Chris Brown experienced his latest run-in with the law on Tuesday, when he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon following an hours-long standoff with the police, after allegedly pulling a gun on a woman at his Tarzana, California, home. But the "I Can Transform Ya" singer has plenty of supporters as he weathers his latest legal plight -- and some of them are famous. Read on for a list of celebrities who've offered their support for Chris Brown.
Rapper 50 Cent took to his Instagram account to speak up for Brown. Pointing out that Btown's accuser, Baylee Curran, had reportedly been accused of theft for allegedly stealing a purse in 2013, the rapper wrote, "This Bitch was trying to steal something got kicked out then called the cops see. Smh you can't make this shit up. Lol."
Ray J, who was reportedly at Brown's home at the time of the alleged incident, also hit up Instragram, posting a video in which he declared, "I'm real upset about today. I'm not happy with how things are being handled and about how people can take a false story and blow it up into something way more than it should be."
Singer/actress Keke Palmeralso posted a video, saying, "I really wish that people would stop messing with Chris Brown ... I ain't saying he's perfect, I don't know him like that. But, I mean, I wish we would pray for motherf--kers instead of hating them."
Hulk Hogan took to Twitter and offered, "Praying for Chris Brown only love" -- though he also later tweeted, "Chris needs to start loving God and get correct," so it seems like he might still be wrestling with the issue.
Rapper Lil Mama likewise put her support behind Brown, writing, "I love @chrisbrownofficial and I AM TIRED OF SEEING HIM HURT. But for right now I'm just praying for his safety."
Singer Bruno Mars tweeted his support on Tuesday night, writing, "Prayin for ya @chrisbrown we need ya."
"Love L.A." Rapper Young Scrap blasted Brown's haters while defending the singer, writing, "Prayers are up for Chris Brown...it's crazy how some of you can't wait for him to fall."
