It's been five years since the world heard about Chris Brown's shocking attack on his then girlfriend Rihanna. By all accounts it was a vicious beating that eventually led to his pleading guilty to one count of assault with the intent of doing great bodily harm and serving out a 5 year sentence on probation with community service. And so, as far as the Loyal singer is concerned, the incident is in the past and "over with".


This much was clear when Ebro, host of the New York radio station Hot 97, asked him if he ever wanted to just say "I f****d up".

"Yeah, but you can only say it but so many times. I feel like through the years, I've said [I f****d 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" was hit curt reply.


"I don't have animosity about it" he went on to say. "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. 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."

As the interview continued, he sought to further clarify the relationship he now has with RiRi and the reason behind their long time will they/won't they status: "Yeah, we was cool, I feel like a lot of it was on me trying again to pick up the pieces because yeah, [I was in love]. I wanted to make sure it was still there but at the end of the day I wanted to make amends to her, showing her that I could be the man that she wanted me to be."


Chris made it clear that for him the situation was "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". He was quick to point out that "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".
