Excuse me, I feel like I’m back to three years ago and this is not January 30th 2013. If Rihanna is going to keep discussing this openly in the media. Then, perhaps she should be talking about this to Brown when they are intimate, or in the bed lying together taking one many instagram. Rihanna is one messed up individual and it’s not just Chris Brown. Whatever has happened to her; she has allowed it. And if she wants to have a partner that appreciates her one day, she needs to clean up her act (get drug treatment) and begin therapy to confront her life issues. I don’t necessarily think being with Chris Brown (another tortured soul) is going to put Rihanna’s life back on track, especially when he is as destructive as he is. Perhaps, that is why, she wants him so bad. Misery loves company! I think separation, from Chris Brown would be a great idea.
I don’t want to see her end up like Amy Winehouse!

@kiki How am I supposed to know who he sold his condo to? Am I the realtor? I just know it is sold. Are you really trying to say that he should not stop by a place that is/was rightfully his?

I think she would’ve stayed with him if it ( the beating) hadn’t become public.I think it later turned into what she wanted him to feel like losing her.

Wanda maybe if Rihanna acted like a mature adult and handled the booty call in a mature way and kept her hands to her damn self, this all would not have taken place. But since she is a violent woman and openly admits it, how can people like you even say the things that you said? Why does everyone ignore her abusive and violent ways?

I never said she wasn’t violent. I believe they beat on each other, and that one after the Grammy party she got the worst of it. Had that been kept under wraps, I have no doubt they would’ve stayed together. The fight was publicized so something had to be done. She didn’t press charges on him. The fact other people close to them knew what was going on decided enough was enough. Chris couldn’t deny he beat her and didn’t want to drag her into trouble by claiming she beat on him too. I’m sure had they not been the famous people they are. She would have stood by him. She had people in her ear saying she needs to take a step back and let herself and Chris get some help. Plus he was forced to stay away from her. She was always gonna get back with him, there was no doubt about that.

Wanda, you admit that she was violent but others are not aware of that behavior and past of hers. The restraining order was put on both. She could not contact him and he couldn’t contact her. Bottom line! I feel as though that if both took full responsibilities for what took place and Rihanna admitting she was drinking that night maybe the outcome of this whole thing would have been different. The fact that she lied and he lied to protect her has made it into what it is today for both of them. More on him because he is a man. He did say on angie martinez show during that time that it would never happen on his part and subliminally admitted to being abused by her. When he did the Larry King thing he denied smashing the car windows and her slapping him, but admitted the window thing in famous girl and subliminally admitted to the abuse.

She did have people in her ear telling her what to do and for that she took on the role of a victim. Sat on National TV and lied throughout all of it. Denied everything she stated in her police statement. Even if she had those people in her ear she could have easily said the truth or not even do the interview. Did she really have to speak about him in every single interview? Did she really have to put a look a like in her videos? Did she really have to put him on the remix? She wanted him back in her life. Even if he was content with her not being in his life. I must say before he rekindled his relationship with her he was a lot happier. I am not trying to say Kae made him happy bc I would be lying, but his aurora was better before Rihanna. She brings a lot of this drama back into his life. Which she shouldn’t be doing but she apparently sees it as a way for her to get attention.

If she did the Rolling Stones magazine and not spoke about Chris or Katy and John Mayer, then nobody would have cared about that interview. If she did not show up to the lakers game with him or traveled with him when he was overseas, do you really think her album would have went to #1? Do you think if she stopped talking about him in her interviews her career will be where it is? Her career wasn’t really going far until that incident, in my opinion. Yes she won a grammy and had platinum albums, her grammy winnings were courtesy of Jay-z. Her first album stunk and didn’t get anywhere, she had to use Jay-z’s name to get her out there. Chris wrote Disturbia for her which was the only reason it was successful. Every song that she makes was successful at the hands of The Dream, Ne-Yo and Jay-z.

Can you honestly see Rihanna being as big as she is in the coming years?

That’s how those type of relationships go though. Chris took the heat off of her, because he knew they were always gonna be together again.

Exactly Wanda he took the heat off of her and protected her. While he took all the heat, bullying, slander, threats, and crashing career to protect her. That showed how much he was in love with her. Who is not to say that maybe she inflicted the injuries and he tried to stop her and she just kept screaming and when he heard the sirens he ran, maybe he did slap her and that was it and he took all of it. That whole incident rubs me the wrong way.

That’s what i’m saying. I have a grown nephew who was in a relationship where they hit on each other.When hitting wasn’t enough the woman started to pull knives on him if they got into an argument. Then he started knocking her out when she would run at him with the knife. He would block and punch her right in the face.I told him to get out of that relationship before someone died. Some people like that kind of thing because afterward they say the sex is amazing. It’s like they’re on drugs. I hope C/R make it. But I don’t see it happening.

@sarah I don’t think the weak one here is Chris Brown. In fact its just the opposite! RIRI can give interviews until the cows come home for all I care. I simply pointed out the truth..that she makes all the comments about him, and he doesn’t make public statements about her! ALso, i believe that people are beginning to get alittle more insight into what their relationship was like 4 years ago. It was made to be very one sided with him being the aggressor. Of course RIRI has enjoyed way more success than Chris because after he wooped her as* his career took a huge nose dive ( and rightfully so), but I don’t hate him. Im very happy to see him work hard to rebuild him image, as he was the bigger star! Rolling Stone is merely one example of her constantly talking about Chris Brown. Its like she is somehow trying to convice everyone to see him the way she does! But I don’t think even RIRi has a clear picture of how Chris Brown TRULY feels about her today (4 years later)!

