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.

you can have it foot-fetish? I have my own thoughts about foot FETISHES (or is it feet feteshi?) But I'm a nice person and shall leave them for the next time.
This time though, should be reserved for looking at Chris Browns & Octotummys arrest photos. The first for asault 2, domestic violence, and the second for child abuse, 14 counts.

I hope Rihanna uses this time to reevaluate her choice of Chris a a partner...he's a woman beater, an abuser and it will not get better. She is so much better than him...I hope she has a support system that will help her see her worth and not what he may be able to do for her as long as she "doesn't tell". She will live with beatings as long as she is with him...it's a proven fact!
Rihanna-leave quickly and be your awesome best... without getting your face bashed in! That can't be what you want in your life. Is it?

The police have overstepped their bounds.

This is an ongoing investigation, and is nobody's business. Police should not be releasing info for money. They should be fired for it. To think they're supposed to police us, and they're the corrupt ones.

TMZ, how much do you guys pay crooked cops for secret info?

Can you 12 year olds stop saying FIRST! This is not a game on the playground. You sound stupid. I could care less if you are first.
This big-toothed bully needs jail time. If they can send Paris, they can send him.
