Chris Brown is totally starting off 2016 with a fresh outlook and abandoning old bad behaviors. Just kidding! The troubled singer is reportedly under investigation for assaulting a woman at a party at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas after she tried to take a picture of him with her phone, the woman in question alleges.

"The victim was alleged to have been battered by Brown, who at the same time took her cell phone. A crime report has been taken for misdemeanor theft and misdemeanor battery listing Mr. Brown as a suspect," a police statement reads. Brown's camp, though, is having none of it, telling E! News that the woman began making "false accusations" after being kicked out of the party "for being disruptive and out of control."

"Once she was in the hallway, while waiting for Chris Brown's security to bring out her phone, she had a total meltdown, throwing her purse to the ground and claiming that she 'could buy everyone in the hotel," his rep says. "The Palms Casino Resort security also saw her wild behavior via hotel security cameras and immediately came up to the hallway to escort her out of the hotel." Sounds like a fun party.
