Rihanna: 'Chris Brown Needed Help After Assault'
More details of star's interview with Oprah leaked on web...
Talking more about the aftermath of her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown's notorious assault on her, the R&B princess suggested that she felt sorry for him because he "needed help".
"It was a weird, confusing space to be in," she says. "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?
"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."
Rihanna's interview with Oprah airs on Sunday evening in the US, so expect more details fresh on Monday morning.
