Nine months after she was assaulted by then-boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna is finally breaking her silence about the infamous night that left her bruised and bloodied.
What made the incident hardest on Rihanna was the fact that Brown had held such a special place in her heart: "He was definitely my first big love," the star admits.
That's gotta hurt, Negus Sealy.
In the interview with Diane Sawyer, airing on Good Morning America Thursday and 20/20 Friday, she warns, "This can happen to me, it can happen to anyone."
Rihanna opens up to Diane Sawyer about Chris Brown.
Both singers have worked to move on since that awful night, with Brown serving his community labor sentence in Virginia and working on his new album, Graffiti.
That record drops December 15. Rihanna is shaking things up her fourth album, Rated R, on November 23. Her latest single, "Wait Your Turn" debuted Monday.
What else will she have to say about her lover-turned-attacker when the full interview airs later in the week? We'll have the latest for you as soon as we know.
