Brown later insisted he was shocked by his violent behaviour because he was "never that kind of person" - but Umbrella hitmaker Rihanna has now hinted there were signs the couple''s relationship could descend into abuse. “There were control issues, insecurity. When people are insecure they become very controlling and they can get very aggressive and in turn abusive," Herald Sun quoted Rihanna as telling W magazine.
“It doesn"t have to be physical. Like they would say bad stuff to you to make you feel lesser than them just so they would have control in the relationship. It takes a big toll on your emotions and on your everyday life. It changes you," she added.
