Chris Brown is no stranger to domestic violence.

The 19-year-old performer has spoken out in the past about growing up in a violent home with an abusive stepfather.

"He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, ‘I'm just gonna go crazy on him one day…' I hate him to this day," Brown told Giant magazine in 2007.

The R&B star discussed his experience with domestic abuse on Tyra Banks' talk show in 2007.

"It affected me…especially toward women, I treat them differently. Because I don't want to go through the same thing or put a woman through the same thing that that person put my mom through."

The talk show host asked Brown if he had any advice for others who might be going through a similar experience. "Try to overcome it. Pray. I had the Bible under the pillow."
