is a man of few words (at least publicly), so it was incredibly fascinating watching his new documentary, which candidly recounts his many lifetime trials and tribulations.
I attended a VIP screening of last night at Regal Cinemas in Downtown L. The controversial hip-hop star goes into detail about everything from hearing his mom get beat every night by her boyfriend when he was a kid, to the volatile drama that transpired with by impregnating a brief fling during the one month they split up (a decision he says he wouldn’t change for the world because it gave him his precious baby Royalty, who he proudly said god made just for him).
Once their relationship went public, the couple was and on everyone’s mind.
The then-couple’s 2007 VMA collab was pure fire, and leading up to it, the pair played coy about their eight-month relationship.
Rihanna began crying uncontrollably and Chris (who says he had no idea the girl was going to be there, nor did he want her to come up to him) finally calmed her down and the two left in his Lamborghini.
The duo was arguing incessantly and Chris swore to her that he wasn’t keeping any secrets.
They were constantly fighting from that point on, but remained together for the time being.
On the night of the 2009 Clive Davis Grammy party, Rihanna and Chris (who were still technically together but not on the best of terms) attended, but turmoil ensued when the woman Chris previously slept with showed up at his table to say hi.
