Earlier today, it was reported that Chris Brown allegedly attacked Usher outside a roller rink in Las Vegas. The pair were in the Nevada hotspot to celebrate Chris Brown's 34th birthday. Aside from Usher, many of famous faces were in attendance at the event. However, things reportedly got nasty about Chris Brown allegedly disrespected Teyana Taylor.
According to the initial reports, Usher tried to defuse the situation inside the rink before Brown called him a "coward" and left the venue. When Usher followed Brown outside to continue the conversation, Brown and his entourage assaulted him. Usher was reportedly left with a bloody nose. The alleged beatdown reportedly took place behind a row of parked charter buses. However, many people were skeptical about the incident, especially given the lack of video footage. You'd expect a celebrity beatdown in a Vegas parking lot to be recorded by someone.
TMZ Shows Argument But Not Fight
Footage obtained by TMZ has shed some light on the situation. The 24-second video published by the outlet shows Brown and Usher exchanging words inside the rink before Usher skates away. Furthermore, sources told TMZ that the disrespect that lead to the argument was that Taylor was reportedly ignoring Brown as he tried to talk to her and he began yelling at her. After Usher intervened, Brown directed his anger at his friend instead. However, no footage of the fight itself has been available. Furthermore, TMZ reports that LVPD did not receive any calls resembling the details of the fight.
Usher and Brown are both set to perform later today at Usher's Lovers & Friends Festival. There has been no update about the festival, with the latest post on social media simply announcing that the festival gates are open. Brown is meant to take the stage at 6:15pm MDT, with Usher set to follow him at 7:55pm. There is approximately 55 minutes between the end of Brown's act and the start of Usher's. This means there is plenty of time to clear the Friends Stage of any potential beef if needs be. Be sure to follow any updates on this developing story here at HotNewHipHop.
