Gayle King Rejects Chris Brown's Apology

Gayle King Rejects Chris Brown's Apology

Gayle King, aka Oprah‘s BFF, has rejected Chris Brown‘s apology.

She tells Extra, “Right now I can’t think of anything that makes me support anything that Chris Brown is saying at this time. And my heart just aches for Rihanna.”

Gabrielle Union adds, “I know them both. Unfortunately, no one knows all the facts yet…What I think is great about this unfortunate situation is it can get us talking about violence…Violence is never the answer. It’s good to get that dialogue started. I wish this wasn’t the catalyst for that…It’s never good to use violence as a means to an end.”

Akon encouraged Rihanna: “Keep doing what you’re doing baby. Keep things positive! She’s a strong woman. I think she’ll get through it….”

Dollhouse star Eliza Dushku gave her two cents, saying, “Any way, shape or form of domestic violence is inexcusable in my book.”

    YOUR HEART ACHES FOR RIHANNA. THAT BITCH IS FINER THAN FINE. SOAKING UP THE SUN . NO PROBLEMS THERE. HAS GAYLE
    SEEN HER. TALKED TO HER. EVEN KNOWS THE TRUTH. OR IS THIS THE MOST CRAP IN THE TOLIET. SHE SHOULD BE BILLED
    AT LEAST FOR THIS FAKE PUBLICITY.!

  • imaginaque

    I don’t know Chris Brown or Rihanna, but violence of any kind, whatever the reason, is absolutely unacceptable. Period.

  • FEB UP RIHANNA’S FAKE ACCIDENT

    RIHANNA IS FINE SOAKING UP THE SUN. NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. LET’S GET SOMEONE THAT WAS WITH HER AT THE TIME
    OF THE INCIDENT. SHALL WE. CERTAINLY NOT HER DADDY
    PEOPLE MAG LIED ABOUT THAT. SINCE THIS IS ALL FAKE PUBLICITY. LET’S BILL HER FOR WASTING TIME.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    …her and EVERYONE else who who knows it’s pr bullshīt. hahahahaha

  • rAQUEL

    Who the hell cares what this woman thinks or doesn’t think? Her only claim to fame is sleeping with Okra!

  • Maria

    AMEN! TO GAYLE KING! I’m with her. I also agree with Eliza Dushku. whatever it might have been “transpired ” between he and Rihanna the point is he fled the scene while Rihanna was left behind with injuries, however minor or serious it was. Violence of any kind is unacceptable.

    I don’t support a woman beater, therefore I don’t support Chris Brown’s music.

  • bmx

    Gail you have man issues-you are as interesting as dirt-

  • Smart evil bi*tch that Riri is

    I agree with you “FEB UP RIHANNA’S FAKE ACCIDENT”! it’s like all this was all planned or something, she surely did it to get some attention and lots of publicity…..I mean, some people around me that never really liked her as a “singer” now listen to her songs!!!! sing them!! wtf! props to her……miss “poor victim of Chris the woman beater”. I’d loathe her if I were Chris, I guess that’s why he never answered her all day calls afterwards…she knows it was her entire fault. Aaah, sorry, she’s the victim of the month

  • carol

    no matter what, any man that puts his hands on any woman is a poor excuss of a man…that’s it, Chris Brown has lost me as a fan and I lost any respect for any one who wants to “defend” him. There’s NO excuss. He is bad news in my opionin. And as soon as we as A PEOPLE GET THAT STRIGHT, HE WILL GO AWAY.

  • http://www.celebrityfeet4.us/ oscar

    he can apologize all he wants and say he is taking council with anyone he wants, but he is totally screwed and maybe he should’ve thought about that if thats what it would have taken for him to not be a punk.

    as for the moron who says this is fake publicity? puh-lease. take it to a wife beatering forum. it aint gonna fly here.

  • JGP

    Who cares what Gayle thinks?

    This whole Rihanna victim spiel is getting tired fast

  • truvy

    These celebs should say no comment. They don’t know the details yet, when it’s definitive that he beat her up and that it’s clear cut. Then maybe saying something about domestic violence, but otherwise it is just stupid.

  • lalal

    its so annoying how these random celebrities keep giving their opinion, when tbh it has nothing to do with them and they probably don’t even know either of them.
    this happens to millions of people everyones just being sympathetic to rihanna because shes in the public eye, she’s an idiot.
    i know violence is inexcusable, and i’m in no way condoning it, i just hate how all these random celebrities are like “chris brown is ____” “chris brown is a dead man” and whatnot, fgs just shutup and keep your noses out of the situation, rihanna is an idiot herself anyway.

