Chris Brown and Brian McKnight Engage in Nasty Twitter Beef

Chris Brown and Brian McKnight Engage in Nasty Twitter Beef

Chris Brown calls Brian McKnight "old" and "irrelevant."

Published June 4, 2012

Chris Brown is at it again. It seems the R&B singer has designated his Twitter account as the official staging area for his public disputes. This past Saturday (June 2) veteran R&B singer Brian McKnight was Breezy's focal point.

Responding to criticism over the appropriateness of his adult-themed mixtape, McKnight sarcastically asked what was appropriate if his mixtape was not, and in the process alluded to the public scandals of both Chris Brown and R. Kelly.  

"Since everyone's so opinionated I'm taking suggestions on what I should do next I'm thinking rent a lambo and beat the s--- outta my girl…That's acceptable these days," he tweeted. He later alluded to R. Kelly, writing "Or maybe have sex with a 14 year-old girl on film if that's acceptable these days."

Although R. Kelly has yet to respond, Brown took to Twitter a few hours later to strike back.

"I see how this works now… When peoples careers get to the 'nobody cares' stage they use my name for publicity! lol I can't keep helping these old n----. Its a miracle the way I'm bring the dead alive," he tweeted.  

"I would've gladly wrote you something that would make u look less irrelevant," Breezy continued. "Listening to 'let me show u how ur P works'!!! THAT S**T IS TRASH! If u need help just ask!"  

In Breezy's defense, Knight threw the first shot but this is just one in a growing number of public Twitter spats that have involved Breezy and other celebs like Odd Future, Frank Ocean, Meek Mill, John Legend, Rihanna and more.
