Singer Chris Brown is struggling to deal with the public backlash after busting-up Rihanna last month.
Brown is facing almost five years behind bars if convicted of assaulting Rihanna which left the Umbrella singer beaten and bruised.
Although the couple reconciled, Brown’s career has taken a knock since the headline-grabbing altercation.
And now actor Tyrese Gibson insists Brown is not coping with the ordeal as well as it may seem.
He says, “Although he appears to be really strong through all of this, it’s really taking a toll on his spirit. People like me and Puffy, we’re just trying to show him love and keep his spirits up while he’s going through all of the heat.”
The actor adds, “It’s really hard for him to focus right now on his music, even though he really wants to.
On one hand it’s hard for us to feel sorry for him, but on the other hand, he’s young and dumb just like we all were. We just hope he toughens up because if he goes to prison…it’s survival of the fittest.
