Chris Brown Claims He Was Disinvited From NBA All-Star Game


Chris Brown claims he was disinvited from playing in this weekend's NBA All-Star Game due his domestic violence history. He posted screenshots of emails on his Instagram Story that seemed to back up the story.

One is titled “NBA All-Star 2024 Welcome x Chris Brown” and read “We are thrilled that you will be part of the weekend!” Another showed the blue uniform he'd be wearing as part of Lil Wayne's team.

“I was asked by the NBA to play in the all star game this year! Only for them to call later and say they couldn’t do IT because of their sponsors, like RUFFLES,” Brown wrote. “At this point I’m sick of people bothering me and I’m tired of living in the f—ing past.”

Ruffles and the NBA later responded, saying the company had no part in "any player decisions or celebrity invite discussions” as a sponsor.
