There's so much back-and-forth in this controversial case.
In fact, some think the cops might be flat-out lying

50 Cent actually did some good.
On Friday, a man named Chris Brown (no, not the famous one) revealed that the Candy Shop rapper agreed to come meet his disabled brother after tracking him down at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. Apparently, Brown was at the hotel for his wedding and asked Fiddy if he'd be willing to meet his brother Justin, who suffers from reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome, as a sort of wedding gift.
As you may know, Justin's condition causes chronic pain which results in him being confined to a bed. According to Chris, when he informed the the A-lister that Justin was a huge fan and hoped that he would meet his sibling in his hotel room, the entrepreneur said
Ever since Chris Brown broke out on the music scene when he was just a teenager, people knew there was something special about the now 26-year-old.
Brown has rightfully faced a ton of criticism since the incident and probably lost quite a few fans as a result, but now the singer is getting to tell his side of the story.
In a trailer for C. Breezy's new documentary Welcome to My Life, the Don't Wake Me Up singer opens up about his feelings following his legal troubles and how he "felt like a f*cking monster." Brown even admitted:
"I was thinking about suicide and everything else. I wasn't sleeping, I wasn't eating. I just was getting high."

The Billboard Music Awards are right around the corner!

The courthouse is about to become Chris Brown's second home!
According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, the rapper is currently in hot water for allegedly stealing a popular graffiti artist's brand. The artist in question, Andre Khazrei, claims that Breezy totally ripped off his signature graffiti name of "Konfused". Mr. Khazrei has held the nickname since 2003, way before Brown even came onto scene.
For those who don't know, C.B. has recently taken up tagging around El Lay under the persona of "Konfused". Naturally, it's quite easy to note the similarity between Andre and Chris' alter egos.
In Khazrei's decision to sue, he argues the singer is confusing the marketplace by taking on such a similar moniker, and is now suing for damages and is also requesting the poppa cease use of his trademark immediately.
The case is particularly interesting because it closely mirrors a recent lawsuit filed by Beyoncé against an Etsy shop for allegedly stealing aspects of her brand to turn a profit. Similarly to Andre, Bey argues her rival is "confusing the marketplace".
Yikes! How tricky.
