Chris Brown Opens Up About How He Won Rihanna Back After Assault

It’s fair to say that most of us were a little surprised when Rihanna resumed a romantic relationship with Chris Brown after their, err, rocky past. And now Breezy is opening up about how exactly he won his way back into Ri’s heart despite some pretty heavy (and sometimes court-appointed) odds.

During an interview with Ryan Seacrest on KIIS-FM yesterday, Brown said that he’s taken responsibility for his past faults. “I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident and that time was probably the worst part of my life and being that she has and she’s a wonderful person I’m eternally grateful and thankful,” he explained.

Despite their apparently happy reunion, he’s well aware of all the haters out there that don’t want to see the two on the same continent, let alone in each others arms! “People are entitled to their opinions. I can’t go around blaming. It’s all about my responsibility and me growing up as a man,” he says. “I think now that I’m becoming older, and trying to mature in this life under the public eye at all times, I have to focus on doing the right thing and being more of a humble individual.”

Last month the R&B star spoke more about that dark evening in 2009 when the then-19-year-old violently lashed out at his girlfriend. “That night was the deepest regret of my life, the biggest mistake,” he told The Mirror. “But she loves me – what can I say? I’m forgiven… but, yes, I worked hard for it. Sometimes you row, you fight, with the one you love and things get said, stuff spirals.” Will Rihanna be needing that bridal bikini for her alleged summer wedding to Brown? We shall see!
