Oprah Winfrey has praised Rihanna for being able to forgive Chris Brown and thinks their reunion is okay.

The chat show host, who recently interviewed Rihanna on her show Oprah's Next Chapter about her relationship with the R&B singer who assaulted her in 2009, praised the Diamond singer for being able to forgive him.

Speaking to Extra, Oprah said: ''You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big, wide open heart. She was in the space of forgiveness. And that she learned a lesson, that she was repeating with Chris Brown exactly what she needed to learn from her father.''

Brown recently split from girlfriend Karrueche Tran because he couldn't give up his "friendship" with ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
