(Chris Brown performs at the 2012 Grammy Awards)
By Jocelyn Vena
Chris Brown has continued to make headlines since his recent performance at the Grammys Awards and his win for Best R&B Album with F.A.M.E.. This week he lashed out at critics who alleged that he didn’t deserve a chance to return to the awards show, and now Brown is defending rumors that he used a tasteless pickup line on a woman at a Grammy suite during the festivities.
Sources tell UsMagazine.com that Brown approached a woman at the Lasio Professional Hair Care suite Grammy gift lounge on February 10 and told her, “Can I get your number? I promise I won’t beat you!”
The woman he reportedly used the line on added, “He and his friends laughed, then one yelled, ‘That’s his new line!’ Ugh! I wanted to throw up!”
Who Will Be Featured On Rihanna’s ‘Birthday Cake (Remix)?’
Both he and his rep denied the woman’s allegation.”That is absurd and absolutely not true,” Brown said in a statement to TMZ. “I did not say that nor would I joke about that.”
Amid speculation that he will appear on Rihanna’s reworked “Birthday Cake” track, rumors about Brown’s personal life continue to swirl. He reportedly was at her birthday party in L.A. earlier this week. TMZ reports that Brown “refused” to enter the party at the Hearst Mansion in Beverly Hills unless partygoers signed confidentiality agreements handed out by his entourage. While some did, others refused.
Despite denying they are romantically involved again, Brown and Rihanna were “nuzzling” and “holding hands,” according to TMZ sources. The Monday night party was also attended by Ri’s pals like Chris Martin, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars.
The news comes just days after he took to Twitter to blast the critics of his Grammy win and performances. “Strange how we pick and choose who to hate!” Brown reportedly wrote on the now-deleted spree. “Let me ask u this. Our society is full of rappers (which I listen to) who have sold drugs (poisoning). But yet we glorify them and imitate everything they do. Then right before the worlds eyes a man shows how he can make a Big mistake and learn from it, but still has to deal with day to day hatred! You guys love to hate!!! But guess what???”
That “big mistake” he is referring to is the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
