    Well, last night, a fan caught a video of them backstage at the Millennium Tour.

    Lizzo asked Chris Brown for a picture in new video: “Can I get a picture with you because you’re my favorite person in the whole f*cking world.”

    In the video, Lizzo is seen approaching Chris. "Can I get a picture with you?" she asked excitedly. "Because you're my favorite person in the whole fucking world."

    People were not happy with this interaction, given Chris's past.

    In 2009, Chris pleaded guilty to felony assault against Rihanna. Then, in 2016, Chris was accused of "threatening a woman with a gun at his California home," according to CNN. Most recently, in 2019, he was accused of rape but ultimately not charged.

    Lizzo has worked with and promoted nutritionists and trainers whose sole purpose is weight loss. Now she asked for a photo with CHRIS BROWN and said he was her favorite person in the world ?? A serial abuser and stalker? I really can’t ignore this pattern, it sucks.
