:43 PM

    It doesn’t matter what her type is or how old they are and how do you know what HER or anyone else’s future holds? So, call me “naive” all you want…it doesn’t change the fact that this is HIS problem…NOT HERS! He needs to get help. As for you, Max…WTF? Does Chris have bruises, bite marks and a busted lip? The injuries he caused her sound quite extreme for a “self defense” clause!

  14. demigod • February 10, 2009 @ 9:57 PM

    SHE is the one getting involved with this sort.

  15. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 1:34 AM

    Well, “WOMAN BEATER” wasn’t written across his forehead, was it? There are alot of what you call “bad boys” out there who DON’T beat women you know…then again, there are some who seem really nice and sweet and totally flip their lid! In my opinion, none of the blame is on Rihanna for this. It doesn’t matter who you get involved with and what kind of reputation they have or people think they have…you should be able to feel safe in the surroundings of someone who claims to love and care about you, not walk around on egg shells so he doesn’t beat you!

  16. demigod • February 11, 2009 @ 3:17 AM

    What I see written on his forehead is, ‘Gun-totin’-h0 beatin’-b!*ch slappin’-trash-talkin’-bling-wearin’-ride-pimpin’-ego-trippin’-ghetto supersta train-wreck-waitin’to happen..’ -aka WOMAN BEATER!
    And he’s not even a rapper.

  17. leona • February 11, 2009 @ 4:21 AM

    well now what is going to happen to this obviously very stupid violent man? if u ask me he should go to jail for awhile, he needs help for all this women hating rage he has and he will suffer professionly for this, definitely wasn’t thinking, as for our female victim she too will need help in overcoming this violence and for every one who says she deserves this, get help, no one deserves this, violence is unacceptable period

  18. demigod • February 11, 2009 @ 4:54 AM

    This female victim can help herself by disassociating herself from the crowd she’s running with.

  19. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 9:08 AM

    Sounds like you’re jealous of her, demigod. Because she’s “running with” the likes of Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, etc….but yet, we don’t hear anything of Justin beating up Jessica Biel…or Jay-Z busting Beyonce’s lip. Yeah sure, Kanye throws a temper tantrum every now and then when he doesn’t get his own way but, he doesn’t go around biting people. So she made a wrong choice, so many of us do, doesn’t mean all of her acquaintences are “bad news” though. I just don’t understand how anyone can blame her for this…then people wonder WHY some women stay in this kind of situation.

  20. April • February 11, 2009 @ 10:11 AM

    could it be a publicity stunt …
    i find it odd that the pap were following them right until the point where they got out of the car …

    there are pictures and videos from EVERY part of that evening but nothing to show AFTER the car stopped

    supposedly a witness saw … im sure there was more than one – and i sure someone would have taken out their video phone and recorded …

    if this is true – somehow i do not believe it – i think he deserves to rot in jail …

    there is absolutely no reason why one human should be able to forcefully put their hands on another human – whether its domestic or not …

  21. demigod • February 11, 2009 @ 12:12 PM

    Yea Nancy that’s it, I’m jealous. What makes you think I’d be interested in trash like her? You’re the fan.
    Her crowd includes rap/hiphop/r&b artist and industry people run by gun-weilding thugs and collaborators who have rap-sheets a mile long.

  22. Dave • February 11, 2009 @ 12:56 PM

    they’re the IKE and Tina Turner of our generation

  23. mandee • February 11, 2009 @ 2:39 PM

    im beginning to think demigod, that the reason youre so quick to point out rhianna and blame her for what happened to her, is because youve done the same exact thing to at least one of your significant others. as far as im concerned, chris is a sick person. he needs help, and he should be in jail for what he did. no woman deserves to be abused. PERIOD. no ifs, ands or buts. who CARES who she hangs out with? its not HER fault that a so called MAN cant manage to keep his hands off of her when he is ANGRY. (oh and about it being a publicity stunt, i dont think it was because all it did was ruin chris’ whole life…what good would that have been for him?)either way, i completely agree with you nancy, 100%. now, if she gets back together with him, i refuse to feel bad or any sympathy for her…if youre stupid enough to go back, THEN i feel its your own fault. (im not saying you deserve it, im saying you then lose all of my respect).

