Chris Brown to "Come Clean" About Rihanna on ABC

by at . Comments

As we reported on Thanksgiving, ABC has come under fire for lining up a sit-down with Chris Brown right after nixing an appearance by Adam Lambert.

Likely to diffuse any talk of a double standard, ABC announced that Brown will not perform on the network, and that the interview will be hard-hitting.

The beleaguered R&B star will supposedly "come clean" about Rihanna.

After dodging questions about the infamous beat-down in interviews with everyone from Larry King to Wendy Williams, the "Crawl" singer is set to divulge details of the incident in an interview with Robin Roberts on 20/20 December 11.  

It's being billed as his "chance to respond" to Rihanna's interviews ...

Does Chris Brown deserve a forum to talk about Rihanna?

The 20-year-old, whose new album Graffiti debuts December 8, will only answer questions in the pre-taped interview and will not promote the album.

Chris Brown's TV interrogation comes just a month after Rihanna's revealing 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, which aired on the November 5.

Rihanna talked about the assault in graphic detail, admitting that she was "embarrassed" that she still had feelings for Brown after the incident.

Brown said he respected her right to talk about the incident but wished she had kept it quiet. Will he finally tell his unedited version of events?

In any case, Brown has been laying relatively low, performing community labor as a part of his assault sentence, and focusing on his music.

Kay - In my humble opinion you need help, and quickly. Stop taking the meds your MD has given you! After that, how about you fuck off and get a life. This is just my humble opinion.
