CHRIS BROWN says he learned a very important lesson after he beat up RIHANNA four years ago . . . quote, “You can lose it all.”
He adds, quote, “I’m not just saying fame or stardom because that’s not what it’s about. I’m talking about dignity [and] integrity. You know, you lose yourself in a way.”
Chris is NOT blaming his actions on his youth. He was a few months shy of his 20th birthday when that happened, and he says he was old enough to know better. He says, quote, “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.”
He also says he’s been working hard to earn back Rihanna’s trust and prove, quote, “how remorseful and sorry I was.” And he says he’s, quote, “eternally thankful and grateful” for her support.
