5 time Grammy Award winner Rihanna is making headlines again.
In promotional clips for an upcoming interview by Oprah Winfrey for her new show, Oprah’s Next Chapter, Oprah travels to Barbados for an emotional, no-holds-barred conversation with pop star Rihanna about her career, her family and the price of fame. Plus, Rihanna reveals how she really feels about that infamous incident with Chris Brown, and her relationship with him now. The show airs Sunday, August 19, at 9/8c, on the OWN Network.
Rihanna is seen crying after Oprah asks her about her relationship with Chris Brown, who brutally assaulted her in 2009.
“It was embarrassing,” Rihanna said. “It was humiliating. I lost my best friend. I was resentful. I held a grudge. I was dark.”
Celebrity insider gossip reveals that the two had begun dating again, reinforced by her decision to release his-and-her remixes they collaborated on. Rihanna appeared on the remix to his “Turn Up the Music,” and Brown provided a sex-laced verse on the “Birthday Cake” remix.
The TV legend said she had expected Rihanna to be an edgy “badass,” but found that the 24-year-old singer defied all her expectations.
For those of you that have forgotten, or have been hiding in a cave, on February 8, 2009, police responded to a 911 call alleging domestic violence between singers Chris Brown and Rihanna on a Hollywood, CA street. Chris Brown fled the scene initially, only to turn himself in later that day. He was arrested on the suspicion of making criminal threats and was released on bail. Rihanna and Brown both cancelled their planned appearances at the Grammy Awards.
“This is not an easy sentence,” Gibbons said. He must check in with a probation officer every three months.
