Chris Brown addresses remarks he allegedly made about newly out Frank Ocean

Grammy winning R&B singer says: 'Love who u wanna love'

The bad blood between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean started well before Ocean  revealed his sexuality earlier this month

But their feud ratcheted up another notch over the weekend when Brown reportedly had some choice words when asked about Ocean when asked about the singer by a paparazzi when leaving a nightclub in France.

According to a PRLog report, Brown responded by saying: ‘Man, no homo!’

‘No homo’ is a phrase that has become well known in the hip-hop community meaning a rejection of anything that could be deemed as ‘gay’.

Brown took to Twitter earlier today (30 July) to try and clear things up: 'My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ......... Love who u wanna love. It's ur decision. People stop searching for BS.'

The Grammy winner does not directly deny making the comment but does tweet: '...Everyone is so quick to point the wrong fingers at each other! Ask urself... Am I Doing everything I can to help the world ????'

He then adds: 'The world is so bent on social acceptance that we've forgotten what makes us special... Our individuality! #Imdone #readabookbitch.'

Ocean’s first major label solo album, Channel Orange, was released days after he came out. It has stormed to critical and commercial success, reaching the top of the US Billboard R&B chart.