  • FEB UP RIHANNA’S FAKE ACCIDENT

    Chris Brown did not say anything about a beating! or that is what the
    cop would of said. That he is charged with physical abuse. NOT
    ENOUGH EVIDENCE IS WHAT THE COP SAID. THE MEDIA HAS
    OTHER IDEAS DON’T YOU. TWO THUGS THAT NO ONE CARES
    ABOUT EXCEPT YOU BLACK PEOPLE. OF COURSE HE DID IT
    BECAUSE THE MEDIA SAYS SO. PAY YOU DAMN BILL RIHANNA
    AND CHRIS THE WORLD DIFFENTLY KNOWS WHO YOU ARE
    SHE IS A COWARD AND WON’T COME OUT AND TALK ABOUT
    ABUSE.AND SHOW THE WORLD HER BRUISES.

  • tatum

    FEB UP RIHANNA’S FAKE ACCIDENT I hope a guy beats the shit out of you next. Loser as Chris Brown fan. The boy is a woman beater and he needs to go to jail. Cant wait for him to get whats coming to him!

  • mike

    i dont even care

  • Maria

    @ FEB UP RIHANNA’S FAKE ACCIDENT = his lame ass apology may not have mentioned a beating nor Rihanna but his own father already verify it and Rihanna’s father confirmed it. Not to mention Jay-Z who angrily went public with his disdain for Chris Brown.

  • Honey

    Nobody knows what really happened so Gayle needs to shut her stupid ass up plus they no proof that Rihanna’s face is messed up cuz we still havent seen any real pics yet the only pic on the web is the one that was photoshopped!!!

  • sos

    I hope this story dies sooooooon cause its fuckin annoying..no one knows exactly whats up ! the media is just in love with this story cause they can print anything they want cause people will actually believe it.

  • Petey

    You told Harpo to beat me!

  • alias101

    im sorry, can some please tell me why the hell her opinion matters??

  • http://www.blackplanet.com/kewlbabe1 Nicole

    who asked for her opinion anyway?

  • Shakira

    Chris, you did the crime, now do the time.

  • danny

    Don’t be such a jerk. Why, I mean WHY would be this FAKE PUBLICITY? For Rihanna, SURE. But WHYYYYY Chris Brown would agree with this? He just lost A LOT of fans, money, crediblity (MAINLY in music industry) and propabily gained hate from top influent people in his area, like Jay-Z, Justin, Timbaland, T.I., Kanye and so many others, all of them are friends of Rihanna. So what? She PAID CHRIS piles of money for he to agree ruin his own career for publicity for her? That’s why I don’t like dumb people on internet. Urgh.

  • FEB UP RIHANNA’S FAKE ACCIDENT

    DUH YOU JUST DON’T GET IT DO YOU. IN THE END THERE WON’T BE ANY PROBLEMS. SO WHAT . SICK OF THIS FAKE PUBLICITY.

    HE IS NOT GOING TO RUIN HIS CAREER DID KOBE BRYANT LOSE
    HIS AFTER HE RAPED A WOMAN IN A HOTEL. NO HE IS STILL IN
    THE COURT.

    EITHER SHOW US THE PROOF BY PICTURES OF HER OR SHUT UP
    ABOUT IT. IT IS GETTING TO BE YESTERDAYS NEWS. NO ARREST
    NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE .. GET IT.

  • lakers fan in boston

    i barely no who the fuck gayle is
    and once again…..another chris brown post….

  • RIHANNA’S CRAPPING AGAIN

    Her own father said THAT HE HAS NOT SEEN HER SINCE LAST JULY
    AND THAT PEOPLE MAGAZINE LIED . SO GETOVER YOURSELVES.

  • Kiri

    May all of you who stand-up for this man and judge a beautiful young woman who was maliciously beaten and bitten by a low-life male animal, meet your karmic fate in a dark alley so you come to your God-given senses!

    Gayle King would not be speaking out on behalf of women if she didn’t have some facts from this case.

    No man or woman (white, black, brown, red, yellow, or purple) should lose their senses and ability to control internal anger to the point of inflicting such violence on another human and, especially, a woman. You all have grown-up with violence to be tolerating it as you do. All of the supporters of Brown need to enter anger management and psychotherapy along with him.

