Speaking to The Mirror, Brown said, “Sometimes you row, you fight, with the one you love and things get said, stuff spirals.” He added that Rihanna has, in fact, forgiven him after many months of what he calls “serious making up.”
“That night was the deepest regret of my life, the biggest mistake. But she loves me – what can I say? I’m forgiven. . . but, yes, I worked hard for it.”
One thing Chris Brown knows well, though, is that although Rihanna may have forgiven him, there are a lot of people out there that haven’t. The incident was even the butt of a nasty Oscar joke by Seth MacFarlane at the 85th Academy Awards.
“People attack me and criticize me, it happens all the time. But they don’t know me, and they don’t know us. It doesn’t bother me anymore. Other people can judge us but they don’t know anything,” he said.
Chris Brown and Rihanna are officially a couple once again.
In an interview last month with Rolling Stone, Rihanna told the magazine that dating Brown makes her happy. She said, “If it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake.” She did say it would be a deal-breaker if he ever even hinted at that behavior again.
"He doesn't have the luxury of [bleeping] up again," she said. "That's just not an option. I can't say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that."
Chris and Rihanna celebrated her 25th birthday in Hawaii recently. And on Oscar night, Brown told Page Six, “We are really happy. She is the most beautiful girl in the world.”
