Frank Ocean Called 'Faggot' During Chris Brown Brawl, Reports TMZ

Singer Frank Ocean reported to police officers that he was called "faggot" during a recent brawl with Chris Brown and his entourage in Los Angeles last week, according to an official incident report obtained by TMZ.

According to TMZ, the documents from the Ocean-Brown brawl detail the fight that occurred over a parking spot at a recording studio in a West Hollywood, Calif. The report says, per TMZ, that Brown punched Ocean after Ocean told the "Don't Wake Me Up" singer he had parked in Ocean's spot. Two men from Brown's crew then jumped Ocean.

During the brawl, Ocean reportedly heard someone yell "faggot" but wasn't sure who said it, according to TMZ. The document also reveals that Brown threatened to shoot Ocean.

The "Wise Men" singer has decided not to file charges against Brown for the Jan. 27 incident.

"As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man," Ocean wrote on his Tumblr on Monday. "But as a man I am not a killer. I'm an artist and a modern person. I'll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. Peace, albeit trite, is what i want in my short life. Peace."

This is not the first time Brown has been accused of making a homophobic slur against Ocean, who came out in a July post on his Tumblr account. In the post, Ocean revealed he had fallen in love with a man when he was 19 years old.

Just weeks after Ocean came out, Brown reportedly said, "Man, no homo," when a paparazzi asked him for a comment on Ocean's big revelation.

Brown, also being accused at the time of attacking a fan and calling the man "faggot," later denied using the slur against Ocean. He attempted to clear the air, tweeting, "My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ......... Love who u wanna love. It's ur decision. People stop searching for BS."
