Chris Brown Investigated for Assault After Brawl with Frank Ocean

A fight broke out between the two over A PARKING SPACE.

In case you had any shadow of doubt, Chris Brown's latest alleged misdemeanor furthers the notion that he might just be a fairly shit human. The woman-beating, pub-brawling musician is under investigation for assaulting Frank Ocean, one of the most loved figures in R&B, over a parking space (!).

An "all-out brawl" supposedly broke out between the two parties and their possies in a parking lot outside a recording studio in West Hollywood on Sunday night. According to the New York Post, witnesses told officials that Chris threw the first punch. Frank took to Twitter to report on his version of events (Everest is his dog):

TMZ, however, paints a picture in favour of Chris Brown and their sources maintain that Frank Ocean was the assailant. According to them, Frank Ocean and his crew blocked Chris Brown from leaving the parking lot. "We're told Chris went to shake Frank's hand ... and that's when one of Frank's people attacked Chris. Sources connected with Chris say one of Chris' friends jumped in front and hit Frank's friend. Sources connected with Chris say Frank then came at Chris ... Chris pushed him away and they started brawling."

So far no one has pressed charges however officials are investigating, seeing as Chris Brown fled the scene after the brawl. Given his track record of being a complete asshole to almost everyone he encounters, it's hard to believe that Chris Brown is in the right here.

Let's also remember that Chris Brown dated Rihanna, then threatened to kill her (and almost did); collaborated with Drake, then bottled him. Similarly, he has indicated admiration of Frank Ocean in the recent past, publishing on his since-deleted Twitter, "My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ......... Love who u wanna love. It's ur decision. People stop searching for BS" and "Everyone is so quick to point the wrong fingers at each other! Ask urself... Am I Doing everything I can to help the world ????" It's probably time for Chris Brown to ask himself that question.

To borrow a quote from Gawker commenter 'Soulpatch': "Can we put Chris Brown, Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan on an island together with nothing but a coconut?"
