Last week, a graphic photo of a battered Rihanna leaked.

That image showed, for the first time, the gruesome extent of the damage caused by then-boyfriend Chris Brown the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

Now, a new photo has surfaced that reportedly shows a lip injury Chris suffered the night he beat Rihanna up. The damage is minor, but it's still there.

MediaTakeOut, which broke the story, says the pic was taken after the fight, during which he claimed Rihanna hit him first. Follow the jump to see:

In what can be deemed as an incident any celebrity gossip follower could have easily seen coming, Christina Aguilera was arrested early this morning for public intoxication.

According to TMZ, the singer was booked around 3 a.m. at the West Hollywood police station for the misdemeanor offense, while boyfriend Matt Rutler was also processed on charges of drunk driving. His bail was set at $30,000.

Matt Rutler and Christina Aguilera

It's been a troubling few months for Aguilera, as friends have been concerned over her downward spiral since her divorce from Jordan Bratman.

Aside from her memorably embarrassing national anthem mishap at the Super Bowl, Christina has most recently been accused of having sex with Rutler during a family gathering.

Cops reportedly pulled Rutler over this morning after they noticed him driving erratically. Sources say Aguilera acted "extremely intoxicated" and was "unable to take care of herself."

UPDATE: Says Sgt. Michael Thomas of West Hollywood Sheriff's Department: "Aguilera was taken into custody "for her own safety. It's kind of a welfare 'arrest.' Not a criminal arrest. She was intoxicated - too much to be in public. No one was available to take care of her, because the person she was with was arrested for drunk driving. When it's determined she's sober, she'll be released."

In his latest rant - this time to TMZ, from his own backyard - Charlie Sheen insinuated that long-time publicist Stan Rosenfield lied in October when he claimed that Sheen's Plaza Hotel breakdown was due to an allergic reaction.

As a result of this statement, Rosenfield issued the following statement this afternoon: "I’m unable to work effectively as his publicist and have respectfully resigned."

Sheen's response to this decision? "Pussy. He's not allowed to quit, so you’re fired."

Yes, it's just another few hours in the life of Charlie Sheen. Shortly after he went off to NBC and ABC regarding his status as a role model for his children, the star spoke with TMZ and said he was disappointed in how those interviews were portrayed.

"I had an expectation, and the result was not something I thought it would be. And that's on me. Whatever, life goes on."

On Friday, John Galliano was suspended as the chief designer by House of Dior, as a couple in Paris complained that this fashion guru assaulted them with racial and religions slurs.

Specifically, patrons at a bar called La Perle told authorities that Galliano hurled anti-Semitic insults in their direction, a charge the designer's lawyer "formally denies," adding: "legal action will be taken against those making such accusations."

This allegation may now be harder to deny, however.

In a newly-released cell phone video, posted by Great Britain's The Sun, Galliano slurs his words and tells a woman: "I love Hitler. People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f---ing gassed."

When asked where he's from, Galliano replies: "Your asshole."

Under French law, the stating of anti-Semitic remarks qualifies as "incitement to racial prejudice." It's a criminal offense that can carry a sentence of up to six months in prison.

Mel Gibson will likely face domestic violence charges stemming from an alleged attack on Oksana Grigorieva, while she will not be charged with extortion.

That's according to a TMZ report that is careful to note that this decision has not officially been reached. However, it looks like the D.A. is leaning this way.

Officials feel there's enough evidence to prosecute the actor, but not to prove beyond a doubt that Oksana tried to extort him using the Mel Gibson tapes.

An Oksana, Mel Picture

The turning point for the D.A., sources say, is that prior to being accused of violence, Mel admitted slapping Oksana in the couple's family law/custody case.

He says he did this without brute force, but to make her come to her senses, as she was shaking baby Lucia wildly and he feared Shaken Baby Syndrome.

The likely charge against Mel is misdemeanor domestic violence, not a felony. That carries a max of six months in jail which he almost surely wouldn't get.

The extortion investigation is less clear-cut. Sheriff's investigators believe there is evidence to prosecute Oksana Grigorieva, but the D.A. doesn't agree.

A decision is expected in the next two weeks, possibly this week.

Jason Davis, a.k.a. Gummi Bear, a.k.a. Brandon Davis' big brother, a.k.a. the dude on Celebrity Rehab, is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance.

The charge stems from his heroin arrest last month.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Davis got popped in Newport Beach on January 27 and was also charged with being under the influence and possessing drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors.

Jason Davis' battles with addiction are well documented.

According to legal documents, Davis was allegedly high on a "Central nervous system stimulant (prescription medication) and narcotic analgesic (painkillers)."

Davis faces up to three years in prison if convicted of all charges, but most likely he won't do any time and will be placed on probation. That's our guess.

After all, Dr. Drew probably has some powerful friends ...

Baby daddy Jonathan Rivera of Teen Mom 2 quasi-fame spent Valentine's Day behind bars for allegedly smoking marijuana, according to news reports.

Rivera, who stars alongside baby mam Kailyn Lowry and their son Isaac, was popped with brother Edward Rivera. Radar Online broke the story.

He has a long way to go to catch Jenelle Evans' rap sheet, but he got popped at 11:30 p.m. on February 13 on suspicion of being under the influence.

Jonathan Rivera and Kailyn Lowry

According to the report by the Lopatcong Township Police Department, Rivera was a passenger in his brother's Honda Civic when it was pulled over.

The reason? "because sparks were flying out from the undercarriage of the car."

That will do it. Police say that both brothers were "found to be under the influence of marijuana." Edward failed a field sobriety test at the scene.

The good news for Lindsay Lohan? The judge in her grand theft case is serving as the go-between in plea negotiations between Team LiLo and prosecutors.

The bad news? He thinks Lindsay should do time.

Lindsay will appear today before Judge Keith L. Schwartz and prosecutor Danette Meyers, who will offer her lawyer, Shawn Holley, a formal plea bargain.

Meyers already told Holley that doing time is not negotiable, while Lindsay is scared of jail and refuses to accept this. So where do they go from here?

Back to the Slammer

THIN ICE: Lindsay is skating on it, to say the least.

Judge Schwartz will propose that Lindsay accept some jail time for a probation violation (she's still on probation for her 2007 DUI arrest, after all).

In return, he'll offer the actress three years felony probation for the grand theft case, which is more than generous given that it's a felony case.

Of course, the caveat is that if she screws up during that probationary period, she'll be headed to STATE prison, not the county lockup. Yikes.
