Chris has released the following statement in regards to the Larry King interview snippets:
“There have been reports on the internet that I didn’t remember what happened that night with Rihanna. I want to try and set things straight.
That 30 seconds of the interview they used of me was taken from a one hour interview during which that same question was asked something like 4 or 5 times — and when you look at the entire interview you will see it is not representative of what I said.
The first four times – or how ever many times it was – I gave the same answer — which was that I didn’t think it was appropriate for me to talk about what happened that night. I said it was not right for me and it really wasn’t fair to Rihanna. The fifth time – or whatever it was – I just misspoke. I was asked, “Do you remember doing it?” and I said, “No.”
Of course I remember what happened. Several times during the interview, my mother said that I came to her right afterwards and told her everything. But it was and still is a blur. And yes, I still can’t believe it happened because it is not me or who I am or is what happened like anything I have ever done before.
As I have said several times previously, I am ashamed of and sorry for what happened that night and I wish I could relive that moment and change things, but I can’t. I take full responsibility for my actions. What I have to do now is to prove to the world that this was an isolated incident and that is not who I am and I intend to do so by my behavior now and in the future.”

R&B singer Chris Brown spoke exclusively with CNN about his arrest and sentence for assaulting Rihanna. You can watch the full interview on Larry King Live, Wednesday September 2nd at 9 p.m. ET.
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — Pop star Chris Brown has admitted guilt and apologized for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in February, but he does not remember hitting the singer, he told CNN’s Larry King.
Looking at police reports about the incident makes him feel like he’s reading about a stranger, Brown said in his first television interview since the arrest.
“I just don’t know what to think. I’m just like, wow,” Brown said. “It’s crazy to me.”
Brown, 20, said he still loves singer Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty.
But, he added, it is tough for him to look at the photo showing Rihanna’s battered face, the one image that might haunt and define him forever.
“When I look at it now, it’s just like, wow, like, I can’t believe that that actually happened,” Brown said.
He now has to keep his distance from Rihanna, because of a judge’s restraining order.
“We have to be like 10 yards away from each other,” Brown said.
The February argument began over an incident at a Beverly Hills party, according to Brown’s probation report.
An earlier, sworn statement by Los Angeles Police detective DeShon Andrews said the incident began when Rihanna found a text message on Brown’s cell phone from “a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with.”
The pair argued while in a sports car driven by Brown, the police statement said.
It went on to describe the assault in great detail, saying Brown punched Rihanna — identified in the statement as Robyn F. — numerous times and put her in a head lock, restricting her breathing and causing her to start to lose consciousness.
He threatened to beat her and kill her, according to the statement, and he bit her ear and her fingers.
The detective said Brown sent a text message nine days later, apologizing.
Rihanna’s injuries included cuts and bruises inflicted by a large ring on Brown’s right hand, which he used to punch her, the probation report said.
Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault on June 22. A plea deal kept him out of jail. A second felony charge, making criminal threats, was dropped. He was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community labor.
“It means he walks the straight and narrow for five years,” said Mark Geragos, Brown’s attorney.
“I’ve grown to love this kid like a son or a nephew. I have a high degree of confidence — I’ll say it now so that you can play it back if he ever does anything — but a high degree of confidence that he’s not going to do anything like this in the future.”
Brown called the sentence fair and agreed that everything comes with consequences.
“They want me to pick up trash, remove graffiti,” he said. “I’m a hard worker, it’s something I’m willing to do.”
Why did it happen? How did it happen?
Those are questions Brown and his mother, Joyce Hawkins, have been asking.
“Chris has never, ever been a violent person, ever,” Hawkins said.
However, CNN obtained a probation report for Brown last week that said he and Rihanna were involved in at least two other domestic violence incidents before the February attack for which Brown was sentenced.
“The first incident occurred in Europe about three months before the present offense,” the report said.
“The victim [Rihanna] and the defendant [Brown] were involved in a verbal dispute and the victim [Rihanna] slapped the defendant [Brown]. He responded by shoving her into a wall.”
Another incident happened in January, three weeks before the Hollywood incident, when Brown and Rihanna were visiting her home country of Barbados, the report said.
“The defendant [Brown] and the victim [Rihanna] were visiting Barbados and were driving a Range Rover loaned to them by a local dealership,” the investigator wrote. “They had an argument inside the car. The defendant [Brown] exited and broke the front driver and passenger side windows of the car.”
Brown’s mother remembers being shocked and upset when he came to her after the attack in February and told her about it.
She said her husband was abusive — and Brown knew it. “I used to be scared to go to bed,” the pop star said.
Brown said he is not blaming that history for the attack on Rihanna. But, he added, nobody taught him how to control his emotions and anger.
Rihanna calls Brown’s mother “Mom.” The two have spoken and seen each other periodically since the incident. The court order that prevents her son from seeing Rihanna does not extend to Hawkins.
“I let her know that I was very, very baffled, what had happened and apologized for my son, along with I’m so sorry what happened to you,” Hawkins said.
“And I didn’t know what — I didn’t know what else to say, and I gave her a hug and she hugged me as well.” Hawkins started sobbing at this point in the interview.
The singer has not seen Rihanna for a couple of months, and said the separation has been difficult, especially when it comes to her dating others.
“I definitely would be affected by it, but at the end of the day, I mean, we’re not together, so if she’s happy, I’m cool.”
But they will always be friends, Brown said.
Chris was seen leaving Larry King’s show August 28th/29th. Several sources say that Joyce, Chris’s mother attended the interview along with Mark Geragos, Chris’s attorney.
CNN confirms that the interview with Chris Brown will air on Sept. 2. Time is though unknown. I guess people will sit and watch TV like 8 hours in a row to not miss the interview. View More pictures Here.

