Rihanna sat down with Oprah and covered a lot of ground in a new interview with the pop singer about her life and love with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, who nearly beat her to death in 2009.
According to Rihanna in the interview she says she, "lost her best friend."
"It was a weird, confusing space to be in ... because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help ... and who's going to help him?"
Rihanna continued, "Nobody's going to say he needs help. Everybody's going to say he's a monster without looking at the source ... and I was more concerned about him."
"I lost my best friend ... everything I knew switched ... switched in a night and I couldn't control that."
The full interview is set to air Sunday on OWN.
