The OWN Network has just released a longer clip of Rihanna talking about the infamous altercation she had with Chris Brown. Watch it inside and see Azealia Banks banned Dazed & Confused cover and get deets on Chris Brown and Drake being sued by Greenhouse.
On this Sunday's episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" Rihanna reveals her state of mind right after the controversial altercation she had with Chris Brown in 2009. Although she was angry, she admits she was more concerned with his welfare than her own as she felt the world hated him. She tearfully said in the clip,
"I lost my best friend... everything I knew switched -- switched in a night. And I couldn't control that. It's not easy to interpret on camera, not with the world watching.
I felt like the only person they hate right now is him. It was a weird, confusing space to be in.
Because as angry as I was -- as angry and hurt and betrayed -- I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help. And who's going to help him? Nobody's going to say he needs help, everybody's going to say he's a monster, without looking at the source. And I was more concerned about him."

Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., the company that owns the "Greenhouse" brand outside of NYC is suing both Chris Brown and Drake for the altercation that went down at Greenhouse in NYC. In the $16 Million suit, the company claims Chris and Drake,
"shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman" and "began to fight violently with each other."
The suit continues with very dramatic language about the evening saying,
"Each arrived with his own small army of bodyguards, 'security' personnel, employees, friends and other members of their entourage consisting of at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat."
It even adds, that the two groups "fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture."
We'll let you know if a judge takes the bait.
