In his documentary, Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life, Brown details his former love affair with Rihanna and his version of went down that fateful night after Clive Davis’ Grammy party.
“I just think we were like the perfect and bad combination,” Brown said of their relationship at the time.
The singer says he was 15 when he first met Rihanna at a Z100 show in New York City. Intrigued by her beauty and exotic, island accent, Brown got acquainted with Rihanna and the two later formed a friendship which would blossomed into a relationship after several months.
In the course of their relationship things got quite physical between them, Brown says, after he confessed to having sex with another woman prior to the relationship.
“My trust totally was lost with her. She hated me. After that I tried everything. She didn’t care, she just didn’t trust me after that. From there, it just went down hill because it will be fights. It will be verbal fights, physical fights as well, mutual sides,” he said. “This is the first I get to say anything and like I said, I still love Rihanna but I’m just gonna to be honest. We would fight each other. She would hit me and I would hit her. It never was okay.”
The documentary also features testimonies from celebrities including Terrence J, DJ Khaled, and Mike Tyson that attest to the chemistry and tension between the two superstars and what it’s like to be young, famous and in love.
