While Rihanna didn’t mention Chris Brown by name you can recall that her relationship with Chris Brown was one of the most painful celebrity romance to unfold before the public eye.

In 2009, Brown assaulted the Bajan pop singer leaving her battered and bruise. He was sentenced to five years probation and has served time in jail.

Since their dramatic split in 2009, the former couple rekindled their romance twice before calling it quits again. These days they remained friends and occasionally speak to each other.

The DreamWorks animated film hit theaters on March 27. This is Rihanna’s first animated film.
