Chris Brown Fight

Chris Brown threw the first punch in his brawl with Frank Ocean ... after Frank disrespected the singer in front of his boys ... an eyewitness tells TMZ. 

According to someone who was on scene, Chris lost his cool in the parking lot of the famous Westlake Recording Studios in L.A. Sunday when Frank refused to shake his hand.

We're told Frank simply laughed at the gesture ... and Chris was so pissed he coldcocked Ocean and started an all-out war.  As we first reported, Chris denies being the aggressor. 

The fight quickly moved to the lobby of the studio ... and sources say the brawling posses demolished the place --"They managed to break almost everything in the room and scare all of the staff members working" says the witness.

We're told the receptionist called 911 ... and Chris booked it. As TMZ first reported, Frank stuck around for the cops ... and griped about how he felt "blindsided" by Chris.

One last thing -- we're told the parking situation at the recording studio is a serious hierarchy -- with the bigger artists taking the better spots ... and it's been that way for years. We're told Chris clearly felt he deserved the top spot ... and Frank disrespected him by taking it for himself.

So is he still on probation? Will he finally be held accountable for his anger issues?

I thought Chris was ALREADY in the parking space and was LEAVING, but Frank Ocean blocked him in? How could Frank Ocean take the space Chris was already in? And the fight went from outside to inside? come on, makes NO sense!

It doesn't matter what happened. Because Chris legged it and Frank actually stayed there, like an adult. He'll now have the upper hand.

Of course Chris gets blamed once again! Frank started the whole situation with Chris! But Chris will always be the bad guy to the media! I feel bad that he goes thru this constant hate everyday

Could you imagine the demon child if Brown and Lindsey Lohan reproduced together? I shudder at the thought.

Who is surprised Chris threw the first punch? Chris cannot control his temper and uses violence to handle his problems. He got violent because he felt disrespected. He must think he's the Godfather or something. What do you hink he does when one of his gf's disrespects him? The same thing!
