The incident reportedly happened Sunday night outside Westlake Studio on Santa Monica Boulevard.
“got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there,” Ocean tweeted late Sunday, referencing his dog, Everest. “cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the grammys.”
According to TMZ sources, however, Brown wasn’t the one who started it.
When Brown, who’d been listening to another artist, went to leave the studio, Ocean and his people blocked him in, the website’s sources said. Chris went to shake hands with Frank, only to be attacked by one of Ocean’s guys, and things allegedly went downhill from there, devolving into a brawl involving six people.
Brown and company had left by the time police arrived. Ocean told cops the fight started over a parking space, and that Brown punched him, TMZ said.
“Of course, we are going to investigate,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore told L.A. Now on Monday. “It is our understanding it does not rise to the level of an alleged assault. As a matter of fact, it could be a minor scuffle over a parking spot.”
Brown was named as the suspect in the battery report, and the victim wanted to prosecute, Whitmore said. The two performers have a history of warring with words.
Breezy is still on probation after pleading guilty to assault on his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, the night before the Grammy Awards in 2009. He and Rihanna have gotten friendly once again in recent months.
