In a sneak peek at his new documentary Welcome To My Life, Chris talked about becoming public enemy number one and admitted he "felt like a f*****g monster".

"I was thinking about suicide and everything else," he said. "I wasn't sleeping, I wasn't eating. I just was getting high."

Chris was sentenced to five years of probation and community service for attacking the Diamonds singer.

The documentary also chronicles the 26-year-old's rise to fame.

Chris, now dad to daughter Royalty, has yet to announce a release date.
