CHRIS BROWN ARRESTED FOR ASSAULT

Chris Brown 1Chris Brown has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after an hours-long standoff with the LAPD at his home, Lieutenant Chris Ramirez confirmed in a press conference.

The standoff between Chris Brown and the LAPD continues.

The singer’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, is at his client’s home where police have been outside since 3 a.m. PST, according to TMZ. The site says that Brown’s entourage is starting to file out of the house as police search each person. Breezy walked out of the home at approximately 2:30 p.m., but has not been arrested.

The Los Angeles Times says that police had obtained a warrant and had begun searching the home.

The woman who called the police on Chris Brown for reportedly pulling a gun on her has been identified by TMZ.

The news site says the woman is beauty pageant winner Baylee Curran. She says she was hanging out with Breezy and his crew at his house when someone in his entourage was showing off a piece of jewelry.

She says when she approached to admire the jewelry, the man freaked out and Brown had a similar reaction. That’s when he allegedly pulled out the gun and threatened her to get out of his house. Curran says that Brown was seemingly under the influence of drugs or alcohol as she has spent time with Brown before and he usually was very nice.

When Curran and her friend tried to leave after he allegedly pulled a gun on her, Brown’s crew tried to keep her phone from her and make her sign a non-disclosure agreement. They refused and left, which is when she called the police.

Ray J, who was reportedly at the home at the time of the incident, has responded to the scene on Instagram.

“I’m real upset about today,” Ray J says in the clip. “I’m not happy with how things are handled and how people can take a false story and blow it up into something way more than what it should be. We’ve got just positive people around and you look outside and it’s like a war zone for no reason. For somebody what some stranger said about something that don’t got nothing to do with nothing. To react like that so fast without really knowing the facts and knowing what’s up ain’t cool. Shit’s not right. It shouldn’t be like this. I support the homie Chris and I support the whole movement. I’m here. Again, man, shit gotta change. It can’t be like this every time somebody yipping and yapping trying to get an extra buck. It turns around and it’s all bad on us.”

Chris Brown is in an ongoing confrontation with the police, according to TMZ and the Los Angeles Times.

The latest development from TMZ is that Breezy threw a duffle bag out a window. The bag, which reportedly contained a gun, other weapons and drugs, was reportedly retrieved by police.

The police arrived at the singer’s home at about 3 a.m. PST when a woman called 911 claiming that he threatened her with a gun. A source told TMZ that Brown had been asleep the whole time.

He took to Instagram to say he woke up to police outside his home and shared his side of the story while police waited outside.

“I ain’t did shit. I ain’t gonna do shit. And it’s always gonna be fuck the police. Black lives matter, nigga,” he says in one post. “I don’t care. Y’all gonna stop playing with me like I’m the villain out here. Like I’m going crazy. I’m not. You guys got me fucked up, though. Good luck. When you get the warrant or whatever you need to do, you can walk right up in here and you’re gonna see nothing. You idiots. I’m tired of fucking dealing with you all. Y’all are the worst gang in the world. The police and I said it. Fuck you.”

Breezy didn’t let the officers into the home and demanded a warrant. The police were in the process of obtaining a warrant at the time of publication. The case has now been taken over by the LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Division because of its high-profile nature.

Brown’s friend, singer Ray J was reportedly in the house at the time the police showed up. When he left, he was briefly taken into custody, but allowed to Uber home while his BMW was taken as evidence.

COURT INJUNCTION PLACED ON DAASEBRE GYAMENA’S FUNERAL

Daasebre Gyamena 1There is a looming confusion over the funeral of late Highlife Singer Daasebre Gyamena, as members from his mother and father’s families are fighting over who has the right to bury him.

Members from Daasebre’s mother’s family in Anomabo have placed a court injunction on the funeral arrangement, because his father’s family in Koforidua have refused to release the body to be buried at Anomabo as their tradition demands.

Since his untimely demise at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra on Friday July 29, 2016, there have been disputes between the Muslim community and his father’s family in Koforidua over who has the right to bury his mortal remains.

After both parties(the Muslims community and his father’s family) agreed on a burial date set for October 14, members from Daasebre Gyamena’s mother’s family are demanding that his dead body must be moved from Koforidua to Anomabo where his mother hails from, for him to be buried there instead of Koforidua.

Speaking on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review, Nana Kwaku Appah from Daasebre Gyamena’s mother’s family confirmed that they have asked his father’s family in Koforidua to release the remain to them. “Yes it is true we are demanding the body of our royal son”.

Nana admitted that they sent a delegation to Koforidua to be part of the meeting where the burial date was chosen but according him, their delegation couldn’t articulate their position properly in the meeting.

“We agreed for the one week celebration to be held in Koforidua on condition that his father’s family would allow us to take the body to Anomabo after the one week but they have refused to allow us to take the body from Koforidua and our family tradition demands that if a member of the family dies no matter what or where the person dies, the person must be buried in Anomabo”. 

Nana Kwaku disclosed that they went to Koforidua last Wednesday to transport the body to Anomabo but Daasebre’s father’s family did not allow them. Adding that both families agreed initially that Daasebre would be buried in Anomabo.

“Daasebre is a royal from Anomabo so we would never allow him to be buried anywhere else apart from his mother’s home town. So if they don’t release the body to us, we will take it to court. The court is there to settle misunderstandings and issues like this so we have placed court injunction on the funeral for the court to decide who has the right to bury him and where he should be buried”.

Asked if the junction has been placed already or the family is yet to place it, Nana Kwaku said “We have already placed injunction on it and they have been summoned to court to come and explain. We have finished all arrangement and our Lawyers have served them so we are waiting to meet them at Koforidua High court”. 

He said names on the court summons are Mr. Godfred Oti and Samuel Boakye from Daasebre’s father side and they are expected to appear in court on behalf of the family.

Meanwhile, Mr. Godfred Oti who represents Daasebre’s father family said on Peace FM that as at Saturday August 27, 2016, they hadn’t received any court summons yet.

He however added that he is very disappointed in members of Daasebre’s mothers family for blowing what is supposed to be a family issue out of proportion. According to him Daasebre Gyamena’s mother died when he was just seven months old and the same family who are now fighting for his body abandoned him at that age and have no idea how he survived to become the music star he was before he died but now that he is no more, they are fighting to bury him.

“If they have taken the issue to court, I have nothing to say about it. If the court decides and the court wants the body to be given to his mother’s family we will give the body to them to do whatever they want with it”,Mr. Godfred Oti emphasized.

As it stands now it is not too clear if Daasebre would still be buried on October 14 or not.
