It's all a part of his new documentary.
Chris Brown revealed details of the night that he beat his then-girlfriend Rihanna in his new documentary Welcome To My Life. Brown infamously assaulted the pop star on the night of the Grammys in 2009. He says that the violence stemmed from him being unfaithful and Rihanna’s reaction to that.
“She hated me after that,” he said about Rihanna finding out that Brown had cheated on her. “I tried everything. She didn’t care. She just didn’t trust me after that. From there, it just went downhill because there were too many verbal fights, physical fights as well. Mutual sides.”
The actual fight stemmed from the couple encountering a woman who he was once involved with during a party earlier in the night. “I remember she tried to kick me,” he said of the incident. “It was just her being upset, but then I really hit her with a closed fist. I punched her. I busted her lip. When I saw it, I was in shock. I was like, ‘F*ck, why the hell did I hit her?’”
Brown said that she spit blood into his face and it just made him more angry. “So from there, she spits blood in my face and I was like ‘Yo!’” he said. “It enraged me more.” “It was a real fight in a car,” he said. “We were driving in the street so I am like ‘Yo, we tripping. What the f*ck? What are we doing?’”
He said that he pulled the car over to try and resolve the fight. When he did that Rihanna snatched the keys out of the ignition and pretends to throw them away from the car. When Brown got out of the car, Rihanna yelled for help. “She yells out her door, ‘Help. he’s trying to kill me,’” Brown recalled.
He said that afterward he “felt like a f*cking monster.”
Many have agreed with Brown’s assessment. Since that night in 2009, countless people have lined up to take the singer to task for beating up Rihanna. Rihanna herself went through a very public period of getting over that image being associated with her, but Brown’s continued behavior did him no favors. He found himself in court several times and freaked out on the set of the Today show, furthering the image that he was unstable and violent.
While Rihanna can be thought of now without bringing up the violence upon her, Chris Brown is rarely mentioned without also having the conversation about whether it’s okay to support someone who put his hands on a woman.
What Do You Think?
It seems like Brown is finally trying to pay some sort of penance in this new documentary. What do you think? Should Chris ever be accepted back into the pop mainstream without that caveat or asterisk? Has enough time gone by to allow Brown to live his life? Or does he deserve to be reminded of that night every time he appears anywhere?
