LAPD officers took pictures of injuries to the 20-year-old singer's face and arms following an alleged fight with boyfriend Chris Brown Saturday night.

Brown has been charged with making felony criminal threats.

Officials who've seen the photos of Rihanna's injuries say her face was swollen, her lip split and her nose bloodied. There were also bite marks on her arms and fingers.

Rihanna says Brown hit her with his fists, according to police.

Rihanna spent Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. According to E! News, a decoy was used as Rihanna made her way out the back exit of the hospital to avoid being photographed.

In the wake of the incident, Rihanna has postponed an upcoming concert scheduled for Friday in Kuala Lumpur. Concert promoters say the event will be rescheduled.
