In the video Chris said that, “I have told Rihanna countless times and I am telling you today that I am truly, truly sorry and that wasn’t I able to handle the situation both differently and better.” and that “What I did was unacceptable, 100 percent. I can only ask and pray that you forgive me, please. I hope that others learn from my mistake.”

Chris said that he has spoken with his mother and minister to further understand why the February incident happened. Chris said in the past that he witnessed his mother getting beaten by his dad.

Chris was charged with two felonies and was facing jail time, but he reached a plea deal with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office and was sentenced on June 22nd to 180 days of community labor and ordered to enroll in a domestic violence counseling program.
