Singers Rihanna and Chris Brown started out as friends before they announced they were dating in 2008. Their relationship seemed like a match made in heaven. A year in, a scandal-hit that Chris had assaulted Rihanna during a dispute on the night of the 51st Grammy Awards. They never performed as originally scheduled and instead covered their absence with a fake car accident story.
Eventually, the real story emerged and Chris turned himself in, pleaded guilty and took a plea deal. He later apologized to fans and Rihanna via a YouTube video. Three years later, Chris and Rihanna got back together for a couple of months but things did not work out. Since then, they have both been dating other people.
