Rihanna recently sat down with Oprah for a very intimate interview where she explained what happened the night she and Chris Brown got into a fight. Rihanna tearfully admitted:
“I lost my best friend… everything I knew switched — switched in a night. And I couldn’t control that. It’s not easy to interpret on camera, not with the world watching.
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.”
