(Newser) – A video clip making the gossip rounds, in which Chris Brown says he doesn’t remember beating then-girlfriend Rihanna, is “not representative of what I said” to CNN’s Larry King, the singer tells People today in a statement. “Of course I remember what happened,” Brown adds. “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.”

“The first four times—or however 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,” Brown continues. “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.’”
