Chris Brown, 19, who was being held on a $50,000 bail under a felony charge, spoke about his family's history with alleged abuse, in a 2007 interview with GIANT magazine, according to NBC reports.

The R&B star-to-be told his mother, when he was 11, that he would go to jail for killing his allegedly abusive stepfather.

I just want you to know that I love you, Brown told his mother, according to the magazine. But I'm gonna take a baseball bat one day while you at work, and I'm gonna kill him.

He used to hit my mom ... He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself, Brown claimed during the interview. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, 'I'm just gonna go crazy on him one day,' I hate him to this day.

Chris Brown has been arrested for criminal threats in connection with an alleged violent incident with a woman reported to be the singer's girlfriend, Robyn Rihanna Fenty, 20, on Saturday night, has been released.
