Chris Brown: I Still Love Rihanna

The rebuilding of Chris Brown’s image is in full swing. The singer is making the media rounds this week telling anyone who will listen how much he regrets beating up Rihanna and how much he still loves her. First up will be Chris’ Larry King interview which you can preview below. Clad in a sky blue sweater and bow tie, Chris was accompanied by his mother Joyce Hawkins and attorney Mark Geragos.

Next up on Chris’ media tour is People Magazine, who today leaked tidbits of the interview they did with the singer.

Excerpts below…

Chris on how he feels today about Rihanna: “I never fell out of love with her. That just wouldn’t go away.”

Chris on what happened immediately after the fight with Rihanna: “I was distraught… I went to my mom on the same night and told her what happened and broke down.”

Chris on what makes him different from his stepfather whom Chris said abused his mother: “I feel like he enjoyed it. He was an abuser. It was continuous.”

This issue of People hits newsstands this Friday, September 4th.

  1. Is he serious? According to several reports, Chris Brown claims that he doesn’t remember assaulting Rihanna. I suppose he don’t remember the other times either!

  2. Of course he is gonna claim he doesn’t remember. If he says he does eventually someone will ask him to talk about it in detail and we all know he doesn’t want to do that.

  3. I know they say love is pain but not to the point of beating someone and thats on the strengh of both parties cause niether one is innocent

  4. But no matter what he says it does not justify the reason of beating her PERIOD!

  5. I know he regrets it (though part of me thinks he may regret it more for his career). I believe he did/does love her in a sense but not the way he should{‘ve} seeing as though one would never cause harm if they truly loved someone. I pray that Chris heals, honestly learns from his situation and becomes a better man through the grace of God.

  6. he’s a damn liar. How the hell did he forget hitting her and her face was so messed up? Hollywood and more bullshit

  7. If he is serious about not remembering then he needs to be institutionalized until he recieved the proper help. That is a black out rage and it will happen again if he has not reciev the proper help.

  8. He does remember what happened that night… CNN/Larry King purposely released a snippet of the interview that will get folks talking.

    If they released the part where he took responsibilty for his actions and whatnot it wouldn’t be enough to people to tune in. Releasing the snippet where he said “No…” had the effect they wanted.

    Chris has since left a statement about the snippet they released and all of the uproar it seems to be causing…

    Chris Brown is not happy with the clip that surfaced from his upcoming interview on Larry King Live — the clips in which he says he doesn’t remember what happened the night of the Rihanna incident.

    Brown just released the following statement:

    “There have been reports on the Internet that I didn’t remember what happened that night with Rihanna. I want to try and set things straight.

    That 30 seconds of the interview they used of me was taken from a one hour interview during which that same question was asked something like 4 or 5 times — and when you look at the entire interview you will see it is not representative of what I said.

    The first four times – or how ever many times it was – I gave the same answer — which was that I didn’t think it was appropriate for me to talk about what happened that night. I said it was not right for me and it really wasn’t fair to Rihanna. The fifth time – or whatever it was – I just misspoke. I was asked, “Do you remember doing it?” and I said, “No.”

    Of course I remember what happened. Several times during the interview, my mother said that I came to her right afterwards and told her everything. But it was and still is a blur. And yes, I still can’t believe it happened because it is not me or who I am or is what happened like anything I have ever done before.

    As I have said several times previously, I am ashamed of and sorry for what happened that night and I wish I could relive that moment and change things, but I can’t. I take full responsibility for my actions. What I have to do now is to prove to the world that this was an isolated incident and that is not who I am and I intend to do so by my behavior now and in the future.”

    As far as him still being in love with Rihanna… I can understand that. Even when the worse of situations you don’t instantly fall out of love with someone. There were in a relationship for almost two plus years in addition to being friends before hand… if he said he didn’t love her anymore I would be apt to give him all kinds of sideeyes. I am sure the feelings are still there for Rihanna as well. Now is it enough or better yet enough for them to continue and remain in said relationship… not nor right for me to judge. I just wish them both well while I await new music and success from both.

  9. I don’t believe him many teenage idiots are blaming rihanna for her misfortune and i think that weak -ss parenting and the ignorance in pop music that he and the others rihanna included propage trought their music is to blame so he can kiss mine, didnt he said that people that spoke on his actions were “haters”? and wearing that ugly “oops” chain? he need more people i am DONE with him

  10. I don’t believe him. Bastard never loved her in the first damn place.

  11. @ drmkpr i agree with you I’m not a negative person and you don’t seem like one as well.
    People are so quick to judge. Shut up dam everyone deserves a second chance, chris has enough money to be set for life and he could easily tell everybody it’s none of your business what happened that night but he’s not, if it was you i guarantee you’d not wanna take a trip to prison. I believe what he’s saying until he gives me a reason not to do so and if he does it again then he doesn’t deserve the respect Im giving him.

