Chris Brown has been accused of punching a female inside of a Las Vegas hotel suite, according to TMZ.
The alleged victim, whose name is Liziane Gutierrez, claims she was present at a private party in Chris Brown’s suite at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas early Saturday morning (January 2). Gutierrez says she was able to smuggle her cellphone into the suite without Brown’s security noticing. She subsequently alleges that when she took a picture of the Virginia singer, he “went off, yelling, taking her phone and punching her once in her right eye.”
Gutierrez says she left the party and a few hours later, called the police. She was not, however, taken to the hospital.
8 News NOW reports that the alleged incident took place at 10:20 am local time Saturday morning.
The station reports that Metro Police attempted to contact Brown in the hotel room, however they were not permitted entry. They later determined that he had already left the location prior to officers’ arrival.
Representatives of Chris Brown have since released a statement to VIBE regarding the alleged incident – calling Gutierrez’s allegations “complete fabrication.”
“Making false accusations seems to be a pattern of behavior for Ms. Gutierrez,” the statement reads. “Whatever her motives, her statements are unequivocally untrue. Ms Gutierrez was escorted out of the private after party at the Palms Casino Resort for being disruptive and out of control. Once she was in the hallway, while waiting for Chris Brown’s security to bring out her phone, she had a total meltdown-throwing her purse to the ground and claiming that she ‘could buy everyone in the hotel’-as witnessed by numerous people waiting to get into the party. The Palms Casino Resort security also saw her wild behavior via hotel security cameras and immediately came up to the hallway to escort her out of the hotel.
“Her claim that she had her phone in her possession inside the after party and was able to take a photo causing an altercation with Chris Brown is a complete fabrication,” the statement continues. “We aren’t sure what mood altering substances Ms. Gutierrez was on but her statements are completely false and not based in reality. This seems like a clear case of retaliation for her bruised ego.”
