Chris Brown 'Depressed' Since the Attack

8/25/2009 7:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown claims he's been "depressed" ever since his February attack on Rihanna.

The statement was part of a probation report released after today's sentencing, in which Brown was also quoted as saying he "does not want to carry on that cycle."

Today, Brown was sentenced to 5 years probation and 180 days of community labor -- probably won't help with his depression issues.

Depressed? WTF? What about Rhianna? How happy do you think she feels having to go through all this mess? At least she acted like a responsible adult and stayed away from him.

This guy is nothing more than the low life's on the other side of 8 mile & I'm not talking about the suburbs. I would have at least given him a year in jail. Animals should put in a cage.
It's also pretty ironic that he gets himself a white lawyer.Where was Jessie or Sharpton. Oh, they would have been there if he got jail time. Racism, white justice system. All black boys disrespect black women. Beat the & leave the kids fatherless until the kid is old enough to sling rock or sell booty. What did anyone really think was going to happen? Just another O.J out walking again.

I am shocked that this loser got off virtually scott free. Probation? are you kidding? He's not depressed. This is a joke. He is an abuser and manipulator. Justice was NOT served.

This is just another case of celebrity justice. A slap on the wrist, a small fine and on your way. Although he looks like he couldn't beat his way out of a wet paper bag, he still has to live with the fact that he is a punk ass woman beater.

I agree with Nameless. He's mostly ashamed. And I couldn't care less. Everybody just take a moment and envision him banging Rihanna's head up against a window. Imagine blood spattering. Now, imagine him promising her there's more where that came from. Now, imagine him stopping ONLY when he couldn't find his car keys and he sees her on the phone calling the police. Yeah, nice imagery right? GO TO HELL, Chris. Everybody deserves a 2nd chance, but what you did is despicable. Stop being a baby! Depressed...sheesh! What the hell is he gonna be the nxt Ryan Jenkins now??? He def doesn't get my sympathy!!!

Hollywood's a Hazard    

I think he should go on Oprah. How would she handle this interview?

He's as 'depressed' and 'sorry' as Vick is for torturing and murdering dogs over three years. Yeah, right. The smirks on both their faces *really* show their sorrow and regret - at getting caught!

After a beating like that the reason Brown is heading to prison is... oh, right, he's a freaking celebrity.

Why is it that these "celebrities" never do any
jail-time? Being convicted of a felony dosen't
deserve probation. This is DISCUSTING.

Yes, Rihanna's the bad guy here. WTF? Females like you make me ashamed to be a woman sometimes. You're a sorry excuse for a woman, if you're a woman at all. I suspect you're another one of Chris Brown's delusional, teenage groupies.
