LAPD, S.W.A.T Show Up At Chris Brown's House Due To Gun Allegations

...and CB is not having it.

Chris Brown woke up this morning to something he's none too pleased about.

Allegations swirled that the Royalty musician threatened a young woman with a gun after an argument in his Los Angeles home earlier this morning (Aug. 30).

According to TMZ, "Chris was in the house with several friends, including Ray J. They were talking and at one point Ray was getting a tattoo when some "uninvited guests" appeared inside the house and were asked to leave." The story starts to get a little muffled after that, with the woman who called 911 claiming that Brown pulled a gun on her after asking her and another woman to leave, while another person inside the house insists that Breezy was asleep the entire time.

"At some point Ray J left the house and when he got to the base of the driveway, police handcuffed him and seized his BMW," TMZ writes. "They checked his ID, uncuffed him and let him go, but kept his car as evidence."

Several news outlets are also reporting that the LAPD and the S.W.A.T are currently outside of Brown's house as part of the ongoing investigation, and are waiting for a warrant to search his home.

While heaps of drama and speculation is unfolding around him, the R&B star is posting Instagram videos voicing his disdain with the entire situation.

"So, I’m sleep half the damn night, I just wake up, all these mother f**kin' helicopter choppers is around," he says in one video posted not too long ago. "Come on, my ni**a. What the f**k else do y'all want from me, bro? Every three months y'all come up with somethin’ bro…what’s gonna be next? I’m gonna fart an elephant?”

In another video, Brown says that this is just good publicity for him (he even manages to plug his song "Grass Ain't Greener"), however, he continues to proclaim his innocence. He says that the police are "the worst gang in the world," and that they won't find any gun in his house.

Nicki Minaj's Boyfriend Kenneth Petty Received 18 Violations During Prison Stint

Nicki Minaj's new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty has a very troubled past.

On Friday (Dec. 14), TMZ revealed court documents disclosing Petty's history of disciplinary actions while he was an inmate in New York for manslaughter from 2006 to 2013.

When he entered the correctional facility, he was reportedly written up for creating a disturbance. Later during his stint, he was hit with a slew of disciplinary actions following a series of violent actions that included fighting, making terroristic threats, and "disobeying a direct order."

In 2009, prison faculty placed him in solitary confinement for four months as part of being reprimanded for nine different violations. Petty lost privileges that included the usage of the inmate telephone service, recreational activity, and the prison canteen.

In addition to his prison violations, Petty is a convicted sex offender. At the age of 16, he was tried as an adult served a four-year sentence for attempted rape of a minor.

Petty, who hails from the same borough as Nicki, Queens, knew the platinum-selling rap star since she was a teenager. They dated for a short period years prior to reuniting.

Minaj posted various photos of her and Petty going on a vacation getaway earlier this month. Sources close to Minaj told the celebrity gossip website that the 36-year-old hip-hop artist is  "happier than she's been in years" with Petty.

Sandy Hook Elementary Evacuates After Bomb Threat On 6th Anniversary Of Mass Shooting

Sandy Hook Elementary School was reportedly forced to evacuate its students and administration on Friday (Dec. 14), after receiving a bomb threat, CNN reports. The incident occurred on the sixth anniversary of the school's tragic mass shooting.

Newtown, Connecticut Police Lt. Aaron Bahamonde stated that the threat didn't appear to be substantial, but they decided to  evacuate the facility as an extra precaution.

Bomb squads reportedly swept the school and surrounding area for explosive devices but did not discover anything on the property. They later concluded that there was no immediate threat. The school administration dismissed students and faculty for the rest of the day however, considering the previous incident.

As previously noted, Sandy Hook endured a horrific mass shooting on Dec. 14, 2012, in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult, staff members.

Earlier this month, thousands of documents were released about Lanza that revealed his mental state and social status in the years leading up to the shooting.

The shooting is not believed to be in connection to the recent string of bomb scares around the nation that targeted major politicians including the former first families Barack and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton.
