What would drive a man to hit his girlfriend or wife?????
In a 2007 interview with Giant magazine, Chris Brown revealed that his mother had been physically abused by his stepfather.
"He used to hit my mom," the singer, who was arrested Sunday night for allegedly assaulting girlfriend Rihanna, told the magazine. "He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, 'I'm just gonna go crazy on him one day . . . ' I hate him to this day."
In the same interview, he said he had studied martial arts, which he used to defend himself once in a fight with several classmates.
Brown said after his mother broke up the fight, he urged her not to go to the police. "Don't go to no cops pressing no charges," he reported begging her, "like we don't do that in the hood."
Way to go hood rat!
