Rihanna On Chris Brown: "I Still Love Him"
RiRi admits she still has strong feelings for Breezy in her interview with Oprah...
During her chat on Oprah's Next Chapter - which aired in the US last night (19th August) - RiRi was also keen to quash rumours of a reconciliation between herself and Brown, but revealed they remain friends despite his 2009 attack on her.
When asked about Breezy, The Daily Mail reports that the Where Have You Been singer simply told Winfrey: "It's awkward because I still love him.
"My stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me. I have to maintain it and suppress it. When you don't understand those feelings you can make a lot of mistakes."
A clearly emotional Rihanna was then quizzed about her current relationship with Chris, to which she replied: "We've been working on our friendship again and now we're very close friends. And that's not anything we're going to try to change.
"We built a trust again and that's it. We love each other and we probably always will."
The Barbadian babe went on to add that while they are friends now, they will not be getting back together, stating: "I think he was the love of my life. He was my first love."
In the same interview, RiRi also admitted that she still misses Brown, telling Oprah: "I am reminded by a lot of things. A lot of good memories we had.
"By the slightest things; hotel rooms, tour venues, any little thing, music, songs, and I do miss him at times."
