Rihanna's relationship with Chris Brown is perhaps her most infamous. The two began dating in 2008, but their relationship was tumultuous from the start. In 2009, Brown was arrested for assaulting Rihanna, and photos of her bruised and swollen face circulated widely. Brown pled guilty to felony assault and was sentenced to community service, probation, and domestic violence counseling.
Rihanna and Brown briefly reunited in 2013, but ultimately ended things for good. In a 2020 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Rihanna described the relationship as "mentally abusive."
What can we learn from Rihanna's relationship with Chris Brown? First and foremost, it's important to recognize the signs of an abusive relationship. Domestic violence can take many forms, including physical, emotional, and psychological abuse. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, there are resources available to help, including the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
Rihanna's relationship with Saudi businessman Abdul Latif Jameel was much less tumultuous than her relationship with Chris Brown, but it still ended in heartbreak. The two began dating in 2017 and were together for nearly three years. However, the couple rarely spoke publicly about their relationship and were famously private.
In a 2019 interview with Vogue, Rihanna explained her desire for privacy in her personal life: "Since I turned 32, I'm realizing life is really short. You don't have a lot of time to tolerate s--t, you know? You put so much on your plate. When you're overwhelmed, you need to start cutting things out. And I'm overwhelmed too much."
While privacy can be important in a relationship, it's also important to communicate openly and honestly with your partner. If you're not comfortable discussing certain aspects of your relationship with others, that's perfectly okay. However, it's important to be able to have open and honest conversations with your partner about your needs and expectations.
Rihanna's also dated ASAP Rocky. The two had been friends for years before they began dating in late 2020. However, their relationship was short-lived, and the couple reportedly split in early 2021.
What can we learn from Rihanna's relationship with ASAP Rocky? Timing is everything. While Rihanna and ASAP Rocky may have had a strong friendship for years, they may not have been in the right place for a romantic relationship. It's important, to be honest with yourself and your partner about where you are in your life and what you're looking for in a relationship.
Rihanna's dating history is a testament to the fact that relationships can be complex and messy. While her relationships with Chris Brown and Abdul Latif Jameel may have ended in heartbreak, she's also shown that it's possible to maintain strong friendships with exes. And while her relationship with ASAP Rocky may not have worked out, she's still managed to stay friends with him.
Ultimately, the most important thing we can learn from Rihanna's dating faux pas is the importance of self-care and self-awareness. Whether you're in a relationship or not, it's important to take care of yourself and prioritize your own needs and well-being. And if you do choose
