A remorseful CHRIS BROWN apologized for beating up former gal pal RIHANNA earlier this year, regretfully saying that his mother -- herself a victim of domestic violence -- "taught me way better than that," reports THE NEW YORK POST. "The once-squeaky clean BROWN posted a two-minute video on his own website, saying he wanted to apologize months ago, but was urged to keep quiet by his lawyers.
"I felt it was time that you hear directly from me that I am sorry," said BROWN. "I wish I had the chance to live those few moments again, but unfortunately I can't." BROWN said he's begged his mother and RIHANNA for forgiveness for the GRAMMY weekend attack in LOS ANGELES. "My mother and my spiritual teachings have taught me way better than that. I have told RIHANNA countless times and I am telling you today that I'm truly, truly sorry ... that I wasn't able to handle the situation both differently and better."
"BROWN copped a plea bargain with L.A. prosecutors last month and will avoid jail time."
