Rihanna’s Dad Reacts, Calls LAPD Photo Leak ‘Sloppy’

Rihanna’s father, Ronald Fenty, is upset with the Los Angeles Police Department after receiving word that a photo of his daughter, shortly after her alleged altercation with Chris Brown, had been leaked and spread on the internet. “Sloppy work on their part,” Fenty told PEOPLE Friday. The photo, which TMZ.com claims is an authentic photo of a “battered woman” surfaced late Thursday night reigniting outrage over the couple’s alleged altercation and subsequent dialogue that followed last week. Shortly after the leak, an LAPD spokesman issued the following statement: “The unauthorized release of a domestic-violence photograph immediately generated an internal investigation.” “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.” At press time, the LAPD said “a violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination.”
