My poor baby Rihanna teared up when she sat down to talk to Oprah Winfrey about the night that changed her life.. The night Chris Brown beat her like she wasn’t one of the most beautiful, famous women in the world.
In her upcoming interview with Mama O, which airs this Sunday, Ri-Ri was forced to hash up old memories.
With tears of emotional baggage running down her face, Ri told Oprah that although she was very upset and distraught about what happened she was more concerned about Chris Brown. She wanted to protect him. He needed help and everyone saw him as a monster.
A sobbing Ri explained:
“I lost my best friend… everything I knew switched — switched in a night. And I couldn’t control that. I had to deal with that. It’s not easy for me to understand and it’s not easy to interpret on camera, not with the world watching. So it’s hard for me to even pay attention to my mind and figuring thing out because now 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.
Because as angry as I was — as 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. And I was more concerned about him.”
Watch the interview below:
According to Hollywood Life, Chris has already seen the video:
Chris saw the video clip. Of course he saw it, how do you think he feels? He feels horrible he did that. Watching [Rihanna's interview with Oprah] made him realize he made a big mistake and he’s been paying for it ever since. He’s working hard, in the studio, dancing, doing everything he can to rebuild his name and career and I think he has been successful in doing all that. Y’all should be talking about his road to recovery and how he’s been a man and made s–t right. He and Ri are cool, more cool than anyone will know. She forgave the [boy] the minute that s–t went down, so what that say about their relationship?”
Hummn. A lot of people will talk about domestic abuse but unless they’ve really been in position to be in love the a man that’s abusing you they really can’t understand. I can totally identify with Rihanna wanting to protect C.B. at the time and not want him to be vilanted. But it’s three years later now. I think the thing that makes Rihanna differently from every day women is that Ri’s life is so good that she really hasn’t sat down to think about the tremendous pain that Chris caused her. To this day she’s obviously still hurting. She can’t move on. She can’t date Chris again without a backlash. Rihanna doesn’t even date because she was beat up by the love of her life. That emotionally destroyed her.
I’m not upset with Ri because she’s still in love and has forgiven Chris. But, Ri defintely needs to get some counseling to understand that Chris really doesn’t give a phuck about her. If he did he never would have beat her face black and blue. She can’t grasp the fact that she could love someone who is Mr. Nice one minute and Mr. Evil the next. Do you not understand how messed up in the head you have to be to beat someone in Rihanna’s position?? She has not let go of that pain.
