Singer Chris Brown has been accused of raising his hands on a woman during an argument. The incident took place in a Los Angeles house on Friday, said authorities. On Tuesday, a representative from the Los Angeles Police Department said officers had been notified of an ongoing argument at a place of residence in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles.
The representative added that the incident is being investigated as a battery and will be handed over to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
Although substantial details of the event are yet to be revealed, TMZ declared that the woman claimed to have been smacked in the head by Chris Brown. She further added that Brown’s hit came as a massive blow, hard enough for her hair weave to fall out.
However, no major injuries were described and it is undecided whether Brown will be pressed with charges. His attorney was also contacted for comment, but he refused to divulge any detail regarding the incident.
The Grammy winner also took to Instagram to address the floating TMZ report. With an Instagram story post, Brown wrote “YALL SO DAMN,” accompanied by a cap emoji, which denotes a lie in slang language.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the City Attorney’s Office said that they are yet to be referred to a case in the matter about Chris Brown.
The 32-year-old singer had been part of a similar controversy before with his then beau Rihanna, who accused Brown of assaulting her in 2009. After Rihanna’s accusations came to light, Brown was found guilty of felony assault and subsequently made to complete his probation in 2015.
Additionally, another of Brown’s girlfriends, model and actress Karrueche Tran filed a restraining order against him, which was approved in 2017. In 2018, the renowned singer was also accused by two women, who claimed to have been victims of sexual assault. The women, who refused to reveal their identities, said two of Brown’s associates had raped them at the singer’s own house.
The crimes didn’t stop here. In 2019, Chris Brown had been detained in Paris on account of rape and drug charges.
