Chris Brown still sees his therapist. The 25-year-old singer and rapper has admitted he still attends therapy twice a week after he was sentenced to five years of probation for assaulting his former girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009.
He told MTV News: "I think help is great. I still talk to my therapist twice a week, and it helps me to ... if I'm frustrated and I'm dealing with something, to vent and say what I'm going through so I can hear from an actual clinical person, 'this is how you should react,' or 'it's good to feel this way because feelings, emotions, and energy are supposed to come and go. It's not supposed to stay there, you're not supposed to keep it inside, because it'll bottle up and you'll become a monster."
Meanwhile, Chris has offered advice to footballer Ray Rice who was suspended by his team after video footage emerged of the sports star assaulting his fiancée (and now wife), Janay Rice.
Chris said: "To Ray, or anybody else - because I'm not better than the next man - I can just say I've been down that road. I deal with situations and I've made my mistakes too, but it's all about how you push forward and how you control yourself."
