Chris Brown & Adrienne Bailon’s Feud May Be Over, But Not Because of an Apology
This is the feud heard 'round the world. Chris Brown and Adrienne Bailon are still going at it for her recent remarks about his current girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, and his rapid/toxic response. In what should come as no surprise, Brown recently posted via Instagram that he will not be apologizing for his rant, which some see as misogynistic for good reason.
For those who haven't been following this story, here's a quick recap:
During Bailon's talk show The Real, she and co-host Tamar Braxton chatted about Brown's on-again/off-again relationship with Tran. They commented on his romantic history leading to a larger topic of conversation revolving around dangerous relationships. Bailon said, "You don’t think that some of her friends also reap the benefits of her dating Chris Brown? They want to be a part of that circle. Really, are they going to tell you, 'Leave that?' ... You want to have real friends who tell you the truth." Well, Brown responded in a not-so-nice manner on Monday and repeatedly called her a b****. FYI, his response has since been removed.
With all of that said, on Tuesday, Brown took to social media to "reflect" on the situation or as he calls it, a "roast." Here's what he wrote:
Yesterday's roast was amusing to some and disrespectful to others. All in all the whole s--t was childish. I could've have been politically correct and went about the situation more civilised [sic] but I'm not fake nor do I need to ever comment on anyone's life. I felt the need to say what I felt. It seems everyone can always have an opinion on "CHRIS BROWN" and chime in whenever they want. The show was depicting relationships. They gave their views on my relationship by bashing my significant other for being with me publicly on national television. There are too many Pots calling the kettle black. I know that with me being a public figure and one of the best at what I do it's more of a story to talk about. It comes with the territory. Like I said before, I say what I feel and what I want especially if anyone has an opinion about me and mine. Somedays I'll be cool and then other days ima roast ya ass. So this isn't an apology for yesterday. Just a reflection. People, live ya life, you'll mess around and go blind looking at me all the time. #teambreezyaintwitthebullshit
Do you think Bailon kept quiet after this post? No, she didn't, as she is entitled to express her feelings as well. Here's her response which she wrote in response to a fan on Instagram:
Who said anything bad about her? I actually know her... We're cool. The conversation was generally speaking of anyone who may "possibly" be in a bad relationship. Please don't start drama that doesn't EXIST. If she's happy... so am I. And I certainly STARTED my career in a multi platinum singing group. Get your facts straight. You don't need to freeload when you have your own Barbie. God bless.
It really should come as no surprise that Brown won't initiate an apology (right now, at least), after all he is known for his outbursts and disrespecting women. Let's all remember, it took him about five months to publicly apologize for assaulting Rihanna. With that said, maybe now that Brown and Bailon have both said their piece, they will move on from this unfortunate argument.
