Chris Brown Addresses Reports He Pointed a Gun at a Woman: 'I'm Innocent'
By Antoinette Bueno
Chris Brown refused to come out of his Los Angeles home on Tuesday, after LAPD arrived at his property following allegations that a gun was pulled on a woman.
LAPD is currently trying to get into contact with Brown and are attempting to obtain a search warrant, after a 911 call came in at 3:12 a.m. from a female needing help outside a residence in the 5000 block of Corbin Avenue, police told ET on Tuesday. The investigation is now being handed over to Robbery Homicide Division. There have been no arrests at this time, and it’s still an ongoing investigation.
Brown, 27, addressed his 30 million Instagram followers from inside his home on Tuesday, and adamantly denied any wrongdoing in a profanity-laced rant.
"So, I'm sleep half the damn night, I just wake up, all these motherf**king helicopter choppers are around," Brown says in the first of three videos. "The police out there, at the gate. Come on, what the f**k else do y'all want from me, bro? I stay out of the way, take care of my daughter. Do work."
"I'm way too tired to be dealing with this bulls**t," he adds. "Every three months y’all come up with something, bro. What is it? What’s gonna be next? ... I'm innocent, f**k everybody. I'm tired of hearing this s**t."
In a second video, he explains why he hasn't come out of his residence.
"I'm not coming out for my house, for what? I ain't did s**t, I ain't gonna do s**t, and it's always gonna be f**k the police, black lives matter," he says. "I don't care. Y'all gonna stop playing with me like ... I'm going crazy, I'm not. You guys got me f**ked up though."
Brown smokes a cigarette in the third video, and says he doesn't care what people think about him.
"I don't give a f**k, I'm not running for politics. I don't give a f**k about personal opinion," he says. "But what I do care about is y'all defacing my name as a person, and my character and integrity. I am a father. I am one of the best entertainers out here, without bragging and saying, 'Woe is me, I don't get enough credit.'"
This isn't Brown's first brush with the law. The "Forever" singer spent six years on probation after pleading guilty to attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. Since then, he’s had several other run-ins with police, including pleading guilty to hitting a man outside a Washington, D.C., hotel in October 2013.
"You have to forgive yourself," he said. "You can't beat yourself up over the years, because it'll just eat at you and you'll be stuck in the past. And for me, I just learned to be a more humble individual and more of a conscious person."
