Update: In an interview with The New York Post, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office said Ocean wants to press charges against Brown. Brown is already on survived probation for felony assault for an attack on Rihanna in 2009.
The altercation took place at Westlake Studio. TMZ’s sources, siding with Brown, claim that Ocean and his entourage arrived at the studio, blocking the exit for Brown and saying, “This is my studio. This is my parking spot.” Brown and his crew allegedly tried to make peace with Ocean but were rebuffed and attacked by Ocean’s camp, resulting in a group fight.
Police were called, though Brown reportedly left the scene before officers arrived. According to TMZ, neither side wants to press charges and no arrests have yet been made.
Ocean tweeted about the event soon after, claiming that it was Brown who started the fight. “Got jumped by Chris and a couple guys. lol. I only wish everest was there,” Ocean wrote. He quickly added, “cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the Grammys.”
