Two of the biggest stars in R&B music (with a history of bad blood) just got into a physical altercation! According to TMZ, Chris Brown and Frank Ocean were both working out of the Westlake Studios in West Hollywood, Los Angeles earlier this evening (Sunday, Jan.27). As the story goes, Brown was attempting to leave but couldn’t drive off because Ocean and his crew had blocked him in. Frank Ocean was quoted as saying, “This is my studio, this is my parking spot” before Brown tried to calm the situation by reaching in for a handshake. That’s when members from both Ocean’s and Brown’s camps allegedly jumped in and started brawling.
As we mentioned above, this isn’t the first time Chris and Frank have had beef. Back in the summer of 2011, the two crooners had a war of words on Twitter. Then, the following night, Frank and Tyler, the Creator threw more jabs at Brown during a show in Los Angeles. There was also this infamous video of a group of guys claiming to be Brown’s cousins, stalking Ocean on a Los Angeles street. But later, the two called a truce via Twitter.
Back to the current flare-up….TMZ reports police have been called on the scene and there should be more details to come.
Update3: Bossip received a similar quote from police
“We’re currently investigating this as a battery, but it could be treated as an assault,”Officer Lyle Knight told BOSSIP. “In the process of the investigation they’ll decide whether it’s a hate crime.”
UPDATE: Frank Ocean hits Twitter to confirm the fight…and report an injury!
