“I ain’t a monster.”
That’s Chris Brown’s message to his fans as he speaks out for the first time on camera since his February arrest after allegedly beating Rihanna. In a homemade video shot by Brown and his friend Bow Wow the singer talks directly to the camera.
“Everybody that’s haters, they just been haters. All my real fans, I love you all, I ain’t a monster.”
Brown allegedly attacked Rihanna the night before the Grammy Awards after leaving Clive Davis’ Annual Pre-Grammy Party together. Pictures later surfaced of a badly beaten Rihanna and both parties have kept relatively mum until now. The next court hearing in the case is tomorrow.
When Showbiz Tonight contacted Chris Brown’s representative for a statement we received “no comment."
What do you think? Should he have spoken out now or waited until his court case was settled?
For more of Chris Brown’s video- and if he might be planning a comeback- tune in to Showbiz Tonight at 11pm Eastern and Pacific on HLN. Don’t miss it!
