Rihanna Exploits Beating in New Video

Rihanna has released a new music video ... featuring an abusive relationship with a guy who looks JUST LIKE Chris Brown. Coincidence? We think not.

While Rihanna doesn't get beaten to a pulp in the video for "We Found Love," the guy does grab her face and inks the word 'mine' on her ass.

The video ends when a pushed-to-the-limit Rihanna gathers the strength to leave the dysfunctional relationship.
