Chris Brown's Dad Speaks Out

Chris Brown's Dad Speaks Out

Chris Brown‘s biological father is opening up about the altercation between his son and Rihanna.

Clinton Brown, a 44-year-old corrections officer, tells People, “He’s reflecting on this situation. He’s very remorseful. He’s very concerned about the situation and he wants to make sure that [Rihanna's] okay. This is unfortunate, this stumble, this situation. Hopefully, he will get past it. We all have our shortcomings. We all trip… This music industry is very unforgiving when it comes to having indiscretions. He will continue to be a good person. He loves people. And like most of us, most humans, things will occur. And hopefully a person won’t be judged simply on that alone.”

    sorry this won’t do it,! he is a loser, i will never look at him the same way. I’ve been through abuse myself in the past.. Its very typical for the him to show remorse , however it wil continue, until the relationship is over. I hope RIRI wont take him back, cause the abuse won’t end.

    no sane “human” would do such a thing. it disgusts me. he can make escuses as he pleases. he will never be looked at the same through my eyes. oh; and “concerned” enough to go to vegas for the weekend? it shows. KARMA.

    Chris needs to speak out. It seems like he’s just wishing this all away by not talking. With all these people talking it does make what Chris did to be right, they are trying to play off his temper like it’s apart of him and we have to accept it.

    He probably will get on and say he’s sorry and that he didn’t mean it, the whatever got out of hand and he just lost his temper and he would never do it again.

    Right. Talk with your mouth and not with your fists.

    guys, its not like Chris feels GOOD about hitting a girl. he’s probably really sorry for it. yes, beating a girl is wrong but theres two sides to every story. just dont expect him to speak out about it yet, he just need time to think.

    jolly: that is horrible. no one deserves to get beaten.

    Erica Says:

    Of course Chris didn’t mean for any of this to happen. Look at his history. He’s no woman beater. But because he’s black, these companies took away his sponsors. He’ll be back. So lick the black behind our backs.

    yes we all make mistakes but some mistakes are much more serious than others
    this is not just an ordinary mistake, this is serious
    its really hard for me to believe he is a good person after what he has done

    W Says:

    Ok, it’s true that this industry hounds everything that they do.
    But honestly he’s protecting his son like he’s done nothing
    wrong. I don’t care if he was some normal guy on the street
    it doesn’t make it ok to hit someone. We all DO trip but this
    isn’t something that we see and say, “Oh well we all make
    mistakes.” NO because HE ABUSED someone A WOMAN!
    And that’s not ok.

    Anon Says:

    Wow. I guess his PR people finally got someone in the family to show some remorse. I guess this is the closest we’ve got to a half-assed apology. Not good enough.

    Time for Baby Boy to man up. He chokes a woman until she blacks out, beats and blackens her eyes swollen shut, busts her nose and splits her lip and tries to literally beat her brains out. He is shouting, “I’m gonna kill you” and the 911 operator can hear her screams. He puts her in the hospital. He gets a celebrity lawyer, goes in the back door of a police station, spends less the 45 minutes and takes a private jet to Las Vegas for a week. His father says, “He will continue to be a good person.” Yeah. I mean, WTF. It’s right and totally expected that your own father and your family would support you. I guess Chris also “$$upports” them. Chris needs to be in jail. He is headed in the direction of O.J. All week, on his private facebook page he’s not been very “remorseful.” He and his “posse” have been saying and spreading horrible, ugly things about Rihanna. As if that should excuse what he has done. Now, he ‘s just a phoney trying to stay out of jail.

    How’s he gonna learn his lesson from this if there is no consequence. He has to pay a price. I don’t mean losing endorsements. I mean a personal price. If Chris Brown had beaten Carrie Underwood, what do you think he would be doing right now? Would he be hanging in Vegas with a new woman and his buddies? Would all these celebrities be so quiet about taking a stand on this?
    People get so defensive because the media and law enforcement has always been prejudiced against minorities. But this is Black on Black crime. Yes. What he did was a crime. How childish is it to think he can just say, “Sorry” and walk away.

    good Christ! his father is a corrections officer? well, his son is a woman beater. he should know a criminal. what a shame his son is one.

    Chris won’t get any sympathy from me. too bad i have his songs. no more buying his tunes. i don’t support domestic violence. i don’t support woman beater. good riddance!

