I agree with Rihanna’s people who said her injuries were not as bad as the media and blogs had been reporting.

For instance, someone exaggerated wildly when he said her eyes were swollen shut. Her eyes are not even swollen!

She simply closed her eyes — probably at the request of the officer taking the picture.

She has a few light contusions and bruising on her face. There is dried blood on her lip — probably from a laceration inside her mouth.

I’m not defending CB by any means, but Rihanna’s features appear to be distorted because the officer was standing so close to her face. Also, the exposure was way off. The cheapest consumer digital camera could have taken a better picture than that.

It would seem to me that the LAPD should be able to afford better equipment to present its evidence more accurately.

    Those 2 knots on her head seem horrific to me. I can’t imagine a man punching me so hard that contusions like that raise from my face.

  • licia

    i’m one of the people who is probably being told that i need my head checked for my opinions of the whole situation and although i can’t say it’s horrific, it’s pretty bad.

  • Daisy

    Sandra I am sure I will take heat from this. I agree with you though. At the end of the day she does NOT need to have any bruises. Bless their hearts. So sad.

  • licia

    i still want to know full details on what happened. we already knew she got hurt.

  • kcicero

    Sandra for one I’m pretty sure they took other pictures of her face. And we both know that what you see right now is not the full extent of the bruising. This was taken right after the attack which means that her face looked ten times worse then that at the hospital and even the next day. And I’m sure they have pictures of that as well.

  • intown51

    I disagree, she looks like she got her azz whooped, no joke intended. I’ve seen female victims of domestic violence, many times. They look just like her. Actually, sometime they don’t even look that bad.

    I never cast an opinion, but Chris is looking real bitchmade right now. I’m suprised MTV still used one of his songs for the dance show last night.

  • kcicero

    Me to intown…I thought it was distasteful.

  • Daisy

    Yes they sure did use a C Breezy song last night on MTV.

  • Daisy

    They used a Rihanna song as well.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    I WONDER WHAT CHRIS BROWN FACE LOOK LIKE? I FEEL BAD THAT SHE GOT “DUMMIED” UP BUT I AM STILL HOLDING MY POSITION UNTIL I KNOW THE WHOLE STORY. QUESTION, IF CHRIS FACE LOOKED LIKE THIS(OR WAS SCRATCHED AND BITTEN UP) AND HAD PRESSED CHARGES AGAINST RIHANNA WOULD ANY OF YOU STILL BE PREACHING THE SAME SERMON?

    STILL HOLDING OUT FOR THE WHOLE STORY(TRUE)…..

  • lialin

    sandra is crazy she looks like she got knnocked the f*ck out! and since it was right after the so you KNOW the next day the color to the bruises got brighter, the knots got bigger… i mean i dont know the full details and while i was riding the fence that girl didnt need to get beat like THAT no matter what the arguement was about… keys thrown or whatever. CB snapped BAD and if his career wasnt in jeopardy before…. after these pics… it definitely will be. This is not acceptable i’m sorry…wait no i’m not. this is mad wrong either way you look at it. he doesnt look a thing like this

  • lexdiamonz

    umm i am sorry what does it matter he knotted up her head both sides busted her lip and drew blood WTF!!! yo lock his azz up what the bloodclatt fuckery is this even a debate for…. his corny, cornball azz need to be dancing in a cell…

  • Daisy

    @Lex I always said he was corny but cute and I love his music and he can dance his a@@ off..lol

  • BLACKBARBIE404

    IN ANY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CASE ANY TYPE OF SCAR IS TOO DAMN MUCH IN MY OPINION…. WRONG IS WRONG..

    SO WHAT, IT MAY NOT BE WHAT PPL THOUGHT IT WAS. IT’S STILL DEAD AZZ WRONG.

    JUSTIFYING HOW MUCH “DAMAGE” WAS DONE IS ABSURD!!!

  • kcicero

    @munco it would be the same kind of outrage for me but since its not your question is a mute point. SMH the nerve of some people. Now let me ask all you Chris lover’s this…if this was you or your mother, sister, niece, cousin, friend and done by someone whose pants you didn’t want to jump into would YOU still being singing the same tune? I highly doubt it. It’s answers like this that make people stay silent and never report abuse.

  • aqtpie

    I don’t give a damn how bad her injuries are or aren’t. My thing is, “they shouldn’t be there in the first f’ng place”!!!!! They both need counseling. I do believe SOME people can be rehabilited, only after they stop making up excuses and allowing others to make up excuses for their behavior.

