London: Singer Rihanna is annoyed as she can`t believe she stayed with Chris Brown even after he assaulted her.

The "Rude Boy" singer was assaulted by then-boyfriend Brown in February 2009, and though they split following the attack, they briefly reconciled. But now Rihanna admits she can`t believe she didn`t end the relationship sooner, reports contactmusic.com.

"It was a situation I always told myself I would never allow myself to be in. It`s something I would force girlfriends to get out of. But there I was, sitting in it," she said.

"I witnessed physical abuse happening to my mum and I always said I would never let that happen to me, and then it was happening to me. Now, when I look back at it, it just bugs me out that I couldn`t see it for what it was," she added.
