Chris Brown Apologizes To Rihanna, Fans

Chris Brown has released an official video statement, apologizing to both Rihanna and his fans.

Here’s a snippet of his apology: “Since February, my attorney has advised me not to speak out even though ever since the incident, I wanted to publicly express my deepest regret and accept full responsibility.

“I wish I had the chance to live those few moments again but unfortunately I can’t. I cannot go into what happened and most importantly, I’m not going to sit here and make any excuses. I take great pride in being able to exercise self-control and what I did was inexcusable.

“I have told Rihanna countless times and I’m telling you today that I’m truly, truly sorry and that I wasn’t able to handle the situation both differently and better.”

    A bit late …his rihanna smack down happened in February….


    Kinda late

  • punch line

    Too bad he isnt a girl so I can feel good about Rhianna’s arse being beat!

  • twpumpkin

    The only thing he is sorry about is the fact that this ruined his career. He should have got jail time!

  • Raquel

    Well he at least did the right thing and apologize, i will give props for that.

  • love

    Don’t believe him

  • Pining for Chris

    @punch line: LOL

    He’s a crap actor, this didn’t sound genuine at all. I wonder who wrote the statement for him…

  • Anna

    Hm, will he release a record soon or what is that suppose to be? Pretty cheap, late and transparent act.

  • dddjjj333

    He was obviously reading it off of cue cards, and not once did he actually say that it isn’t okay to hit a woman or anything of the sort. This piece of shit just wants his career back, and this is his attempt at regaining some fans. I won’t ever forgive him.

  • me(:

    umm @#1&2 he saidd he wasnt alowed to speak publicly about the insident so of course it’s late.

  • the_boyfriend

    Because sincere apologies are always read off monitors or cue cards..or maybe he has something in his ear because I’d guess his reading abilitys resemble his pronunciation capabilty..gross how he keeps bringing up his Mother and Church, what an asshole, go away.

  • chadroy

    lol you guys are talent less retards who sit on the computer judging on others while you have no idea how truly sorry someone can be

  • tallyp

    He needs to try being a bit more sincere. It looks and sound like he’s reading from a script. If you want to be an actor you’ll need better training and yes i know he’s done a few movies which again proves my point. Work harder.

    And you can apologize all you want but deep down you are who you are. At least now Rihanna and the public know. The only thing that be satisfactory would be for you to get life in jail. Thats said because therapy is NOT a cure for mental and personality dysfunctions and a quick stint in jail wouldn’t do anything either.

  • stella

    I don’t think I can forgive him. He beat a woman!! And he sits there and asks for forgiveness?!?!? I’m sorry but I have lost all respect I ever had for this man.

  • Eyda

    I would snap rihanna too, leave chris alone hes not a bad gay for doing one mistake…

  • KinsleyKate

    No one cares anymore.
    If Rihanna had played her cards right she could have become even bigger than before instead all we see her do is walk around and exit various athelets hotels. So whatever, in my eyes, they are both very none talented people who got lucky and took their fame forgranted.


  • marissa

    Yea it’s too late and he is not convincing. If you really want forgiveness and people sympathies, then volunteer daily or the battered women’s shelter, donate some of your pity money to them.

    But of course, he will take the “easy way” out. FOOL. Cant stand him and i lost my respect for his a**

  • Jacqueline

    i can care less about both of them, but he has seriously f*cked up his career

  • xoxo


  • kEN

    don’t believe him, he bludgened her

  • nora


  • Nahla

    VERY LATE! But I forgive him since I bet Rihanna is the biggest b!tch in Hollywood

  • Halli

    Too late and who cares

  • taylor

    I believe and we are taught to one was there, to point fingers. I love and forgive Christopher Brown..I love chris and I forgive you…Just don’T MESS with her anymore..Leave Rihanna alone, she’s no good for you.

  • kate

    If he had actually listened to his lawyers and not said anything, I would have believed this belated public apology. But he did say something – remember that vague, bitter video statement he made from Bow Wow’s at-home bowling alley? He sounded angry that people were still punishing him and not at all sorry in that.

  • marie

    a little (well not a little but A LOT) to late
    he should have made this months ago
    this seems so rehearsed, he should have just talked from his heart, it would have been more sincere
    he has lost many fans, including me that he will never regain
    even though rihanna seems like a bitch and a control freak
    it still doesn’t give him the excuse to hit her and beat her up

  • Honey

    Its about time, Chris Brown!

