Chris Brown slams gay rumors as ‘lies’
28 May 2012

US singer Chris Brown has denied rumors that he is gay after R&B star Raz B outed him in his new book.

The founding member of boyband B2K made the claims in his upcoming tell-all memoir This Boys Life, leaked to Vibe.

Writing about Brown, he said: ‘What type of man hits a woman? A man that does not honour womanhood or the fragility of it. I also read that most men who beat women have latent homosexual tendencies. So there you go.’

In the book, which is released in September, Raz B outs several other rappers, including Bow Wow and Lil Wayne.

But Brown was furious at the claims, hitting out at the former singer on Twitter.

‘Lying about somebody in a book is called defamation of character,’ he tweeted.

‘Keep feeding people bullshit and ima end up owning you and that book! RAZ B! God bless…My lawyers are handling it! Lol ima chill!’

The post was later deleted by the Turn Up The Music singer but followers had already retweeted his comments.
