Chris brown is dating rihanna
So Rihanna was in for it from both sides—those who were outraged on her behalf and simultaneously disturbed by her choices.
But if you look more closely at Rihanna's choices, particularly the ones she's made since fully cutting ties with her first love, they appear to be the choices of a young woman who's determined to not let just any man hold sway over her ever again.
And most of them have just been near enough to catch a few rays from her glow..2008. But even though they were seemingly attached at the hip, they kept insisting on their respective free agency, with Rihanna telling MTV News in 2008, "We are best friends, honestly, like brother and sister."Just a few months later, Brown said in a radio interview, "Our relationship is growing.
We started off as friends and we're getting a little bit closer now." It wasn't long before they assumed the throne as the prince and princess of pop-R&B, a power couple in the making. 8, 2009, are well-documented (as well as still speculated about), but they resulted in leaked police photos of Rihanna's bruised face shocking the world and Brown pleading guilty on June 23, 2009, to felony assault.

After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that. And I know that's not a place he would ever want to go back to.

And sometimes people need support and encouragement, instead of ridicule and criticism and bashing."Though they would continue to hang out together amid breakup rumors, they seemingly split up for good in April 2013.
Not that that's stopped the guys from veritably lining up to take their chances with the perennially unattainable artist."While we're on the topic of Instagram, I just wanna say it's a bit of an awkward vibe tonight.
I gotta say, I've never been in the same room as so many guys who have DM'd my ex girl," Drake, who has publicly pledged allegiance to Ri Ri over the years, joked during his monologue while hosting the 2017 NBA Awards this week.
