That food ain’t loyal!
In a new interview, Chris Brown reveals his weight skyrocketed from 180 pounds to a staggering 215 pounds after serving 108 days in prison.
The “Fine China” singer even admits he was embarrassed to be seen in public following his release back in June.
“My normal weight is like 180 [and] I was 215 when I got out of jail,” he explained. “I couldn't fit in my jeans, fit in my clothes. I was scared to go out. I was like, ‘Man, people will see me and I look fat.’”
Luckily for the 25-year-old, he got right back into his exercise routine and slimmed down. “So after a while I went and played a lot of basketball, a lot of cardio…[and] I was always dancing, always dancing, trying to get my body back,” he shared.
As for his experience in jail, it’s something he’ll always remember.
“It was definitely one of the things I’ll never forget. For me, I just learned that nobody’s invincible, everybody’s equal, at the same time no amount of celebrity status, no amount of how many fans love you, no amount of anything can deter you away from the real if you make a mistake and nobody’s excusable,” the performer said.
“I think for me it was a humbling experience for me to become a man and mature.”
Chris, who was charged with assault in the battery case with ex-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009, was sent to prison in March after he was kicked out of rehab for violating “internal rules.”
He also talked about his therapy sessions with Extra.
“For me it was more of an opportunity for me to understand my feelings and understand what I was dealing with in my own life,” he admitted. “I didn’t know how to express myself without it being anger or aggression because I felt a certain way, but now it’s more of me being able to control it and understand it.”
