During a recent conversation with Larry King, she said:
"There are so many rumours in the entertainment industry. And I was like, 'Oh, that's just a rumour'. And then more and more, you know, police evidence and things come out and photos and things (and things and stuff and things). And I was just, like, in shock. I went back to the interview that I had with Chris Brown. He told me that he experienced this abuse of - I think it was a father figure - on his mother. And that he was so scared, you know, hearing his mother scream and in so much pain... So when I heard [about the attack] I said, 'Wow, the cycle is repeating'. That's the first thing I thought. I feel sorry for him because we all know that it is a cycle. When you experience something, there is a large chance that you are going to become the perpetrator (like when victims of rape go on to become rapists themselves, 'n things?) So that is where the sympathy goes out, because he is a victim. But at the same time, your reasoning for doing something does not excuse the fate of somebody else."
Why some models should never graduate to the realm of public speaking. Exhibit A.
