LOS ANGELES (WFLX) - Five months after he was arrested for beating his famous, now ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, Chris Brown apologizes.

"I thought it was time you heard directly from me that I am sorry."

Brown released a two-minute video on his Web site saying he is sad and ashamed of his conduct. Police arrested Brown on February 8 and later charged him with assault. He pleaded guilty to the assault charge last month and faces sentencing next month.

Brown says he wanted to speak out earlier, but was advised not to by his lawyer.
