Update: Chris Brown Breaks Silence, Singer Apologizes & Shoots Down Reports Of Facebook Comments, Jay Z Calls For Support For Rihanna (video)
Chris Brown released a statement via his spokesman today (February 15) apologizing for his attack on Rihanna and shot down reports that he had written disparaging remarks about her on his Facebook after the incident.
"Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counselling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God's help, to emerging a better person,” Brown wrote.
“Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong,” he continued. “ 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."
He is currently out on $50,000 bail and will appear in court on March 5th. Rihanna, who suffered visible injuries from the attack, is cooperating with police who are building a domestic violence case against Brown.
Hip hop mogul Jay Z also commented on the situation, stating "Just imagine it being your sister or mom and then think about how we should talk about that..."

There is a rumor swirling on the web the Seth Binzer of VH1's Sober House has suffered from a heart attack which caused cardiac arrest.
At this point this is just a rumor, I wouldn't pay too much attention to it but if there's anythig to know we'll update you.
Our most sincere condolences go out to the families immediately effected by this tragedy...
A Continental Airlines plane crashed in suburban Buffalo, New York, late Thursday with 44 passengers and four crew members aboard, according to authorities. CNN is reporting all people aboard the plane were killed. There's been one confirmed death on the ground.
Flight 3407, operated by Colgan Air, was en route from Newark, New Jersey, when it went down in Clarence Center, said Bill Peat with New York State Emergency Management in Albany.
The plane crashed about 10:20 p.m., hitting a home and bursting into a fireball, according to New York State Trooper John Manthey.
The crash took place about seven miles from Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Watch video from CNN affiliate WGRZ »
Area resident Keith Burtis said he was driving to the store about a mile from the crash site when he heard the plane go down. "It was a high-pitched sound," Burtis said. "It felt like a mini-earthquake.
Shortly after the crash, Burtis said he saw a steady stream of fire trucks rush by him as smoke billowed into the sky.
Other witnesses told CNN affiliate WGRZ they saw the plane nose-diving toward the ground.
Continental Airlines confirmed that the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 was operating between Newark Liberty International Airport and Buffalo.
The National Transportation Safety Board said early Friday that it was preparing a "go team" to head to Buffalo to investigate the crash. The aircraft has seating capacity of 74, officials said.
There was a wintry mix at the time of the crash, officials said.
Officials said relatives of passengers aboard the flight should call 1-800-621-3263 for information.
At this time, officials said they are not concerned about a hazardous materials situation on the ground.

Chris Brown may have gotten lucky because the charge he was booked on is kinda weak, law enforcement sources tell TMZ. But he's still in big trouble, and Rihanna says it's not the first time he's attacked her.
Sources say the Los Angeles County District Attorney kicked the case back to the police for further investigation because evidence that he made criminal threats against Rihanna is kind of thin. Our sources are quick to say he will, however, almost certainly be charged with felony domestic battery, a lesser offense but still serious.
Here's how it went down, according to the police report. After Chris received a text message from a woman who wrote about getting together, an argument erupted. By the way, initially, Rihanna would not tell cops what started the argument.
She did, however, tell them that during the argument, he started hitting her. According to the police report, she ordered him to drive her home and "faked a call" to someone, saying things like, "He's dropping me off. Make sure the cops are there."
Rihanna told cops the fake call enraged Brown. He said something to the effect of "You are really fu**ed up now. I'm going to kill you." This statement is the basis of the criminal threats charge.
At that point, according to the report, Brown allegedly began a violent attack with his fists. At some point, Rihanna took the keys out of the ignition and threw them outside.
And there's this. According to the police report, she told cops this was not the first time Brown hit her. She referred to it as an ongoing and escalating abusive relationship.
We're told the criminal threats charge is based on that one statement Brown allegedly made. As one law enforcement source told us, "It's kinda weak, and the D.A. is not going to prosecute a high profile case like this unless it's solid." That's why it was kicked back for further investigation.
Given the brutal nature of the attack, which the photos clearly show -- contusions on the face, swollen eyes, cut lip, bloody nose, bite marks on fingers and arm -- a felony domestic battery charge is virtually a done deal. That, however, is a less serious offense than making criminal threats.
The Court Says:
That's all? Joking, but here's what we think about the situation.
