It also says that he bit her and she had marks. I'd like to see his punk ass explain that. A 19 year old kid who thinks he's Billy Badass. Unbelievable. Maybe now she will stay away from him. He has hit her before. Maybe them releasing this photo will remind her to stay away from him, if she has to see it everywhere she goes.

Apart from the fact she's been beat up pretty badly, you can really see the pain and sorrow radiating from her, even with her eyes closed. What kind of MAN would do that to a woman? She may have pissed him off somehow, but that is no excuse for violence! Chris Brown has dug himself quite a grave this time!

OMG! This is so wrong, and to make matters worse, the fact that she and the sleaze who hit her are in the public eye will make any statement, decision, verdict, or appeal made by anyone involved in the case into an (inter)national example. Either Mr. Brown will be made an example of and sent to jail, where i for one think he belongs, or he will be slapped on the wrist and sent on his merry rich and famous way, which i deeply believe would be devastating to the millions who already suffer from domestic violence.

No one should ever have to suffer an abusive relationship, but perhaps this story and the ensuing publicity may have a silver lining yet. Perhaps this will make people open their eyes, and to sit up and take notice that domestic violence is everywhere, affects everyone and hopefully this will help many families dealing with domestic violence and give them the courage they need to get out.

excellent point! "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!!!!!!!! "

That is not the message to be sending. Rihanna IS such a public figure, an icon if you will, and a role model for so many young women. HE HIT YOU GIRL... and if he hit you then obviously he cant care too much for you. Take it from someone who knows. The whole world SHOULD see this picture, if only to heighten awareness of domestic abuse. If anyone has a problem with anyone showing this picture, shame on your selfish self. Look at it this way... would you rather it be kept a secret that even famous ppl are susceptible to the same violence so many families live with every day? Personally i think that is why there is so much domestic violence.. because no one SEES, believes or cares. Open your eyes ppl! If I hadn't gotten help from a 'nosy' neighbor when i did i believe i would be dead by now. Public awareness is the key.

Based on our information, it seems Brown wants to avoid a trial at all costs because the picture of Rihanna taken one day after the incident -- which has not been seen anywhere publicly

The comment above is from TMZ making it proven that this is a FAKE.....
