Veteran actress Joan Collins has warned Rihanna not to return to her on/off boyfriend Chris Brown - insisting it will make her life a misery.
The five-times married Dynasty star has offered some relationship advice to the Umbrella hitmaker following the singer's bust-up with Brown in February (09), that reportedly left her battered and bruised.
And she is adamant Rihanna should steer clear of the R&B star for good - because he will never change.
Collins tells Britain's OK! magazine, "I made a few mistakes but one of the things that I would say to a girl like Rihanna is never go back to a man who hits you. Never, ever. Any man who hits you once will hit you again. No man has ever hit me. They know I wouldn't tolerate it for one second."
Brown was charged with two felonies - assault and making criminal threats - following his altercation with Rihanna in a car in Los Angeles.
He was arraigned in court on Monday (06Apr09) and will return before a judge for a preliminary hearing on 29 April (09).
