Brown wants Rihanna to stop mentioning assault

Chris Brown wants Rihanna to stop talking about his assault on her three years ago.

The incident led to him pleading guilty to a felony battery charge but Chris feels his ex-girlfriend constantly bringing up the drama isn’t helping.

A source told website RadarOnline: "Chris is just confused about Rihanna's decision to bring up the past again and again - this time in an interview with Oprah.

"Rihanna has previously given wide ranging interviews about the beating to Diane Sawyer and several print magazines. Chris just doesn't think it's productive or relevant to rehash the events since essentially nothing new is being revealed in the interview Rihanna has done with Oprah.

Apparently he thinks that they need to stop addressing the rough patch in their relationship in order to progress with their friendship and careers.

The insider continued: "Chris doesn't begrudge Rihanna at all for talking about it but he thinks that in order for them to both move forward and not be defined by that one night, it would be better to stop bringing it up."

Rihanna admits in her upcoming interview on 'Oprah's Next Chapter' that she felt "protective" over Chris and was more concerned with his well-being than her own in the wake of the 2009 incident.

She said: "It was embarrassing, it was humiliating. I lost my best friend - everything I knew switched - switched in a night and I couldn't control that … it's not easy for me to interpret - it's not easy to interpret on camera with the world watching."
