Chris Brown Slams Reports of Anger and Drug Issues: ‘I’m Not Hurting Out Here’ [VIDEO]
A day after an investigative report by Billboard on Thursday (Mar. 2), which detailed Chris Brown’s battle with drug addiction and anger issues, the embattled singer has slammed the report and denies he has a problem.
Breezy went on Instagram Stories (aka Instagram Live) to address the report and assure fans that he’s doing okay. In the video above, you can see he’s clearly frustrated by the nagging rumors that continue to dog him throughout his career.
“I’m tired of reading about some s--- soon as I’ve got something popping,” he said. “Soon as I want to promote a tour, a party, a f---ing album, anything, y’all bring up something.”
In a second video, the singer said that people should stop worrying about who he’s currently dating. “I be seeing whoever I want to be seen with, just like you can be. People can be whoever they want to be,” he said, adding, “I’m not hurting out here, trust me. Y’all n----s got it f---ed up.”
Billboard's investigative report details Brown's alleged downward spiral into drugs and anger management issues. The publication talked with insiders and those who worked closely with the singer who have seen him at his worst moments.
According to the report, Brown, who reportedly has a bipolar II condition, has been allegedly medicating himself with lean and spends his days scrolling through ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran's Instagram page looking to see who is commenting and liking her pictures.
Ironically, Baller Alert caught Tran liking Brown's video on the gossip websites IG account and then later stating that it was a mistake. You can see the evidence below.
Brown reportedly also has anger issues as well. He allegedly assaulted his former manager, Michael “Mike G” Guirguis, who is currently suing him and claims that the singer is suffering from “addiction, anger control and violence issues.”
Hopefully, Chris Brown can prove the naysayers wrong when he launches his "Party Tour" when he launches on March 31 in Baltimore.
