Rihanna insisted she "needed" to be with Chris Brown as he attended court last week as it proved that she has forgiven him once and for all.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Rihanna confirmed she is back with her abusive ex-boyfriend Chris after he was charged with assaulting her in 2009.

In a strange turn of events, the stunning star accompanied her on-off boyfriend to the Criminal Justice Center in Los Angeles last week.

Sources close to the International songstress says the bold move was to prove to her critics that she has forgiven Chris once and for all.

"Rihanna defied all those closest to her by joining Chris. She said she needed to be there for him when he most needed her in order for people to accept that they are back together. She wanted to show that she's forgiven him," a source told British magazine Grazia.

Rihanna spoke out about her decision to give Chris a second chance in the explosive interview with Rolling Stone.

"I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that... But I got real with myself, and I just couldn't bury the way I felt. I decided it was more important for me to be happy, and I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it," she explained.

"When you add up the pieces from the outside, it's not the cutest puzzle in the world...”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
