Chris Brown says stepfather beat him and his mother

Source: latimesblogs.latimes.com

chris_brown_bad_beta_sad_cryiing_swolen.jpgChris Brown is, in some ways, an unlikely person to be accused of domestic violence.

He's spoken openly about his alleged experiences with abuse as a child at the hands of his stepfather.

In 2007, Brown admitted in an interview with U.S. magazine Giant, his family had been abused by his stepfather.

"He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, 'I'm just gonna go crazy on him one day....' I hate him to this day."

And he told talk show hostess Tyra Banks, on her show, that his childhood abuse experience had made him respectful of women:

"It affected me … especially toward women, I treat them differently. Because I don't want to go through the same thing or put a woman through the same thing that that person put my mom through."

However, some mental experts claim that it's not uncommon for victims of abuse to have repetition compulsion as a means of dealing with buried emotions caused by the earlier abuse.

What do you think? If you are a man, did you experience abuse as a child?

Did you see your father or a male member of the household physically abuse your mother?

Has it impacted your relationships with women as an adult?

You have to understand that what you go through in Jamacia is not the same as America. Yeah, domestic violence goes on every where but as most common (as some of you have stated) in Jamaica. My aunt was married to an American man for a few years (who was later killed) and he never hit on her. She than married a Jamaican man who whooped her a*s all the time. Some people may be able to deal with a situation like that and some can't. Just because your grew up around people getting they head knocked in all the time, doesn't mean its the same as watching your mother or any family member being ABUSED!

Really Chris? Your mother used to get her a*s whopped that you pissed urself & now you want to put someone thru that. If a woman piss u off to a certain extent simply drive weh yuh car left har - dont get out of ur car & beat her. If is herpes she give yuh why u beat her, unna should be using protection anyway, so dont blame her for not putting on a condom dick head. Mi loose offa u big time - mi all a tink bout deleting the picture mi fren tek of me an u at the Marley concert last year. Sort out yuhself.

There's a difference between abuse and a good ole fashioned a*s-whopping. Abuse leaves serious emotional and at times physical scars and until you "walk in someone else's shoes" you never know how you would handle it. However this is not an excuse to hit a woman.

@ Emprez, true, true. All a my people dem did beat mi,not abuse mi, but when I look back I realize that it was for my own good.I still love them all....... Chris, I feel sorry fi yu, but yu should no seh US a woman country, soh yu should a neva put yu self inna this situation. If it get to a point weh yu a haffi beat yu woman, then leave her cause it nuh worth it. Walk away from any arguments weh a get too hot. Yu woman must respect yu and u must repect yu woman. Mi nuh support no man weh a beat dem woman, even thou some a dem deserve some lick. Rihanna jealous and mi believe she lick yu first, but yu have too much fi lose so yu should a just walk weh. Mi notice seh all a di woman dem from back home in the Carib, when dem come a farin, dem start follow the Yankee dem and a call police pon dem man fi di least a tings.

I always hear about domestic violence between couples, but I never know I would live to see the day when a man would bite a woman; usually the woman is the one who does the biting; I wonder if Chris is OK? If this is the way you respect women then may god have mercy on your soul.

F all psychologists!With that crazy method!Trust me am gonna change that when i become one!Because any person live through abuse really knows how it feels being abused and how painful it is!How can they act the same and pple accept it!So that should not be the an excuse.Well as it could be more understandable if they reacted the same way on the people abusing them at that moment!But such people always turn to weak victim who care for them and cherrish them.They never went to stronger people than them!Learn about Psychopathys behaviours....Well and sometimes we people have choice and make decision.Remember some human are not kind!Will find dozen of excuses!Women Watch out!A real man never fights a woman!Example from Gladiators....Man fighting a woman.....U must be weak...Women!Once you are bitten it will never stop. The violence grows until you get killed....Abusers never change!Save yourself!

Being abused is totally different from getting your arse whopped! one is physiological, the other is physical both can mess you up in different ways, and every individual is different so it affects them in various ways.

but on saying that, this is no excuse to hit on a woman or anyone else for that matter.
We don't know what really happened between Rihanna and Chris, so let's not start lashing out and slagging him off before we all get the full facts! the media is tricky yea! so don't believe everything you read.....peace!