Grow up. You mean to tell me with all the money and fame, you do the same petty bullshit that we all do? This is dissapointing. And Rhi Rhi doesn't sound that innocent in all of it either.
So let me get this straight, Chris got a text about hooking up and an argument ensued. So it's safe to say Rhianna started the argument which escalated to the point where Chris Brown just hit her. Which wasn't a first.
So then she demands to be dropped off and on the way makes a "fake" phone call telling someone to have the police ready when she gets there... uhh what? Why make a fake phone call? Is that the bell for round 2? Chris heard it, and allegedlly said, "You are really fu**ed up now. I'm going to kill you." This is when Chris Breezy really went in on Rihanna doing most of the damage. Come on in an abusive relationship that's foreplay. Lol.
But seriously Rhi Rhi you could have sent a real text message to someone saying that and what do ya know, Chris wouldn't have heard a thing. No, you choose to make a "fake" phone call to piss your abusive boyfriend off. Yall know Ike was whoppin Tina's ass for less then that, remember when she didn't want to eat the cake? Smh.
As far as an ongoing abusive relationship, I've never seen or heard of any evidence of abuse. Rihanna always looks in top form to me, I still haven't seen these pictures but I did see A Thin Line Between Love and Hate when she tried to set Martin up. I just want to know how Rihanna got bite marks on her arm and fingers? This boy Chris fights like he dances.
Yea so they probably deserve each other as Rihanna is looking sketchy in the whole picture and Chris just looks stupid and abusive. "I made a fake phone call", Ha!

Akon Shows His Crib... A lot of money
50 Cent writes a poem to DJ Kaled entitled, "I Just Want To Tell You What A Psychic Told Me". In the poem 50 seems to take credit for the slashing of Kaled's tires, telling him I know where you be.
"I Just Want To Tell You What A Psychic Told Me".
Your car tires got stabbed out,
now you know I know where you be,
I just want to tell you what a psychic told me.
I know where your momma house at,
now look you can see(video of Khaled mother's house),
but I just want to tell you what a psychic told me.
I know where your momma work at,
now look at her sleep,
I just want to tell you what a psychic told me,
I'm not the kind of nigga you should fuck with B,
So 50 really goes in getting DJ Kaled's mother's house on video and paying a visit to her job where she was found sleeping, unaware of the ThisIs50.com team filming her.
That's kind of crazy and I really think we are seeing the resources he has going to work on the financial tip as it must seem like his people are everywhere and can get to anyone.
Kanye West Speaks On Gay Culture "Gay People Were Aliens. I Feel Like The Greatest Gay Representatives"Comments On Rihanna & Chris Brown
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
The new buzz (no pun intended) around the Chris Brown beating Rihanna incident, is that there was a text message that Chris Brown received from another woman about hooking up later that night.
Law enforcement sources confirm to TMZ Chris Brown received a text message from a woman while he was driving with Rihanna and that’s what started the confrontation that left Rihanna battered and bruised.
The details about Rihanna’s injuries are growing as the police revealed that they took pictures of her injuries that night. Chris Brown allegedly beat Rhianna to the point where both of her eyes were nearly shut, her nose and lips were bleeding and she had visible contusions on her face.
I think we have much more to learn about the case as it seems like Chris Brown would have had to seriously overreact to something.
From what I’ve heard Chris Brown and Rihanna have been over for about 2 weeks and their PR people thought a pre-grammy appearance would look good.
Supposedly Chris Brown is dating Keisha Chante, a Canadian r&b singer who will be playing Aaliyah in the upcoming movie. Picture below...
I don’t know and they don’t want to tell so I’ll speculate...
Chris Brown probably received a text message from a chick he was "hooking up" with, and that little ass Lamborghini leaves no room for secrets.
Rihanna most likely knew the deal, started bugging and you know how that goes, people get honest, then people get hurt. Now you should never hit a woman in any circumstance but... ladies please learn to keep your hands to yourselves.
It’s not clear what happened in that car, but if Chris Brown received the text message that initiated the whole incident, then Rihanna was most likely the most upset of the two.
Chris might have beat her because of her words but I doubt it. Most likely she started hitting him and he made the mistake of hitting her back instead of throwing her ass out.
