To say that Rihanna has had a mysterious relationship with Chris Brown over the past few months would be an extreme understatement.
Ever since being spotted together in New York in early October, Rihanna and Chris’ feelings for one another have only grown stronger, it seems.
According to a report from MediaTakeOut.com on Wednesday, Jan. 30, Rihanna has decided to come forward with an explanation as to why she begun spending more time with Chris, who was arrested in February of 2009 for assaulting her.
"I decided it was more important for me to be happy, and I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that,” Rihanna stated in upcoming issue of Rolling Stone. “Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."
Rihanna understands it may not be the best look for her image, but at the end of the day her happiness was a top priority.
"When you add up the pieces from the outside, it's not the cutest puzzle in the world,” Rihanna admitted. “You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it's different now. We don't have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about [stuff]. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that."
