Rihanna has opened up about the Chris Brown assault, describing it as "embarrassing."
The pair dated for three years before Chris brutally assaulted her before the Grammy Awards in 2009. Shortly after the incident, RiRi gave a TV interview about the shocking experience but has scarcely talked about it in the public since.
In an interview with Elle magazine, RiRi opens up about the fallout from the assault and how she dealt with the intense media attention.
"I was like, well, f**k. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing," Rihanna said.
"But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. I wanted people to know who I am. Whatever they take that to be, good or bad, I just want them to know the truth. It’s like, one less skeleton in the closet, one less burden, one less secret."
"Now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide."
Rihanna has reportedly infuriated her management, Roc Nation, for going against their decision for her not to collaborate with Chris.