    There were allegations *that I believe* that people close to them, in both of their camps saw abuse between the two but looked the other way. Just by reading comments on various blogs, I can see how that happened!!!

  • kcicero

    And we already know what his face look like because they have pictures of him before and after turning himself in so again another mute question.

  • aqtpie

    I meant *rehabilitated*. kcicero your baby is beautiful!!!

  • JustSaying

    OK, I am with #10. I still holding judgement until I get both sides of the story. I want to see what Chris looked like after the fight. I bet he had scratchs and got punched too. I just can’t picture him out of the blue beating her behind.

    And it kills me to her people say he didn’t have to beat her like that. Well, if she was whaling on him and he snapped for a few you can’t control what happens. I bet my check she was talking crap and started hitting on him and he snapped punched her a few times like a nicca on the street. He then came to himself and saw what he had done and stop.

    Ladies you can’t go around punching, scratching and trying to fight a man and then want them to hit you back soft. Bull crap.

    I am not saying what Chris did was justified but I am saying Rhi needs to take some of the blame as well.

  • licia

    kc i don’t think anyone is excusing what he did by wanting to know the full details of what happened.

  • starr

    I actually agree with Sandra. I was sorta expecting alot worse. Not excusin chris by any means…..but I still want the whole story

  • licia

    ^^^ this is what p*sses me off the most . why in the h*ll didn’t anyone from both camps do anything ? someone should have stepped in when it happened the first time. if my family knew i was fighting with a fool everyday you better believe they are gonna do something about it before it gets this bad.

  • aqtpie

    You damn skippy Licia!!!

  • Lala11_7

    Wow…

    Well…I don’t need the whole story…I don’t need to hear all of the facts…

    The reason why this world is so messed up now is because folks put too much gray into black and white situations…

    MEN SHOULDN’T HIT WOMEN PERIOD!!!

    Just like…

    MEN SHOULD NOT SLEEP WITH UNDERAGED GIRLS…PERIOD!!!

    It would be nice…if my people would get more MORALISTICALLY DEFINITIVE!!!

  • kcicero

    Licia I agree with you there.

    Thanks aqtpie 🙂

    Here’s the thing this is the equivalent of what has just happened. A man rapes a woman. Instead of people supporting this woman they ask her to what she did to make herself a target for this rape. THIS IS LUDICROUS DON’T YOU PEOPLE SEE? I know if this was you or your loved ones we wouldn’t be having this discussion but its just so sad that most of the people in our community have no compassion for our own people.

    This is why we are killing out brothers and sisters with no regard because we have no compassion for others only our own shit.

  • leat

    Horrific or not its bad. who are we to decide how “horrific” the pics are. DAMN what happened to all the Rhianna love on this site!

  • intensemocha

    OKAY-SO FOR ALL THOSE WHO DOUBTED SHE HAD EVEN BEEN BEATEN

    WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY FOR YOUR BOY CHRIS BROWN NOW-I HATE DUMB BIATCHES AND YES I MEAN THAT! SOME OF YOU WILL MAKE ASONINE EXCUSES FOR NICCAS ALL DAY LONG AND TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY YOUR DUMB AZZEZ WILL BLAME THE VICTIM

    THERE IS NOTHING THAT SHE COULD HAVE DONE TO WARRANT GETTING HER AZZ KICKED LIKE THIS AND FOR YOU STUPID-YES I SAID STUPID MOFOS WHO SAID WHAT DID CHRIS LOOK LIKE AFTERWARDS DID YOU NOT SEE THE PHOTOS OF HIM IN HIS BLACK TRUCK AFTER HE WAS RELEASED FROM JAIL ON BAIL-HE DID HAVE ON FUGGING MARK ON HIS FACE THE ONLY VISIBLE SIGNS OF A FIGHT WERE ON HIS HANDS-BITE MARKS PROBABLY FROM RIHANNA’S TEETH AS HE WAS PUNCHING HER IN THE MOUTH

    I BET YOU HEFFAS ARE THE SAME DUMB AZZES THAT ARE ON THE NEWS TALKING ABOUT MY SON DIDN’T DO IT, IF HE DID IT SOMEBODY ELES MADE HIM, OR HE WAS FRAMED-DUH

    THE MOTHERFUCCA DID IT AND NOW HIS AZZ IS GOING TO HAVE TO SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES POP TEEN IDOL OR NOT, INFATUATED FANS OR NOT

    WHOLE STORY MY AZZ IT DOESN’T TAKE A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED-HE WHUPPED HER AZZ, BUT OF COURSSE YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE A FEW DELUSIONED WANNA BE EYE SPY WHO THINKS THEY HAVE INSIGHT ON A SITUATION THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS-WHOMP WHOMP IT’S A WRAP FOLKS YOUR BOY IS GOING DOWN, TRUST AND BELIEVE!

