Rihanna's Injuries -- "Horrific"

2/10/2009 2:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna & Chris BrownLaw enforcement sources have now gotten specific with us... police took pictures of Rihanna's injuries and they are "horrific."

As we reported, the photos show major contusions on both sides of the singer's face -- there is serious swelling and bruising. Her lip is split and her nose bloody. We have now confirmed there are bite marks on one of her arms and on several fingers.

And we now know this... Rihanna claims Brown struck her with his fists and that's what did the damage. There was no object used in the alleged attack.

Rihanna refused treatment at the scene, but before she left cops took photos. We're told the photos alone are "devastating proof of abuse."

And we've learned it was not Rihanna who called 911. Someone in the area heard her screams and called.

Like many i a m horrified at the case of Rihanna and Chris brown. i understand it is your sworn duty to dis out new celebrety news but i think this is a case in which you should leave alone . This is personal and should be kept that way unless the stars themselves wish to talk about it we should not.

Chris Brown said that half the stuff media and others are saying arn't true, so before you critize Chris or Riahnna get your facts straight.
All I want to say is Chris Brown I still love youu!! And Riahnna please don't make a huge deal over it.

Serenity, why are you on here so strongly defending this jerk. All you need to know about this a-hole is that he did this to her. Even if she did provoke this, he took it waaaay beyond self defense.

What one thinks about another for his actions may be kept private if one so desires. A crime however is NOT private. Laws are made for everyone, not just some of us. Unless he can prove it was not he who messed up her face then he should be punished. End of story.

You all act like if we don't talk about it then it will suddenly kind of go away and he won't have to answer for his actions. What kind of magical thinking is that?

Chris Brown is no better than any other man out here on the street ?? Celebrity or not , he just proved himself a lil B**** Punk for hitting a woman .. Get away from her if she is pushing you over , you as a man should be a man and not hit a woman... Sad , the world can even say it could have been her fault , or she provoked it ... There is no reason for a man to beat a woman to this extereme ?? Just my thoughts on this ...

Okay, first of all when this came out I wasn't sure if it was true or not. I do think now that it did happen but you guys can't be pointing fingers at chris brown. By all means i am a women myself and I definately don't think its okay to hit a women but We were not there when it happened. For all we know, rihanna might have taken the first swing, or she might have attacked him. its kinda that theory as if a man shouldn't hit a girl but its "okay" to hit a man, both isn't right. I hope you guys understand. Don't hate on chris (yet) you guys don't even know the whole story
