WEST HOLLYWOOD—Singers Chris Brown and
Ocean were allegedly involved in a scuffle outside the Westlake Recording Studio at
7265 Santa Monica Blvd. on Sunday, January 28. TMZ was the first to report about the fight that is believed to have occurred over a parking spot.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was called to the scene after receiving a report of six men fighting. "The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim," the department said in a statement released early Monday morning. The victim has not yet been indentified, but is believed to be R&B singer
Ocean. Ocean is nominated for six Grammy Awards next month including Album of the Year for “Channel Orange.”
Ocean released the following tweet from his Twitter account on Sunday night, “got jumped by chris [Brown] and a couple of guys. lol. i only wish everest was there.” He followed that tweet with another tweet stating, “cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the Grammys.” Ocean is expected to perform at the 55th Grammy Awards next month, whether or not singer still performs is not known.
This is not Brown’s first run in with the law. Back in 2009, Brown was involved in an attack on girlfriend pop singer Rihanna after the couple left Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party. The attack led Brown being placed on probation. Reports have recently surfaced indicating that the two may be back together with photos that they have released from social networking sites like Twitter and Tumblr.
In June 2012, Brown was involved in a fight at a
New York nightclub that involved rapper Drake. He posted to his Twitter account a photo of injuries he suffered because of the incident. No arrests were made in the case. Ocean was recently pulled over by authorities in
CA for possession of marijuana, speeding and driving with a suspended license. Ocean had his license confiscated and was ticketed by authorities.
Police have not made in arrests in the scuffle, as Brown had already left the scene by the time authorities arrived. Officials indicated that the investigation is ongoing and that they would like to speak to Brown about the fight.
Reports have indicated that singer
Ocean is considering pressing charges against Brown who according to witnesses threw the first punch. TMZ released a photo on Tuesday, January 29 showing Chris Brown with a cast over his right hand. Brown has received flack in the recent days for a recent photo that he posted on Instagram comparing himself to Jesus.
