Adebayor's started so well for Man City
Can a violent partner ever change?
Chris Brown has apologised publicly for the first time for assaulting his former girlfriend, Rihanna. The R&B star, who has pleaded guilty to the attack, says he accepts full responsibility for his actions and wants to express his deepest regret. He'll be formally sentenced next month to five years probation with six months of community labour. He'll also be ordered to complete a year of domestic violence classes.
Chris Brown says there are no excuses for what happened and this his actions were inconsistent with the way he's tried to live his life.
So can a once violent partner change their behaviour? Women's Aid say although it is possible, it's not very common.
