A documentary called "Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life" hit iTunes and other online retailers this week
. . . and it has Chris going into detail about the night with RIHANNA eight years ago.
He claims they were BOTH violent toward each other around that time, and while he says it was WRONG, he doesn't really show a lot of remorse.
Instead, he frames it more like they'd get physical . . . and then they'd step back and say, quote, "What are we doing?"
And this was even BEFORE he pummeled her in the face with a closed fist.
He says that Rihanna would scratch him during a fight, and he'd hate to have to come up with excuses for it . . . like that he fell. And he'd feel bad if she had a "scar or a bruise" that she'd have to explain.
To be fair, he does say the violence was "never okay," and he says he was momentarily horrified after he saw what he did to her face on that fateful night.
But he's also full of excuses: Rihanna was ballistic because he lied about a previous relationship . . . they were both drinking . . . Rihanna had been verbally and physically abusive too . . . and in the car that night, she tried to kick him and grabbed at his junk, and on and on. So clearly, he isn't really GETTING it.
