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.”

…………….so what does remorseful Chris have to say?

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.

Who has not gotten so drunk
that they could not remember
what they had done the night before,
because they were drunk out of their minds?

Who has not been told:

“Oh, you should have seen the bazaar way that you acted,
lastnight. You were a totally different person. You were so
drunk that you took off all of your clothes and ran
throught the streets, yelling and screaming at the top
of your lungs, and when the cops came, you tried to
fight them.

It happens to everyone, that has no real experience with
alcohol, and can not handle their liquour.

Some teens use to leap off of buildings
in the 60′s and 70′s.

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.

Guys who beat on women will beat on kids, too. Guys who beat on women are always “sorry” after. Always. Sorry doesn’t mean a thing to them. Jail does.

i’m kinda sick of people saying, “don’t judge him” or “you don’t know the side of the story”, first of all, he beat a woman to a point she had to go to a hospital! what don’t you people not getting?! chris brown BEAT THE SH!T OUT OF RIHANNA! you don’t forgive and forget nor say don’t judge him or we are human beings we make mistakes. 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! NO god blessin’ this woman beater. NO woman beater needs blessin’ from DECENT human people. PERIOD!

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

I am only asking,
but WHAT IF….this whole thing was a matter of
a drug deal that went horribly wrong,
and to snitch is a big taboo.

What if …and I am only asking:

What if Rihanna was beaten by someone else,
and was told to say that Chris did it,
but he did not, in fact do it???

Is Chris taking the blame for someone else???

Just asking!! Calm down.

he is not remorseful. he is just scared out of his pants that he will be going to jail. those saying rihanna isn’t a nice person, hey, he could always break up with her. maybe she threw the car keys out because he was driving erractically and she didn’t want them to get into a wreck. innocent people die all the time from being hit by drunk drivers. i hope he serves maximum time for his “mistake”.

how can anyone even compare smoking a bong to beating a woman up??????? snoop has been caught with illegal drugs many times, it didn’t even come close to hurting his career. this is not a black or white issue.

Mabey you should all stop gossiping untill you know exactly what happened and why he would do such a thing.[:

iwanthimdead @ 02/14/2009 at 10:16 am

he would have denied it all the way if it weren’t for witnesses.thank you god for witnesses. no woman deserves to be hit, EVER!!!!!!

Anon 15 is right. Also , those who want to bring race intothos, get off it. This is not racial. Black entertainers and othe rBlacks might want togo that way, but this is not racial. Chris had it all and is blessed, gifted, but he gave it all away. This is clearly an anger thing.

iwanthimdead @ 02/14/2009 at 10:33 am

for those people who think the media is making this a big deal because chris brown is black, just imagine if it were one of the jonas brothers who beat a girlfriend and tried choking her to death. it would go absolutely ballistic. every endorsement deal would be dropped before they could even blink.

Just like a coward will do, let other people speak for him.

Say what you want Brown fans, ridiculous things like Rihanna deseve it and she started and s h i t, but after this, he will always will be the WOMEN BEATER.

BS!
yes ppl makes mistakes…
but not everyone beats on a defenseless woman…
CB, who i hate s much i wont even take the time to spell out his name, IS NOTHING BUT A CHILD WITH A TEMPER!

ps jarded, take his ugly mug off of here… we all know what he looks like…we just dont want to reminded of how much of douche he is…

This is something that should affect him. This isn’t like he got caught smoking. What he did, directly affected someone else. there was no excuse in this, no matter what she said or did. There is no excuse for a man to hit a woman. i have lost total respect for Chris. I loved his music, now I just think he’s a creep.

hahaha, he is in the Urban Dictionary already, WOMAN BEATER=Chris Brown

okay we know that we all make mistakes..but seriously come on..hitting a girl though?
WOW CHRIS.
i love how all your songs are like about treating a girl right and being a gentleman but then u guy and hit a girl…
i mean i still love your music and everythinggg
but wowwwwww

something was up tat whole relationship! like Rihanna is saying that wasnt the first time he attacked her!and she had a scratched cornea and had to perform with an eye patch a few times! hmmm….what could scratch her cornea!

what about j-zay calling chris brown a walking deadman? or was that just made up by the media?

elanenergy @ 02/14/2009 at 11:10 am

#12 Erica—you really think C Brown’s sponsors left him because he’s black!!???? Are you insane. They left him because he assaulted a woman. Have you not noticed that Michael Phelps, who merely smoked POT, also lost many endorsements???? This IS NOT A RACE ISSUE. Please, don’t make this worse than it is.

shaCHEER11 @ 02/14/2009 at 11:19 am

what michael phelps did and what chris brown did are two way different things. what phelps did hurt himself and maybe some of the people invloved. yes he lost endorsements but he apologized, twice if im not mistaken. he is taking it like a man and taking the consequences. chris hasnt even come forth to apologize. he is having people talk for him. come on chris be a man and take responsibility. i am ashamed that chris has to use violence to end an argument. i was a teen fan girl of chris but i am now embarrassed to be. never to end an arguement ue violence, especially hitting a woman. yes, the situation does go vice versa. i have lost respect for him even if he becomes a man and takes responsibilty.

I feel for Chris However it is Always not right to hit a lady!!

If he can avoid prison, then that would be a first step. Obv if he is jailed it will derail his career and make it that more difficult to come back. But he is very talented and will likely get more chances and will make good music in the future. Heck, he had the number one song in the country last year so he has many more hits left.
