Rihanna is known for her kind demeanor. Unfortunately, those closest to her, including the men in her life, have not always returned her kindness. The Grammy Award-winning vocalist famously dated rapper Chris Brown. According to People, the duo had a rocky relationship after meeting as teenagers in 2004.
Brown assaulted Rihanna in 2009, and she survived. The exact police report was obtained by TMZ, and it reveals the "horrific" injuries he inflicted on Rihanna, including blood, swelling, and bruising. She spoke out about the abuse in an interview with Vanity Fair. She commented, "A lot of women, a lot of young girls, are still going through it."
There were also a lot of young lads. It's not a topic to brush aside, so I can't just dismiss it as if it didn't exist or that I don't take it seriously." The singer of "Umbrella" went on to say that she didn't want to be defined by the assault or seen as a victim.
Brown has been accused of abusing several women since then. According to CNN, he was arrested in France in 2019 on suspicion of rape but was not charged because he said the accusation was false. Then, in 2021, TMZ revealed that Brown had been charged with battery on a lady, adding to his extensive list of domestic abuse allegations.
Elton John, a living legend, is adored around the world for his enormous musical production as well as his charity endeavors. Unfortunately, his first love was a brute, according to all accounts. John Reid was Elton John's manager and lover for many years. Reid told The Scottish Daily Mail that their relationship was intense and romantic to begin with "I was his first boyfriend, and we spent five years together as lovers. I was his first great love, and he was my first great love.
Reid, on the other hand, had a bad temper and was prone to violent outbursts. According to Rolling Stone, "He slapped a woman journalist who admonished him and flung a glass of champagne at a man for not having enough liquor at an Elton John reception.
He stomped on and attacked another journalist he said had threatened Elton. He settled with the woman for $2500 and was convicted of assault for the violence." While Reid claimed that his actions were motivated by a desire to protect John, the couple's relationship quickly deteriorated.
According to The Scottish Daily Mail, John sued Reid in 2000 for misusing his funds. He eventually settled with the "Rocketman" singer for £3.4 million (about $4.5 million). "I had faith in him. Following the court hearings, John remarked of his ex-boyfriend, "I never believed he would betray me, but he has deceived me."
John Mayer appears to have a slew of irate ex-girlfriends, owing to the singer-inability songwriter's to keep his mouth shut when it comes to shading his former romances and exposing sensitive information.
Mayer made a series of disgusting remarks in a now-famous Playboy interview, including a weird connection between his genitalia and the Ku Klux Klan, as well as exceedingly obscene s*xual references to his former Jessica Simpson.
He also made ageist remarks about Jennifer Aniston, another past lover, despite the fact that she is only eight years his senior. Mayer and Aniston dated in 2008, and the singer said that they broke up because she was simply too old for him. "If Jennifer Aniston knows how to use BitTorrent, I'll eat my f***ing shoe," Mayer said when asked if he thought Aniston would download his current album.
The fact that I was tweeting was one of the most major contrasts between us... Before TMZ and Twitter, she had a lot of success. I believe she is still hoping for a return to 1998." "I can't change the fact that I need to be 32," he added. It's worth noting that Mayer dated Taylor Swift when she was only 19 years old.
Meanwhile, when Vogue confronted Aniston about her breakup with Mayer, she remained nice as ever, even stating that she felt "protective of him" and calling her ex "a lovely guy."

The Steenkamp family claims that the athlete was tyrannical and mistreated their daughter. "Love makes you blind to everything in a three-month relationship; you're simply happy — but that wasn't the case. She didn't understand why they were arguing, but he was attempting to impose his will on her, possibly turning her into his arm candy "June said.
According to the Daily Mail, Pistorius had previously harmed a lady and had reached an out-of-court settlement with her. Vanity Fair commented, "It's ironic that Reeva Steenkamp died at the hands of a man with a pistol."
