Individual with money, seems to think they are untouchable. Regarding to this incident, there is always two sides to a story. I have seen women hit themselves, as well as make false allegations to prosecute there spouse. I really hope this is not the case. there are to many woman really needing someone to believe them when in crisis, I pray for both of them, as well as hoping this is not a money scandal. this economy is very disruptive

Everyone keeps talking about Chris Brown's squeaky image, like he is not human. I don't agree with violent acts towards women or men, but if his image was all that clean then something must have been really really messed up for him to go off the way he did. On Big Boy in the Neighborhood radio station I heard that she told him that she might have given him HERPES! I might slap a b!t@h on my first reaction. Either way her wrong if he did abuser her and she is wrong if she expected a shrud of the shoulders if in fact that was the reason for his reaction! I'm just sayin'

I honestly feel that this is what everyone does they hear the info and make prejudged comments before all the news is out and its true they are stars but they are also human just like you and i so to assume that makes them super human or anything else but normal people is silly on our part the only difference with them is that they are in the lime light and they got alot of money but they put they pants on the same way we do with that being said now let me say this .... NO she dont deserve to be hit if that is what actually happen ... and NO he is not a coward or jerk or joke ... who cares she or he is the most important thing to me is to figure out why did he make the decision he did if he did hit her .. why wasnt it a option to just walk away ....or why didnt she just walk away ...thats the problem with this society today people dont know how to just bury they pride and let things go and walk away ...instead they act on impulse judgements and they end up like T.I. .... and numerous others in the lime light and then they find better judgement ....well irreguardless to me long as they find it ....so i say think first then make a better jdugement.

im a fan of both their music, but common sense would show anyone with a heart that this was a stupid move on his part! regardless of what dedicated fans say, hes a sick bastard for putting his hands on a woman.

this is sooo sad
i was watching the news and this subject came on and they were talking about his past when he was younger
his step father abused him and his mom
i think that could have something to do ith this
but overall i would never see someting like this coming from him
:(
it makes me sad
i still look at him the same way bcus everybody makes mistakes and this is his first
so i think everyone shold cut him some slck hes ony 19
thats my opinion
