Jesus, that's not a broken nose. She's not wearing concealer to mask the dark circles under her eyes and as for the nose, truly, it's not even swollen, much less broken.

I used to hang out with Matt at this bar when I was younger. My husband played in a band that Matt always came and watched. The rest of the members grew up with Matt and they were all good friends with him and his brother. We played in this bar ALL the time! This area is know for fighting. When we played there, a fight always broke out and the cops had to be called in. We played this area nearly every weekend and not once was it a peaceful night! Often the state police would be there to help secure the area. Several nights the entire bar would erupt into a HUGE bar fight and take it outside. There were at least 50 on 50 everywhere you looked people were beating the crap out of each other! This area people has always said "the only thing these people know how to do is F@ck and Fight." So don't go throwing Matt under the bus just yet. I'm sure he was provoked.

Hmmm. TMZ, are both of those pictures taken after? If so you obtained two photos of her face, not "a photo" and the way you put them up, it looks like "before and after" only her nose looks the same in both photos. Just sayin.
