Chris Brown is under police investigation for an alleged assault at a Los Angeles recording studio last night involving six men, one of whom happens to be fellow musician Frank Ocean. Ocean tweeted this early this morning:
got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there.— frank ocean (@frank_ocean) January 28, 2013
And despite the "lol", that tweet doesn't appear to be a joke. The AP reports, that the fight was over a parking space:
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says deputies responded to a report Sunday night of six men fighting.
The department says the altercation, reportedly over a parking space, "allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim."
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.
This, of course, isn't the first time Brown has had a physical run-in with another music superstar. Brown was charged with a felony assault after beating up his girlfriend, Rihanna, in March of 2009, and Brown had a bottle-throwing run-in with Drake in June of 2012.
