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.

Jeez what an idiot. Disrespect over a parking space is worth fighting over? Pull your head out of your a$$ CB. If you don't actually learn some real anger management, then you are either going to end up in jail, dead, or worse, you may end up seriously hurting or killing someone else, probably over something stupid, like a parking space.

SISSYCHRISSY. Seriously. I don't care how much money he makes, he's a 12 yr old who thinks it is glorious to be a thug, and that is just pathetic.

The fact that Chris Brown thinks he deserves respect from ANYONE is insanely laughable to me! About the only thing I'd ever grace that dude with is perhaps using his ugly face to take a dump on...

So he should be charged with assault and with luck, go to prison.

Don't know how cb can knock anybody down these days. He's so skinny these days! Is he on crack or something? His face is so boney it makes his eyes bulge out like a crackhead. Something is going on with him for sure.......he looks a mess.......

Oh please frank ocean probably started it knowing that him and c brown got into before he came out and he know the white media will likely take his side since he's queer and the ***s have agenda. Most gays are the most hypocritical,bullies themselves.

I hope that somebody kicks Chris Brown's azz good someday. He's overdue. I have zero respect for a guy that would beat up a girl like he did Rihanna.

Who the fark does Chris Brown think he is? He's just a self centered, totally narcissistic prick who thinks that everyone should kiss his @ss wherever he goes.

People should "diss" Chris Brown every chance they get and dare him to do something about it ... by himself without his huge bodyguards around.

Chris Brown is going to screw with the wrong dude someday and he's going to wind up in the hospital in bad shape ... much worse than Rihanna's injuries. People get shot for these stupid "disrespect" ego things all the time with drug dealing gangbanger type people.
