As we all could have easily guessed, there are many people who aren’t down with Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s reconciliation late last year. From Lena Dunham to (allegedly) Katie Perry to anybody who doesn’t believe in defecating in the eyes of women, the world was displeased. But even though they split, it’s still impossible to know how the most important person here feels about the situation: Rihanna.
Apparently, Rihanna may be heading to The Ranch’s “Women’s Love and Sex Addiction Treatment Programme,” a “love rehab” for women where patients do a 12-step program — similar to NA and AA — that helps them get over unhealthy relationships. There, they experience treatments like counseling and equine therapy that help them stop linking with “troubled, addicted, abusive or otherwise emotionally unavailable partners.”
According to a source for Grazia, Rihanna is still “desperately in love with Chris,” despite all the awful things he has put her through, and “after talking it through with a psychotherapist, Rihanna is now considering doing a 12-step programme to get rid of her demons.”
If she does go, it would mean a break from her Diamonds World Tour (and therefore a lot of angry fans, which), but considering how important it is for women who have been in abusive relationships to get help breaking that mentality, I hope that people would attempt to understand. Abuse is not an easy thing to get over, nor the codependency that often comes with it, so if this is the course of action she opts to take, that would be a pretty amazing step.
