Chris Brown is finally ready to discuss about all the drama with Rihanna and mistakes he made in the past.
The singer stopped by Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning radio show to promote his new album X and had a revealing chat.
Breezy opened up about the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna and why they tried to give their romance another shot.
Chris said, “Honestly, I just kinda listened to the wrong—’OK, we need to to do this’ PR strategy—I really just wanted to be like, man, f–k y’all, and that’s how I feel, because it’s my personal life. I’m going through a troubled time right now.
“I feel like through the years, I’ve said [I f–ked up] enough now to where it’s like, bro if you’re still on that then I feel sorry for y’all, because it’s over with. I don’t have animosity about it. Obviously I have remorse about it and it’s something that’s really serious, but as far as the situation—like me and her, we made amends, we good. She’s my friend,” he continued.
“So at the end of the day, I knew that was a mistake I would never make again, but I take into consideration like, dang, I was like 17-18—I’m 25 now—so I look back at it now like, dang, and I’m still doing community service and seeing the judge every month and a half over that situation.
“It’s something that, in your personal life, you definitely wanna keep those skeletons in your closet but because I’m an artist like me, you gotta be public about it. Everybody has their own demons and their own skeletons, but it’s only how they handle it after when it’s showcased. Some people have great political speeches, I can’t do that. I can talk about it like this. I can give you a great song.”
He admitted that he was touched by Rihanna’s interview with Oprah, saying, “She’s showing me she cares because I didn’t know for a while…I was actually moved by it”.
Things went south fast after RiRi started dating Drake. Brown revealed he did think Rihanna did that to hurt him.
Brown stated, “I’m content with who I am, so whoever decides to move on or do their thing, that’s cool. You gotta consider that was in the thug Chris Brown era when I was…that was when I was all up on runnin’ up on dudes”.
Ebro asked if Chris thinks RiRi dated Drizzy to hurt him, replying, “In a way I do…It’s understandable. It’s the game, we young…we do that at that age. I think once we hit our 30s, we’re in a mature stage of life and we’re not focusing on that.”
Brown shared that Drake’s camp reached out to him and his people prior to the ESPYs to pitch doing a sketch together (you all remember that, right?) and that’s when the pair finally decided to move forward.
“Let’s break this whole beef thing and make light of the situation because it shows growth and maturity,” Brown said.
Chris also later spoke about Karrueche Tran and a few other things.
