Earlier today, police made their presence outside of Chris Brown's home very known, following the allegation that an unidentified woman is claiming the R&B singer thratened her with a gun.

Police have now entered the Southern California residence, after being issued a search warrant hours after arriving on the scene.

Previous reports from TMZ that weapons were found have not yet been confirmed. Police reportedly received the call regarding the alleged threat at 3AM earlier this morning.

LAPD Lt. Chris Ramirez said at a news conference this afternoon that people were being removed from Brown's home and would be interviewed after a "protective sweep" of the home was completed.

The ongoing situation is currently being live-streamed, and the footage shows that Brown is cooperating with police and sitting outside on the ground while they conduct their lawful search of his home.

Original story:

There’s a SWAT team reportedly outside of Chris Brown’s Los Angeles residence as we speak after reports surfaced that he pulled a gun on a woman.

TMZ says the LAPD is trying to obtain a search warrant to find the gun the woman described to police. When reached by phone, a spokesperson for the department did confirm they’re at Brown’s residence, but wouldn’t agree to the fact they’re attempting to obtain a warrant. The site later claimed that drugs and weapons were found at the singer's home.

"All I can confirm right now is that our robbery/homicide division is handling incident that occurred at Chris Brown's house earlier,” the spokesperson said. “There's no standoff or anything, just a matter of getting our robbery/homicide division guys and our PIs down there to get some more information for you guys."

CB is now responding to all the allegations that have surfaced so far and is describing them as an attempt to ruin his image. Taking to Instagram he denied all current reports surrounding the alleged dispute.

“What the f**k else do you want from me? I stay out of the way, take care of my daughter, do work. I don’t even f**k ugly b****es, trifelin b****es, whatever the f**k it is,” he said in the video. “I’m not on that bro. I’m too tired to be dealing with this b***s**t. Every three months you come up with something bro. What’s going to be next?”

In a separate video Brown then questioned the sense of the situation and claims there’s no motive for him threatening anyone.

“Barricaded myself in my house? Have you seen my house? I’m going to barricade myself in the palace? I’m not coming out, for what? I ain’t did s**t,” he said. “I ain’t gon’ do s**t and that’s all it’s gon’ be. F**k the police, Black Lives Matter, n***a.”

Tuesday’s (August 30) saga began when an unnamed woman reportedly called 911 in the early morning hours and claimed Brown threatened her with a gun after the two got into an argument at Brown's home. Subsequently, she filed a police report, which had law enforcement responding to his home where they reportedly are now.
