Domestic violence experts dismayed by Rihanna-Chris Brown 'reunion'

By Super Admin

New York, Mar 1 (ANI): Domestic violence experts were dismayed - but not surprised - after learning of Rihanna's reunion with boyfriend Chris Brown.

Brown, 19, who was arrested for allegedly assaulting 21-year-old 'Umbrella' singer, was charged with making criminal threats following an alleged attack on Rihanna after a pre-Grammys party on February 8.

Since the incident, Brown was trying hard to get back to Rihanna by showering her with expensive gifts. He even called Rihanna on her 21st birthday to apologise.

Following the incident, Rihanna had scrapped a planned birthday bash in New York and postponed concerts overseas. The pair is currently at one of Sean 'Diddy Combs' homes.

Now, experts are concerned what message this would send to the beauty's fans, reports The New York Daily News.

"It makes perfect sense that she would go back to him," said Madeline Garcia Bigelow, director of the domestic violence project at Manhattan's Urban Justice Center.

"The reality is that when you're in an intimate relationship with anyone you tend to give people chances," Madeline added.

"I think it sends a really negative message that it's okay to remain in an abusive relationship and just to accept an apology and move on," said Manhattan psychologist Dr. Jane Greer.

"I think she's a role model and that's why it's such a concern," Jane added. (ANI)
