Letter From Chris Brown’s Mom, Joyce Hawkins

“I just want to say from the bottom of my heart thank you for your continued support. I’m sorry I wasn’t allowed to speak to anyone as this case was on going. I can now say this has been the most painful moment in my entire life, but knowing that you were still standing by Chris side in his time of need made this a little easier for us. Because of all your prayers God brought him through. I just want to say God has never failed me and never will. All moms and dads please stand by your children and pray for their goodness each and everyday. Chris and I love you so much, as the tears fall from my eyes and the pain lingers in my heart I still say thank you God, thank you thank you almighty God. If any of you wonder why I continue to speak of God it’s because I know no other way. I made a promise to him I would never be ashamed of him no matter where I am or who I talk to. You see this whole thing isn’t about Chris it’s about God. He wants to show all of you the goodness of him through Chris. Chris will be addressing all of his fans very soon. We love you so much and so does God. Thank you.”

    1st comment woohho I LOVE U CHRIS BROWN! MARRY ME!
    ME AND 50 OF MY CLOSEST FRIENDS DECIDED WHEN UR ALBUM DROPS WELL BUY 5 COPPIES EACH

  • TABOO

    I have a feeling that nothing will be revealed. He will not throw Rhianna under the bus. They still have feelings-He’s writing songs, she’s trying to get the restraining order removed. They both need counseling. Both have been violent. Hopefully, they can both move forward and make great music. That is all they owe us. Whether they get back together is their personal business, let them live their life. It’s their choice, not ours.

  • erica

    Of course Brown will say he’s sorry over and over again. After all he is trying to save his career!

    I think that the best part of the sentence for Brown was to get him into a year long counselling program for anger control where he will be counselled on a weekly basis.

    What he did was very wrong, but if he realizes he has a problem with controlling his rage against women, maybe it’s possible for therapy to work. I still think he got off easy, but at least they are forcing him into therapy and making him do community work…it’s not that much, but it’s something.

  • Daniella

    I agree with Taboo. But who was supporting him?

  • TABOO

    I also think it is great that his mom stands by him. I think that is Rhianna’s problem, she does not have her family with her. That’s why she always looks so sad and lost, no one to truly trust. That’s who she can truly trust. Everyone around you speaking in your ear does not always have your best interest at heart.

  • me(:

    I love him && his mom. I’m glad he’s moving forward. I don’t care what the haters say. I’m definately going to buy his album when it drops. Stay strong Chris. We love you!

  • lindsay

    TABOO———–> that’s not true they live in barbados but she talks to her family every day and her brothers and family are with her right now in new york city

  • april

    I don’t feel any sympathy for him. If Rihanna would’ve never made this incident public, do you think he would’ve apologized? No. This would’ve been swept under the rug just like their other violent episodes with each other. It really bothers me that people only apologize once they get caught. Do you think Chris would’ve came forward on his own and said, “I beat up Rihanna and I’m sorry” if she never involved the authorities. Hell no! He’s pathetic and the people who support him are stupid. By supporting him, you’re condoning the behavior. Neither him or Rihanna are innocent in this. But Chris crossed the line. It’s one thing to slap someone, but to beat the hell out of someone and choke them to where they can’t breathe. There’s no damn excuse for that!

  • marissa

    larry wont buried him. it will be a weak plea for forgiveness and blah , blah blah.

    this boydont need a second chance at a career, he needs a spiritual retreat and time to himself!!!

    not no interview with a 100 year old man who will let him off easy.

    pathetic asshole

  • marissa

    @april:

    THIS IS THE BEST COMMENT I SEEN IN A LONG WHILE!!

    exactly my point

  • april

    @marissa:

    Thank you Melissa! I honestly don’t see why people support him. So it’s OK to beat the hell out of someone and almost strangle them to the death, and then apologize when you get caught? Because that’s exactly what he did. And he allegedly reacted this way over a text message? Wow. He’s a true coward in my eyes and if he was my son, I would’ve disowned him for this. I also think the judge let him off easy. He should’ve served time.

