girlfriend best friend forever, Gayle King, says, "Right now I can't think of anything that makes me support anything that Chris Brown is saying at this time. And my heart just aches for Rihanna."
Gabrielle Union, however, took a more diplomatic approach, saying, "I know them both. Unfortunately, no one knows all the facts yet… what I think is great about this unfortunate situation is it can get us talking about violence… violence is never the answer. It's good to get that dialogue started. I wish this wasn't the catalyst for that… it's never good to use violence as a means to an end."
And Akon basically gave Rihanna a shout out, saying : "Keep doing what you're doing baby. Keep things positive!" He added, "She's a strong woman. I think she'll get through it."
Everyone's got something to say except Rihanna.
Hopefully she will speak soon. But, more importantly, we hope she's in good spirits!
