Oprah’s OWN Network has just released an emotional clip of O’s sit down interview with Rihanna. In the preview, the teary-eyed pop star talks openly about her ex Chris Brown, and the traumatic fallout following that violent February 2009 night.
It’s been three years since Brown attacked the Barbadian singer following an argument, leaving her face bloodied and bruised. Physical injuries aside, Rihanna says the emotional damage in the months after the ordeal was just as difficult to cope with.
“I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched in a night. And I couldn’t control that,” she tells Oprah.
“It became a circus and I felt protective. And I only felt like the person they hate right now is him. It was a weird confusing space to be in,” Rihanna explains.
“He made that mistake because he needed help. And like who’s going to help him? Nobody’s going to say he needs help. Everybody is going to say that he was a monster .. and I was more concerned about him,” she continued.
