Chris Brown Shows Up to Court With Rihanna

When troubled singer Chris Brown hurled a rock through his mother's car window earlier this week he didn't care if the rock injured her or caused her to lose control of her car. Brown was outraged because his mom, Joyce Hawkins, suggested that he remain in treatment at a rehab center.

This is not the first time Brown has lashed out at his own mother. Industry insiders have whispered about Brown abusing his own mother for years.

Brown's violent behavior stems from his anger and rage toward her for not protecting him from his violent father as a boy. In an interview with MTV's Sway, Brown recalled watching his mother suffer abuse at the hands of his father. He told Sway that watching the abuse heaped upon his mother was "an influence in me about how to treat a woman."

"I used to always feel the hate for anybody that disrespected a lady. Or called a lady the B-word ... or just disrespected her."

But the family history of abuse had the opposite affect on young Chris.
