Last we checked, Rihanna and Chris Brown are not currently together. They were doing the on-off thing for a while and then there was that issue with his ex Karrueche Tran, you know like, is she still in the picture or what?
But as of two weeks ago, it seemed like RiRi and Chris only had eyes for each other, but then we assumed they broke up again because they had stopped Instagramming pictures together.
That being said, Rihanna just got SUPER honest in a Rolling Stone article over why she took Chris Brown back, even if it was only for a little while.
Rihanna describes her time being single as “being angry and dark,” and said she wanted Chris back because, “I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake."
Basically, RiRi only stayed away from Chris because she thought it was the “right thing to do,” because you know, he punched her.
But you always wait for your 1 tru luv, or whatever, and they got back together despite the turmoil and public’s judging eyes.
“I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it," she adds.
RiRi professes that Chris is a changed man now (this interview conducted BEFORE Chris had a brawl with Frank Ocean).
“He doesn't have the luxury of f***ing up again," she says. "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."
But here’s where she gets all loved up over Chris, “When you add up the pieces from the outside, it's not the cutest puzzle in the world," Rihanna says. "You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. 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."
We’re just shaking our heads real slow and trying to take this all in. I guess we’ll just wait and see if Chris pops up in RiRi’s Instagram photos anytime soon to confirm that they got back together AGAIN.
Related note: Chris deleted his Instagram. I know, how will we ever know if he’s feeling like Jesus again?
