I looked like this once....NOT fun! Especailly when your mother is a nurse in the hospital and she had to see her daughter walk in the ER looking like this.

once they start they never stop. the sorry s.o.b. will continue and the beatings will get worse. she needs to love herself more and care about herself enough to get out while she can. she is better than that. she can definitely do better than that as well. no one deserves to be beaten---NO ONE!!

Oh my god! It doesn't even look like her. What kind of piece of $hit would do this to another human being? What a big man...

Well i'll be damned i've been on dozens of blogs and most of them say the same thing text + argument =punch up,
then i come here and some info has been added, some last bits of the statement
you know what i think,if the injuries were as bad as
everyone says it is and rihanna does need plastic surgury why is she forgiving him and taking him back???
theres two sides to every story and i think rihanna doesnt have her story straight!
the reason this picture looks even worst is because she's not wearing any make up and her hair is undone!
paparazi always try to make every single thing look 1 million times as bad
another relevant point here is how did the media get this picture as fast as lightning?it looks as if shes posing and wants it to be taken correct me if im wrong but if her head was bashed against the window why isnt the side of her face scarred looks as if its just her lip and forhead have injuries

always updated xx

this is crazy I can't believe they would put this on a website. Chris Brown should get a dose of his own medicine.

To see Rihanna bruised and battered knowing that more damage is present on the inside, is not only disturbing but just sickening! Remember O.J.? He got away with murder.......It's NOT okay to beat the hell out of another person, be it a man ,woman or God forbid a child!! NO IT IS NOT OKAY TO SLAP, HIT,KICK,PUNCH, SHOVE,PUSH....LAY A HAND ON ANOTHER PERSON IN ANGER!!!!! NO IT ISN"T EVER OKAY!!! ASK GOD FOR HELP BECAUSE YOU NEED IT!!!!!!! There is only one positive that I see at this point......Rihanna is still alive and for that she should thank God. But. now she should take a long hard look at her life and make good decisions about who you surround yourself with. Positive people who have a relationship with God enjoy life and are generally good people. Also, are positive in how they live and how they treat others.

FIRST OF ALL ,I THINK AS CUTE AND INNOCENT CHRIS BROWN MAY SEEM,WE MUST REMEMBER THAT HE COMMITED A CRIME.AND RIHANNA IS A VICTIM THERE FORE I FEEL THAT HE SHOULD BE CHARGED FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE REGARDLESS OF HIS "FAMOUS STATUS".WHAT HE DID TO THIS BEAUTIFUL TALENTED YOUNG LADY IS A DAMN SHAME HANDS DOWN IF ONLY HE WAS AS HUMBLED THAT NIGHT IT HAPPEND AS HE WAS IN COURT TODAY THINGS MAY HAVE GONE DIFFERENTLY.AND I KNOW PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY,EVERYONE HAS A CHOICE,AND HE "CHOSE" TO PUT HIS HANDS ON HER,SO HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVED,THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES TO EVERYTHING WE DO IN LIFE,LET THIS BE A GREAT EXAMPLE OF THAT!!!

You know I don't feel that bad if she stayed in the relationship in the first place after she started hitting her then she's the dumb one. She obviously has some issues, being so pretty doesn't mean much now in days. She has no back bones, according to other sources this is not the first time he hit her. Did she really think that he was going to stop. A man who beats on a women, really isn't a man. A women who stays with a man who beats on them like a punching back has no backbone at all. It's obvious she doesn't love herself at all nbor does she respect herself enough to realize that she's worth more. Chris Brown is a little punk, a loser. Just becuase he has money doesn't mean anything. She needs to relaz have time for herself to think right. She's not thinking staright. The next thing we'll hear is that Chris Brown has killed her. A person like that will not change, they never will. It's a shame, she deserves much better in life then that piece of crap. I hope her goes to jail, so when they stick it to him, he can sing like a little girl that he is. He's worthless. Did you know while they were in Miami, she was in the room and he was jet skiing. He has no remorse people, he should be asahmed. What kind of son did his mother raise. His excuse of "I say my mother get beat up when I was younger" IS JUST PLAIN LAME. He's a punk. If I were her I would go to J-Z and have someone beat his ass. CHRIS BROWN U SUCK. RIHANNA wake up. Your telling all the young girls its ok to get your ass beat and then go back like a spineless and worthless girl to be with the man that u quote " LOVE" Please!!!!!!!! THIS IS CALLED LOW SELF ESTEEM. Rihanna don't you know how may other people in hollywood want you. You need a classy man, (NOT A KID) I hope she doesn't die from all of this crap.

You feel BAD for Chris Brown? He beat the absolute sh!t out of her! Look at her! What is wrong with some of you? How can you feel bad for him? What kind of a man beats up a woman like that? Its not like he just smacked her or something (which is bad enough). He beat her up like she's a man. Even his friends, who were defending him at first, saw this picture and were like, "You know what? I ain't got sh!t good to say about that guy now. Screw him."

I hope he goes to jail. He deserves it. That is just wrong, man.
