Rihanna appeared on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” to speak with the talk show titan about her feelings on her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. She spoke about how she still has love for the R&B singer, even though he assaulted her before the Grammy Awards in 2009.
Fans were speculating as to whether or not Rihanna has gotten back together with Chris since the incident. They haven’t, but apparently they are on good terms with one another. She revealed during the interview, “It was a weird, confusing space to be in, because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed as I was, I felt that he made that mistake because he needed help. Everybody’s going to say he’s a monster, without looking at the source and I was more concerned about him.”
Fans of the Barbadian singer took to Twitter to discuss the eye-opening interview. One user said, “I absolutely loved Oprah’s interview with @Rihanna. Such an insight and so real! Own LoveMeSomeOprah.” Another fan said, “Rihanna’s Oprah interview was really an eye opener. Just watched the whole thing on necolebitchie’s site.”
Apparently her honesty in being so forthcoming with information about her relationship/friendship with Chris has really rallied fans behind her decision to stay in close contact with Chris.
