In the last nine months, Chris Brown has used the media, YouTube and Twitter to discuss what happened Feb. 8; now, its Rihanna‘s turn.
The Barbadian beauty, on the promotional tour for her new album, Rated R, will speak on the brutal beating she endured at the hands of her ex on Thursday’s Good Morning America, and Friday’s 20/20.
Rihanna, born Robyn Fenty, has been somewhat of a recluse since the incident occurred, as it took her more than three months to step on a red carpet after the dastardly incident; Thursday will mark her first public appearance since the fateful evening.
After a pathetic Aug. 31 appearance on Larry King (in which he claimed not to remember the assault), Brown, who begins a “fan appreciation” tour Nov. 14, finally talked about the incident in an interview with New York radio station Hot 97 last month.
“At the end of the day, I’m human,” he said. “Of course you’re gonna have your thoughts and opinions. I’m not gonna say they’re wrong. But at the end of the day, it’s not right to judge someone. People make mistakes all the time.
“At the end of the day, I’m sorry for what I did, whatever it is,” Brown said. “Only me and shorty know what went down in the car, it’s between us.”
Brown was sentenced to five years’ probation and ordered to do 180 days of community labor as a part of the plea deal he made in June for his assault, which took place in in Hancock Park, California. The restraining order issued to Brown orders to keep his distance from her for five years.
