Rihanna on Chris Brown: 'I Lost My Best Friend'

Rihanna on Chris Brown: 'I Lost My Best Friend'

Rihanna flashes a smile as she arrives at Narita International Airport on Wednesday (August 15) in Tokyo, Japan.

The 24-year-old singer is in town to perform at the Summer Sonic Tokyo festival this upcoming weekend!

Rihanna was recently interviewed by Oprah Winfrey for her OWN show Oprah’s Next Chapter, where she opened up about Chris Brown.

“It was a weird, confusing space to be in,” Rihanna told Oprah. “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”

Rihanna‘s full interview airs on Sunday night on the OWN network.

Stockholm Syndrome many abused women suffer from it.

Rihanna needs to be shown the exit door really quick by Hollywood. One of the worst if not worst celebrity females right now. You may not want to be a role model but you are by default. It’s a terrible message she’s sending to impressionable young people. Get rid of her. Time for a boycott!!

Wish she’d shut up about it now. No one is feeling sorry for you anymore Rihanna

not shocked by her words..thoughts.. she was ignorant then & she’s ignorant now. Hasn’t even grown from her experience. Sad Really.

Chris Brown is just some punk that got lucky and made money. He could afford to get help but instead he has tantrums. He beat the crap out of a woman, threw a chair at a window at NBC because he didn’t like a question and yells at people that try to tell him anything he doesn’t want to hear.
I don’t feel sorry for him and I hope Rihanna realizes one day how immature and selfish he is.. and probably always will be.

that is seriously messed up- I understand that even though he abused her she was in love with him and felt a loss of his companionship and couldn’t be with him if she wanted to. But to feel more concerned aobut the abuser show that she is ok with being abused- so sad- wonder if she was raised abused so that is her normal? sure chris needs help but he made the choice to beat her- she should not defend him, twisted. I appreciate her honesty but the core issue is that she is protecting and defending her abuser and that means she has serious issues and connects love with physical abuse- not her fault- maybe what she was taught, but not healthy.

lol. what mistake he made? that was no mistake. he cheated. when confronted to be revealed he snapped. what he need help for there? and he deserved what he got. she got beaten and still tryna make him look good. riciculous weak and addicted persona and manipulated. the lord may praise some of her good nature, but the regular way she’s dumber than a bag of rice.

Doesn't Oprah have a kid @ 08/16/2012 at 12:47 pm

Wish that Rihanna asked Oprah about her rape when she was 14 years
Old. And that it was a uncle that did it?.The pain that she went through!
Make Oprah open up about it.. compare how you trusted someone that
Would do such a thing! Inside of rehashing old news about Chris!

Who are we to jugde someone else? The thing between Chris and Rihanna, is, was and we’ll be between Chris and Rihanna.
We don’t know her, we don’t know her heart, so don’t judge. Peace.

GRAVEYARD LOVE!!!!

I think Rhianna herself has MAJOR issues, maybe why she identifies with a wack-job and her former abuser like Chris.

For real, Chris Brown WAS A KID. Rihanna WAS A KID. Like I know 22 and 21 are technically considered adult, but think of all the idiots you know that are those ages – they’re like college student aged. Throw millions of dollars at them and some really crazy immature stuff is going to happen. She loved him, he loved her, he was really a sick guy, who definitely needed help. I think it’s great that she can recognize what no one else in this cruel world can – not everything is black and white. It’s never okay for a man to hit a woman, but Chris Brown is human and he made a mistake, and he will be paying for that mistake forever. Bruises fade, cuts heal, love is forever, and thanks to an immature mistake that he made, their love was ruined.

She was raped by her Dad, introduced to prostitution and drugs by her Dad, and her Mom sat by and let it happen. Of course she thinks Chris is her best friend.
Chris had child abuse too of similar nature which is why he doesn’t know what he did wrong. Everyone in his family is the same way. His Mom got regularly beaten up by his stepfather. The persistent rumor that the stepfather liked Chris just a bit too much sexually just adds to Chris’ rage and homophobia issues.
These two are going to have a homicidal ending.

Bad Feeling @ 08/16/2012 at 2:26 pm

I have a very bad feeling that she’s laying down the PR groundwork to change/manipulate public opinion into “forgiving” him so they can get back together (publicly).

There have been a lot of rumors about them back together. Am starting to believe them…

@bad feeling they don’t even need that pr construct. i think lots of people see that already coming.

@Justina: so? he’s taken. i’m tired of these damn rihanna/chris brown fans failing to see the fact that HE HAS ANOTHER GIRLFRIEND. I think it’s hilarious there’s a double standard – when people hear stuff about chris brown/rihanna they get excited but when kristen stewart is caught cheating with her married director she’s a tramp. cheating is bad no matter who or what the circumstances and no one should condone them getting together, especially seeing the horrific results their relationship led to.

crocodile tears. she just wants sympathy for both of them. put on your clothes and work for your money then i’ll feel bad for you.

Why are we still talking about an incident that happend THREE years ago? It just seems dumb to reopen wounds…

@Kali: the hell are talking about???? What rapes? You are sick.
