In response to last Sunday’s brawl with singer Frank Ocean, a Los Angeles judge has ordered Chris Brown, who is still on probation stemming from his 2009 assault on “Battleship” star Rihanna, to stay away from the hologram of dead rapper Tupac Shakur, after deciding he is a negative influence on Brown.
In making the decision, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Frank Citron pointed out that since Brown met the hologram of Shakur at last year’s Coachella Musical Festival, the two have become inseparable, leading to Brown’s bad behavior getting worse.
“That judge is a moron,” Brown told Hollywood & Swine. “Tupac’s hologram is just as good of a role model as Tupac was when he was alive. If I didn’t stop hanging out with Rihanna when the court ordered me to, then I’m definitely not going to stop hanging out with the hologram of Tupac.”
The lastest controversy follows last year’s brawl between Brown and Drake, as well as violating his probation after beating a woman in checkers (Hollywood & Swine, April 13, 2012).
Brown’s refusal to distance himself from the hologram of Tupac and stay out of trouble has already cost Brown several movie and TV roles. Most recently, Brown was scheduled to guest star on NBC’s “Law and Order: SVU,” but the show’s producers decided to recast Brown with a more likeable person and instead hired former convicted rapist Mike Tyson.
Brown is confident Hollywood will be offering him movie roles after he stars in his passion project, the biopic of singer and domestic violence legend, Ike Turner, for which he and the hologram of Tupac are currently writing the screenplay.
