The Rihanna and Chris Brown saga continues. While Rihanna made a glamorous return to the red carpet this week, nude images of a woman bearing a likeness to the Barbadian beauty have surfaced on PerezHilton.com. The celebrity gossip blogger claims “Chris Brown must be responsible for this!”
A spokesperson for Brown has released a statement to ESSENCE.com denouncing any connection to the photos. “This is both a false and defamatory statement. Chris has not released or ‘leaked’ any photos of Rihanna (or anyone else for that matter).”
Brown was expected to appear in court on April 29, but was not required to attend  the hearing. According to TMZ.com, Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos filed two motions requesting for internal police records on the leaked photo of Rihanna’s bruised and battered face. Brown’s next court hearing is May 28.

Reps for Rihanna could not be reached for comment.—CM
