Chris Brown’s Relationship With Rihanna: Why He Wanted Her Back After 2009 Assault
Chris totally proved how much he has grown in his new interview on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning show on Oct. 31. He eloquently opened up like never before about his Rihanna romance, and why they tried to make it work even after his assault.
“Yeah, we were cool. For me, a lot of it was trying again to pick up the pieces,” Chris explains. “I just wanted to make sure that it was still there, at the end of the day … I wanted to make amends to her, to show her that I could be the man that she wanted me to be.”
Wow! We can’t believe how emotionally mature he sounds. Given this new information, it really seems like Chris and Rihanna’s second attempt at love was a positive thing — it ultimately helped them find closure and move forward with their lives in a healthy way.
Of course, Chris and Rihanna weren’t always on such good terms, and he even admits in his new interview that he thinks she dated his former nemesis Drake, 28, just to make Chris mad!
When Hot 97 host Laura Stylez asked Chris if he thought Rihanna dated Drake to get back at him, he replied, “She’s gonna be mad if I say it, but in a way, I do.”
“Because she wanted to hurt you a little bit?” Laura asked.
”Yeah, a little bit. It’s understandable. It’s the game. We’re young. Relationships… we do that at that age.”
Of course, Chris has since found love with girlfriend Karrueche Tran, and he shared some sweet words about her too, saying, “At the end of the day, we have a real connection as best friends, on top of our intimacy.”
So what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did Chris and Rihanna do the right thing by getting back together after the assault? Let us know!
