Twenty-three-year-old Chris Brown confessed to Ryan Seacrest, that after his notorious 2009 assault on Rihanna, his chances at forgiveness were seemingly bleak. In a recent radio interview with the TV personality, Breezy announced that he is “eternally grateful” that Rihanna, afterall, pardoned him for his ill-tempered actions that ultimately left the Barbados princess physically scarred.
I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident and that time was probably the worst part of my life and being that she has and she’s a wonderful person I’m eternally grateful and thankful.
Currently working on his sixth studio project, the crooner professed to Ryan that he’s more than learned his lesson and has matured since the assault, which occurred four years ago, when he was 19.
I think for me that at age 18, 19, I was capable of writing and producing songs, so I was also capable of making the right choices. Being at that young age, I can tell you I was arrogant and definitely hotheaded. Everybody has a temper, but for me it was not knowing how to control it when I thought I had the world in my hands.
During the exclusive one-on-one, Brown gives full details on the recent valet incident, where Chris reportedly lashed out on a parking attendant. What wasn’t disclosed was the fact that the singer gave a generous tip of $100 to park his two cars:
It’s a charity event. It’s 5-dollar parking at the place… Before we went in, I gave the man a $100. We had two cars, it’s 5-dollar parking. Ok, do the math. When we came out, he was like ‘Nah, we need $20 for each car.’ I said ‘Sir, I just gave you $100.’ Same guy… by that time it was a situation.
