Yes, he has admitted it. That is not the question. The question is how is he going to pay for what he did. Rhianna obviously has battered womans syndrome and that's why she went back to him. With abusers, they can be extremely charming for a period of time (its called the honeymoon phase) and then they snap and beat them up. It makes some women want to forgive because they have seen the good side and crave that, plus the guy promises to change and go to anger management like Chris Brown has done now. But the sad thing is, it always ends up happening again. I have NEVER heard a story with physical abuse that had a nice ending with a guy who stopped. Also, now theres the question of if Rhianna hit him first. Even if it was just a slap, he could get out of it because she would have provoked him to "defend" himself. But its obvious that it was so much more than that. I see Chris Brown as being the next OJ Simpson. Just wait and see. I pray that it never happens but who knows what he's doing to Rhianna behind closed doors. She's in the brainwashed stage where she thinks hes all she can get, she has no self esteem, and she thinks she deserves what she gets. Thats why shes back with him. He has publically apologized saying that he is "deeply saddened by the events that have transpired." lol what a joke. I hope he goes to hell. I already broke his CDs into a million pieces and ran them over.