  24. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 5:30 PM

    You don’t even know her demigod…so how would you KNOW that she is trash. As for me, I don’t mind her music…wouldn’t really call myself a fan though. But you know what? I despise Madonna, but I’d be typing these exact same words had she been beaten! Doesn’t matter “who” she hangs with…her boyfriend has no right, and any COWARD who calls himself a “man” and beats his wife or girlfriend or a child, is just that…nothing but a COWARD!

  25. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 5:43 PM

    Now YOU, gman…are a complete LOSER! No, I’m not black and I have nothing against those who are. YOU are a racist SOB and the rest of society has absolutely no use for you…no wonder you are so bitter. I don’t keep my mouth shut for you or anyone else…on the computer or face to face and no, no COWARDS like you beating me! Hahahahaha LOSER!

  26. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 6:05 PM

    Whay are you saying you’re scared, gman? “granny nancy”?? Hahahaha! Sure! You don’t know me and I don’t know you…and I like it like that! People like you are nowhere near me.

  27. Max Powers • February 11, 2009 @ 6:05 PM

    Hey Nancy would you hit gman if you seen him face to face, you seem very angry almost like you have rage issue.

    seems to be another part of this story coming out that he got a txt msg from a booty call and she freaked on him..hhhhhhmmmmm the tides turning nancy..all rumors possible

  28. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 6:09 PM

    Sure Max…after Chris got all jealous of her paying attention to Timbaland and Justin Timberlake! I don’t know what part you don’t understand, Max…he had NO RIGHT TO BEAT HER…PERIOD! Under any circumstances. And no, I’m not angry Max, you don’t know me at all and no, I wouldn’t hit him…unless it was self defense! Other than that I’d just laugh in his face and walk away…as I would with you! 😛

  29. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 7:09 PM

    No Max, I wouldn’t hit gman unless I had to defend myself…and even then, I wouldn’t beat him. I would laugh in his face and walk away…as I would with you! 😛

  30. Max Powers • February 11, 2009 @ 7:20 PM

    your contradicting yourself to say you would depend yourself goes against no one has the right to hit someone else REGARDLESS of the situation.

    Nancy please go back to taking care of your 16 cats and your rainbow shirt wearing son collect your child support and use it to buy a clue in this real world were not everyone is nice and this is the way society is.

  31. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 7:31 PM

    What the hell are you talking about, Max? I think you’re the one who needs to get a clue! I specifically said I would defend (not depend) myself but NOT give a “beating”, can you comprehend that, Max? I have always been all for a person defending themselves and, by law a person is “allowed to use as much force as necessary” to defend themselves. So, actually I wasn’t “contradicting” myself when I SAID, “no one has the right to ‘beat’ someone regardless of what they did.”

  32. Max Powers • February 11, 2009 @ 7:54 PM

    So if She started it first and hit him first. would you be ok with this outcome he’s just defending himself

  33. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 8:08 PM

    No Max, I wouldn`t be “ok with this outcome”…what language do you need to hear me say this in? If she has the damage done to her that is being reported, then he was not just “defending” himself…HE BEAT HER! You`re starting to remind me of Gina, with all this round and round stuff…??

  34. Max Powers • February 11, 2009 @ 8:33 PM

    Chris Brown was just reprezetine himself know what I’m sayin, she stepped to him and he had to protect his rep.
    he was just keepen it’s real

  35. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 9:30 PM

    Yeah well, come March 5th he`ll be “keepen it`s real” alright! He`ll be “reprezetine” himself to his new homies in the state pen…know what I`m sayin? Hope he doesn`t drop the soap! 😉

  36. tributegirl • February 13, 2009 @ 12:30 PM

    Omf, Max makes absolutely no sense at all.
    And demigod, I’ve seen people who have been in abusive situations (my sister being one), and it is very difficult to just walk away, these abusers seem to do a little brainwashing before they start getting physical. I see what you are saying though, I’ve heard loads of people saying “well if she stays she only has herself to blame”, and in a way that’s true, but after seeing my sister in a bad situation, I saw it from a totally different angle. It’s easier said than done.

