Rihanna, the pop star and Glamour magazine’s Woman of the Year, has revealed that her first big love was R&B singer Chris Brown. In an interview with Glamour magazine, Rihanna confessed that her ex-boyfriend was “definitely” her first big love.
The couple began dating in 2008, and their relationship was widely publicized in the media. However, in 2009, their relationship ended in a domestic violence incident. Rihanna spoke about the incident in her interview with Glamour, saying, “Domestic violence is a big secret. No kid goes around and lets people know their parents fight.”
Since then, Rihanna has become an advocate for victims of domestic violence. She has spoken out about her own experience, and has also worked with organizations such as the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Women.
Rihanna and Chris Brown have since reconciled, and the two have collaborated on music together. In 2015, Rihanna opened up about her relationship with Brown, saying, “We’ve been working on our friendship again. Now that we’re adults, we can do this right. We got a fresh start and I’m thankful for that.”
