In the second part of her interview with Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America, Rihanna said she still loves and cares for Chris Brown, despite the abuse she received at his hands.
“I don’t hate him at all,” Rihanna said of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. “I actually love and care about him and I’m concerned about him doing well. I want him to do well â€” have a great career, have a great life, and grow up. Just take this as something that you had to go through to grow up and learn.”
Rihanna said her relationship with Chris Brown verged on “obsession” and the “more in love we became, the more dangerous we became for each other – equally as dangerous.”
Speaking about the night she was attacked and beaten by Brown, Rihanna said an argument started when she saw a text message on his phone from another woman. Rihanna said she confronted Brown about the message.
“I caught him in a lie and he wouldn’t tell the truth,” she recalls. “I wouldn’t drop it. I couldn’t take that he kept lying to me and he couldn’t take that I wouldn’t drop it, because obviously his back was up against the wall. The truth is right here in the text message. So it escalated into him being violent towards me and it was ugly.”
“All I kept thinking the whole time is ‘When is it going to stop?” Rihanna said. ‘”When is it going to stop?'”
