“It taught me so much,” she says of being assaulted by her ex-boyfriend and the aftermath that followed. “I went to sleep as Rihanna and woke up as Britney Spears. That was the level of media chaos that happened the next day. It was like, What, there are helicopters circling my house? There are 100 people in my cul-de-sac? What do you mean, I can’t go back home?”

Making the media circus even worse was the fact that photos of her badly bruised face circulated on the Internet.

“That is not a photo you would show to anybody,” she says. “I felt completely taken advantage of. I felt like people were making it into a fun topic on the Internet, and it’s my life. I was disappointed, especially when I found out the photo was [supposedly leaked by] two women.”
