Chris Brown is speaking out about his tumultuous relationship with Rihanna in his new documentary, Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life.
He explains that they were both teenagers when they dated and things got serious quickly. Then, 8 months in, he decided to tell her about a woman he’d slept with before they got together. Since he’d previously denied it, she wasn’t happy about it. That’s when they begain fighting.
The night of the epic beatdown was the after Clive Davis’ Grammy event in 2009. The woman in question was at the party and approached them.
Everything seemed to escalate quickly after that to the point where Chris punched Rihanna in the face and she spit blood at him. They ended up breaking up and started dating other people.
Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life was released on Blu-Ray, DVD and Video on demand on August 8th.
