We’ve also got you covered if you’re more interested in the latest on Rihanna herself.
Rihanna began dating fellow chart-topping singer Chris Brown in 2008, but their relationship fell apart before the Grammy Awards on February 8, 2009, when an argument turned violent. Their scheduled performances that night were canceled, and the “Run It!” singer eventually pled guilty to felony assault, for which he received five years probation, six months of community service, and a permanent stain on his reputation.
On the topic of their explosive breakup, Rihanna later told Elle, “It gave me guns. I was like, well, f—. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it.”
Rihanna and Chris set out on the road to reconciliation in early 2012, when she invited him to collaborate on her risqué single “Birthday Cake.” She then reciprocated by appearing on his track “Turn Up the Music.”
RiRi shrugged off the ensuing uproar, saying, “People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”
After igniting fresh romance rumors in early October, the two are now officially back on, with Rihanna telling Rolling Stone in January 2013, “We don't have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about s—. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that. He doesn't have the luxury of f—ing up again.”
