Former boxer Mike Tyson has slammed Chris Brown for his alleged attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna - calling the R&B singer a "baby".
Brown, 19, has been charged with two felonies - assault and making criminal threats - following an alleged altercation with Rihanna in a car in Los Angeles in February (09) which left her bloodied and bruised.
And Tyson, who was accused of physical abuse by his ex-wife, actress Robin Givens, blames Brown's youth and inexperience for his relationship woes.
He tells MTV.com, "My personal opinion about that is, he's just a baby. He's just a little baby that don't know how to handle his emotions when it comes to a woman. And he probably hears this and thinks, 'I know how to handle my emotions'; we all think we do.
"You look at this person and you might be crazy in love, but we don't know how to handle those feelings.
"You can't abuse them. It's really sick..
"Do I think it's right to beat up a woman? No - hell no. Have I hit a woman before? Hell yeah. Was I wrong? Hell yeah. I'm a product of that environment. Do I regret ever doing that? Hell yeah. Would I do it again? Never."
Brown is due back in court in L.A. on 29 April (09).