Then again I don’t know what happened because I couldn’t see myself giving a girl the Mike Tyson, unless Herpes type 2 was involved, then I’m tight. Chris you not going to win with this one, next time just shake the bitch real hard, no harm, no foul.
I’m joking though its really not funny and from what the police say he put in work on her face, but what ya gonna do?
Thisis50.com reports,"Chris Brown is set to incur the wrath of hip-hop king Jay-Z over his alleged assault on R&B star RIHANNA. Brown was arrested on Sunday for felony battery after an incident with an as yet unidentified woman, reported to be Rihanna, in a vehicle in Los Angeles. And Jay-Z, who discovered and mentored Rihanna, was reportedly enraged upon hearing the allegations, warning of retributions for Brown. A source tells Us Weekly magazine, "He hit the roof. Chris is a walking dead man. He messed with the wrong crew."
I don't know what Hov is going to do about it, but what's really good with Jay Z and Rihanna?
Their relationship always seemed weird as it's public knowledge but is kept very confidential.
On the other hand, Rhianna missing the Grammy Awards and canceling her shows is hurting someone's pockets, probably Jay Z's.
So what is he going to do? Is this a beef between Jay Z and Chris Brown?
Who do you think is in a worse situation, Chris Breezy or Rhi Rhi?
Rick Ross Releases Statement To 50 Cent: "Your Career Is Over 50. Give It Up. 03 Is No Longer. You Released The Worse Sh*t I Ever Heard In My Career"
Rick Ross is a funny dude but I think he's about done.
In a recent XXL Mag interview Cam'ron revealed that he believed that Juelz Santana has an addiction to Syrup or Syzurp.
Cam states, “I knew him since he was 15 years old. He stayed with me for a while. Like, that was my man. That was my little dude. But he started drinking sizzurp. You understand what I’m saying? He was getting high. And we smoke enough weed. Why are we drinking Robitussin? And we’re not sick. You got to the studio, he got 100 Hawaiian Punches mixed with Robitussin, swerving. We’re not from Houston….
It’s not a New York Thing. And when you get caught up on that- and you know, I called his mother about it. I asked her about it. She know about it. She said she was asking him to stop. I called the people that were in his circle. They’d say, “Nah, Cam, it ain’t that much. It’s just a little bit.” That’s like saying you only smoking a little bit of crack. So, at the end of the day, I stopped speaking to him…”
So basically Cam is saying that the whole Dip Set fall out between him and Juelz was over Syzurp?
I don't know what he was drinking but Juelz was making hits last time Dip Set was poppin; about 2 or 3 years ago.
He seems cool to me. I knew when Lil Wayne was on the syrup too much but Juelz Santana never seems to look like he's drugged up.
So I don't know Cam you just got back and threw Juelz under the bus? Come on that's dirty even if it is an addiction.

Angel Lola Luv recording her new mixtape.
If I'm correct 50 Cent is behind her new project as she has credited him with introducing her to the music industry.
She's a beautiful model I'm sure you've seen her in Smooth Mag, and on the cover of King Mag.
She's trying to get her hustle on but I don't know. I guess I want to see more before I believe that she's anything more than eye candy. Not to offend, it's just that she's pretty and you know how the industry is.
One last thing... Is it fake or not? If you don't know what I'm talking about nevermind.
Rihanna- I Just Gave You Herpes... serves her right. It seems that Chris Brown fans are getting a little upset with the rumored transmitting pop star, Rihanna.

Rihanna Gave Chris Brown Herpes
Monday, February 9, 2009
Staten Island Advance reports:
“ESPN aired its lengthy interview with Alex Rodriguez on Monday evening and one of the topics that really got Rodriguez going was the tactics of Sports Illustrated reporter Selena Roberts. Rodriguez took off on Roberts, who co-wrote the Rodriguez piece with David Epstien, claiming that she resorted to questionable tactics when researching the story.
“What makes me upset is that Sports Illustrated pays this lady, Selena Roberts, to stalk me,” he told ESPN’s Peter Gammons.
Rodriguez went on to say that Roberts was tossed from his New York City apartment building, that she had to be escorted off of the University Miami campus by police when she sought out Rodriguez at the campus gym on Thursday and that she tried to break into his Miami home where his “children were sleeping”.
“There are some really respectable journalists that are following this lady off a cliff,” he said.
