Rihanna‘s still in love with Chris Brown … and she probably will never stop loving him!!
In a recent interview, the savagexfenty owner revealed to Oprah on her ‘Supersoul Conversations’ podcast nearly 12 years after the former couple got into a violent altercation that left Rihanna bloodied and bruised and earned Chris Brown a charge for assault. That she has rebuilt their friendship with Chris Brown and says she will probably “always” love him.
She said: “We’ve been working on our friendship again and now we’re very, very close friends,” Rihanna explained. “We’ve built a trust again, and that’s it, we love each other and we probably always will. That’s not anything that we’re going to try to change, that’s not something you can shut off if you’ve ever been in love.”
However, RiRi confirmed that she and Chris are not seeing each other romantically again. “He’s in a relationship of his own,” she said (Chris welcomed a son with Ammika Harris in 2019). “I’m single. But we have maintained a very close friendship ever since the restraining order’s been dropped. We’ve just worked on it little by little. It has not been easy.
The ‘Work’ Hitmaker also admitted that they do still see each other. They even hung out while in St. Tropez after hitting up a mutual friend’s party. She said her stomach turns when she sees him because she still has feelings for him.
“We went to a mutual friend’s party on a yacht,” she said. “It’s awkward because I still love him. My stomach drops, I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me. I have to maintain that and suppress it and interpret it and understand it and understand that it’s not going to go away. That is peaceful. If you don’t understand those feelings, you can make a lot of mistakes.”
Back in 2009, Rihanna obtained a restraining order against Chris after he physically abused her before the Grammy Awards. Riri and Chris had been dating for two years at the time of the singer’s assault. Eventually, Rihanna agreed to drop the restraining order in Feb. 2011, and she and Chris got back together in 2012. They dated for several months before breaking up in 2013.