    Susan Says:

    Who in the hell is this guy kidding? Of course he’s going to be judged on his actions. You don’t beat on someone and expect everything to go away because he feels remorseful. This will hurt his career for a long while and possibly for good and tell me what woman will want to be with a man that has done this? I hope he gets to “reflect” on this situation in jail. Maybe then he will learn that domestic violence is wrong and it’s obvious he hasn’t if this is his second go around.

    Come on CHRIS, don’t you have a mouth, well you better start talking, even if it is just to apologize to Rihanna and the public, media, who ever. You better do it quick smart if you care about your career as you have given yourself a bad reputation over this incident. Yes we are all humans and sometimes we do stupid things but come on you had the world at your finger tips. My son idolizes you, you have to be a better role model for these young kids, so fix this or you will lose lots. Also seek help for anger issues. God Bless You.

    If one has made mistakes, lets do our part then( Public) – NOT to JUDGE others action.

    There may be some issues between the two of them that time that provocation resulting to violence then. Whatever issues was that only the two of them could resolve it.

    Will just wait , time comes when Rihanna & Chris are ready to speak out for themselves.

    matt Says:

    Well when Christopher walks around with got milk and sugar free gum ads in his back pocket, and tons of young adults admiring his person, I think it is COMPLETELY fair for him to be judged on these actions and these alone. It was a tiny insight into the person behind the product and its about time everyone knows he’s not as pretty as he may seem. Get over the game.

    We have not heard it from Chris yet. Isn’t it a bit ironic that Chris is all manly man when he is beating on a woman but he needs his Daddy to speak for him afterwards. Chris himself has not shown any remorse. None at all.

    Matt Says:

    Please….Chris Brown was always a hood rat, a lowly ghetto dude with no real education. You can see it in his face, in the way he looks.

    It’s Rihanna’s fault for slumming it with this loser to begin with (not that she deserved such treatment mind you, but what was she thinking?!).

    i read a comment somewhere in tmz comparing chris brown to michael phelps mess. she wrote brown is black that’s why he got punished hard like pullin out all endorsement for him ,but phelps was forgiven and got away with it because he is white. For all i know phelps got caugth doing bong or whatever you call it ,BUT he didn’t beat ANYBODY much more a WOMAN.

    Please everyone we all make mistakes but we learn from them. So stop critisizing him. And who knows maybe she (rihanna) was the one startng the argument. He wasn’t an abusive man before so it’s not a big deal now. I hope he will speak up very soon for the sake of himself.

    cATHY Says:

    People, please stop judging this man without all of the facts! I am a woman myself and I am definitely not convinced that Chris Brown is the monster that you all are trying to make him out to be. I have been checking them out for a while and have not seen any signs that he is an abuser. Until now, Rhianna has not showned any signs of being abused. Everytime you see them together, she is all over him. This is definitely not the way an abused woman behaves. Please wait until the full story comes out and judge for yourself. The media has a way of twisting stories and giving you bits and pieces of the truth. I personally believe that Rhianna started the fight after a woman texted Chris Brown, and any injuries she suffered were from Chris Brown defending himself. Yes, believe it or not, women do abuse men too.

    Oooh, I just beat the crap out of my girlfriend…a famous star…Will the people forgive me, will my fans forgive me…I made a mistake, I didn’t mean it, I just didn’t think that I would get caught……..YEAH RIGHT!!!!
    WHAT AN A-HOLE!!! ABUSE IS ABUSE IS ABUSE….IT DOESN”T MATTER WHO HAS DONE IT!!! ANGER MANAGEMENT, What ever he needs to do, he better do it fast before his career goes further down the drain…fortunately for him, there will be some ignorant fans that will just dismiss his behavior and love him anyway…Yeah, he’ll grow from this and his DUMB ASSSSSS better learn from it too!

  32. 32
    athena Says:

    Well then, #31, Maybe Chris Brown should do some talkin’ instead of having everyone else do it for him…most people are suggesting, even his biological pappy is suggesting he’s got anger issues….now most people know that when you give air to fire it blows…so, we know, they’re both a part of the problem…and it reads like Chris Brown has got to figure out a solution other than being remorseful of the problem he put fire to.

