Former Rihanna BF Chris Brown has remained mum since publicly apologizing to Rihanna for their violent altercation -- until now.
The R&B star released a video talking about his upcoming album and alluding to the drama that has surrounded him since he was charged with felony battery and making criminal threats.
In the video, Chris thanks his fans for their support -- and brushes off the "haters." "Everybody that's haters, they just been haters. All my real fans, I love you all." Brown also defends himself in the clip, saying, "I ain't a monster."
A hearing for Brown's case is scheduled for Thursday. The "Forever" singer's lawyer, Mark Geragos, is reportedly seeking access to the LAPD records to investigate whether or not there was police misconduct during the investigation.
