Most people would find photos of Chris Brown whose hand around a woman's neck is alarming, but after some of those images have recently surfaced, both Brown and the woman in the picture say they were playing around. TMZ reports that Chris and the mysterious woman on these photos were in Miami because he was in town with friends during the Ultra Music Festival. In the movies, Chris is wrapped with his right hand around the throat of a woman, with another unidentified woman nearby, who looks like she wants to prevent it from happening. She seems really desperate while smiling at some others.
Brown's attorney Mark Geragos said TMZ the woman was "a friend" of Brown, and that behind this gesture, beyond friendly play, there is no evil intent. "It's obviously playful, as she confirmed," he explained, adding, "Anyone who invades their privacy will be held accountable."
It's hard to draw parallels between the photos and Brown's attack on his girlfriend Rihanna and reports that he abused his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Since then, Chris's problems with abuse, temperament and drug abuse have remained in the foreground and have automatically made images like these questionable. There seems to be no cause for concern this time around.
