UPDATE 11/6/09: Part 2 of Diane Sawyer's exclusive interview with Rihanna reveals what happened on February 7 and why their love was so volatile. "He was definitely my first big love. We fell in love with each other. To fall in love with your best friend is pretty scary. The more in love we became, the more dangerous we became to each other--equally as dangerous because it was a bit of an obsession almost."
What happened on that night? "I caught him in a lie. He wouldn't tell the truth. I wouldn't drop it. I couldn't take that he kept lying to me. I wouldn't drop it and obviously his back was up against the wall because the truth was right there in the text message. So, it escalated toward him getting violent toward me. It was ugly."
When the incident occurred in the car that night, thoughts went through Rihanna's head. "When is it going to stop, when is it going to stop. He had no soul in his eyes. He was blank. He was clearly blacked out. He was not the same person when I looked at him. I was bleeding. I was swollen in my face. There was no way of me getting home. My next option was to get out of the car and walking in a gown and a bloody face. I really don't know what was my plan. That whole night was not part of my plan.
"He was my best friend and we were in love, it just takes time. Love does not go away right away. He didn't accept that very well. Obviously, he didn't want us to be apart. I know had to make a decision for me. I don't hate him at all, I actually love and care for him. I'm concerned about him doing well. I want him to have a great life and career and grow up and learn. Take this as something you have to go through and grow up."--E.W.
