Chris Brown Assaults Frank Ocean at L.A. Recording Studio


Chris Brown reportedly assaulted Frank Ocean outside a recording studio on Sunday, Us reports:

Brown_oceanThe 23-year-old has been accused of physically assaulting fellow R&B star Frank Ocean at a West Hollywood parking lot on Sunday Jan. 28. A report from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department confirms that "Chris Brown and the victim were involved in an altercation over a parking space. The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim," with Brown and Ocean's respective entourages being separated after a brief tussle.

Ocean tweeted: "got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there…cut my finger now I can't play w two hands at the grammys."

TMZ adds:

UPDATE 3:00 AM PT:  Cops say they will continue to investigate and want to speak with Chris Brown.  They refer to Ocean as "the victim" because he's the one who stuck around and spoke with police.  Ocean said the fight started over a parking space (how L.A.) and Brown punched him.  There were 6 people involved in the fight.

UPDATE 10:45PM PT: Police have cleared the scene. We're told Chris Brown was not there when officers arrived — but they did speak to Frank Ocean. At this point … we're told no one wants to press charges, and no arrests have been made.

    Where is the NRA on this one? Why aren’t they piping up to say that Ocean should have pulled out a gun in his own self defense? Surely that would have diffused the situation.

    One day Chris will lose his temper with someone who has a gun, and it will be a lesson he won’t forget, if he survives, that is. This guy’s really insecure.

    Thank you, BRAINS.

    I didn’t feel like dealing with DAN CORN COBB today. He’s been doing a sort Jekyll & Hyde thing lately. One day he speaks out against racism, and the next day he turns into David Duke. It’s peculiar but so unimportant.

    Chris Brown really needs to be “put down” as one would with a rabid dog. This isn’t just cause of my crush on the adorable Frank Ocean.
    CB is a menace to society.

  5. Sean says

    Does anyone really find his behavior surprising? He’s a tragic, predictable savage.

    The only shocking thing is that people still support him and that he has fans. And let’s not even mention Rihanna and how pathetic she is…

  6. Howard says

    So who or what is “everest” that Frank Ocean tweets about? I should probably be happy that I don’t know enough about popular culture that I don’t know the answer. LOL

  7. Kyle says

    Kissyfur has it correct. Not surprised that the altercation involved Ocean since he is out. Weren’t there some IMs published a while back that were between Brown and some other singer (Martin?) where they were discussing how Brown had been f-ed by Martin (literally, not figuratively)?

    Chris Brown, insufferable homophobe, pathetic self-loathing closet case. The evidence is irrefutable about Chris. He should just finally give it up and come out already. His career would probably take off to a new level instead of the slow, steady sink into the toilet of oblivion.

    BRAINS: PERFECT answer!

    The cancer of White Male Aggression that is behind nearly every single mass shooting in America is hardly ever addressed in a serious fashion!

    No one knows for certain if Ocean’s sexuality had anything to do with the altercation, but given Brown’s record of anti-gay remarks, he should have exercised caution and backed away from a conflict with Frank.

    Of course, we all know that common sense, discretion and self-awareness are not in Mr. Brown’s vocabulary.

  11. Sabian says

    Biased headline and reporting.

    From what I read:
    At a recording studio, Frank Ocean spotted Chris Brown’s car in “his” parking space, was pissed because he considers said parking space “his” and decided to block him in to prevent Brown from leaving while he belligerently (and with a shove) let him know that that was his territory. A member of Frank’s entourage then reportedly swung at Chris. From there Chris’s entourage got involved and it became a brawl.

    When this first circulated at TMZ and the music blogs last night, I started counting down to when the gay blogs would begin reporting on this and immediately rush to Frank’s defense — making him out to be the innocent ‘victim’ of Chris’s aggression…and, predictably, implying it to be homophobically motivated.

    Chris and Frank have a long history of active animosity that goes back much further than Frank revealing his sexuality, so immediately jumping to the conclusion that Chris was the instigator or bully (when most accounts point to Ocean as the aggressor here)…or that his fighting with Frank at all is rooted in homophobia is VERY ignorant and bias.

    I don’t even know how to express my continued contempt for Chris Brown. He continues to exhibit violent behavior, yet folks still buy his music and extol his dancing…he treats women poorly, etc; but he is held to a high esteem….he is a very poor role model and needs to fall from grace to change his behaviors

  13. Dan COBB says

    Just like that yellow/discharge puss that oozes out of your penis, I am also unwanted by gay men and demanding attention. Please just treat me like the insidious STD I am.

  14. Andrew says

    What I can’t understand is that Chris Brown lives in the USA; why hasn’t someone pulled a gun on him yet and done the world a favour? Yeah, I know – that was a low blow but you can’t hide the fact you wish it were true too.
