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..."