Roberts, as most would expect, immediately issued a statement through Sports Illustrated saying, “The allegations made by Alex Rodriguez are absurd” and affirmed that she’d never been to his apartment or his Miami home and that she’d never had any run-ins with police at the University of Miami campus.”
It looks like our celeb couple is going down the drain in front of our eyes.
Reports first surfaced that Chris Brown had been in an altercation with a woman and is now being charged with felony assault.
TMZ has revealed that the woman is Rihanna; Chris Brown's superstar girlfriend with hits like "Umbrella" and "Disturbia".
So no car accident but the situation is a train wreck as rumors are now spreading that the altercation stemmed from Rihanna giving Chris Brown Herpes!!!
What? Wow, I don't know but it just goes to show that just because they shining doesn't mean their not burning. I call that the "red carpet".
So both artists canceled their Grammy performances, Chris Brown turned himself in to LAPD and was released on $ 50 K bail.
According to bossip.com, Chris Brown is going round for round with Johnny Law as to exactly what happened the other night as he allegedly gave Rihanna a beating for giving him Herpes:
TMZ can confirm that Chris Brown just entered an LAPD station, where he turned himself in to police.
Chris is being investigated by the LAPD for an alleged domestic violence felony battery that occurred early this morning near Hancock Park in L.A. Police officials said earlier today they may arrest Brown when they found him. Well, now they know where he is.
According to the female victim — who cops refuse to identify — she and Chris got into an argument which turned violent. Cops say when they arrived to the scene, Brown had split, but the woman had “visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.”
Brown and his girlfriend Rihanna were together earlier last night, attending Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party — and both canceled their scheduled performances at tonight’s event.
Brown is currently being interviewed by detectives.
Breezy is back on the streets on 50K bail.

MTV News reports:
"It's official: With an introduction of "together again," Blink-182 confirmed that they are back in the Blink business at the Grammy Awards Sunday night (February 8) when they appeared onstage together for the first time in four years."
"Emerging to sounds of their 1999 hit "What's My Age Again," bassist Mark Hoppus, drummer Travis Barker — wearing a sling on his injured left arm — and estranged guitarist Tom DeLonge walked out together, with Hoppus joking, "Isn't it great to see the Jonas Brothers and Stevie Wonder back together again?" after the unlikely pairing performed a medley of the Bros' "Burning Up" and Wonder's "Superstition." Barker added, "We used to play music together, and we decided we're going to play music together again," as DeLonge stood awkwardly to the side. Hoppus also yelled, "Blink-182 is back!"
The band's official Web site also confirmed the good news, with a banner that read simply, "Summer 2009." A message from the band explained, "Hi. We're Blink-182. This past week there've been a lot of questions about the current status of the band, and we wanted you to hear it straight from us. To put it simply, We're back. We mean, really back. Picking up where we left off and then some. In the studio writing and recording a new album. Preparing to tour the world yet again. Friendships reformed. 17 years deep in our legacy. Summer 2009. Thanks and get ready."

Sports Illustrated reports that in 2003, when he won the American League home run title and the AL Most Valuable Player award as a shortstop for the Texas Rangers, Alex Rodriguez tested positive for two anabolic steroids, four sources have independently told Sports Illustrated.
Rodriguez’s name appears on a list of 104 players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball’s ’03 survey testing, SI’s sources say. As part of a joint agreement with the MLB Players Association, the testing was conducted to determine if it was necessary to impose mandatory random drug testing across the major leagues in 2004.
When approached by an SI reporter on Thursday at a gym in Miami, Rodriguez declined to discuss his 2003 test results. "You’ll have to talk to the union," said Rodriguez, the Yankees’ third baseman since his trade to New York in February 2004. When asked if there was an explanation for his positive test, he said, "I’m not saying anything."
Though MLB’s drug policy has expressly prohibited the use of steroids without a valid prescription since 1991, there were no penalties for a positive test in 2003. The results of that year’s survey testing of 1,198 players were meant to be anonymous under the agreement between the commissioner’s office and the players association. Rodriguez’s testing information was found, however, after federal agents, armed with search warrants, seized the ’03 test results from Comprehensive Drug Testing, Inc., of Long Beach, Calif., one of two labs used by MLB in connection with that year’s survey testing. The seizure took place in April 2004 as part of the government’s investigation into 10 major league players linked to the BALCO scandal -- though Rodriguez himself has never been connected to BALCO.
