Chris Brown: So Sorry

2/15/2009 4:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BrownIt only took Chris Brown a week since we broke the story of his alleged beatdown of Rihanna to release a statement... but here it is.

"Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God's help, to emerging a better person. Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writing under my name are frauds."

A spokesperson for Rihanna declined to comment.

personally i don't feel that bad about what happened to rihanna this happens to plenty of women but their story ain't on the news...also nobody really knows what happened in that car. seriously he beat her over a text thats pety if he was such a quick tempered guy than he would have been hit her and they would not have lasted as long as they did. i believe it was more than that. what if that girl did something more than what is claim. people choosing sides and really don't know whats up what happens if it was really her fault and she provoked him. would you still thinks hes worng if she cheated and gave him a std would he still be wrong?

Ri and Chris are done. stick the fork in 'em. Maybe they'll f*** each others brains out, making up. Our kid's don't need or want such role models. And yes, the public made you and they can break you. after it's all over..Ri will try to take him back to barbados with her..But i don't think he'll go when she has no bank roll.the 50G ring he bought her as a peace oops piece offering, should have been donated to a battered women's shelter. she may as well learn to like CZ's.

I've got it. Let's get Chris to agree to be put in the ring with a professional boxer to go ten rounds as part of his punishment. For every round he makes, he getts (we'll figure out how much time off his sentence once he is sentenced). This should be done right away before he even gets to train (after all, he didn't give Rihanna time to train for HER prize fight with him). Ever watch a bully who bullies someone weaker than himself when he is confronted with a big 'un? Every time, they'll turn tail and run like the little twerp of a coward they. Chris, someone needs to give you at least 9 violent blows to your face and bite your cheek and fingers and see how you like it, you miserable excuse for whatever the H you are. Can't even call you human. Maybe you're really one of Satan's children. Rihanna, what can anyone tell you. You're dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumbo, dumbo, dumbo bimbo, dumbo bimbo, see her run.

What really makes me mad about some people they are only looking at it from the woman's side when they really need to look at both sides .People are making it seem like he hit her for no reason and he attacked her out of the blue.They aren't saying she hit him first because they don't want to look at that fact. They are making it seem like its all his doing.So what? Couples fight,this isn't the first time and its not going to be the last.I know its not alright for a man to hit a woman but to me being a young woman I feel if a woman hits a man she should get hit back.I will all ways stay a big fan of chris brown's and I accept what he is saying and I believe him.(p.s if you were a man and a woman was attacking you, will you not fight back because she is a woman?)

There's no doubt about it the whole sorry to the media is a complete PR issue. We all know that what Chris Brown allegedy did and I'm purely speaking legal talk, is what we are supposed to adhere by in the eye of the law. Would we be as judgemental if he were'nt a celebrity; we probably wouldn't care. I'm hearing people state "boy's should never hit girls" that should also be vice versa, neither should be hitting one another that's why we have domestic dispute laws among other laws against violence. We are jumping to judge before the facts come out, granted she bares physical bruises but that's only part of the story. Let the facts come out before we jump to anymore of the crazy stories. Also I am displeased by the host of TMZ looking for people to be negative toward the situation. As an editor I would have expected him being a lead editor or commentator not to be as subjective he was/is during his time on the air.

regarding comments number 615

Those of us that really can spell and speak with a grammar level that should be mandatory to pass 4th grade (but clearly isn't) would greatly appreciate you taking your own advice (last sentence).

BTW, it's because NOT cause. Your usage of the word cause is completely incorrect and does not make sense. Please get out your grade school dictionary and look it up. Spell check would also be a very good idea for you.

FACTS:
Chris was arrested
Chris was released on $50,000.00 bond
People who are defending Chris are deniers of TRUTH

Man what ever just because he is just now making a statement doesn't mean anything its kind of sad that when both of them were fighting just because she's a female everyone jumps down chris brown's back because females are suppose to be the weakier of the two. man thats bull and everyone knows it has clearly been reported that she admitted to starting the fight while he was driving but since she's a female her putting his hands on him isn't wrong man thats crazy. If you ask me both should get some kind of punishment just because she's a female doesn't excuse her behavior and he should've been the bigger man. and for everybody accusing him right off the back yall really have no say so in anything because guess what you dont know the real and true store.... I'm a fan of both and i believe BOTH are in the wrong!!!

Nobody knows what happened between Chris and Rihanna. They are the only ones who know what went down. He is apologizing for what he did, he is human too....he didnt have to speak out on the situation at all...its his life...Rihanna didnt say nothing but nobody is saying anything bad about her.....she has yet to say something about the situation.....

Rihanna allegedly had bite marks, cut lip, swollen eye and contusions and yet no one has seen any pics.I just think that every one is being ignorant and blaming Chris Brown based off what the media is reporting. HELLO it is 2009 and women provoke men, that doesn't justify what he did but I don't believe that Chris woke up that morning and said, "What should I do today? Oh I know lets beat up Rihanna and ruin my career." People need to be open their eyes couples fight its not the first time and it definitely wont be the last. I think we should all wait out and see what the real deal was, I think Chris is an awesome, talented youn man. He will be able to bounce back from this. For those ignorant people saying his career is over, I sorry to disapoint you but this will most likely make him stronger. There are a lot of fans supporting him, like he said much of what was reported was wrong. Media always blows things out of proportion. I honeslty believe they both were in the wrong, but people should leave them alone they made mistakes yes BOTH of them RIHANNA isn't an angel, we all have our flaws so people need to stop saying its all on Chris. His true fans will stand and I will be sure to stand with them. Not a believer of Rihanna she looks like she likes the attention and loves to start problems.



As a woman I believe if you keep pushing/hitting a man, expect to get oushed/hit as well. This is pretty B.S. that they say a man can not hit a woman, but what makes it okay for a woman to hit a man? Isn't that called Sexist? People need to understand if it would have been rihanna beating Chris down they would all just turn around from the situation and not put so much thought into it. If they were just normal people, they would have just forgotten about it by now but NO since Chris had such good integrity people (riri) felt the need to sabotage his integrity, all I can say is he's seems like a good kid and deserves the right to be heard. Good think your in Cali "YOUR INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY"

Clearly a statement written up by someone on his camp. Was it heartfelt...hell no! Dude ain't sorry. He's sorry everyone found out that he's a women beater, that's about it. If he was truly sorry than he would have stopped the first time he hit her. Not the first time that night...the first time in their relationship. I bet he'd beat her ass again if she "stepped outta line". (shakes head) Pitiful! After this I'm sure we won't hear anything else from him. Cause he's career is definitely over. :)
