Rihanna Opens Up About Chris Brown Abuse To Esquire!

| Filed under: RihannaLove LineChris BrownSad Sad


She gives him a lot more credit than we'd care to, but hey! So long as she's made peace with what happened and has recovered!

Rihanna was recently awarded Esquire Magazine's Sexiest Woman Alive of 2011, and during her interview, opened up about coming to terms with the horrific physical abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, but also revealed that she harbors no ill-will toward him anymore, because she's moved past the pain and resentment!

She explains:

"It's incredible to see how he pulled out of it the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know? I really like the music he's putting out. I'm a fan of his stuff. I've always been a fan. Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I've put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger. I'm really excited to see the breakthrough he's had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have."

Well, we're glad to see that you've put the anger behind you, and not letting it take up too much of your time!

You've always shown a whole lot more dignity and maturity than he ever has regarding the whole debacle, and we sincerely hope that someday he can fully grasp the gravity of his actions, and the effect that they had on you!

You just keep on focusing on you, gurl!

    Wow, she is the bigger woman now isn't she? It is never healthy to hold anger towards anyone, it just is unhealthy and toxic…However, that little jerk is lucky he got off as easily as he did, law-wise….Chris Brown is still an arrogant jerk, that is evidenced in interviews to this date, however as long as his career keeps sliding downwards, that should please certain people.

    nice finger bitch…

    The whole Chris/Rihanna abuse thing was the result of a volatile relationship between two entitled teenagers that got out of hand. Rihanna may have gotten past it, but in order for the majority of the public to get past it, Chris needs to stop acting like an immature ass. He freaks out whenever anyone brings it up - but he doesn't seem to get that they bring it up just to see him freak out. If he acted like an adult, it would soon become ancient history.

    Chris Brown is a wimp.

    Pretty sure his career isn't sliding downwards. Yes, what he did to her was horrible but no one but those two will ever know the FULL story of what what happened.

    Stay classy Rihanna! Anyway, it is her life and if she is over him and what he did to her, it's great that she moved on! Chris Brown is on his 14th minute (out of his total of 15) and won't be known 3 years from know when she'll have more #1s than Mariah Carey, or maybe even the Beatles (She is already halfway there)!

  7. 7

    she's STILL talking about this? Yeah, clearly she's over it

    She should open up a closet and find the pants that she clearly forgot to put on.

    I suspect she wasnt innocent in their volatile relationship and thats why she can forgive. bet she can really be a bitch and push buttons.

  11. 11

    Since she's let it go, do you think the rest of the world will? Probably not, especially you Herman Munster.

  12. 12

    Chris Brown did more for this skank's career than she would ever admit.

  13. 13

    I thought she said she wanted to move on from this situation years ago, yet this and sex is all her interviews ever seem to be about. Shut the hell up and go away you stupid slut!

  14. 14

    Told you…..she still wants him…….

    give it time and she will be seeing him under radar again.

  15. 15

    I like how she said she has moved on yet you want to still victimize her. But this also goes to show you what mature people do.

    Look at the finger and then look at the faces of the kids in the front row.

    That chick broke a glass bottle on her brothers head when she got into a fight. She said she fights like a dude b/c she was around her brother and fought him all the time. Her mother was very upset. She is not as innocent as she tries to come across. Yes Chris was wrong and should have been punished more. However, she needs to stop talking about it and own up to her own anger issues.

    It's gotten so out of hand i don't know who is the biggest (i'll say are do anything to be in the spot light)attention whore Rhianna are Gaga.There both boring.

    The mentality of a person who will continue to seek out abusive partners for the rest of their lives. It's her pattern, and it will most likely stay that way. If it's not Brown, it will be another abuser. I wouldn't be shocked if she has already rekindled the "relationship" out of the public eye.

  20. 20

    She should stop talking about this already.. she is a nasty chick that does not value herself and is a flippen weirdo.. cant stand her.. puke!

