Whilst the rest of the world and his mother has their say on Rihanna and Chris Brown's 'friendship' one person insists she "has no judgement" on the former couple's rumoured reconciliation- Oprah Winfrey.
Rihanna opened up about her fractious relationship with her ex to Oprah in a now infamous interview which aired earlier this year. The interview saw RiRi declare her love for Chris despite him physically assaulting her in 2009.
Now, following the news that Chris ended his relationship with Karrueche Tran over his "friendship" with Rihanna, Oprah has been giving her views on a potential reconciliation.
The talk show queen admitted to Extra: "I think that if she is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him help himself then so be it."
"I have no judgment about it."
Oprah credits her open-mindedness as part of the reason her chat with Rihanna was a success. "That's why I can sit there and have such a great time with her because I do all my interviews with no judgment whatsoever," Oprah explained. "If that's how you choose to lead your life, that's really okay."
The TV star was also full of praise for RiRi's honesty. "You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big wide open heart."
Oprah isn't the only cheerleader for Rihanna and Chris as RiRi's father Ronald Fenty has also come forward to support the relationship. Speaking to In Touch, he described Chris as "super-talented" and said that there's "more to him than the whole world knows."
In the candid interview Fenty said "I love Chris, man. He's got so much charisma."
"And he's always had so much respect for me. That's what I love about him. He's always shown me respect."
He also said that he believes Chris should be forgiven for assaulting Rihanna before the Grammy awards in 2009, saying "I think everyone makes mistakes and they shouldn't be held to them forever. Everyone should be forgiven once. There's a lot more to Chris than the whole world knows."
