A fan of Chris Brown reportedly broke into his home Thursday and vandalized his property, but the rapper who just finished serving six years probation for physically assaulting his ex-girlfriend said he chose to pray for the woman he found naked in his bed after she allegedly trashed the belongings of his daughter and dog.
Brown, the 26-year-old R&B star, returned to his Los Angeles home Thursday where he found the words "I love you" plastered on a wall and the hinges removed from the doors where Amira Ayeb, 21, entered and reportedly left her mark.

An English professor at California State University-Northridge, who was raised by two lesbian mothers, claims that the federal government could be liable for paying "reparations" to thousands of children raised by same-sex parents due to the emotional damage suffered from being deprived of opposite-sex parents.
Professor Robert Oscar Lopez, who is openly bisexual and also married, wrote in an op-ed for the American Thinker that somewhere between 100,000 and 500,000 children could be placed in homes with same-sex parents in the next 15 years as a result of state and federal governments' growing acceptance of same-sex marriage and same-sex parenting.
"Whatever the numbers of kids being raised in gay homes might be right now, with the rise of gay marriage, there was a rise in kids being raised by gay couples," Lopez wrote. "Those responsible for gay marriage will be responsible for thousands upon thousands of individual children who would not have been raised by same-sex couples were it not for actions taken by the government." more >>
