Chris Brown Fight

Witness Says CB

Swung First

1/28/2013 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Gee big shocker that Chris Brown is acting like a d!ck bag......2nd at this point in time..Frank Ocean is the bigger/better artist (he's up for Grammys )so HE deserves this parking spot. Chris Brown gets more attention (negative attention) for the idiot things he does or says...acting like a angry fool than for his music. ALSO I laugh out loud when people say Chris Brown should be forgiven...Forgiveness is something EARNED...just because you say you're sorry doesn't mean you're automatically forgiven by all. Chris Brown has done nothing but act like a jerk time and time again...HE'S NOT CHANGED. Actions speak louder than words.

In Chris Brown's mind, sucker punching a gay guy is the next best thing to beating a 95-pound woman to a pulp.

Even with all his money apparently it hasn't bought him a clue. He needs to surround himself with smarter people because he sure doesn't have the brain power to pull it off on his own.
