Rihanna: I Do Not Have Herpes!

by at . Comments

Rihanna is not pleased with celebrity gossip sites insinuating that a nasty disease was the reason ex-boyfriend Chris Brown smashed her face to a pulp last year.

In an interview with GQ, she addressed rumors that Brown lashed out at her after spotting a cold sore on her lip - a common sign of the STD known as herpes.

Now dating Matt Kemp, Rihanna wants the record set straight, noting that the alleged cold sore is actually just a facial scar she has had for most of her life.

"It's not true," she said of the herpes rumor, and her tone was far from light-hearted. "It's just a f**king scar. On my lip. That's there every day of my life."

Well that settles that. Not that you can even see it ...
