R&B’s Favorite Bad Boy Arrested

Chris Brown was arrested on Thursday night, moments after wrapping up his concert in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The 29-year-old singer was taken into police custody by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for an out-of-county warrant, according to online court records.

Police waited for Brown to finish his set at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre before immediately escorting him into a cruiser, #TMZ reported.

He was booked at 11:00 p.m. local time and placed on $2,000 bond. Brown posted the bond and was released just before midnight, according to records.

The warrant was for felony battery and was issued in April 2017 by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office, a spokesperson for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office told #PEOPLE.

Police said Brown allegedly “sucker punched” a 29-year-old club photographer in Tampa during a paid appearance at AJA Channelside around 1 a.m. local time on April 17. The alleged victim claimed that Brown attacked him because he was taking photos after Brown arrived at the venue for an afterparty “showing.”

Brown had left by the time officers arrived on the scene and the victim declined medical attention, though he suffered a “minor” cut to his lip, according to police. The victim said he intended to prosecute.

In a statement on Facebook at the time, the club wrote, “Incidents like the ones caused by Chris Brown and his team are very sad to see. As everyone witnessed he showed up to the club at around 1:30am. After only a few minutes of being there, Chris Brown himself and his team assaulted our club photographer and proceeded to walk out of the venue.”

“AJA Channelside and our employees apologize for the inconvenience,” the statement continued. “Assault charges were pressed and we are dealing with the proper authorities accordingly. We appreciate your constant support!”

Hate Him Now….

#Nas is one who never has to worry about money…. He’s hit the jackpot once again. This time with his latest investment. #PillPack was just bought by #Amazon for $1 Billion… as if he’s not rich enough!

The artist picks the right kinds of business ventures. A recent announcement revealed Amazon’s acquisition of an online pharmacy called PillPack. The startup offers a door-to-door service, enabling their customers to stock up by ordering online and having their products delivered directly to their homes.

PillPack was backed by Nas’ Queensbridge Venture Partners as an early investor in 2014. The fund is said to have raised $8.8 million. Since then, a total of $118 million was amassed in private capital investments before Amazon’s involvement. The deal is set to be finalized this fall. TJ Parker and Elliot Cohen, the owners of the online pharmacy, are each making $100 million from the deal. Nas and his crew are more than like to have hefty cheques coming in too.

Nas has been winning big in business on the low. This is the second time Amazon buys out one of his investments. In March, the retail giant shelled out $1 billion to purchase Ring, a smart doorbell company. Nas came out of that deal with a cool $40M. Queensbridge Venture Partners also had a hand in Lyft, Genius (FKA Rap Genius) and more. It seems like the New York City native moves in silence for the most part. Folks should not be fooled by his humble demeanor. #scmradio #djmshypnotique.
