Chris Brown and Frank Ocean tango over a parking spot

Singing blows between world famous R&B singers

Chris Brown is apparently quick to anger, wait we already knew that though.  Early Sunday, Breezy and the more beloved, less “history of violence” R&B singer Frank Ocean got into a brawl over a parking spot at a Los Angeles recording studio.  Both singers took to the Twitter waves to defend themselves post-fact, Brown vaguely referring to the incident, tweeting, “Working on my album. Not working on negativity. Focus on feeding ya family. Bullshit will forever be in the shadows” while a significantly mellower Ocean wrote, “got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. I only wish everest [his Bernese mountain dog] was there.” 

The facts on the altercation between Brown and Ocean are still fuzzy.  The flying fists were a result of a misunderstanding regarding a parking spot where Brown was parked. If you’re from LA, you will understand that a good parking spot is actually a very reasonable thing to fight for. No one is sure whose posse was first to strike, but police have written up Ocean as the “victim” of the faceoff.  While police are asking questions, neither party is looking to press charges, and Brown rolled out before they even got to the scene, leaving Ocean free reign to give his version of the story.

At this point, neither Brown nor Ocean have offered further comment beyond their Twitter posts.  Various members of their posses talk smack about who started what and why, but further investigation has yet to prove the true reason for rage.

This fight isn’t the first time Brown’s temper has led to violence.  His attack on Rihanna before the 2009 Grammy awards show elicits incredibly strong reactions from the blogosphere to this day.  Apropos, Rihanna has so far remained silent on the altercation between Ocean and Brown.  Brown also attacked hip-hop star Drake and his entourage at a nightclub last year.  Chris Brown: a study in syrupy sweet and prickly sass.
