Chris Brown denies calling fan a 'faggot'

R&B singer blasts gay slur story as a 'fabrication' which uses homophobia to gain attention
R&B singer Chris Brown denies calling a gay fan 'faggot' after he asked for his autograph in Los Angeles

Hip hop star Chris Brown has denied calling a fan a 'faggot'.

The singer is reported to have attacked Lucas Peter after he asked Brown for an autograph outside a movie theater in Los Angeles on Friday (19 October).

Peter told RadarOnline that the Turn Up The Music chart topper refused to sign anything and hurled homophobic abuse when confronted about it.

However, Brown's representative claims that the allegations were untrue.

'This is a fabricated story that horribly uses the subject of homophobia as a means to garner attention to one’s self,' the rep told Entertainmentwise.

Openly gay Lucas says Brown further threatened him he lost his temper and called him a 'wife-beater'.

He said: 'I walked over to where Chris was getting in the elevator and called him a wife beater and asked him if he was going to beat Rihanna again.

'Chris said, "I beat pussy" and then his bodyguard tried to scare me by saying, "And I beat men".'

It's not the first time the star has been accused of homophobia, landing in trouble in July for saying 'No homo' when asked about newly out rapper Frank Ocean.

In May this year, Brown denied rumors he is gay after rapper Raz B outed him in his book.

However, Brown has repeatedly denied that he is anti-gay.
