Rihanna a victim of domestic violence?!


Domestic Violence 
Experts Weigh In 
On Brown-Rihanna

The soap opera that is the 
Chris Brown and Rihanna 
saga has brought the very 
real topic of domestic violence
to the forefront of the black 
music community as well 
as the mainstream. 

News that the pair allegedly reunited at a home owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs left domestic violence experts “dismayed” but not surprised at the reconciliation.
Though experts have weighed in since the story broke, neither Brown nor Rihanna have made any explicit statements about the incidents. 
At this point, it’s also unclear whether or not Brown will be charged in the incident, 
as the Los Angeles District Attorney is likely to push Brown’s Thursday court date back due to a lack of evidence.
Lack of evidence aside, 
it has not kept those in high places from painting Brown as the chronic abuser and Rihanna as the victim.

“It makes perfect sense that 
she would go back to him,” 
Madeline Garcia Bigelow
director of the domestic violence 
project at Manhattan’s 
Urban Justice Center, 
tells the New York Daily News. 
“The reality is that when 
you’re in an intimate relationship
with anyone you tend to 
give people chances.”

Another Manhattan psychologist said the reunion sent a “negative message” concerning domestic violence in relationships.  

“I think it sends a really 
negative message that it’s 
okay to remain in an abusive 
relationship and just to 
accept an apology and 
move on. 
I think she’s a role model 
and that’s why it’s such 
a concern.”

  1. If Rihanna and Chris Brown are really back together then i’m sure there’s some kind of psychological explanation why this might happen
