Chris Brown has seen the preview video of Rihanna’s upcoming interview with Oprah, Aug. 19, and he ‘feels horrible’ because he and Rihanna are currently ‘more cool than anyone will know,’ a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively! Here’s why.
During the interview, Rihanna confesses and cries to Oprah: “I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched, switched in a night. And I couldn’t control that. It’s not easy to interpret on camera, not with the world watching.”
Rihanna says that she was very “hurt,” but that she didn’t like how the world turned on Chris.
“Because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help,” she said. “And who’s going to help him? Nobody’s going to say he needs help, everybody’s going to say he’s a monster, without looking at the source. And I was more concerned about him.”
A source close to Chris tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Chris saw the video clip. Of course he saw it, how do you think he feels? He feels horrible he did that.”
The source continues, “Watching [Rihanna's interview with Oprah] made him realize he made a big mistake and he’s been paying for it ever since. He’s working hard, in the studio, dancing, doing everything he can to rebuild his name and career and I think he been successful in doing all that. Y’all should be talking about his road to recovery and how he’s been a man and made s–t right. He and Ri are cool, more cool than anyone will know. She forgave the [boy] the minute that s–t went down, so what that say about their relationship?”
