Chris Brown apologizes in statement

February 15th, 2009 // 157 Comments

One week after allegedly assaulting Rihanna during an argument, Chris Brown has finally issued a statement apologizing for his actions – by downplaying them:

“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.”

Okay, phew, he said God and his mom are helping him. Because had he just said a licensed therapist with a background in domestic abuse, I’d have to question the sincerity of his statement. But now, I’m pretty much convinced to have a daughter and let her date Chris Brown tonight. Who wants in?

    You think Rhianna thought “How’m I supposed to breathe with no air?” while Chris Brown was choking her?

    Stop the racist posts

  10. feckless

    Kanye is only supporting Chris Brown because they are sleeping together. It is really is a shame how dick-whipped Kanye is.

  11. Racist people are shameful

    All the racist talk is directed toward putting blacks down, there is no rush to stop it. If it was talk putting whites down this kind of talk would have stop long time ago. It’s sad to know we as a nation have really not evolved.
    Racist people survive because so many are willing to look the other way while they practice their hateful behavior.

    more christian/god pr horseshit; hedonist/nihilist public relations “executives” playing the religion card for the lowest common denominator sympathy. at least it’s celebrities eating their own shit. funny how hit-and-run halle berry, child-killer rebecca gayheart don’t have to “seek the counsel” of their pastors when they maim/kill people. gross. worst punishment for brown: anonymity.

    Obama is a fucking religious retard with dumbo ears and the IQ of a fruitfly

    BaCrock Obama is a fucking chimp moron who goes to church with his family every Sunday

    Quick, someone snap Chris Browns toothpick arms and pencilneck. See how the weakling likes that.

    this racism is pretty pathetic. black men are monkeys, huh? then why the f would you be jealous/envious/insecure?

    that said, c.brown made a pretty dumb mistake. domestic abuse is no joke… but, here’s a question for any females on here:
    adult women lie, steal, cheat, abuse, and even murder just as “effectively” as men…happens all the time…a man can’t ever justify defending himself with his hands? really?

  19. He’s trash, including his so called music.

  20. God is not ok with this, he just took advantage of Mary, he didn’t beat on her

    Sexism is one gender, usually male, having dominance over the other gender, usually female. The Bible contains many references to women that, in our modern minds, sound discriminatory towards women. Does this mean that God, and therefore the Bible, is sexist? We have to remember that the Bible describing an action does not necessarily mean that the Bible is endorsing that action. The Bible describes men treating women as little more than property, but that does not mean the Bible indicates approval of that action. Even in the instances where the Bible is giving a command regarding the treatment of women, it is not necessarily an indication of God’s ideal standard. The Bible is far more focused on reforming our souls than our societies. God knows that a changed heart will result in a changed behavior.
    It is also very important to understand that the Bible’s ascribing different roles to men and women is not sexism. The Bible makes it abundantly clear that God expects men to take the leadership role in the church and the home. Does this make women inferior? Absolutely not. Does this mean women are less intelligent, less capable, or viewed as less in God’s eyes? Absolutely not! What it means is that in our sin-stained world, there has to be structure and authority. God has instituted the roles of authority for our good. Sexism is the abuse of these roles…not the existence of these roles.

    XOXO !!

    #68 No. not for lying, stealing and cheating Really.
    Selff defense is the term you’;re looking for, and if a woman is attempting to take your life or otherwise physically harm you you’re justified using force to defend yourself, and even then there are limits on that force depending on the situation. You’re not allowed to beat the crap out of her for any other reason, just as she can’t take a waffle iron to your head if you refuse to obey her and take out the trash, or if she catches you cheating on her. Assault is assault., If you lay hands on someone for any other reason than to defend yourself then you need some self-discipline, a lawyer on 24 hour retainer and a fat wallet.

    The bible is the most self-contradicting, absurd crock of garbage ever published and sold.

  25. Dr Zaius

    Who voted for the Bible toting chimp BaCrock Obama?

  26. lawrence

    Why so many people keeps saying they saw your before on a celebrity and
    wealthy dati*ng site like “”or something?

  27. But God talked to the President

    Frightening world overfilled with humans. And we get stuck with a storm god to turn to that let’s his son die to prove he loves us.

    “Kanye is only supporting Chris Brown because they are sleeping together. It is really is a shame how dick-whipped Kanye is.”

    That’s funny. =D

  29. uhhhno

    i don’t give an eff what this freak has to say! he’s a woman beater! and if he believed in god SO MUCH then why is he going around punching his girlfriend in the face and biting her? i’m pretty sure when you go to church, you’re NOT supposed to do that sort of thing. he can say whatever the hell he wants, i’m not going to listen to a damn thing on the radio of his and i hope no one ever works with him again. selfish asshole

    #1 & #9… mimi is gone.

