Several years ago, a huge buzz emerged on the Internet. Indeed, Rihanna was severely struck by her darling at the time, Chris Brown. A story that had gone around the world and had not failed to shock the fans.
It must be said that the two lovebirds seemed to live perfect love. Several years after this terrible drama, Chris Brown had decided to return to the evening when he hit Rihanna.
During this period of confinement, many people suffered violence from their spouse. These times of stress and uncertainty greatly aggravate cases of domestic violence.

Peace is not just the absence of war. Many women under lockdown for #COVID19 face violence where they should be safest: in their own homes.
Today I appeal for peace in homes around the world.
I urge all governments to put women’s safety first as they respond to the pandemic. pic.twitter.com/PjDUTrMb9v
