Chris Brown Says He Felt Suicidal in ‘Welcome to My Life’ Documentary Trailer
Chris Brown is sharing his trials and tribulations in the trailer for Welcome to My Life, a documentary about his rise in the R&B music industry.
The clip shines a light on Breezy’s rise to fame as a teenager as well as his downfall after he physically assaulted Rihanna in February 2009.
“I went from being on top of the world, No. 1 songs, being kind of like America’s sweetheart to being Public Enemy No. 1,” he says in an old interview shown in the clip. “I felt like a f—ing monster. I was thinking about suicide, I wasn’t sleeping, I barely ate.”
Several artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Jamie Foxx, Usher and DJ Khaled share their thoughts on the Breezy’s life and career. Brown’s mother, Joyce Hawkins, also makes an appearance and talks about the turmoil she endured throughout his trials.
But along with his downfall, there is also triumph. The trailer shows how the 26-year-old singer and dancer rose back from the scandal.
“If there was ever a doubt in your mind Chris Brown was done, he was finished…I wouldn’t bet on it,” he says.
No word yet on when Brown’s documentary will be available for viewing. But the video’s description (via Vimeo) promises that more details will be unveiled “soon.”
