Chris Brown Accused of Assaulting Frank Ocean
Another day, another violent feud for Chris Brown. The 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.
Although the LASD does not mention the Grammy-nominated Ocean by name, he tweeted about the incident himself. "got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol," Ocean, 24, wrote. "cut my finger now I can't play w two hands at the grammys." Ocean's debut album, channel ORANGE, topped many critics' Best Albums of 2012 lists, and has been nominated for six Grammys.
Brown's past assaults include his 2009 pre-Grammys attack on girlfriend Rihanna and a 2012 club brawl with Drake. Back in July 2012, the "Don't Wake Me Up" singer denied reports that he directed a homophobic slur against Ocean, who had recently revealed that he was bisexual, and that his first love was a man.
"My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ......... Love who u wanna love. It's ur decision," Brown tweeted at the time. "People stop searching for BS."
