The news shocked the entertainment world, yet celebrities were asked for their reactions regarding the Chris Brown assault case. Crazy, indeed, but with the stars of today not knowing the full breadth of the story, they chose to play it safe, with the man responsible for the victim’s career (Jay-Z) not saying anything about the situation at all.
UPDATE: Rihanna’s Family Says, “Don’t Go Back To Chris!” (People) –
Members of Rihanna’s family in her native Barbados thought boyfriend Chris Brown “flew so far under everyone’s radar that we just didn’t think he was that [abusive] type,” a relative tells PEOPLE for its new cover story, on sale Friday.
Brown was arrested Feb. 8 for allegedly assaulting Rihanna in Los Angeles. He has issued a statement of apology, saying he would seek therapy, and he may face charges from the district attorney.
The turn of events comes as a shock to the family. “He was always looking after her needs,” says the relative, “making sure she was happy.”
Rihanna, who turns 21 on Friday, and Brown, 19, were a “perfect match,” an MTV veejay tells People. Now their future together is unknown.
But as far as her father, Ronald Fenty, is concerned, when it comes to Brown, his daughter should “move on.” A relative agrees: “I don’t want her to go back to him. I don’t think anyone does.”
Here’s my thought…
I think that everyone should let them be. People tend to forget that they are young, and they are going to go through it. They need to understand that this is a life experience for the both of them. They need to figure things out on their own and see if being in this relationship is healthy for them. If they choose to be together they need to learn how to communicate and not get physical or violent towards one another. This is like I said an experience that they hopefully will overcome and realize if they should or should not be together and just being good friends and become a voice to those who are in their shoes. Like I saids before and I say it again. I wish them both much success and luck.
I ♥ you both!
