Celebrity Love: Chris Brown's Sentence Too Strict For Rihanna
An advance clip of the interview has sparked controversy by suggesting Chris answered one of Larry King's questions by stating that he does not remember beating Rihanna. Chris has issued a formal statement through Access Hollywood that indeed he does remember the incident, but it was "a blur" that still shocks him. He states:
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'...I still can't believe it happened because it is not me or who I am.
"Wasn't fair to Rihanna"...is Chris Brown expressing concern for her? Yes. Surrounding his sentencing we'd heard that the pair wanted to stay in each other's lives and planned to protest the judge's orders to stay separated. This morning Limelife reports that Chris has confirmed his longing for Rihanna by saying that not being able to see her has been "difficult." Referring to Rihanna dating other men he said, "I definitely would be affected by it." And according to Ace Showbiz via People, Chris has confessed, "I never fell out of love with her. That just wouldn't go away." YourTango: 5 Tips to Move On From a Painful Breakup