    No matter what the freakin excuses are,he shouldn’t beat riri 2 a pulp.. What a chicken..Running away after knocking her out?It shows that he is brave enough 2 lay his hands on her but chicken enough 2 escape.. Duh!..As his fan i was disgusted by his intolerable actions.. Even if riri did taunt him,he should kept his cool and ignore her..He looks like the boy next door but now,he shows his true colours..No gal deserved 2 be treated this way..Chris is the no 1 jerk right now.. Having his family speak up 4 him shows they care bout what might happen 2 him..It looks like he don’t give a care bout the mess he created..he’s got plenty of dough,a celeb lawyer 2 back him up,he ain’t worry a thing..Let’s just sit back and see what will happen 2 him..

    Anon Says:

    Be realistic. He is facing a criminal charge with real jail time attached. He’s been hiding out trying to figure out how to play it.First he was in denial. He was all, ” just wait until you hear what she did! She started it! You need to know her true colors! ” So right tehre you know he’s a punk and a coward. He didn’t want to admit and take responsibility for his own behavior. He wanted to deny he did it. He even thought she would back away from cooperating.
    So now, it sounds like his natural father is “Sort of” admitting Chris did something wrong. “He is remorseful.” That probably means Chris is going to try and plead this out. The evidence is the photographs that were take, and probably the blood and fingerprints from inside the car and his DNA in the bitemarks on her arms. So he can’t exactly deny he did it. OR say that it was her fault. I think it has taken him a week of arguing and pouting to realize he needs to act sorry. The key word is “Act.” If he show remorse, he might get away with a slap on the wrist. How rotten is that. He better hope none of those photographs the police took ever get out. They said she looked horrible. I wonder if she will have any permanent damage.

    patheticwomendisgustme Says:

    Cathy #31, you’re as pathetic as the lame excuses you’re giving for CB’s beatdown of Rhianna. I’m sure that you “checking them out” amounts to ****. The facts as reported by the La Times and the police report leave no doubt as to what occurred. Irrelevant is what started the fight. There is no justification for a beatdown like that. You’re an even dumber ****** for implying that she got those injuries from CB defending himself. He has a black belt and is over 6 feet tall. If he wanted to defend himself there are plenty of other ways to do it. Please explain why ******* didn’t have any injuries on him when he turned himself in to the cops. Rhianna has actual, visible injuries. What is he remorseful for (as per his dad), that he got caught? Read Anon’s post, cause I don’t need to reiterate facts for someone as ignorant as you.

    SWEEYHONEY-someone should kick the **** out of you and then you can say its no big deal. Stupid, ignorant ******!! STFU. You’re as dumb as a bag of rocks.

    Tell you what. If Rihanna beat on him, and he was on his way to the jail to turn himself in, yu better believe on the advice of his lawyer, he woulda not had no hood over his face. He would want to look all pitiful. But now he is booked and bailed and hiding in Vegas. Rihanna is the one all bruised and bloody and went to the hospital. He nees to be responsible. I hope they put him in the jail. Bcz like it was said, he has no respect for women. And I think it is typical and funny that the people who are defending him the most are women. I agree things would play out different if it was some Carrie Underwood. Or even a Paris Hilton. Paris woulda had his butt underneath the jail by now.LOL!

    Keep in mind that a random observer on the street made the 911 call after seeing the assault and hearing RIhanna’s screams. He’s not sorry! If he was his camp wouldnt be trying to justify it by implying that she cheated or gave him an std. Since no one, but dumb ******* like cathy and sweethoney were buying that crap, now they’ve changed their tune to “he’s so remorseful”. Bullshit! That’s why he’s hanging @the Hardrock with his boys. No way to say remorseful than with a weekend jaunt to Las Vegas! He needs to be tossed in jail where BUBBA can make him his *****! This is a big deal and in no way should be minimized. BOYCOTT THIS ******* AND ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS HIM OR MINIMIZES THIS. CONDONING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IS WRONG. HEAR THAT WILL SMITH/TERRENCE HOWARD/ASHANTI!!!!!

    oh shut up, all of you. as if hitting someone else is such a bad thing. so he lost his temper, he made a bad judgment call. no, it should not have happened but he slipped up. he’s a 19 year old KID for christ’s sake. hopefully he’ll learn from this and get the proper help and move on. so get off all your soap boxes *******. i’m sure the men in (all) your lives would like nothing better than to knock you in the mouth as well. and to #4-sarah? you sound like you deserved it. now everyone leave chris alone!

    charlize Says:

    For whatever reason, whether Rihanna was the person who started the argument, whether Rihanna was wrong in the first place, Chris Brown was WRONG WRONG WRONG to beat her. This is a crime and he should be punished. I will never look at him the same. I used to love him so much (I went to his concert). Anyway, he is still very young. I hope he learns his lesson and try his best to be a better person. Also I just hope Rihanna will get well soon. She probably will learn a lot from this experience.

    chris is a grown man at 19 and should be able to speak for himself rather than have his dad, cousins, or whoever….speak for him. also he needs to realize this isn’t kindergarten where saying i’m sorry makes everything alright and all is forgiven and okay. instances such as driving under the influence and hitting/threatening another person can not simply be forgiven with saying you’re sorry. so sorry chris that your career is likely never going to recover from this, but lucky for have more money than most of us will have in our lifetime so i think you’ll be okay.

