Personally, I thought the photo said it all. Rihanna's face bruised and battered just hours after being beaten by boyfriend and fellow pop star Chris Brown. Friends of Rihanna also say there was a history of abuse in the relationship.
Over the weekend, Rihanna and Brown reunited at P. Diddy's Florida home.
I'm extremely disappointed in Rihanna. It's rare that one hears about abuse in a celebrity relationship and although I don't wish abuse on anybody, this was Rihanna's chance to connect with women who are also being abused by thier significant others. So many girls look up to Rihanna and I'm sure that many of those girls are in an abusive relationship. I believe that by getting back together with Brown, Rihanna is setting a bad example. It's almost like saying "it's ok for your boyfriend to hit you." Well, Rihanna, it is NOT ok for your boyfriend to his you. It is NOT ok for you to get back together with him. Most statistics show that once an abuser, always an abuser.
A psychologist on the Today Show this morning said that Rihanna and Brown will have a honey moon period. There will be no abuse for a while but the honey moon period will end and more likely than not, Rihanna will be abused by the one who supposedly loves her again.
What do the ladies of Gather thing? Do you think that Rihanna should get back together with Chris Brown?
