There have been reports on the internet that I didn’t remember what happened that night with Rihanna.  I want to try and set things straight. 

That 30 seconds of the interview they used of me was taken from a one hour interview during which that same question was asked something like 4 or 5 times — and when you look at the entire interview you will see it is not representative of what I said.   

The first four times – or how ever many times it was – I gave the same answer — which was that I didn’t think it was appropriate for me to talk about what happened that night.  I said it was not right for me and it really wasn’t fair to Rihanna.  The fifth time – or whatever it was – I just misspoke. I was asked, “Do you remember doing it?” and I said, “No.”    

Of course I remember what happened. Several times during the interview, my mother said that I came to her right afterwards and told her everything.  But it was and still is a blur. And yes, I still can’t believe it happened because it is not me or who I am or is what happened like anything I have ever done before.  

As I have said several times previously, I am ashamed of and sorry for what happened that night and I wish I could relive that moment and change things, but I can’t.  I take full responsibility for my actions. What I have to do now is to prove to the world that this was an isolated incident and that is not who I am and I intend to do so by my behavior now and in the future.
