Chris Brown began his career as the fresh-faced Virginia-born crooner whose smooth vocals, boyish good looks and natural talent for dancing were seemingly poised to skyrocket him to Usher-in-the-'90s level stardom.

As most of us remember, that all changed in one pivotal moment that still haunts Brown today. In 2009, the singer was arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna. It was a scandal many believed would permanently end his career. Further complicating matters was a string of social media outbursts and questionable decisions many felt were indicative of a lack of remorse.

Ahead of the release of his upcoming documentary, Welcome to My Life, the polarizing singer unveiled a two-minute trailer that offers a look at his present-day life, and for the first time goes into detail about the incidents that have marred his career.

While Brown shows a decidedly softer side in many moments, people have already taken the trailer to task. Specifically for the portion in which he confesses contemplating suicide.

Brown recently landed in hot water after taunting singer Kehlani regarding her attempted suicide following a scandal involving his good friend Kyrie Irving and singer PARTYNEXTDOOR.
