CHRIS BROWN CLEARS UP “LARRY KING” ASSAULT RESPONSE
Chris Brown has responded to accusations made from his “Larry King Live” 30-second preview which aired today (August 31) showing his inability to recall his assault on Rihanna and said viewers should watch the entire interview before making judgements.
“There have been reports on the Internet that I didn’t remember what happened that night with Rihanna,” a statement from Brown read. “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 four or five times — and when you look at the entire interview, you will see it is not representative of what I said. The first four times — 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 — 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, nor is what happened like anything I have ever done before.” (MTV)
