Chris Brown Accused of Assault During NYE In Vegas, Addresses Allegations

Just when Chris Brown focuses on his music and seems to be drama-free, trouble seems to follow…

Brown was in Vegas over the New Year for a celebration performance, and became a suspect in an ongoing investigation by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for assault. The accuser, Liziane Gutierrez, claims Brown took her cellphone and hit her after she tried to take a photograph with him outside the Palms Casino Resort Saturday morning.

According to a press release from the Las Vegas police, Gutierrez “appeared to have minor injuries sustained as a result of a battery,” the release says.

Brown uploaded (then quickly deleted) a video where he addressed the situation, saying Gutierrez is simply looking for a check, and TMZ captured Breezy’s video (below). “Keeping my circle small in 2016! I’m done taking the care of grown … men. And I’m going to be hella rich after all the lawsuits I file from these crazy individuals who keep lying on my name. Happy NEW YEAR! Time for some of us to grow … up!” Brown captioned.

But Gutierrez sent her own video directly to TMZ (side eye), explaining her side of the story (below).

Brown’s publicist, Nicole Perna, released a statement Saturday night calling the woman’s charges “unequivocally untrue.” Perna continues, that Gutierrez “was escorted out of the private after party at the Palms Casino Resort for being disruptive and out of control. Once she was in the hallway, while waiting for Chris Brown’s security to bring out her phone, she had a total meltdown – throwing her purse to the ground and claiming that she ‘could buy everyone in the hotel’ – as witnessed by numerous people waiting to get into the party. The Palms Casino Resort security also saw her wild behavior via hotel security cameras and immediately came up to the hallway to escort her out of the hotel.”

I’d have to agree with Breezy; looks like Gutierrez is trying to make make a come up at the expense of Brown’s past.
