Chris Brown has had a history of violent behavior, and few can forget Rihanna's face after the singer hit her. And now years later, even if Rihanna has forgiven the Back To Love singer, looks like the world isn't as forgiving as Ri Ri.

And things have only gotten worse for Brown since his last arrest in France earlier this year for alleged rape. The 29-year-old singer has been facing a lot of backlash from other artists who refuse to work with him, given his history of abuse towards women.

But now, Canadian heartthrob Justin Bieber has come forward in support of his friend.

Bieber took to Instagram to support Chris by posting a meme where he has compared Brown to the late Michael Jackson and Tupac Shakur.

The black and white image is titled as 'The Legendary Equation,' and featured pictures of Jackson, Shakur, and Brown all gazing toward the sky in a similar pose.

He captioned the minimalist photo as:

"everyone wants to wait til people die To give them the credit they deserve, I'm calling it now when CB passes away after a long full life, you will miss what you had in front of you the whole time ... trust me watch you will see, the people who have over looked this mans talent because of a mistake he made.. you need to reevaluate! Love you @chrisbrownofficial.'

Well, JB's love for Chris is totally appreciated, but it's still not clear if Bieber meant that Chris' musical style is a mixture of Jackson and Shakur's, or if the Undecided singer's artistry is greater than that of both the late musicians.

If he meant the later, then he may have upset a lot of Jackson and Shakur fans. But these three artists do have one thing in common, and that's their constant run-ins with the law.

It's a matter of public information that Michael has been accused of child molestation, before and after his death. Tupac too had spent time in prison on the charges of sexual assault.

And Brown also has an ongoing lawsuit over the alleged rape in Paris. But nothing fazes Biebs, as he continues to stand firm in support of his friend.
