Chris Brown Releases Statement, Is “Saddened”

Chris Brown has issued a statement in response to the dramatic rollout of events that started with alleged attack of one-tiime 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,” the statement states.

Brown also took time to dunk and diffuse much of the speculation that his occurred in the media and the blogs.

"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."

The statement never refers to Rihanna directly.

Brown’s father recently stated that his son was concerned for Rihanna’s well-being.

Clinton Brown, his father, said, "He's reflecting on this situation. He's very remorseful. He's very concerned about the situation he wants to make sure that (Rihanna is) okay."

The younger Brown was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats and released on $50,000 bail. He is expected to appear in court on March 5.