  • kcicero

    Wow intense that was…well intense. I agree 100%

  • http://myspace.com/katgirl33 katgirl33

    HE ain’t have to do her like that…I don’t give a damn what happened!

  • licia

    why do you all have to be so disrespectful to get your point across? i’m a dumb bitch because i don’t see things in the way that everybody else does. that’s foul . i don’t recall anyone saying she didn’t get beat . i recall alot of people saying they needed to hear both sides before they jumped on the kill chris brown train .

  • jazi65

    who gives a dam what cb looks like..no man should put his hands on a woman..even if she did hit him he should have put her out the car, called the police, anything but what we see in this pic.

    I don’t care what the argument was about NOBODY deserves to get beat..and this pic doesn’t even tell the whole story as this was taken before the swelling set in. This girl is scarred physically as well as emotionally.I pray her healing process has already begun and her fam & friends stand by her.

    As for CB – you say you seeking guidance from your pastor, mom & the Lord…funny how people wanna run to the Lord when the fire gets hot. If your behind was with the Lord from the jump this might not have happen. And when he gets you over this hump…and only the Lord can..I hope he realizes what he has done, asks for forgiveness (from rih rih as well as the Lord) and try to get his life back in order.

  • Naima

    Can someone tell me what a “light” contusion is. I mean a contusion is a contusion right?

    Simmer on that for a minute…

  • dakotab

    Sandra – please take these pictures down. This is terrible. I know that TMZ.com has already posted it and the world is looking at it but out of respect and support for RHIANNA and some type of female unity, I wish that all of the popular urban blogs would remove these pictures.

  • intensemocha

    WHAT MAKES ME SO ENRAGED IS THE FACT THAT “WOMEN” WHO ARE SUPPOSE TO NURTURE AND PROTECT ARE SO BLINDED AND BRAINWASHED WHEN IT COMES TO MEN & THEIR BEHAVIORS

    THIS WOMAN WAS BEATEN AND ALL YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT IS I WANNO KNOW THE WHOLE STORY OR HEAR CHRIS BROWN’S SIDE-BEFORE I RUSH TO JUDGEMENT

    IN MY OPINION, THIS IS A HUGE PART OF WHY ARE SOCIETY IS THE WAY IT IS-BECAUSE WE BLACK WOMEN HATE ONE ANOTHER WE DON’T DEFEND ONE ANOTHER-WE RAISE OUR GIRLS AND LET OUR BOYS RUN AMUCK-THEY ARE NOT HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS DUE TO THE SAME MIND SET YOUR EXHIBITING ON THIS WEB SITE-WE RATIONALIZE ABUSE, RAPE, VIOLENCE, ADULTERY, PHILANDERING, AND ILLEGITIMATE CHILDREN AND SINGLE PARENT HOMES-BECAUSE SOMEHOW IN OUR MINDS MEN’S EGOS ARE SO FRAGILE THAT WE REFUSE TO CALL A SPADE A SPADE

    THAT NICCA CHRIS BROWN WHUPPED RIHANNA’S AZZ-WHO CARES WHY???? AND WHEN YOU FIND OUT WHY DOES IT CHANGE THE OUTCOME-RIHANNA IN THE END STILL WAS BEAT UP

    LET ME GUESS WERE YOU ONE OF THE ONES WHO SAID THAT THE GIRL R-KELLY PISSED ON KNEW WHAT SHE WAS DOING-HE STILL THE KING OF R & B AND I WOULD GIVE HIM SOME-YEAH PROBABLY

  • luvly1957

    My GOD, intense you r too intense. Yes, he whupped her azz and yes she is bruised and it probably did look worse the next day but darn you must have been a victim cuz u are so upset. But first, let me say violence begets violence. NO MAN SHOULD BEAT ANY WOMAN REGARDLESS OF WHAT SHE DOES!!!!!

