Chris Brown has apparently decided to take a break from social networking for a while, setting his Instagram account to private and more recently, shutting it down entirely.
On Tuesday night, his final post consisted of gratitude towards his loyal fans consisting of over 2 million followers, whom he affectionately refers to in the social networking world as "Team Breezy". He then posted the message, "Social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I'm detaching myself from that world." The account was then set to private, but a recent visit to his Instagram page, @f-kyopictures comes up with the default message "Page Not Found" so the account looks like he may not be returning to Instagram anytime soon.
The last time he took a break from social networking was in November when he got into a Twitter fight or "twight" with comedian Jenny Johnson and went on a Twitter hiatus by deactivating his account for a while. The latest development comes close on the heels of a recently reported fight between Brown and R&B singer Frank Ocean. It's alleged that Brown and Ocean got into a physical brawl on Sunday at Westlake recording studio in L.A.
TMZ reports that Brown was visiting the studio and that Ocean and entourage prevented Brown from leaving the studio's parking lot. "This is my studio, this is my parking spot," said Frank, according to sources. It's alleged that Brown attempted to shake Ocean's hand when someone from Ocean's entourage attacked Brown. When one of Brown's friends tried to defend him, Frank and Chris began to fight. Ocean took to Twitter to talk about the fight tweeting, "got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there."
Ocean wants to press charges and Los Angeles authorities have started an investigation and will question both singers. Some recently taken photos of Chris Brown show the singer wearing a cast on his hand. Monday, Brown posted a photo of a painting of Jesus on the cross along with the caption "Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!"
