Rihanna:

Chris' Beatings

Kept Getting Worse

3/5/2009 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Even if Rihanna refuses to cooperate with prosecutors, the L.A. County District Attorney may have evidence even more powerful than the gruesome photos. Multiple law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the night of the attack Rihanna told cops she was the victim of escalating violence -- and the perp was Brown.

Chris Brown, Rihanna

LAPD cops interviewed Rihanna after the attack and she told them Brown had been violent toward her in the past and that the attacks were getting "more violent" as time went on. The interview is potent evidence if the L.A. County D.A. charges Brown with felony domestic battery, and that could happen as early as today.

And there's something else. The photo that TMZ obtained showing Rihanna battered, bloody and bruised is mild compared to other photos. We've learned additional pics were taken on February 9, the day after the attack, and they are far more gruesome -- the bruises and swelling far more pronounced. We're told these photos show injuries that could be devastating in a case against Brown.

I am sick and tired of trash like Chris Brown giving the other brothers a bad name. I am 43yrs old. When I was 19yrs old, I had women dog me, but it never would have crossed my mind to put my hands on them.

Let's not take up for this guy. Throw the punk in jail, is not that what women beaters are? Punks!
It is a new day for the Black men, Let us not like this trash tarnish us anymore!

This sick boy should be in jail. The other jailbirds will straighten him out. I have no sympatny for this coward and I have even less respect for the young Negro women who call the black radio talk shows or write in their comments online defending Chris Brown's behavior.

With everything Rihanna has going for her, I can't believe her self-esteem is so low that she would accept Chris Brown's battering of her as an act of love. Where is Rihanna's mother? Who is giving her good motherly advice? Please Rihanna, walk away, run away as fast as you can. You have been hiding his abusive behavior far too long. Why do you want to protect this thug who beat you in the face without remorse? Stop protecting him! Next time, you might not be so lucky...

I have one question....Why hasn't there been a restraining order issued? In all domestic violence cases they issue a restraining order. The law requires that she attend 10 PEP Classes and he enroll in domestic violence classes, before the restraining order can be issued. They haven't mentioned anything about a RESTRAINING ORDER.

Correction from my last post....The law requires that she attend 10 PEP Classes and he enroll in domestic violence classes, before the restraining order can be LIFTED.

She is an idiot if she doesn't cooperate with prosecutors to help convict him. She's a disgrace to women if she lets him walk away with no punishment, especially since she is supposed to be a role model to younger women. If she doesn't help and goes back to him, she's showing young girls across the world that it's okay to have a guy beat you. What a fu*king idiot!

As for the little boy named Chris Brown, he should definetly get some jail time...but he probably won't, let's face it, when your a celebrity you can get away with just about anything with a slap on the wrist and a fine. So sad!!!

First; they had better NOT let him go on this unless they want another Nicole Brown SImpson debacle...Abusers don't stop until they have totally HAD THEIR WAY...one way or another. What she has already suffered will only get worse over time and God forbid she should ever have a child by him because it too will live through a life time of abuse (IF it lives, babies faces are more fragile than a grown ups....RUN...RHIANNA....RUN........Let him go to prison like he DESERVES and learn forst hand what abuse is ALL about !!!!!

RIHANNA FENTY SHOULD BE DEPORTED BACK TO HER NATIVE LAND BARBADOS ! WHAT A WASTE OF SPACE THAT GIRL REALLY IS.. I SAID THAT IF SHE TOOK HER ATTACKER BACK SHE WOULD LOSE ALL SYMPATHY AND SHE HAS DONE JUST THAT. I DONT CARE IF SHE IS PREGNANT.. LET HER BEAT DOWN AZZ GO BACK TO WHERE IT BELONGS.. MAYBE HER FELLOW BARBADAN WOMEN CAN TEACH HER HOW TO BEHAVE. HIS CAREER IS SO OVER, AND HERS WILL BE TOO IF SHE DOESNT THINK ABOUT WHAT SHE IS DOING. THE PUBLIC ARE NOT AS STUPID AS SHE THINKS THEY ARE...
