Rihanna is not really angry about Chris Brown beating her up.
It's sad, but true.
Following a period of contention and awkwardness after this very unfortunate and disturbing incident in 2009, Rihanna and Brown started talking again.
Heck, there's even been chatter that Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together, which is just gross and depressing to think about.
But just because Rihanna is pretty much over the time her ex-boyfriend turned her face into a punching bag doesn't mean that she wants Brown to bring this ugly topic back up for public consumption.
And yet that's exactly what the anger-filled singer does in his new documentary.
Screened for audiences last week, Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life takes fans behind the scenes of this controversial's artist's universe.
Brown says early on in the film that he wants to be known going forward as the "baddest motherf-cker on the stage instead of the baddest motherf-ckler in the courtroom."
And one way in which he tries to fix his image is to hearken back to the incident that is most responsible for destroying it.
Yes, Brown talks in detail his intense relationship with Rihanna from way back in the day.
He explains how they met... how he had to convince his fellow singer that he was serious about her... how they got into various physical altercations over the years ... and then, of course, how it came to be that he bloodied and bruised her face on the night before the Grammy Awards in 2009.
According to Brown, the stars got into an argument after one of his ex-lovers surprised them at a party thrown by Clive Davis.
Rihanna was mad this woman was there and Brown tried to convince her that he had no idea she would be in attendance.
They yelled. They screamed. Rihanna allegedly cried. And they left the party in anger to sort things out.
During the car ride home, Rihanna found an unread text message from this same woman to Brown, informing the artist that she'd be at the aforementioned gathering.
At this point, she got especially mad and Brown responded by punching her in the face. Repeatedly.
He says she also scratched and clawed at him and tossed the car keys out the window after they pulled over and that a passer-by heard her screams and called the police.
Rihanna then went to the hospital and Brown was placed under arrest.
He never spent a day in jail, however.
With so much time having passed and with many celebrity gossip followers likely unfamiliar with her past, sources tell Hollywood Life that Rihanna really wishes her awful ex had not made this topic news once again.
“Rihanna is pretty pissed Chris is bringing up their old drama again,” a totally real source tells the website, adding:
“She never wants to be put in that position again, and she still carries pretty deep scars, as much as she tries to act otherwise.
"The experience itself was hugely traumatic, but the way it played out so publicly added yet further to the trauma."
We can only imagine.
We'd never want to be associated with Chris Brown, period... let alone be associated with him as an ex-girlfriend and victim.
"Rihanna wants to be known as this fierce, independent, strong woman - not be tainted with this weak, victim label,” the insider concludes.
”She’s struggled to get close to anyone and has developed deep trust issues when it comes to men.”
Again, we can only imagine.
This is why Rihanna's friends keep begging her to leave Brown alone, to get as far away from him as possible.
Perhaps one positive that comes from Brown broaching this topic again is that it will finally hammer that message home for the beautiful star.
