Brown Scarred By Abusive Childhood

R+B star CHRIS BROWN has spoken out about the violence he witnessed as a child in a bid to end the suffering of kids in similar situations. The 18-year-old singer told how the domestic abuse his mum endured at the hands of her violent boyfriend left him too scared to leave his bedroom and he would often end up wetting his bed. He says, "I don't want to mention the person's name - it wasn't my real father - but somebody hurt my mom and me, I had to deal with that from seven all the way to 13. "It affected me, especially (my behaviour) towards women - I treat them differently. I don't want to put a woman through the same thing that person put my mom through. "I was scared and timid when I was little. I used to pee in my bed... I think it was me being nervous, and scared to get up (out of bed) and see what was going on. "My mom used to try and hide it from me and my sister, but we knew. "Anybody that's going through it, just try to deal with it, talk it out."
