Chris Brown's recent admission that he lost his virginity at age eight raised plenty of eyebrows, but one key aspect of that story was initially overlooked.
Was he actually raped?
Quoting the singer in an extensive interview, the Guardian (UK) broke the story that Chris Brown lost his virginity at eight years old, to a local girl in Virginia.
She was "14 or 15." Really? “Yeah, really. Uh-huh,” Brown grins and chuckles. “It’s different in the country,” he added, noting his rural upbringing.
Brown grew up with a gang of boy cousins who loved porn and were raring to go. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know?" Chris says.
We don't, really. So, perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that the narrative has shifted in the past few days to whether Brown was raped as a child.
