Rihanna Breaks Down To Oprah About Her Concern For Ex- Chris Brown
It was a brutal beating she received at the hands of Chris Brown but thru it all Rihanna admits in her upcoming interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter that she felt “protective” over ex Chris Brown, and was more concerned with his well-being than her own in the wake of the 2009 incident.
“It was embarrassing, it was humiliating,” the sobbing Umbrella singer told Oprah Winfrey about the fallout. “I lost my best friend — everything I knew switched — switched in a night, and I couldn’t control that … it’s not easy for me to interpret — it’s not easy to interpret on camera with the world watching.”
The singer, 24, said she felt “protective” over her violent ex after he was demonized in the media for the shellacking, adding that the timeframe “was a weird, confusing” period in her life.
“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.”
