"Again, I still don’t know what happened, ’cause I haven’t had the opportunity to talk to Chris yet," Ne-Yo tells MTV. "But to take it to that level really hurt my heart."
"I just wanna sit down and talk to that dude and just explain if he doesn’t understand: That’s not something that’s excusable, bruh. You have to get a little smarter about whatever it is that’s going on in your relationship."
But Ne-Yo is not passing judgment, and he says not going to "crucify" Brown like "everyone else is."
Does it sound to you as if Ne-Yo is implying that he thinks Chris Brown did hit Rihanna?
And if so, why won’t he pick sides? Let’s wait until he talks to Brown and see what he has to say.
Watch the MTV video interview and decide.
