Chris Brown Fight

Swung First

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.

still wondering how an outdoor brawl made its way into the studio lobby. i've worked at several high-end studios and you had to get buzzed in by the staff at every single one of them. but one thing was true of every recording studio i have ever been to: there are 24/7 security cameras to prevent theft. no doubt there is some crazy video out there...

Another thing.....Chris Brown's idol is Michael Jackson........like him or not...Michael Jackson was the the worlds best entertainer, the most famous person on the planet..HE DIDN'T ACT LIKE THIS. He was always humble and respectful. Chris Brown and these other music artists (Justin Bieber inc) act like the sun shines out of their ass and everyone should bow down to them. ....meanwhile they're talent is mediocre AT BEST......lets get real...they're nothing special

This story sounds WAY more believable. CB starts a fight then runs away like a little beyotch as soon as he hears the cops are coming.

Wow ...    

Over a parking space, really? Disrespected? Makes you wonder what happens behind closed doors with the women in his life. In addition, I thought the point to making money was to leave the hard life of the streets behind. What a shame.

All the he's gay comments. Ocean never said he was if I remember correctly. He just said he fell in love once but unless he says he's gay that doesn't make him gay. not getting it

Chris should be charged if it really went down like that. I would love to know if the police have sorted it out yet, because it may affect Chris' probation - even if he isn't officially charged.

Chris Brown should be careful. Frank Ocean has admitted to engaging in homosexual behavior, which means he has a higher likelihood of having contracted HIV. Given the unnatural act of anal sex, tissues are more prone to tearing. Stats compiled by the CDC show that there is much greater prevalence of HIV within the homosexual community, which is due to this very reason. It's unnatural and perverted. Careful Chris...you cut your hand on him, you could get it too.
