Rihanna Bloody and Bruised

2/9/2009 6:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Rihanna's injuries were severe -- two "huge contusions" which swelled up on both sides of her forehead. We're told she also suffered "a bloody lip and nose."

Rihanna , Chris Brown
One of the law enforcement people put it this way -- the contusions "look like an MMA fighter or something ... [It] looked like she was growing devil's horns."

We've also heard that Rihanna may have suffered bite wounds on one of her legs and arms, however, one source close to the situation tells us he doubts that is the case.

Chris Brown has been booked on a felony criminal threats charge. If the D.A. files the case, domestic violence charges could be added.

Since she has the largest forehead ever recorded, they must be some big bruises.

She giving him an STD is a rumor. Him being arrested for assault is a reality.

He'll still have a career. He'll just have to start singing songs about slappin his b$tch ho up like the rappers do and are worshipped for.

36 - You really are stupid.

1. The herpes thing is a RUMOR. Have you ever thought how anyone heard what the fight was about. There is no proof that is what the fight was about.

2. Even if it was. She doesn't deserve any punishment. His life is not over. 45 million people in the US alone have had herpes.

3. There is NEVER, NEVER an excuse or reason to hit a woman, especially to the point of her having to go to the hospital.

Stop making excuses for a woman beater. There is nothing he can say to excuse visible injuries.

me stating the truth    

ok so idk, i dont think its acceptable EVER to hit a women... however... it's unacceptable to have herpes and not tell anyone of your disease. It's gross and just as wrong as beating a women... to give Chris Brown herpes and let him think he's fine until it shows up on your face and genital area is HORRIBLE. I say, if you want to be a hoe, be a hoe, but tell any person you decide to f**k or even kiss for that matter that you have a disease and let them decide if they want to live with that forever. it's just as bad as having aids and sleeping with a million people and not telling a single person you have it... just wrong. Chris Brown now has to live with this HERPES FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE... he definately has no right to beat a women, but I can understand the frustrations... I wish he could have found a better way to fix the situation,... unfortunately sometimes (esp. when you find out you have a lifetime disease because your significant other whom you trusted and loved lied and never told you they had a disease) the situation gives you such a blow you dont realize what you are doing in the heat of the moment. Chris, all I have to say to you is that I'm sorry you let someone else literally ruin your life both in health and in your career... but you should have known Rihanna was a HUGE SLUT... she was caught way too many times yet you let it slip anyway!!

Mr.Right Wing    

Obama is re-writing the Constitution..taking away our rights to own a gun away, raising taxes again and again. We should be concerned and fearing of illuminati and the NWO instead of Chris Browns fists hitting Rhianna

Sincere    

Rihanna was probably cheating on him so he had to keep her in check? What a lame ass reason for a beating. Let's get real, how many times do you think he's cheated on her? Oh right that's a totally diff situation. If he beat her, looks like he did if he ran from the scene, then I hope they throw him in jail. The inmates will take care of him, especially a big one called Karma.

It is not hearsay that Chris B was arrested for assault, that he & Rhianna didn't show for the biggest award show/performance of this year, or that she was admitted to a hospital. Get a clue, enabler. I suppose you think OJ didn't kill Nicole Brown and her friend, either!

Innocent until proven guilty!    

He has not even been charged with Domestic Violence. He was charged with threats to harm. That could mean, he slammed on the brakes, she hit her head and face on the dash and they argued, which would also explain why she is not pressing charges. They argued the night before and she was right up in his face. That does not sound like a battered woman afraid of a man to me. Anyone who has met him can vouch for his respectful, gentle demeanor. Unlike "princess RiRi" who walks around ignoring her fans and refusing to even sign an autograph for a child. Come on people, use your logical minds!!!
