Rihanna Covers Rolling Stone + Says Chris Brown ‘Doesn’t Have the Luxury’ of Beating Her Again
Masters of discretion, anger management and hypocrisy Rihanna and Chris Brown have finally and officially admitted they're dating again, despite that one time in '09 that he beat her so badly she was rendered almost unrecognizable.
But hey, it's cool. He's on probation now. Water under the bridge, amirite ladies?
"I decided it was more important for me to be happy," she told RS (quotes via MTV News). "I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that."
That includes legal and psychological experts, therapists and professional judges. Because what do they know.
"Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash," she ranted. "I can handle it."
"When you add up the pieces from the outside, it's not the cutest puzzle in the world," the Bajan beauty admitted. "You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know," she said. (She forgot that we see them on Instagram. Every 40 seconds.)
"But it's different now. We don't have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about s---. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that."
That's right, RiRi. You just roll with the punches. Literally, it seems.
Or maybe not. When asked about his assault history, she was pretty adamant that it won't be repeated. "He doesn't have the luxury of f---ing up again," she said firmly. "That's just not an option. I can't say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that. And I wouldn't have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility."
A smart assessment. Breezy clearly has his anger-management issues firmly under control and all, so we'll just let bygones be bygones. Until next time, of course.
