Los Angeles, Jan 31: Singer Rihanna has confirmed she has patched up with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown puting thereby an end to rumours in this regard.
The couple, who separated after Brown was accused of physically assaulting Rihanna in 2009, became close again in 2012. However, since a long time, none of them were confirming their relationship status.
"We're very, very close friends. We built a trust again and that's it. We love each other and we probably always will. I think he was the love of my life," Rolling Stones magazine quoted Rihanna as saying.
Although, Rihanna faced criticism amid rumours of a patch up previously, the singer is not ready to follow others' opinions.
"I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it," she said.
Brown was sentenced to six months of community service after beating Rihanna. However, Rihanna is clear he won't be allowed to behave the same way again.
"He doesn't have the luxury of f***ing up again. That's just not an option. I can't say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that," Rihanna said.
"And I wouldn't have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility," she added.
