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.”

    Why the hell is does everyone in his family have something to say, but the guy can’t give out a statement and speak for himself?

    I have lost all respect for this man, violence is never ever acceptable, especially in a relationship.

    Sweet Jesus, so what if Rihanna started the argument?? That is no excuse to EVER lay a finger on a woman.

    I am addressing you #30. Maybe where you come from it’s OK to man-handle a woman but it’s a felony where I come from. Ever hear of assault and battery?

    Yeah, she started the argument so she deserves what she got–bullsheet!!!!!!!

    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!

    wel sed. chris is paying the price and everybody knows that. hopefully he can move past this as a smarter, wiser and more mature person. i’m seriously over this story now, its just getting really tiring =\

    He’s a teenager, hopefully he can learn from this. It’s not like he’s a 45 year old man set in his ways. I think this is a wake up call for him. I do think people should lay off and let our judicial system do their job since they are the ones with information and the public knows nothing.

    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.

    sorry dude but daddy worries that son lose his money RiRi need to sue him to show the whole world that women are protected against abuse by law . she can’t let him get out of it as if nothing happened that would be a very bad example for her fans . no matter what he needs to pay for it

    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.

    i kind`a feel bad for chris, he’s getting in trouble for something that all men do.
    sometimes when a bish acts up – you gotta smack her down… those are the rules (man-law). hahahahahaha

    “We all have our shortcomings” – WHAT? Beating your girlfriend to a pulp is not a “shortcoming” – it’s repulsive behavior and a CRIME!

    Looks like Ol’ Dad is trying to make excuses for his son. Despicable.

    Someone could have slipped something in his drink.
    Some mind altering re-action to prescription drugs,
    like diet pills, wine, and anphetamenes!!

    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?

    Erin Says:

    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.

  23. 73
    Erin Says:

    Oh everyone needs to stop making excuses.
    Did Chris really beat Rihanna that bad?
    Probably not. For all we know she could mild scratches and such and everyone is out to make it seem like big bruises everywhere.

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

    ^^ Hey sweethoney dont stick up for him, it was NOT his first time doing this to a girl. He is a loser and he should be dropped from his label, and anyone who he is a spokesperson for. WHO CARES if this moron is remorseful!!! His career is OVER because no one likes a woman beater. What a PUNK to pick on a woman. Cant he pick on someone his own size, or is he too much of a puss to do so??? LOSER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
