With rumours swirling around that Rihanna and Chris Brown have rekindled their romance, Oprah, who once insisted on her talk show, “He will hit you again,” has now spoken out.
“I think that if (Rihanna) is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him (Chris) help himself then so be it,” she told Extra.
“I have no judgment about it. That’s why I can sit there and have such a great time with her because I do all my interviews with no judgment whatsoever. If that’s how you choose to lead your life, that’s really okay.”
Although Oprah is not sure if the rumours about the reunion is true, it was Rihanna who told the talkshow host earlier this year that she was still in love with Brown.
“You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big wide open heart,” Oprah continued. “She was in the space of forgiveness. And that she learned a lesson that she was repeating with Chris Brown — exactly what she needed to learn from her father.”
After hearing Oprah say this, I have a lot of respect for her. Understanding that it is a woman’s right to date whoever she wants, Oprah really does mind her own business and remains supportive no matter what.
I feel we should do the same. While we might not be fans of Brown after he hurt Rihanna, it isn’t up to us to decide what she can and can’t do.
If RiRi’s happy to see him at peace, then it’s only up to us to hope she’s aware of what she’s getting into.
