Exclusive: Source Says Chris Brown Is Not Homophobic

Published

A source close to Chris Brown is denying reports that the rapper used a homophobic slur during Sunday morning’s altercation in front of the W Hotel in D.C.

According to the source, Brown was specifically upset that the quote was being attributed to him. “Chris does a lot of work with APLA and gay rights organizations,” the source told HipHollywood exclusively. “CB is many things, but NOT homophobic.”

On Sunday, the singer and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy were arrested on felony assault charges after allegedly hitting a man.

According to the initial police report, the victim, identified as 20-year-old Isaac Adams Parker, said that he tried to jump into a photo with Brown who was posing with a female fan, and that’s when the singer allegedly yelled, “I’m not down with that gay sh*t … I feel like boxing.”

On Monday, the charges against the 24-year-old and his bodyguard were reduced to simple assault misdemeanors. The judge ordered Brown to report to his probation officer in California within 48 hours and to stay at least 100 yards away from the victim.

Brown and Hollosy are expected back in court on November 24.

Tracee Ellis Ross Spills The Real Tea On ‘Black-ish’ Wage Demands + Deon Cole, Jenifer Lewis Weigh In

Published

on

Tracee Ellis Ross is unveiling the truth behind recent reports that she was demanding more money for her time spent on ABC’s Black-ish.

Just last week, The Hollywood Reporter suggested Tracy was in negotiations and asking for more for not only going into her fourth season on the hit show, but because her male co-host, Anthony Anderson, makes significantly more than she does.

The report also claimed that if she didn’t make any headway, she might step away and consider guest starring on other shows.

Over the weekend, Ellis addressed the reports and didn’t exactly deny the claims. In a lengthy statement shared on social media, Ross said that she “was in renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during the fourth season of a successful show.”

She continued, “I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is to be a fully realized black woman on TV.”

She did, however, confirm that claims there were threats are false. “I wish I could have been called by the reporter to confirm that,” she wrote.

Tracy’s statement falls right in line with what her co-stars, Deon Cole and Jenifer Lewis, explained to HipHollywood on Sunday night during the 2018 SAG Awards.

When asked about Ross’ desire to earn more money, Lewis said, “Tracee should have more money, you should have more money, every woman should have more money because we’ve been in the background too long. ”

Television’s favorite mom continued, “We’ve got grab her by the pussy in the White House and women are not standing for it anymore. Black-ish is a very important show, we are dealing with all the pressing issues of our time … This is the time to look it in the face and address it and come through the fire. Women are not taking it anymore.”

Deon also shut down rumors that Ross would be taking a back seat, telling us “There’s two sides to every story. Tracee is fine, everybody is fine, and everybody is getting paid. Everybody is eating. It’s all love I promise you.”
