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.

Rihanna should not have confronted Chris with the text message from his ex-gf while Chris was still behind the wheels of a Lamborghini. Rihanna is very blessed to have survived his punches and criminal actions.

As adults, we are all responsible for our actions and choices we make in life. Chris made a bad choice of beating Rihanna up like a dog. I wish that he was man enough to accept responsibility for his actions and had shown some respect towards their relationship.

Am really disappointed and confused with Rihanna decision to let Chris still see her. Not sure if she likes to be beaten up by a spoiled rich pop star? She should get something straight in her life and that is a man who raises his hand on a woman when confronted on domestic issues, instead of being apologetic in the first place is a coward and is too low to be part of any women's life.

Chris deserves jail time for beating up an innocent young woman and nothing in his past life should be used as an excuse for his actions.

All the best Rihanna!!

I at first admired Rhianna for being a strong woman going after her dreams,but now that she has taken this BIG TIME LOSER back I think she deserves what she gets from now on.As a victim of abuse myself I know this will happen again and again.She now knows it too, even though she may not want to admit it but she knows in her heart that it's just a matter of when and not if.She's now going back into this relationship with her eyes wide open and she knows what it will be like from now on,so I think if she knows what she's in for then she must not mind getting a beat down from time to time.Someone once gave me the best advice I could ever have received...DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT WHAT YOU ALLOW IN YOUR LIFE.
