Chris Brown and Frank Ocean in brawl
Singers Chris Brown and Frank Ocean have allegedly been involved in a fight.
Sources close to the Beautiful People hitmaker claim Ocean started the dispute by refusing to let the 23-year-old singer leave Westlake Recording Studios in Los Angeles, where he was listening to one of the artists he represents, TMZ has reported.
Insiders told the gossip website that Ocean said: "This is my studio, this is my parking spot."
Brown - who is still on probation for viciously assaulting on/off girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 - is said to have attempted to shake Frank's hand, but sources close to the singers claim one of Ocean’s associates attacked Brown.
One of Brown’s friends is then said to have hit Ocean’s friend in retaliation before Brown then pushed Ocean away as he approached him and the pair started fighting.
The 25-year-old singer/songwriter has taken to his Twitter account to claim he was "jumped by Brown" and has suffered a hand injury which could hamper his performance at the Grammy Awards next month.
He wrote on Twitter: "got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there.
"cut my finger now I can't play w two hands at the grammys. (sic)"
Police arrived at the scene and spoke to Ocean, but Brown was not there. The officers have now cleared the scene without making any arrests and it is thought nobody wants to press charges.
In July 2012, Brown denied being homophobic about Ocean - who came out as gay in a blog post last year - when asked his opinion about the Pyramids hitmaker.
