Chris Brown Allegedly Blows Pot Smoke In A Flight Attendant’s Face, But His Side Of The Story Is Much Tamer
You might be wondering what Chris Brown is up to these days. Wearing matching outfits with his adorable one-year-old daughter Royalty? Check. Dropping videos with Jamie Foxx and preparing for a major tour? Uh huh. Allegedly blowing pot smoke at flight attendant and harassing crew members on his private jet? Sigh. Possibly. If the allegations are true, Chris Brown blew marijuana smoke in a flight attendant's face, thus taking one step forward — kudos to him for embracing fatherhood and falling head over heels for Royalty — but almost immediately taking 10 gargantuan steps back.
According to Us Weekly, the star was reportedly flying on a private jet and "smoking a ton of pot" — this despite the fact that the FAA is not cool with smoking on any flight of any kind, private or commercial. The crew reportedly brought this law to Brown's attention, but instead of quitting the good stuff, a source claims: "He blew smoke at the flight attendant and said, 'I paid $60,000 for this jet, so I own it and everyone inside.'"
A Us Weekly source also said that Brown allegedly lit another joint before the flight landed and made it clear to a female flight attendant that he had no use for her because he didn't want to make her a part of his mile-high club: "He told her, 'What is your old ass doing here anyway? I like to have the help be people I'd actually like to f--k.'" Bustle has reached out to Brown's rep for comment, but has not yet heard back.
The singer's publicist, Nicole Perna, spoke to the New York Daily News and said, "This story is false." She further explained that Brown and a friend were smoking cigarettes: "The pilot explained it was a non-smoking flight (as per FAA regulations for commercial and private planes) so Chris immediately extinguished his cigarette." She added,
Contrary to the story, there was only one flight attendant, not two and Chris was never rude to her. In addition, Chris did not pay for the plane, the music label paid. This current story is obviously inaccurate, full of lies and simply untrue.
It's difficult to cheer for Brown. Since he was arrested for assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna — and that happened six long years ago — I, and many others, haven't had much faith in his behavior improving. He seems to try to be a good guy, sometimes. I mean, you know, he posts messages like this one:
But then he has his probation revoked because he can't keep himself away from a nightclub in which a shooting took place (one that he wasn't involved in), even after a judge barred him from going back there. And then, on a different day, he just happens to be named a suspect in a battery incident in which he is being accused of assaulting a man at a basketball game in Las Vegas. And this happened after he pleaded guilty to "simple assault" for another incident in 2013. I've heard of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but it seems like Brown could get himself into trouble at choir practice.
And then there was that whole nonsense with Karrueche Tran where he accused her of sleeping with Drake. Reminding Tran to "be a lady" and "not let the Thot form from anger." Wait, what was I saying about Chris Brown and a private jet?
Regardless of what happened on the plane, when your reputation is so tarnished because of past offenses, you'll have a hard time getting people to give you the benefit of the doubt.
