I don't think that Rihanna deserved all what happen to her, because no one should have to endure what she has just gone through but she had no business going through Chris's phone because she did not pay for it. I just think that Rihanna has anger and trust issues and Chris is just the first guy to not take it from her.

It is not for others to judge a personal situation based on tabloid information and images. While we live in a world of wanting to see and know about celebrities, there is a line that truly should not be crossed. Displaying this photo crosses every line of morality. It is difficult enough when someone is in a situation of domestic abuse, however, it is more difficult to be in a situation where you are exploited while being abused for someone elses gain. Sad world.

The sad thing is that these bruises are nothing compared to the bruising on her soul because of this abuse. LOVE DOESN'T HURT RIHANNA! The bruises on your face may go away but the scars on your soul will last a lifetime. Like Oprah said, "IF A MAN HITS YOU ONCE, HE WILL HIT YOU AGAIN!!!" NO WOMAN SHOULD BE TREATED THIS WAY! WOMEN EVERYWHERE MUST STAND UP AND SAY "NO THIS IS NOT OK!" Someone should beat that little S**T Chris Brown like he did to Rihanna so he can know what it feels like. YOU COWARD!!

Some of the comments on here are appauling.... If you people acctually knew what it is like to be beaten you wouldnt be having comments like you have .... Unless you are an abuser ... You ARE NOT stupid for loving sumone.... You ARE NOT at fault..... He is an A$$..... NO man should be allowed to beat ANY woman.... BUT I guess because he is the gorgeous Chris Brown he will have untold public support and will get off of it..... She wont charge him ...... She is young and inlove ..... Maybe she even thinks she can help save him from his wicked ways .... Who knows ... IT WONT HAPPEN ..... He will continually beat her and she will end up a broken, hard, sad woman.... OR dead!!!!!! THIS SENSELESS VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN NEEDS TO STOP NOW.....

OMG! This is uncalled for, no matter who you are, celebrity or not. Chris Brown should pay for what he has done, including any jail time he may incur. Hang in there Rihanna, things will get better for you!! No human being deserves to be beat up by another human being. Totally wrong!

I could see the TMZ board room now, you know, the more u guys comment on this, the more popular the "TMZ Execs" are gonna think this is, and therefore, the more money they can make off this, furthur more, they aint taking this down... Im tired of reading "SHAME ON YOU" and "U GUYS ARE MONSTERS, THIS IS AN INVASION OF PRIVACY", no, this is America.
