Sharing his thoughts on the alleged domestic dispute between Chris Brown and Rihanna, the outspoken The Game has said the couple’s age should be considered before judging.
Speaking with radio personality Bootleg Kev, The Game added his views to the chorus of opinions on the subject.
“I think it’s a sad situation,” Game said. “I think the point that everybody’s missing is that they both kids, man. What we thinking was some major domestic violence was probably just a little cat and puppy fight between people that used to be teenagers just like yesterday, man. Rihanna can’t be no older than 20 and Chris Brown I know is about 20 years old…People making it out to be more than it is like the media always does anyway, man. I say give the kid a break, man. I’m pretty sure they’re gonna end up back together anyway.” (Wild 101.1)
Despite Game’s youth-based defense, details have emerged from the incident showing the couple’s dispute was not the first.
LAPD cops interviewed Rihanna after the attack and she told them Brown had been violent toward her in the past and that the attacks were getting “more violent” as time went on. The interview is potent evidence if the L.A. County D.A. charges Brown with felony domestic battery, and that could happen soon. (TMZ)
Fellow West Coast rap mogul Suge Knight recently offered his support to Brown.
“Chris Brown is a lil’ homie,” Knight said in an on-street interview. “I got more love for Chris Brown than anybody. One of the things Chris Brown did before at the time my daughter was turning 14 years old, it was her birthday, and they were having a concert. He put her on stage, sang happy birthday, he didn’t have to, showed a lot of respect and I respect him for that. So therefore, I’ma ride with him a thousand percent on whatever it is, period.” (You Tube)
