Estelle has defended the media's treatment of Chris Brown, claiming that she loves and respects him.

The singer, who has collaborated with Brown for her new album All Of Me, insisted that people are being harsh on the star, who was convicted of assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

She told Vibe: "I feel like Chris is an incredible singer, musician, dancer, entertainer, and brain box as far as business and that's why I respect him and that's where we meet at because I have nothing else to go on.

"I get it, I understand, and I get the effects for young women. I can't speak on it because I wasn't there. Parents, raise your kids. Young men and women, raise your kids. Don't let us raise your children. That's my take on it."

Estelle added: "I respect him, I love him, he does amazing music, and has evolved. He's worked his ass off, so why are people still crucifying him?"

On his treatment by the media, she said: "I just think people need to worry about their lives per say. Don't worry about who he's recording songs [with], who he's doing this with if you enjoy the music.

"We all make mistakes. A sin is a sin is a sin. It's no big smoke, let the boy live. He does music."

Estelle recently addressed rumours that she will be a judge on the next series of The X Factor, saying: "I would absolutely do it."
