Chris Brown's 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna has followed him throughout his career, and now the singer/rapper has revealed that-- during the early days of the backlash he received-- he considered ending his own life.
"I went from being on top of the world - number one songs - being kinda like America's sweetheart, to being public enemy number one," Chris says during the trailer for his upcoming documentary, Welcome To My Life. He compares the relationship he had with Rihanna to a fairy tale, before delving into how the assault was a turning point in his life.
"I felt like a f***ing monster," Chris says, adding that he had trouble eating and sleeping during that period, and even considered suicide.