    And people who were his “fans” and left him after this they aren’t true fans.

    jhffjd Says:

    He’s loosing way more fans for every second that goes by & he doesn’t man up & give a statement, but than again if he did indeed beat his gf than he isn’t a man anyways. Could it be that he is in so much shock about what he did that he can’t even admit it to himself, maybe he didn’t know he was a capable of doing that to his gf & can’t accept it, either way the sooner he admits to his faults the better that way he can start to make amends for what he did & he should probably go into some kind of program for anger management because if he did beat Rihanna he obviously has some issues he needs to deal with.

    Miss Merry Mack Says:

    It’s easy to see what the problem is here. Chris has never been held accountable for his actions. Every single person around him sugar coats it and tries to shift the blame away from Chris.

    It has been said he has hit her in the past and she forgave him. Again allowing him to escape consequences to his actions. I used to think he needed therepy but now I think he needs hard prison time. This kid needs a serious wake up call and a good dose of reality.

    common sense Says:

    It’s amazing how some people are willing to excuse Chris Brown’s behavior. “Everybody makes mistakes…” “he’s a good person…” Blah blah blah. Would you like someone to make this type of “mistake” like this with your daughter, sister or mother?

    Is rape a “mistake”, an “altercation”? Would it be okay with you if he had lit her on fire? Because many abusive boyfriends resort to this sort of action. How far are you willing to go to defend him? Because I’m here to tell you that beating down a woman is a hop skip and a jump from raping her.

    And the implication that Rhianna must have done something to provoke him is appalling. What could she have possibly done? Thrown a few nasty words at him. He had the option of walking away, an option which he had no trouble exercising when he ran from the scene of the crime.

    Many of you have offered up silly platitudes to excuse Chris Brown’s behavior , all because he has talent. Well it looks like his talent lies in other areas too!

    A mistake is saying something you shouldn’t have. Beating the crap out of your girlfriend- basically trying to kill her then running away when you realise poeple have heard it, that’s not a mistake, that’s your true personality coming out. Whether she started the argument or not, you still beat the crap out of her.
    Jared, you clearly support this abusive, spoilt young man and only print pro-Chris stories. Domestic abuse might be ok to you but not to me, and I’d like to think if she’d been a friend or relative of yours you’d be a little more upset. I wont be reading this site any more.

    ERICA—You are pretty foolish. If an African American can become the president of the United States, then you and any other African American can do anything. Please don’t fool yourself or make excuses for his behavior. If a white man beat and left bruises and bite marks on his girlfriend or ANY woman for that matter, they would lose their endorsements as well. This is fact. NO ONE needs to sit here and accept domestic violence as a MISTAKE. It is no “mistake”. It is wrong. He knew what he was doing. It’s not okay. He is not okay for doing it. Do I believe him to be a “loser”? No. I think he can get past this with therapy and a lot of help. There is hope for this young man, for sure. But the minute we start letting people believe this is simply a little “mistake” and that it’s not so bad, then we accept domestic violence.
    OH and to SWEETHONEY—I don’t care who starts the argument. There is always the option of WALKING AWAY. You can always, always WALK AWAY. Remove yourself from the situation. It’s that simple. I sure hope you never experience domestic abuse in your life. Because if you did I’m sure you would NEVER claim it to be “no big deal”.

    for someone who in 2002 spoke very much Anti women abuse and said “he will Never Disrespect any woman after witnessing his mother being abused” Now we question Rihanna’s fashion statement with the eye-patch as well – what was she hiding????
    this dude needs treatment and for those who say this Is Rihanna’s fault needs to have their own heads checked out!!! NO-ONE NEEDS TO BE TREATED THAT WAY – if you cant control your temper GET TREATMENT!!! and if there is no action taken against him -THIS WORLD NEEDS TO REALISE THAT ABUSE IS NOT A NORM OF SOCIETY BUT A SICKNESS AND THOSE WHO ARE NOT ANTI ABUSE ARE JUST PLAIN ACCOMPLACES!!!

    dms Says:

    It doesn’t matter if he is a teenager, he knows it is not right to beat a woman. There are no excuses for his violent behavior. Speaking from experience, he will be sorry for what he has done and apoligize to the world, but there is no doubt that he will strike again. Look it what happened with OJ Simpson and his history of violent behavior….

