OPRAH Winfrey, queen of America’s talk show circuit, has warned Rihanna against reconciling with her fiance Chris Brown. Winfrey, a tireless campaigner against domestic violence, urged the couple to seek counselling together.


Speaking on her talk show, she said: “It makes me so sad. The truth is that both Chris Brown and Rihanna, if I were your friend, I’d call and say ‘Give it some time, get yourself counselling, take care of yourself and heal yourself first.’


“Love doesn’t hurt and if a man hits you once, he will hit you again. I don’t care what his plea is — he will hit you again.”


Rihanna — real name Robyn Fenty — was allegedly assaulted by R&B musician Brown, 19, on the eve of last month’s Grammy Awards. It was claimed the attack started after Rihanna, 20, discovered a text message sent to Brown from another woman.


Brown appeared in court last Thursday charged with assault and making criminal threats. If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.


Addressing her audience, Winfrey added: “I want to do a show this month dedicated to all the Rihannas of the world. “In our country, the statistic is one out of four women being battered by their boyfriends. “Most don’t tell because they’re afraid that if they do, (their abusive boyfriends) will break up with them.”


Meanwhile, sources close to Rihanna disclosed to The Daily Telegraph that the ordeal continues to take a heavy emotional toll on the singer.


One said: “She’s absolutely humiliated and scared to show her face in public. She feels the whole world is judging her.” The confidante added that Rihanna feels “torn” between supporting her fiance and obeying the wishes of her family who, like Winfrey, are said to staunchly oppose a reconciliation.


Since the alleged attack, the singer has appeared to have fully forgiven Brown, with reports claiming she intends to testify in court on his behalf.


Latest news: Rihanna’s beaten up photo


A celebrity gossip site has posted a photo which it claims shows Rihanna after the pop singer was allegedly struck by her boyfriend, fellow singer Chris Brown.

The image posted by TMZ shows a pair of welts on the woman’s temples, and other marks on her cheek and around her lips. TMZ did not say how it obtained the photo, or how soon after the incident it was taken.

He handed himself in to police the following day, when he was arrested and released on £30,000 bail.

A statement released through his publicist said: ‘Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired.

Too Bad, Rihanna’s concert at Malaysia is cancelled. Her efforts to cover up are now gone down the drain.
Now if you have a ticket, hope you have read that the concert will be rescheduled… Here’s a link to one of the sellers.

Date unknown .


‘Rihanna Live In KL’ will be rescheduled to a future date. The replacement date will be confirmed by artist management within 2 weeks from now. Ticket buyers are advised to hold on to their tickets and wait for future announcement.





Well, Rihanna will have to turn down all that sexiness at her upcoming show in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia next month. After Gwen Stefani and Avril Lavigne got in trouble for wearing skimpy outfits and being too sexy, Rihanna won’t be taking that chance. The Pussycat Dolls organizers got fined $3,000 in 2006 for not following the decency rules for Malaysia. According to regulations, female performers must be covered from their shoulders to their knees.

A district branch of the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party said online, that Rihanna was “sexier and more dangerous” than Lavigne.

I’m glad Rihanna’s following their rules. I think that if you go into someone else’s country you need to follow their customs. Just like if you went over to someone’s house, you need to respect them and do what they say if you’re the one going over there. It’s not such a big price to compromise anyways. Who needs to be sexified every day, right?
