Chris Brown Allegedly Pulled Gun On Woman
Chris Brown allegedly pulled a gun on a woman on Tuesday morning. Police are now investigating the accusation.
Brown and the unidentified woman were reportedly having an argument at a home in Los Angeles. The alleged victim claims the singer threatened her with a gun. She called 911, and cops came and took a formal report.
Now officials have launched a criminal assault investigation, according to TMZ. It’s not clear if the incident took place in Brown’s own home, or another residence. The performer’s connection to the alleged victim is also unknown at this time.
Brown, of course, infamously pleaded guilty to felony assault in 2009 for violently attacking then-girlfriend Rihanna. Last year, Brown’s probation ended, officially closing the case. But in the years between, the performer was involved in a number of other high-profile incidents.
Perhaps most notably, in 2013, Brown was involved in an altercation in Washington, D.C., leading to time in rehab and a brief stint in jail that was limited due to overcrowding. That said, most accusations against Brown over the years have not led to criminal charges. He is, however, currently facing a lawsuit from former manager Mike G, who claims Brown beat him up earlier this year. Gossip Cop will have updates.
UPDATE: TMZ is now reporting the incident took place at a gathering, where Ray J was among the attendees. The site says “uninvited guests” showed up, and among them was the woman who has made the accusation against Brown. She was allegedly asked to leave, but Brown’s involvement is not clear, as one source maintains to the outlet that the singer was asleep during these happenings.
By the time Ray J left, police had arrived outside and he was temporarily detained by police. He allegedly was prohibited from taking his car, and had to Uber home. Brown is believed to still be inside the residence, now said to be his own home, and cops are still on the scene.
UPDATE 2: In response to the allegations and claims he’s “barricaded” himself inside his home, Brown is BLASTING the police in Instagram videos, which show him ranting about the investigation.
