Chris Brown is at the center of another assault investigation. The troubled rapper, who is still on probation for the 2009 beating of girlfriend Rihanna, is accused of attacking R&B star Frank Ocean over a parking space at Westlake Recording Studios in West Hollywood on Sunday. In addition to Brown and Ocean, four other men were involved in the alleged altercation.
“Chris Brown and the victim were involved in an altercation over a parking space. The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim,” the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement.
Ocean tweeted about the incident. “Got jumped by chris and a couple guys. Lol,” he wrote. “Cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the grammys.”
Brown has not commented.
The 23-year-old has a history of violent incidents. He had a violent meltdown in March 2011 following a Good Morning America interview in which he was asked about beating Rihanna. Brown reportedly broke a window in his dressing room and screamed at GMA staff members before storming out of the building. Last June he was involved in a nightclub brawl with Drake. Eight people were injured in the altercation. Neither Brown nor Drake was charged in the incident.
