Well, of course he does. D'uh.
Even though he had told MTV that "there is nothing that could come out that's like, 'OK, this is something totally different than what we know," in regards to Rihanna's interview, now, after the fact, he has issued a statement asking for privacy:

While I respect Rihanna's right to discuss the specific events of February 8, I maintain my position that all of the details should remain a private matter between us," he said in the statement. "I do appreciate her support and wish her the best. I am extremely sorry for what I did, and I accept accountability for my actions. At this point, I am taking the proper steps to learn about me and grow from my mistakes. I only hope that others in similar situations can learn from our experience as well. Abuse of any kind is always wrong. The rest I leave it to God." [Source: MTV]
In the second half of Rihanna's 20/20 interview she revealed some of the more harrowing details of the February attack, which left her bloody and bitten by the hands and teeth of Chris Brown.
What do you think bothered him? (Not that anybody cares how he feels.)
A) The reason for the attack: I caught him in a lie, and he wouldn't tell the truth. And I wouldn't drop it. I couldn't take that he kept lying to me, and he couldn't take that I wouldn't drop it. And ... it was ugly.
B) His possession: He had no soul in his eyes. Just blank. He was clearly blacked-out. There was no person when I looked at him. It was almost as if he had nothing to lose. He had so much to lose. It wasn't the same person that says I love you. It definitely wasn't those eyes. No, we weren't even drunk

C) The details from her perspective: I fended him off with my feet. I was battered, I was bleeding, I was swollen in the face. So there was no way of me getting home, except ... to get out of the car and walk. Start walking in a gown, in a bloody face. So I really don't know what my plan was.
