NEW OUTLOOK: Chris Brown
CHRIS BROWN let fans into his spiritual side over the weekend in a series of posts thanking God for the “lessons” he has experienced in “the short time I’ve been on this earth”.
The singer, who has endured a turbulent year, in which he has split from on/off girlfriend Karrueche Tran, learned he fathered a little girl, Royalty, now 14 months, and had his house robbed, said he had a new outlook on life after visiting church – the first time in 15 years.
He wrote in a lengthy Instagram post: "These last couples months I've been the realest. I got a wake up call, got my heart broken, got my s**t together, lost the person I thought would be in my life for long time, went from being friends with everybody to only f***ing with a few and staying low key. I learned nobodies really down for you like you think.(sic)"
But despite his reflective mood, the 26-year-old star is now feeling "blessed" and doesn't want to waste any more time.
REFLECTIVE: Brown's Instagram's post
He added in a later post: "That moment u wake up and realise who the f**k you are and how blessed you've been and finally understand you don't need anyone for anything except GOD! Then u realise how much time you wasted on bulls**t and s*ty people!"
His new outlook continued this morning (July 27) when he logged back on to the social media platform to add that he wanted to “thank God for everything he's done for me over the years”.
“I've done a lot in this short time I've been on this earth. I'm 26 but i feel 46 and I understand a lot more as a man and a father. Before I left the states for this tour run I was able to go to church. I haven't been in almost 15 years. HillsongLA!!!!! It's making me a better person and I appreciate all the fans across the world who love me for me.
“I'm not perfect by any means and no one has to be. From Gangs to fights to beefs to drugs and anything else frowned upon I've been able to learn my own way and love myself and continue to spread positivity and SMILE. I feel comfortable in my own skin because man cannot judge man. I want to continue my path to be a legend. I want to always put a smile on the faces of people who think about giving up,” he said.
