The status of their relationship has been tensely debated for years since their explosive break-up.
And Rihanna in a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey last weekend admitted despite its violent end, she still loves ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. The 24-year-old singer confirmed to the talk show host in a revealing interview that the pair ARE still 'very close friends' and that despite leaving her battered and bruised in the road after a vicious beating, she 'still loves him.' And in words that must have felt like a stake through the heart of Brown's current long-suffering girlfriend Karreuche Tran added: "We love each other and we probably always will." The television special for Oprah: The Next Chapter showed Winfrey describe the fall-out from the horrific night after a pre-Grammy party in 2009. After re-counting the events, a tearful Rihanna, real name Robyn Fenty, opened up about where the pair's relationship now stands. Of the incident in 2009, Rihanna conceded: "It was embarrassing it was humiliating... I lost my best friend," she said. But the singer admits since the restraining order was dropped against Brown in February 2011, the pair have been working on their friendship, having seen each other as recently as last month in St Tropez. "We've been working on our friendship again and now we're very close friends," she said. "And that's not anything we're going to try to change." But she said it's still difficult to see her ex, because her feelings are conflicting. "It's awkward because I still love him. My stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me. I have to maintain it and suppress it,' she explained, adding, 'When you don't understand those feelings you can make a lot of mistakes."

Kris Humphries' parents to divorce
A year ago, Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian walked down the aisle as they celebrated their illfated 72-day wedding.
And on their first 'anniversary', it has been revealed that Kris' parents’ marriage has also crumbled, with his mother Debra filing for divorce earlier this month. The mother-of-three filed in Minnesota following the breakdown of her relationship with Kris' father, William, according to documents seen by TMZ.
The business-minded couple own several Five Guys Burgers and Fries restaurants throughout the state.
The news comes on what would have been Kris and Kim's first wedding anniversary, following their sumptuous celebrations in front of 440 guests, including the likes of Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato and Ryan Seacrest. The Brooklyn Nets’ basketball player is currently seeking an annulment of his marriage, claiming it was staged for Kim's reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
A court date has been set for November, meaning the couple's divorce is unlikely to be settled before next year.
Kim and Kris, who became engaged in May last year after dating for six months, married in a lavish ceremony which was documented in a spin-off reality TV show Kim's Fairytale Wedding.

Why I'll NEVER go naked on film
Blake Lively has ruled out ever doing nude scenes. The Gossip Girl star said she is not a fan of stripping off for acting roles and said she found nudity in movies 'distracting' to the plot.The 24-year-old said: "When I see nudity in movies, I am always distracted by it. I know that if I am watching a scene and someone has their boobs out, then that's all I'm looking at - I can't help it. I just don't think that will ever be right for me."
Lively, who is dating Ryan Reynolds, is one of Hollywood's most sought after young actresses. She was recently seen in the Oliver Stone thriller Savages and is known to have an enviable body. She insists she does virtually no exercise to maintain her slim figure.She told Style magazine: "I am terrible; I don't do any exercise — I'm going to have to learn the hard way. I love food too much, and my family is from the South, so the food I like is not necessarily the best for you." Lively said she realises how fickle Hollywood can be and relies on her family and close friends to keep her grounded. "The same people who love you to death one day will hate you to death the next, so who do you give the keys to your self-worth to?" she said.
"You have to have those keys for yourself. And you have to surround yourself with people who are honest with you. I need honesty. I need good friends who can say, 'I love you to death, but you look terrible in that and you need to change right now."
