Chris Brown looked back and felt deep regret over what happened:

“I really hit her, with a closed fist, I punched her, and busted her lip. And when I saw it I was in shock,” he said. “From there, she just spit in my face, spitting blood on my face, so it enraged me even more, it’s a real fight in the car … a lot of the times I just look back at that picture and I’m just like, that’s not me bro, that’s not me. I hate it to this day. That’s going to haunt me forever.”

Chris Brown details his romance with Rihanna from the time they met — when they were just teenagers — to the time their relationship became destructive. Brown said after he told Rhianna that he slept with another woman early in their relationship, things took a turn for the worse.

“After that, my trust was lost with her. She hated me after that,” he admitted. “I tried everything, she didn’t care. She just didn’t trust me after that. From there, it just went downhill because there were too many verbal fights, physical fights as well. Mutual sides. We would fight each other. She would hit me, I would hit her and it never was okay.”

Pointing out that they both realized how dysfunctional their relationship had become, Brown continued, “There was always a point where we’d talk about it like, ‘What the f–k are we doing? Like, ‘I don’t like you slapping me.’ If I go on stage I got a scratch on my face and I gotta explain it like, ‘Oh, no I fell.’ If you got a scar or a bruise you gotta put makeup on. I’m not ever trying to put my hands on any female.”