    O Says:

    I’m going to have to agree with J. We can’t make excuses for what Chris did and we shouldn’t try and minimize a domestic violence situation. However, everyone needs to back off. It’s obvious that Chris has serious issues for him to have resorted to beating his girlfriend up. He needs some real serious counseling and therapy. When you come from an abusive home like Chris did, it’s not surprising that he would grow up to be an abuser himself. Both Rihanna and Chris need time to deal with situation. Neither of them have given out formal information regarding the case and everyone that’s been talking has been either a close friend, family member but never the principal players. We all need to sit back and wait for both Rihanna and Chris to come out with formal statements.

    Lack of sleep, stress, diet pills, and wine.

    Did someone say that his credit card had been mysteriously
    maxed out, or switched, or closed?? At the gas station.

    Did Chris have to go inside and pay cash,
    and while he was gone Rihanna got behind the wheel,
    and crashed later on, and gotten injuries from hitting the
    stirring wheel?

    Sorry to agree with Chris’ dad, but its true. We all have our slip ups, but I hate that people make such a big deal about this when kids are being abused, but no one seems to really care about that.

    It’s like…”9 year old boy beaten and murder.”
    Reaction: Awe poor kid at least he is somewhere better.

    “Chris Brown beats Rihanna”.
    Reaction: OMG! What the heck is wrong with that fool. He better go to jail blah blah blah blah. I’m not gonna listen to his music anymore lets take it off the radio blah blah.

    Seriously everyone needs to calm down.
    A celebrity makes one mistake and people go bazurke.
    A man in Texas beats his son to the death and everyone forgets about it the next day.

    Sheesh, people in this country. No wonder Chris beat Rihanna. Living here would make me wanna do the same.

    Oh everyone needs to stop making excuses.

    So stop making up stuff.
    Wait for the real story to come out soon.

    sillyme Says:

    I agree, he’s young, immature, and will make mistakes. But, he needs to speak out and say that, rather than having all his people coming out and trash talking Rihanna. Maybe he’s not saying anything now publicly because there’s a legal case pending, and, if so, that’s fine, but eventually he will need to admit what he did and take whatever punishment he deserves. Chances are, there will be no jail time. But, there should be some kind of community service where he speaks to other young people about this. Look at how Michael Phelps handled the pot thing – like a man.

    And, for those who say it’s no big deal, please. A man who strikes a woman, especially with an open fist, it IS a big deal. The fact that he left her bleeding in the street IS a big deal. That shows character, or lack of it. Sure, he’s probably a nice kid…but, with poor character. My grandmother was killed by her husband (not my grandfather), who had hit her once and said he would never do it again.

    First they’re his family so THEY have to stick up for him. Second, he is probably giving his people money. So they R living the good life being part of his excitement. As for the “we don’t know what happened” crowd? We know she went to the hospital and he went to Las Vegas. We know both of them had jobs to do. They are Singers. They were nominated for Grammys. Neither one of them showed up at the biggest event of their careers. They missed the Grammys because the cops had a warrant out for him, and she was in the hospital. SO those are things we KNOW happened. The “We don’t know” crowd is in denial. Chris is like O.J. He done this before. He will do it again. It is his personality. This was a lucky break for both of them in a way. She could have been killed. With this being so public, if you are his fan, then pray for some “tough Love.” He should really pay for what he did. He committed a crime. He should get punished. He might learn from that. And so should Rihanna. She is lucky to be alive. She needs to walk away and get counseling. Wesley Snipes beat Halle Berry so bad he put her in the hospital. She lost part of her hearing. Then she married David Justice and he beat on her. Then she married Eric Benet and he cheated on her allll the time. Now she is finally happy.I don’t want to see Rihanna go thru 20 years of trouble like that. Or worse, to be dead.

You think by beating a woman, no less, is a mistake? you yell, curse, or scream can be a mistake but being physical and beating her to death is NOT A MISTAKE. Chris will be judged, and ritefully so!

