Gossip: Is Chris Brown Getting Ready to Get Dropped From His Record Label?

Chris Brown has been acting real questionable these days. Some would even say that Breezy has been somewhat more erratic than he usually is, and many are starting to question if it’s due to stress of less than stellar record sales. Yesterday, the young singer remained a hot topic on the urban gossip blogs as he’s rumored to be dating Rihanna again (we already shot that down and we were the first blog to confirm that he was spotted in France with Karrueche), he also pissed off the gay community the other day with his inappropriate remarks about Frank Ocean’s sexuality and seemed to get snarky with rapper Soulja Boy for rocking his signature blond hairstyle. But the most bizarre behavior from Chris Brown would have to be when he tweeted his own fan base and demanded they “step it up” and then promptly began to block some of them on Twitter for not buying his album.

His continued display of erratic behavior and questionable troublesome appearance (skinnier face and massive weight loss) have caused many to even question if Breezy is on drugs.

But after a little conversation that I had with a publicist, she made up a good point that I really hadn’t considered which could explain everything. She suggested that she’s heard a few people suggest that Breezy would be getting dropped from his record label. While I initially dismissed it as the typical industry gossip. this became a little more possible considering that Chris Brown hasn’t gone platinum since 2007, with his double platinum album Exclusive.

If this is true, this explains why Chris would go off on his own fan base. Dude is probably stressed and at pivotal point in his career where he needs to sale an amazing amount of records. It looked like he was on the path to do it, but then Nas took away his buzz and knocked him out of the number one spot on the Billboard charts. Chris also dropped like 20 spots down on iTunes, from number one. So what happened on Twitter the other day might have been nothing more than an old fashioned panic attack from an artist who sees a split with his record company coming.

Like I mentioned earlier, this was just small talk with me and a publicist, so this is nothing more than rumors. I’d like to think that Chris is too big of an artist for RCA to give up on so quickly, with a dedicated fan base that can get his sales back on track. And because of Team Breezy, I can’t say I believe this rumor. Either way, if Chris were to ever get dropped, something tells me he’d be picked up by another label in a heartbeat. But with these kind of things, only time can tell.

What do you think?

In related news, reports are saying Chris Brown got into a scuffle with some bodyguards in a club last night. The strangest thing is he was hanging out with known cokehead Paris Hilton. This will not help that pesky drug rumors either Chris. Anyway, here’s what the NY Daily News reports:

A source tells the Daily News the 23-year-old singer got into a heated argument at Gotha Nightclub in Cannes on Wednesday night with club security when he discovered his table wasn’t in the upstairs VIP area.

The eyewitness says as soon as Brown arrived at Gotha with an entourage of about 20 men and 10 women, including girlfriend Karrueche Tran , the scuffle began. The group, led by fellow musician Barry (Mijo) Bradford , walked up the stairs to the VIP area with some “huge bodyguards, and Brown right behind them, thinking that’s where their table would be,” says the insider.

Two security guards belonging to the club, however, blocked them, and Bradford became “angry and started punching and shoving the security. Then Chris and his bodyguards got involved and they were pushing and screaming at each other.”

The eyewitness in the VIP area says extra security was called in and even Paris Hilton’s private security — the heirhead was also partying at Gotha — stepped in to break up the fight. Finally, Brown and Bradford’s group was convinced to go to the table downstairs, where Brown began happily dancing on top of the couch and drinking Champagne straight from the bottle.

    You know what. I’m about to be done with Chris Brown’s a–. Look how disgusting he looks with that damn cigar hanging out of his mouth posing with Paris Hilton. What has he become? He looks terrible and yes, he looks and acts like someone on drugs. It’s probably cocaine or some other kind of PCP drug. That’s why he’s so erratic and angry all the time. And I can see the record label dropping him. It doesn’t matter that he has a big fan base if they don’t buy his albums. Looks like people can’t keep blaming Rihanna for his downfall now can they?

    I know you don’t believe it Amanda but if he hasn’t had a platinum record since 2007, this is probably true. He’s not making enough money for the label to be acting out like this. He’s trouble and he’s not selling. And that’s a terrible combination to a record label in this economy.

    They need to go ahead and drop him and cut their losses. Chris is crashing fast. That’s what happens when everyone around you is an enabler, including your girlfriend.

    Hanging with Paris Hilton will not do anything to subside those drug rumors.

    There is NO WAY C. Breezy is going to get dropped by RCA. They make entirely way too much money with CBreezy. Fortune went Number One. If anything, the media need to get off of his back and let him breathe.

    I don’t believe this. But I am starting to believe that he’s on some kind of drugs. He’s been too bizarre lately.

    Did y’all see his new tweet though? He said if you’re in team breezy and you bought his album, the step it up tweet wasn’t for you. LOL this child is a mess chile. Honestly, I don’t understand how he still has any fans after that. But they probably took that tweet as some kind of apology. SMH he won’t be getting any of my money at this point.

      His fans are sad if they bought into that stupid explanation of his. He basically confirmed what the bloggers said, he tweeted that rude a– tweet to his own fans, and some of them even tweeted back that they couldn’t afford to buy the album. He’s an insensitive little punk and lucky to even have anyone supporting him after all he’s done in the last few years. I wanted to give him a chance, but everything he’s said and done after the Rihanna thing just didn’t sit right with me. And now this and him hanging with Paris Hilton just confirms why I won’t be buying an album now.

    Well if his album is in the process of flopping, he might be getting dropped. Why else would he be so nasty about his album sales on Twitter? What other artist tells their own fan base to “step it up?” He’s needs to grow up and be more mature about his career and his personal life. These Twitter rants make it hard to support him. I really miss the old Chris Brown and I know I haven’t bought an album since.

    I have been done with this little boy for a long time. Just been waiting for the rest of my girls to wake up. He is a joke he is a spoiled brat if Gladis Night wants to slap someones teeth out their mouth it should be this FOOL.
    He thinks he is invincible since he was still alowed to make music after the atrocity he commited against a woman. REGARDLESS of what her wrongs may or may not have been. He sunk to a level of man hood that does not deserve respect or recognition and he has been given it continuously. Hopefully this is the start of the end for him atm because he needs to GO AWAY and get his mind right. MAybe come back when you have actually worked on yourself and grow the F up. What a damaged soul.
