Chris Brown, who performed live on the Today show this morning in New York City’s Rockefeller Center, refutes recent claims that he made gay slurs during a pickup basketball game. Star Magazine alleges that Brown “got really ticked off when things didn’t go his way during the game, saying, ‘That’s gay!’ and ‘You’re a f—–t a–!’ to the other players.”
Brown’s reps told E! that the singer wasn’t even playing basketball that day. He was filming a music video for “Body To Body” at West Hollywood’s Sunset Plaza. What’s more, according to his rep, that photo in the story was taken in New York back in March when his F.A.M.E album was released.
“Chris Brown’s management is considering taking appropriate legal action against the paper. Unfortunately this bogus account is being picked up by additional media outlets. We stand behind our client and want to set the record straight that this did not happen,” his rep added.
