From Rolling Stone:

Rihanna’s wounds were described as “horrific” soon after the February 8th incident, which forced both the Barbadian star and boyfriend Chris Brown to cancel their Grammy appearances.

While the camera’s flash bleaches out the precise severity of the injuries, the photo depicts contusions and swelling on Rihanna’s lips and cheeks, protrusions on both sides of her forehead (”It looked like she was growing devil horns,” a source told TMZ early in the investigation) and what could be a black eye. A source close to the situation confirmed that the photo is of Rihanna, and the Roman numeral tattoo on her neck matches one that has appeared in recent photographs of the singer. The photos surfaced the night before Rihanna’s 21st birthday.

Singer Chris Brown is being investigated for a variety of felonies; the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office is reportedly considering charges of domestic violence, assault resulting in great bodily injury and, according to E!, attempted murder.

Last weekend, Brown released a carefully worded statement expressing regret over the altercation. “Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired.” The 19-year-old star added, “I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person.” Rihanna’s camp has still not issued an official statement.