    Ginger Says:

    I don’t know what made Chris Brown abused Rihanna like that… I don’t know what kind of problems they had prior to that incident.

    But I’ve seen some women who deserved to get sucker punch. Especially when they be going and going and cursing and hitting the man, punching him in the face, degrading him, belittling him. Saying cruel things about his family and friends…

    Yeah, at that point, they deserved to get hit just to shut them up….

    However, if she was just sitting there and yelling at him at some disagreement that they just had, then she doesn’t need to get hit. But if she goes on and on and on and on and on and try to say crap about his family or starts hitting him, yeah, she needed something to shut her up.

    But there’s two sides to every story. So we all should wait to hear what happened and what Chris Brown had to say before we start throwing him under the bus.

    Plus I heard Rihanna was hard to please. that’s just going back a year or so ago when she went back home and acted like a princess. I read it on a blog somewhere. kekeke here? kekee

    What I do not get is the acceptance this behavior has among famous Black men. They should at least say “It ‘s wrong to hit a woman.” Period. They don’t have to say anything specific. I have to applaud Kanye for speaking out. He didn’t trash Chris. He just spoke up for Rihanna. He said, “This should never have happened.” I like Kanye for saying that. He took a stand.

    I”m glad you brought up the eye patch! Other people saw her within the last couple of weeks with bruises on her neck where he choked her before. She has let herself be a punching bag for him! Like somehow, she thinks she deserves to be beat on. This kind of thinking can get her killed.

    I have been in this situation, and have went to therapy for it. In my group, we talked abnout how, the victim ALWAYS think they “caused ” it. They always feel like there is something they can do to stop it or control it. It takes time to realize there is nothing you can do. This is on them. The only thing you can do is RUN.

    I know he wrote Disturbia for her CD and they sometimes perform together. I really hope her management isn’t forcing her to be around him because of that. If she is permanently damaged (choking is bad for your voice!) or killed she can’t make them any money!!!

    I find it sad that there are people who think domestic violence has to do with class. I had a girlfriend growing up whose parents were quite well to do and her dad beat her mom. They kept it under wraps. Violence against women happens to all women of any culture and any class and the quicker we realize that, the quicker we can tackle the problem. Believe me, all KINDS of women are being subjected to some form of violence – beatings, date rapes, you name it. To not see that this is a problem of any social class is to really minimize the sheer magnitude of this awful problem. Why not volunteer at a domestic violence shelter instead of making in accurate social commentaries on this serious problem?

    One thing I find ironic is that everyone says ‘beating up women is wrong’.
    What the hell kind of message is that supposed to send?
    That beating up men is okay?
    No one said anything when T.I was proven of weapon and drug possession, that R. Kelly was doing it with an underage girl, ect ect.
    The only reason that people are so “angry” over this is because RIhanna is a star. The higher up you are, the harder you’ll fall.
    Plain and simple.

    Chris Brown’s behavior is a HUGE shout out to a lot of young boys out here. Whether he meant to or not, he IS a role model. Young boys and girls aged 14 on up look up to him. Especially the guys. He just gave them permission. I don’t want to go to the mall and see some young guys grabbing and pushing and getting rough with a girl and hear them say, ” I’m a’ do a Chris Brown on yo’ ass!”

    We need some high profile guys to TAKE A STAND. His father is his father. His comments and opinions are exactly what you’d expect from family. But when you consider what an earlier poster said, that Michael Vick is in prison fbecause he mistreated DOGS, then this is beyond disgusting.

    What the hell is wrong with you? There are pictures taken by the police immediately after the incident. Rihanna has a busted lip, bruised lumps on her forehead, black eye, and bite marks. Because she is fair skinned, there are also handprints on her. CHRIS DID NOT CALL the ambulance for her. He hit her until she did not move anymore. She was knocked unconscious by him.

    regardless of what happened, no matter what a woman says or does – a bloke never hits a woman! i dont condone women hitting either . even if this was the case it doesn’t give a man the right to hit a woman. once a man lays a hand on a woman in a violent manner it speaks for itself – only a coward is capable of that – there is no excuses for it, it’s not a mistake – it’s not something they learn from – it should never happen – this sums up my opinion of the dude – he’s a coward and always will be – once an abuser always an abuser, hope i never see his face again – if this dude could of got away with it – he would of, if an apology does come out i’m sure it’s for his career not a remorseful empathetic apology for what he’s done to the poor girl

    I know people who have a worse temper and yet never had to physically attack someone else.


