Singer appears to have black eyes in leaked photo but 'remains strong'
Rihanna thanks fans for their support.
‘At the request of the authorities, Rihanna is not commenting about the incident involving Chris Brown,” the star’s spokesperson says.
‘She wants to assure her fans that she remains strong.’
The image appears to show Rihanna – who is currently believed to be hiding in Barbados – with 2 black eyes, a swollen lip and bruises on her forehead.
Chris released a statement on 15 February apologising for his actions.
Meanwhile, officers are now investigating how US website TMZ managed to get their hands on the photo.
‘The Los Angeles Police Department takes seriously its duty to maintain the confidentiality of victims of domestic violence,’ reads a statement.
‘A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination.’
