Chris Brown's Mum Wants Him to Discuss and 'Deal With' Rihanna Attack

May 5, 2011 (6:12 pm) GMT
Chris Brown's mother is urging the singer to open up about the events that led up to his brutal attack on Rihanna so he can 'learn to deal with it' and move past his anger problems.

The "Kiss Kiss" hit maker fell from grace after he was convicted of assaulting his then-girlfriend in February 2009.

He sat down for a candid chat with CNN newsman months afterward, but has refused to discuss the matter ever since - even losing his temper and smashing a window at the "" TV studios in March when he was quizzed about the incident by presenter Robin Roberts.

But Chris Brown's mum Joyce Hawkins - herself a victim of domestic violence - wishes her son would discuss his feelings about the attack because his troubles will continue to haunt him until he learns how to let go.

She tells Sister 2 Sister magazine, "I think he really needs to talk about the situation in itself, what actually happened to Rihanna... so that he can get that out for himself."

"He has to learn to deal with it and go on with his life. This is something that happened; it was a huge mistake... it was not good at all. But he is still a human being and we all make mistakes and we live and we go on with it. But he has to own it, deal with it and move on with his life."

Brown completed a court-ordered anger management course last year as part of his sentence. He was also placed on five years probation and handed six months of community service.
