Chris Brown  "misspoke" in saying he didn't recall assault

Tuesday September 1, 2009

Rihanna's former boyfriend Chris Brown spoke up this week to set the record straight after reports appeared that he had claimed to not remember assaulting the Umbrella singer.

The R'n'B star said the stories, which were taken from a segment of an interview with Larry King (pictured) to be shown in the US on Wednesday night, were: "not representative of what I said."

He "misspoke" in the short section which was circulated, he said, during which Larry asked him the question "Do you remember doing it?"

"That 30 seconds of the interview they used of me was taken from a one hour interview during which that same question was asked something like four or five times," Chris said, adding it was out of context when not looked at with the entire interview.

The first four times… I gave the same answer - which was that I didn't think it was appropriate for me to talk about what happened that night," he told US publication People. "The fifth time… I just misspoke. I was asked, 'Do you remember doing it?' and I said, 'No.'

"Of course I remember doing it," he added.
