Following Chris Brown’s altercation with fellow artist Frank Ocean, Brown drew a Jesus crucifixion painting and posted it online.
“Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!" Brown wrote.
The New York Post reported that Ocean said he's “desirous of prosecution” after Brown allegedly threw the first punch in an altercation.
If Ocean follows through with pressing charges, Brown could be in a lot of trouble. He is on probation until 2014 for his 2009 domestic assault against Rihanna.
While Brown and Ocean were at Westlake Studio in Los Angeles, TMZ reported that both artists got into an altercation over a parking space. As Brown and his entourage were trying to leave Westlake, they were “blocked” by Ocean and his group.
“This is my studio, this is my parking spot,” the “Novacane” the singer allegedly said, before Brown tried to shake Ocean’s hand. After that, there are mixed reports as to whether friends of Brown or Ocean hit each other and started fighting.
The police were called around 10:45 p.m., but Brown was no longer at the scene. Ocean was, and no one pressed charges. Six people were involved in the altercation, reports said.
After the incident, Ocean, who is set to perform at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 10, tweeted, “got jumped by chris and a couple guys. Lol…cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the grammys [sic].”
Ocean and Brown have previously talked negatively about one another on Twitter.
In June, Brown tweeted, “I [expletive] wit Frank Ocean! Reminds me of a young James Fauntleroy or Kevin Cossum.” Apparently, Ocean saw the comment as snide statement and replied, “I just don’t like underhanded comments. That’s all I’m saying … I [expletive] wit chris brown, reminds me of a young sisqo or ike turner [sic].”
Sisqo is an artist well known for wearing loud hair colors, so Ocean was referring to Brown dyinng his hair blond, and the Turner comment was in reference to Brown assaulting Rihanna, as Ike Turner is an artist most known for his terrible abuse against Tina Turner in the '80s.
After the altercation with Ocean, Brown make no comment about it. Instead, he posted a picture to his Instagram account, which showed him in the studio with signers including Mario and the photo caption, “Working on my album. Not working on negativity. Focus on feeding ya famly. [Expletive] will forever be in the shadows.”
The photo was evidently taken before the fight, as Brown was not on the scene when the police arrived at the studio.
