In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Rihanna confessed on Sunday that she is still in love with Chris Brown, the man that beat the holy hell out of her right before the 2009 Grammy Awards. I can only surmise that Rihanna is fully delusional and needs serious therapy. That girl needs to tape a photo of herself after Chris Brown beat the sh*t out of her to her mirror and stare at it every morning before she contemplates getting anywhere near him again.
I am fully aware that victims of domestic abuse often cannot help but go back to those that have beaten them, even when they might end up getting killed by the person they ‘love’. Something in them believes they are not worth more than being beaten and abused, often because of prior abuse in their lives. They think they deserve to be treated like a punching bag. Often they think it is a form of ‘love’ for a person to hit them, because they ‘need’ to be disciplined for being bad or doing wrong.
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?'”
R&B star Chris Brown has revealed he underwent counseling for anger management in the wake of his vicious beating of former girlfriend Rihanna.
Speaking to People, Brown said he sought counseling after his attack on Rihanna to help deal with his anger management issues. “I want to understand my feelings,” Brown said. “I just need to talk to someone. I wanted to understand the problem at hand.”
How does Brown plan to deal with his anger in the future? Apparently he might just do a waltz or two. “If I do [get man], I will work with my counselor and hopefully channel my anger into something like dancing.”
Meanwhile, the feud between Chris Brown and Oprah Winfrey continues to heat up. Oprah aired a show on domestic violence dedicated to “all the Rihannas of the world” after Brown’s assault on his then girlfriend. During the episode, she stared directly in the camera and said: “If a man hits you once, he will hit you again. He will hit you again.”
Brown was angered by what he considered a “slap in the face” from Oprah. “I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school.” Brown claims Oprah insulted him by only showing support for Rihanna after the incident. “She could’ve been more helpful, like, ‘OK, I’m going to help both of these people out.'”
A rep for Oprah responded to Chris Brown’s statements, saying, “Oprah is very appreciative that Chris Brown performed at her school, but she takes domestic abuse very seriously. She hopes he gets the counseling he needs.”
Well, at least it seems like Brown is taking Oprah’s advice and getting some proper head shrinking – because he obviously needs it.
Girlfriend-beatin’ Chris Brown wasted no time finding a replacement since his troubled relationship with pop chanteuse Rihanna ended last month. He’s gotten back together with another ex-girlfriend. Hope she has a good right hook!
Brownâ€™s new/old lady is University of Mary Washington student Erica Jackson. â€œ Chris and Erica met in Virginia, where heâ€™s from,â€ a source close to the singer tells the NY Daily News. â€œThey dated back in the day and reconnected a few weeks ago when Chris was in town. Theyâ€™ve been spending a lot of time together, but things only really heated up over the last two weeks.â€
Chris’s peeps think the new girl is going to be good for him in the long run. â€œErica has a good head on her shoulders; sheâ€™s solid,â€ says the insider. Being solid is a must if you’re gonna ride around with Chris. Less bruising. The blabber goes on to say â€œSheâ€™s more of a plain Jane â€” cute though. She’s helping to ease Chrisâ€™ pain over Rihanna. He was mad in love with that girl.â€
According to pals, the â€œmadâ€ one in this love trifecta will be Rihanna herself. â€œShe is going to be pissed!â€ says a pal of the pop starlet. â€œRi is going to be so hurt that Chris has moved on so quickly and is parading this new girl around town.â€
What a dumbass! Princess Ri-Ri reportedly has done a 180, and is now assisting prosecutors in her assault case against Brown. She had been reluctant to participate, but all that’s changed now! Nice work, Chris. Hopefully you’ll get what’s coming to ya.
Rihanna is said to be cooperating with police in the case against boyfriend Chris Brown’s alleged assault on her before the Grammys. The story is not pretty.
A source close to the investigation told E! News that Rihanna has alleged to police that Chris choked her, threatened to kill her and she lost consciousness as a result of the attack.
They were together at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party late Saturday, and began fight. As to why they started fighting…there are reports that Chris received a text and that Paris Hilton was all over Chris outside of the party, and also rumors that Rihanna gave Chris the herpes…hmm. After midnight, things blew up. Brown pulled his rented Lamborghini to the side of a street in L.A.’s Hancock Park. Reportedly, Rihanna grabbed the car keys, threw them out the window…and Chris snapped.
After an unsuccessful search for the keys, he came back to the car, put his hands around her neck and said, “I’m going to kill you!” Rihanna told police that she lost consciousness, and when she came to, Chris was gone.
Officers were so concerned about her, they drove her to the hospital in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance. They took picture of her injuries at the scene and after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The pics are likely among the evidence presented to the D.A.
Chris was released from LAPD custody after posting $50,000 bail. His celebu-lawyer, Mark Geragos and Chris’s publicist have not responded to requests for comment on the situation. These are very serious charges that Chris is facing. It’s too bad, but he may have killed his career.
We’re learning LAPD took pictures of Rihanna’s injuries and they are “horrific.”
TMZ reports that the photos show major contusions on both sides of the singer’s face, there is serious swelling and bruising. Her lip is split and her nose bloody. There is confirmation there are bite marks on one of her arms and on several fingers.
Rihanna claims Chris Brown struck her with his fists and that’s what did the damage. There was reportedly no object used in the alleged attack, contrary to earlier reports. Apparently Chris Brown’s fists are the “deadly weapon” in the felony charge.
Rihanna refused treatment at the scene, cops took photos before she left. TMZ says the photos alone are “devastating proof of abuse.” An additional detail is that it was not Rihanna who called 911. Someone else nearby heard her screams and called in the emergency.
Chris is the last person fans expected to behave like such a thug, although there are rumors that Rihanna gave him herpes, and this is what set him off.
