Although R&B singer Chris Brown appears to have suffered another caught-on-tape explosion this week in Los Angeles over a $10 valet service charge, a new twist has emerged which paints some positive light on Breezy.
According to the latest reports, Brown merely became overly excited because he was overcharged by a valet employee.
Chris Brown says the reason he lost his temper and threatened a valet last night was because the guy tried to fleece him ... TMZ has learned. A source connected to Chris tells TMZ ... the valet outside PINZ bowling alley in Studio City, CA -- where Chris was attending a charity event -- was supposed to charge $5 a pop ... but when Chris tried to pick his car up, the valet tried to scam him by charging $10. The source says other people who parked at PINZ last night were charged $5. Chris believes he was singled out because he's famous. Chris says it's not about the money ... it's the principle of the thing. (TMZ)
Despite this latest twist, footage of the Brown curse-filled incident has made its way across the Internet this week.
In the clip, which you can watch below, the R&B singer can be heard saying, "Give me my keys, f*ck 10 dollars," to a valet in front of PINZ bowling alley. Brown reportedly refused to pay because he was at the event for a short amount of time and didn't think the fee was fair. Brown then proceeds to tell the valet, "Give me my keys! We're gonna turn this spot up, I promise you," before someone from his entourage hands the man $10. Brown then snatches his keys and storms off towards his car. (Rolling Stone)
A few weeks ago, Chris B. was involved in a physical altercation with fellow singer Frank Ocean.
Police say that Grammy-nominated singer Frank Ocean is "desirous of prosecution" after an alleged altercation with dancer-singer Chris Brown at a West Hollywood studio over a parking spot. Steve Whitmore, a spokesperson for the L.A. Sheriff's Office, told the Wall Street Journal, "we investigate and then we give it to the district attorney's office. This is a misdemeanor charge. We have no idea if anybody is going to be officially arrested." Brown has not been charged in the case. (Wall Street Journal)
Recently, the 23 year-old talked about how the media portrays him in a bad light.
Brown has blown off the public backlash against him since reuniting with Rihanna, including Seth MacFarlane's Oscar joke in which he compared the "unspeakable violence" of "Django Unchained" to a "date night for Rihanna and Chris Brown." "People attack me and criticize me, it happens all the time," he said. "But they don't know me, and they don't know us. It doesn't bother me anymore." He added, "Other people can judge us but they don't know anything." (ABC News)
