If he's being investigated for allegedly threatening to kill her, and strangling her until she passed out, why DOESN'T she have marks around her neck? When my girlfriends husband tried to kill her, he left CLEAR fingerprints all around her throat. I'm thinking that while he deserves some jail time, some counseling, and some anger management, I also think that maybe someone (the police??) is embellishing this story to increaase the public backlash against him. Shame on them!!!

Rihanna, please press charges. Chris MUST go to jail and anger management classes for this unfortunated event even if this is another doctored up pic or the truth. Your safety and the safety of others is not to be taken lightly around someone that cannot control his emotions. Please seek the help of others whenever you feel threatend your fans love you and you have a good heart. Chris cannot say that he loves you because that is a lie--love is not hitting someone that is anger that is hatred manifested. I pray that your family and close friends will be with you in this time of need and read books for battered women available from the YWCA. If you need a city out of the prying eyes of photographers come to Ft Wayne, IN and seek out the domestic violence shelter or counselours in my city. On a side note: This is for Chris, I pray that you seek help and can't wait to see what happens to your last 15 minutes of fame because not a single radio station is playing your music in my city (2nd largest in the state of Indiana). So yet again ends a dumb thugs career due to violence.

To all of you saying the photo shouldn't be published --

1. It's public record since it was a crime

2. People NEED to see this. People NEED to see what he did to her. Other women need to see the reality of an abusive relationship.

And if Rihanna goes back to him, SHAME on her.

This is terrible, I really feel for her.
But I think it's kind of good that these pictures came out, because the public needed to really understand how bad this situation really is.
