A day after Star magazine reported that Brown spewed homophobic remarks at opposing players during a pickup basketball game, the scandal-scarred singer is sounding off.
And he is ticked.
Brown’s rep calls Star‘s tale, printed in the July 25 issue, utterly false, saying that Brown wasn’t even playing basketball on the day the magazine claims.
“A totally fictitious article ran in the current Star magazine accusing our client Chris Brown of doing something that he did not do,” says Brown’s rep of the story appearing in the July 25 issue that was reported online Wednesday by the tab’s sister site, Radar Online.
“He got really ticked off when things didn’t go his way during the game, saying, ‘That’s gay!’ and ‘You’re a f—–t a–!’ to the other players,” the magazine quotes an unnamed “eyewitness.” The article features a photo of Brown confronting another player.
So what’s Brown’s side of the story?
“He spent the entire day with dozens of members of the production team filming the video for ‘Body to Body’ at 1870 Sunset Paza in West Hollywood. The Star accompanied the fabricated story with a photo of Chris playing basketball in New York that was taken on the day of hisF.A.M.E. CD release in March,” his rep adds.
“Chris Brown’s management is considering taking appropriate legal action against the paper. Unfortunately this bogus account is being picked up by additional media outlets. We stand behind our client and want to set the record straight that this did not happen.”

They should totally pursue legal action. This is ridiculous. At this point in time, Chris doesn’t need anymore negativity surrounding him – be it true, or false.
Chris was recently featured on the front cover of the recently revived VIBE magazine and we now have some outtakes from the official photoshoot. There is also a video of Chris dancing during the VIBE photoshoot below.

What do you think about the sneak peek?
The leaked police photo of Rihanna’s battered face stunned and horrified the world. But now Star has learned that the pop princess worries that other shocking images could go public — wild sex tapes of her with abusive boyfriend Chris Brown!
In the March 30 issue of Star — on sale now — we report that Rihanna allowed Chris to record some of their, um, intimate moments and — she worries that the racy tapes could ruin her — especially after seeing how quickly Chris turned on her once before.
“Rihanna has no issues with her sexuality,” a source tells Star. “But she’d be mortified if her friends and family found this out!”
Insiders say Rihanna is still emotionally fragile and vulnerable since the Feb. 8 assault that left her nearly unconscious.
“This whole beating incident is terribly humiliating for her. She’s already traumatized and will do anything to make it all go away as quickly as possible,” explains the insider.

I think we’re going to have to start doing this every week now. I feel like Chris is becoming the new Britney Spears. Oh, who am I kidding?! Britney is the new Britney! Wonder if she’ll speak out about the situation next. Seems like everyone else has.
