More information about the Rihanna interview with Diane Sawyer has come out today. The full video can be seen on 20/20 tonight. But here are some of the awful things Rihanna recounts to Sawyer.
On what was going through her mind during the attack: "When is it going to stop? When is it going to stop? He had no soul in his eyes. Just blank. He was clearly blacked-out. There was no person when I looked at him."
Rihanna confirms the fight began after Chris Brown received a text from another woman after they left a pre-Grammy party. She says, "I caught him in a lie, and he wouldn't tell the truth. And I wouldn't drop it.”
"I couldn't take that he kept lying to me, and he couldn't take that I wouldn't drop it … It escalated into him being violent towards me. And it was ugly. I was battered, I was bleeding, I was swollen in my face.”
On her reaction to Chris hitting her: "My next option was to get out of the car and walk, start walking in a gown and a bloody face," she says. "I didn't have a plan. That whole night was not part of my plan."
Rihanna says she finally had to make a decision for herself, and not because of Chris. She says, "The more in love we became, the more dangerous we became for each other, equally dangerous. Because it was a bit of an obsession."
On whether she hates Chris: "No, I don't hate him at all," she says. "I actually love and care about him. I want him to do well, have a great career, have a great life and grow up. And just take this as something you had to go through to grow up and learn."
Make sure to tune in to see the interview in its entirety tonight at 20/20 at 10PM.
