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.

Genital herpes is an STD caused by HSV-1 or HSV-2, although, genital herpes is mostly caused by HSV-2. Genital herpes is a contagious viral infection affecting primarily the genitals of men and women. Genital herpes is characterized by recurrent clusters of vesicles and lesions at the genital areas or below the waist. A person usually gets HSV-2 infection during sexual contact with someone who has a genital HSV-2 infection. Transmission may occur even if there is no visible outbreak if the infected person is shedding. While generally not dangerous, it is a nuisance and can be emotionally traumatic, as there is no cure.

Cold sores or HSV-1, the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1, can also cause genital herpes. HSV-1 infection of the genitals can be caused by oral-genital or genital-genital contact with a person who has HSV-1 infection. So having oral sex with a person who has a cold sore can cause genital herpes, having had contact with the cold sore. Keep in mind, even if a cold sore is not present, there might be asymptomatic shedding or transmission. Genital HSV-1 outbreaks recur less regularly than genital HSV-2 outbreaks.

Genital HSV-2 infection is more common in women (approximately one out of four women) than in men (almost one out of eight). This may be due to male-to-female transmission being more likely than female-to-male transmission.

Yeah, if that description is right, there is NO WAY it was simply self-defense. Unless Rihanna was hit by gamma radiation and turns 7 ft and green and we all don't know about it.

Rihanna & Chris Brown broke up 2 weeks ago. Rihanna didn't want to break up with Chris but he was done with her. Management forced him to act "lovey" for the Clive Davis party. He didn't want to. Rihannas publicist in confidence asked him to the same. He agreed. They attended the Clive Davis party together. Management asked for Chris to drive with Rihanna in his car after the event was over for paparazzi pictures. Rihanna started acting like they were in a relationship still, not realizing that it was indeed over. Chris told her he wasn't really with her, it was for publicity and that she needed to get it through her head that it was over. Adding insult to injury, Chris PICKED up a girl he had a date with that night WHILE Rihanna was in the car. Turns out Chris moved on with this new chick. Very childish for doing all this in front of Rihanna. Rihanna snapped, the situation got crazy. Rihanna punched Chris in the face while she was screaming, he hit started hitting her back. Noticing there was blood, the girl panicked and called 911.

As of right now, Rihanna's headed to Barbados. Chris is being flown out. The other "girl" is in questioning. Both Rihanna & Chris's team are trying to get her to side with them. If she testifies as eye witness saying Rihanna was the injured party, she could put Chris in jail for a maximum of 12 years. If the girl testifies stating Rihanna indeed made the first punch and if Chris's attorneys can spin it in court, Chris can get off his charges all together. A lot is at stake.

Also, there's proof lingering around. Rebel One Management is trying to stop it from leaking to the media and keep it strictly for legal affairs to try protect themselves if a case does happen. Rihanna's team doesn't want her to press charges as it will damage her name and career. Rihanna's being pressured and most likely will seize to press charges. The eye witness, the other "girl", is the most valuable piece to this puzzle..

I want to keep my anonymity as this is a serious legal issue and could cost me my life and career at my company. Thank you..

More coming soon....

Tentatively Disappointed    

I am really really hoping this is all just a situation taken out of context or a scenario where we arent getting all the details because if this bull sh** is true, he is going to lose a big part of his fan base. A lot of people I know including myself are HUGE Chris Brown fans and we were just shocked all day, we didnt wanna believe someone with his kind of image would do something so just..ugly. Whether or not RiRi provoked him or nowt c'mon now Chris just tell the truth and come out with what happened. So many of his fans support him, its a sickening feeling to even think this would be happening. So Chris, if this is true, I can;t say anything but wow, how disappointing you turned out to be. ( I am hoping it doesn't have to get to that though) I sure wont be attending his all star party in PHX this friday though. Sorry I dont support wife beaters. (Once again silently hoping this is all just.. now what we think it is) ANd RiRi boo I hope you're alright, and even tho a man shold never hit a woman, I hope you didnt so something so extreme or hurtful or dramatic to make Chris wile the hell out like that. UGHHHH this is upsetting

people who are even discussing the herpes thing are idiots. ALOT of people get cold sores on their mouths. It can be caused by anything... being sick, being in cold weather, and stress. Why do you think there are tons of kids walking around with sores on their mouths during finals weeks in colleges? I started getting cold sores on occasion when I was like 7. Does that mean I was blowing some guy with genital herpes? I dont think so. God some of you are retarded.
This whole situation is quite sad, however, I'm waiting for the full story to come out before I make any judgements. With that being say, physical abuse is NEVER acceptable under any cicrumstances. Even if she was trying to fight him, he is strong enough to restrain her and "two huge contusions" does not sound like someone was trying to hold someone back.

Sounds to me like 'uh right' needed something to tell the kids at school to prevent people from picking on him.


If you have ever had a cold sore then you already have herpes and you will probably have it for the rest of your life because there is no known cure at the present time.

These are very young people we are talking about here. If things that night escalated to the point of violence then this is a very sad and very serious situation that deserves a great deal more sensitivity than is present in many of these conversations. Both of them are going to need a lot of support in order to get through this and work on whatever relationship or personal issues lead to this sad outcome. They are very talented and very young people living impossibly high profile lives. I think they could both use a little bit of privacy so they can seek out the help and support that they need right now rather than worry about how the world is going to perceive the events of that night. It is so sad to me that they have to worry about all of us as well as themselves and their relationship at such a challenging time.

61 - It's not going to add since nothing has been said. All we have gotten so far are "sources" and the little info the police are releasing. There has been no official account has come out.

The only facts we know for sure are that Chris and Rhianna were together, something serious obviously happened, and that she is definitely injured. The injuries themselves have been speculated. i don't think anyone really has the truth as to what her injuries are. It's anywhere from contusions to broken bones.

We can't say anyone is lying since neither side has released any statement.

Does anyone here ever check out a reputable news source? As unlikely as it sounds, X17 actually has the story straight. Shame on Chris Brown for causing grave injuries to Rihanna.