  • april

    @marissa:

    Sorry, I meant “Marissa”. :)

  • brit

    he’s trying to change his image, so does his mother. i think if she wrote somethn about rihanna, that she (also) feels sorry bout rihanna instead of chris, i would believe somethn of what she says. always blame god and saying something about god and thank him for this n that makes it so unbelievable.
    thats my opinion..

  • brit

    oh and never forget, he is NOT the victim in this case..
    maybe i’ll change my mind bout him after seeing the interview, but what his mother said,..pffffft

  • christine

    MY GOD…. I DONT CARE WHO STARTED IT… FOR WHATEVER REASON… A MAN SHOULD NEVER EVER TOUCH A FEMALE IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM, THAT IS MALICE.

    AND I DONT CARE IF CHRIS’ MOTHER IS CRYING!

    I WAS ASSAULTED BY A COLLEGE STUDENT IN MY APARTMENT BUILDING A FEW YEARS AGO ONCE . AND HE GOT OFF SCOTT FREE! I WAS COMPLETELY BLOODIED & BRUISED UP.

    BECAUSE HIS COLLEGE WAS BRINGING MONEY TO THE TOWN… THE POLICE DID EVERYTHING TO PROTECT HIM IN ORDER NOT TO TARNISH THE COLLEGE’S REPUTATION… AND THAT COLLEGE IS WELL-KNOWN FOR IT’S TROUBLEMAKERS… ONE OF THE WORST COLLEGES IN DOWNSTATE NEW YORK! THIS HAPPENED WHILE JEANINE PIRRO WAS DISTRICT ATTORNEY. HER DAs DEFENDED THE BOY BASED ON THE BOY’S ROOMMATE’S FALSE WITNESS TESTIMONY.

    IF P.DIDY’S MOTHER, DAUGHTER OR SISTER WAS ATTACKED LIKE THIS… WOULD HE HAVE PROTECTED CHRIS BROWN LIKE HE DID???

    WOULD ANY OF U?

    I JUST DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS JUSTICE SYSTEM.

  • Tealeaf

    He is MORE violent then Rihanna, and needs help. Rihanna was never found gulity of punching, choking him or anyone else. I bet Mark will do all the talking and he will be biting his lips

  • Steph

    You guys are unbelievable. I bet if this was rihanna in his shoes, everyone would probably laugh at him for getting beat up by a girl. Come on be real, if you’re big enough to hit and fight someone then expect to get hit back because I’m not just gonna let someone hit all on me. Bottom line man or women keep your hands to yourself. I still support chris and always will.

  • christine

    FIRST OF ALL…TO CHRIS’ MOM…….. GOD WOULD HAVE WANTED ACCOUNATBILITY! GOD WOULD HAVE WANTED CHRIS TO BE PUNISHED IN A WAY THAT WOULD LET EVRY1 C THAT PPL CANNOT GET AWAY WITH THIS. OTHERWISE, IT BECOMES A CYCLE.

    IT WASN’T GOD, LADY. IT WAS THE DEVIL ITSELF. JUST LIKE OJ SIMPSON ENDED UP IN JAIL IN THE END… THE DEVIL HAS TRICKED YOUR SON INTO A LIFE OF MISERY……

    FORGIVENESS IS ONE THING. ACCOUNTABILITY IS ANOTHER.

  • anon

    Let your actions speak louder than your (pre-scripted, well practiced) words Chris. Show people you are sincere and will get the help you need to NEVER lay a hand on a woman again. Let your actions match your words …it’s called integrity.

  • Tealeaf

    # In the police report…Rihanna didn’t hit Chris, so what the heck are you talking about, Chris did all the hitting and he plead gulity to everything Rihanna said he did. The person doing the hitting and the fighting was the Guy who punched, choked and bited a girl then ran off when the cops came. So by your lame comment, Rihanna didn’t deserve anything because she didn’t hit. I wish his stupid fan would stop trying to justify this angry woman beating sucker, if it wasn’t Rihanna it would of been another GIRL.

  • anon

    @christine: Well said. Compassion shouldnt not preclude accountability. All adults are responsible for the management of their own words and actions and the outcome of them.