The list of the 104 players whose urine samples tested positive is under seal in California. However, two sources familiar with the evidence that the government has gathered in its investigation of steroid use in baseball and two other sources with knowledge of the testing results have told Sports Illustrated that Rodriguez is one of the 104 players identified as having tested positive, in his case for testosterone and an anabolic steroid known by the brand name Primobolan. All four sources spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the evidence.
Anticipating that the 33-year-old Rodriguez, who has 553 career home runs, could become the game’s alltime home run king, the Yankees signed him in November 2007 to a 10-year, incentive-laden deal that could be worth as much as $305 million. Rodriguez is reportedly guaranteed $275 million and could receive a $6 million bonus each time he ties one of the four players at the top of the list: Willie Mays (660), Babe Ruth (714), Hank Aaron (755) and Barry Bonds (762), and an additional $6 million for passing Bonds. In order to receive the incentive money, the contract reportedly requires Rodriguez to make extra promotional appearances and sign memorabilia for the Yankees as part of a marketing plan surrounding his pursuit of Bonds’s record. Two sources familiar with Rodriguez’s contract told SI that there is no language about steroids in the contract that would put Rodriguez at risk of losing money.

Bow Wow responds to Soulja Boy heartlessly; the intro to his diss track being a compilation of artists clowning Soulja Boy.
The track starts with a radio interview with Snoop Dogg dissin Soulja Boy’s single "Crank That" calling it "bullshit" , followed by a Cassidy mixtape verse that insinuates that Soulja Boy is as gimmick, a one hit wonder.
Bow Wow spits over the classic "Get Money" beat, going at the young rapper’s questionable ability to be a lasting artist in the game. Basically calling him a homosexual one hit wonder.
The track is called "This Is What They Think About You". Honestly, this is what most people think about Soulja Boy. He hasn’t really proven anything artistically but was a youtube phenomenon with his channel grossing over 400,448,420+ hits.
Bow Wow also released a 6 minute video talking reckless about Soulja Boy giving him a big dose of reality, breaking it down from his lack of respect in the hip hop community to his disrepectful comments about Nas killing hip hop.
Soulja Boy is really being sonned by Bow Wow throughout the video as he tells him that he needs to stay in his lane that's why people broke into his crib. Going as far as to tell Soulja Boy he isn't Gucci Mane or OJ The Juice Man
Bow Wow credits himself for opening the door for an artist like Soulja Boy, then promptly tells him that his career is over. Bow Wow, "...my stats don't match up with Soulja Boy stats. Your not in my league..." .
The video is a long overdue dose of reality for the "rich nigga" Soulja Boy, who hosts a series on youtube called "Rich Nigga Shit".
Check it out:
iSouljaBoyTellem; Soulja Boy’s sophomore album has been a serious flop selling approximately 45,000 copies so far. This following his debut album which moved 1 million units; mostly driven off the success of the "Crank That" single.
So Bow Wow’s right even though he isn’t my favorite rapper by the least, he is still 20 times better than Soulja Boy who should have taken his own advice and "got his feet" set before beefing with a hip hop name.
So it seems like Soulja Boy will be in the same boat as Rick Ross, the "bitten off more than you can chew" category.
During an interview on Power 105.1, hip hop mogul 50 Cent continued his pummeling of his weary opponent Rick Ross, or as we now know him "Officer Ricky".
Ed Lover conducted the interview in which 50 Cent addressed his recent Supreme Court victory where he received a judgment in his favor totaling $50,000,000.
At one point 50 Cent said, "Rick Ross is the easiest target I’ve encountered."
Ed Lover asked 50 about the origin of the beef to which 50 says he is totally oblivious to though Rick Ross claims it was a "look" he received that he didn’t like from 50 Cent.
While discussing the beef 50 Cent revealed that he has video of Rick Ross’s corrections graduation.
During the interview 50 Cent also reads the financial affidavit from his child support case with Tia Kemp. The summary of the affidavit is that Rick Ross’s net worth is approximately $1 million. 50 stating that he is actually in $300,000 of debt as his expenses eclipse his earnings.
50 also says there is a possibility that he could work with Trick Daddy who also has his problems with the "Boss" former CO Ricky Ross.
Check the interview:
