Chris Brown Opens Up About “The Deepest Regret Of My Life”
The people of Guyana may not have been happy to see Chris Brown perform because of the 2009 incident with ex-girlfriend Rihanna but the singer’s camp assures he did not cancel the show out of fear. The Huffington Post reported that Breezy didn’t touch the stage in Guyana because womens’ rights groups were protesting his presence and would not welcome him into the country. His rep says that’s false. “This concert was never confirmed,” Brown’s rep tells E! News. “The promoter is being untruthful.” When it comes to Brown, little is ever a sure thing, like his current relationship with Rihanna, especially after tag teaming on Rih’s Unapologetic track “Nobody’s Business.” But that’s a story for another day.

Word on the e-streets is that Drake and Chris Brown were involved in an altercation. But now there is new information saying that Drake is not responsible for the bloody gash on Brown’s chin. According to TMZ, sources say that the fight started after Brown and a rapper at Drake’s table were trash-talking each other. Last night at WiP, Meek Mill was spotted hanging out with Drake. The source says that Meek and Brown got into a shouting match. It is also reported that a member of Brown’s entourage got involved. The latest reports assert that the argument was not about Rihanna, and that Brown was hurt when Meek hit him with a bottle. A representative for Drake gave an official statement: “Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.i.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began. [Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.” See some photos of the aftermath above.
