The Los Angeles Police Department is still investigating how a leaked photograph of a bruised Rihanna landed in the hands of entertainment web site TMZ, according to E! Online.
Last week, TMZ executive producer Harvey Levin told police they obtained the image legally. However, the LAPD has yet to formally identify the singer as the alleged victim. The department said the photo appeared to have been taken during “an official domestic violence investigation.”
The incident took place on Grammy day, February 8. Although Chris Brown has not been charged in the case of alleged domestic violence, he turned himself in after the alleged incident took place. Brown was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats.
The leaked photo has upset Rihanna’s fans across the world, as well as the singer’s father.