Update – Chris Brown will appear on Larry King Live next week in his first interview since his arrest Last February for the brutal beating of his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
The interview has already been taped and will air Wednesday, September 2nd on CNN, according to ET.
Chris Brown has apologized to Rihanna (several times, he says) and ‘fessed up on video for the world to see.
But apparently the disgraced R&B star still had something to say, because he sat down with Larry King on Wednesday at CNN’s Hollywood headquarters for his first interview since his Feb. 8 arrest for assaulting his ex, E! News has learned exclusively.
And it was a no-holds-barred chat during which Brown answered every question put to him, according to our source. We assume some of King’s inquiries pertained to the 20-year-old’s probation report, which indicated that he got rough with Rihanna more than once over the course of their stormy relationship.
The insider tells E! that the interview will air sometime next week on Larry King Live. A network rep could not immediately be reached for comment.
Brown, 20, surprised guests at West Hollywood hot spot Guys and Dolls with an impromptu performance of Michael Jackson‘s “Dirty Diana,” Usmagazine.com has confirmed.
“He stood up on the back of the booth when the song came on, got a mic and not only sung, but danced his a– off,” clubgoer Cory Honickman tells Us. “It was insane and no one could look away. He is incredibly talented.”
When he finished, Brown told the crowd, “There was only one King of Pop. We love you, Michael.”

RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained these never-seen-before images of the R&B singer spray painting a wall — an act that is a misdemeanor crime in Los Angeles.
Brown was taking publicity shots by the Los Angeles River in downtown Los Angeles, which is close to his recording studio. Saggy-pant tagger Brown, who was accompanied by several friends, decided to spray paint a face and tag his nickname — “Breezy” — on the wall in an unplanned, against-the-law display of artistry.
This statement from Chris Brown mother was exclusively given to Chris Brown’s official fanclub website.
“I just want to say from the bottom of my heart thank you for your continued support. I’m sorry I wasn’t allowed to speak to anyone as this case was on going. I can now say this has been the most painful moment in my entire life, but knowing that you were still standing by Chris side in his time of need made this a little easier for us. Because of all your prayers God brought him through. I just want to say God has never failed me and never will. All moms and dads please stand by your children and pray for their goodness each and everyday. Chris and I love you so much, as the tears fall from my eyes and the pain lingers in my heart I still say thank you God, thank you thank you almighty God. If any of you wonder why I continue to speak of God it’s because I know no other way. I made a promise to him I would never be ashamed of him no matter where I am or who I talk to. You see this whole thing isn’t about Chris it’s about God. He wants to show all of you the goodness of him through Chris. Chris will be addressing all of his fans very soon. We love you so much and so does God.”
