Chris Brown is having quite a week. This week his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran and her best friend Joseph Ryan La Cour each got a restraining order against him.
There is no doubt that Breezy will go down as one of the best artist of this generation, but his demons might take him away from us too early. Every big name artist these days wants a Chris Brown feature because every song that he is featured on will almost certainly be a hit. Some of his friends and former associates are so concerned about him that they are going public with his drug addiction, Billboard reported.
The lengthy report alleges that Chris Brown is addicted to cocaine and regularly pops Molly (MDMA) and drinks sizzurp also known as lean, which is a mixture of soda and codiene. He also smokes weed daily and uses Xanax to counter the side effects of those other drugs. Drinking lean and taking Xanax is not new news, since Chris Brown admitted it himself back in 2014 when he did time behind bars for a probation violation.
Folks who work for Chris Brown revealed that he would regularly lash out against them for no reason. One of his ex managers, Mike G, confirmed a similar story last year and even filed a lawsuit against Breezy for allegedly beating him up. Brown shot back saying that Mike G stole money from him.
“He will cuss you out and say, ‘Hey, man, I’m functioning,” a current member of Chris Brown’s crew said. “‘I’m going to get the work out.’ And he does. But [he’s not] the first functional star who thinks they can handle those powerful drugs. I got to say with all my heart, he’s dancing with death.”
One of Brown’s associates even said that no one ever knows which side of Chris Brown you will get when you wake up in the morning. Despite the damning report, Brown’s record label is sticking by him and that is expected. “We’re proud to be in business with Chris, a uniquely gifted artist who is always striving to be better,” RCA Records said in a statement. “Through his ups and downs, we will continue to stand behind him.”
