Rihanna on Chris: No Soul In His Eyes
More information about the Rihanna interview with Diane Sawyer has come out today. The full video can be seen on 20/20 tonight. But here are some of the awful things Rihanna recounts to Sawyer.
On what was going through her mind during the attack: "When is it going to stop? When is it going to stop? He had no soul in his eyes. Just blank. He was clearly blacked-out. There was no person when I looked at him."
Rihanna confirms the fight began after Chris Brown received a text from another woman after they left a pre-Grammy party. She says, "I caught him in a lie, and he wouldn't tell the truth. And I wouldn't drop it.”
"I couldn't take that he kept lying to me, and he couldn't take that I wouldn't drop it … It escalated into him being violent towards me. And it was ugly. I was battered, I was bleeding, I was swollen in my face.”
On her reaction to Chris hitting her: "My next option was to get out of the car and walk, start walking in a gown and a bloody face," she says. "I didn't have a plan. That whole night was not part of my plan."
Rihanna says she finally had to make a decision for herself, and not because of Chris. She says, "The more in love we became, the more dangerous we became for each other, equally dangerous. Because it was a bit of an obsession."
On whether she hates Chris: "No, I don't hate him at all," she says. "I actually love and care about him. I want him to do well, have a great career, have a great life and grow up. And just take this as something you had to go through to grow up and learn."
