Chris Brown At The MTV VMAs Following Suge Knight Shooting — Is He Still Going?
Our insider confirmed that yes, Chris will still be attending the VMAs on Aug. 24. “The club was a separate incident that had nothing to do with him.”
Indeed, while several eyewitnesses reported on Twitter that Chris was the intended target, as a source close to Chris previously revealed to HollywoodLife.com, “He didn’t anything to do with that situation,” and he would be more than happy to cooperate with the authorities should they give him a call, because Chris “has nothing to hide.”

In fact, Chris “doesn’t condone stupid sh**” like what happened at 1OAK early on Aug. 24; “it’s a shame and real stupid,” our source previously revealed. “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time just like everyone else … someone could have been killed.”
Along with Suge, who is currently recovering in the ICU at a West Hollywood hospital, two other 1OAK patrons were shot. The shooter has yet to be revealed.
