Brown, 20, had been told to stay at least 100 yards away from the Barbadian singer for the next five years, after he pleaded guilty to assaulting her during a row in February this year. And while speaking on New York radio station Hot 97 on October 21 he revealed to DJ Angie Martinez that he is still in love with the Umbrella singer.
"We've been friends since I was like 15, we got serious when I was, like, 17," Contactmusic quoted him as saying. "Feelings are feelings and they don't go away overnight, especially if you sit down and be like, 'Look, I'm (going to) really be in this relationship with you, past whatever the case, past our busy schedules, past us being two of the biggest artists.' I really care about her," he added.
