"While I respect Rihanna's right to discuss the specific events of February 8, I maintain my position that all of the details should remain a private matter between us," he said in an official statement.
"I do appreciate her support and wish her the best. I am extremely sorry for what I did, and I accept accountability for my actions. At this point, I am taking the proper steps to learn about me and grow from my mistakes.
"I only hope that others in similar situations can learn from our experience as well. Abuse of any kind is always wrong. The rest I leave it to God."
Um, wouldn't Rihanna speaking out about her attack help raise awareness about domestic violence and provoke many victims out there to seek help? We know you haven't got much of your ego left, Chris, but come on.
