The pair's one-year-long relationship ended after Chris attacked her in his car while en route to a Grammy Awards party in 2009. Chris pleaded guilty to the same and accepted a plea deal which consisted of nearly five years of probation and one year of domestic violence counseling. 

Even though the two reunited and briefly dated again in 2012, they called it quits on their relationship in a couple of months and officially ended their relationship in 2013. She even spoke about the incident in an interview with Vanity Fair. “I was very protective of him,” she said at that time. 

“I felt that people didn’t understand him. … But you know, you realize after a while that in that situation, you’re the enemy. You want the best for them, but if you remind them of their failures, or if you remind them of bad moments in their life, or even if you say I’m willing to put up with something, they think less of you — because they know you don’t deserve what they’re going to give.”
