According to multiple sources, Chris Brown and Frank Ocean got into a physical “brawl” last night. The first account comes from TMZ, which stated:
Chris [Brown] was at Westlake Studio in the L.A. area listening to one of the artists he represents. The sources say as Chris went to leave, Frank Ocean and his crew blocked Chris from leaving. The sources say Frank said, “This is my studio, this is my parking spot.”
We’re told Chris went to shake Frank’s hand … and that’s when one of Frank’s people attacked Chris. Sources connected with Chris say one of Chris’ friends jumped in front and hit Frank’s friend.
Sources connected with Chris say Frank then came at Chris … Chris pushed him away and they started brawling.
And the second account, via Page Six:
The hotheaded musician is under investigation for assault after brawling with R&B singer Frank Ocean outside of a Los Angeles recording studio Sunday night, officials said.
Witnesses told investigating deputies that the fight was over a parking space - and that Brown threw the first punch.
Those statements conflict with initial reports of the fight, with other witnesses telling TMZ that someone attacked Chris as he tried to shake Ocean’s hand.
The third account comes straight from the source — Frank Ocean’s Twitter account:
And finally, Chris Brown posted the following photo from inside of his studio to his Instagram account. He captioned it with the following: “Working on my album. Not working on negativity. Focus on feeding ya family. Bullshit will forever be in the shadows.” Make of that as you will.
