Rihanna 'embarrassed' she returned to Chris Brown

NEW YORK (AP) - Rihanna says she feels ashamed that she returned to Chris Brown after he attacked her in April, leaving her bruised and bloody.

The singer tells "Good Morning America": "That's embarrassing - that's the type of person that I fell in love with. So far in love, so unconditional, that I went back."

Brown was arrested Feb. 8, hours after he was accused of beating Rihanna in a car after the couple attended a pre-Grammy Awards party. He pleaded guilty to felony assault.

A judge ordered 20-year-old Brown, and 21-year-old Rihanna to stay away from each other.

In the interview Thursday, she said: "I am strong. This happened to me. I didn't cause this. I didn't do it. This can happen to me and it can happen to anybody."
