Monday gossip roundup: A Chris Brown and Frank Ocean rumble!

Chris Brown and Frank Ocean: Not friends.

Chris Brown and Frank Ocean were reportedly at the center of a brawl outside a Los Angeles recording studio early Monday, according to TMZ. The dispute reportedly erupted over a parking spot, with members of both men’s entourages kicking off the fight. Brown, no stranger to brawls, left the scene before police arrived, though Ocean and his team stuck around to give a statement. Because of that, police are classifying Ocean as “the victim,” a law enforcement source tells the Web site. Ocean took to Twitter to address the fight, posting, “got jumped by Chris and a couple guys. I only wish [his dog] Everest was there. Cut my finger now I can’t play with two hands at the Grammys.”

Hollywood has been pretty good to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, but that doesn’t mean they want any of their three children going into the business. “I would do whatever I could to discourage that,” Affleck tells E! News. “My kids have enough issues of being exposed in ways that I don’t want them to be exposed, in magazines and shows and stuff.” But if daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, or 11-month-old son Samuel should show interest in acting? “You know, if you’re interested in drama, there’s great theater classes and stuff and that’s what’s appropriate,” Affeck says.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum is taking to Twitter for some peace of mind during her pregnancy — with some famous friends providing answers. “Ok my fellow preggers ladies, about these hormonal dreams,” Dewan-TAtum, who is expecting her first child with husband Channing Tatum, tweeted. “Is it normal to fly on a magic carpet while presenting at Golden Globes?” Luckily Dewan-Tatum’s pal Evan Rachel Wood, who is also currently pregnant, was online to reassure her. “Totally normal,” Wood wrote. “I floated away while holding on to balloons and yelled at my dentist’s assistant in my dream.”

Tina Turner is ditching her U.S. citizenship and becoming a resident of Switzerland, according to Swiss newspaper Zuerichsee-Zeitung. While the local council where the 73-year-old singer has been living has approved her application for Swiss citizenship, the request still needs to be given the go-ahead by state and federal authorities. “I am very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. I could not imagine a better place to live,” Turner tells German newspaper Blick. Turner has kept her primary home in a suburb of Zurich since the mid-1990s.

In other immigration news, it looks like Canada doesn’t want Randy Quaid hanging around much longer. The troubled actor — who along with his wife, Evi, face felony vandalism charges in Santa Barbara, Calif. — applied for permanent resident status in Canada, but the request has been denied, a Canadian government official confirms to the Washington Times. U.S. officials have not sought the actor’s extradition, but Santa Barbara authorities have made it clear they plan to have the couple arrested if they set foot back on U.S. soil.