  37. Nancy • February 14, 2009 @ 2:34 AM

    That’s true Tributegirl. They totally isolate you. They drive all your friends and family away (they tell you that your friends and family are filling your head with things that they shouldn’t be), they tell you that you are ugly and that no one else would ever want you, they convince you that you NEED them and can’t make it on your own without them and that if you try to leave, they will find you and kill you…and if they can’t find you or if you tell anyone how they treat you, they will kill one or all of your family members or friends, if you have kids, they will even threaten to kill them. They make you have such low self esteem that you don’t even want to leave the house…and that is exactly where they want you because then they have full control of you. And practically every other day you hear breaking news of women being killed by their abusive spouses because they left them. Of course restraining orders are usually in place but we all know they are not worth the paper they are written on. So at this point, the abusee feels she has only two options:
    (1) Stay and be abused
    (2) Leave and be killed

  38. Jo-Anne. • February 14, 2009 @ 3:54 AM

    Nancy, I hear what you are saying here, and some of these points I am sure relate to many women today, unfortunately.

    I think it would be much more encouraging to focus on the many, many women who do pull out of abusive situations and offer hope to those who feel they have none with yet a third option…

    3) Walk away, don’t look back, you deserve so so much better than this?

  39. tributegirl • February 14, 2009 @ 4:16 PM

    I agree, that option #3 is exactly what these women should do, but all the brainwashing that has taken place makes option #3 seem impossible to many of these women.
    I knew a woman who was in a situation such as this, she was not “permitted” to leave the house, had 2 children with the jerk, he wouldn’t even let her go to the dentist, she ended up pulling her own wisdom tooth at home. It was bad, and surprisingly, and happily, she did go for option #3, although the end results of option #2 is what she feared would happen.

  40. Nancy • February 14, 2009 @ 6:57 PM

    I was in an abusive relationship for 6 1/2 years and then chose option #3. When I made that choice, I feared option #2 as well but I welcomed it more than option #1!! It was important for me to get my kids out of there even if it meant getting killed doing so. It has been almost 9 years and my restraining order has no expiry date so, it’s in a safe deposit box along with my original custody papers. He doesn’t know where we live…he knows which city but has no clue “where”, and his not knowing finally prevents him from stalking us. I have to alternate my routes to and from home so that I am not seen taking the same route frequently. The first two years before we moved to where we are now were pretty bad. I’d look out the window and there he would be, in the driveway staring at me or I’d get out of my vehicle and turn around and he would be slowly driving past. I’ve had the police knock on my door at 3 am and escort me and my kids to a safe house because they received a call that he was threatening to come and kill us and then take his own life. Nothing ever happened to him though, except 30 days in jail and an extra year probation. He has a criminal record longer than Yonge St. and still only gets slapped on the hand for his wrong doings while the kids and I have to constantly watch our backs. I am not afraid to come face to face with him, that part of me is gone and he doesn’t want to try messing with the new me but, he is the “coward” type…the type who is sneaky and would follow us home, wait in the bushes until we are asleep and then burn the house down…THAT type!

  41. tributegirl • February 15, 2009 @ 12:35 PM

    And in my opinion, that type should not be walking the streets! I feel that his “right” to be free destroy’s your right to be safe, and that’s just sick. People like that should be locked up, the rights of innocent people should come before the “rights” (obviously I feel that people like that should have no rights) of people like that. But it never seems to work that way, they get a slap on the wrist, and the innocent suffer.

  42. mandee • February 16, 2009 @ 10:27 PM

    i completely agree with you tributegirl. im sorry you went through so much crap in your life nancy, no one ever deserves to know what thats like. no one should ever have to fear for their, or their childrens safety or lives. i think its sick that they keep him on the streets. people like that shouldnt be anywhere near any women or children EVER. im sure i speak for pretty much everyone when i say im really glad you found the strength to walk away. 🙂

  43. mandee • February 17, 2009 @ 2:13 AM

    i just realized how creepy that smile looks, i didnt mean for it to, i was being genuine when i said all that. : )

  44. Nancy • February 17, 2009 @ 9:25 AM

    LMAO mandee…at the creepy smile. Thanks, it wasn’t easy but my kids are totally worth it and I moved to an area where I have about 20 different routes to and from home. I know it is ridiculous, we shouldn’t have to watch our backs so much but, someday he’ll meet his maker!!

  45. tributegirl • February 17, 2009 @ 9:41 AM

    And when he does, who could ever feel sorry for him? Certainly not me, and I don’t even know him.
