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.

Poor Rihanna. My heart really goes out to her, I hope she follows through and presses charges. She just can't let him get away with this - what kind of message would that send to her millions of female fans?

Stay strong, Rihanna!

Yes, HER story. Are you seriously that freakin stupid that you don't understand that the police can only go off of what they are told. JESUS. If she walks in with marks and says that someone hit her, and that person later "turns themselves in", then that is what they have to believe. This does not mean that he didn't do it out of self defense. Just because she was unable to leave marks dsn't mean that she didn't do some swinging too.

Seriously people. Get a f'n clue!

I'm not a fan of either one of them, music wise, but for someone to say that she deserves that.... that is messed up.. no woman deserves abuse... and Chris Brown's career is over. The only one benefiting from this is Michael Phelps because now his big 'screw up' is 'sooo last week!'

What are you talking about? I bet you are a girl. Anyway, many other credible media sources, such as eonline, cnn and msnbc news are quoting the same info. Rihanna isn't the one giving this info to the press, it is being given to them by law enforcement. You would know this if you cared to read the info posted. She's not even cooperating with investigators according to some reports.

Herpes can be caught from sharing make-up. And she would have make-up artists at her almost every day. It only takes one lipgloss. If it is herpes, it doesn't mean anything.

Clearly she was hitting him as well. The problem is he used excessive force. Maybe she went for his (ahem) junk and that's what set him off? I mean to give her two contusions and split her lip, that is a lot of force.

Also, the information listed never says that Rihanna has given a story. It does, however, mention pictures being taken with proof of injury to Rihanna. A picture is worth a thousand words. Try reading the entire story before saying she did or said anything. I hope she presses charges.
