Chris Brown has described his assault on girlfriend Rihanna as "the greatest regret of my life."

The rapper was convicted of assaulting the singer in 2009 following an argument on the eve of the Grammys, but they have now rekindled their romance.

Chris opened up to the Daily Mirror at Elton John's Aids Foundation Oscars fund raising party saying: "Sometimes you row, you fight, with the one you love and things get said, stuff spirals. That night was the deepest regret of my life, the biggest mistake.

"But she loves me - what can I say? I'm forgiven... but, yes, I worked hard for it."

Rihanna's reunion with Chris has caused some controversy and many people have not forgotten what he did.

But Chris, 23, said: "People attack me and criticise me, it happens all the time. But they don't know me, and they don't know us. It doesn't bother me any more. Other people can judge us but they don't know anything."

He added: "I've learned a lot since that night and I've grown up. I was very young and I took a lot of stuff, fame, for granted.

"I didn't understand it. The support from those who do know me and the fans, who are incredible, got me through."

Aquarius:

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
