Chris Brown Tapes Video Apology To Rihanna

Was2416947Chris Brown has made a public apology for an incident in February that sent his then girlfriend, Rihanna, to a hospital.

“Since February, my attorney has advised me not to speak out, even though ever since the incident I wanted to publicly express my deepest regret and accept full responsibility,” the singer said in a two-minute clip posted on his official YouTube channel on Monday. “Although I will do some interviews and answer some questions in the future, I felt that it was time that you heard directly from me that I am sorry.”

Brown pleaded guilty last month to one count of felony assault stemming from the Feb. 8 incident, where the singer allegedly beat Rihanna (real name Robyn Fenty), following a pre-Grammy party.
