Joyce Hawkins: Not Ashamed of Son Chris Brown

by at . Comments

After her son's formal sentencing to five years' probation this week for beating Rihanna, Chris Brown's mom Joyce Hawkins has spoken out for the first time.

Thanking fans for standing by her troubled 20-year-old son, Hawkins posted the following comments on the singer's fan site, TheChrisBrownFanClub.com:

Chris Brown, Jenna Bentley

"I want to say, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your continued support. I'm sorry I wasn't allowed to speak to anyone as the case was ongoing."

"I can now say this has been the most painful moment in my entire life, but knowing that you were still standing by Chris' side made it a little easier for us."

"Because of all your prayers, God brought him through."

Chris Brown and his mom Joyce Hawkins.

"I just want to say God has never failed me and never will. All moms and dads please stand by your children and pray for their goodness each and every day."

"I made a promise. I would never be ashamed of him no matter where I am or who I talk to. You see this whole thing isn't about Chris Brown, it's about God."

"He wants to show all of you the goodness of him through Chris. Chris will be addressing all of his fans very soon. We love you so much and so does God."

On Wednesday, both Chris and his mother taped a revealing interview - his first since the February 8 beating - with Larry King, which will air September 2.

It's certainly hard to fault Joyce for sticking by her son, but evoking God can only do so much. Given Brown's history of violence, it's on him to set a better example and prove that he deserves the second chance he's been given.

I cant say that when Chris gets a new album that I wont be the first to buy it because I will. But everyone needs to realiza that even though this was his first time beting up a woman whether his has a violent past or not it s still WRONG.Rihanna is a victim in every way possible and what Chris did was absolutely wrong. I do believe that Chris is sorry but I do feel that this should be his first and very last time doing this to a anyone let alone a woman. I do think he can jump back from this and it was take a long time to get it together again. but i just cant get past that he did tauch a woman like that. It ws wrong and deep down in my heart I hope Chris really does mean sorry and isnt just say it or posting it on video because its the right thing to do.

I feel sorry for his poor mother. I really don't know how chris can redeem himself. His career was so promising and he ruined it...He ruined his own career...When he asks himself why???He can only regretably aknowledge that he is a total idiot..He must feel like the biggest loser, but he still goes out clubbing...he needs to be clubbed.

Chris's mom should be ashamed of her son. Her son should be ashamed of himself. He beat up a woman and disfigured her. That's not what God wills - that's what Chris Brown did and he got off too easy. Shame, shame, shame - and don't brink God into equation - it's tacky. He needs counseling and it seems to me his mother needs counseling as well. She didn't teach him that tempers must be kept in check, she didn't teach him that hitting anyone is forbidden and shameful and a horrible character flaw and obviously she's not teaching him anything right now.

People need to understand also that women initiate violence against men too. Violence is not good from either gender and I'm a woman. Everyone are thrwing stones at Chris, he doesn't rap or sing about hitting women, or disrespecting them, but yet people listen to R-kelly, Jay Z, lil Wayne, and TI. Such hypocrits in this world. Chris never owed me an apology only God & Rhianna.
I think both Rhi & Chris have a lot of maturing to do and through Christ it can be done. No one is perfect at all. Look & Kobe Bryant, Mike Tyson,Mike Vic, Paris Hilton, R.Kelly, Brittney Spears, and the list goes on with other celebs who have not been treated as Bad as Chris and his situations. I will keep praying for you Chris, keep focused and your head up. No one can Stop God!!!

Hitting a woman one time is too many and is physical abuse. It's an awful cycle that will be repeated if he doesn't take his anger management classes seriously. His sentencing was well deserved.
