Chris Brown’s controversial past has left him with a target on his back. So much so, that horseplay with a woman can be perceived as a physical threat, depending on who’s watching.
In an incident that occurred on Monday morning, the superstar singer was hanging out at on the balcony of a Miami home with a few cool people, when paparazzi started snapping pics. In one of the photos, Brown is seen with his right hand around a woman’s neck.
Although the woman looks distressed in a few shots, she is also seen smiling at others, as both parties claimed the incident to be innocent horseplay. In fact, Brown’s lawyer even got involved to defuse the situation before it got out of hand, and even threatened the photographer for invading Brown’s privacy.
“She’s a friend,” Mark Geragos told TMZ. “It’s obviously playful as she confirmed. Whoever invaded their privacy will be held accountable.”
