Chris Brown may be in trouble with the law yet again, after being accused of attacking a woman who was with him at a club Saturday night. Deanna Gines, 24, was in the VIP section with Brown at Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim, Calif., after he had a performance when the incident occurred.
She told TMZ that, as the club closed, the 24-year-old artist shoved her purposefully onto the floor, causing her to fall hard on her knees. She filed a police report and is now on crutches. She claimed she may even need surgery after the incident after doctors told her she has torn ligaments in her right knee."
If the allegations are true, this of course would not be the first time Brown has put his hands on a woman. He and Rihanna were in a relationship for two years before he attacked her on the eve of the Grammy Awards back in 2009, giving her a black eye and a swollen lip. After the attack, numerous celebrities showed their support for Rihanna, and acclaimed talk show host Oprah even dedicated an entire episode of her show toward discussing the impact of domestic violence. The singer did not make an appearance for the episode.
"Give it some time ... heal yourself first ... love doesn't hurt, and if a man hits you once he will hit you again. I don't care what his plea is," Oprah said on her show as a message for other women who may be in abusive relationships.
As for Gines, Brown's rep, Nicole Perna, told TMZ, "I'm unaware of the incident, as is Chris' lawyer and his entire team. He was in a great mood after Powerhouse. None of this makes sense."
