She can't be serious about taking him back! Please say she understands other girls and women are looking at her, and her message to take him back is TERRIBLE!!! I'll boycott her music forever if she stays with him. She might not survive the next attack - and there will be more, especially if she let's him get away with it.

OMG!!! You guys are never going to believe this. Some of you may already know but Rihanna is already back with him. At least that's what I heard. Poor girl. So is so nieve ( bad spelling) She is going to go back to that selfish women beating bad singer thug wannabe. That sentence was really stupid, I know. Well, we hope you the best Rihanna. And don't go back to Chris.

Listen to oprah girl....they will hit again....been there done that......and it doesn't make them a better person for excepting there apology, it makes them stronger. She needs to show him that she is in control of her life not anyone eles and until she can stand up to him and walk away is when she will regain her dignity and self respect back

A Domestic Violence Victim too    

I have two names for Rihanna... OJ Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson. I know she was too young when OJ killed Nicole. Her police picture when OJ beat her looks eerily similar. Run, Rihanna and don't look back. Nothing you do should ever result you you being beaten by anyone! I know from experience! Don't wait until it is too late. I don't care how cute he is... his actions made him a very ugly man now.

A Domestic Violence Victim too    

PS... She needs to read the OJ case file. I guess it does not matter if you are rich, famous and beautiful... you are still not immune. Honey, listen to the words of wisdom and move on with your life. There are so many men who would treat you like you should be treated... with love and respect! Oprah is right... if they hit you once, they will hit you AGAIN! He obviously has no anger managements control because he did not even think of the consequences of his actions even with the Grammy's scheduled for the next day.

She looks terrible in that photo. It's a darn shame that everybody just sees her injuries & doesn't see what she did to start that crap. SHE PUT HER HANDS ON HIM FIRST...I'm a woman & I'll be the first to tell you...IF A WOMAN PUTS HERSELF IN A MANS PLACE & HITS HIM...I BELIEVE HE HAS EVERY RIGHT TO RETALIATE IN THE SAME EXACT WAY. I mean come on ladies...ARE WE REALLY THAT STUPID TO THINK WE CAN KICK THEIR HIND ENDS? Men are just stronger than we are...REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU THINK OF YOURSELF, HE'S STRONGER!!! I spent my entire childhood in corn fields, tobacco fields, hellacious gardens...I'M VERY STRONG NATURALLY...BUT STILL CAN'T KICK A MANS BUTT NOR WOULD I ATTEMPT IT. I think, although he went a bit too far, she deserved most of it for putting her hands on him first.

Rihanna:

Put this picture in your pocket, purse, wallet, whatever. Whenever you think you love him enough to forgive him, that you provoked him and had it coming, that he'll never do it again, pull this picture out and take a good long look.

Don't forget.

No one deserves this.

TMZ is ruthless. This isn't about caring about people nor trying to help either one of them. This is a BEAT DOWN. I will not be logging into your space again.
