Update: Chris Brown has been charged with two felonies. Here’s the update.
After the release of Rihanna’s hit “Umbrella,” my tween daughter became a big fan. Personally, I prefer her song “Disturbia” – it’s even part of my kick boxing soundtrack!
So, it shocked me when I heard that her boyfriend, Chris Brown, had assaulted her.
What shocked me even more was the fact that I got the news from M. She’d heard something about the charges from an older girl at school — and she’d asked me about it.
Fortunately, M hasn’t seen the photos of Rihanna’s face. More than anything, I want my daughter to have healthy, loving, caring relationships. Having women role models who emulate this is key.
Domestic violence is an issue close to my heart, and I know that women ages 16 to 24 are most vulnerable to experience a boyfriend becoming violent, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
The fact that Rihanna recently reconciled with Chris Brown is very disturbing. That’s why, today at Singlemommyhood, Dr. Leah and I urge Rihanna to get some support.
Please read our plea to Rihanna here.
