AceShowbiz - Antonio Brown is extending an olive branch to his ex-girlfriend Chelsie Kyriss following their nasty split. The 31-year-old athlete has issued a public apology to his baby mama through a statement posted on his Instagram page on Sunday, February 2.
"First and foremost, I will love to Thanks the most high 'God' for allowing the 'God' thats in me to really look deep into myself," he began his post, along with a picture of him with Chelsie and their kids. "Mainly because greater the spirit thats in us,than the spirit thats Of the world."
He continued, "And me being a 'God' fearing man first, Truly understand That I owe my wonderful Kids and the mother @chelsie of my wonderful kids, The world Biggest Apology, for my Public out breaks through social media, and for the hurt that I may have took them through while on my Emotional roller Coaster that we all are faced with in Life. #TheGreaterMe."
Antonio isn't only regretting his wrongdoings to his ex, but also his recent behavior in the past few months. "I think I could have really expressed my emotions the right way when I get frustrated," he said in an interview with ESPN. "Being able to express myself in a positive way when things are not so positive, being able to really channel emotion from knowing different experiences and things I noticed while playing and have me emotionally react, and it may rub a lot of people the wrong way."
He then apologized to the NFL, saying, "I think I owe the whole NFL an apology [for] my past behavior. I think I could have done a lot of things better."
When asked if he felt that he owed an apology to "any of the women" he had been in a conflict with, Antonio replied, "I feel like I never really got in a conflict with no woman. I just feel like I'm a target so, anybody can come against me and say anything and I'm going to have to face it. There's no support, there's no egos, there's no rules in it, anyone can come after me for anything. No proof or whatever. 'He said, she's saying.' "
Of the concern that he might need mental health care, the football wide receiver said, "We all need mental help from our friends, from the people we hang around, from the people we consult with everyday. Yeah, we need mental help."
Previously, his ex Chelsie claimed that the former Pittsburgh Steelers player "desperately needs" help for his mental health issues. "My hope is that Antonio will get help and seek the mental health treatment that he so desperately needs so that he can be the father all of his children need and deserve," she wrote in a January Instagram post.
His attorney Lorne Berkeley, however, has determined the embattled athlete is "perfectly mentally fine." Antonio recently went through a court-ordered mental health evaluation following his arrest for battery case. While he has not seen the results of the test, Lorne told USA TODAY Sports on Saturday, "I've been provided conclusory terms in the sense of he's perfectly mentally healthy and fine. The results are very positive."
