UPDATE 1:55 PM
Not long after news of Chris’ alleged ties to the Bloods in Los Angeles broke, MTV released an interview with the singer in which he tells Sway Calloway he has no gang affiliations.
“When you’re in L.A. and you’re around people, you meet everybody – you meet Crips, you meet Bloods, especially in this industry that I’m in,” he said during the sit down. “I”m not in the country world, I’m not in the all-the-way pop world. When you’re in hip-hop, all of that meshes.”
Chris did, however, say he has a relationship with members of gangs.
“I’m cordial,” he said.
Check out the interview clip above.
Chris Brown’s family and friends are doing everything they can to save him from the streets.
According to TMZ, both Chris’ mother and girlfriend, Karreuche Tran, are worried about the singer. They’re said to have reached out to Breezy’s therapist in a last ditch effort to save him from the gangs he allegedly runs with. Breezy has been unabashedly promoting his affiliation with one specific gang for years. TMZ reports that those closest to Chris are worried he’s endangering his safety and potentially risking his career.
In recent weeks, Chris has been at the center of two very violent incidents, one of which authorities believed was directly related to gang affiliation. The Los Angeles Police Department has allegedly reached out to several clubs in the area, asking that they don’t allow Brown and his crew to host or attend events in their establishments. Authorities say wherever Breezy and his crew go, violence follows and they’re tired of it.
Hopefully, the 25-year-old listens to his mama and his girl. He’s certainly seen enough trouble for a lifetime.
