VIDEO Rihanna talks to Oprah Winfrey about losing 'best friend' Chris Brown
It's rumoured the former lovers have been secretly dating since the incident at a pre-Grammy party, but Chris's camp insist he is loved-up with girlfriend Karrueche Tran, 24.
Now Rihanna has been talking to Oprah Winfrey about her ex and the night she ended up with a battered face.
'It was embarrassing it was humiliating... I lost my best friend,' says Rihanna, 24, in an interview recorded in Barbados last week.
And Oprah changed her perception of Ri-Ri during their tearful conversation.
'I thought she was gonna be kind of a badass, a kind of hard edged, rocker, pop woman. Nothing could have been farther from the truth,' says the chat show host.
'She was thoughtful... She was very emotional... She was vulnerable.'