    This young woman deserves a mature relationship that doesn’t provoke jealousy on her part and one where her physical or psychological wellbeing is ever threatened again! No man or woman is worth getting jealous over.

  • danny

    There won’t be any problems? You’re are like…. 14?
    AND Kobre Bryant? REALLY? Comparing them two? HAHAHAHA

    And don’t even start with this crap “Show me the proofs blablabla” I don’t work at TMZ. And if you don’t like to read about it why do you bother to coment in this post?

    xoxo

  • If I were you,I’d kill myself

    I feel bad for Chris. not that much for Rihanna since she has the “victim” image….most celebs are for her and will support her like most of the rest of the world. People will always defend her. She’s the poor little sheep. Chris, on the other hand………good luck. that’s the only thing I can say. I’m against violence yet I like his music and think he’s one of the best entertainers out there but true that what he did is unforgivable. I truly feel sorry for him. Why on earth did he do that? I wanna know……..there’s must be a |good| reason….hopefully I’ll get to know the truth someday…

  • Andy

    I agree with Eliza

  • Danielle

    In the end, what we all say is inexcusable in our books doesn’t mean shit. If Rihanna wants to forgive Chris, or if she doesn’t is her business. Every one has something to say about what happened except the right people. What CB did was wrong, but he doesn’t owe anyone a damn apology except rihanna. So everyone (celebs included) need to wait untill we hear the whole story. No one knows what happened except CB and rihanna, but most of you guys are judging as if you we’re there your self.
    That’s ridiculous!

  • Blah Blah Blah

    Yesterday it was Will Smith and Jay Z, today it is Gail King. Tomorrow it will be the Reverend Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, or Nick Cannon. Everyone knows it was bad; celebrities jumping up to get some publicity does NOT help the situation. Rihanna needs to speak out against domestic violence and NOT take the scumbag back.

  • kiki

    Whatever happened to forgiveness?

    I think what Chris brown did was wrong and he should have to pay the consequences for it and get help. But as far as we know it is his first offense he should be taught on how to treat a women and not hit her, and not be told on how ‘bad’ he is.
    What he did was wrong but one mistake should not determine what kind of person he is.

  • RIHANNA’S CRAPPING AGAIN

    It is great how it keeps gettin better. first it was a scratch on her face and now it is a beat down. How the hell do you know that!

    No one needs to make fun of physical violence like this. He is just out on bail not charge with anything wasting everyones time. One time
    boy. She went to the hospital with out a scratch on her. That is when
    this story got boring. So let’s escalate it shall we why not leave her
    on the side of road roll her down a hill . And that is where they found
    her. Don’t bother just let it go the POLICE DID SO WHY NOT YOU
    PEOPLE ON THE COMMENT PAGE.

  • http://blog.allthingsea.com Edden

    Until Rihanna speaks this whole situation needs to stop. I want FACTS!

  • RIHANNA’S CRAPPING AGAIN

    It was a one time thing .. and it is time to put this story to rest now.
    Neither one is going to do anything about it. NO CHARGES ARE
    DUE TO LACK OF EVIDENCE. WOW WHAT MAKES YOU THINK
    THAT IT IS ALRIGHT TO RUIN A MAN’S CAREER OVER SOMETHING
    LIKE THIS IT IS WORSE THAN WHAT HAPPENED TO RIHANNA.
    SO SICK OF HEARING FAKE STORIES. NOW THE STORY IS THAT
    HE ROLLED HER DOWN A HILL AND LEFT HER THERE AND
    LEFT.

  • blackberry

    the media will not let this go until chris until is punished or we see pics of rihanna

  • Shaun

    I reject Chris Brown’s apology also. It’s just to cover his own ass. I don’t feel that he is really all that remorseful.

  • Danielle

    Shaun who cares if you reject an apology, did he hit you? No, he doesn’t owe you any damn apology therefore, you have nothing to regret. Get over yourself. People think they have a right to reject an apology that has shit to do with them. Please. Get real.

  • Danielle

    Shaun who cares if you reject an apology, did he hit you? No, he doesn’t owe you any damn apology therefore, you have nothing to regret. Get over yourself. People think they have a right to reject an apology that has shit to do with them. Please. Get real.

