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 really upset with her for not dumping him and making an example for all women who have been beaten.

Chris will be let off without question. It is Hollywood and you have a victim who now is "in love again".

Personally, the way to make a point to these two is do not buy their music from now on. If they want to beat the crap out of each other after all of this wears off, go for it, but I won't fork over a nickel.

Chis Brown if not jailed should at least be black listed and not be able to work, hit him where it hurts...no one should get away with abuse. Rhianna please come to your senses or has he knocked that out of you?

IN REFERENCE TO THE COMMENT POSTED ON #33,WHOEVER YOU ARE,THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST IGNORANT SHORTSIGHTED COMMENTS SOMEONE COULD BE "PROUD" TO POST. TO SAY THAT IT'S BLACK CULTURE AND BLACK MEN HIT THEIR "BITCHES" IS AS BAD AS SAYING THAT IT'S WHITE CULTURE FOR A MAN TO KILL HIS WIFE AND KIDS AND THEN HIMSELF WHEN HE CAN'T PAY HIS BILLS OR THE STOCK MARKET FALLS. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS COLOR BLIND AND WOMEN OF ALL COLORS HAVE SUFFERED AND MEN OF ALL COLORS HAVE GOTTEN OFF. GARTH BROOKS IS A RICH WHITE MAN WHO BEAT THE STUFFING OUT OF HIS FIRST WIFE AND NOT MUCH WAS EVER DONE ABOUT IT. INSTEAD OF SLINGING RACIAL BLOWS AND STEREOTYPES,LOOK AT THE REALITY: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS GROWING LIKE WILDFIRE,DESTROYING ITS VICTIM,REGARDLESS OF RACE,CLASS,INCOME,AGE,AND EVEN GENDER. IF THIS WAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO SHOW WHAT A HICK YOU ARE,JOB WELL DONE,BUT THERE'S A MORE SERIOUS ISSUE HERE.

wow    

THis is just gross. I come from a home where domestic violence happaned every day, and this is just sad and gross. Rhiana just sets women back. I know it's hard to leave someone you love when they are abusing you, but we do not live in time where women depend on men. Women are so much independed now, and all Rhiana is doing is showing how women can be so weak, I hopre her music from now on is about women being dumb, weak, and independed because that's what she's showing here. I hope Chris goes to Jail. He deserves it. He's sick.

I am well too familar with domestic violence which makes me understand on one hand how she is going back to him but on the other makes me sadden that this opportunity for a strong woman to emerge as the face of how to get out of a DV situation is crumbling. I believe that she has a responsibility to all the young girls that buy her music to make healthy decisions however it is also true that she needs just as much if not more counseling than him if she truely wants to be heathly. I am just sad by the situation. I am also horrified that it is taking this long for the police to charge him with domestic violence, it's ridiculous. There are clear messages being sent out to young people from all sides and not one message is positive, healthy or in the best interest of the millions of people watching this unfold.

I think it's about time for Rihanna to apologize for clumsily tripping and slamming her face into Chris Brown's fist. He's been having arthritic pain in his hand ever since. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS, RIHANNA! YOU HURT CHRIS' HAND!

Why are you protecting him, Rhianna? Why protect the abuser who beats you, says "sorry, baby, I love you. You know that. It won't happen again." Till the next time! Don't be so stupid, put his a&& in jail!!!

To everyone judging Rihanna for getting back with him, I agree that it's the worse case scenario in the world. People obviously don't understand the dynamics of a horrid relationship like this. Someone who is in an abusive relationship and stays with that person also has a serious problem that needs to be addressed. Obviously, Rihanna was already the victim of some sort of abuse as a young person and this is why she remains in such a situation now (probably by her father). This is how women get into abusive relationships, they have an experience early on that leads them to believe that this is normal or 'what they deserve' and it continues a sick cycle until they get the help they need. I hope Chris goes to jail where he belongs and that he follows through with anger management classes, and Rihanna needs a serious psychologist to start getting her on a normal track. It's so sad and so hard to understand these types of situations, and I hope she uses this incident to grow and set a positive example for others. Her actions so far are absolutely the wrong thing.

Kenny, you are retarded. Stupid, too. And, dumb. Oh, not to mention a racist. But, a damn stupid one, bordering on moronic. Dumber than I can imagine. More idiot than idiot. So stupid, it's not even funny. Inappropriately stupid. Embarrassingly dim witted. Did your mother drop you? Did your father drive over you? Maybe just a little? Teachers use you as the example not to imitate? Yeah, I kind of thought so, you big, ugly, dumb, stupid, idiotic, retarded, useless loser. Have a nice day.
