Madness: Frank Ocean And Chris Brown Fight At A Recording Studio


Oh helllllll nawwwwwlllll! I. CANNOT. DEAL. Look, I can’t stand when people address celebrities (or other people) as if they can hear them (or like, read their Facebook statuses), but, Chris. Chris, are you listening to me? (whispering) Listen to me, Chris. It’s one thing to fight with Drake, okay? It’s another thing to fight with Rihanna (yeah, I’m going there). But if you EVER, EVEREVEREVEREVEREVER IN YOUR LIIIIIIIIFE hurt my Forrest Gump/Pyramids/Super Rich Kids-crooning boo, Frank Ocean, I will come find you myself. You wanna jump people, Chris? You wanna jump MY boo? Chris. I will find you. And I will peel every single last one of those ridiculous ass tattoos off of your body with my own fingernails. I’ll start with the one on your neck, and I’ll go from there. I’m not gonna get medieval on your ass, Chris. I’ll get Willow on your ass? Did you watch Buffy, Chris? Did you SEE what Willow did to Warren after he killed Tara? Yeah. NO. Like that, but worse. Whew. Okay y’all, I’m back. Click inside to learn more about why Frank Ocean is my innocent lil’ baby and Chris Brown is [still] the worst (although, of course, Chris’s friends maintain that Frank started the fight… whatever).

TMZ has the report:

Chris Brown was involved in an all-out brawl with Frank Ocean Sunday night, and sources connected with Chris insist Ocean started it.

Chris was at Westlake Studio in the L.A. area listening to one of the artists he represents.  The sources say as Chris went to leave, Frank Ocean and his crew blocked Chris from leaving. The sources say Frank said, “This is my studio, this is my parking spot.”

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.

The police were called and are on scene now.

UPDATE 10:45PM 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.

This is absolutely not the first time Frank and Chris have beefed, just the first time it got physical. Here are some old tweets between the two from back in July, 2011:

Frank has already taken to Twitter to address the current situation:

Y’all. I have said my piece already, and I don’t wanna go back to that dark place. I just… can’t. Your thoughts?

    Yikes! I don’t think Chris Brown will ever stop being violent until he’s in prison and another prisoner seriously beats him up.

    • Shannon

      Kelly, prison may or may not do someone like CB good. I just want him AWAY from my boo!

  • Amanda

    LMAOOO. I howled at the opening paragraph. Shannon, you are a fool. A hysterical one, but a fool nonetheless. ILY.

    Not too sure who’s to take the blame here. I can’t STAND Chris Brown and while I do like Frank Ocean’s music, I can’t say I’m proud that he gave in and contributed to this disgraceful mess.

    • Shannon

      Amanda, ‘Shannon, you are a fool’– you sound like my bf from Cleveland! LMAO, thank you :)

      And you’re right, Frank is not entirely innocent here at all (you can even see that in the tweets from 2011).

  • EAW

    Shannon your opening paragraph was hilarious and perfect. Chris Brown is the worst

    • Shannon

      EAW, thanks… had to get it all out somehow :)

  • Samantha

    I’m not saying CB is perfect, but I couldn’t imagine being in a world where everyone was against me, judging me, baiting me, hating me. He seriously needs to just go sit down on an island somewhere and disappear for a bit. Clearly, the “Im going to keep making music until everyone forgets about me” is not working.

    • Krissy

      “I couldn’t imagine being in a world where everyone was against me, judging me, baiting me, hating me.”

      To be fair, that is a world 100% completely of his own making. Much like Ike Turner, he will be baited for the rest of his life for making such an enormous mistake. Considering he didn’t go to prison for nearly killing a woman, I would say the trade is fair. To be forever challenged is the bed that he made.

    • @Krissy — PREACH!!!

    • Shannon

      Krissy, I gotta agree.

      Samantha, there ARE times when I think people attack CB unnecessarily. One example is that Twitter beef he got into with a comedian. Headlines read ‘Chris Brown Verbally ATTACKS A Woman On Twitter.’ I thought that was ridic, especially when she came at him first, seemingly out of nowhere. But ultimately I agree with Krissy because he DID nearly kill a woman, he spent no time in prison for it, and he’s still doing just fine career-wise (although he’s def lost fans and popularity). But he’s fine, and he clearly doesn’t feel like he needs to make any major changes in his life. He still gets into public fights and he still treats women like crap, while proclaiming his love for them. So yeah. I do agree with the idea of him disappearing for a long time.

    • Samantha

      I agree however can you imagine the biggest mistake you have ever made being public and constantly brought up? Luckily for us “normal” people, all of our deepest secrets and shames will stay in the dark. We’ve all done terrible and dumb things and I would never want ‘to be forever challenged”(way harsh BTW) because of that. I just think there is a whole lotta judging going on and NONE are of us are in places to judge..granted most of us haven’t made this mistake…I still think he needs to disappear for a long vacation.

