Chris Brown Verbal Altercation Backstage Lovers & Friends Festival

With a newly surfaced video from the Lovers & Friends Festival, the story around Chris Brown keeps getting juicier. Moreover, someone filmed the R&B singer almost getting into a fight with an unknown party, exchanging harsh words with a wall of security between them. It's unclear what prompted the verbal altercation, or if it devolved into anything physical. What we do see is a gaggle of people around him and security trying to diffuse the situation, and not much is intelligible. Given rampant rumors that he and his crew jumped Usher at Brown's birthday party, many believe that something went down relating to that.

To theorize, perhaps Chris Brown was getting heated over people accusing him of attacking Usher just a day before the festival. After all, they both performed at the event with back-to-back sets with no issues, and with no word on the allegations. However, this new clip certainly fails to paint the "Psychic" singer in a positive light considering his history and the current headlines. Whatever happened backstage at Lovers & Friends, fans are still waiting for someone to set this story straight. In the meantime, it'll continue to spread in the media and there might be no turning back.

Chris Brown Filmed Getting Into Heated Backstage Argument

On that note, the most prevalent theory surrounding the alleged attack on the Confessions superstar involves Teyana Taylor. According to reports from apparently close sources, Chris Brown actually had a bone to pick with her at his birthday celebration. The story goes that Teyana skipped on his Michael Jackson tribute performance at the AMAs. Reportedly, the Virginia native asked Taylor to leave, and apparently was mad at her for opting out because he believes that's one of the factors that led to the performance's cancellation. When things between the two got verbally heated, that's when Usher allegedly stepped in to mediate.

No matter whose side you stand on, this is a rollercoaster of new information as we wait for gossip confirmation. Sure, some videos emerged of the alleged incident in addition to this new backstage pop-off. Regardless, fans feel nowhere near close to the truth, so we'll see if a potential explanation from Usher or Chris Brown changes things.
