Chris Brown Responds To Rihanna Interview

'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 private,' Brown says in a statement.

When MTV News correspondent Sway spoke with Chris Brown on Monday for “Chris Brown: The Interview” and addressed Rihanna’s upcoming “20/20″ sit-down — portions of which have already aired on “Good Morning America” — the “Forever” singer said he was confident that he had come clean about everything and there was nothing that could be said by his former girlfriend that would make him nervous.

“Honestly, because I have expressed my wrongs and there is nothing that could come out that’s like, ‘OK, this is something totally different than what we know,’ ” he told MTV News when asked. “I basically expressed how I feel, basically said what I’m wrong for.”

Brown contacted MTV News on Friday (November 6) to issue a statement about the portions of Rihanna’s interview that have emerged since that interview. He reiterated his stance on maintaining the pair’s privacy, but he also supported Rihanna’s decision to speak out about what occurred that February night. Brown wished Rihanna the best and once again admitted his mistake.

“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.”