@Temp Simms
You have a clear picture of how CB feels for RIH Though? Stop posting on HL with your molly induced rants. I want you to get me the interview where CB claimed KT ASAP. Until then SHUT THE F*** UP You #BASIC B****.. You guys claim that CB was such a good guy with KT but keep reiterating the fact that he “beat” RIH. Only CB and KT knew what transpired between them behind close doors, girls like KT (DEPENDENT WOMAN) will take whatever s*** a man dish out because they have no other choice. Leave CB and RIH alone your internet rant will not change the way they feel about each other. It takes a VERY STRONG woman to accept, learn and forgive all the while being scrutinized by HATERS like you.

Temp Simms…maybe she is talking because people are asking her. I don’t remember when Rolling Stone wanted to interview CB. Rihanna has enjoyed way more success than him, and frankly, people will listen to her because they don’t “hate” her like they do CB. Do you really think that CB is that weak of a man that he would let someone say that he was in a relationship with them if it wasn’t the truth? C’mon…

Just sayin'

Posted at 4:37 PM on February 4, 2013  

DIDN’T FEEL THE CONSEQUENCES???!!! Cancelled product endorsement, movie contracts, and concert cancellations; fans booing and boycotting him/his music world-wide; industry people avoiding him, not inviting him to or attending his parties; bad publicity; public ridicule and scorn; his mother/family/friends looking at him funny and insisting that he get help; and his personal feelings…I beat on a woman like a man beat on my mom! No consequences??? Women, especially in and around show business wouldn’t date him…and he was ostracized (for at least a year. The loyalty to k has to do with her being there while others shunned him.Look at pictures in 2009,him sitting in front row seats at Lakers’ games, alone. He got boo-ed.

Business almost tanked and the recording company balked at producing some of his song and concert ideas. He spent his own money on production, engineers, et al. He spoke of it in interviews. Rihanna is well known and liked …their princess…little Ms. Sunshine…and he was her prince…when he hit her, his clean image was destroyed, forever.

He’s had a huge internal/external struggle to deal with and had to reach out to his fans to please continue to support him…thereby “team breezy” formed and strengthened his journey back. He poured money and time into his foundtion and working with the domestic abuse center that he’s partnered with and funds projects. He gave out plenty of free music to his fans. They kept him afloat. He felt the consequences of the loss of Rihanna’s/her family’s love and her friendship immediately. Male celebrities hit on Rihanna and boasted about it – it made news (some lying about how far they got…like Drake had to admit that she didn’t return his affections after hinting of more on cd) and cb reached out every chance he got…birthdays, awards, family deaths, etc. Gossip was all over LA and NY about them getting together secretly. As soon as the restraining order was downgraxed, all who knew them, knew they were coming back together. He thought she hated him. She thought she hated him for a long time. He hated himself. The defiance was backlash to the pain inflicted by people trashing him constantly. He hid himself in work and sports. Look at his musical output. k apparently made no noise about the other women…groupies. They got along. Listen to his song choices and titles. Look at his actions shortly after the Oprah interview. How long did it take for them to get together…from August to October, when he went to the press to say that he was single and dumping k? Do you think Rihanna had to FORCE him to pay attention? Really? They took a year to come completely back together and apparently, he has decided or been told that it is best that he speak less and act more. He blows it when he responds to nosy papz. He must not have a pro p.r. person on hand..

I don’t know about that ! I would’ve been scared to go back to my abusive boyfriend. He barely almost kill her that night. Women barely get away from there abusive boyfriend or husband. I don’t like rihanna has an artist, but if she wants to give chris a chance, I wish her the bestest luck on that one. Doesn’t mean he changed now, doesn’t mean he can go back to the old person that he was in the past. But time will tell tho.

I think that she is human. Everybody go through something. When you love somebody you don’t jus leave them. There’s two sides to every story. Everybody looking at what he did, but what did she do to him. She know what really happened and that’s y she’s still with him. Looking in from the outside will get you nowhere until you are put in a the position she was in or experience what they both went through you Neva know nor feel what they feel for each other!!!

Hollywood Life I must commend you on the title of this post, at least you said hit most blogs would have tried to sensationalize the post by using the word beat good job. RIH did the correct thing by leaving him after the incident my only problem is that I hope he hasn’t slipped too far into a depression that no one can help him. Just because he is partying and was changing girlfriends on a regular does not mean he is not depressed just look at the pics he has been painting they speak volumes. I pray that she can help him before it is too late and he also has to be receptive of the help, GOD help those who help themselves.

smart @demmi. i don’t wanna be negative but you can twist it the other PR way. unlucky – making her look bad still being with a violent guy. maybe the interview was still a lil working on his image. we know they work together. tryna make him look better, like the changed man again. call it bad timing. it obviously fails for him cause he was just a tad of the hook after the interview and shoot was done. didn’t he show up with a fractured hand. he obviously hit somebody. that makes it look kinda irrelevant. ;)
