Chris Brown may have just been slapped with a five year probation as his sentence for beating up Rihanna, but one woman is still standing by his side-his mom. Chris mother Joyce Hawkins has spoken out in defense of her son via his fansite, thanking fans for their support through this time, and mentioning Chris goodness. She writes: I just want to say from the bottom of my heart thank you for your continued support. Im sorry I wasnt allowed to speak to anyone as this case was ongoing. I can now say this has been the most painful moment in my entire life, but knowing that you were still standing by Chris side in his time of need made this a little easier for us. Because of all your prayers, God brought him through. I just want to say God has never failed me and never will. All moms and dads please stand by your children and pray for their goodness each and every day. I made a promise, I would never be ashamed of him no matter where I am or who I talk to. You see this whole thing isnt about Chris, its about God. He wants to show all of you the goodness of him through Chris. Chris will be addressing all of his fans very soon. We love you so much and so does God. We dont blame Joyce for sticking by her sons side. In fact, many mothers would do the same thing. But it sounds like shes acting like he did nothing wrong We just hope we start seeing some of this supposed goodness from Chris from now on - HS
