"Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God's help, to emerging a better person."

"Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or the media is wrong."

"While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts on Facebook, blogs or any place else," the statement continued.

"Those posts or writings under my name are frauds."

Chris Brown, 19, allegedly attacked girlfriend Rihanna, 20, in Los Angeles on February 8, before both were scheduled to perform at the Grammy Awards.

He posted $50,000 bail and has kept an extremely low profile since the incident.

The L.A. district attorney's office is still investigating what happened and weighing what charges, if any, Brown will face in conjunction with the attack.
