The pair broke up in 2009 when Chris Brown launched a violent attack on the Barbadian singer in a car en route to the Grammy Awards. Rihanna discusses the break up in a new interview with US talk show host Winfrey amid rumours the pair are back together.
"It was embarrassing. It was humiliating. I lost my best friend," Rihanna tells the TV legend. "I was resentful. I held a grudge. I was dark."
She also discusses how lonely her fame makes her, speaking of her fear of fame. "I am super-duper terrified of the pedestal that comes with fame," she said. "It's amazing how lonely you can feel."
Rihanna and Chris Brown appeared together on a remix of Rihanna's track 'Birthday Cake' at the start of 2012, and we recently thought to be meeting in secret while both were in St Tropez in July this year.
"CB (Chris Brown) is in France to shoot a music video for Swizz Beatz album (sic) and Ludacris is in it. It's Swizz's song. Karrueche is there with him... They never broke up," the rep told HollyScoop.com
Adding: "He is not on her (Rihanna's) yacht. There is no Rihanna connection."
