Chris Brown’s stepfather called in to IPower 92 today to defend himself against allegations that he was abusive to Chris Brown’s mother. He claims that he never put his hands on Chris’s mom Joyce and that the story was fabricated. He also described Chris as an angry and hyper child. Chris’s aunt (his mom’s sister) then calls in upset with the stepfather for going on national television lying and alludes that he is getting paid by the media. As far as Chris, she claims he isn’t worried about the endorsement deals or the fame. “That doesn’t phase him. That’s not the problem. It’s just him being made out to be a monster that he’s not. That bothers him more than anything else.
She also says she can’t disclose his location because people (the press) are vicious and she’s trying to protect his safety. When asked why he’s been silent for this long she says they have been advised to keep quiet:
“Politics are Politics and no one is allowed to say this or that but I am just sick of everything. You know the kid is being killed. He’s still a kid and he’s not a bad person at all. Chris is a very loving person to everyone that knows him. Everybody makes mistakes. He would never attack anyone just because. And he doesn’t justify what he did but he would never [inaudible] I think of him as my kid (starts crying) Everyone is killing this kid and he is devastated. No one knows his story. He can’t speak his story because of political bullshit but they will bring out his story probably today or tomorrow. We are not trying to bash Rihanna or anyone but they are two kids in a relationship and things happen. It’s totally one sided…”
“He’s very passive of someone ridiculing him or doing something. He’ll sit back and sit back but a person will only sit back for so long when someone is doing something to him. It’s always two sides to a story and just know that Chris Brown would never attack anyone for no reason. It doesn’t justify anybody doing anything but it’s a one sided story. Every day it’s a new lie. There is something different added to the story that makes no sense at all. [Like the herpes situation] That is just totally crazy that makes no sense and we don’t even know where that came from. Someone obviously made that up and it had nothing to do with anything. That is so false. It’s just really killing me that the media circus is killing everything that he’s worked so hard for.
“That’s the nature of the business, they love you today and hate you tomorrow…” – TT Torrez

♥ Chris Brown’s Sister, Friends Speak Out: ‘He’s Always Been A Good Boy, Never Violent’
‘He feels very bad that something like this has happened,’ Brown’s stylist says of alleged altercation with Rihanna.
Representatives for Chris Brown and Rihanna have not spoken publicly about the alleged altercation that took place between the two last weekend. But both Brown’s older sister, Lytrell “Tootie” Bundy, and his wardrobe stylist, Mike “B” Bogard, spoke about the situation in articles published Wednesday (February 11).
Brown’s sister told Extra, “He’s always been a good boy — never violent.” When asked how he’s handling the situation, she said, “He’s doing good. He’s coping.”
“Chris is all right,” Bogard told People.com. “He’s a good kid. He feels very bad that something like this has happened.”
Bogard expanded a bit when talking to Vibe, saying, “Chris is a very good kid. I do not know the situation in its full entirety because I was not in the car [with them that night], but from what I know, Chris and Rihanna’s relationship … it was real. They loved each other.”
Sources have told MTV News that Brown and Rihanna’s relationship had grown rocky in recent weeks. Brown has said in the past that his former stepfather, Donnelle Hawkins, abused his mother, although Hawkins denied that charge on Tuesday.
When asked how Brown is doing, Bogard said, “He’s better off than me if I, or anybody else, was in his situation. Chris is a blessed child. We’ll leave it in God’s hands.”
People quoted an unidentified friend of the singer as saying, “You can tell everybody that Chris really feels bad about the whole situation, about it coming out the way that it happened, the way he went about it, the way she went about it … it’s just a wack situation.”
The friend added that the situation was “not as bad as everybody is trying to gas it up to be,” and was uncertain whether Brown and Rihanna have spoken since the incident.
“I can’t say,” the friend said. “Maybe they don’t want anybody to know whether they’ve spoken or not. You have to wait for Chris to say something.”
