The 24-year-old singer was attacked outside of the Box nightclub in London Monday morning, when a heckler threw an energy drinkbottle at the star.
British rag The Daily Mail reports that the assailant was a “crazed fan” who “screamed at [Rihanna] about Chris Brown” before hurling a bottle of Lucozade, a type of energy and sports drink, at the star. Rihanna reportedly suffered a scrapedright knee from the incident (which can be seen in the photo below), while her bodyguard was also injured and taken to the hospital.
The attack comes just one week after the “Diamonds” singer appeared at the Grammys with on and off-again boyfriend Chris Brown, 23, happily sitting next to him and making clear their status as a reconciled couple. It was the couple’s first official appearance together at a major event in nearly four years, when Brown assaulted Rihanna on the eve of the Grammys in 2009.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Rihanna admitted that she understood her decision to take Brown back into her life would upset others. “Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake,” she said. “After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
Okay, I see someone is trying to prove a point to her, but she has to live her own life. People should leave her alone. I am probably like anyone else who believe she is not doing the right thing by being with Chris Brown, but we are not in her heart or her head so we don’t know how she feels. Either way harming her to send a message is wrong. she’s been hurt enough. Let the poor girl live her life….mistakes and all! just sayin’
