Chris Brown has denied giving false details to a driver after hitting another vehicle in Los Angeles on May 21.
Officials are allegedly investigating whether the “Fine Brown” violated the terms of his probation last week during the road incident.
The 24-year-old was driving his Range Rover with on-off-now-reportedly-on-again girlfriend and model-cum-designer Karrueche Tran in the passenger seat when the accident occurred.
According to a TMZ report, Los Angeles police are following up a claim by the victim of the car crash that Brown was reluctant to hand over his insurance and driver permit details when asked.
The female driver, who has not been named, was driving a Mercedes-Benz.
TMZ reports that Brown “copped an attitude when the woman pressed him for his [information].”
The site also claimed that, when Brown did eventually exchange details, they were false. If this is proven to be true, Brown could be in serious trouble.
The singer remains bound by the terms of his probation sentence, which he was given in 2009 after assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna.
If Brown is found to have broken his probation, he could face a jail sentence of up to four years.
But in a statement to TMZ, from sources close to the singer, Brown has denied lying about his personal details during the road incident. In addition, TMZ was given a photo of the victim’s car which appears to show no signs of damage.
The sources insist Brown has not been contacted by police, adding: “When his lawyer attempted to contact [the other driver] not long after the accident, she hung up on him.”
Meanwhile, the singer has slammed his management team over their handling of the release of his upcoming single “They Don’t Know,” which features vocals by the late Aaliyah.
The single was supposed to premiere on Monday, May 27 and is a cut from Brown’s forthcoming studio album X, which is slated for release on July 16. The video was shot in L.A. earlier this month.
However, the new single has not yet been released. Brown informed his over 12 million Twitter followers on Monday that the date had been moved, adding the following in a series of seemingly frustrated tweets, some of which have now been deleted.
“My management is so incompetent at times that they don’t communicate. So … Blame these wack n–gas for the release being moved. I’ll keep y[‘]all posted. They got me looking crazy. Video/single will be released soon. Not gonna tell y’all an exact date becuz I keep getting false info.”
