Rihanna got very emotional in a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey airing Sunday on Oprah’s Next Chapter, while discussing her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown .
Rihanna opened up extensively for the first time about the domestic violence incident involving Chris Brown in her new interview with Oprah in Barbados.
“It was embarrassing, it was humiliating,” she told Oprah Winfrey tearfully “I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched in a night, and I couldn’t control that.”
It became a circus and I felt protective. I felt like, the only person they hate right now is him. It was a weird, confusing space to be in. Cos as angry as I was, angry and hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help, and who’s going to help him?
Nobody’s going to say he needs help. Everybody’s going to say he’s a monster, without looking at the source.
I was more concerned about him.
Chris Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault in June 2009 and has been serving five years’ probation since then. He has been on his best behaviour (bar the club incident) and has gotten nothing but good marks while on probation; the two recently collaborated on two songs.
Rihanna definitely still has a soft spot for Chris Brown. Your thoughts?
