Rihanna -- Chris Thought He Was Invincible

11/7/2009 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna feels Chris Brown had "no limits" because fame came to him at such a young age -- and that may have played a role in the brutal beating earlier this year.

Rihanna

Rihanna told Diane Sawyer on "20/20" last night, "Fame came to Chris very young ... You're a kid and the word 'no' doesn't exist? You become invincible. There's no right or wrong, you just do."

RiRi also said she hasn't heard Chris' "apology" song and thinks his apology video online looked like he was reading from a teleprompter.

SOMETHING WENT ON THAT NIGHT THAT CHRIS WANT TO KEEP PRIVATE AND I HAVE A GUT FEELING THAT IT IS NEGATIVE ON RIHANNA'S CHARACTER. I THINK RIHANNA SAID OR DID SOMETHING THAT MADE THIS YOUNG MAN LOSE CONTROL!! I DO NOT THINK WE WILL EVER KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENED THAT NIGHT, BUT AS FOR CHRIS I WISH YOU ALL THE HAPPINESS IN THE WORLD AND I WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT YOU AND THIS IS REAL TALK!!!!

Funny how so many WOMEN overwhelmingly support this woman-beating criminal? What is it, the cr@tch ruling peoples good common sense. I don't give a cr@p WHAT went on that night in the car. DID EVERYBODY SEE THE PICTURES OF THIS WOMAN'S FACE???? To say that this is so easily 'forgiveable' is an insult to ALL women. It doesn't matter what went on that night. We saw CB's FACE after the incident & we saw Rihanna's. PERIOD! If we as women don't RESPECT ourselves more than this, then your right, why shouldn't the CB's of the world just pound away on us!

1) The reason that its "okay" for women to slap men is because Men are usually(not always) stronger. a slap may sting, but its really not much more than an insult.

Punching, choking, headbutting, Biting.... yeah thats um... over the line. Its obvious that Chris Brown is much stronger than Rianna. Its bad enough to hit her, but biting. Whats up with that? Biting!

She didn't comment on whether she liked Chris Brown's bow tie on his interview with Larry King, did she? Then what am I here for?

"Accept this as a man would and accept the responsibility and not find a way to feel sorry for himself." Straight up.

Rihanna is scared to admit she hit Chris and was also abusive because she is trying to avoid charges that would be filed against her. Its hard to believe that someone (Rihanna)who can smached a bottle in her brother's head causing him to get stitches over a silly disagreement they had, would not hit her allegedly cheating boyfriend that she was in a heated arguement with after she discovered the text message form the other women. she felt betrayed and angry. And given her pass abusive behavior she had to first attacked him in a rage. During her interview she state "I would not back down, I would not let it go." Sounded like a physical fight to me. Rihanna was Chris Brown's first real relationship. She was more experienced in that department and she usually date older men.Chris Brown was a boy trying too hard to be a grown man to please Rihanna and to prove to her he can handlle an intense reltionship. Chris was her friend that she told all her secrets to, who she hates and so on and he even consoled her when she ended her prior relationship. At first their relationship was good, but I guess after a while she was bored of chris being a goody goody boy friend so she decide to spice up the relationship with her disfunctional love of fighting and arguing. She also could not make up her mind if she wanted to be in the relationship or not, one minute it's on and the next minute it's not, so he did know what she wanted so if he got a text she shouldn't have went off like that, and she did. Chris was wrong to hit her. I wish he did not but his hand on her, but he did and he paid for it with loss of endorsements deals, also public humiliation. And he is still paying due to his sentencing. Criss had admitted wrong doing on his part took resposibility apologized and is remorseful. However, Rihanna on the other hand did not tell the entire truth. She did start the physical fight. SHE DID NOT DESERVE A BEAT DOWN, PUT SHE DID HIT FIRST. In the 20/20 interview Rihanna said "We were equally possessive of each other." If I hit him first does it make it right for him to do that to me?" People read through the lines she is abusive also! It surprises me to see that she is ready to talk when her CD is about to drop. Question, why are her handlers pitching her against Chris? He did his interview and he is coming out with his CD they watched his moves and then they came out with their interview and upcoming CD this is no coincidence. If criss did not make any moves they would not have made their moves like that. THey shouldn't have forced her not to take any resposiblity for abusive contribution to their relationship just to clean up her mad girl image and to sell her CD. _____________TO Criss, God forgave you, like he forgives any other that ask. Don't worry about the negative things people say. You should only care about what God say. Chris please be strong dont let the darkness win stay close to God. Work on strengthening your relationsip with God call out to him ask him to strengthen you, protect you and bless you. Read Psalm 23 and Psalm 27. I think there will be good out of that bad situation, your rediscovering of God's love for you leave everything in his hand. His powers are everlasting. people need to understand that God gave us the gift of life and after we die he will determine what will happen to us. you never heard of anyone returnig from the dead and function the way God made us because they have money. So dont worry about Rihanna and the people who are trying to block your career and stop you from using your God given talent. I believe the reason why darkness sent you an intense relationship (Test) like that is because you were on your way to being a mega global star the way Michael Jackson was before he had all those legal problems. However, don't look at it as you fail the test but as I mentioned above, an opportunity to rediscover God in a stronger way. Continue to make music that touch people like 'forever' and dance your way to redemption. God is giving you a second chance. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the one who is, who was, and who is coming.Revelations 1:8

