Chris Brown seeking 'God's help' after Rihanna row

|PIC1|R&B singer Chris Brown says he is seeking “God’s help” to overcome his current difficulties and “become a better person” as he stands accused of beating up his pop star girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown allegedly attacked Rihanna during a heated row in Los Angeles on 8 February, the day of the Grammy awards. Both singers had received nominations for an award.

A police photo showing Rihanna with horrific facial injuries has since emerged on the internet. The LAPD are investigating to determine who was behind the leak.

A statement by Brown, through his publicist said, “Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what has transpired. I am seeking the counselling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person.”

A police investigation into the incident is continuing. Brown may face charges of domestic violence. Rihanna meanwhile is staying with relatives in her home country of Barbados.
