Chris Brown Mother: Singer Tweets Photo, 'I Love Her!'

A new woman in Chris Brown's life amidst the Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, "is there such thing as loving two people?" scandal? Before he was one of music's most controversial stars, Chris Brown was just a young boy, hugging his mother on the beach. The 23-year-old R&B singer tweeted this adorable photo of him and his mother Joyce Hawkins Sunday, with the caption "I love her!"

For the record, Hawkins responded to the photo by writing "Angel I love you so much more. Memories R Priceless," via her Twitter handle, the appropriately named "MomBreezy".
