Update On Chris Brown and Rihanna- Chris' Stepdad Speaks

Via Chris Brown’s former stepfather, Donnelle Hawkins, spoke exclusively to Access Hollywood for the first time since Brown was arrested for criminal threats in connection with an alleged violent incident with a woman reported to be the singer’s girlfriend Rihanna on Sunday morning.

“[Chris] has to take responsibility for his own actions,” Hawkins told Access.

When asked if he believed reports about the alleged incident involving Brown were true, Hawkins said, “I wouldn’t be surprised.”
After Brown’s parents divorced, his mother re-married and Hawkins became Brown’s stepfather.

In a 2007 interview with GIANT magazine, Brown spoke about a time when he was 11 and he told his mother that he would go to jail for killing his allegedly abusive stepfather.

“He used to hit my mom… He made me terrified all the time,” Brown claimed during the interview with GIANT magazine. “I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, ‘I’m just gonna go crazy on him one day…’ I hate him to this day.”

“There was a lot of arguing between his mom and I. I never raised a hand at his mom,” Hawkins said in response. “We (Brown’s mother and I) argued frequently… As far as physical abuse there was no physical abuse.”

Hawkins added, “I spanked Chris one time.”

“I became the bad guy. Chris was really mad at his mom for leaving his dad, so I became the scapegoat,” Hawkins continued. “No matter how much I tried to be a father figure nothing worked.”

Via New details have emerged about the midnight altercation between Chris Brown and Rihanna that led to Brown being booked on a felony criminal threat charge on Sunday.

"Chris knocked her around," a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE. "Black eye, blood, bruises. She had to be treated by a doctor." A police source confirms to PEOPLE that the singer suffered a black eye as well as "a swollen split lip and two red and purple contusions on either side of her forehead." The source, who described police photos of Rihanna, added, "She looked distraught and in a lot of pain. Her eyes were closed because she was looking down."

The Barbados-bred beauty, 20 – who is currently in "a safe place," says a friend – is cooperating with detectives, according to the Los Angeles Times. Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton has said he expects the case will be handed over to the district attorney's office on Tuesday or Wednesday. At that time, the prosecutors could charge Brown, 19, with more crimes. The case could be affected by how much Rihanna is willing to forgive her boyfriend.

"Prosecutors back off somewhat when they see a couple trying to work out their own issues," says Steve Sitkoff, an L.A. defense attorney. But, says the friend, "I would be so sad if she went back to him."

In the meantime, both stars have canceled upcoming appearances: The NBA has issued a statement that Brown will no longer participate in their All-Star Game events in Phoenix this weekend, while Rihanna backed out of a Friday night concert in Malaysia.
