It's possible this story is completely bogus, given that it stems from unnamed sources quoted by Star and Radar. But given Chris Brown's proclivity for using such language, getting the benefit of the doubt may be a tall order.
According to this report, he shouted anti-gay slurs during a recent pickup basketball game, "stunning and repulsing" onlookers on June 29.
The much-maligned R&B singer turned up at a 24 Hour Fitness center in L.A. and joined a casual pickup game. Things got ugly quickly.
Chris Brown ballin' earlier this year.
So what exactly happened? An eyewitness tells Star the following:
“He got really ticked off when things didn’t go his way during the game, saying, ‘That’s gay!’ and ‘You’re a f*gg*t a**!’ to other players.”
Chris even got in one guy's face, berating him for missing a shot. That's pretty standard, but his supposed word choice raised eyebrows.
No blows were exchanged, but the mood was testy.
“There was no physical contact, but he was verbally aggressive,” says a source claiming to have seen it. “His demeanor was over the top.”
Even his burly bodyguards got in on the intimidation at the basketball game, threatening to kick out anyone who tried to snap pictures.
Brown has yet to comment on the report.
