Rihanna Breaks Down Over Chris Brown in Oprah Interview

rihanna oprah interview

By: Amanda Anderson-Niles

Rihanna and Chris Brown share an unfortunate experience that will always keep the two linked together in the eyes of public opinion. After that night that forever left the former couple attached to controversy, both have had to continue on with their careers despite never being able to escape the situation, even though it happened a few years ago when they were teenagers. Although both Rihanna and Chris Brown have seemingly moved on to date other people and get in other relationships, most people just refuse to believe that neither Chris or Rihanna have gotten over one another. Rihanna doesn’t help this belief when she takes one of many shots at Chris Brown’s current girlfriend Karrueche on Twitter, or when Chris Brown continues to get into with rappers that Rihanna is rumored to have dated, like his recent beefs with rappers Drake and Meek Mill.

So it’s should come as no surprise that when Rihanna had her recent sit down and interview with Oprah Winfrey, that Chris Brown would be one of the many subjects the singer would be asked about. The Chris Brown questions were to be expected, but even Oprah says Rihanna reactions to the questions somewhat shocked her. Years later, it’s apparent that Rihanna is still hurt by the events that transpired that night.

So when Oprah asked her to relive the situation that happened with Chris, she broke down in tears.

Rihanna says:

“It was embarrassing, it was humiliating… I lost my best friend.”

She also admits that the situation caused her depression:

“I was resentful, I had a grudge, I was dark.

Interestingly enough, she also admitted that her own fame actually scares her at times:

“I am super duper terrified of the pedestal that comes with fame. It’s amazing how lonely you can feel.”

Check out the clips from the soon to be broadcasted interview:

    Oh come on! I wish she would stop talking about this in every interview she has! It happened like 4 years ago. It was messed up I know, but she has way more to talk about than this and I’m tired of hearing it. Especially when she tries to act all hard and gangsta on Twitter all day everyday.

    She still loves him and everyone knows that. I just wish both would have gotten some sort of counseling after the fact, It’s obvious they needed it now.

    Rihanna must have another album coming out soon. That’s the only time she allows anyone to ask her Chris Brown questions and answers them.

    I like Rihanna. I really do. But at some point, she has got to heal. Chris Brown is not the one for her. The night he hit her in her face repeatedly and left her on the side of the road, that should have let her know that this was not the best God has for her. It’s no shade to Chris Brown, but he doesn’t seem to exhibit any qualities that shows he’s a good man or the relationship type. Chalk it up as puppy love and move on to something grown and sexy Rih. lol

    She’s still on this sh-t? I thought she said she’s over it and everyone else needs to be too. Hypocrite much?

    I can’t and WON’T with some of these comments. There’s no difference between K. Michelle and Rihanna’s stories, yet only ONE can tell her story as much as she wants to? Hmm…and who’s the hypocrite again?

    It’s safe to assume at this point that Rihanna and Chris Brown will always be linked to one another.

    This story is so old and boring.

    I bet all of you women complaining that this story is so old are on Breezy’s dyck. Newsflash: If you’re not really light skinned or mixed, he wouldn’t give you the time of day. Idiots.

    I thought the way an interview worked is one person asks questions, and the other person answers them. So why the attitude? Rihanna answered a question about Chris? Don’t get mad at her. Hell, be mad that everyone including Oprah is still asking her these dumb a– questions like 5 years later.

    Oh goodness. You know Team Breezy is foaming at the mouth in panic because Rihanna’s talking abut “the situation” in her interviews again. LOL

    You must be Team Breezy. That’s the only reason you could be that stupid. Oprah said loud as day Chris Brown by name. Stop trolling.
    Back on topic, Rihanna will always play the victim card when she has a new album coming out. Who doesn’t know this by now?

    I get that shes upset but you cant come out with a song like “birthday cake” and expect people to still give a sh-t about that abuse story. If shes over it then be over it and she should stop using it for publicity because there are real victims out there and shes making a very serious issue into a joke.
