For the first time since she was savagely beaten by Chris Brown, Rihanna opens up in a series of emotional interviews.
The Barbados-born beauty who’s assault photos sickened the world sat down with ABC’s Diane Sawyer and finally breaks her silence.
The first part airs on Good Morning America and then concludes on 20./20 in a AM/PM event.
Rihanna says in the interview promos "This can happen to me. It can happen to anyone."
A production source says the Rihanna was "extraordinarily revealing" that Brown "was definitely my first big love."
RirRi also opened up to Glamour mag: "I felt like I went to sleep as Rihanna and woke up as Britney Spears. THATt was the level if media chaos that happened the next day.
"It was like, ‘What, there are helicopters circling my house? There are 100 people in my cul-de-sac? What do you mean, I can’t go back home?’"
But Rihanna felt worse as the onslaught continued.
"That was not a photo you would show to anybody," she said of the leaked hospital pic showing the severity of her beating.
"I felt completely taken advantage of."
Despite Chris Brown’s attempts at redemption after being given a wrist slap by LA law for the assault, the Rihanna interviews may condemn Brown once and for all in the eyes of whatever fans he has remaining.
