Frank Ocean to Press Charges Against Chris Brown After Parking Space Brawl?
Ocean claims Brown “jumped” him, though some witnesses to the melee insist the 'Thinkin Bout You' singer was the one who started the fight over a parking spot that he believed was rightfully his. “This is my studio, this is my parking spot,” declared Ocean, according to a statement made by Brown’s witnesses. The argument turned into a messy six-man fray, resulting in the following dramatic tweet by Ocean: “cut my finger now I can't play w two hands at the grammys.”
Ocean "is desirous of prosecution in this incident," said spokesman Steve Whitmore. However, Reuters maintains that such charges have yet to be filed against Brown.
Brown, who was sentenced to five years’ probation after his assault on Rihanna back in 2009, shared his thoughts on the matter via Instagram this morning by sharing a painting of Jesus on the cross. “Painting the way I feel today,” read the caption beneath the photo, which has since been taken offline.
This isn’t the first time Ocean and Brown have been at odds -- in fact, their hostile relationship dates back a few years, as evidenced by a heated Twitter brawl from June 2011. Meanwhile, both singers are up for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.
