Rihanna Says Relationship With Chris Brown Is ‘Unbreakable’ in Leaked ELLE UK Quotes
‘Unbreakable.’ That’s how Rihanna describes her relationship with Chris Brown in leaked quotes from her ELLE UK covers. She appears in her River Island duds on not one but two covers, and she looks hot. But what’s juicier is what she said in the feature.
Rihanna knows people don’t like their reunion, since, you know, they split because he beat the crap out of her 2009. She understands that it might make her a bad role model for women suffering from domestic abuse, but she’s following her heart.
“I did not notice how many women were going through the same thing I was,” she stated about the backlash. “I didn’t notice how many women were in a limbo of love, a dilemma. And with every aspect, there was a different crowd of women who identified with different things.”
Essentially, she said that she experienced a myriad of emotions about the incident, with people relating to her on all different levels. But she can’t please everyone, so she pleased herself. It’s a very evolved way of thinking.
“We got a fresh start and I’m thankful for that,” the singer said. “And right now that’s what we want, a great friendship that’s unbreakable. Now that we’re adults we can do this right.”
The singer won’t go as far as to reveal why she chose to take Breezy back, since he is known for his temper. (Remember when he ripped his shirt off, Hulk Hogan-style, during his ‘GMA’ interview?) But it was not a decision she arrived at lightly.
In her 2011 Rolling Stone cover, where she wore the shortest shorts ever, she did say that they never needed to speak to one another ever again. So it did take her some time to heal and to open her heart to him again.
“I have my own reasons, very very private reasons,” the sexy singer said. “Very personal. A lot of things. Bottom line is – I know him. I had a lot to think about and I had a lot of time to think about it. I was trying to do this for myself.”
Also, she is adamant that taking back has nothing to do with accepting what he did to her. In fact, it’s the opposite. “No, I didn’t ‘accept’ anything! I’m not accepting anything that’s wrong,” she said. “What’s wrong is wrong, no matter who it’s coming from and that’s just that.”
It sounds like Rihanna is evolved enough to be able to forgive. It’s easy to hold a grudge against someone who wronged you, rightfully so. It’s harder to forgive and move on, but that’s what Rihanna has done. She should get some credit for being a strong enough person to forgive and to follow her heart when people are so disapproving of her doing so.
When she said that her new single ‘Stay’ is about “having love that close and wanting it to last forever,” she admitted that is exactly how she feels about Brown. “You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it,” Ri said. “I would definitely say that he is the one I have that kind of relationship with.” We bet that makes her post-Breezy ex, L.A. Dodger Matt Kemp, feel great about himself.
And about that “having a kid” cover line? She says she will “probably” procreate and that who the father is will be up to God. “It’s not my business. It’s God’s business,” she said.
