Rihanna: Rihanna was left with “horrific” injuries by Chris Brown

The ‘Umbrella’ singer was left with facial injuries following an argument last week in which her boyfriend reportedly punched her in the face, causing swelling to her forehead and a split lip, as well as biting her on the arm.

Rihanna refused treatment at the scene of the accident – which Chris fled from – but police took pictures which have been described as “devastating proof of abuse”. A source said: “She looked like a martial arts fighter. Her injuries were bad.”

It is now believed it was not Rihanna who called police, but a passer-by who heard shouting coming from 19-year-old Chris’ car. The altercation happened after the pair were seen arguing at a pre-Grammy awards party in California on Saturday. A source said: “Inside the party they were very lovey-dovey, but later on they were arguing.
