Rihanna Breaks the Silence

miércoles, 25 de febrero de 2009 |

Rihanna, who has been dominating headlines for a couple of weeks now, finally opened up about the incident that brought her in the spotlight, explaining that she was “strong” and “doing well."
The singer, who spent the anniversary of her 21st birthday in private on Friday, would not talk about Chris Brown, her 19-year-old boyfriend who allegedly played a violent role in the attack that took place on February 8.

“At the request of the authorities, Rihanna is not commenting about the incident involving Chris Brown,” the two-sentence statement read. “She wants to assure her fans that she remains strong, is doing well and deeply appreciates the outpouring of support she has received during this difficult time.”
Rihanna’s comments came shortly after her dad criticized Los Angeles police over the leak of a picture showing the young star’s bruised and battered face.

Ronald Fenty told People magazine that officials had done “sloppy work,” adding that his daughter did not intend to celebrate her birthday by throwing a party.

The photo that showed a woman said to be Rihanna with her eyes closed, a fat lip and visible bruising to her forehead was first published by celebrity gossip Web site TMZ.com. Immediately after the leak, the Los Angeles Police Department launched an internal investigation in order to establish whether the picture could be included in the case’s police evidence.

The Los Angeles Police Department is currently investigating an alleged confrontation between Rihanna and fellow singer Chris Brown, who authorities said that wounded the star during an argument the couple had last week in a Hancock Park neighborhood hours before the Grammy Awards ceremony was due to take place. Chris Brown was taken into police custody on February 8 on suspicion of making criminal threats but was not immediately charged with the felony because the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office explained that police had to find more evidence in the case. Thus, the star was released after posting a $50,000 bail.
