Chris Brown attempts to clear up rumors of his gang connections by denying affiliation, but saying that he's "cordial" with gang members.
The past few months have seen Chris Brownthrowing up L.A. Bloods gang signs,Â being barred from Canada, being rumored to be involved in club brawls, andÂ having a performance interrupted by a stabbingÂ -- are these mere coincidences, or do they point to Brown's alleged gang ties? That's what MTV's Sway Calloway wanted to know in a new interview with Breezy, who said i response that he's not affiliated with any gangs, but is "cordial" to members.Â
He further explained this by saying, âWhen youâre in L.A. and youâre around people, you meet everybody â you meet Crips, you meet Bloods, especially in this industry that Iâm in. Iâm not in the country world, Iâm not in the all-the-way pop world. [When] youâre in hip-hop, all of that meshes."
This comes after a TMZ reportÂ that Brown's girlfriend, Karreuche Tran, and his mother asked his therapist to warn the singer about the dangers of running with gangs. An additional TMZ articleÂ reported that the LAPD reached out to club owners after the aforementioned stabbing, and tried to dissuade them from booking Brown.
