Women Who Loves Psychopaths: Rihanna's Obsession, Chris Brown's Possesion

Rihanna on WhoSay

There goes my last drop of sympathy for this woman. To be a celebrity of her level of fame, and glorify, glamorize, romanticize and idolize an abuser - and especially your own abuser, whose abuse has been well-publicized - is reckless, ignorant, imbecilic, weak - and dangerous. No matter if she likes it or not, there are kids, teens and even adults who look up to her, and her actions - good or bad - might be emulated, adopted and followed. To impressionable teens, domestic violence is almost romanticized. The hidden message in the entertainment consumed by them is that if he hits you, it's out of love – which is absolutely wrong.

There is no doubt there will be people who will interpret their toxic, obsessive and abusive relationship as love because it's intense, but love and abusive relationships are mutually exclusive. If you are drawn to relationships like Ike & Tina, Chris & Rihanna, Blake & Amy, Tyson & Givens, Edward & Bella and Harry & Marion, then something's off.
