Rihanna struggling with feelings

2012-08-22 10:34

Los Angeles – Rihanna finds it hard to hide the fact that she still loves Chris Brown.

RiRi, as the 24-year-old Rihanna is also known, met up with her former boyfriend while holidaying in St Tropez, France, recently and says it was “awkward” because she still has feelings for him.

The couple split in February 2009 after Brown assaulted her.

Rihanna was quoted as saying: “We went to a mutual friend’s party on a yacht. It’s awkward because I still love him. My stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me.

“I have to maintain that and suppress it and interpret that and understand that is not going to go away. That is peaceful. When you don’t understand those feelings, you can make a lot of mistakes.”

‘I had to forgive’

Despite still having feelings for Brown, who was placed under an restraining order to stay away from her, the singer insists they are nothing more than “very, very close friends”.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, she admitted: “We have maintained a very close friendship ever since the restraining order was dropped. We’re very, very close friends.”

And the brunette beauty also revealed she was only able to move on from Brown when she “forgave” him for assaulting her and realised she didn’t hate him.

“I thought I hated Chris and I realised it was love that was tarnished. It looked like hate because it was ugly, it was angry, it was inflamed, it was tainted and I realised that what it was.

“I had to forgive him because I cared about him still. And the minute I let go of that, I started living again,” Rihanna said.