  12. I would love to see some people reactions if it happened to their sisters, then folks don’t know how to write or say “shut up” get the hell out of here with that nonsens had that shit happen to the singer you all lick up in here you would be raising all hell around here a bunch of hypocrites

  13. the moral of this is everyone deserves a second chance what if you were in the situation chris is in you would want to be treated like a human being and given a second chance point blank.

  14. I think they both need help. I think both of them were willing participants in an abusive relationship – if this did not become public I imagine they would still be snuggled up somewhere claiming love. I was in a relationship just like this when I was their ages – the one day I grew up.

  15. he also then took that comment back and said he didn’t mean to say it that. I’m not sure how he meant to say, but oh well,they are through and everyone should move on with their lives now

  16. The blow by blow transcript was very disturbing. Some people are acting like it was a slap for a slap..That boy beat that girl to dam near unconsciousness. That takes alot of rage; rage that he needs to address in counseling. All he keeps talking about is being a role model again..Hell with that! Get your own life in order before you try to set an example for somebody else.

  17. Like it has been said by so many BEFORE either of these 2 ppl get back into a serious relationship..they need help.

  18. I feel sorry for Chris Brown but he needs to get help or he is going to blackout with the next girl he beats up!!!

  19. i support chris and pray for him..its funny how people take 30 secs of an interview and judge this whole thing..smh..

    @hmm, you sound silly..he can be a role model just by getting his life in order stupid..he already back in VA to do his time for six months and getting help..so please STFU..

  20. @Hmmm you said it right mofos need to shat the fell up with that second chance bshit, role model it’s not about a second chance its about principles the minute after the assault was released in the media folks were already talking about how rihanna deserved it and how chirs should be forgiven, second chances are easy to give we all make mistake being happy for someone’s unhappiness just like most of you morons here calls for drastic measure holla at doctor phil because you must be feel really bad about yourself to condone what chris done and stop letting tv ,weave and ass raise your kids then they grow up shaking their ass and wearing skimpy outfits for a living, letting a man go as far as beating their ass, beat someone near inconscious and what not! Raise your own damn kids and find roles models in your entourage not in hollywood DUMB arsses

  21. Was it really love?
    When it comes to celebritys and your average young “folk” is it ever love?

    I think these kids were physically attracted to each other, they had some fun, and probably some crazy good sex, all of that does not equal love. Anyways I hope he grew from this experience, and I hope he won’t be shallow with his choices for a mate in the future. I will pray for this brother.

  22. @ goons – you sound like a stan with its head in the sand. He can’t be a role model UNTIL he straightens himself out..you can’t do that over night..and so far the only thing I’ve seen him do is promote underage drinking (yea the boy is only 20) and wearing a “oops” chain which I hear is another slap in rih rih’s face.

    As for as doing his time..he just went to Va last night so practice what you try to preach….STFU!

  23. So if u get fired from a job does that mean you deserve not to ever have another job again in your life???

    Everyone has different feelings about things though I personally think he deserves a second chance, somebody else thinks he should go to prison, & somebody else would think he should burn in hell, thats just the way society works.

  24. I’m not going to talk about whether Chris still loves Rihanna or not… or even what her feeling for him might be… as I said previously… not my place or right to talk about it. I will simply say I wish them both well and I wish them both to get whatever help they may need in life and in love.

    As far as what this post is about… forgivenss and redemption. I believe it was Voice who typed imagine if it were your mother, sister or family member and how would you feel. Well in my case it was my aunt and my uncle.

    My uncle was abusive, severely at times, to my aunt. So I see propectives on both sides. Should I hate him and never attempt to forgive to forget all that he did? Should I put the blame on my aunt for staying with an abusive man and say whatever beatings she got she deserved because she tried to stay?

    Life and experience changes many things. My uncle and aunt realized that the relationship between them was wrong and they went their seperate ways. My uncle got the necessary help he needed, manned up and admitted his fault to his then wife and has never put his hands on another woman. Had I turned my back on him, vowed never to forgive him, and shouted out to all that he was unsorry and repentive of his actions I would not know the man he has become today.

