During a revealing interview with Oprah, the 24-year old entertainer admitted she’d hope people would be more understanding to Chris.
“I lost my best friend… everything I knew switched — switched in a night. And I couldn’t control that. It’s not easy to interpret on camera, not with the world watching.
I felt like the only person they hate right now is him. It was a weird, confusing space to be in.
Because as angry as I was — as angry and hurt and betrayed — I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help. And who’s going to help him? Nobody’s going to say he needs help, everybody’s going to say he’s a monster, without looking at the source. And I was more concerned about him.”
Oprah’s Next Chapter will air Sunday at 9pm on OWN. Meanwhile Chris Brown and Drake are facing a $16M lawsuit for a bar brawl last month.
Drake and Brown were sued for $16 million by a company with links to the club where the brawl took place. The suit blames the artists for the brawl and claims they are liable for what happened because they did nothing to stop it. The suit alleges that the brawl sullied the club’s name and harmed future business.