  • anon

    All real men are gentlemen and walk away before resorting to violence unless it’s life and death.

  • anon

    @Steph: Abuse is abuse. If you dont see his behavior for what it is…beating someone he loved black and blue and almost chocking her death repeating a cycle of abuse in his family then you need help. No woman or person with any true self-respect would see this as OK in anyway. What if this was your daughter or sister or mother you loved dearly…and you were forced to watch and sit by them in the hospital would you feel the same?

  • anon

    @brit: He may have been a victim when he was a child and grew up watching it but he is now an adult and can choose to do and be different.

  • marissa

    @april:

    you are the best :) your comments is why i come on JJ. finally someone who got some sense!

  • nauji

    @Steph: thank u edleast some guy has sense…this is sexist woman need to stop being hoes n learn to defend them sleves!!! if ur gonna put ur hands on a guy b ready 2 defend urself cuz some r crazy enough 2 hit u bac!!!!Ladies stop acting crzy…stop provoking a fight cyz u think he wont hit u ….MAN UP ALREADY n quit being little girls 4 crist sake!!! U cant talk the talk n not walk the walk!! if u no he has a problem or kinda hurt u b4 y provoke him. The worst thing u can do in a heated argument is put ur hands on sumone either guy or girl…once u gt goin u dnt stop!!! heres prove right here!!! example # 1

    Rihanna isn’t as innocent as everyone thinks. Read the stories about her. She smashed a glass in her brother’s face 2 years ago, she slaps Chris and shouts. No, a man shouldn’t hit a woman but is she ok to constantly wind him up? Violence is wrong full stop but I certainly don’t think she is as innocent as you all think, if she was, she would have spoken up – she’s not the shy type. If she believed it was truly, 100% Chris’ fault then she would have gone in that court room and completely slated him but she didn’t because she knows she has a part to play in the whole thing. This is between them, not you or I so I don’t understand why you all believe that you know what is right. Has anyone heard Chris’s side of the story from that night? I actually liek Rihanna but you only have to look at her face to know that she seems moody and bitchy, she has never been the friendliest person and I am talking about since she has been around. I think people need to let him serve his 5 years probation and do all the things required of him and let it go. IF he ever did it again, which I don’t think he will, then yeah, sure, shout him down but for now leave him be.

  • http://www.entrid.com Nya

    @april: You are so right ,.This was my question all along why now. I sure his other was well aware of his anger issues, I heard on lady on a florida hotel called the police one day for a disturbance in the room next toher . When the police cam the found out that Chris was trowing dishes at his mother , tye had a disagreement and he got angry and kick a fit.Rihanna I’m told from my people got kick out of Hotel in barbados for her rude behavior, then the same happened at her cousin’s wedding.My Question whre are their parents when all of this was happening. She only turn 21 recently , he’s still under 21 . If Britney’s parent did an intervention so could their parents don’t wait till the shit hits the fan and then cry foul on the other party involved.

  • Tealeaf

    No Rihanna isn’t perfect, but you can’t compare a slap with punching, choking etc.. and Chris had his chance in court to tell his side, I think his side is what Rihanna said happen, he beat her and then ran off when the police came. It’s seems SO hard for his fans to accept the fact that Chris is violent, there is no proof that Rihanna hit him on Feb.8, but there is plenty of Evidence that he hit her, more then once. His fanatics pray that she hit him without evidence, just for any notion that their precious Chris is not a heartless abuser. IF you want to talk about Rihanna past hitting her brother, let’s talk about Chris past fights and him throwning Dishes at his OWN mother.Why wouldn’t Rihanna had told the police if she had hit Chris on Feb, she admitted to slapping him before.

  • Kee

    STFU you stupid Chris Brown fans. Your just siding with him because You guys think he’s fine. Face it, your idol is a woman beater!!!!!

    Rihanna, if she did hit him, is a what…? 110 lbs woman and Chris Brown should of been a man and walked away. But he didn’t, he used his strength to hit her not one, but multiple times. Chris Brown is a low life coward… ALL you Chris Brown fans are STUPID just like him!

