Chris Brown And His Security Jumped Usher Over An Incident With Teyana Taylor
In news that has shocked a nation to its core, Chris Brown once again proved that society should never have given him that redemption arc after news came out that he jumped Usher. TMZ says that the incident took place at a skate rink birthday party for Chris. Presumably, Usher blew out Chris’s candles and ate the biggest birthday cake, resulting in the 34-year-old having a tantrum and trying to beat up Usher. Wuh oh, looks like somebody’s just entered their terrible (mid-)thirties!
The attack on Usher happened this weekend at a roller rink in Las Vegas. Apparently, Usher is good friends with Chris (big mistake) and threw him the throwback birthday bash. However, because it’s Chris Brown we’re talking about, the party couldn’t be a peaceful affair where everyone ate pizza and skated to the Spin Doctors‘ Two Princes. Chris decided to get into an argument with party guest Teyana Taylor which ultimately ended in Usher getting socked in the face. via TMZ:
things unfortunately got ugly in the wee hours of the morning … when eyewitnesses tell us Chris was attempting to talk to Teyana Taylor, who was also in attendance and sitting on a bench just outside of the rink. We’re told, for whatever reason, Teyana was ignoring him.
Chris began yelling at his guest for the heinous crime of not giving THEE Chris Brown attention. Supposedly, Chris’s issue with Teyana related to being pulled from the AMAs last year.
TMZ can confirm reporting by B. Scott, who said the drama appears to have stemmed from Chris’ scrapped AMAs performance last year — when he was set to do an MJ tribute, only to claim he got the rug pulled out from under him last minute.
the reason he went after Teyana here is because we’re told she was actually involved in the planning of that performance … but something went awry before the day of. This makes sense, as it’s been widely reported of late that TT has stepped into the role of a creative director lately for a number of artists/their shows.

Usher tried to calm things down but the peacemaking backfired.
We’re told Chris wasn’t having it, cursing at Usher and Teyana — but then, mostly focusing his anger directly at Usher. Eventually, our sources say Chris told his crew they were leaving and they exited the facility. We’re told Usher took off his skates and went after them.
Our eyewitness — who says they were present for this — tells us they saw Usher go behind a string of charter buses that were parked in the lot … where Chris and his crew were at. We’re told a short time later, Usher emerged with what appeared to be a bloody nose.
I’m imagining Usher fumbling with crusty rental skates to rush after the birthday boy. Nothing has been officially confirmed, so this is currently all hearsay. Complex reported that Usher later posted an update on Instagram Stories backstage with no visible injuries.

I’ve never heard of beef with Usher, and he’s supposedly a chill dude, so this is a weird turn of events. I guess Usher finally understands the age-old adage: never be friends with Chris Brown!
