Though Chris is currently in jail after being arrested for felony assault on Oct. 27, a source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that he’s innocent of all charges. In fact, HE is the victim, and was just trying to defend himself from a possible attack.
Chris Brown may just be the victim of a seriously unfortunate situation. After allegedly assaulting a man and getting arrested on felony charges in Washington D.C. on Oct. 27, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the singer has been wrongly accused and is actually innocent.
Chris Brown Is Innocent
“He didn’t hit anybody and he damn sure didn’t use a gay slur,” the source says. The insider says that multiple men bum-rushed Chris and his entourage in an attempt to get onto his tour bus, which is actually what started the confrontation.
“They could have been strapped or carrying guns on them,” the source points out. “Fact is, we didn’t know them and told them to get away.”
Which is when things got physical, but only to a degree — and Chris was not involved in the confrontation. “Words went back and forth and a little shoving and stuff but Chris didn’t hit anybody. He’s on probation and he has bodyguards and people to protect his space.”
From this perspective, it really sounds like the fight was a case of self-defense and that Chris and his team were just trying to ward off unwanted intruders.
Chris Brown’s Alleged Assault Victim Speaks Out
Obviously, this isn’t the story that the alleged victim is telling. The man actually claimed that Chris punched him in the face and broke his nose in an interview with TMZ.
He stated that Chris got upset when he and his friends photo-bombed a picture Breezy was taking with two female fans, and then things got violent. Chris reportedly said “I’m not into this gay s**t, I’m into boxing,” and then threw a punch.
Chris is still in jail and will remain there until at least Monday, Oct. 28 when he makes a court appearance. “He’s going to be alright. Nobody’s worried about anything,” the source concludes.
One can only hope.
