Like his reputation is that great anyway, it appears Chris Brown may be the victim regarding a recent story reported by both Star and Salon magazines. In the magazines, both stories cited Chris Brown for using homophobic slurs during a pick up game of basketball. Even going as far as to produce pictures of Brown on the court.
Apparently, Brown caught wind of that and was not too happy.
Via The Hollywood Gossip:
A totally fictitious article ran in the current Star magazine accusing our client Chris Brown of doing something that he did not do,” says Brown’s rep.
“He got ticked off when things didn’t go his way during the game, saying, ‘That’s gay!’ and ‘You’re a f—–t a–!’ to the other players,” Star claimed.
Brown’s side of the story? A little different.
“He spent the entire day with dozens of members of the production team filming the video for ‘Body to Body’ at 1870 Sunset Paza in West Hollywood.”
“Star accompanied the fabricated story with a photo of Chris playing basketball in New York,s taken on the day of his F.A.M.E. CD release in March.”
“Chris Brown’s management is considering taking appropriate legal action. We stand behind our client and want to set the record straight. This did not happen.”
Okay, it is nice to know that he isn’t that much of a homophobe but when did Brown start to get this much press? That’s what we’d like to know.
