These are some photos of Chris Brown performing in Cannes on 7/25 in a very packed club atmosphere; so it seems that Team Breezy is still enjoying a very successful career in spite of the fact that he feels like the whole world piled on him when he just happened to beat the crap out of Rihanna three years ago. Might I add that Chris is still a violent a-hole who continues to spread his mayhem. Most recently, he nearly started a fight at a club the night before the Billboard Music Awards, and then in June, he and Drake got into a huge fistfight at the Greenhouse club in NYC.
In an interesting development, both Chris and Drake have been sued for $16 million by the company that owns the club trademark for “glass-flinging, broken-bottle-swinging free-for-all in a crowded club,” which make sense since publicity from the fight resulted in the loss of a licensing deal, the temporary shuttering of the club, and the ongoing threat of a lost liquor license. NBA star Tony Parker, who was injured in the fight, has sued the club for $20 million dollars as well. Meanwhile, Chris continues his tour of terror unabated. Maybe it’s a bit unfair for me to speak of him with those words, but it’s clear that he hasn’t learned his lesson, and it’s only a matter of time before his violent ways erupt again (and again).
At the moment, however, Chris is still upset that he’s still known as the guy who beat up Rihanna. He’s reportedly aghast at the fact that Rihanna has spoken to Oprah about it during the interview that will air August 19, and he just doesn’t understand why things are being rehashed three years after the fact:
Chris Brown has seen the preview video of Rihanna’s upcoming interview with Oprah, Aug. 19, and he “feels horrible” because he and Rihanna are currently “more cool than anyone will know,” but he’s discouraged by his past mistake being rehashed over and over again, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively!
Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna back in 2009 will once again be front and center in the media when Rihanna’s interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter airs this Sunday August 19.
During the interview, Rihanna confesses and cries to Oprah: “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.”
A source close to Chris tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Chris saw the video clip. Of course he saw it, how do you think he feels? He feels horrible he did that.”
The source continues, “Watching [Rihanna's interview with Oprah] made him realize he made a big mistake and he’s been paying for it ever since. He’s working hard, in the studio, dancing, doing everything he can to rebuild his name and career and I think he been successful in doing all that. Y’all should be talking about his road to recovery and how he’s been a man and made s-t right. He and Ri are cool, more cool than anyone will know. She forgave the [boy] the minute that s-t went down, so what that say about their relationship?”

Yeah, Rihanna probably did forgive Chris for what he did, but she’s obviously very conflicted about what happened and could use some really good, extensive therapy. As for Chris, I don’t buy for a second that his reaction to the interview clip was to feel “horrible” about what he did. Rather, his reaction was probably to feel glass-smashingly angry about the fact that she would dare to talk about it in a public venue. As for the fact that we should respect his alleged “road to recovery” and how he’s “been a man” about it all? Bitch, please.
