Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend, posted a photo of her bloody lip online, and the conclusion you just jumped to has his fans up in arms.
Tran offered no explanation or context, just the caption "Rough day in Chicago."
Was Chris Brown in Chicago?! No doubt thousands of fans asked that question in jest, or not in jest, or at least thought it briefly to themselves.
We later learned that Tran's "injury" was merely make-up applied as part of a video shoot, in which the model portrayed a "street fighter" type.
But Chris' fans were furious, believing she posted the picture and caption knowing the media would run with the story in exactly this fashion.
Chris assaulted former girlfriend Rihanna in 2009; Karrueche split with Chris this March this year, after it was revealed he'd fathered a child.
With Nia Amey-Guzman. A year ago. While they were together.
Last weekend, Karrueche-Chris drama was off the hook for different reasons as the R&B star got into a major beef with Tyson Beckford.
The 44-year-old model shared a seemingly nice selfie of himself with Tran, writing: "Saturday with @Karrueche #vegas #palms #blasian."
The following day, Chris tweeted: "Be in Vegas soon. Keep playing imma f--k ya baby momma and then whoop yo child like he mine."
Brown also took this shot at Tyson: "U wanna keep walking them runways. I need ta legs for that. Keep playing like I ain't wit the bulls--t."
Then a few hours later, in an apparent response, Tyson, 44, shared a video on his Instagram account of himself shooting an AR15.
The caption? "Just in case you forgot!" Then, goading Chris, he added: "@officialchrisbrown it's all about fun in vegas. Come thru papa."
The threats continued until Brown uncharacteristically called it off, writing "No drama! People are really starting to make this s--t an issue."
"I can be a real one and say that I was wrong for even pressing an issue," the 26-year-old Grammy winner added. "I can be a man about it."
There's a first time for everything.
