Last night, the photo of RiRi after she allegedly got beaten down by Chris Brown made the internet rounds and back. If you didn’t want to see it, you probably ran into it by accident, because it’s everywhere and it brings on epic doses of the sads. Even looking at this afterwards doesn’t help.
Anyway, the LAPD has launched an internal investigation to find who the hell sold (or leaked) the pic to TMZ. They issued a statement last night asking for the public’s help in finding how, what, who, why, etc… They said: “The photograph has the appearance of one taken during an official domestic violence investigation. The Los Angeles Police Department takes seriously its duty to maintain the confidentiality of victims of domestic violence. A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination.”
And today is RiRi’s 21st birthday. I think we all need a drink or fifty.
