Rihanna credits her mom for her new and far more mature relationship with Chris Brown. She says her mom helped her understand men and herself as well.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Monica Braithwaite is RiRi's motherÂ—and who better to teach a daughter about relationships than her own mom? A source close to the Where Have You Been and Diamonds singer says it's working, too.
"Like I said, she [is] maturing. She [is] not trying to be that old, loud-mouth Ri... She is sophisticated and a young woman. She's on a different level now, and she knows who the f**k she is and what's important in life. So, [she's] just taking a step back and letting Chris be a man and mature, too. After all that s**t went down, she had long talks with her moms, and her moms set her straight about men and made Ri come to understand them better. She [is] in a good place right now with herself and with Chris," the source explains.
Of course, just one mature person doesn't make a solid relationship. Do you think Chris Brown has grown up some since his past relationship with Ri? If she has grown up and he hasn't, they're headed for certain trouble.
Kudos to Rihanna for leaning on her mom for relationship advice and for help growing up. It's never easy, but when someone who loves you sees you through, even the harshest of storms are so much easier to weather.
