Rihanna Suffers Face Injuries After Scooter Accident

Photos of Rihanna were taken outside of restaurant Giorgio Baldi, in Santa Monica on Friday. She had a black eye and some swelling, apparently the result of the scooter snafu. Rihanna stayed inside her SUV while staff brought her order to the car — it is a well-established fact that Rihanna will take her wine to go, — but paparazzi managed to get pictures of her face nonetheless.

“Rihanna is completely fine now but flipped over on an electric scooter last week and bruised her forehead and face,” a spokesperson told People. “Luckily there were no major injuries and he is healing quickly.”

Scooter injuries are not uncommon. According to Forbes, U.S. hospitals admitted nearly 3,300 people suffering scooter-related injuries between 2014 and 2018, a 365 percent increase from the pre-scooter times. That same window reportedly saw more than 39,000 scooter injuries total, many of which did not require hospitalization. Be careful out there!
