9:40 AM PT -- Police say they are still trying to make contact with Chris.

9:20 AM PT -- Chris is finally awake and posting videos. He's pissed about the police presence at his house and feels he's being harassed. He even dropped a "F*** tha police!"

The cops are still outside.

8:45 AM PT -- We've learned the SWAT team is on its way to Chris' home and the LAPD is in the process of obtaining a search warrant. We're told cops want to see if a gun matching the description from the woman is in the house. As of now, Chris has not left his residence.

7:55 AM PT -- TMZ has learned Chris was in the house with several friends, including Ray J. They were talking and at one point Ray was getting a tattoo when some "uninvited guests" appeared inside the house and were asked to leave.

At that point, the story gets murky. The guests included a man who was invited, and two women who were not -- one of the women who'd been asked to leave is the one who made the police report, claiming Brown pulled the gun on her. Someone inside the house insists Chris was asleep the whole time.

At some point Ray J left the house and when he got to the base of the driveway, police handcuffed him and seized his BMW. They checked his ID, uncuffed him and let him go, but kept his car as evidence. He Ubered home. 

0830-sub-aerial-chris-brown-fox11-02At the time of this post, Chris is still in the house. He never left. Police are knocking on the door, but no one inside is responding.

NFL's Rodney Harrison Colin Kaepernick Is Not Black ... Mixed Race Doesn't Count

Breaking News

0830-rodney-harrison-colin-kaepernick-getty-02Colin Kaepernick is not a TRUE black man ... because he's mixed race ... so says ex-NFL star Rodney Harrison. 

The former Patriots safety went on SportsTalk 790 in Houston -- and not only blasted Kaepernick for his National Anthem protest, but says he doesn't REALLY understand the plight of black Americans because his birth mother is white. 

"I'll tell you this," Harrison said ... "I'm a black man and Colin Kaepernick ... he's NOT BLACK."

"He cannot understand what I face and what other black men and black people face on a every single [day] basis."

Check out the audio ... Harrison essentially says there's a scale that measures blackness ... and Kaep doesn't measure up.

Rudy Giuliani needs to quit playing music critic, and start worrying more about the black families he's destroyed ... according to T.I. ... who's laughing off Giuliani's attack on Beyonce

T.I. was in Bev Hills Monday night when he went off about Giuliani ripping Bey's VMA performance, which addressed police violence against the black community.

The ex-mayor says he's saved way more black lives than any hip-hop artist -- but T.I. has a different point of view on Giuliani's track record. As Tip put it ... "Tomato, tomahto."

Ray J to Kanye West You're a Shameless Hypocrite

8/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829-ray-j-kanye-west-TMZ-01Kanye West is a hypocrite for embracing his wife's sex tape now that it suits his purposes, after blasting Ray J for daring to write a song about the famous video ... at least that's what Ray has been telling his crew.

We're told Ray is livid that Kanye rhapsodized about the sex tape during the VMAs ... even giving him a shout-out. You'll recall after Ray J dropped "I Hit it First," Kanye called him "Brandy's little sister" and threw in "lame" for bad measure.

Ray J can't do anything about his cameo in the "Famous" video, but he's not happy about it ... and it has nothing to do with shame over the sex tape. He just feels Kanye is two-faced for turning his nose up at the tape but then embracing it to make a buck.

We're told Ray is also pissed that Kim trashed him after he released "I Hit it First," but then grinned ear to ear at the VMAs when Kanye referred to the sexual tryst that made her untold millions of bucks.

Dean allegedly got pissed, slapped and punched one of the boys in the back of his head and then started choking him. When the other kid stepped in, Dean allegedly choked him too.

Paris Jackson Reconnects with Mom After Breast Cancer Diagnosis

8/30/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829_debbie-rowe-paris_jackson_gettyDebbie Rowe just found out she must undergo chemo and radiation to fight her breast cancer that was recently diagnosed -- but if there is a silver lining, it's that the illness has brought Paris Jackson back into her life.

We've learned Paris -- who went radio silent on Debbie 2 years ago -- has been spending time with her mom since we broke the story last month she's fighting breast cancer. Paris has been visiting Debbie at her ranch and Debbie has gone to Paris' home, where the 2 have reestablished their bond. They're also texting ... a lot.  

Debbie and Paris became very close after Paris' dad, Michael Jackson, died back in 2009. But a couple years ago Paris cut all ties ... wouldn't even return Debbie's calls.

We're told Debbie starts her chemo next month, and Paris is at the center of her support system.
