“My trust totally was lost with her. She hated me. After that I tried everything. She didn’t care, she just didn’t trust me after that. From there, it just went down hill because it will be fights. It will be verbal fights, physical fights as well, mutual sides,” he said. “This is the first I get to say anything and like I said, I still love Rihanna but I’m just gonna to be honest. We would fight each other. She would hit me and I would hit her. It never was okay.”
The documentary also features testimonies from celebrities including Terrence J, DJ Khaled, and Mike Tyson that attest to the chemistry and tension between the two superstars and what it’s like to be young, famous and in love.