  • Danielle

    Shaun who cares if you reject his apology. He doesn’t owe you an apology, therefore you have nothing to reject.
    Goodness people are ridiculous CB may/may not have hit rihanna and people who have squat to do with the altercation have the gall to say they reject his apology. Get over yourself sweetheart.

  • fedup.

    enough already . . get a life people . what happened is none of our business it;s not like well ever know the true story anyway so why bother caring so much about someone elses drama .

  • danny

    Fedup, you’re just caring so much about us. :)

  • YAWN

    IM SO DAMN TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT THIS STORY.

    AND I’M SO TIRED OF THE GANGING UP ON CHRIS BROWN, EVEN THOUGH I CAN’T STAND HIS MUSIC.

    IT WAS A HORRIBLE THING FOR HIM TO DO BUT JESUS, GET OVER IT. WHAT DO YOU WANT HIM TO DO, KILL HIMSELF? HE’S A HUMAN AND HE FUCKED. LET HIM DEAL WITH IT ON HIS OWN.

    DO YOU ALL THINK IT’S OK FOR A MAN TO HIT MAN? VIOLENCE IS ALL HORRIBLE. STUPID IDIOTS.

    AND WHO GIVES A FUCK WHAT GAILE KING THINKS????

  • FED UP

    I AM SO SICK OF HEARING ABOUT THIS STORY!NOBODY KNOWS THE FACTS NOTHING CHANGES BUT EACH DAY IT IS STILL IN THE HEADLINES.NONE OF THE CELEBS SHOULD BE SPEAKING OUT ABOUT BECAUSE EACH ONE IS SAYING EVEN THOUGH WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS NOT THE ANSWER.IF YOU JUST SAID YOU DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED WHY WOULD YOU EVEN SPEAK ABOUT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FOR THAT SITUATION.AND EVEN IF IT DID HAPPEN IT IS NOBODY ELSES BUSINESS BUT CHRIS BROWN AND RIHANNA AND YOU WOULD THINK OTHER CELEBS WOULD RESPECT THAT BECAUSE THEY KNOW HOW IT FEELS FOR THEIR PRIVACY TO NOT BE RESPECTED

  • FED UP

    AND EVERYONE SHOULD ALSO REALIZE PEOPLE ARE HUMAN AND ARE MEANT TO MAKE MISTAKES.AND PEOPLE GROW FROM MISTAKES BY FIXING AND REALIZING THE MISTAKE ON THEIR OWN

  • glow

    Who is she to reject his apology?
    I know what he did was wrong…but once again..who is she to accept or reject his apology.

    Hoe sit down!

  • Nic

    I think every one is speculating on the matter..Yes Ri got her A** whopped because of heated argument .i don’t think any one in there right mind ..Know what happened in that car..It was an argument that escalated into Violence..So simply blame Chri B is crazy and so too RI…It was a fight..It was an argument..Shoulda ..coulda..Woulda..Yada yada..Well some wants to make Chris the villan of the story..Maybe understanding the problem or rather the incident is easier for people to comprehend..So they choose sides..For me..He is just a Young man..A human being with flaws like all of us..
    When we are angry we lash out..We do and say things to hurt the other person.That is what a fight is..
    As young as these 2 are they didn’t have the intelligence to walk away form each other when it escalated…He could have walked away …So did she.But it is what is it..
    Haven’t we all want to beat the crap out os someone at one time or another..lol..But for most of us we can control that urge..Others can’t..I am not giving them an excuse..So is life!!
    The truth is He will give his version of the truth and So will she..And somewhere in between is the real truth!!
    I don’t ask why..He was angry!!
    He was pissed..all i can say is it is a good thing he didn’t kill her…I don’t think he would have forgiven himself!!!
    He is young..And i am sure 5 or 10yrs from now he will be like WTF!!
    What the hell did i do!!
    Hopefully he will learn from this incident and move on to a brighter future!!

  • hypocrites

    oh c’mon woman…..first of all no human in this planet can accept any kind of violence towards them. period.
    but who are we kidding…women like gayle..rihanna…and many others out there are totally independent & strong..we tell ourselves we can be as good as the guys..and we wanna play like guys…so…we have to take it like a guy too…who are we to fool that we, women…do hit the men too whenever we are in a heated argument…..because we feel we are strong and not gonna go down easily to a man, rite?so don’t cry like a girl when we are as strong as a man….just walked out and rihanna, this is why we don’t mix business with pleasure….
