Since then Chris Brown has become public enemy number one, but not so much for Rihanna who confesses her love for the “Turn Up The Music” singer during her sit down with Oprah Winfrey in Barbados.

Earlier this month Oprah traveled to the island paradise of Barbados where Rihanna grew up. RiRi took her on a tour before sitting down with her for a lengthy chat.

“I think he was the love of my life,” Rihanna told Oprah during the interview aired on Sunday night August 19th. “He was the first love and I see that he loved me the same way. We were very young and very spontaneous. We ran free. We ran wild. We were falling in love going in at a really rapid pace and we forgot about ourselves as individuals.”

Over the past year there were several rumors that Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together or getting back together. The two were even spotted partying together on a few occasions. However, Rihanna says they are just friends since Brown is in a relationship with model Karrueche Tran.

“We’re very, very close friends,” Rihanna said while trying to hold back tears. “We built a trust again and that’s it. We love each other and we probably always will. And that’s not anything that we’re gonna try to change. It’s not something you can shut off if you’ve ever been in love.”
