First Photos of Rihanna After Altercation

We've heard a lot of different stories and a lot of rumors in regards to the altercation between Rihanna and Chris Brown, but it was all speculation until now.

TMZ has obtained the first photo of Rihanna after the attack--and it's not pretty.

It seems like the reports that she suffered two "huge contusions," which swelled up on both sides of her forehead were true.

Judging by the picture, the rumors of her getting "a bloody lip and nose" were also accurate.

This is just so sad and shocking. We wish Rihanna a speedy recovery and all the strength in the world to get through this tough time.

UPDATE: The LAPD just released this statement in regards to the unauthorized release of the photograph. Looks like someone's getting fired tomorrow morning!
