- Chris Brown reveals the dark past of his childhood in the wake of his domestic violence issues towards his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna, from years ago
- The 28-year-old singer is said to have threatened to end his step-father's life for beating his mother black and blue
- Brown witnessed violence since he was seven to thirteen years old
Chris Brown's physical assault towards his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, has once again unearthed the dark stories of his childhood.
In a 2007 interview with Tyra Banks on her talk show, the singer opened up about his mother suffering from physical abuse.
After witnessing her mother's abuse, he said he vowed to treat women differently because he didn't want to see them go through the same thing.
Brown shared it changed him when watching the violence and had to deal with it at the tender age of seven until he's thirteen.
He was once an outgoing person as a child, but he suddenly became timid and shy and afraid to get out of his room in fear to witness the abuse again that he sometimes ended up wetting his bed.
In a separate interview with Giant magazine, the singer also talked about how his step-father would beat his mother.
'He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, 'I'm just gonna go crazy on him one day.' ... I hate him to this day.'
He recalled he once told his mom that he would kill his abusive step-father with a bat while she has gone to work.
The memory has haunted the singer up until he grew up to be an adult and a known singer worldwide.
According to several sources, Brown's childhood experiences had affected his mental health that caused him to develop the post-traumatic disorder (PTSD) and bipolar disorder.
A representative from the rehabilitation center he was previously admitted to, confirmed that his developed PTSD and bipolar disorder were a contributing factor for his aggressive advances towards Rihanna.
MTV News talked to Giant Mag's editor-in-chief, revealing that he was sad that Brown's behavior sent a wrong message to the youth, especially when he was considered as a role model for young men and women.
Brown had been taking his medication under a supervision of an attending physician to ensure his mental stability.