    She does not post here anymore because she hates sexist pigs like FISH.

  31. dft

    #71 – nice rationalization, but the bible is still mostly a pile of garbage that has been used to justify all sorts of unethical acts throughout history. Its people thinking that it’s the “word of ‘god’” instead of the word of some ancient dudes sitting around with ancient attitudes and customs that annoy the rest of us.

    P.S Creationists, on average, are statistically dumber than everyone else. Probably even dumber than chris brown.

    #22 – That was before storytellers retard… If you’re going to try and school someone maybe it’s you who needs to get your shit straight.

    #35… funny you should mention Kobe. It’s easy to forgive someone who’s semen was never found on or in the woman, who’s panties she wore at the time of the rape were clean yet the panties she wore the NEXT day had blood and semen (of another guy who wasn’t her b/f) in them. In fact, all evidence suggests that Kobe didn’t do crap to the woman and because of his other past history, he paid her off to stop the case because he didn’t want other things about him getting out. Course its also cheaper for him to pay her off then his own attorney’s for the case. Do a little research on it. Kobe had another lover he didn’t want divulged and the people in Colorado were actually given hell for all the money and everything they spent on a case that with all the evidence they could not have won.

    #82 you get your facts straight I’m with 22 lol j/k. Ya know I love ya baby.

  34. Delgo

    Chris Brown should just

  35. jessica


  36. Well good statement made by his publicist. I doubt he feels any sorrow for what happened. He just wishes he would have done it at home were nobody would have seen it….

  37. Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. * I am so pissed off that y’all found out I beat the crap out of this biatch on the regular.*

    I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones. * I have a MOTHER. Y’all have mothers, right? Just think about that. I have a MOTHER, just like you. Feel sorry for me yet? Thanks!*

    I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person. *Can’t be any more of a douche than today. I’m a wife beater. Yes, I am a turd in a toilet. So now all I gotta do is become less of a tard. Easy street.*

    PS: Cut off Chris Brown’s hands then he can whack them with his stumps!

  38. Lowlands

    At least he cut his nose hair.

  39. angeleyes

    I have to admit though, like most black dudes I think chris is fine as hell and I could never really believe he would hit that slut without merit. I brought home my first black guy to meet my mom when I was 15 and although it shocked my family then they began to get used to it over the years. They are agressive yes but trust me ladies they are more than worth it for their expertise and energy in the sack!

    [ 40 P L U S S E E K I N G . C 0 M ] is really a funny and interesting place to meet 40 plus and attractive women or hot men. Many hottie photos at this site, you can enjoy latest interesting photos or talk about hot topic with other friends. I’ve met many thoughtful 40plus singles who were trying to find true love.

    Black USA people and their past. . . Must learn to take their resposibilities. . . In the past they didn’t had any responsibilities. . . It will be difficult. . .

    Didn’t R.Kelly fuck some 14 year old? He still has some-what of a career. This might just blow over for CB.

  43. justifiable

    #85 Yeah, right, and the car dashboard bit her when she hit it. Step away from the cap lock key and wise up – no one seeks pastoral counseling because their girlfriend left her seatbelt off! Brown delivered up a legally crafted apology where he’s sorry for something but he doesn’t say exactly what – it’s a calculated public appeasement without incriminating himself. Don’t you think if it could all be easily explained away by lack of a seatbelt, his PR team would be beating that excuse like a fucking drum? Not everyone who thinks he’s a fucking douchebag is a racist. But I’d be willing to bet cash money you still think Michael Jackson just likes to have little boys sleep over because he’s young at heart.

  44. Black Dragon

    Whitey always ready to pass judgement on a brother. She hit her head on the dashboard and the bites are from rough sex. Why is that so hard to understand for a people that think they are so smart? Don’t you have your own kind to worry about?Angeleyes how old are you and what kind of body you got if you like the brothers?

    #91 It’s your turn to get lunch today stop.I want cheese and salad french bread stop.And an orange juice stop.End message stop. Beeep!

    Leave the monkey alone. They don’t know any better.

  47. ishi-san

    @ Ronin (25 -345): Yes I did read the Bible. And if you would have read what I said you would have understood that I am not a big fan of the church and everything that comes with it. I read it because I was interested NOT because anybody told me to do so. So safe us both the time in trying to outsmart me here….

    and by the way, I don’t think it should be demonized the way you do it. If you see these texts from an anthropological point of view it is better understandable than from the perspective our modern eye gives us.
    have a nice day

  48. feckless

    I wonder if that is the same Mom & God shop that Michael Jackson went to?

    When we bring back slavery, I got dibs on this monkey. I also call dibs on Biraq Oboombox and his Orangutan wife.
