Chris Brown, 26, is being accused of punching a female fan, Liziane Gutierrez (printed with her permission) in the right eye on Saturday, January 2, after she allegedly snuck her phone into his private party at the Palms hotel in Las Vegas. After allegedly getting the phone past security, she apparently took a photo of the singer, and he reportedly became enraged and struck the woman, according to TMZ. Check out the photo of Liziane’s alleged injury from Chris now.
Liziane sent a picture of her injuries to TMZ (CLICK HERE TO SEE THEM) on January 2, which included bruises around her right eye, as well as swelling. She alleges that the injuries were caused by Chris punching her directly in the eye after he reportedly caught her taking photos of him and the party at his private event. Chris allegedly yelled at her, as well.
Liziane reportedly left the party and called the police a few hours later. When police responded, they assessed the situation and did not take her to the hospital. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department PIO Officer Jesse Roybal told HollywoodLife.com, “We are investigating a report of a battery involving Chris Brown.” Officer Roybal could not provide any more details on the matter, but said that a police report would be coming.
If this incident is true, this is a major departure from the reformed Chris we’ve come to see lately. Though Chris is now known as a family man, who’s revamped his life to dedicate himself to raising his daughter, Royalty, there was the famous incident in 2009 that once defined him. Before the Grammy awards, Chris brutally beat then-girlfriend Rihanna. Since then, he attended anger management courses, and has made peace with Rihanna.
UPDATE — HollywoodLife.com received the following statement from Chris’ rep regarding the accusation:
“Making false accusations seems to be a pattern of behavior for Ms. Gutierrez. Whatever her motives, her statements are unequivocally untrue.
Ms. Gutierrez was escorted out of the private after party at the Palms Casino Resort for being disruptive and out of control. Once she was in the hallway, while waiting for Chris Brown’s security to bring out her phone, she had a total meltdown — throwing her purse to the ground and claiming that she ‘could buy everyone in the hotel’ –as witnessed by numerous people waiting to get into the party. The Palms Casino Resort security also saw her wild behavior via hotel security cameras and immediately came up to the hallway to escort her out of the hotel.
Her claim that she had her phone in her possession inside the after party and was able to take a photo causing an altercation with Chris Brown is a complete fabrication. Her statements are completely false and not based in reality. This seems like a clear case of retaliation for her bruised ego.”
