On Sunday, Oprah will be running an exclusive interview done at Rihanna’s home in Barbados on her new show Oprah’s Next Chapter.
In a clip from the show, Rihanna cries as she talks about her very public break-up with Brown: “I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched, and I couldn’t control that…it’s not easy to interpret on camera, not with the world watching. It became a circus…it was a weird, confusing space to be in because as angry as I was and as hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help, and who’s going to help him? Everyone is going to say that he’s a monster without looking at the source. I was more concerned about him.”
The interview took place on August 6, which was two weeks after Brown and Rihanna were reportedly seen kissing on a yacht in Saint-Tropez. Brown was also spotted showing off his abs with on again, off again girlfriend Karreuche Tran, and admittedly no one but Rihanna and Chris really knows what the hell is going on.
Brown's rep has repeatedly denied to Hollyscoop that his client and Rihanna are an item again.
Unless Rihanna is a very good actress, she wasn’t fake crying for Oprah.
Oprah described Rihanna as down-to-earth in a video she released last week: "It wasn't like a big superstar, megastar, pop star had arrived in the neighborhood.
It was just run in, as though she had gone to the grocery store and came back." Gone to the grocery store, had a major personal crisis, and came back is more like it.
