21-year-old Barbados Beauty Rihanna now joins a list of women who are neither best-dressed nor musically-revered. In the countdown to Cupid’s descent, the arrow of love and affection has bruised her with an unfashionable shade of purple; bruises allegedly caused by the hands of her boyfriend, R&B star Chris Brown.

Proving that domestic violence can leave an ugly mark on even the untouchable world of celebrity status. It crosses all racial, economic and social lines, and is an issue way beyond the national awareness month of October.

According to [Link Removed] sales - for women aged 15 to 44 years, violence is a major cause of death and disability.

I hope Rihanna is okay and knows that she is worthy of true love. And for those of you who may find yourself in the dark facing issues versus the media spotlight, these are the warning signs from a partner that may be putting you in danger:

  • Extreme jealousy
  • Controlling behavior
  • Quick involvement
  • Unpredictable mood swings
  • Explosive anger
  • Isolates you from friends and family
  • Uses force during an argument
  • Believes in rigid sex roles
  • Verbally abusive
  • Threatens violence

    • I really do hope that she learns from stars like Tina Turner and Whitney Houston. She needs to get out now while she’s still able with her self esteem intact.

    • She is reported to be surrounded by loved ones back in Barbados, so hopefully absence makes the heart grow stronger.

      My hopes is to give her a copy of my book [Link Removed]  It is a fictional memoir of a young woman's life-transforming journey after leaving a boyfriend who exhibits the signs of becoming abusive.