  • intensemocha

    SWEETIE BEST BELIEVE I AINT GETTING MY AZZ WHUPPED NONE YA HEARD MY MIND SET IS TO FRAGILE I WOULD KILL A NICCA TRUST AND BELIEVE-MY OWN DADDY HAS NEVER LAID A HAND ON ME AND I HAVE SEVEN BROTHERS AND THEY HAVE NEVER PUT A HAND ON ME SO I LEARNED FROM THEM THAT A WOMAN SHOULD NEVER BE TREATED IN THAT MANNER

    SO I HAVE STRONG OPINIONS WHO GIVE A FUG-THAT’S ME

    AND PLEASE FIND ONE REPORT OR SPECULATION OR EVEN REPORTED GOSSIP THAT RIHANNA HIT HIM……AND GET BACK TO ME

    I WISH A NICCA WOULD PUT HIS HANDS ON ME-I AINT THE BADDEST BUT YOU COULD BEST BELIEVE WHEN ALL THE DUST CLEARED -THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A 911 CALL ALRIGHT WITH ME SCREAMING AND HANGING UP THE PHONE AND BY THE TIME THE POLICE GOT THERE -ME AND MY PEOPLEZ WOULD HAVE BEAT THAT NICCA NEAR DEATH-JUST SO HE COULD SERVE TIME IN JAIL AND FOREVER REMEMBER MY AZZ AND WHY HE SHOULD HAVE NEVER LAID A HAND ON ME AND THAT’S ON MY KIDZ…TRY ME

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    My dear, sweet, innocent Sandra. You are so precious. You’ve never seen domestic violence up close and personal have you? You are so lucky. There is nothing wrong with the camera angle. Princess Rhi Rhi is just that jacked up. On top of that these are fresh bruises taken moments after the attack. Heck blood is still on her mouth. I don’t know who said her eyes were swollen. There were some reports that came out that I didn’t believe. I didn’t believe anything said by family members, none of whom even said they had seen her. Her eyes are already beginning to swell in this pic as you can see by looking at her brow line on BOTH eyes. You can rest assured that the next day they were swollen shut. I know you’re a photographer and all, but the pic is not as distorted as you seem to think. Her face is distorted from the beat down.

  • Daisy

    @Bird her father had seen h er when he commented and he said she had some brusises but he never seemed all upset IMO. So I took that to mean it wasnt as bad as the media reported. He did say he didnt want her to go back to him but thats what any father would say any good one that is.

  • h0tsauce

    I’ve unfortunately been in a domestic abuse situation and Rihanna got fu**ed up. She has two knots on the side of her head. Her mouth loks like it was bleeding and they cleaned it up the best they could. believe me….this pictures is bad..but we need to see the pics of a couple of days later because that is when the black n blue comes out. then you can see everywhere she got hit.

  • Daisy

    @KC I support both of them. Always have. I prayed for BOTH of them and I wish them BOTH the best in the future.

  • GAGIRL73

    IT’S A DIFFRENCE BETWEEN AND A “REAL MAN” AND A SO CALLED “MAN” IT’S CALLED A BOY AND THAT GOES BOTH WAYS TO BE FAIR!

MY MOMS TAUGHT ME A MALE PUTTING HIS HANDS ON YOU OUT OF ANGER IS NOT CHOICE YOU WILL ACCPETED!MY HUSBAND AND I ARE TEACHING MY SON AND DAUGHTHER THE SAME!!! I WISH MY SON MIGHT PUT HIS HANDS ON A FEMALE OUT ANGER, SAME FOR MY LITTLE GIRL WITH A MALE MATE OR HE PUT HIS HANDS ON MY LITTLE GIRL! LOOK FOR ME ON CNN IN THE NEON ORANGE SUIT WITH THE SHACKLES AND ALL!!!!!!!!! REAL TALK!

  • missamerica

    Put yourself in Rihanna’s shoes and see if you have the same opinion. What if this was your face?

    I have a problem with the fact that this went down in a Lamborghini after leaving Clive Davis’ party and these two were set to perform the next day. This ish had to be apart of the relationship. Talk about taking ish for granted.

    If niccas spoke out against Michael Vick and ganged up with PETA on that ish, I want to see what the industry has to say after seeing this picture. Chris got issues. There was nothing she could have said to deserve this, what could she have possibly said? Again, this was Grammy weekend,these are two pop stars.

    Chris is not some unemployed ex-con that can’t take the pressures of the world because the man is coming down on him or some drug dealer that has to prove his manhood because his girl got out of line in front of his boys on the corner.

    @Intensemocha, you get a round of applause!

    Chris is 19, recalling from my teenage years, I knew a few guys that found it okay to whup on a girl. It went from love taps, to play wrestling, to passion mark biting, to full out whup azz. Yes there were stages, which are actually signs.

  • Deep Thoughts

    I don’t know Sandra I think you just wanted to take this opportunity to flaunt your expertise as a photographer. Most people know swelling doesn’t occur immediately in fact it’s often worst the next day. Judging by these injuries they where ten times worst the next day.

