A statement has been issued on behalf of singer Chris Brown following an incident last week when he was questioned by police and later released on bail.

19-year-old Brown is alleged to have attacked his girlfriend, Rihanna, in Los Angeles on February 8 and could face charges.

People.com reports the statement as saying "Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counselling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God's help, to emerging a better person.

"Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong.

"While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else.

"Those posts or writings under my name are frauds," the statement concludes.
