Breezy is under fire!
Chris Brown has sparked a huge backlash after claiming that he wants to go on a world tour with Rihanna, Beyonce and Bruno Mars.
The ‘Heartbreak On A Full Moon’ singer, who recently ended his ‘Party’ tour, wants to hit the road again as part of an incredible all-star R&B line-up.
“A CRAZY WORLD TOUR would BEYONCE, RIHANNA, BRUNO MARS, CHRIS BROWN. “2 for 2”. And if y’all decide to do it without me... give me 10%,” he said on Twitter.
Just thinking.... A CRAZY WORLD TOUR would BEYONCE, RIHANNA, BRUNO MARS, CHRIS BROWN. “2 for 2”. And if y’all decide to do it without me... give me 10%.— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) 9 February 2018
However following the tweet, Chris Brown was slammed by fans concerned for the safety of Rihanna, following his history of domestic abuse and sparked a heated debate.
Nah rihanna is pregnant and busy living her best life being treated like a princess by her millionaire I mean billionaire boyfriend.Respect that. You expect her to go on tour with her ex boyfriend to perform cake cake cake I dunno if @rihanna is bout that life9yrs too late— Juliette Wilson (@Aboutjulez) 10 February 2018
Chris Brown didn’t just hit Rihanna and it was over with. Other women have said he is mentally/emotionally abusive towards them. He stalked Karrueche and joked about killing her and put hands on her as well. She was granted a protection order against him in their state.— Richey Collazo (@RlCHEYY) 12 February 2018

People are still letting that situation with Chris Brown and Rihanna cloud their brains that they forget Chris Brown is still incredibly talented and definitely up there with the greats.— Mrs Joshua. (@mamasupermalt) 10 February 2018
Lmao ya act like chris brown really be wilding. Outside his Rihanna situation which was over a decade ago. And his lil thing with karruchae ya act like he’s just straight problematic and try to use that to downplay his talent— Captain Wolfe (@savage_wolfe) 11 February 2018
Interestingly, some fans even suggested that Chris Brown was simply not big enough to share the stage with his R&B peers.

People were really saying Chris Brown, talent wise, does not belong in the same bracket as Beyonce, Rihanna and Bruno. Lol y'all are something else. Hate the man coz he is a trash human being but can never question the Man's talent FAM.— Skywalker (@TseMonate_ZA) 12 February 2018
