i can see this is a terrible thing to happen to any woman, but if you ask me she is silly for taking him back. a leopard never changes their spots... And it may take her a couple more of these bashings to realise that. They say they are sorry, and they will never do it again, BUT news flash THEY WILL

Yes, if happens everywhere. If you are in NSW there is a phone line women can call 24 hours a day if they are in a violent relationship to get help. They do not need to be living with the perp of the violence for support. Domestic Violence Hotline: 1800 65 64 63. All other states have a 24 hour number as well.
Men should not be violent OR silent about these issues

Only Chris and Hihanna 'really' knows what happened here. That is not to say ..if he is the one who caused the injuries..that he should not answer of it. However, when you hear that the father of Rihanna saying he supports his daughter's decision..and that the couple are together again after three weeks...appears to be forgiveness on both parts and possible lessons learned. My daughter would be as far from this jerk as east is from the west..but I am not her father.

Run, Rhianna, run!! If he did this once, he will do it again!

For those who say TMZ should not have posted this, think about it. This may help Rhianna see the light, and help others as well.

It is not really a private matter between Rhianna and Chris anymore when he is beating her up. You don't get to assault a person just because you 'love' her!!

This is another Nicole Simpson story. Chris Brown is a very sick teenager who needs SERIOUS help-not "friends, family and his paster." He will eventually kill her. This is the way it transpires time and time again. What is it in Rhinna that makes her feel that she deserves it? That is very sad.

The public needs to boycotte anything related to Chris Brown: his music, merch, touring, everything. He will only see it in his pocketbook to make a change. Everything else is a game for him.

Boycotte everything Chris Brown! Boycotte everything Chris Brown! Boycotte everything Chris Brown!

The only thing that has me thinking that this is not a real photo is the tatoo on her shoulder. None of her other photos show that. I hope that she finds help and support. And then she leaves his ass!!!

She needs to keep this picture in her wallet, so everytime she pulls out a credit card she will remember what he is capable of!! Thats ok if you want to walk on eggshells the whole relationship...NOT ME ..life is too PRECIOUS babygirl..

I don't think this is rihanna. First of all, she was wearing makeup at the time of the incident, and second... rihanna doesn't have a tattoo on the left side of her shoulder. If you go online and research her pics, it clearly shows that there is no tattoo on her shoulder. Oh and another thing before I go, due to the privacy law here in california police photos are all confidential.