    I don´t think that he´ll be making statements anytime soon. Not only because the process has only begun just yet, also, he would most probably like to talk to Rihana first, don´t you think.

    Ts, ts, ts……..I´m really curious to know how this all happened in the first place.

    i’m already tired about this sh*t, because some sh*tty douchebag totally went nutso on his girlfriend who he be accusing of flirting with guys, which makes him jealous understandably because he’s a young kid who needs to feel like riri is his woman. but he’s a f’n loser, and i can’t listen or see his sh*t around anymore because that kid just fd it up. i hope she beats the sh*t out of him too. i mean i wish she was stronger and bit his arms and mushed him up like how he did her…he lost it cause she was stressing him over a text he got from a female, and then she threw out his car keys and this young puppy then start acting like a belligerent man. i have to say i was alright with both of them as artists, and now i can’t stand either, but especially him. what the hell did he need to beat down on her for. what is is fn problem? now everyone knows and everyone’s talking about it, so he better be the big man he wants to be and stand up and take the heat or actually fn regret what he did and apologize, but more so apologize to her, because he messed her up. it’s not okay for any guy to do this to their girlfriend and also it’s not right for people to think his actions are acceptable. it’s only acceptable if it was equal punishment, an eye for an eye and everything. i think he can continue to have a career after this, but now everyone will know him as “that guy”…if you’re so insecure to be in a relationship then don’t be in one. for both of them. i’m actually really tired of this sh*t and i don’t want to see this story anymore. i hope she’s okay. he can rot wherever he is for all i care. i mean RUNNING THE F AWAY AFTER YOU BEAT YOUR GIRLFRIEND THEN HIDING OUT AND BEING A LITTLE SH*T HAVING PEOPLE TALK FOR YOU AND CHANGING YOUR FACEBOOK NAME. yeah you didn’t even call the ambulence to get her checked out, but some STRANGER had to report the incident. what an fn dingbat. i can’t believe he ran away. get an fn life kid and start acting like the grown up you want to be so bad. yeah i’m judging him, cause if i messed up like this and people were judging me it would only be right. he thinks this is all going to go away soon, but it’s not, and also he needs to stand up and say he did wrong.

    Honey, are you alright?
    Yes Chris, but I am pretty banged up.
    Listen, baby I don’t want you to tell the police,
    when they get here, that those three men did this to you.
    I want to take care of them, personally. That is how we do things
    where I come from. It is called street justice.

    When the police get here, you just tell them that I fought with you.
    Tell them that I threatened you. I am going to make those
    guys pay for this, personally. I will hide over there by those trees,
    until they take you to the hospital. I will call you and tell you
    where to meet up with me, later.

    I love you. Bye, until then.

    (Maybe this FAKE story is better than not having any sort of

    None of it makes any sense.

    My fake story sounds more feaseable than what

    If Chris was held at gun point, while some men

    Chris Brown should be forgiven. Everyone makes mistakes. Even though he abused Rihanna, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s all his fault ? Maybe Rihanna has done something bad to him for him to react in such a way ? C’mon, worse things have happened. People might hate Chris Brown after this and think his all ” fake ” and such. But think about it , How much do you know Chris Brown to judge him that much ? Afterall, people do exaggerate. I’m pretty sure Rihanna must have taken abit of advantage from this situation to make things worse. Personally, I’ve always loved Chris Brown, his music and everything. And i won’t stop liking him because everyone makes mistakes, Be thankful Rihanna did get worse.

    My babysitter was married at an abuser – for 5 years she was working for me and I have no idea – she looked sad a lot and whenever I enquired she said it was her family and never wanted to elaborate – I had NEVER EVER seen her face messed up or anything until one day I walked in on her changing her clothes and saw the most horrendous marks all over her body – then she broke down crying – I was in total total shock

    The woman to me seemed so strong emotionally for me it was so sad – a really sad sight… I helped her get out of that marriage but the ..erk of a husband started stalking me – eventually i got rid of him but I can now understand why some friends don’t like to get involved because you never know what could happen to you if you try to help

    But real friendships are about helping a friend

    Most likely Mr. Chris Brown’s father, this was not the first time but only the worst time. This was a brutal beating that too many women suffer mostly in silence. We can surely judge him on this incident. Its the one we know about. How dare you tell us that he is ‘concerned about her.’ This was a slip this was a the typical starting small with the abuse, probably telling her to shut up. We note that the longer they stayed together the less we saw of Rihanna on the red carpet. Obviously he was toxic from the start and used his babyface to fool a lot of people. He should get rocked in prison as the punk he is. This is what’s wrong, too many parents making excuses for their criminal and deviant children. FU and F Chris.

