Chris Brown says incident with Rihanna should remain 'private'

chris-brown.JPGChris Brown has released a statement in which he says the details of the incident with Rihanna should remain a private matter between the two of them.

In a statement to MTV, Chris Brown said, "While I respect Rihanna's right to discuss the specific events of February 8, I maintain my position that all of the details should remain a private matter between us. I do appreciate her support and wish her the best."

"I am extremely sorry for what I did, and I accept accountability for my actions. At this point, I am taking the proper steps to learn about me and grow from my mistakes. I only hope that others in similar situations can learn from our experience as well. Abuse of any kind is always wrong. The rest I leave it to God."

Chris Brown also told MTV correspondent Sway there was nothing that could be said by his former girlfriend that would make him nervous.

Hmph. That's probably because she's already said everything that would make him nervous. Furthermore, while we realize Chris Brown has to attempt to rehab his image after beating his girlfriend all to hell, keeping the details of domestic abuse "private" or quiet or between the two parties involved is exactly NOT what victims should be doing. Domestic violence should be reported and we don't think Chris Brown's best move right now is to say that abuse is something that should remain "private."
