Rihanna facial injuries that was allegedly taken at the crime scene leaked onto TMZ. The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the picture’s release, which angered Rihanna’s father, Ronald Fenty, as well as LAPD investigators, who called “the unauthorized release” of the image “serious misconduct.”
Twelve days after being involved in an altercation with boyfriend Chris Brown that reportedly left her with “horrific” injuries, Rihanna broke her silence and issued a statement through her representatives, People reports. “At the request of the authorities, Rihanna is not commenting about the incident involving Chris Brown,” reads the statement.
Prior to today’s statement, Rihanna’s publicist had only told reporters, “Rihanna is well. Thank you for concern and support.” That comment came on Grammy night, as artists and the press learned the “Disturbia” singer and Brown had both pulled out of the Awards at the last minute; their dispute occurred in the early-morning hours following Clive Davis’ annual Grammy party at the Beverly Hilton, where the pair were photographed together track the pair’s appearances on Grammy Weekend here.
