In the July issue of Elle magazine, we find Rihanna opening up about loves lost and found, which of course includes her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown.
The 22-year-old singer reveals that the 2009 Grammy night attack at the hands of Brown left her confused and wondering if she should stand by her man.
“He was my best friend,” she said of Brown, 21, who received a six-month community labor sentence. “All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives — not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him — it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”
Thankfully, the Barbadian beauty seems to have found Mr. Right in L.A. Dodger Matt Kemp. “I’m so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it’s so easy,” she told the magazine. “I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace. It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family.”
