Rihanna, 32, was spotted outside of a restaurant in Los Angeles with noticeable swelling on her face as well as a black eye.
After American magazine, TMZ shared the images of Rihanna, who appeared to be keeping a low profile while inside her car picking up a take-out order, fans were quick to speculate that the singer was involved in some kind of physical altercation. Luckily, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
“Rihanna is completely fine now but flipped over on an electric scooter last week and bruised her forehead and face,” a representative for the singer told People.
The rep added: “Luckily there were no major injuries and she is healing quickly.”
RiRi was pictured when she rolled up to Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica Friday night, where she was trying to lay low in her Escalade while some staffers brought out food and drinks to her curbside. At one point, she removed her sunglasses … and paps captured her looking the worse for wear — a black eye and some swelling in her face.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that the public has seen Rihanna with a bruised and battered face. She was the victim of a domestic violence incident in 2009 involving her then-boyfriend Chris Brown.
The duo had an argument the night before the Grammy Awards that year that escalated into him assaulting her.
She was left with visible contusions and bruises on her face from the abuse. Brown was sentenced to five years of probation and 180 days of community labor after pleading guilty to felony assault and making criminal threats.
