    Chris Brown has spoken about his assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna, describing how a violent relationship culminated with him punching her. The Barbados-born singer was pictured bruised and with a split lip after Brown attacked her in his car in 2009. In a new documentary, he said Rihanna had been kicking and hitting him during an argument about another woman before he "really hit her" and bit her arm. He said he felt like a "monster" and the fight would "haunt me forever". Brown received five years probation and a community service order for the assault. In the documentary, Chris Brown: Welcome to my Life, he said the relationship started going downhill after he admitted being unfaithful with a former employee, despite previously denying it.