    GO ahead condone his actions, exactly like your condoning domestic abuse… GOOD FOR YOU GUYS!

  • http://tmz steph123

    I’m certainly not condoning it. I don’t like violence full stop. They both have anger issues that need to be sorted, if we looked into all of it they both seem to have anger streaks in them. we don’t actually know that there is no evidence that Rihanna hit him on that night in February – we just don’t know either way. she has clearly let it go and Chris has been sentenced – whether you think he should have got more or not – it’s all over and people need to let it go, Rihanna clearly doesn’t want to talk about it so why are you all so worked up about him, it isn’t going to change anything?

  • http://www.entrid.com Nya

    Can someone tell his mother , if god had anythiong to do with that night , he would have got out the car an left her kicking a fit by herself . Instead he choose to beat the crap out of her, he would not have left her he would of stick around and at least drove her to the hospital or something not run .God was there alright cause Rihanna is still alive after he did the damage and run.

  • april

    @Tealeaf:

    Tealeaf, I completely agree. Everyone is saying, “Oh what about his side of the story?” His side IS her side. He went to court and PLEADED GUILTY! When you plead guilty, that means you’re admitting that what you’re being accused of is TRUE. I feel sorry for these young girls today who are actually supporting him. They think it was OK to do what he did to Rihanna and she some how “asked for it” or “provoked him”. According to the reports and the details said in court, RIHANNA DID NOT TOUCH HIM. She defended herself. So now what? What’s your reason now? I swear, his supporters are so stupid. It makes me wonder if any of them have morals. They probably don’t even know what they are.

  • april

    @Nya:

    Nya, Chris’ mom’s comments are ridiculous. “God He wants to show all of you the goodness of him through Chris.” Is she serious? I think she means “the wrath of God” because Chris unleashed that on Rihanna that night.

  • http://www.entrid.com Nya

    Look into both their eyes people they both have evil streaks. The fight was round 1 , This interview is just the begining of round 2, he ‘s not going to let her get away that easily. This is far from over , His lawyer is as dirty as they come. Listen carefully people, he started off by saying he wanted to plead guilty right away but his lawyer won’t let him. This is not the sign of a person that’s truly sorry for what he did , he wants his good image,money and career back.Especially if he believes in his crazy mind that it’s all her fault.

  • http://www.entrid.com Nya

    @april: Your are so right .

    DON’T MAKE THIS ABOUT GOD, CRAZY LADY. IT’S ABOUT YOUR IRRESPONSIBLE, WOMAN-BEATING SON!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.entrid.com Nya

    @Steph: WHERE DID IT SAY THAT SHE HIT HIM FIRST ON THE NIGHT OF FEB 8?. ALL I HEARD WAS THE SHE HIT THE DASH BOARD WITH HER HANDS IN A RAGE. IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY HIS PEOPLE REPORTED FIRST THAT IT WAS A CAR ACCIDENT AND SHE WAS INJURED.I DON’T THINK FOR ONE MOMENT HE THOUGHT THAT SHE WAS GOING TO RAT HIM OUT .ESPECIALLY AFTER ALL THE FIGHTS THEY HAD BEFORE , BUT YOU KNOW WHAT THAT ASS WHOPPING WAS TO HOT AND SCARED THE HELL OUT OF HER ,CAUSE IT WAS LIKE A MIKE TYSON VS NAOMI CAMPBELL IN THAT CAR .

  • Steph

    @NYA and everyone else being bitches to my comment.. I don’t care I don’t need to justify to any of you and neither does chris. He does not care about what any of us have to say. And if you read the stories and the two alledged previous fights it even says she hit him first.. Rihanna is not as innocent as everyone thinks. Read the story abouther saying she hit her brother in the head with a glass bottle and then ask yourself if she is violent or not. Not once did I say Chris wasn’t right, all I said was she can’t expect to hit a man until he can’t take it anymore and then cry even he hits her back. They should have both kept their hands to themselves. And her report doesn’t even make sense. How is he gonna choke her And bite her while driving and not crash?? It’s impossible. So y’all say what you want..I’m still going to support him, not because he fine either but because he is a talented young man and his music his awesome. As for rihanna’s well she cant sing but hermusic isnt that bad but I’ve never even been a fan of her even before this incident! So hate on that!!

