Rihanna Opens Up to Oprah About Chris Brown: ‘I Lost My Best Friend’

Rihanna

Nothing was off limits when Oprah sat down with Rihanna in her native Barbados for an interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” During one of her more vulnerable moments, tears streamed down the pop superstar’s face when she was asked about her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

“It was embarrassing. It was humiliating. I lost my best friend. I was resentful. I held a grudge. I was dark,” she said while recalling the events that led to their breakup.

Oprah also asked her if Chris was her true love and where their relationship stands today, but you’ll have to tune in for the answers.

Plus, RiRi gave Oprah a tour of her childhood home and presented her mother with a surprise that she’s been wanting to give her since she was a little girl.

“I’m gonna look so soft,” said RiRi about their revealing conversation, which will air August 19 at 9 p.m. on OWN.

    @MinajRules2012, Trust me she hasn’t had any more sex than the average male. So unless you’re gonna comment on Drake catching emotions for every vagina be falls in, Meek Nill sexing all these video models and strippers or Wayne and his harem. Sit your ass down and STFU. If multiple sex partners bother you there’s damn near no artists your saintly virginal ass listens too.

    @Dro, Women should hold themselves to a HIGHER standard. The males in the game are known hoes, Rihanna has a image to protect and that’s why “NIVEA” dropped her, because she’s a hoe. Keep it up and she’s gonna lose the few endorsements she has left, which isn’t very many.

    @catia, Nivea dropped her because shes supposed to be a role model and instead shes smoking pot on twitter, having sex all over the place and to top it all off destroying what was known as a family brand, they dont want to be associated with her hot ass mess.

    @MinajRules2012, you are 100% right on point every1 should stop hating the truth & stop defending Rihanna… she probably slept around to P*ss breezy off so i guess she has an excuse to be angry.

    people need to realize shes just like u & me, a human being & not perfect.. every1 seems to see celebrities like they are gods

And the skank rihanna deliberately did that video so that the world will never forget how she provoked chris into battering her, all these lesbians skanks like rihanna stick together to hate on men. skank rihanna hates men. skank rihanna hates her father who probably had sex with her. skank rihanna had simulated sex at the festivel in front of her miniser

    @MinajRules2012, with the way the skank rihanna has done everything in her power to destroy the competition – Ciara, one has to wonder who really killed Whitney Houston??? Would she be a star if Whitney had lived. The skank rihanna has tried to murder Ciara with her tongue over and over, and telling her evil followers to do the same to Chris and Ciara. This video is designed to play over and over, so that no one ever lets Chris move on. She is going insane with Chris getting all those awards from BET.

  15. Roxanne Rainville

    It is obvious Rihanna doesn’t have much of a life. Why is it that the only thing she can talk about is Chris? She stalks him on Twitter and Instagram. She is upset that there is no one in her life right now that will truly want to be with her. Chris didn’t want to be with her either and that is why he cheated on her. i sense that she is being dishonest and the only way Chris or anyone else can respect her is if she forgets about him for good and move on to someone else. Weakness never impresses a guy. Grow up and find someone else to cry about.

    Roxanne Rainville Reply:

    @lov789, Thanx for attacking me y’all but girl you are not smart at all. If a man never respected you in a relationship, how is that real love? The feeling she may have for him is not love. She is just obsessed. A lot of women do mistake infatuation or obsession with love. Real love takes commitment. They didn’t have that.Real love is about honor and respect. They didn’t have that.You need to ask yourself. If it didn’t work out once, how can it work out again. If it was her worst relationship, then why would she want to go back to it? You ask yourself that. She is just jealous that he has kept a very long term relationship that seems content, but all hers failed and she had little happiness or connection to these men she dated, so she wants to find a way to make Chris feel guilty for enjoying his life.

    I applaud Rihanna for her display of vulnerability! After building a shell of strength and little room for weakness since the incident, to have to go back deep within yourself to where it hurts the most & which is very much prevalent today & found the strength to do what she does without chaos, makes Robyn stronger than she’s ever been! Looks like this interview was very therapeutic rather than a get to know at least for Rihanna. Happy she got it all off her chest & who better to do it with Oprah!

And what’s really sad is the fact they have move on. All the hater act like Chris (19) and Rihanna (21) had a fight with them. He had a fight with he’s girlfriend that went to far hell they where at P.
