It can happen to anyone

Rihanna has spoken for the first time about her assault at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in February, in an interview with Good Morning America which will be screened this week.

‘This happened to me. It can happen to anyone,’ she said, while in a separate interview with Glamour magazine she expressed her hopes that more people would follow her example and report when they’re being abused. ‘Domestic violence is a big secret. No kid goes around and lets people know their parents fight.

‘Teenage girls can't tell their parents that their boyfriend beat them up. You don't dare let your neighbour know that you fight.

‘It's one of the things we (women) will hide, because it's embarrassing. My story was broadcast all over the world for people to see, and they have followed every step of my recovery.’
