Rihanna’s 2012 Oprah Interview Talking Chris Brown Resurfaces, Twitter Loses It

By Ryan Naumann

A 2012 clip of Rihanna talking about loving Chris Brown resurfaced and caused many to believe it was a recent interview.

Oprah posted the audio of an old interview she did with Rihanna on her “Supersoul Conversations” podcast. Many people believed the interview was brand new but it had been recorded years ago.

During the original chat, Rihanna talked about learning to forgive Chris for his 2009 domestic violence incident which included him punching her in the face and threatening to kill her. The violence left her with a bloody face and bruises.

Rihanna said she is on good terms with her ex Chris. Oprah asked where her relationships stands with Chris today. She said, “We’ve been working on our friendship again. We’ve very close friends. We built a trust again and that’s it. We love each other and probably always will. That’s not anything we‘re going to try to change. It’s not something you can shut off if you’ve ever been in love.”

Oprah followed up asking if they were seeing each other. Rihanna said, “no, he’s in a relationship of his own. I’m single, but we have maintained a close friendship since the restraining order was dropped.” The problem is the interview was over 8 years ago and not recent.


One pointed out, “Even when you read the article, it doesn’t indicate it’s eight years old. I only put two and two together when Google showed the podcast description said Oprah was in Barbados and Rihanna’s grandmother had passed. This is extremely irresponsible to run like it’s new information.”

One fan asked, “If someone needs a relationship/ friendship with abuse.... wondering if Chris Brown needs Rihanna to get him back on track financially?!”

Another wrote, “I swear!!! That Rihanna n Chris brown shit weak af!” One fan had a different opinion writing, “If Rihanna wants to be friends with Chris Brown she can. Y’all mad annoying trying to force your lives on celebrities.”

One asked, “How does Rihanna still love Chris Brown and hate Drake... thats wild.” “Rihanna & Chris Brown were just a toxic couple before y’all got to hyping up being toxic couples on here,” read another Tweet.

“Rihanna & Chris Brown getting back together would be peak 2020,” stated another.
