It has been over three years since that nasty dispute between Rihanna and Chris Brown, which saw her bloodied and bruised face plastered all over the internet.
And, still. it brings Rihanna to tears.
In an emotional interview with Oprah, the songstress says that she felt ”protective” of the R&B singer.
“It was a weird, confusing space to be in,” Rihanna told Winfrey. “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.
“I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched … switched in a night and I couldn’t control that,” the Barbados native told Winfrey.
We would like to know how you feel about Rihanna crying when she talks of her ex….their ongoing relationship doesn’t sit well with us….
The full interview airs on ”Oprah’s Next Chapter,” Sunday at 9 p.m. on OWN.
