The misfortunes of Virginia crooner Chris Brown continue to mount as news of various death threats the singer has received have begun to surface. According to TMZ, Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, received a number of anonymous phone calls at his office threatening the singer’s life.
Specifics on the nature of the threats remain scarce, but were taken “very seriously” by Brown’s lawyer.
Authorities were immediately contacted by Geragos and the threats are currently being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department.
Geragos previously represented Brown during both the arrest and trial that stemmed from his 2009 assault on fellow singer and former girlfriend Rihanna.
Despite news of the death threats, the singer still managed to perform at last night’s (May 19) Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas and even went on to send a handful of Tweets following his performance.
