Rihanna is very happy to hear Chris Brown talking about how sorry he is for the 2009 assault and being so raw with emotion. But a source tells HollywoodLife.com that she wishes she’d seen a glimpse of this when they tried to work things out in 2013.
Rihanna misses the Chris Brown she never had. The 26-year-old got very candid about how horrible he felt after physically assaulting Rihanna in his upcoming documentary Welcome To My Life and says that he went from being “on top of the world” to considering suicide. A source tells HollywoodLife.com that Rihanna has known about the doc and she fully supports it but it’s hard for her to see and we know why.
“Had Chris been the man he is now eight years ago, Ri would still be with him,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com. “It hasn’t always been easy for him to express his feelings publicly and she couldn’t be prouder for him with his documentary. But at the same time, Rihanna doesn’t want to rehash that dreadful day. It’s not something she thinks about and she doesn’t want Chris to either. She’s forgiven him and that’s all that matters. They’ve spoken. Rihanna knew what was up with his documentary and like she’s done most of her life, she supports it. Chris is working on himself and trying to be the best man and father he can. If he has to keep going into the dark places of his life to get to the other side of the tunnel to see the light than so be it. Ri just wants him to know that he doesn’t have to continue to seek the media’s approval. She’s already forgiven him and to her, the two of them will always be cool.”
Chris’ upcoming doc has no official date but in it he says: “I felt like a f***ing monster [after the assault],” Chris says. “I was thinking about suicide and everything else. I wasn’t sleeping, I wasn’t eating. I just was getting high. I went from being on top of the world, number one songs, being kind of like America’s sweetheart, to being public enemy number one.” Even Usher made a small cameo and said: “If you truly love Chris Brown then you felt everything that has gone on with him.”