  • intensemocha

    SWEETIE YOU OR NOBODY ELSE ON A BLOG IS THAT SERIOUS TO CATCH AN EMOTION ABOUT-SO TRUST NOT MAD ONE BIT THIS IS JUST HOW I POST ALL THE TIME

    YOUR ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION BY ALL MEANS-I’M NOT HERE TO CHANGE ANYONE’S MIND THAT MY DEAR IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO DO YOURSELF

  • missamerica

    All Chris had was marks on his knuckles.

    I guess Rihanna shouldn’t have hit his fists with her face.

    Scratching is considered self-defense marks, if there were any I didn’t see it. But there were no reports of Rihanna having a gun or a knife to justify him knocking some sense into her.

    I just hope the “WHOLE STORY” comes out, whatever!

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    I AM NO CHRIS BROWN LOVER, AS I SAID I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR THE WHOLE STORY. HELL I AM A WOMAN BUT I KNOW I MYSELF HAVE PUNCHED MY BOYFRIEND BEFORE SEVERAL TIMES, AND I HAVE GIVEN HIM A BLACK EYE IN THE PROCESS. NO HE DIDN’T HIT BACK IMMEDIATELY, HE DID TELL ME TO STOP HITTING ON HIM, I DIDN’T BUT EVENTUALLY HE DID, BOTH OF US HAD A BLACK EYE IN THE END. SO ME KNOWIING THAT I HAVE PUT MY HANDS ON SOME ONE BECAUSE THEY HAD PISSED ME OFF, LETS ME KNOW THERE ARE ALWAYS 2 SIDES, NO 3 SIDES TO A STORY, HIS SIDE, HER SIDE, AND THEN THE TRUTH! JUST BECAUSE I AM NOT UP IN ARMS SAYING “SEND HIM TO JAIL” OR ANY OF THE OTHER JUDGMENTAL COMMENTS DOESN’T MEAN THAT DON’T HAVE COMPASSION FOR RIHANNA. WHEN I FIRST SAW THE PHOTO, MY HEART WEPT, I FELT BAD FOR HER. ALL AND ALL I AM NOT THE JUDGE(GOD)

  • iscream

    My baby aint hurt nobody. But he still got smoked at Bey Bey’s party…

  • kcicero

    Well Muncho that explains a lot…In any case Chris didn’t have a black eye so what’s the excuse? Again every point that you make is mute.

  • intensemocha

    WELL HERE ON EARTH THE JUDGE AND JURY WILL BE THE ONES WHO WILL JUDGE CHRIS BROWN AND HIS ACTIONS AND JUDGING FROM THE PHOTO-HE DID THE CRIME AND HE SHOULD DO THE TIME

    IT’S NOT THAT I DON’T HAVE ANY COMPASSION FOR CHRIS BROWN-IT’S VERY UNFORTUNATE SITUATION-BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY A CRIME WAS COMMITTED AND BECAUSE OF HIS ACTIONS ALONE WILL BE THE REASON HE GOES TO JAIL AND LOSES HIS CAREER-AND THAT ALONE IN ITSELF WILL TEACH HIM A VERY VALUABLE LESSON HE SHOULD HAVE ALREADY KNEW-YOU DON’T BEAT UP ON A WOMAN

    IF SHE HAD BRUISES ON HER ARMS FROM HIM HOLDING HER DOWN TO PREVENT HER FROM ATTACKING HIM-OK I COULD GO FOR THAT BUT HER BRUISES SHOW THAT HE BLATANTLY GOT AT HER LIKE A NICCA AND THAT WAS UNCALLED FOR-HIS “BLACKOUT” “TEMPER” OR WHATEVER ALLOWED HIM TO LOSE SELF-CONTROL IS THE REASON HE’S IN THIS MESS-I PRAY HE GETS SOME HELP BECAUSE IF THIS HAD BEEN A MAN THE OUTCOME WOULD HAVE PROBABLY BEEN MUCH DIFFERENT YOUR BOY CHRIS MAY HAVE BEEN SHOT DEAD! IT’S OBVIOUS HE NEEDS HELP BUT DON’T BLAME RIHANNA OR THROW HER UNDER THE BUS BECAUSE YOUR BOY LACKS SELF-CONTROL-THAT HIS PROBLEM NOT HERS……….

