Rihanna was unreservedly straightforward as she finally talked about her past troubled relationship with fellow R ‘N’ B Chris Brown. Read on.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the 27-year-old Barbadian-born singer didn’t omit anything unpleasant or embarrassing in their on-and-off romance. It will forever be branded with the February 2009 hostile climax of Brown beating her to a pulp inside a rented sports car. After images of her disfigured and blood stained face made it into media circulation, Rihanna became the unsolicited epitome of a loving and maltreated partner.
“Well, I just never understood that, like how the victim gets punished over and over. It’s in the past, and I don’t want to say, ‘Get over it,’ because it’s a very serious thing that is still relevant; it’s still real,” Rihanna said.
Rihanna explained as she has doubts on why the media has deemed it necessary for her to live through the whole experience again.
This tactic though maybe an outcome of the two reuniting briefly in 2012 in the midst of Brown’s five-year probation following her assault on the singer. Despite having a future that seems to hold a negative connotation, Rihanna strongly believes back then that she was the “one of those people built to handle things like this.”
The “Unapologetic” hit maker even went to the length of stating that Brown was his last official boyfriend and declared that she wanted the best for him, but the latter was sidetracked when past events of their relationship came up.
“I was very protective of him. I felt that people didn’t understand him. Even after… But you know, you realise after a while that in that situation you’re the enemy,” Rihanna said. She gave a finality adding that despite her noblest intentions she and Brown are not friends but they are not also enemies.
One of the world’s best-selling artists may have slowly freed herself from the past, but would-be model Karrueche Tran laid out a different card on the table as cited by Mirror. Tran who began dating Brown in 2011 jumped ship last March after knowing that he fathered a child which greatly devastated the “F.A.M.E.” artist.
