Rihanna may have split up with Chris Brown in 2009 after he assaulted her, but the “We Found Love” hitmaker says that she still has feelings for him.
The couple recently met up on a mutual friend’s yacht in St Tropez, France and she admitted, “It’s awkward because I still love him. My stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me.” And in a recent interview with Oprah, she told the talk show host, “We’ve maintained a very close friendship ever since the restraining order was dropped … We’re very, very close friends.”
The brunette beauty goes on to say that she was only able to move on from Chris when she “forgave” him for assaulting her and realised she didn’t hate him. “It looked like hate because it was ugly, it was angry, it was inflamed, it was tainted and I realised that what it was. I had to forgive him because I cared about him still. And the minute I let go of that, I started living again.” Good advice for any breakup. Thanks Riri!
