Chris Brown compared himself to Tiger Woods in a radio interview Wednesday, saying both him and the golf icon deserve second chances from the public for their mistakes, and RadarOnline.com has it for you to hear.
The R&B star told the Mojo In The Morning radio show “nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on somebody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them.
“Whatever his personal life is and I think this goes for me and him — his personal life is his personal life,” the convicted woman batterer said of Woods, who admitted to cheating on his wife Elin during his televised apology last Friday. “Like they might be a fan, or might support what they’re doing but like if he plays golf, like that’s his sport, that’s his hobby, that’s his love, that’s what people love him for. They don’t love him for the other stuff that they talking about.
Brown — whose clean cut-image was tarnished after he beat then-girlfriend Rihanna last year — drew parallels between himself and Woods.
“I think, even with me, like I do music, I sing songs, like I’m an entertainer, I’m a performer, but people make mistakes,” the Forever singer told the show. “So my hat is off to him — I support him, I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing, cause he is the best at it.
Brown was sentenced to five years of probation and ordered to do 180 days of community labor as a part of the plea deal he made in June 2009 for assaulting the Barbadian superstar; a restraining order commands him to keep his distance from her for five years.