    Had I placed the blame on my aunt claiming all the pain she went through deserved I would have missed out on so much of her as. She has since passed away [ironically stopping a domestic violence situation from continuing] but had I wrote her off imagine how I would be feeling now had I never showed her how proud I was of her for moving on and building a life for her and her children after splitting from my uncle.

    So to say Chris is undeserving of forgiveness is wrong. Forgiveness and redemption go hand and hand in my book. Once someone is forgiven they are allowed to set out on a road to redemption. Redemption is owning up to ones faults and wrong doings while making amends and willingly facing the consequences that come your way. That is also my hope for Chris. Now that the necessary people [namely Robyn, his mother, himself] have forgiven him he can set out on his road to redemption and be the man and role model he wants to be.

  25. @ 17150918…. Thank you….

    As I said previously…. living and life experiences opens one’s eyes to things and allows one to see things from a different perpective…

  26. Please move on!!!…Only bitter ppl won’t forgive those who have done wrong.He made a terrible mistake that he has to live with.DNT believe everything the media r blogs sites tell you.
    How come when celebrities slapped their gf’s up side the head..Everyone was pretty much quite about it.They wasn’t concerned as they r now with CB & Rihanna sitituation..
    If the girl wanted to let up the restraining order,that right there should’ve told the world to let go..He knows what he did was wrong.Just let him live his life in peace like everyone has done for all the other celebrities that has done wrong.
    GOD has forgiven him,so can everyone else!!!.Everybody is quick to jump sides when you only know half of the story.
    Hypocrites in this world r stupid…Ppl saying negatives things like he’ll do it again..Should have faith in him
    There are a lot of ppl that hit women bt nuthing as been done about it..
    He didnt say he didnt remember what happened that night,he didnt want to talk about it out of respect of Rihanna.Everyone deserves another chance.Maybe the blog sites made up about the other times they’ve had a fight,just so he could long worser than he already does..Who knows
    You’d have to be stupid to believe everything you hear & see…

  27. He just got teared up on Anderson coper andlarry king so what you peopel think Don’t really matter most people see the truth and are not buying you all trying to sweep this under the rug!

  28. 1st let me say that CB deserves to be forgiven by everyone. “You have to forgive in order to be forgiven!” Dont be so quick to judge & hate! Thats why Judges are judeges. The judge has ordered what he needs to do and from my knowledge he is willingly doing so. CB has lost so much already due to this incident! No one else should have anything to say. These teenagers are “teenagers”! What else do you expect? He is young and he is going to make mistakes; as well as Rhi! Like I said before Rhi is not as innocent as she and the media is making her to be! She should NOT have put her hands on him AT ALL and Vice Versa! The double standard on domestic violence really needs to stop! As one commented earlier, they both need help and need to recollect and observe their lives and then move forward once they have decided whats best for them! Its funny how these 30 & 40 year old GROWN rappers/actors/athletes/celebrities can murder (literally), beat on their wives, cheat, do many other illegal acts and not get the scrutiny from all that CB is getting. But when this “young” boy makes a mistake (that can be fixed) everyone is quick to make sure that his career is over for good! Get real people!!!!

  29. What kind of moron compares Domestic Violence with “a job”? damn some people are simple minded DrmKpr, i respect your opinion and i feel what you’re saying but people are way too quick to “forgive” chris borwn and i think it has a lot to do with the fact that the victim is rihanna

  30. @ voice

    It can be compared to anything especially a job because people like you are saying he doesn’t deserve a second chance to regain his career thats just like saying if you make a mistake and get fired at a job do you deserve not to ever have a job again it makes since you just don’t want it to because your ignorant (p.s. now im attacking you)! You people act like he’s commited first degree murder. NO ONE and I repeat NO ONE has the right to put their hands on another person, but just like diddy said NOBODY except them was in that car so stop trying to imagine what happened that night Rihanna MAY not be as innocent as you think she is.I’m not quick to judge people so i believe that’s the difference between me and you.

  31. 17 something you can’t attack me because baby i already dismissed you i done killed your little act already so MORON STOP trying to come for me i’m over YOU

  32. You didn’t come back with anything thats how you and i both know that im speaking the truth. but nice speaking to you again.

  33. everyone deserves forgiveness i agree but he shud have given us time to forget him a lil bit and finish his community service,get some help and education…i blame her mom for being part of the problem all they want is for Chris to get back to work and make more money for them,i forgive Chris coz he is a young boy who has been forced to grow and the people around him dnt care or dnt know better that includes her mom,she shud be protecting her baby.
