Chris Brown is once again in trouble with the law, which has sadly become a pretty normal set of circumstances for the 27-year-old R&B singer. TMZ reports that Brown and a couple of his friends may have trashed a rented villa, leaving the bed soaked in urine with vomit everywhere. And as awful as that sounds, at least there aren’t any allegations of physical assault this time.
Chris Brown rented a villa in Ibiza, one of the Balearic islands in the Mediterranean Sea, last month in June. The landlord apparently stumbled upon the massive and chaotic mess that was left behind by Brown and his crew. The police got involved because the landlord had to find a way to kick Brown out – who was supposed to leave hours before the incident.
The landlord of the Ibiza villa claims that Chris still owes about $26,000 in rent, though a source close to Chris Brown insists that this matter has been resolved. Whether or not it has, with the addition of the damage done to the villa – carved up walls, vomit, and urine – the total could amount to nearly $60,000. Brown has since responded, denying that he or any of his friends trashed the house. The R&B artist took to Instagram and recorded a video of him explaining his side of things.
“This is exactly why I recorded all those videos in the house. It doesn’t make sense. Once again, slandering my name … It’s f***ing petty and it’s unnecessary. It’s unprofessional, one. I don’t conduct myself like that. We turn up, we have fun, we’re not no f***ing animals, bro … Good luck on that money, we ain’t tear that house up.”
In the video, Brown expresses anger at the fact that he isn’t being given the benefit of the doubt and feels his name is being slandered. Keeping everything in context, this is the same man who savagely beat his old girlfriend and fellow R&B artist Rihanna in 2009. Brown continued to exhibit a pattern of outbursts and losing his temper, with other allegations of physical assault having been filed against him.
But Chris Brown also took to Instagram to prove that the landlord is lying. He posted videos he took of the villa, claiming these were filmed just before he and his friends left – revealing no damage, urine or vomit anywhere.
As mentioned earlier, this is not the only hardship the Royalty singer is going through. Brown’s former publicist, Nicole Perna, got into a bit of a text rant with him, resulting in her being called a b****. This started because Perna was not able to secure the cover magazine covers Brown wanted in order to promote his clothing line.
“Anna Wintour doesn’t want to f*** with you. These editors don’t want to f*** with you,” Nicole sent him in a text message. “The majority of my time is spent on damage control. I am constantly cleaning s*** up and having your back.”
Now, given Chris Brown’s history, these statements don’t really feel that farfetched. It’s easy to imagine that Brown’s reps would be doing constant damage control, due to his name popping up in headlines so often – usually claiming he’s done something he shouldn’t have. But Chris wasn’t really interested in hearing any of what Nicole was trying to tell him. He allegedly responded with a lot of anger.
“NICOLE, you texting me as if I will give a f*** if u dont work for me or not. Do whatever makes u feel better. Me personally, I DONT GIVE A F***!!!”
So the bit about having to do damage control doesn’t really seem like it registered with Brown. Nicole sent in her letter of resignation and quit. Nancy Ghosh, Brown’s former tour manager, also quit, claiming she felt unsafe following a disturbing episode of Brown screaming, high on drugs. It’s hard to imagine why Nicole and Nancy would be lying about events such as this. It looks like Chris Brown will have to continue to walk on thin ice.
