Brandy opens up about the car accident

On last night's VH1's "Behind the Music", a teary-eyed Brandy finally opens up about one of the most devastating incidents in her life.

"I would hear what people would say, and still to this day they know that that's a button," Brandy says. "They know that they can call me a murderer or call me someone that killed someone. They know that is a button for me. A murderer is someone who premeditates it. I didn't wake up that day to be involved in a fatal car crash. I didn't plan for that. And if I could take it back, I would."

Brandy expands on dealing with the aftermath of the tragedy on "Behind the Music" I just wanted people to know that this wasn't news. It's not something that should be talked about like it's gossip. You don't like me? Fine. But don't use this situation to try to hurt me, because the guilt of being involved is enough. It's something that I'll never truly, truly get over. Ever," she explains.
