Rihanna reportedly wants Chris Brown, who has been charged with felony assault and making criminal threats following his alleged assault on the Barbadian singer in February, to apologize to her on "The Oprah Winfrey Show". She believes the 19-year-old hunk should appear on Oprah Winfrey's famous show to publicly denounce his behavior, Look magazine reports.
"Oprah suggested Rihanna tell Chris that despite their recent commitment ceremony, she's been having second thoughts about them being back together," the Look insider reveals. "And agreeing to go on Oprah's show and tell the world how sorry he is will help make up her mind."
The insider tells the magazine, "Chris said no at first, but bought himself some time by saying he needed to think about it with his mother Joyce." But Chris is said to be "desperate to win over the American public" and he has realized this could be the perfect way. "Rihanna's trump card may be that Chris is desperate to avoid jail and thinks prosecutors will go easier on him if he expresses public contrition," adds the insider.
