Chris BrownChris Brown's mother, Joyce Hawkins, is addressing her son's 2009 assault on former girlfriend Rihanna, and his recent tantrum on the set of 'Good Morning America,' saying he needs to face his actions in order to fully move on from the incident.

"He has to learn to deal with it and go on with his life," the 'Beautiful People' singer's devoted mother told Sister 2 Sister magazine. "This is something that happened; it was a huge mistake... It was not good at all. But he is still a human being and we all make mistakes and we live and we go on with it."

Though Brown appeared to have gotten a handle on his anger issues, his violent outburst on the set of 'Good Morning America' on March 22 was a reminder that he still has very serious problems controlling his temper.
