T.I.: ‘My Only Intention Was to Support Rihanna and Chris’

T.I. and Chris Brown

T.I. has released a statement clarifying comments he made about Chris Brown’s domestic assault case involving Rihanna.

“After careful consideration I realized I made the mistake of commenting before understanding the situation. I myself am no stranger to media scrutiny. My only intention was to support both Rihanna and Chris during these times. My heart goes out to both of them,” the statement read.

Tip had originally told Carson Daly on Monday that he spoke with his Bone Deep co-star and told him, “This too shall pass. People just gotta remember, we celebrities and we’re entertainers, but we still human. Don’t expect for us not to make mistakes because we will.”

The rapper, whose MTV show “T.I.’s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go” premiered on Tuesday night, expressed what his friend was going through. “I guess he a little concerned about his situation, but he’s still the same Chris.”

    Does T.I. even know what he said that was so wrong? Cause it doesn’t sound like he understands why people are upset with his comment.

    I think all of you all are idiots and need to mind your own businesses. Unless you know any of the people involved or know the people close to them, you wouldn’t know the situation. And yes true, it was wrong of him to hit her but you dont actually know the story, all you know is the rumors and what not. So just leave it be and shut up about it. Everything will come out in the end. I support both of them in this situation.

    My opinion you know you listen to Chris music. For everybody else we don’t know the truth. She might hit him first. Everybody go on differnt sides. For T.I. he can say what he want to say. Nobody telling gayz to shut the hell up when people was saying he was pushing around beyonce. So I guess Beyonce got to watch her back RiRi back trying to get gayz

    T.I. shouldn’t have spoken about the situation at first cause he didn’t know anything about the situation.

    CB does need support. His pubic altercation now defines who he is? Now, the world is so offended that they cant give the man the time of day? Now he’s a punk? Really? Wow! One physical altercation doesnt mean hes a woman beater it means he assaulted her. And you dont know what happened cuz you werent in the car! What Im saying is, you dont know what triggered it and if you are a man or woman who thinks you know how to think like a man you cannot say what you will never do until you are faced with the situation. I dont know who passed the first lick cause i wasnt in the car, or if the “text message” is real because i dont have access to CB’s phone or the extent of her bruises because I didnt see her, and neither did anyone else who is putting this stuff out there! And for the record, throwing a drink in someones face is also considered assault (which Ive seen in MANY clubs) and you can be prosecuted if it impairs the other person in anyway-so for all you know, she slapped him, hit him w/her purse, kicked him w/her stilletos and then he slapped her and took off. Since most men do not report when their partner physically assaults them, she couldve done or said anything. And for all you who say “it doesnt matter what, he never should have hit her” let me tell you that I have witnessed women who assault their men many times over physically by slapping them or throwing things at them, and one day, they finally do snap and slap the girl! I dont know too many men who are going to just sit around and let their women beat them- (how many women kill their husbands after years of abuse?? Nobody faults them when they claim self defense and “just snap”so how you know she’s not a controlling, jealous, slap happy girlfriend?

    Wait until they both release OFFICIAL STATEMENTS, not the statements of “unidentified close sources/family/labelmates, producers, newscasters and close personal friends”. Show me pix of her “bloody lip, 2 swollen shut eyes, bite marks on her hands and fingers, and multiple contusions” that i see racing across the media. Let me hear her say she was arguing like normal and then he just started beating her like a man-for no reason! Let me hear him say that he beat her so badly that she was “almost unrecognizeable” THEN lets all line up and throw stones!! Oh, wait, I cant throw stones, because unlike them, my skeletons are actually still IN my closet! What about yours??

    “While you measure yourself against another mans weaknesses, know that someone else measures themselves against yours”. Just because you want kudos for not putting your hands on a woman ever, doesnt mean your faults are not loud and clear to someone else.
    Self-righteousness-you are no better than he is just because you both saw a snake on the ground, and you went left avoiding the snake and he went right and got bit.
