Remember that morning when you work up in February 2009 and the whole world was going mental because Chris Brown had punched Rihanna in the face? Well the good old media have decided to drag it all up again. Brilliant.
We all know the storyâ€¦ the couple were heading home from the Grammy’s, Chris gets a text from a girl, Rihanna gets jealous, they have a fight in the car and she ends up in hospital. No doubt, you’ve seen the hospital picture of a badly bruised Rihanna too? Well in my opinion, Chris has paid the price for the incident, Rihana has gotten over it and moved on, and now, almost two years later, the story is back again now that four new snaps of Rihanna are alleged to have surfaced.
According to reports, the pictures are being offered up to the highest bidder and Radaronline.com claim to have been offered the snaps – which are supposedly much more gruesome than the one that was leaked originally – but they have declined to buy or publish them.
Radaronline.com say; “The photos were taken in a Los Angeles emergency room where Rihanna was being treated after she was assaulted. (She is) pictured with large welts above each of her eyebrows, marks on both of her cheeks and a split lip. The most graphic photo is a close-up, her left eye bloodied and bruised, with four lesions on her face and multiple cuts on her bottom lip.
“A ruler is being held up which shows the reddish swelling to span two inches – from the bottom of her eye almost all the way down to her mouth. In another image, Rihanna is shown pulling her busted lips apart to show numerous lacerations on the inside of her mouth. There appears to be at least five major cuts on the inside of her lips.”
Awful isn’t it? That these horrific pictures are being soldâ€¦ these people are making money off Rihanna’s pain and Chris Brown’s mistake. We’re not condoning what he’s done, but we think he’s paid for what he’s done, there’s no point bringing up the past. But before you ask, if these pictures do really exist, we won’t be publishing them either.
