Chris Brown apologizes, seeks counseling...
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - R&B star Chris Brown, who was arrested
last weekend on suspicion of attacking a woman widely believed to be
the pop star Rihanna, said on Sunday he was "sorry and saddened" about
the incident, and was seeking counseling.
The 19-year-old performer of such chart-toppers as "Run It!"
and "Forever" has been in hiding since the alleged fracas with his
girlfriend in a rented Lamborghini.
He hired a public relations company that specializes in crisis
management to issue a five-sentence statement in which he also said
many media and blog reports have been wrong.
"Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over
what transpired," he said. "I am seeking the counseling of my pastor,
my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God's help, to
emerging a better person."
He did not mention his father, who was quoted on Friday as telling People magazine that his son was "very remorseful."
Police and prosecutors have not officially disclosed that
Rihanna was the victim of Brown's attack just after midnight on
February 8. But unidentified police sources told the Los Angeles Times
that Rihanna was the victim, and numerous media outlets have reported
the same information.
Brown turned himself in to police, and he was booked on
suspicion of making criminal threats against a woman. The Los Angeles
Police Department is still investigating, and a spokeswoman for the
L.A. District Attorney's Office said a decision has not yet been made
on whether to file charges.
Celebrity websites and magazines have reported that the
incident happened shortly after Brown left a Beverly Hills party with
Rihanna as his passenger. The 20-year-old native of Barbados suffered
bruises on her face and a split lip, according to several reports.
Brown added in his statement: "Much of what has been speculated
or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I
would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues
are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any
messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else.
Those posts or writings under my name are frauds."
Despite the serious nature of the allegations, many of Brown's
showbiz comrades have defended him. Most recently, hip-hop star Kanye
West said, "Can't we give Chris a break?" during a taping of VH1's
"Storytellers" on Friday.
Report: Police 'To Probe Rihanna/Brown Relationship History'...
Los Angeles police are reportedly investigating the possibility of a history of heated rows between Rihanna and Chris Brown in the wake of the R&B star's alleged attack on his girlfriend at the weekend.
The probe comes as it was revealed by police sources that the
"Umbrella" hitmaker was forced to wear an eye patch last year, after
suffering an alleged scratched cornea.
Brown was arrested on Sunday and charged with making criminal
threats after a heated exchange in Los Angeles that morning, hours
before he and Rihanna were due to attend the Grammy Awards.
Underwood: 'Stop Spreading Ridiculous Brown/Rihanna Rumors'...
Country star Carrie Underwood is urging internet gossips to stop speculating about Chris Brown's alleged fight with his girlfriend Rihanna and "lay off" the troubled couple.
Speaking to Usmagazine.com, she says, "They were fine at the Grammy party.
"I don't think anybody actually knows what happened. You hear a new
one (rumor) every five minutes, and some of them are getting
ridiculous. I really hope everyone will lay off and just let everybody
who's involved figure out everything first."
Another Grey's update for a good friend of mine, you know who you are ;)...
Contrary to reports, Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight will not be leaving Grey's Anatomy, says show creator Shonda Rimes.
"That was a very interesting rumor," she told People.
"That was absolutely taken out of context," said Rhimes, referring to the comment Grey's
star James Pickens, Jr. made about Heigl and Knight's departure.
"Things happen, and … I think rumors become fact very easily. And you
know I don’t like to tell you what’s going to happen on the show — but
that is a rumor."
Octuplets publicist quits over threats...
Wow! I never thought I would be posting an article about this lady... Since when is she considered a "celebrity"?
A Los Angeles publicist said she and her husband decided Saturday to
stop representing Nadya Suleman, the mother of octuplets, because of
Joann Killeen, president of the Killeen Furtney Group, told the Los
Angeles Times she and her husband, Mike Furtney, put their dogs in a
kennel because of the threats. She said Los Angeles police told her
Friday the threats were the most intense they had heard of since the
O.J. Simpson trial.
"They hope I die, they hope my business goes under, they want
to rip her uterus out," Killeen said. "They say I should be
anesthetized and put down like a dog."
Suleman, 33, already had six children conceived through in
vitro fertilization when she gave birth to octuplets in January. News
reports soon revealed that Suleman is single, unemployed and living
with her parents.
"The American public have just lashed out," Killeen told the
Times. "I think it has to do with the economy, healthcare -- there's
not a lot of jobs, people are unemployed and are trying to take care of
Killeen said she has been swamped with telephone calls, mail and e-mail, most of it angry.
Honestly??! First up, why does she need a publicist, she's just a regular person who wanted to have lots of kids. Now she has 14, I really dont see the big problem here! There are many families in our world who have a lot of kids! I know she lied about a few things, like welfare, but come on, seriously?
