"Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God's help, to emerging a better person. Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writing under my name are frauds."

Thanks for releasing that very useful statement, Chris. We're sure Rihanna feels much better after reading that.

Seriously though, we know Chris would "like to talk about this more", but I believe what he's trying to say is: "My mom is sticking by me and I'm down with the pastor, so what I did can't be that bad - no matter what the people pretending to be me are blogging. Heck, I might even learn from it, and continue to have a glittering career like Josh Brolin, Sean Connery and several American sports stars."

Meanwhile, Rihanna's father Ronald Fenty said: "At some point, she will speak out. I hope she will stand up for women all over the world."