  • speakinmymind

    the proper word is MOOT, not “mute”…a moot point

    and i don’t feel anybody’s OPINIONS are moot just because they differ from mine. i also don’t think that just because some people want the facts instead of innuendo and gossip doesn’t mean they’re supporting Chris Brown or saying Rihanna is to blame. life isn’t just black and white…that’s why there’s GRAY…and i truly think this situation has a lot of gray area that we will never know about. he!!, i think BOTH of them are young hotheads, feeding off ego and got into a situation they weren’t emotionally prepared for. sadly, it is playing out in public which isn’t good for either of them.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    SPEAKINMYMIND I SEE YOU HAVE INTELLIGENCE ON YOUR SIDE. I SEE INTENSEMOCHA FEEL AS THOUGH I AM A CHRIS BROWN SUPPORTER, I AM NOT SUPPORTING CHRIS, NOR AM I BLAMING RIHANNA.

THEY ARE BOTH YOUNG, I AM NOT HERE TO JUDGE NEITHER OF THEM. I FEEL AS THOUGH THIS SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN BLOWN UP IN THE MEDIA, ESPECIALLY HER PHOTO.

    Daisy,

    The People article kinda made it seem like Rihanna’s father had seen her although he didn’t outright say that. So he confirmed for either E! or Us Weekly that he HAD NOT seen her. Once he said that I didn’t believe any of the the family that were commenting. They were just trying to get their 15 minutes.

  • kcicero

    And I am full of faults but who is not? I really don’t get the point of that statement but whatever I have bigger fish to fry so please know that whatever it is that I say is me saying how I feel I don’t catch feelings and I would hope no one else does either…and if they did then that’s their problem.

  • kcicero

    @ Bird I too thought that as well. This is just getting a little much though. I want them both to release a statement I don’t care what it says, so this story can die down…

  • terika83

    They are horrific to me and appear to be exactly how they were initially described by the LAPD…her fam. tried to downplay it to take attention off of it. But two knots like that…two black eyes….a busted mouth…bruises on her face…I mean that’s pretty bad…Poor Rih Rih….he must have went into a rage.

    I hope you are not still with your boyfriend who gave you a black eye in retaliation. Whatever he did that caused you to get violent was probably grounds for a breakup. You hitting him was grounds for a breakup. Him hitting you was grounds for a breakup. The fact all three things occured means both of you are out of control. No you shouldn’t hit a man, but if he was a for real for real man he would have gotten the hell out of dogde when you hit him rather than stand around telling you to stop when you already proved you were out of control. HE SHOULD HAVE LEFT. His behavior is as inexcuseable(sp) as yours and moreso because he is physically stronger than you. I don’t care what you heard to the contrary. We have got to stop excusing these men’s bad behavior. And what did he do to piss you off so bad? Did you forget about that?

    I too had to learn not to hit. As afraid as I was of my abusive ex, when I caught him cheating I hit him several times because he went to sleep rather than argue with me when he walked in the house at 6am. That was grounds for me to leave. Instead I stayed up all night waiting for him to get home with visions of him rolling in bed with some chick dancing in my head. HE WAS WRONG.

    I’m not going to go on and on. I just hope you ladies that think there is something Rhi Rhi could possibly have done to ask for this change your tune at some point. We are the ones raising these men so now you can see where they get their attitudes from.

  • Daisy

    @KC now you know you had some tone in a few of your comments its all good we all have before. Just keep it real..lol

    @Bird ok that makes sense cause I always said her father wasn’t as mad/upset as I thought he would be..lol Now that makes sense. The cousin said her brusies were minor as well. Guess she was lying as well.

  • Daisy

    @Bird I don’t think the people who want to know what RiRi did or didnt do are saying Chris was justified in his actions, I think it’s wanting to know the full story for the sake of being nosey which is none of our business at the end of the day. I could be wrong as always..lol

    Daisy,

    Oh please believe I’m nosey as all get out and I’m anxiously awaiting the Rihanna or Chris Browon book even if they take 10/20 years to write them. I just GOTTA know what happened that night. But that is not the message I am getting from some of the comments. Some people still want to know what Rihanna did to provoke Chris. I hope the boy is attending counselling as we speak and preparing his press conference.

    Why is everyone always shocked by Intense? She been raging for years. She reminds me of Khia. If you get through all the name calling, cursing and general ghetto talk she makes sense much of the time. Her presentation is just hostile, hence the name.

    Bird I completely agree with you as I said before I stuck my husband while we were in an intense argument in front of my baby boy no less and he held my hands until I calmed down. It was quite a silly agrument too because I don’t even remember what started it. But if ever got to the point you described above the best thing to do on the women’s part is to walk away.

