After the recent news of R&B singer Chris Brown, 19, assaulting Pop singer Rihanna, 20, made headlines after the couple attended the Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy party which resulted in a physical altercation and the two not attending the Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 8th, Chris Brown has reportedly now issued a statement which states that he is sorry and saddened and is seeking out counseling. Brown issued a statement not much longer after the singer’s father Clinton Brown, 44, a corrections officer stated to press that his son was remorseful.
“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… all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else,” Chris Brown said in a statement.
For the past week, while everyone has been awaiting for Chris Brown to attend court on March 5, numerous reports have been issued on the two including news of Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty, 55, speaking about his daughter issuing this statement to PEOPLE:
“I know my daughter. You think you know somebody, but you really don’t. They seemed pretty happy. I don’t know what went wrong. There is some bruising. She will be alright. I think so. At some point, she will speak out. I hope she will stand up for women all over the world.”
Rihanna was reported to have suffered from a busted lip, swollen black eye, bloodied nose, and contusions on her forehead and both sides of her head as a result of the fight between the two. Everyone is still uncertain as to why Chris Brown lost his composure, but allegedly the entire fight is stated to have started after Rihanna got whiff of Chris Brown receiving a text message from an unknown person which led her to throw keys to a $2,000 a day rented Lamborghini out the window, etc.
An earlier picture of the two, taken before the incident happened, showed Rihanna happy and all smiles, while Chris Brown looked somewhat distant. Who knows, the heated argument could have started prior to them making it to the event.
As a celebrity couple with stardom and attention being attracted to their every move, the young couple will surely and hopefully learn from every experience that has transpired from this and their time together.
