Jordin Sparks has Chris Brown’s back.

The “American Idol” alum continues to defend the “Run It” singer after his name was booed at the AMAs recently.

“People (need) to have the opportunity to grow,” she told Page Six exclusively at the 36th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards earlier this week.

“If we don’t give them the opportunity, how do they get better? So that’s kind of my thoughts on it.”

She added that she “just feel[s] like everybody needs to have more breaks,” noting that people “kind of pick and choose who we forgive.”

Sparks, 32, further acknowledged that “there are a lot of people who didn’t agree with what I said which is fine because we’re all supposed to be able to do that.”

She continued, “But I also think that we have to allow people to be able to learn that. I think that whoever you are.”

However, she stressed that she and Brown are not friends — despite collaborating on a song back in 2008.

Last month, Brown’s name was booed when Kelly Rowland announced him as the winner of the Favorite Male R&B artist category.

“Excuse me,” Rowland, 41, said amid boos from the crowd as she accepted the award on his behalf. “Chill out.”

She later defended him, telling TMZ that “we are humans” and that “we all need to be forgiven for anything that we could be doing, anything that we’re thinking.”

Brown, 33, has been a controversial figure since assaulting Rihanna in 2009. And, earlier this year, he was also sued for allegedly drugging and raping a woman while at a party in Miami in December 2020.


Brown has had a long list of legal issues over the years.
