Pictured: Rihanna Bruised And Battered

Battered, bitten and bruised, this photo of RIHANNA was taken just hours after she was allegedly attacked by former boyfriend CHRIS BROWN.

The petit singer's head has two bruises, her eyes appear puffy and her lips are cut following an alleged bust up with Brown last week.

Police have not confirmed the name of the woman in the leaked picture or when or where it was taken.

But celebrity website TMZ.com have obtained the picture exclusively and the woman in the picture has the same tattoo of Roman numerals on her shoulder which Rihanna revealed at a party before the Grammy awards on February 8 - the night she was attacked.

Brown allegedly fled from the scene following the fight but handed himself in to police the following day, when he was arrested and released on £30,000 bail.

In a statement released through his publicist last week he said: 'Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired.

'I am seeking the counselling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God's help, to emerging a better person.'

Both Brown and the Barbadian beauty were nominated for Grammys and were due to appear at the music awards show in LA but cancelled at the last minute.

Rihanna was photographed leaving LA at th weekend and is believed to be staying with relatives in Barbados.
