Chris Brown and Frank Ocean were reportedly involved in a fight at a Los Angeles recording studio Sunday, and sources claim that the dispute was allegedly over a parking space.
Brown, 23, was allegedly listening to one of his artists sing at Westlake Studio and the singer was reportedly confronted by Ocean, 25, on his way out, according to TMZ.com.
"This is my studio, this is my parking spot," Ocean allegedly yelled at Brown.
It has been claimed that Brown attempted to shake Ocean's hand, which fans suspect was an attempt to make peace. However, members of Ocean's entourage allegedly reacted by attacking the singer, which prompted a violent brawl. A total of six people were involved in the fight, during which both singers are believed to have had direct contact.
Police were called to the scene, but Brown was not present when they arrived. Ocean reportedly spoke with police and it is understood that authorities are also keen to get Brown's version of events.
"The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim," the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement released Monday.
Ocean is being referred as the "victim" by default simply because he was the only party present upon police arrival.
The "Sweet Life" singer immediately took to social networking site Twitter after the incident claiming that Brown had "jumped" him.
"got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there," Ocean tweeted Jan. 28.
The singer, who has been nominated for several Grammy awards, also implied that the fight could affect his upcoming performance. He is expected to attend the 55th annual Grammy Awards ceremony on Feb. 10.
"cut my finger now I can't play w two hands at the grammys," Ocean later tweeted.
By Monday, both artists were trending on Twitter and fans flocked to the networking site to weigh in on the brawl.
"Chris Brown jumping Frank Ocean kind of makes me hate him more than anything in life... Ahh well... Atleast he's beating men now.. #lowlife??" Elle tweeted.
'Why is Chris Brown always assaulting other artists before the Grammys? First Rihanna, now Frank Ocean smh," Cleoni tweeted.
