First it was Kanye …. now Chris Brown can find support in Russell Simmons. Yesterday, the Hip-Hop mogul took to his site and spoke on how Brown is no different from any other young star plagued by instant fame.

“Chris is suffering from the same thing as almost every young star has gone through, including the Disney kids. And, having lost control, some of these young artists, sometimes, do an unspeakable thing at a moment of time. And they pay the price. But, as I and my team have said repeatedly on my site, what’s not fair is artists paying the price of the sins in their young lives for the rest of their lives. Again, and again, and again. “

Simmons believes it’s time for everyone to stop holding the past against against Chris…..and finally give him a break.

“I’m just saying, give this man a break. I spoke to him last night for a long time and I know how good of a young man he is. He’s having the same type of struggles that all those other Disney kids have and all the other people who have instant fame… And because of that one regretful incident, no one will give him a break.” (Source)

We’re glad somebody out there understands where Breezy is coming from….
