Chris Brown responds to new images of Rihanna's battered face, calling it 'ironic' because they are posted just before he's releasing his new album.
Two pictures of Rihanna with bloody face post her altercation with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown have just emerged. Her battered face actually has been revealed in a 2009 photo leaked shortly after the domestic violence was covered by media, but these new images are more disturbing than the previous one.
The images reportedly were taken at a hospital where RiRi was treated after her fight with Breezy. One picture shows short-haired Rihanna with bruises on her forehead, eyes and cheeks. Her right eye and cheek are badly swollen. The other picture gives a closer look at her injured lips.
The pictures come out hot on the heels of the official ruling made by the court to reduce RiRi's restraining order against Breezy. The "Kiss Kiss" singer, through his lawyer, complained the restraining order restricted his career and asked it to be lifted. RiRi skipped the hearing earlier this week, but her lawyer said she has no objection with the request.
Chris Brown is upset and irritated with the picture leak. On Twitter, he wrote, "It's ironic how 'somebody' put this out right around my album time! Wow! I guess that's supposed to be strategic chess move. Unbelievable." He additionally posted, "The Devil is always busy!! But when u have a destiny, nothing or no one can stop what God has planned!" The R&B singer has since removed the posts.
