FAN ACCUSES CHRIS BROWN OF PHONE THEFT

A 24 year-old lady, Christal Spann has accused Chris Brown of snatching her $500 iPhone when she tried to take his pictures outside a nightclub in Miami and driving off with it. According to the Florida woman, Chris had followed Tyga (a rapper) out of Cameo nightclub and as she snapped a picture of Chris getting into his Bentley, Chris flipped out when he saw her camera phone, grabbed it through the car window, saying, “Bitch, you ain’t going to put that on no website.” The R n B Grammy award winner at first kept mum over the matter but he’s told friends he’s done nothing wrong and hopes he’s sorted out soon. Though an arrest warrant has not been issued sources say that even if he is arrested, it is extremely unlikely that his probation for assaulting Rihanna back in 2009 would be revoked. The case is still under investigation. I understand some celebrities get cranky when they see camera flicks but fans would never let them be. I want to be careful here cos investigation is still on so won’t say nothing much. But if he really did….hmmmm! And if the girl lied….hmmm! He’s still on probation for beating Rihanna and this??? Oh my! Why Chris Brown? Source: TMZ, Gossip on...
