Police surround home of US Singer Chris Brown

Singer Chris Brown has found himself at the centre of a fresh scandal, with police called to his southern California home amid reports he’d pulled a gun on a woman inside.

Police helicopters flew overhead, while officers surrounded the property below.

TMZ.com said the woman had been a guest at the house when she claims he pulled a gun on her, she has since left the house.


But Brown took to Instagram to advise fans that that he had woken up to find police outside.  He added that they needed a warrant to enter the property in Tarzana, about 38 km outside Los Angeles.

“I don’t sleep half the damn night I just wake up to all these … helicopters, choppers is around, police out there at the gate,” Brown said on an Instagram video.

“”What I do care about is you are defacing my name and my character and integrity,” he added, saying he had done nothing wrong and criticising police actions.

“I don’t care y’all going to stay playing with me like I’m the villain out here, like I’m going crazy … good luck when you get the warrant or whatever you need to do. You’re going to walk right up in here and you’re going to see nothing you idiots,” he added.

TMZ now says police have retrieved at least one gun, other weapons and drugs from Brown’s home, after he threw a duffel bag out the window of his home.

Brown assaulted ex girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and in 2015.
