Chris Brown Apologizes for Rihanna Beating

File this under "It's About Freakin' Time."

TMZ.com has obtained a video of Chris Brown finally apologizing to his fans for February's assault on Rihanna.

In the video Chris says that he couldn't speak out publicly earlier due to legal issues, but that he is "ashamed" and that he wishes he had the chance "to live those few moments again."

He calls his actions "inexcusable" and admits to have sought help from his pastor and his mother in dealing with his rage issues.

Watch the video for yourself and let me know what you think. To me, it comes off as a pretty scripted public service announcement, but maybe I'm just jaded.
