Rihanna “I still love Chris Brown”, and confirms the couple “reconnected” in St. Tropez earlier this year.
Three years ago, Chris Brown attacked his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. Now, Rihanna is opening up about the attack, claiming she still “truly loves him”.
The singer sat down with Oprah at her home in Barbados for an emotional interview, which aired on Oprah’s Next Chapter on Sunday. Rihanna spoke at length about her relationship with Brown.
“I’m single, but we have maintained a very close friendship since the restraining order has been dropped,” the 24-year-old told Oprah. “It’s not easy.”
The Grammy award winner also confirmed what many had suspected – that the former couple reconnected in St. Tropez earlier this year.
“We went to a mutual friend’s party on a yacht. It’s awkward because I still love him,” she said. Adding that when she’s around Brown she has to “maintain this poker face.”
During the sit-down Rihanna said she is still concerned about Brown’s welfare.
“I truly love him,” she continued. “And the main thing for me is that he is at peace. I’m not at peace if he is unhappy or he is still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds peace.”
I feel bad for her. How horrible to feel so connected with him, even after he beat her face in. I can’t imagine what it’s like going through this kind of situation, but I kind of feel like I might understand still being in love with the guy.