  21. 21

    Are you guys fucking stupid??? This is an INTERVIEW she didn't choose to talk about it!!! In INTERVIEWS people are asked a series of questions so media can get a negative response from her!!! The reason it keeps coming back up is because every time the topic is questioned she takes the high road, AND THE MEDIA WANTS AN OUTRAGEOUS STORY!!! But she's to smart for that… Fucking give her praise… She isn't a slut, Thats a a Character she plays in the loud era, Every album she makes spirals into a new era with a new character, Rihanna is still very young and like others her age she just wants to have fun…

  22. 22

    I bet you hoes will rush onto iTunes or Target/Best Buy to cop Talk That Talk come November 21st! You bastards already know what it is!

  23. 23

    Rihanna seems to ALWAYS want to open up about Chris when an ALBUM is coming out…hmmmm. BOTH Chris and Rihanna were young teens who had a FIGHT. They have BOTH moved forward from it. The only person stuck in the past is Perez and haters. Allow them to grow and stay out of it!

  24. 24

    Re: PHWOARR – Shut the fuck up, there is no such thing as pushing buttons and what Brown did was inexcusable and unforgivable. I have lost any respect i had for her, speaking highly of someone who assaulted her so severely, very bad role model for all other women who suffer the same from abusive boyfriends.
    All that 'forgiveness' bullshit is plain bullying for victims, striping away from people their rightful anger.

  25. 25

    Some of you guys are just plain STUPID. If you cant tell by now from how she's always NAKED, her lyrics, and her tweets that she is NOT trying to be a role model, than you are a FOOL. Rihanna claimed to be the face of Domestic Violence, and that was when she was trying to sell Rated R. After that, she never again mentioned a hotline number, or told victims where to go for help. She is not trying to be a role model for anything, she just wants to do her, be a product, and SELL. Rihanna knows there are 2 sides to that story. She always seems to want to highlight that night when her album or perfume is coming out.

  26. 26

    she still loves him ;) and if she is over it why cant everyone else, give her some time and she'd be back(theres always lil hints), besides wat he did he is a good,funny guy. and rihanna always is half naked, her music isnt good,but she still the role model. she needs to get it together TOO! she needs to srsly take her sexy side a little down and be a little bit more muture(cause she is a 'role model'), chris did the wrong thing but he is making his way back up. ive met him , ive met her, there both good people.

  27. 27

    SHES OVER IT ! so u get over it perez .

  28. 28

    Omg, so over that…. like she lived years and years of abuse…. what he did was awful and no I am no fan of him I cant believe she still talks about this… I was in an abuse relationship for 4 years and yes its my fault for staying, you talk like this is the most shocking thing… It happened, she left… end of fucking story!

    Re: ParalyZzzZzer – I agree.

  30. 30

    Re: lailaaa – You are dangerously ignorant.

  31. 31

    She's a dumb bitch how is she moving forward and being mature? She can move forward and keep her self respect by not being a weak bitch supporting him! She sounds like one of those pathetic housewives that's too scared to leave their husband. Hate her. Have some dignity woman and say how what he did is disgusting. What about young girls reading this thinking what he did isn't so bad shes a fuck head

  32. 32

    Re: Everything popular is wrong. – you are ridiculous. and sverly ignorant.
    are you aware that he has had SEVERAL relationships after Rihanna LONGER than him & Rihannas? and they have said tht he never showed any evidence of ANY DV

    are you aware that chris brown was 18 and apologized to rihanna and her father stepped up to the plate and admitted it and plead guilty risking his career at 18? Having people like YOU making IGNORANT comments about him? everyday? no matter what he does ?

    eminem or charlie sheen dont get this hate i dont get it….

    and Re: ParalyZzzZzer – & with your comments im SO SURE youd be an AMAZING role model for ANYBODY….

  33. 33

    I like how rihanna stIll talks about CHRIS but claims she as moved on..i mean come on be real girl you know i stll want him…WHO WOULDNT??? HE'S HOT!!

  34. 34

    To all of you commenters who think 'she can't stop talking about the incident', maybe you need to be reminded that it is the MEDIA who can't stop asking her about it. If the media continually questions her about Chris, what can she do but give them the concise and mature responses that she does? It continues to awe me, the girl's strength and ability to handle the discussion of her feelings toward the boy that broke her heart and the prying into probably one of the most traumatizing and excruciating events of her life.