  • marissa


    Im sure you will have a different response if he beat the Hell out of you

  • niki22

    What a completely insincere apology. Not forgiven Chris!!!!! You should have down this months ago.

  • Jennifer

    Except you did comment! Remember that little video with Bow wow whining about your haters??? And today’s apology, didnt feel even the tiniest bit of remorse from him and looked completely staged. Hate this kid! Thank god, Rihanna didnt go back to him! Abusive A%#!

  • ed

    in other words, “please believe this fake act my publicist set up for me so i can have my career back and make more millions off of you”

    he didnt just hit rihanna, he beat the hell outta her…dont care for the girl or her music, but this shit aint right

  • justthinkforamoment

    I do not condone any kind of personal/physical violence. Having said that…just think…what happened between him getting a text and her getting roughed up ? My guess is she went postal on him…physically went at it…and he reacted badly…but then took all the blame…his and hers. If he got the text…it would have been her that was pissed off…and the missing time warp part left out would tell a different story than the end result. They are both very young…and deserve benefit of the doubt. Only the two of them will ever know the truth about what really happened…and only one of them paid the price.

  • Kele

    I really forgive you Chris and i have all the respect for you and always will and i love you chris brown and always will.

  • black beauty

    album must be coming soon huh? why didn’t he apologize june 22?

  • jk

    1 word: bullshit

  • Matt

    Well, it’s a fine statement, the problem is that he’s READING it. His eyes aren’t looking at the camera, they’re looking below at the scroll of the lines he’s reading. His intonation, his inflections, everything about how he is speaking screams I AM READING. Which sucks, because it makes it seem insincere. I’m sure he does regret it, but the way he did it…it just comes across as the words a publicist prepared for him to say. He should’ve tried to be more spontaneous & heartfelt, instead of just going through his script.

  • kae

    He apologized so let it go!!!!!!! He isn’t the first and will not be the last. His career is a long way from over, just watch and see.

  • http://khristi07/20/2009@6:21pm Khristi

    At least he apologized….there’s always room to forgive someone

  • kris

    He said he was sorry
    You can tell he’s sincere about it
    what he did was wrong, but it’s also wrong
    for everyone else to not forgive him
    he can’t change what he’s done but he can try to
    move on from it and learn from what happened.
    People need to learn to forgive sometimes,
    the man made a mistake he’s owning up to it..
    Keeping a grudge and saying he’s not capable of changing
    is wrong. God taught us all to forgive as he forgives us for our sins.

  • http://justjared lololol

    Please tell me he isn’t reading the whole thing .

  • ME

    wow. . . .SO FAKE.

  • Not impressed by JA

    He not only beat Rihanna, he let her insulted by his fans, thrown in the mud like she desrved to be beaten. He made sure that the victim wasn’t victimized but perceived as being a sl*t who deserved everthing coming after her.
    That’s disgusting. I beleive he is now speaking because he wants to clean his public image. If he had some cojones, he would have talk earlier and not mletting the nasty specualations about rihanna being guilty of what was happening to her.

  • anthony

    way too little way too late. He should be in jail.

  • barron797

    Too little too late. Your career is done! You’re finished!

  • cheytown

    if he apologized now, apologized then, it doesnt matter, the fact that he apologized is ( i think) amazing, most celebrities only have publicists that issue statements, he did it himself, and he honetly probably did have to wait due to legal matters, I think it is hard for anyone, no matter who you are to apologize and take ownership for their actions, especially for something as serious as this. Everyone deserves a second chance and I think people should give him the benefit of the doubt, stop being so high and might and recognize that he is human and we all make mistakes.

  • atelier

    stop reading chrisssss

  • Anna

    i can’t help but still love him.
    even though was he did was absolutley terrible and wrong.

  • lakers fan in boston

    who cares, old news
    i didnt even give a shiz in the 1st place
    riri the alien scares the crap outta me
    he’s losing his cred fast as well

  • Annette

    … Still a douche bag!!!!

  • RiRifan

    I hate him. It’s fake!!! It’s so mono-tone and rehearsed.

    Rihanna forever
