Move over Beyonce because Rihanna is the real saint of the music industry. Although her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown left her battered, bleeding and bruised beyond recognition, the Barbadian claimed during this extended preview of ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ that all she really wanted was for him to get help.
“I felt like the only person [the media] hates right now is him. It was a weird, confusing space to be in because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed,” Rihanna told Oprah while fighting tears. “I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help and who’s gonna help him? Nobody’s gonna say, “he needs help.” Everybody’s gonna say, “he’s a monster,” without looking at the source. I was more concerned about him.”
Rihanna’s appearance on ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ will air on August 19th at 9pm ET on OWN. For additional previews of her fist full of tears click here and then watch the latest glimpse of the show below:
