Hey, remember when Chris Brown nearly beat Rihanna to death? And then everyone shrugged it off, even though he nearly beat his girlfriend to death? Well, it turns out that allowing someone like that to completely dodge any sort of culpability for their actions accomplishes jack-squat, because last night he allegedly got into a fight with Frank Ocean, then left the scene before the cops arrived. Via TMZ …
UPDATE 10:45 PM PT: Police have cleared the scene. We’re told Chris Brown was not there when officers arrived — but they did speak to Frank Ocean. At this point … we’re told no one wants to press charges, and no arrests have been made.
UPDATE 3:00 AM PT: Cops say they will continue to investigate and want to speak with Chris Brown. They refer to Ocean as “the victim” because he’s the one who stuck around and spoke with police. Ocean said the fight started over a parking space (how L.A.) and Brown punched him. There were 6 people involved in the fight.
UPDATE: 5:20 AM PT: After the incident, Ocean tweeted “got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest [his dog] was there. cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the grammys.”
You know, we’ve gotten a few emails before, asking why we keep hounding Chris for beating his girlfriend. The answer: Because his entire career is basically tied to that moment. Violence is still a running theme in his music, how he handles himself, and is essentially the only reason he’s famous to begin with. He practically built his career off of abuse, and if you’re okay with that, there is something seriously wrong with that.