    With that said I just really don’t believe there is anything on this earth that would convince me that it is okay for a man to beat another woman down like that. I know there are three sides to every story and my point is whatever Chris’s side, Rhianna’s side(she still has not made a statement so I’m still waiting for her confirmation) and the truth’s side doesn’t matter to me.

    The fact is that a woman who happens to be a super star was very seriously beaten…(hell I didn’t even look like that when I got stomped by 10 boys and girls in middle school) by Chris a man who happens to be a super star. It was wrong period. And I’m not going to pray for a serial killer, suicide bomber, molester or woman beater but I would hope that God softens their heart and allows them to get the help that they so desperately need.

    Okay off my soap box and I am officially done with this whole sichuascion.

    @ speak

    You saved me time and energy today…lol I didnt even have to type anything. Thanks!! :O)

    @Bird he has time to prepare for his press conf. it won’t come before his court date on the 5th and might not happen then. Bless his heart. I can’t say enough how I hate this for BOTH of them. Heartbreaking. I wonder if his mother feels guilty that she didn’t get him help sooner. I pray for that family and hers.

  • Daisy

    @Lady I still said my 2cents but yes Speak was all in my head today on this subject.

  • aqtpie

    I’m trying to keep a mental list of which celebs/celeb stories that need facts before opinions, which ones you can comment and it’s considered an opinion and the others it’s judging or siding with, which celebs/celeb stories you take up for and are considered a stan but in others merely an observer who wants to give everyone an equal chance. Which stories deserves prayers and which ones don’t. Let me go back and read some of these posts and comments, I hope they were ALL treated with this same godly love.

    I’M AN AQUARIUS AND A BON A FIDE HELL RAISER-SOME LIKE IT SOME DON’T- I LOVE IT!

    Aqtpie (love the play on words with ur name) # 83 when you get that list please post it for me, thanks.

  • Deelze

    I am 100% with you on all counts intensemocha…you said a mouth full and all of it truth!!! I am sorry I too do not need to hear “all” the details before making a judgment. He hit her, or should I say beat her…what more do you need to know i will use my fav quote for the day the proof is in the pudding!! HELLO!

    The other lady that said she hit her boyfriend and gave him a black eye and they both ended up with black eyes honestly my dear not being judgmental you need to get help and leave that relationship! It is toxic…not just to your health but to your mind set! IT IS NOT OK FOR ANYONE MALE OR FEMALE TO HIT ON THE OTHER PERSON…PERIOD!!!!!! We all get mad and want to do someone bodily harm at one time or another…but you shouldn’t! We should never act when we are heated it always leads to bad things happening…it is the same for a parent who abuses his or her child…it’s just not done! DO NOT HIT!

    But all in all…like Jay-Z said…”You have to have compassion for others. Just imagine it being your sister or mom and then think about how we should talk about that”!

    We are all human and none of us are perfect. This world that we live in makes too many excuses for everything that is wrong and that is why the world is the way it is! Someone else is always to blame…no one takes responsibility for their own actions!

    And that’s a damn shame!

    @ Daisy, iscream, ladyrazor and MUNCHOSGIRL

    thanks for the love!!

    @ MUNCHOSGIRL

    is Munchos your boyfriend/husband’s nickname? i’ve been wanting to ask you about that? i don’t know anyone named Munchos but think it’s an unusual name/nickname.

    @12) Lexidiamond: PREACH!!!

  • ChokLitFactory

    I also must comment on Intense Mocha’s statements. Girl, I think you are right ON. Black people just frustrate me. Women I know are QUICK to say, Well what did Rihanna do to deserve this? She must have provoked him. Poor Chris. WHAT? I don’t get this mentality. I don’t care if she took your child away from you (which is wrong, yes)but throwing the keys to your rented lambo out the window does NOT constitute a beatdown. Stop with this backwards-ass thinking and grow the fuck up! Everyone else in the world feels bad for Rih Rih and condemns Chris for his actions – except for us. For shame!!

