Chris Brown offered up what appears to be a sincere and heartfelt apology to Rihanna and his fans

In a video that appeared online late Monday afternoon (July 20), Chris Brown has apologized publicly for the first time about the domestic altercation that took place between him and Rihanna earlier this year.

In the clip, obtained by MTV News, Brown, dressed in a red long-sleeve shirt with buttons on the front, spoke directly to the camera and apologized to his former girlfriend and his fans.

“I’ve told Rihanna countless times and I’m telling you today, I’m truly, truly sorry that I wasn’t able to handle the situation both differently and better,” Brown said.

At the beginning of the two-minute clip, Brown explains that his attorneys advised him to not speak about the situation until the legal ramifications were settled. But Brown said that ever since the February incident, he’s wanted to speak about the matter. The singer expressed his “deepest regret” over the fight and said he “accepts full responsibility” for the incident.

According to the police report, on the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards, Brown and Rihanna engaged in an altercation that left the “Umbrella” star with facial contusions. Just last month, Brown pleaded guilty to one count of felony assault. The singer will attend anger-management courses, seek therapy and perform community labor as a result of his plea deal.

Toward the end of the apology, Brown continues to express remorse. The singer said up until the incident, he was living his life in a way that would make those around him proud. Through soul searching, he said, and help from his minister and mother, Brown intends to work on himself and gain forgiveness for his actions.

“I only can pray that you forgive me, please,” he said to his fans.

    Pockets must be starting to hurt. “Reparations” will do it, I keep telling you all.

  2. Don’t be so pessimistic, since we just like every tabloid and every reporter are just speculating. We do not know the circumstances although we can assume based on what we’ve seen, however there are always two sides to a story. I feel like if MJ can molest little boys, R. Kelly can pee on fourteen-year-old girls and Kobe Bryant can rape people and fans still like them this should be no different. At least Chris Brown is taking responsibility for what he did and is making some kind of apology. Again just another speculation, but I think its a legit point.

  3. Like you said. Nobody knows the circumstances. But we are so hypocritical in general. Tom Joyner regularly denounces Chris Brown, but laughed when asked about supporting and playing R. Kelly music. He laughed and admitted that he did not understand why he is being hypocritical. The caller that asked him laughed too and said I love you guys and watch your show all of the time. Basically our foolish dismissal of hypocrisy is part of the problem that caused this trauma in the first place. We condemn but don’t help heal. We ask for forgiveness and don’t give it. I hope they both get a chance to grow stronger and find peace however this turns out. I hope people like Tom Joyner continue to admit their hypocrisy. It shows we are human (Unfortunately).
