If it were for me that was battered, I wouldn't want it posted all over the internet. Anything for you people to make money! Have some respect!

You know what ... men need to stand up and be accountable for their actions.

Lets say (for argument sake) she did throw the first punch, or she bite him, or she slapped him - whatever. Does that mean a guy can close fist hit her?

Hell no!

You never ever hit a female. I dont give a damn what excuses you try to make up, or even if the woman is going psyco nuts on your ass, YOU NEVER HIT A FEMALE,

CHRIS BROWN MUST BE SO PROUD OF HIMSELF FOR BEATING UP RHIANNA. I SURELY HOPE HE IS PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW. RHINNA, MOVE ON FROM THIS HATE MONGER, YOU CAN NEVER TRUST HIM AGAIN. BELIEVE ME, I USE TO THINK THE GUY THAT BEAT ME WOULD CHANGE, BUT HE DIDN'T. THEY NEVER DO. THEY HARBOR THIS ANGER AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN IT MAY HAPPEN AGAIN. BEST TO MOVE ON AND FOCUS ON YOURSELF. TAKE TIME AND HEAL UP GIRL. WE ALL WANT TO SEE YOU SUCEED!!!!!

Sounds to meTMZ that you could learn a leason from ABC NEWS. While I am a fan of TMZ and visit your site on a regular basis there are just some things that are done here that are completely uncalled for. This being one of them. This poor girl was beat up by someone she thought cared for her. Have a little bit of heart can you imagine how ashamed she must be, how embarrassed she must feel..Now add to that having to see this picture plastered all over the tv and computer. Please out of respect for this woman take this off your website. Don't make her re-live the horror she went through on a daily basis. Ask yourselves ,how would I feel if this was my wife, mother, daughter or sister. Show some respect please and just let this drop.

Please take this down. Let her handle this. We all believe that she was brutally attacked. These pictures are not for the world to see. She is a victim of violence. Please take this picture down. FYI...I can't stand Chris Brown...but I didn't need the picture to come to that conclusion. Love you Rihanna.

Ok, the picture is not funny. As someone who grew up seeing this kind of stuff - and worse - first hand, I know that domestic abuse is very horrible.

But the fact that ABC is bragging about how they won't show the picture WHILE they ARE showing the picture is funny.

DRAMA QUEENS DRAMA QUEENS, AND OH NUMBER 48. WATCH WHAT YOU HOPE FOR WHEN IT COMES TO HURTING SOMEBODY ELSE BECAUSE IT JUST MIGHT HAPPEN TO YOU 10 FOLDS. I PRAY EVERY DAY I SEE THE REALITY IN THING NOT WHAT PEOPLE WANT ME TO SEE. I WILL NOT SIDE WITH THE MAJORITY BECAUSE IT IS THE POPLUAR THING TO DO. WHAT WAS REPORTED ON HER INJURIES AND WHAT THE PICTURES SHOWS DOES NOT ADD UP. I AM AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE BUT YOU PEOPLE ON TMZ SEEM VERY VIOLENT YOURSELF MAY JBE UST MAY BE YOU NEED TO HAVE SOME THERAPY. HORRAY TO HOLLYWOOD CONTUSION IS BROKEN SKIN NOT SWOLLEN SKIN. SWOLLEN SKIN IS UNEVEN CAUSING EDEMA IN THE SKIN. I DON'T SEE IT IN THE PICTURE AND THAT IS WHAT WAS REPORTED. THANK GOD BUT IT DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE THE CASE IN THE PHOTOS. STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU HEAR...

I'm sure TMZ is loving the publicity even in such a negative way.

While this is not a sight everyone wants to see, IT NEEDS TO BE EXPOSED! Fortunately Rhianna survived this horrible experience. She can now be a voice to those that have suffered or are suffering from domestic abouse. A woman in NY was beheaded by her husband just a few days ago. Oh, but this isn't everyone's business, so let's sweep it under the rug~NOT.

Trust me,TMZ does it homework.The picture is legit and real. Question?Why shouldn't TMZ publish her photo.It's news,it's a legitimate story and should not be censored. If you don't like something on TV, don't watch it! If something in print upsets you,don't read it! If you don't like the content of a record,don't listen to it! But,how dare you feel that you have the right to decide for anyone what to look at,listen to,or read.

respect yourself    

VIRGE, NUMBER 63
YOUR A MORON

ALSO, GIRLS SHOULD NOT HIT MEN, KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF!!!!! IF YOU CANNOT CONTROL YOUR ACTIONS, THEN YOU NEED TO BE IN JAIL WHERE SOMEONE CAN CONTROLL THEM FOR YOU!!!

BY THE BY, FOR THOSE IN ABUSIVE RELATIONS, ITS NOT YOU, ITS THEM AND YOU CANNOT FIX THEM BC THEY DONT WANT TO BE FIXED.
BC DINNER WAS COLD OR THEY DRANK THE LAST BEER AND YOU DIDN'T RUN TO THE STORE TO GET ANOTHER DOSNT WARRENT BEING HIT.
HELL IF YOU CHEATED, ITS NOT RIGHT, BUT THAT STILL DOESN'T WARRENT BEING HIT.
I LET MY EX MAN DO IT ONE TIME AND BC HE SAID IT WASNT ME IT WAS HIM, HE WAS REALLY SORRY AND HAD NEVER DONE IT BEFORE ECT.... I LET IT GO.
THE NEXT TIME HE BEAT ON ME, I GRABBED THE METAL BAT AND HIT HIM TILL HE WASNT MOVIN, DONT WORRY HE LIVED. BUT I HAVE AN ASSULT WITH A WEAPON ON MY RECORD, MISDEMEANOR, BUT I DONT CARE.
ASK IF HE EVER CAME NEAR ME AGAIN, BEEN 6 YEARS.
SEE, THEY ARE COWARDS AND ONLY HIT PEOPLE WHO THEY THINK WONT FIGHT BACK, WOMEN, FIGHT BACK

to #79 agree with every word you have wrote, things that are wrong with society get swept under the carpet, it just doesn't happen, women and men suffer in silence at the hands of vicious partners, lets hope the publishing of these pictures might actually cause someone who is suffering to stand up and say I'm not taking this anymore and contact the police or seek help from a refuge group.
