Chris Brown Appears on Larry King to Discuss Rihanna Beating

Chris Brown sat down with Larry King in his first interview since his February 8 arrest for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, pop star Rihanna.

In a “no-holds barred” interview that will air next week, the R&B crooner spoke to the talk show host at CNN’s studios in Los Angeles. Brown was accompanied by his mother Joyce Hawkins and his attorney Mark Geragos.

I just want to say from the bottom of my heart thank you for your continued support. I’m sorry I wasn’t allowed to speak to anyone as this case was on going. I can now say this has been the most painful moment in my entire life, but knowing that you were still standing by Chris side in his time of need made this a little easier for us. Because of all your prayers God brought him through.”