  • aqtpie

    Thanks iscream, lol about that list. =)
    I know from experience that denial/enablers do more harm than well intentions, well that’s my opinion. Example: My bad a$$ baby brother was into robbery. Here he was 13 robbing people who worked hard for the nice things they had in there houses, and yet he was never made to be held accountable for that. *Well by my immediate family*

    Even when he was guilty as sin and got in trouble, guess who went and got him out, put money on his books, got him a lawyer, went and visited him etc… My mother. I helped with bail, visitation, money on his books etc… WE *my family and I*, helped create that little monster and then when he and his friends robbed a convenience store, and we found the gun in the shed, had the nerve to wonder where he went wrong. Saw all kinds of signs, who in the hell give their friends tv’s, stereos, game systems, games etc… Hell even a gold class ring from the 70’s *come on now* again very few questions asked. Maybe someone we aren’t kin to passed it down to him? J/K

    I do think things may have been different had we called the police every time we found anything suspect, gave no money, didn’t visit or write him *after the 1st time*. Didn’t bail his a$$ out of jail and every bad situation he put himself in, until the very last time we COULDN’T help anymore. As many people as we had praying for this juvenile REPEAT offender, I know everyone on here was praying. LOL!! I do know people can change, because he has.

  • Daisy

    Wondering when anybody on this post said he shouldnt be held accountable? I went back and skimmed through the comments so I could have missed it but I clare I didnt see anybody say that *sighs*

  • Sindy

    Sandra, I’ve been saying the same thing since I’ve seen these photo, Rihanna injuries were extremely exaggerated. I even read somewhere online that her face was so damage that she would need plastic surgery. I’m not cool with what Chris did to her but this is anything but horrific.

  • aqtpie

    Sighs with relief, that from day one in this case, I have always use the words me, my, mine and I as in NOBODY HAS TO BE IN THE SAME BOAT. Extra glad that I don’t pick and choose too!!! MHHHHH!!!!

  • kdillon

    The pictures are horrific. RIhanna had to be taken to the hospital hours later because the swelling and bruising was so bad. The hospital has pictures as well to show the black eyes, and other damages Chris caused. Some of you must have grown up in abusive households because I dont care how many times a chick hits a man he should be able to restrain her or call the cops. Chris is trained in martial arts, he knows how to subdue an attacker. If Chris is innocent why did he leave her on the streets of L.A. by herself? If Chris was innocent why did he have a warrant for his arrest and didnt turn himself in until 12-14 hours later with his lawyers. The lambo has no damage to it, so there was no accident.
    Chris Brown reportedly has a scratch on his face and we saw his bruised knuckles. Rihanna was more than slapped she was abused. I dont need to hear the whole story to know what happened, the picture says it all. When the story is told its not going to makee the pictures seen okay, it will make him look even mor stupid.
    CHRIS BROWN’S CAREER IS OVER! HIS FANBASE ARE YOUNG GIRLS….THIS IS THE REAL SIDE OF HIM. THERE ARE MANY CELEB FEMALES ARE BEING ABUSED AT HOME WE JUST DONT KNOW, AND JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE MONEY MEANS THEY HAVE MORE MENTAL ISSUES

  • terika83

    @kdillion…I grew up in an abusive household…I wasn’t abused but my mother was. :o/ ….me? Never had a beating before…not once.

  • keely107

    Sandra, I wish I would have caught it earlier but your reader intense mocha is SOOOO outta pocket! It makes no sense to disrespect people, whomever, because you feel differently about a situation! We are grown, and speaking from one adult to another in that manner is uncalled for. I wont get upset, cause I am not the one for tongue wrestling so no need to get all worked up over some ignorance and popping that will NEVER amoutn to anything. Yes he is wrong, no matter what the extent of her injuries, but nothing OFFICIAL was released until today. I took it as the individuals making the comments, such as myself, were practicing what the laws of this country states and that is an individual is innocent until proven guilty. Folks come on this site and lash out and say what they wanna say and its all good as long as the offended party isnt you or someone who is gonna cry about it. That name calling and shat she was doing…..like I said before I dont feel so passionate about the situation anyways I hope they both get themselves together, but like I say THATS JUST ME, I have too many loose strings in my own affairs to tighten up to be round here giving a fluck about some individuals who the recession aint affecting. So if getting all excited about being right concerning something that you ASSUMED initially get your panties moist so be it, but I have a life!

    @ keely107:

    I didn’t read these comments until a little while ago. Everyone is tense and upset about this situation. The picture brought out a lot of anger and raw emotions in people. Don’t take the comments personally.

  • Daisy

    I do not believe his career is over. He still has a ton of fans. He has a movie coming out later this year.

    @Sandra why couldnt you tell ole girl not to take the comments personally that made you break up what you thought were clicks? I will be at the ray sun early service. Not dancing but will be in attendance.

    Daisy, I usually don’t ban anyone unless they have gone too far. I think I am very fair when it comes to banning members who are repeatedly rude and disrespectful to other members.

    I’ll probably attend on Sunday as well. I’ll either be way in the back or up top. 🙂
