The Web has been buzzing over the shocking photo reportedly of Rihanna. Today is the "Umbrella" singer's 21st birthday, but she has not been seen in public since the alleged attack hours before the Grammy Awards. The Los Angeles Police Department has launched an internal investigation and filed a personnel complaint after a photo leaked late Thursday of what appears to be a bruised Rihanna following the alleged incident with Chris Brown on Grammy weekend. E3 Gossip has chosen not to post the picture, due to the nature of the case.

The unauthorized release of a domestic-violence photograph immediately generated an internal investigation,” an LAPD spokesman said in statement about the photo, which appeared on TMZ. “The Los Angeles Police Department Media Relations Section began receiving 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 Los Angeles Police Department takes seriously its duty to maintain the confidentiality of victims of domestic violence,” the LAPD asserted in the statement. “A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination.”

Rihanna's dad is disappointed with the way the Los Angeles police are handling his daughter's domestic violence case.
