Chris Brown Disappears From Instagram After Frank Ocean Fight

Days after getting into a physical altercation with fellow artist Frank Ocean, Chris Brown has deleted his Instagram account.
This is not the first time Brown has disappeared from social media after a public outburst. Back in November, Brown deleted his Twitter account after engaging in a war of words with TV producer and comedian Jenny Johnson.
He reactivated his account a few days later.
On Tuesday, following his fight with Ocean, Brown drew a Jesus crucifixion painting and posted it online.[[nid:1045736]]
“Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!" Brown wrote.
The New York Post reported that Ocean said he's “desirous of prosecution” after Brown allegedly threw the first punch in an altercation.
If Ocean follows through with pressing charges, Brown could be in a lot of trouble. He is on probation until 2014 for his 2009 domestic assault against Rihanna.
While Brown and Ocean were at Westlake Studio in Los Angeles, TMZ reported that both artists got into an altercation over a parking space. As Brown and his entourage were trying to leave Westlake, they were “blocked” by Ocean and his group.
“This is my studio, this is my parking spot,” the “Novacane” the singer allegedly said, before Brown tried to shake Ocean’s hand. After that, there are mixed reports as to whether friends of Brown or Ocean hit each other and started fighting.
The police were called around 10:45 p.m., but Brown was no longer at the scene. Ocean was, and no one pressed charges. Six people were involved in the altercation, reports said.
After the incident, Ocean, who is set to perform at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 10, tweeted, “got jumped by chris and a couple guys. Lol…cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the grammys [sic].”
