Frank Ocean wasn’t the only one injured in Sunday’s scuffle at a West Hollywood recording studio. On Tuesday, Chris Brown was seen leaving his house with a hard cast on his right hand covering his knuckles.

An eyewitness told TMZ that Chris threw the first punch after Frank refused to shake his hand. However, Chris insists that he did not make the first move.

Following the chaos, Chris reportedly fled the scene. Now the “Deuces” singer wants to speak with detectives and tell his side of the story.

Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, claims that the surveillance video shows that Chris did not throw a punch. But the video also clears Frank of any wrongdoing, only showing their crews fighting.

Frank cut his finger during the altercation. “got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol,” he tweeted. “cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the grammys.”
