Chris Brown stole woman's cell phone? Police are investigating
Chris Brown has been accused of snatching a woman's iPhone outside of a Miami club, while police say they are investigating the matter.
The singer, who is on probation for assaulting fellow R&B singer Rihanna in 2009, has not been arrested or charged and his spokesperson had no immediate comment.
"A fan made an allegation that Chris Brown took her phone," a rep for the Miami Beach Police said in a statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com on Thursday, February 23. "MBPD is investigating the allegations. There has not been an arrest, no warrant has been issued and no charges have been filed." A police report was filed just after 4:43 a.m. on Sunday. The alleged incident is dubbed a "robbery by sudden snatching," which is a felony offense.
Spann, 24, told police that she was inside Cameo Theatre, a nightclub in Miami, on Sunday and saw Brown and music artist Tyga leaving the venue through a side door. She and her friends followed Brown outside and saw him entering a black Bentley.
She said she then took out her iPhone 4S and approached him. She said she took a picture of Brown while he was sitting inside of the vehicle, after which he allegedly "reached through his car window, snatched her phone from her hands and said, '(Expletive), you ain't going to put that on no website," according to the report.
Brown then rolled his window up and the vehicle carrying him drove away, Spann said.
She and Tyga have also not commented publily about the alleged incident.
If charged with a felony, Brown's probation could potentially be affected. He had assaulted Rihanna, who was his girlfriend at the time, after a pre-Grammy Awards party in 2009. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service and was ordered by the courts to receive domestic violence courses for a year.
Earlier this month, a judge denied a request from Brown's attorney that the singer's probation term be ended due to good behavior. He had completed a domestic violence course in 2010.
Brown and Rihanna have since appeared to make amends. They teamed up recently to collaborate on two songs together. The tracks were released on Monday. Rihanna recorded a remix of her song "Birthday Cake" featuring Brown reciting sexually charged lyrics.
"Girl, I wanna [expletive] you right now / been a long time/I've been missing your body," Brown sings on the track.
Brown also recorded a remix of his song "Turn Up the Music" which features Rihanna. That song can be heard below. Both singers Tweeted about the songs and ReTweeted each other as well.
Rihanna wrote,"@chrisbrown Turn up the music remix#RihannaNavy #Teambreezy enjoy," with a link to Brown's track.
It is unclear if the two were in the same studio when recording the new tracks.
Brown returned to the Grammy Awards this year where he performed twice during the ceremony and won best R&B album. Rihanna performed as well and picked up a trophy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
In October 2011, Rihanna told Esquire magazine about Brown, "I'm a fan of his stuff. I've always been a fan. Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I've put that behind me."
"I'm really excited to see the breakthrough he's had in his career," she added. "I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have."
Brown also Tweeted to Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, with a birthday wish. Rianna turned 24 on February 20.
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN" Brown wrote.
Rihanna replied, "Thanks."
