Chris Brown Upset With Oprah, Says She ‘Could’ve Been More Helpful’
After spending months being the brunt of public disdain, singer Chris Brown has his own bone to pick, and its with media mogul Oprah Winfrey. The 20-year-old stated that he was unhappy with Winfrey's comments regarding his altercation with ex-girlfriend Rihanna. "He will hit you again," the talk show queen warned during an episode chronicling the former couple's physically abusive relationship.
Brown said that he watched episode, which aired one month after his assault on the Barbadian beauty. "It was a slap in my face," he said. "I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school. She could've been more helpful like 'ok I'm going to help both of these people out.'" Winfrey went on and aired an additional episode on domestic violence amongst teens, inspired by Brown's assault on Rihanna.
Now hoping to put the ordeal behind him, Brown has come to terms with the violent incident but noted that he still loves Rihanna. "I never fell out of love with her," he said. "That just wouldn't go away." The Virginia native went on to say that he was thankful a short-lived reconciliation between he and the 21-year-old. Since their split, Brown also wrote a song 'Changed Man,' for his ex, which leaked to the Internet last month.
In accordance with his plea deal Brown was sentenced to five years probation, will complete 180-days of community labor and must stay 100 yards away from the popstar. "The law is the law," he said of the sentence. "I am relieved to put everything behind me. [The stay-away order] might have been a little harsh. [Rihanna] knows me, and I know her more than anybody. It's hard."
The singer is currently back in Virginia to fulfill his probationary obligations. His forthcoming 'Graffiti' album is due in stores this year.
