R&B star Chris Brown has revealed he underwent counseling for anger management in the wake of his vicious beating of former girlfriend Rihanna.
Speaking to People, Brown said he sought counseling after his attack on Rihanna to help deal with his anger management issues. “I want to understand my feelings,” Brown said. “I just need to talk to someone. I wanted to understand the problem at hand.”
How does Brown plan to deal with his anger in the future? Apparently he might just do a waltz or two. “If I do [get man], I will work with my counselor and hopefully channel my anger into something like dancing.”
Meanwhile, the feud between Chris Brown and Oprah Winfrey continues to heat up. Oprah aired a show on domestic violence dedicated to “all the Rihannas of the world” after Brown’s assault on his then girlfriend. During the episode, she stared directly in the camera and said: “If a man hits you once, he will hit you again. He will hit you again.”
Brown was angered by what he considered a “slap in the face” from Oprah. “I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school.” Brown claims Oprah insulted him by only showing support for Rihanna after the incident. “She could’ve been more helpful, like, ‘OK, I’m going to help both of these people out.'”
A rep for Oprah responded to Chris Brown’s statements, saying, “Oprah is very appreciative that Chris Brown performed at her school, but she takes domestic abuse very seriously. She hopes he gets the counseling he needs.”
Well, at least it seems like Brown is taking Oprah’s advice and getting some proper head shrinking – because he obviously needs it.
