UPDATE: CNN confirms that the interview with Chris Brown will air on Sept. 2. The star will be joined by his mother, Joyce Hawkins, and his attorney, Mark Geragos.


Chris Brown has apologized to Rihanna (several times, he says) and fessed up on video for the world to see.

But apparently the disgraced R&B star still had something to say, because he sat down with Larry King Wednesday at CNN's Hollywood headquarters for his first interview since his Feb. 8 arrest for assaulting his ex, E! News has learned exclusively.

And it was a no-holds-barred chat during which Brown answered every question put to him, according to our source. We assume some of King's inquiries pertained to the 20-year-old's probation report, which indicated he got rough with Rihanna more than once over the course of their stormy relationship.

The insider tells E! News the interview will air sometime next week on Larry King Live. A network rep could not immediately be reached for comment.

Brown was formally sentenced yesterday to five years' probation, 52 weeks of domestic-violence counseling and 180 days of community labor, which he's planning to complete in his home state of Virginia.
