Rihanna bruised picture is a fake

A picture doing the rounds allegedly showing Rihanna bruised has been exposed as a fake.

The picture is based on an earlier shot, with some half decent photoshopping.

As far as we know, Rihanna is still in hiding, and hasn’t been seen since checking herself out of hospital following her beating by Chris Brown.

If any legit photos do emerge, stay tuned, we’ll have them up. In the mean time you can keep up with all the latest Rihanna Chris Brown news here.
