Chris Brown apologises for his attack

Singer Chris Brown has issued a public apology in a written statement for "what transpired" last weekend. This refers to the violent attack and threats he made on the un-named women, reported in the media to be Brown's girlfriend Rihanna.

"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,” Chris's statement reads.

Police have said that they were called to the LA suburb of Hancock Park just after midnight last Sunday. Chris was involved in after an argument with a woman which escalated into violence. Police have declined to name the victim for confidentiality reasons. Police say the woman suffered visible injuries.

"Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong, while I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writings under my name are frauds." Chris added.

Rihanna has not yet appeared in public since and both Chris Brown and Rihanna have cancelled all public appearances since the alleged assault.

Chris has gone from being a teen icon with a clean cut reputation to a public villain, all within the past week since the news emerged. Celebrities, bloggers and the public have expressed outrage regarding the alleged attack. Many radio stations are now even refusing to play Chris's music.

Nobody should be subject to any form of physical violence. Thankfully the matter has come to light, hopefully this will prevent the violence from escalating any further between the couple. With Rihanna being a huge role model to many women all over the world, this might encourage other women to report crimes of this nature to the police.

The matter is now in the hands of the police, we hope the correct punishment is served and that Chris will truly seek help and emerge a better person as he has promised. Chris Brown himself has been scarred from physical abuse inflicted on his family during his childhood, we hope this cycle of abuse will end here.
