Chris Brown, the talented singer and now father has had a checkered past. Seen more for his run-ins with the law than his singing ability. Chris served an additional two months, judge-ordered sentence in a California anger management rehab facility.

But the talented singer has been through a lot–much of which was before he became famous.

When most young boys are at home playing video games, Chris Brown says he watching pornography and having sex.

In an interview when he was 24-years-old, the singer revealed he lost his virginity at the tender age of eightWhile many would see eight as far too young, the singer claims it just started him down the road of being a ladies man early on.

“So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it,” Chris said. He went on to say “It was a different world living in the country.” Referring to the country parts of Virgina where Chris grew up.

But now seeing himself in his 2-year-old daughter Royalty, Chris shifted his focus to her.

Brown has joint custody of Royalty, his first child, whose mother is his ex-girlfriend, Nia Guzman. And even with his hectic schedule, Chris is happy to see his little girl any time he can.

“That’s the best part of being a dad,” Brown said. “You know, doing those little things. Bedtime is crazy for me ’cause I always was like…trying to avoid bedtime when I was a kid, like, ‘No, Mom, just 15 more minutes, please!’ So I’ll keep like the kids’ channel on and turn it all the way low and turn all the lights out, and you know, I’ll lay in the bed with her and like rub her back until she actually falls asleep. But some nights, she’s not having it. Like, she just is totally energetic—’Aaaaaaah!!!'”
