The night of the 2009 Grammys will forever be known as the awful night Chris Brown sent Rihanna to the hospital. Now we learn, it is also the worst night of Chris Brown's life, what he calls "the deepest regret of my life, the biggest mistake."
"Sometimes you row, you fight, with the one you love and things get said, stuff spirals," Brown told the Mirror of that fateful night and added that he worked hard to win Rihanna back. "But she loves me – what can I say? I’m forgiven… but, yes, I worked hard for it."
The two singers often display their affection on Rih's Instagram account. Just last week, the beauty posted photos of her 25th birthday celebrations, in which Brown was very much front and center. Though reports of their relationship have been inconsistent (are they together, are they not?) it seems, from Brown's words and to many people's dismay, that the two are very much in love.
Rihanna herself spoke to "Rolling Stone" magazine last month and said her relationship with Brown is different now, that he makes her happy, and that "even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake." She even accompanied him to his probation hearing recently, a probation he's on to begin with for assaulting her.
Brown, 23, also spoke to the Mirror about becoming a Hollywood pariah and said it doesn't bother him anymore. "They don’t know me and they don’t know us," he said. As for Seth MacFarlane's Oscars joke heard around the world (in introducing "Django Unchained," MacFarlane said, "This is the story of a man fighting to get back his woman, who's been subjected to unthinkable violence. Or as Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, a date movie"), Brown said he's used to being criticized.
In other Chris Brown news, there's a rumor swirling around that he and Rihanna are set to tie the knot this summer. According to Perez Hilton, the songstress has been "sporting a diamond rock on her ring finger" and the two even hashed out the details of their ceremony, including pre-rolled joints and half naked waiters.
With the rate at which their relationship is swinging from on to off to back on again, we'd rather wait for summer to see for ourselves.
