Grammy-winning singer Chris Brown is under investigation for an alleged assault in a West Hollywood parking lot, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said early Monday.
Deputies responding to a report of six men fighting Sunday night found the scene clear, but were told by witnesses that there had been a brief fight over a parking space.
“The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim,” the department said in a statement released early Monday morning.
The “victim” wasn’t identified but the celebrity website TMZ – which first reported the fight outside the Westlake Recording Studio – said it also involved Frank Ocean, one of the top nominees at Grammy Awards next month.
In a Twitter posting later, Ocean said he “got jumped by (Brown) and a couple guys” and suffered a finger cut.
