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.

That boy is gonna need more than "God's help" if he wants to show his face anywhere again...a lot of people aren't too happy with him right now.

Are you freaking KIDDING me? People are saying that it's okay because Rihanna must have said something to provoke him? So that makes it okay to beat the living crap out of her.

You people will support anybody. You don't even know Chris Brown. He wouldn't talk to you on the street. Stop supporting him with your pro-abuse garbage.

It is NEVER okay for somebody to hit their spouse. It doesn't matter WHAT they say. You do NOT. HIT. THEM. You'd be singing a different tune if yours beat YOU up.

Anyone who defends Chris Brown is defending domestic abuse against women. If all women would stand up for each other, celebrate each other's successes, and collectively say "Hell no!" to domestic abuse, we would evolve into a better, stronger, and more respected people.

Chris Breezy, what you need counseling from your pastor, your mother and other loved ones for? You should know from your upbringing that it just aint righ to beat on any woman dude!!!!! You need to check and re-check the values and principles you formulated a long time ago, because clearly they aint working no mo.

You bet Chris Brown is a dead man, to do such a thing! His mind must be seriously injured and I think that he should stay away from her. Any man that hits his woman should actually be banned from society and never be allowed to be with a woman ever again! So WEAK!! His words do not mean a thing, not a single one of them! Liar! You should never hit the ones you love, then it is not love. Disgusting....!!!

I have no respect for this young man. Take away his money and he will never abuse another female. Some of our young men earn too much money before they learn how to live like decent young black men. When they abuse, whether it is baseball or football or as entertainers - take the money away. Those examples will show the next set of fools what may happen to them.
These guys need to read the underground railroad.....see what their ancesters had to go through and maybe they will will have a better understanding of who they are.. Brown talked about his pastor....that fellow probably didn't even go to church. He couldn't have to beat that girl up like that.

She should sue him for his future earnings if he has any after this.

It certainly wasn't love....love doesn't hurt like that.

Yo everyone should shut up, no one knows what happened that night, everything that occurred is speculation. Just because Chris Brown emerged unscarrred doesnt mean harm wasnt inflicted on him. Because Rihanna is a woman, we automattically throw the chivalry card. There are times when it is impossible to follow this, maybe this was one of those times. there is no way that we can know what happened that night, none of us were eyewitnesses to the incident, jus how he may be guilty he also very well be innocent. It could have been aggravated assault. Chris brown should not bear the brunt of this incident just because he isnt in the hospital. The fact is that men and women alike saw that rihanna was hit and automatically went against chris Brown without knowing ANYTHING about what happened. Until that comes out, we have no right at all to give our judgement. Speculation doesnt do anything, theres no point in trying to be a tabloid newspaper, Judgements are reserved for those who have the facts.

the87man, you're effed in the head if you think a girl who is a "drama queen" deserves to get beaten up for it. "she must have done something"?? seriously? even if she was a total bitch that doesn't give Chris Brown or anyone the right to physically hurt her. do you honestly believe yourself?? if so then that's pretty scary...

She must have gone 'uppity' on him....with some back-talk in front of his homies. Next time I'm sure he will beat her until her eyes are fully closed.
