"He was definitely my first big love," Rihanna told Diane Sawyer in November 2009, her first time speaking publicly about what happened.
"The more in love we became, the more dangerous we became for each other."That was hardly the end for them, as a 50-yard restraining order (Rihanna wanted it quashed entirely, but the judge insisted on at least 50 yards, 10 at industry events) didn't keep the two apart for the long haul.
They would reunite off and on, including in 2012 when Brown guested on a remix Rihanna's racy track "Birthday Cake" and she joined him for "Turn Up the Music."Confirming that they were dating once again, Rihanna told at the beginning of 2013, "I decided it was more important for me to be happy and I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that.
After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that. And I know that's not a place he would ever want to go back to.

And I was like, ‘I am always over here and we like each other obviously, let’s just do it…Let’s just be boyfriend and girlfriend…’.” He reportedly continues to describe her shock at what he said. I don’t think you want to do that…You ain’t ready…’And I was like, ‘I am, I am ready for real…I think I love you!
