Chris Brown has responded to TMZ regarding his parking valet incident.
More than likely either he and/or his advisors realize it’s not a good look for for him so now he’s trying to clarify his over the top actions.
Chris Brown says the reason he lost his temper and threatened a valet last night was because the guy tried to fleece him … TMZ has learned.
A source connected to Chris tells TMZ … the valet outside PINZ bowling alley in Studio City, CA — where Chris was attending a charity event — was supposed to charge $5 a pop … but when Chris tried to pick his car up, the valet tried to scam him by charging $10.
The source says other people who parked at PINZ last night were charged $5. Chris believes he was singled out because he’s famous.
Brown says it’s not about the money … it’s the principle of the thing.
Earlier we reported …
You would think that with cameras recording his every move in public, that Chris Brown would chill with actin’ the fool every opportunity he gets.
As we reported earlier, TMZ caught him going off on a parking valet over a $10 tab that he didn’t want to pay. Now the site has another video of Brown that they’re promoting as the singer/dancer threatening the valet.
In the court of public opinion, and maybe a real court, if he finds himself there again, Chris Brown is looking maladjusted and in need of anger management, among other things.
Check out what is reported … and the new video below.
TMZ has obtained NEW VIDEO of the Chris Brown valet incident … in which it’s clear — BROWN THREATENED THE VALET.
The new footage shows Chris cussing at the valet in front of PINZ bowling alley in Studio City, CA — where Brown had just attended a charity event for inner city youth.
The valet had asked for the $10 fee before handing Brown the keys — but Chris refused to pay because he was only at the event for a short time and didn’t feel it was fair.
Chris exploded in anger … getting right in the valet’s face and yelling, “Gimme my f*cking keys … f*ck ten dollars.”
Then comes the threat — “Gimme my keys … we gonna turn this whole spot up … I promise you.”
Translation — WE’LL GET VIOLENT IF YOU DON’T HAND OVER THE KEYS.
That’s when someone from Brown’s camp appears to give the valet $10 … and Brown snatches his keys back and says, “Funky ass ten dollars.”
