Chris Brown reportedly reached out to Justin Bieber in the wake of Tuesday's raid, which saw Los Angeles police descending upon the pop star's home.
Bieber, 19, was reportedly left stunned after Los Angeles County Sheriff's raided his Calabasas home in relation to a Jan. 9 egg-throwing incident. Police were executing a search warrant relating the incident which saw Bieber's neighbor accusing the singer of felony vandalism, according to TMZ.com.
Brown, who has had his fair share of run-ins with the law, is said to have offered Bieber words of encouragement as he reportedly believes the raid is part of a "witch hunt" targeting the singer, sources claim.
While Bieber has not been charged over the egg-throwing incident, his best friend Lil Za was arrested during Tuesday's raid for felony drug possession.
"Chris feels for Justin and wants him to be all right because he knows first-hand how situations like these end up and usually they're not good," a source told HollywoodLife.com.
"Justin is like his little brother and he wants him to be all right and stay strong through all this trouble," the source continued. "It just goes to show you, fame ain't all it's cracked up to be. It really isn't."
During the raid police reportedly seized several items, including Bieber's high-tech home security system, which could be used as evidence in the egg-throwing case. Bieber's neighbor, who captured some of the incident on video, claims the singer caused approximately $20,000 in damage to his home.
Under California law vandalism that causes more than $400 in damages automatically results in a felony charge.
The egg-throwing case will reportedly be referred to the L.A. County D.A. who will then determine whether or not to proceed with charges against Bieber. If convicted he could face jail time, but at this time no charges have been filed.
"He has not been arrested or exonerated," Detective Dave Thompson said in a press conference according to Yahoo. "We hope maybe understanding the gravity of this will change some of the behavior."
