Taylor Armstrong on Rihanna & Chris's songs

  • Taylor Armstrong was a victim of domestic violence by late ex-husband Russell
  • Taylor says if Rihanna and Chris have 'had the appropriate treatment they can collaborate on a project without it being dangerous'
  • Taylor would like to see Rihanna and Chris use this platform to speak out on domestic violence


"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Taylor Armstrong has openly spoke out about her history of domestic violence with her late ex-husband Russell Armstrong. Now Taylor is speaking to Showbiz Tonight's A.J. Hammer about another famous domestic violence victim, Rihanna, and sharing what she thinks about Rihanna collaborating with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown on two new songs.
Taylor says that she was surprised to hear that Rihanna and Chris Brown were working together again because we don't know what kind of treatment they have undergone. Taylor says, "I do believe you can have a healthy relationship with someone years after. I don't know what their relationship is now, but as long as they're keeping one another safe and at a good distance, or if they've had the appropriate treatment they can collaborate on a project without it being dangerous."
After opening up about her own experiences with domestic violence, Taylor says she has been reached out to by a number of people who have also experienced domestic violence. She thinks that Rihanna and Chris Brown should use their fame to help others as well. Taylor says, "I would like to also see them go out there and speak out to young people, they have an enormous number of fans, and they could make such an impact if they went out and just really started talking about this. To see these two superstars to come out and just talk about it openly would be really powerful." 
Although she is concerned with the message Rihanna could be sending to young fans by working with her former boyfriend Chris Brown again, Taylor says, "I think that they have a real opportunity here to make a huge impact in the domestic violence world and I think they're going to do that right thing."
