LAS VEGAS, Jan. 2, 2016 (UPI) — Singer Chris Brown is under investigation for allegedly punching a Brazilian model in the face after she snapped a photo of him.
Liziane Gutierrez told TMZ she was at a private party in Brown’s suite at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas Saturday morning. Gutierrez said she sneaked her phone past security, and took it out during the party to snap a photo of Brown.
Brown allegedly lost his temper and hit Gutierrez. Gutierrez said she left the party and called the police.
ABC News reported Las Vegas police have listed Brown as a suspect in a battery investigation, but would not confirm further details of the alleged incident.
A representative for the singer told TMZ the accusations are “undeniably untrue.”
