Chris Brown has addressed a recent altercation that took place backstage at the Lovers & Friends Festival in a statement posted on Instagram on Sunday. The statement comes after a video surfaced of the musician in a heated exchange with an unidentified person.

Brown downplayed the incident, saying that he intervened when security was clearing people off the stage and people started pushing back. He emphasized that he was simply trying to let security know that his child was backstage and that he wanted to keep them safe. Brown dismissed the incident as people trying to drag a narrative and didn’t address the alleged incident with Usher that occurred at his recent birthday party.

“Yall been geeked all weekend, y’all dragging it now,” Brown wrote, as caught by TheShadeRoom. “It was mad people backstage and security was trying to clear everyone off the stage. People started pushing back.. I INTERVENED To let them know MY CHILD WAS BACK THERE. So y’all can keep ya narrative.”

The alleged altercation between Brown and Usher reportedly occurred after Brown became upset about a planned performance that was ultimately scrapped at last year’s AMAs. Sources close to the situation say that the performance was being planned with the involvement of Teyana Taylor, and Brown reportedly blamed Usher for its cancellation.

TMZ initially reported that Usher’s nose and face were banged up in the altercation with Brown, but the singer appeared unharmed during his performance at the Lovers & Friends Festival the following night. Brown has not addressed the incident publicly, and neither has Usher.

The Lovers & Friends Festival was held in Las Vegas on May 6-7, and featured a lineup of top R&B and hip-hop performers, including Mariah Carey, Missy Elliott, Nelly, Busta Rhymes, and more.

Brown’s statement on the recent altercation has received mixed reactions from fans, with some questioning why he brings his child to every show and others wondering why he did not address the incident with Usher. However, the singer has not provided any further clarification or comment on either incident at this time.