Idiots. That is why women are in such a position all over the world. A young woman got hit as hell and you keep whining about hitting him first and bs like that. Wake up! When it happens to you, I hope someone will be there, telling you that you asked for it! Get an education or something.

I WOULD THINK MORE OF THIS INTERVIEW IF SHE WAS NOT TRYING TO SELL AN ALBUM, SHE COULD HAVE SPOKEN MONTHS AGO. WHY NOW I HAVE TO ASK? SHE COULD HAVE SPOKE LAST MONTH THE MONTH BEFORE LAST BUT IT WAS ALL PLANNED TO WELL TO SPEAK RIGHT NOW. SALES WILL BE EXCELLENT FOR HER, PEOPLE TAUGHT HER WELL. WELL SCRIPTED I HAVE TO SAY, WHEN SHE WAS ASKED WOULD SHE GO BACK TO HIM SHE THEN COULD NOT LOOK DIANA NO LONGER IN THE EYE AND STARTED GOING OFF SCRIPT LOOKING AROUND IN THE ROOM, I SAY SHE NEVER LEFT HIM.

As the former wife of 80's pop star Stevie Woods, I believed each incident would be the last, but in reality, the violence only escalated through time. A victimizer will abuse every woman he's with. Love is a hard addiction to break, but you must end it before it ends your life.

I usually like your posts because of your staunch defense of MJ, but I don't think this was necessary.

It was mean-spirited. Don't be like that.

The only news here is the Rihanna asked for it. Chris Is a hood rat. He sings about being a hood rat. He dresses like a hood rat. He hangs around hood rats. What part of my Sarcasm are you not seeing? The only News is when people are taken off the streets and given the opportunity to change there lives, do they?

This comment is from a mother who has a son who has experienced domestic violence. For months, he suffered in silence for men are suppose to be the strength in the family and far too often, people don't want to believe that women can be abusers.

On the last occassion he actually went to jail because when the police arrived they would not accept that SHE was abusing him and because SHE had a couple of marks on her arms where he was trying to hold her back to prevent her from hitting him.

Now mind you, he had plenty of marks showing that he had been injured (an open cut on his forehead where she had thrown a phone and struck him, a busted lip from her swinging at him, a bloody nose and tons of scatches) but of course - society dictates that it MUST be the man at fault - never the woman.

However a WISE JUDGE asked my son (after seeing the pictures of his injuries vs hers) was he being abused and he fessed up. This same WISE JUDGE decided to ask their children what had happened and they told him that mommy always hit daddy, or throw things at daddy and that on this occassion (they were also trying to get him for child endangerment because he 'fell' with his youngest child in hand) that mommy pushed daddy down.

So although Chris had NO RIGHT to hit Rhianna, I as a mother of a previously abused son can see in her 'storytelling' that the whole truth of that evening has yet to be told.
