Rihanna Issues A Statement Telling Fans She "Remains Strong"

Rihanna Issues a Statement Telling Fans She "Remains Strong"

Rihanna issued a statement today reassuring fans that she is doing okay. She has been spending time recovering from Grammy weekend's horrible events, and other than her rep saying she is "doing well," this is the first time her camp has spoken. The statement reads:

"At the request of the authorities, Rihanna is not commenting about the incident involving Chris Brown. She wants to assure her fans that she remains strong, is doing well, and deeply appreciates the outpouring of support she has received during this difficult time."

Hearing that she "remains strong" is reassuring as our hearts and thoughts are still with Rihanna. There is still a long road ahead for the singer as we continue to send our love on her 21st birthday.

Even if she hit him first, it still wouldn't be enough to defend Chris' case. He should have known how hard he can hit, and that he could hit harder than she could. Or whatever, nothing merits something this awful, and Chris Brown NEEDS a strong reprimand! And I really want her to press charges. Even being in love doesn't merit that sort of kindness.

Hi Sarana, You asked why he hasn't been put in jail. My guess is either she is not pressing charges or the police may not have the evidence they need to charge him regardless of the picture.

This whole event is so sad:( I saw the most awful Facebook group today as well...'Don't et Rihanna ruin Chris Brown's career'...I think he did that himself...he doesn't deserve a career in the media anymore.

Why hasn't he been arrested? Didn't she press charges against him?

I agree with esmerb. Thanks for not posting that picture. I unfortunately ran across it on someone's Twitter, and it was very disturbing. I really hope the best for Rihanna.

I hope for quick healing for her, both physically and emotionally (although the latter, I'm sure, will take some time). I made the mistake of looking at some Chris Brown fan message boards. I know, I was kind of asking for it, but I couldn't believe some of the things they said. I can't believe that anyone would be so forgiving of violent crimes under any circumstances.

it's really good news that she's finally coming out and even if it's a topline statement like that - it's a step in the right direction for her to get back to normal life.

That picture of Rihanna was so disturbing, I'm glad to hear that she is doing okay. Chris Brown is an asshole and deserves to be put in jail.

Damn, well I was doubting this whole thing before, but poor girl was BEATEN! ugh, seeing the picture was sickening. It's a shame because I thought she and Chris were a cute couple, but this man deserves to be put in jail for beating a woman like that. It's so sad.

I STILL wanna give Chris Brown a good smack upside the head, and then some. Alas, I have to console myself with the knowledge that he's put the torch to his career.