    Just Trippin is a joke right? This was not the first time it was the worst time, the time he got caught. Consider you are both expected to appear on the Grammy’s. He’s stupid and dangerous. Any smart abuser would have held off until the Grammy’s were over. You are the one who’s tripping, The problem here is not considering Chris as anything but a convict. Its about Rihanna and a reminder to women that the first time your BOYFRIEND tells you to ‘Shut the FU’ its over because the next time he will raise his hand because your staying with him gives him permission to correct you. Too many of these women don’t realise they cannot fit into a 19th century box. They are world famous and unprecendented women reaching heights only a few queens have reached. If she even forgives him she needs professional help.

    It was not the first time. Again, you are out of order.

    Obviously Chris Brown isn’t speaking out publically because there is a pending legal investigation. The DA still hasn’t filed charges, so he would be stupid for going public and admitting to what he did because it could mean jail time. Then again celebrities don’t go to jail, but this time he hit someone more famous than he is, so he is definitely screwed. The radio stations are already pulling his music, the endorsement deals are gone, his career is pretty much shot.

He makes me sick to see what her face looks like.

    He MUST NOT get away witht his. I hope his future is ruined as he will not/should not ever be looked upon as a normal young R&B Entertainer EVER AGAIN. He needs to take himself his family and elope as far away as possible from this. And if at all possibble try to restart his life over again.

    Rihana……….. STAY WELL AWAY FROM HIM!! HE has shown his TRUE colours. And as for his father in a statement where he should be sending his thoughts out to Rihana and her family is taken the spotlight to ask the public to forgive CHRIS!!! What a complete TWAT!

    Interesting story! Athough I believe we should be spending our time dealing with political issues, jobs, family and the economy instead of mindless Hollywood gossip. But for my two cents…although Rihanna could very well have provoked him….you women have your tempers too…. he shouldn’t have reacted this violently. He definitely deserves some punishment, a huge fine, some jail time, or something else to fit the crime. The exact amounts depending on whether she provoked him. Hopefully it goes to court.

    to Cathy and SweetHoney: It doesn’t matter even if she started the argument. Nobody should get beaten for what they say. They are two young people; of course, they will have arguments. But nobody expects to be brutally beaten for them. And as to injuries he suffered, honey, I don’t see any. The only injuries he has suffered is the endorsements that were taken away from him. And yes, having been a counsellor, that is exactly how abused women behave; it just means she has a severe psychological problem herself, to have forgiven a man who attempted to choke her within a week or days. That is a very severe psychological , low self-esteem problem she has. It doesn’t mean she wasn’t physically abused. It means that she was probably abused sometime in her life and thinks she deserves it and is still looking to the abuser for affection. That’s a problem.

    It´s not right to beat up a women, and it is not an “INDISCRETION” where do these people live???… if it would have “just been an indiscretion” he would have hit her JUST once,because he “may have lost his temper” but not beat her up like that… I can´t accept that.

    Each relationship has two parts to share… and I know from people who work with “little miss sunshine diva that doesn´t care about anyone else” , that she can really be a ***** , but that doesn´t give ANYONE the right to beat her up… beeing a ***** like she is , is a mistake that can be later forgiven, but not something like Chris did…that is not just a mistake because he is young, that shows his “true colors”… ;-)

    Kimmy? Are you out of your mind? If it would have been “just” a snap or a hit…noone would have made such a big deal out of it, but he hit HER with his fists… would you like to be beaten up like that? Well I wouldn´t like it at all…and I don´t think you would like it either…
    He did his mistake, he will pay for it and that´s it. If he would have been innocent he wouldn´t have posted his statement on youtube to tell the people how sorry he is… every man that beats a woman sais the same, every time! and they do it again!!!
    But I understand, you are a fan…
    I don´t like Rihanna private nor on stage and about Chris Brown… I have never listened to a song of him, so I am NOT a fan of none of them… so I don´t really care who was wrong and who wasn´t …
    like I said before, there are always two parts of the story, she will blame him, he will blame her… but the facts remain : he beat her up with his fists several times… and that is a crime, whatever the gender of the person is.