    • Krissy

      What CB did was really, really, really wrong. I don’t think you can ask your average person to put themselves in his shoes because your average person has never nearly killed someone. There is nothing I have done that would compare to beating another human being unconcious and leaving them bleeding at the side of the road. That isn’t to say that he should never be forgiven, but his attempts at redemption haven’t come close to matching his crime. He hasn’t worked with shelters for victims of domestic violence. No anti-violence PSAs. No donations to the cause. He hasn’t repeatedly spoken out against what he did. Instead, he throws chairs through windows on Good Morning America, he gets into fights with Drake, he gets into fights with Frank. IMO, he was coddled by his peers after the incident, and therefore, didn’t learn a lesson. His actions show he learned nothing.

    • Samantha

      Still judging but good point about his lack of redeeming qualities (for now).

    • Jstar

      Maybe CB and Lindsay Lohan can go to the same island until people forget about them….

  • JM

    “I only wish everest was there.” Lawd. I love that man. And his dog.

    CB=ultimate DB. He gots to go.

    • Shannon

      JM, I KNOW right? Frank’s adorable. I know, I know. I baby him, lmao!

  • LJ

    Shannon i loved you before- but that reference was epic, everybody loves a good Buffy reference!!

    • Shannon

      LJ, it felt so good to write that and know my PITNBRS would get it. You GET me! LOL :)

  • Mark

    Dark Willow < Dark Shannon.

    • Shannon

      Mark!!!!! LMAO! Are you kidding me?! I BOW to Dark Willow! But your comment made me really, really happy :)

  • Vicky

    Honestly…. I am surprise that more male rappers haven’t tried to lay the beat down on CB for hitting Rihanna and being a giant douche in general. If that had happened in my high school, the guy who hit the girl would have been jumped by half the guys in the school. Not that violence is the answer, it totally isn’t at all, but that’s how men tend to deal with things.

    • Shannon

      Vicky, ‘I am surprised that more male rappers haven’t tried to lay the beat down on CB for hitting Rihanna,’ hmmm. I never thought of this. The vision alone makes me happy, lmao! No, but seriously. I don’t condone violence of any sort ;)

  • nicole

    Shannon, you’re crazy lol. i love that opening paragraph.

    from everything i’ve read (those old tweets included) they both seem to be at fault here. someone needs to sit these artist down and tell them to grow up & start acting like adults. i mean come on..a parking spot? really? *shakes head*

    • Shannon

      nicole, I feel like the parking spot thing was an excuse to revamp the old beef, ya know? Either way, it’s immature and both really are at fault. But you know I couldn’t admit that right away, lol ;)

  • emily

    I’d like to start a PITNB award show and nominate this post for the category “Best Reaction to That Ish Cray”
    Shannon, you’ve bested yourself here. Impassioned concern is your wheelhouse.

  • Whit

    So we are going to ignore the fact this was over a PARKING SPOT?! what type of entitled assholes argue or even fight over parking. I’m sure there were more spots, Frank.

    Furthermore, I think people will continue to judge Chris on his past. What about Frank’s part in this? Just because he’s taken to twitter doesn’t mean he isn’t responsible in some way.

    The bigger issue is that this is over a freaking PARKING SPOT. UGH.

    • Krissy

      ” I think people will continue to judge Chris on his past”

      It makes sense that people would reflect on Chris’s past in this case. He has a history of violence, this was a violent episode.

    • Whit

      I disagree. His history has nothing to do with this incident. He has one incident– two, incidents. One with Rihanna and one with the chair of the GMA set. this has nothing to do with either of those. The reflection should be on their past together. Those incidents. Further, if Frank provoked him, I see this as nothing more than a bully playing victim.

    • Whit

      More than anything this is a case of men acting like boys and not knowing when and where to chose their battles. Come on they are both nominated for Grammy awards and they are still behaving as if a parking space was the Rivercourt in their neighborhood.

    • @Whit — “His history has nothing to do with this incident”

      Of course it does. He has a history of violence, he has a history of criminal activity and he has a history of poor impulse control. He was ordered by the court to attend anger management courses in lieu of going to jail for his vicious assault of his then girlfriend. His violent and criminal history has everything to do with the way he continues to act out like a dickweed.

    • Krissy

      He also had the bar fight with Drake where many innocent bystanders were injured. It’s hard to keep track of them all, I know.

  • blaqfury

    If this was truly over a parking spot, I just can’t think of a logical way Chris was the aggressor… he was leaving. How can you start a fight when you’re about to leave the parking space? Every scenario I think of, Frank has to be the first person to say something. Cause how would Chris know Frank was upset over a parking space, unless Frank told him so. So the only conclusion I can come it, is that this was not about a parking spot. Maybe I’m missing something.. #shrugs… I gave this way more thought than it deserved… moving on…
