Chris Brown is under investigation for allegedly ‘striking’ a woman in his Los Angeles home.
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) were called to Brown’s home last Friday, June 18, after a woman reported that she was struck in the face by a man, reported to be Brown, following an altercation.
The LAPD media department later confirmed on Tuesday, June 22 that the hip-hop singer is being looked into in relation to the incident.
According to TMZ, the woman claimed Brown slapped her on the back of her head so hard that some of her hair extensions came off.
LAPD spokeswoman officer Lizeth Lomeli told Us in a statement that “the female victim advised she and the suspect argued and the suspect struck her. A crime report for battery was completed.”
Lomeli said the incident is being investigated and will be referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
According to the police report that followed, the suspect was “not at the location” when officers arrived.
The 32-year-old has a history of domestic violence. In 2009 he was charged with felony assault after physically assaulting his girlfriend at the time, singer Rhianna, leaving her with facial injuries requiring hospitalisation.
He pled guilty to the charges and served five years probation as well as attending domestic violence counselling and community service.
In 2017, his ex-girlfriend, model Karrueche Tran, was granted a restraining order against Brown claiming violent threats from the singer.
