The more we followed the Chrihanna scandal, post the beating in 2009, the more it became crystal clear that these two were destined to get back together…if they ever broke up in the first place. I mean, who lets their ex hop on a track talking about oral?! Then there was the Oprah interview. And after that, the ridiculous documentary of Chris detailing his love for two women. We all knew what was up. And we were right. Though we saw it coming, we certainly weren’t privy to how it all went down…until now.

In a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on KIIS-FM, Chris Brown opened up about winning Rihanna back.

“I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident and the time was probably the worst part of my life. Being that she has [forgiven me] and she’s a wonderful person, I’m eternally grateful and thankful.”

“People are entitled to their opinions. I can’t go around blaming. Being at that young age, I can tell you I was arrogant and definitely hotheaded.”

Though it would seem Chris has calmed down some, his Twitter beefs and altercation with Frank Ocean would make it seem that he still has more work to do. But Chris claims he’s in a much better place.

“I’m cool. I’m happy. I’m focused. I’m a lot calmer. Everyone has anger issues and days they don’t feel like being bothered. Sometimes it comes off the wrong way. I’m learning how to deal with it and how to channel that into my music.”

I could shade this 24 year old and ya’ll might call me crazy for saying this–but I’ll be danged  if I don’t think he isn’t lying. Perhaps, it’s just me but this is probably the most heartfelt, genuine thing I’ve heard Chris say about the domestic violence incident. For so long, he was on the defensive, sounding angry and reinforcing what we already assumed about him. This is the first time I can recall him owning up to his foolishness. This was a pretty good way to come back to the interview circuit, on the humble. Homeboy still has work to do but I don’t believe he’s totally beyond reform.

What do you think about Chris’ statement? Does it sound sincere to you? Do you think he’s changed?

    She just loves his big………

  • minerva

    I’ve only heard about him hitting a woman ONE time ; I see no pattern !
    cb was-still is- young and dumb; allow him to mature….
    ANYONE can snap at anytime– more so when provoked — I know that I have…….
    this is not an excuse; it is what it is; we’re human and we err………..

  • mik bailey

    If he was so remorseful and wanted her back, why was he dating someone else – who he dumped just before getting back with Rihanna?!

  • Hazel

    I’ve noticed that she looks most happy when she is with him. She is literally glowing when she is around him. She seems…softer. She is crazy in love with this guy. Hey, who am I to judge. Is she likes it, I love it.

    • mil bailey

      I agree; she is definitely in love. Sadly he doesn’t look the same. Have to wonder if he’s using her to rebuild his image. Time will tell.

    Could work who knows? Odds are that it won’t. We might have the new Whitney and Bobby on our hands here. She needs to maintain the FOL (Fear of Loss) at all times. Letting him know that if he fycks up again won’t be no coming back. And you gotta mean that ish.

  • space

    He growing up made his mistake now let him live!

  • bluekissess

    I think you (author) should find better material to write about. This isn’t informative or inspirational. It’s a repeat of all the hundreds of articles written about this clown.

  • kierah

    He’s saying all the right things, but his behavior seems to tell a different story.

  • Paula

    I just wish them all the best….I knew that these two would get back together.

    I believe he means what he is saying and wish them the best, If they want to be together then that is on the two of them. Chirs & Rihanna are young adults and only they have to live with and deal with any consequences of the decisions that they both make in their lives. It is their business and non of mine’s cause I don’t personally know them, I only hope for both their sakes that the same thing does not happen again. Case closed.

    he must have been trying in private because in public…

    I don’t know too many reformed women beaters. Most men that beat women are very charismatic and can manipulate people’s feelings. That is what I chalk this up to. Sorry Breezy I call BS

    I think anyone can change with the proper tools, support, and attitude.

    OMG, can they do something new like have a baby or get married.

    • Chey

      You are crazy af! That’s the LAST thing that they need to do.

      • MLS2698

        But it was funny, though. If they are sooo much into each other ( enough to conquer that arse whooping), they should get married, then have a baby. In that order.

    I am NOT a Chris Brown fan. I can openly admit that. And I have been very staunch in my opinion of him. Mainly because of his actions and attitude AFTER the infamous incident. He seemed to show no remorse and took no responsibility for his actions. After hearing this interview I will honestly say my opinion has not changed but it does give me hope. I am not gonna be so quick to say he has become a new man but this is the first time I’ve heard any sincerity, regret and remorse from him. It shows growth and I look forward to seeing him continue to do so.

      Bull***t.

      I know this is a little off topic, but I was at the mall the other day, and this young couple was shopping. So, I noticed the girl was hanging all over the guy ( literally had both arms around his neck) while he acted as if he was on a solo shopping spree. I know I was just walking through and doing my own browsing, but during that time, this guy didn’t even act like this woman was with him until he wanted to know what color tie looked best on him. Huh? This kind of non-reciprocated PDA is what I see in every pic they take of Chris and Ri……unless they are leaving the ones out where he responds to her in loving manner. IDK. Is it just me, or what? I just can’t stand to see women acting all enamored while a dude is just……whatever.

      • Chey

        You are absolutely correct!

        • MLS2698

          About being off topic, or the PDA? LOL

  • TRUTH IS

    Shoot, if they like it, I love it

    • Chey

      Disgusting.

      • TRUTH IS

        Disgusting because I cant sway them what to do with their lives….you are pathetic!

        • Chey

          You, ma’am, are pathetic. For supporting such f**kery.

          • TRUTH IS

            Using my comment to diss me…..lols….I never said i supported them….if they are happy who am I to complain?

  • TRUTH IS

    Shoot, if they like it, I love it

No thanks
