Update: Authorities are narrowing in on a possible suspect in this messy home invasion. Whoever masterminded the heist knew that Chris had just collected $50k for his pre-ESPY hosting gig in Hollywood that Wednesday morning, TMZ reports. The robbers let that tidbit slip while talking to his aunt during the job. Very few people knew about the freshly acquired stash in Breezy’s home, so authorities believe a promoter was likely behind the stick-up.
Early yesterday morning, Chris Brown’s San Fernando Valley mansion was hit in an armed robbery while he hosted a pre-ESPY party in Hollywood. According to TMZ, based on information given to authorities by Chris’ aunt, who was present during the robbery and forced into a closet at gunpoint, investigators believe that the perps were familiar with C.B. personally.
From the details that were released yesterday, it was clear that the masked robbers knew the home belonged to Breezy when they targeted it. But insiders are now buzzing that the culprits followed him to his hosting gig at Argyle and broke into his home when they knew he was partying.
Sources also say that Brown’s aunt overheard the culprits saying they needed to book before the platinum-selling singer came home. On the grounds of info they gathered from Chris’ aunt, authorities believe the thugs responsible had someone keeping tabs on the star while he was clubbing, and that they had been to Chris’ home before, so they were familiar with the layout.
Surprised? Well, word is C.B had a bad habit of inviting randoms to his crib after wild nights at the club. Plus, we all know how much he loves to surround himself with his Compton Blood homies. Welp…guess they got tired of sending intent thug threats to Tyson Beckford for free.
