Los Angeles police have launched an official investigation into how a photograph allegedly showing a badly bruised Rihanna was leaked on the internet.
The shocking snap, which was posted on celebrity website TMZ.com, features a close-up of what appears to be the Umbrella singer with contusions on her forehead, a swollen nose and a bloody lip.
The injuries are said to relate to a reported fight between the singer and her boyfriend Chris Brown in the early hours of 8 February (09), which allegedly left her in need of hospital treatment.
Brown was charged with making criminal threats following the incident.

L.A. police have refused to confirm the identity of the woman in the photo, but admit the picture was taken during a recent domestic violence investigation.
The Los Angeles police department (LAPD) has confirmed it will open an enquiry into how the picture of Brown’s alleged victim was leaked to the media. While there is no confirmation that the woman involved in the Chris Brown case is his former girlfriend Rihanna, the Roman numeral tattoo seen on the woman’s shoulder in the photograph concerned is identical to the Umbrella star’s.A police source close to the investigation into Brown’s arrest is quoted by E! News as saying the photo leaked online was taken close to the scene of the alleged attack in Hancock Park.
“There was another set taken at the hospital where the swelling is even worse,” the source added.
The law enforcement inside source is also quoted as claiming the fight began when Rihanna intercepted a text message to Brown’s mobile phone from another woman.
The Disturbia star is said to have told police that this wasn’t the first time Brown had been physically abusive towards her, but according to the police source, “she may have thrown the first punch” on this occasion.

Los Angeles police are reportedly investigating the possibility of a history of heated rows between RIHANNA and CHRIS BROWN in the wake of the R&B star’s alleged attack on his girlfriend at the weekend.
The probe comes as it was revealed by police sources that the Umbrella hitmaker was forced to wear an eye patch last year (08), after suffering an alleged scratched cornea.
Brown was arrested on Sunday (08Feb09) and charged with making criminal threats after a heated exchange in Los Angeles that morning, hours before he and Rihanna were due to attend the Grammy Awards.
Reports later suggested the woman involved was his girlfriend, who was allegedly hospitalised after the fight – although no official confirmation as to the female’s identity is yet to be declared.
And now officials are set to look into whether Brown caused the star’s previous cornea injury, reports Britain’s The Sun newspaper.
A police source tells the publication, “We’re investigating if her eye injury could have been caused by Brown.
“There could be an innocent explanation – but police believe Rihanna has previously refused to make a complaint against Brown. She is now being asked about her past injuries and is beginning to open up about incidents in their relationship.”
The tabloid alleges that the 20-year-old was reluctant to file a police complaint after the weekend’s incident – but was persuaded to by her mum Monica.
And cops are now reportedly talking to those close to Rihanna about an alleged history of injuries.
The source contines, “We’re talking to her friends and management, who say she’s appeared with mysterious marks or injuries before, but always refused to explain what happened.
“There was one instance when she suddenly appeared with an eye patch, saying her cornea had been scratched.”

Whether true or not I found this piece humourous.
RIhanna was left red-faced during a recent trip to the UK — after being mistaken for Prince.
The Umbrella hitmaker, 20, was in London late September when she was mistaken for the Purple Rain rocker.
Fans approached the short-haired star, according to reports, and were left shocked when they discovered he was a she.
A source says, “Some fans screamed out, ‘Prince!’ when they saw her.
“But when they got close enough to ask for an autograph, they realized he was a she.”

“I’d go out and get drunk, but that’s what teenage girls do in Barbados,” the 19-year-old told the tabloid. “The country’s pretty laid-back about the legal age for drinking. But I never went too over the top. I wasn’t exactly in Amy Winehouse mode. I’d seen what alcohol and drugs had done to my dad and I wasn’t going to follow in his footsteps. I knew my limits when I was a kid and I still do.”
“I might have a few drinks, but I don’t get tipsy too easily. I don’t ever get to the point where I want to throw up, can’t stand up straight or say things I’m likely to regret in the morning,” she said. Source – The Mail On Sunday.
Man, this reminds me of growing up and my father giving us 4 sibilings a shot of rum as he put it “to kill de worms”. LOLLLLLLLL. Thankfully no one out turn out to be a drunkard or a rummie!!! LOLLLLLLLLLL.
In all seriousness though, I can’t wait for the day when the authorities charged adults for sending young ones to the shop to buy their favourite liquor, charge shopkeepers for such and crackdown on excessive drinking by teenagers at fetes/parties. At least the government here regulates the alcoholic industry but it needs to do more.

I wonder if Rihanna threw away her chance of any future modelling career since these March photos. The first cut was okay but I dislike her short hair now. Another Rihanna photo is here.

Rihanna has sparked rumours she is engaged to R+B singer Chris Brown after she was photographed wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger.
The Bajan beauty has been romantically linked to the Kiss Kiss hitmaker for months, but both singers have continually denied they are a couple, despite being snapped in public kissing and cuddling.
The pair stepped up speculation about their relationship last week [03 Aug 08] when they were snapped frolicking in a hot tub together in Los Angeles.
And now Rihanna has fuelled rumours that they are to walk down the aisle after she was snapped sporting a ring on her left hand.

Rihanna and Chris Brown are still keeping fans guessing about the state of their relationship after coming up with different answers to the dating question at the BET Awards on Tuesday [24Jun08].
Just a day after Brown’s mother cooed about the Umbrella singer at a pre-awards gift lounge event, the sexy Barbados-born star was still insisting she’s single.
Speaking on the red carpet at the BET Awards, Rihanna said, “We aren’t dating; we’re very good friends.”
But when Brown was asked if he and Rihanna were an item backstage, he playfully said, “Possibly, possibly!”
And his mum hopes the two really are dating – she was overheard telling a friend, “she’s the sexiest and sweetest girl Chris has ever dated”.
The couple has become inseparable in recent weeks and rumours of a romance were sparked when the pair was spotted kissing and cuddling in a fast food restaurant last month [May08].

The above photo from People.com website has a story on Rihanna thoughts on love. For instance when questioned on what does love mean to [her], her replied was
“I am tired of being depressed and I’m exhausted sometimes, so I need a picker-upper.”
I can understand exhausted but DEPRESSED!! What do you have to be depressed about? Does this have anything to do with you being homesick? That I can understand. If not woman get a gripe on yourself. Using love um friendship can be a great antidote. However if it is more than friendship, sex is definetly not your antidote.
And what’s dis thing about a new tatoo. Are you planning on scaring yourself for life?. Read more of this post
