Brown’s managers did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News’ request for comment. However, the singer posted multiple videos on social media denying that he had barricaded himself inside his house and that he had committed any crime.”I ain’t do shit, I ain’t gonna do shit . And it is always going to be ‘Fuck the Police,’ Black Lives Matter….And you gotta stop fucking with me like I am the villain going crazy. I’m not. You guys got me fucked up though, so good luck,” Brown said to the camera. “When you get the warrant or whatever you need to do, you are going to walk right up in here and you are going to see nothing, you idiots. I’m tired of fucking dealing with you all. You all the worst gang in the world – the police and I said it. Fuck you!”
It is just the latest run in with the law for Brown. In 2009, the singer was sentenced to five years of probation, one year of domestic violence counseling, and six months of community service for physically assaulting his former girlfriend Rihanna, who was hospitalized with injuries to her face.The singer officially completed his probation in March 2015.However in June, Brown’s former manager, Michael Guirguis, filed a civil lawsuit claiming that the singer punched him repeatedly in May. That case, in which Guirguis is seeking financial punitive damages, remains ongoing.Chris Brown Banned From Australia Over Domestic Violence History
