Chris Brown, the Grammy-winning musician, is suspected of punching a woman during an argument at a Los Angeles residence on Friday, TMZ reported on Tuesday.
Officers responded to a report of an argument at a property in the 19600 block of Citrus Ridge Drive in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Los Angeles, according to the report, citing an LAPD spokesperson.
According to the spokesperson, the incident is being investigated as a battery and will be reported to the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office.
Although only a few facts have been disclosed, the victim woman reportedly claimed Brown slapped her in the head hard enough to cause her hair weave to fall out.
There were no injuries recorded, and it is unclear whether Brown will face prosecution.
Twitter users immediately reacted to the news, recalling the singer's past scandals involving a series of assaults and abuse.
And frankly, most of them were not surprised by the new accusations. Some even wondered how the string of scandals the singer has faced has not yet managed to ruin Brown's career.

The fact that we let Chris Brown have a career after what he did to Rihanna... And people are surprised about him still hitting women to this day... I'm just so tired. pic.twitter.com/YMFwvhYkaj— ✨Sailor Super Flower Blood Moon✨ (@kidzbopkpop) June 22, 2021
However, there were voices that, while not in support of Brown's character, nonetheless urged fellow Twitterians to wait for official information and details of the incident and avoid jumping to conclusions.

Common sense says if he has a history of abusing women, then why do the women keep going after him.— Terell Blevins (@TAceBlevins) June 22, 2021
So I guess they shouldn't be held accountable for trying to be with a chronic abuser.
Waiting for tangible evidence. He was accused and arrested before (after Rhi incident), and text messages from the alleged victim proved it was most likely a set up. He's made himself vulnerable because HE IS a documented abuser,but he's still owed due process— Ding, Dong! The witch is dead (@ccguyton) June 22, 2021
Back in 2017, Brown's ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, a model and actress, was given a five-year restraining order against him. The next year, the singer was charged with presiding over a drug-fueled orgy at his Los Angeles residence, when two of his cronies sexually attacked a woman.
Brown was released in 2019 after being jailed in Paris on charges of aggravated rape and drug offenses.
