Chris Brown, the 24-year-old singer-songwriter may be facing jail time and recently shared a Bible scripture with fans while defending his character.
Brown was placed on probation after physically assaulting ex-girlfriend and singer Rihanna in 2009. Now, he may be facing jail time after one woman claimed that he hit her car and attempted to flee the scene.
Another young woman recently claimed that the singer assaulted her during a recent nightclub performance. While Brown has vehemently took to Twitter to deny both claims, he is defending his character to the public after a number of people have attempted to link him to criminal behavior recently.
"I work my (expletive) off to provide for my entire family," Brown wrote in a Twitter rant Tuesday. "I've made mistakes in the past and have worked hard to be a better person."
The singer went on to outline the age he was charged with a criminal act, while acknowledging his growth.
"19-24 years of age. I don't have all the answers and you can't show me a person that age who has it figured out," Brown tweeted. "We live and grow. Let me live."
Brown ended his rant by tweeting the scripture, "2 Corinthians 12:10." The scripture in the New International Bible states, "That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
Sources close to the singer have reportedly said that his current life is taking a toll on him. After constantly being accused of wrongdoing, Brown may be looking to lead a normal life.
"He can't go anywhere, can't do anything, can't eat, can't take a leak without somebody trying to accuse him of something," a source close to Brown reportedly told HollywoodLife.com. "Sometimes he wishes he was just an average person working at the Post Office, because at least then, people wouldn't be trying to [mess] with him. … At least he would have freedom. Life is already hard; sometime the fame makes [things] even harder."
