Controversial R&B crooner Chris Brown has just added another controversial subplot to his story: according to Brown, he lost his virginity at age 8, reports The Guardian.
Brown, who has an upcoming album, “X,” due out on Nov. 19, was raised in a trailer park in Tappahannock, Va., and his male influences were reportedly limited to his male cousins who sat around watching porn. According to Brown, with all of the exposure to sex at a young age, by age 8 he wanted to have sex, so he reportedly lost his virginity to a round-the-way girl who was nearly twice his age.
The 24-year-old, who likens his sexual prowess to the ‘Purple One’, Prince, has not openly shared his number of conquests but says, “But you know how Prince had a lot of girls back in the day? Prince was, like, the guy. I’m just that, today. But most women won’t have any complaints if they’ve been with me. They can’t really complain. It’s all good.”
The young performer with a rep for having a short fuse also opened up about his earliest influences, such as R&B singer Ginuwine and King of Pop Michael Jackson.
During the interview, Brown even broached his relationship with pop singer Rihanna, whom he assaulted nearly four years ago after a pre-Grammy’s party, leaving her bruised and bloodied. After Brown was cuffed, he was slapped with five-year’s probation, a restraining order, and mandated by the courts to do six months of community service for his crimet. For Brown, the incident served as a wake-up call.
