February 10, 2009

Rihanna is reportedly cooperating with police investigators reguarding the incident on Sunday morning that resulted in Chris Brown's arrest for making criminal threats. More details have emerged about the alleged assault, including reports from TMZ which that stated an unnamed law enforcement source described Rihanna's injuries as "horrific."Photos of the wounds reportedly show major contusions on both sides of the singer's face, with serious swelling and bruising, including a split lip and a bloody nose. She also had bite marks on one of her arms and several fingers. Bite marks?

According to TMZ:

Law enforcement sources have now gotten specific with us... police took pictures of Rihanna's injuries and they are "horrific."

As we reported, the photos show major contusions on both sides of the singer's face -- there is serious swelling and bruising. Her lip is split and her nose bloody. We have now confirmed there are bite marks on one of her arms and on several fingers.

And we now know this... Rihanna claims Brown struck her with his fists and that's what did the damage. There was no object used in the alleged attack.

Rihanna refused treatment at the scene, but before she left cops took photos. We're told the photos alone are "devastating proof of abuse."

This s**t is getting a little nutty...
