Kanye West ‘devastated’ over alleged Rihanna attack

Rapper says she is like a baby sister to him

Kanye West has spoken out about the altercation between Chris Brown and Rihanna over the weekend, and says he was “devastated” about the alleged attack.

“I was completely devastated by the concept of what I heard,” he told Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show today (February 10).

Having heard the news just before his Grammy ceremony slot on February 7 with T.I., Jay-Z and MIA, West said “I was completely devastated during the performance.”


The rapper also says he has a great affection for Rihanna, and is there to offer her support:

“In that sense, I feel like that’s my baby sis. I would do any and everything to help her in any situation.”

Rihanna reportedly told police that boyfriend Chris Brown hurt her in an argument after leaving Clive DavisPre-Grammy party on Saturday night.

“All I want to say is, it’s so devastating. Just as a person, I don’t care how famous she is or even if she just worked at McDonald’s … it should never come to that place,” West said.
