TMZ has released a photo of the injuries sustained by Rihanna.... and it looks terrible. PerezHilton notes that as the picture was taken very soon after the attack the full extent of the bruising and swelling was not shown, and I think he's probably right. After all of the inconsistent stories published by media outlets I wasnt convinced that her injuries were as bad as people were saying - but a picture speaks a thousand words. And although innocent until proven guilty, this photograph alone is pretty damning for Chris, at least in the eyes of the public, because I can't think of anything that may have 'transpired' that could justify this. Either way, this whole thing is just messed up.

And to make it just that little bit worse, the picture has been leaked on the singers 21st birthday.

The folowing statement was released by the LAPD:

Los Angeles: The unauthorized release of a domestic violence photograph immediately generated an internal investigation.

At about 7 p.m. on February 19, 2009, the Los Angeles Police Department Media Relations Section began receiving numerous inquiries about the release of a photograph associated with a domestic violence incident that occurred on February 8, 2009, involving entertainer Chris Brown. The photograph appeared on an entertainment website. The photograph has the appearance of one taken during an official Domestic Violence investigation.

The Los Angeles Police Department takes seriously its duty to maintain the confidentiality of victims of domestic violence.

The Department launched an immediate internal investigation and subsequently filed a personnel complaint.

A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination.

Anyone with information concerning the unauthorized release of the photograph is asked to call, during regular business hours, (213) 485-4152. After-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to our 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247). Callers may also text “CRIMES” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web Tips. When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.” Tipsters may remain anonymous.

In other news, the singers album Good Girl Gone Bad has increased in sales by a massive 31%. Is this what it takes to sell albums now? She's been promoting the crap out of this album for over a year now, and all of a sudden people now feel the urge to go and buy it? Its just pathetic really.
