UPDATE! LAPD Investigating Rihanna Photo Leak! + Rihanna's 21st Birthday Is Today!

The LAPD claim they do not know how the pic reportedly of Rihanna's bruised and battered face was released to the public. (Blank Stare)...Like they don't know someone within the LAPD obviously SOLD the photo I'm sure for 6 or 7 figures...and since TMZ is the organization that is credited with the exclusive "first" pic release...perhaps the LAPD will start there!

It is just distubing. Rihanna should not have to now deal with the fact that her privacy has forever been invaded in this issue....especially with today being her birthday.....

Following an entertainment website’s publishing last night of a closeup photograph of what appears to be Rihanna’s badly beaten face, the Los Angeles Police Department has launched an internal investigation into the source of the leak.

“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,” the LAPD said via a statement released on Thursday.”The Department launched an immediate internal investigation and subsequently filed a personnel complaint. A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination.”

The LAPD has not officially identified Rihanna as the alleged victim in the Chris Brown domestic violence case, but it said in its statement that last night it received “numerous inquiries about the release of a photograph associated with a domestic violence incident that occurred on February 8, 2009, involving entertainer Chris Brown.”

The police statement encourages anyone with information about the source of the photo to call or visit the department’s website.

HAPPY 21ST BIRHTDAY TO RIHANNA (2.20.09)....It's sad to think that she has to celebrate her 21st birthday with all this ish that has transpired. It should have been a happy time for her. Below is a video clip of Rihanna celebrating her B-day last year with then boyfriend Chris Brown.
