Reese Witherspoon On Chris Brown & Rihanna's Relationship: It's 'Absolutely Not Acceptable'

Rihanna and Chris Brown Back Together

At the 2nd World Conference of Women’s Shelters in Washington, D.C., Reese Witherspoon spoke out about Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna and how she tells her kids about the situation

Reese Witherspoon is one of the first celebrities to openly discuss Chris Brown and Rihanna rekindling their romance, after he abused the now 24-year-old pop star three years ago.

At the 2nd World Conference of Women’s Shelters in Washington, D.C. Feb. 28, Reese — the Global Ambassador for the Avon Foundation — explained how important it has been to educate her two children — Ava, 12, and Deacon, 8 — about the pop stars to whom they love to listen, reports People.

“My daughter knows what happened. My son knows as well,” Reese, 35, said about the Chris and Rihanna situation. “We talk about what is abuse. I think it’s important to talk to our daughters – and our sons – in order to educate them at an early age about what’s appropriate and what is absolutely not acceptable.”

She added, “Although the concept is somewhat foreign to them, they’re starting to understand that this happens to families in our country and all throughout the world.”

What do you think about Rihanna and Chris getting back together, despite everything that has happened? Do YOU think it’s a good idea, or are you appalled by it like Reese?

I know chris disrepected her when he beated her back in 09 but he regrets doing it and apologized. She also has forgiven him and they love each other so i dont see why she cant give him another chance. Ppl leave them alone. Let them live their lives.

I think it’s great but is it really love that brought them back together?!?!? Think about it, in there two songs together in 2012 all they talk about is wanna to do each other. In my opinion they just couldn’t find someone else that are as sexually compatable as they were. If you think about it they are some real freaks…. hehe

IS IT LOVE OR SEX?????????

At this point I think she deserves to get her a** beat down by him again for taking him back. She obviously didn’t learn the first time. What a weak a**, insecure woman taking back that loser. He’s not even a man. A real man doesn’t beat on women. They deserve each other. Idiots.

I don’t see why everyone is so pissed because even I knew that it was going to happen sooner or later. It’s their life and their business so leave them alone and get your lives together. As radioguy2121 put it, celebrities are not role models. In any situation the parents are suppose to be the role models in their kids lives so stop leaving that job up to the celebrities ans blaming them when things go wrong with your kids. And furthermore would anyone be complaining if it were the other way around and she had beat him. We weren’t there so we should stop judging them.

she said that what happened in their relationship was unacceptable not the relationship itself and if they decide that they want to get back together thats their business

she’s completely right.. it’s a disgrace, she’s a role model for so many young women and now she’s showing them that it’s ok to go back to a man who abused you. this is wrong on so many levels

At this point I just feel as if it’s a slap in the face!!! All the love and support we gave Rihanna after that brutal attack!!! Reading the police report just leaves me scratching my head as to why Rihanna would lower herself back into the sewers with this young women batterer. I realized that each one of us has to learn the hard way but I only pray he does not kill her one day. I’ll no-longer buy any material from Rihanna, as for Chris I stopped buying his material 3 years ago! If you need to listen to it that bad just download it for free – I’m boycotting these idiots PERMANENTLY!

Who would want to touch her after she’s been with Chris Brown. Worse, if she had a kid with Chris Brown. Can you imagine what life would be like raising his kid, and having to see him everytime he comes and picks the kid up for a visit. If Rihanna goes out with him, might as well forget about any other men asking her out. Well, everyone except Justin Bieber.

Some women get off on abuse and Rihanna must be one of them for I can’t think of any other reason a woman would go back to a man after getting the crap beaten out of her. It’s telling him…okay, you can do it again.

Rihanna is a grown woman and if she wants to get back with Chris Brown there is nothing anyone can tell her…..so I’m going to keep my mouth shut after this and the next time we read about him punching her or hitting her upside her heard I won’t feel an ounce of sympathy.

Some women have to learn the hard way and it seems like she is one of them. Chris can’t control his anger so his anger controls him.

That quote seems completely out of context. She was talking about abusive relationships in general and how she deals with teaching her children about such a touchy subject. She at no point said rihanna dating her abuser was completely unacceptable just that she makes sure to teach her children about behaviors that are unacceptable.

it’s not in reese’s place to talk about this publicly. is she even close friends with rihanna? it’s rihanna’s life, and you can’t control who you love. people need to back off. it’s been 3 years

Sweriously GG would you go back to a man who beat the crap out of you??? If I was Reese I would be using them as an example of what not to do as well. It is EVERYBODY’s business when a man is beating up a woman. And Reese is right about letting her children follow and listen to a woman beater and a woman who is not strong enough or “too stupid” to stay with a man who beats her. Rihanna is really dumb for going back to him and she is teaching woman that it is ok to stay with a man who beats you….. Not good. If I had children they would not be able to listen to either of them!

There are men – and women – who, through intense counseling and psychiatric help, do change their lives. Look at Mickey Rourke. He beat his 2nd wife and flushed his career down the toilet. But he hit rock bottom and look at him now. At 58 his career and his life are completely turned around. Chris Brown hasn’t had nearly that much life experience but it’s not the lack of longevity that is sitting wrong with me. I’m just not sure Chris is one of those guys that can turn it around. Only he and Rihanna know, and it looks like the rest of us are going to find out.

i believe that if they get back together, that it would never happen again, its just a fact if she cn forgive chris, if you really love someone you will learn that they make mistakes.

um. reese didn’t even say that, if you read the article- so not sure what you mean when you say she was right. READ THE ARTICLE, not just the fake title that HL puts on it to get people to click and make money for them.
