Rihanna On Chris Brown: “He Needed Help”

  • In an interview airing this Sunday on OWN, Rihanna opens up to Oprah about her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown’s assault on her in 2009 and how difficult it was for her to process. “I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched in a night and I couldn’t control that,” Rihanna says in the preview above. She continues that one of the hardest things about the aftermath of the assault and their breakup was watching Brown get demonized in the media. “I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help,” she says. “Who’s going to help him? Nobody is going to say ‘He needs help.’ Everybody is going to say ‘He’s a monster’ without looking at the source. I was more concerned about him.” [TMZ]
