A longtime pal of Rihanna speaks out on the singer, and says that women all over the world were affected by the pop star’s decision to speak out on domestic violence.  

Shontelle Layne, a fellow Barbados native and singer tells Chris Yandek of CYInterview.com, “I’m so, so proud to see her stepping forward and opening and exposing herself in this way because that really is what she’s doing.”

She continues, “It could be thousands. It could be millions. It could be a couple hundred. It could be one, but somebody’s going to be affected,” by the songstress speaking publicly about the night ex-boyfriend Chris Brown attacked her.

“People are going to make judgments, but she’s a very smart girl. She’s very intelligent and she’s a young woman,” Shontelle reveals.  “She’s growing. She’s learning.”
