Breezy is revisiting the life damaging incident.
Get his side of the story.
Chris Brown’s career (for the most part) has recovered from the dark times in 2009 when he assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna, but that doesn’t mean that the incident still doesn’t haunt him to this day.
In a trailer for the pop&B singer’s forthcoming documentary, “Welcome to My Life,” which sees celebrity cameos and commentary from folks like Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Mary J Blige and DJ Khaled, Breezy admits that he contemplated taking his own life after the assault made him feel “like a monster.”
Describing his relationship with Rih as a “real-life rock stars” union, the singer gets super candid about his fall from fame after that dark 2009 night.
“It was like a fantasy. I went from being on top of the world, number one songs and kinda being like America’s sweetheart to being public enemy number one. I felt like a monster. . . .I was thinking about suicide and everything else.”
His fall from grace is something that was probably best seen by his mother, Joyce Hawkins, who also makes an appearance in the doc. “That was the worst day of my life and probably of his life. I felt like I was gonna lose my child,” she said.
At another point in the teaser, Breezy lets viewers in on his drive to keep things going, and it’s quite telling. “If there was ever a doubt in your mind Chris Brown was done, he’s finished. I wouldn’t bet on it.”
For someone that’s definitely doubted his ability to bounce back, I can at least give him that. Still, considering the singer’s recent tweets about Kehlani’s suicide attempt, Chris’ thoughts are looking mighty hypocritical right now.
