R&B singer Chris Brown has displayed his support for golfer Tiger Woods in light of recent adultery allegations and the resulting public fallout.
From Brown's perspective, every person should be given a second opportunity in life.
"I know my fans gave me a second chance," he explained in an interview. "I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing, 'cause he is the best at it...Whatever [Woods'] personal life is, and this goes for me and him, his personal life is his personal life. Nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on anybody else's personal life when they're not directly involved with them. I think people have to realize that everybody's human. The good thing is, if you learn from your mistakes, then that's a part of life. I think that's a part of living and learning from mistakes and becoming a better person and growing from situation."

Woods' family conflict has already become the subject of spoofs by rappers including Maino and Ludacris.
Produced by the Neptunes, "Sexting" finds Luda satirizing Woods' stay in sex rehab by imagining a conversation with the teacher who's trying to help him get "unhooked on a**". Unfortunately, the beat doesn't provide much of a lift -- sorry to disappoint anyone who was hoping for another "Money Maker". "Hey this is Luda, okay? I need you to do me a 'huge' favor. Um, ca-can you please take your name off of your phone? My girl went through my cell phone and she may be calling you. So if you can please take your name off of that and just have it as a number on the voicemail, okay? You gotta do this for me. Huge. Quickly!" (Idolator)
Rapper Jim Jones shared his stance on Woods after the golfer publicly apologized to the media and fans last week.
"If I had a billion I woulnt apologize for sh*t," Jones wrote following Tiger's statement on Friday, "especialy not 2 th media my wife kids mayb depends on how my billion make me feel tht day lol." (Jim Jones' Twitter)
Last Friday, Woods explained the seriousness behind his situation during a press conference.
"While I have always tried to be private, I have a few things to say. Elin and i have started to work though this. As she has told me, my real apology to her will not be in words but in action, however what we say to each other will be private. I am also aware of the pain I have caused everyone in this room I have let you down and let down my fans, for many my behavior has been a major disappointment, my behavior has caused considerable worry to my business partners ,and everyone involved in my business, but most importantly to the young people we influence, I apologize."
