Oprah Winfrey sat down for a very candid interview with Rihanna in August, where the singer broke down in tears when talking about her relationship with Chris Brown, who brutally assaulted her following the Grammys in 2009.

But now that Winfrey knows Rihanna and Brown are considering getting back together, the talk show host is passing no judgement.

"I think that if she is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him help himself then so be it," Winfrey told Extra of Rihanna on Oct. 5. "I have no judgment about it. That's why I can sit there and have such a great time with her because I do all my interviews with no judgment whatsoever."

Winfrey believes she truly understands 24-year-old Rihanna and how she has come to forgive Brown, 23, after all these years.

"I'm not surprised," Winfrey said of Rihanna's decision to work on her relationship with Brown, who released a personal video yesterday in which he reveals he still loves his ex. "You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big, wide open heart. She was in the space of forgiveness. And that she learned a lesson, that she was repeating with Chris Brown exactly what she needed to learn from her father."

In her discussion with Winfrey, Rihanna revealed that her dad, Ronald Fenty, was physically abusive towards her mother. But as she got older, the singer learned to see past his wrong doings and accept that he was struggling with personal demons that he has now conquered.

Winfrey thinks Rihanna is forgiving Brown the same way she forgave her father.

"If that's how you choose to lead your life, that's really okay," Winfrey expressed.
