"Excuse me?" snapped Ri when asked about her former fling. The interviewer persisted, determined to get an answer. "Next. You obviously want to talk about Chris Brown, I don't," quipped the red-haired singer."
Rihanna later circled back to the incident and took a more general approach, telling the magazine that she's just trying to continue on with her life and leave history in the past. "I wanted people to move on from it, [because] the last big thing they know about me is that night," she continued. "And I don't want that to be what people define me as."
Brown took a more aggressive approach on Tuesday after agreeing to answer a single question about the 2009 incident, yet became irate after the subject was pressed. Once the cameras stopped rolling, he flew into a rage and threw a chair at a window, ripping off his shirt and prematurely leaving the studio. Representatives from ABC said that the network would not press charges against the singer.
