Rihanna Loves Chris Brown, She Tells Oprah
Rihanna and Oprah
Three years after Rihanna was beaten by then-boyfriend, Chris Brown, the singer says she still "truly" loves him.

Rihanna welcomed Oprah to her home in Barbados for an emotional interview – which aired on Oprah's Next Chapter Sunday – where the singer spoke at length about her relationship with Brown.

"I'm single, but we have maintained a very close friendship since the restraining order has been dropped," the 24-year-old told Oprah. "It's not easy."

The Grammy award winner also confirmed what many had suspected – that the former couple reconnected in St. Tropez earlier this year.



"We went to a mutual friend's party on a yacht. It's awkward because I still love him," she said. Adding that when she's around Brown she has to "maintain this poker face."

During the sit-down Rihanna said she is still concerned about Brown's welfare.

"I truly love him," she continued. "And the main thing for me is that he is at peace. I'm not at peace if he is unhappy or he is still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds peace."