  • were n of yall in the car?

    How many ppl can fit in a Lambo? NOBODY I repeat NOBODY knows what did or did not happen in the car that night! Everybody bashing CB is going off a BOOTLEG affadvait report NOT the police report and Robyn Rihanna Fenty did not sign any statement so UNTIL she SAYS w/ her own mouth that is how it went down I am NOT a believer. Violence is NOT ok EVERYBODY keep their hands to themselves. Yes CB plead guilty and he is owning up to whatever action that took place that night BUT that does NOT mean Rihanna is innocent and doesnt need help as well! Rihanna FORGAVE him a long time ago she is NOT a battered woman as reports show she HIT him in the past therefore she has anger issues as well. TMZ reported that in her statement she ADMITTED TO HITTING HIM 1st that night and they hate CB so they have no reason to lie. everybody needs to step back and count to 10 and stop putting your own personal situation on Chris.

    I am glad his mother is standing by him and I hope you mothers in the room would do the same for your son if this was his FIRST time ever being in trouble with the law!

    I do NOT blame Rihanna and I do NOT blame Chris I BLAME THEM BOTH! Again everybody keep their hands to themselves plain and simple.

    I pray they both learned a lesson and get the help/counseling they need!!

    God bless Chrianna!

  • yvonne

    First of all the letter from chris brown’s mom was for his FANS and was put on his fan club for us to see. NOT for all you judgemental people who act like you live perfect lives. Thats why shes saying thank you for your support because he still has alot of people on his side. believe it or not

  • Cammie

    #41- What are talking about?

    1. She never admitted to hitting Chris that night in ANY court Document on TMZ
    2. Those Are Rihanna statements to the police, signed or not
    3. Her face is the obvious evidence
    4. Keep defending the woman beating until he strikes again

    @april: he didnt react over the text message, rihanna insulted his mother. Still no reason to react like that i know but every one should be forgiven if you know what i mean. but your entitled to stand by your opinion

  • QUEENSnyc

    I am not condoning a man hitting a woman. However, I don’t believe that Ms. Rere is just a victim, I strongly believed that she pushed him over the edge. It was clearly stated that she has slapped him in the past, but everyone just seem to let that go in one ear and out the other. I firmly believe in if a person likes to hit be prepared to be hit back, to hell with this man should not hit a woman. A Woman should not hit a man either. Furthermore, you and I both know that at the age of 19 we all lacked some form of control and maturity and at that age, you don’t think logically at times we tend to react impulsively, not saying that any of this is right. But let us look at the entire picture. He is a young man, still learning maturing and making mistakes in the process. He just should not have been with that big head Rere (with her non singing ASS!. KEEP PRAYING CHRIS AND LET THIS BE A LEARNING EXPERIENCE, NEVER LET ANYONE BRING OUT THE WORST IN YOU. Leave that big 4 head Biatch alone. Im sure you never reported all the times she may have slapped you, gone through your phone or other wise, but look at it this way perhaps things could have been worst everything happen for a reason. Just stay away from her.

    At the end of the day u can’t change what’s done sorrys only a word as a cb fan I forgive we all want and ask for forgivness yeah chris was wrong dead wrong but I feel like the judge should have gave rhinna anger manegement classess also bc it was said that she slaped chris before first also but word around is that chris has serious anger issues tmz reported that he got into it with his mom and started throwing dishes and all kinds of shit 50000 worth of damage now when u do this to your mom u know u don’t care what u do to anyone else

  • http://peoplewithblogs.com/members/wellaintthatablip chris brown fans are just sad

    These girls supporting Chris Brown obviously have no positive father figures or role models in their lives? If they did, these role models would absolutely not tolerate their daughters wasting their energy and time online supporting a guy that almost beat his girlfriend to death. I actually feel sorry for these girls. They are SO clueless. It’s just sad. But, hopefully, a few years from now, they will look back at all of the ridiculous anti-Rihanna social networking profiles that they set up and realize how wrong they were.
