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.

Should it matter.    

ALL OF YOU GUYS NEED TO STOP!!!!
WE WERE NOT THERE TO WITNESS WHAT HAPPEN,SO THEREFORE WE CAN NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT HIM NOR RIHANNA.
BECAUSE IF WE DO WE ARE JUST JUDGING THEM AND GOD HAS TAUGHT US TO NEVER JUDGE.
CORRECT OR NOT?
I AM NOT SAYING IT WAS OKAY FOR CHRIS TO HIT HER,IT IS NEVER OKAY FOR A MAN OR WOMAN TO HIT SOMEBODY OR PHSICALLY ATTACK THEM.
NEVER!!!!!
BUT EVERYONE MAKES A MISTAKE. THIS TIME CHRIS MADE A BIG MISTAKE AND WILL NEED TO PAY UP.AND THATS WHAT HE IS DOING.
WE CAN NOT DWELL ON THE PAST BUT HAVE HOPE IT WILL GET BETTER IN THE FURTURE.
IT HAPPENED AND SADLY THERES NOTHING WE CAN DO.
AND FOR THE OBAMA COMMENT YOU HAVE TO KNOW IT TAKES TIME FOR CHANGE TO HAPPEN.LIKE HE SAID CHANGE WILL NOT HAPPEN OVER NIGHT.
AND FOR CHRIS BROWN FANS WHO NO LONGER FANS WELL THATS TO BAD.AND I AM GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU GUYS,BECAUSE NOT EVERYONE IS PERFECT AND JUST BECAUSE HE MADE A MISTAKE,YOU WILL TURN YOUR BACK ON HIM.SHAME ON YOU.
I STILL LOVE CHRIS BROWN AND KNOW HE WILL BE STRONG AND KEEP HIS HEAD UP HIGH!
;D

I was reading the first page of comments and what the hell? First of all what the hell does Obama have ANYTHING to do with this. I assume whoever made that dumb ass comment was trying to make it a racial thing but NEWS FLASH dumbass #1 race has nothing to do with abuse. The other comment that threw me was that she must have done something to provoke him and that she must be a drama queen...ok dumbass #2 someone who is abusive doesn't need to be provoked inorder to attack nor does the other party need to be a drama queen. Abuse is abuse no matter your race or gender. Nobody should be putting their hands on their girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband, etc. I hope they both get the help they need.

Oh I don't know exactly what happened...umm do you really need ALL the details? Or is enough to know A MAN don't care what his STATUS is, BEAT a WOMAN!

This isn't a joking manner, it shouldn't be taken lightly and Chris Brown CANNOT get away with some BS "I'm sorry" probably written by his PR!

This is insane and shouldn't be tolerated! Go to Jail Chris, then come back and say your sorry, perhaps then we'll believe you~

It really doesn't matter what she did. A man should be able to control himself at least enough to aviod beating a female
to that extent. I can sympathize with a slap or a push (which shouldn't happen either), but he just beat that girl. Either he needs to be jailed or committed. Anyone who's temper is THAT bad needs to be kept away from the general public!

"As for Rihanna's injuries, we continue to learn more. Cops took multiple pictures at the scene. Chris Brown allegedly hit Rihanna so hard with his fists, she could barely open her eyes for the photos -- they were almost completely swollen shut. She had a fat lip, her mouth was swollen, her nose was badly bloodied, and she had contusions on her forehead and both sides of her face."


DOES MATTER WHAT BUTTON YOU PUSH! This is uncalled for, and repeated over and over again, he could have stopped himself BUT DIDNT, He don't need god, he needs a jail cell!
