According to The Guardian, police officers were called to a private residence in Los Angeles’s San Fernando Valley area on Friday 18 June. A police spokesperson told NBC News that R&B singer and rapper Chris Brown has been accused of hitting an unnamed woman during an argument.

Brown, who rose from a local church choir to sudden fame in 2005, has since released nine US top 10 albums. His most recent album, titled Indigo, topped the charts in 2019.

His first single, Run It!, reached number one on the US chart. It appeared on his self-titled 2005 debut album which earned him his first Grammy nominations.

Another case of alleged battery against Chris Brown

The American singer is being investigated by Los Angeles Police as a result of the alleged claim of battery by an LA woman. Brown has not been charged with an offence and has also not commented on the allegations. Police said the case would be referred to Los Angeles city attorney’s office.


This is certainly not the first time Brown has had run-ins with the law. He has been charged with battery on several occasions and has previously been accused of assaulting women.

Brown pleaded guilty in the best known of his many legal run-ins — beating his then girlfriend Rihanna ahead of the 2009 Grammy Awards.

According to AFP, Rihanna was forced to miss the music industry’s gala as an aghast public saw pictures of one of the world’s most famous singers with severe bruises on her face and her blood in Brown’s car.

Shocking fans even more, Rihanna reconciled, albeit temporarily, with Brown who was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community service.


In another incident, Brown failed to comply with a probation order, and in 2014 was sentenced to a year in prison. In 2016, a woman alleged that he threatened her with a gun. That same year another woman alleged he had punched her in a Las Vegas nightclub. However, Brown denied both incidents.

In 2017 Brown’s former girlfriend Karrueche Tran alleged that he had made violent threats against her. This resulted in her obtaining a five-year restraining order against the singer.
