Rihanna has not only forgiven Chris Brown, the "Talk That Talk" singer has admitted to still being in love with him.

"I'm single but we have maintained a very close friendship since the restraining order has been dropped," Rihanna said in an interview Sunday. "It's not easy."

As previously reported, the Grammy Award winning singer and actress joined Oprah Winfrey for a no-holds-barred interview in Barbados. Open and honest, she also confirmed rumors that she and Brown reconnected in St. Tropez earlier this year.

"We went to a mutual friend's party on a yacht. It's awkward because I still love him," Rihanna said while admitting that her "stomach drops" when she's around him. "I have to maintain this poker face."

While they have reconnected, not just in person but via music on the remixes to their songs "Birthday Cake" and "Turn Up The Music," Rihanna has moved forward but still cares about Brown's well being.

Calling him the "first love" of her life, Rihanna says "I'm not at peace if he is unhappy."

"I truly love him and the main thing for me is that he is at peace," says Rihanna. "I'm not at peace if he is unhappy or he is still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds that peace."

While appearing "Oprah's Next Chapter" Rihanna also had a few special moments, including giving her mother a house and visiting her childhood home.
