Chvrches Says Band is Getting Death Threats After Ripping Chris Brown

Lauren Mayberry went on a long rant before Chvrches kicked off its headlining set Sunday night at the Fortress Festival in Texas … explaining why the band went after Chris in the first place, and why she thinks it's "morally dubious" for musicians to work with artists who have a history of violence.

    • Roberta Maylla you’re probably listening to it right now so tell that bs to someone else

    • +Play Station Chris didn’t do anything, he should not be in jail, but in the past is the past, get over it!!!!

    • +Play Station I don’t have a boyfriend and I am not gay either, the reason why I said its in the past I meant Chris Brown’s past, not yours

    • +Play Station when some random gay calls other gay to defend his+her identity. Haha you funny boygirl 😂😂

    • Shes talking about Chris brown beating the hell out of Rhianna. “Brown was driving a vehicle with Robyn F. as the front passenger on an unknown
      street in Los Angeles. Robyn F. picked up Brown’s cellular phone and observed a
      three-page text message from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship
      with.
      A verbal argument ensued and Brown pulled the vehicle over on an unknown street,
      reached over Robyn F. with his right hand, opened the car door and attempted to force
      her out. Brown was unable to force Robyn F. out of the vehicle because she was
      wearing a seat belt. When he could not force her to exit, he took his right hand and
      shoved her head against the passenger window of the vehicle, causing an
      approximate one-inch raised circular contusion.
      Robyn F. turned to face Brown and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand.
      He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in the face with his right
      hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. The assault caused Robyn F.’s
      mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the
      vehicle.
      Brown looked at Robyn F. and stated, ‘I’m going to beat the sh– out of you when we
      get home! You wait and see!’
      The detective said “Robyn F.” then used her cell phone to call her personal assistant
      Jennifer Rosales, who did not answer.
      Robyn F. pretended to talk to her and stated, ‘I’m on my way home. Make sure the
      police are there when I get there.’ After Robyn F. faked the call, Brown looked at her
      and stated, ‘You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I’m really going to kill you!’
      Brown resumed punching Robyn F. and she interlocked her fingers behind her head
      and brought her elbows forward to protect her face. She then bent over at the waist,
      placing her elbows and face near her lap in [an] attempt to protect her face and head
      from the barrage of punches being levied upon her by Brown.
      Brown continued to punch Robyn F. on her left arm and hand, causing her to suffer a
      contusion on her left triceps (sic) that was approximately two inches in diameter and
      numerous contusions on her left hand. Robyn F. then attempted to send a text message to her other personal assistant,
      Melissa Ford. Brown snatched the cellular telephone out of her hand and threw it out
      of the window onto an unknown street.
      Brown continued driving and Robyn F. observed his cellular telephone sitting in his
      lap. She picked up the cellular telephone with her left hand and before she could make
      a call he placed her in a head lock with his right hand and continued to drive the vehicle
      with his left hand.
      Brown pulled Robyn F. close to him and bit her on her left ear. She was able to feel
      the vehicle swerving from right to left as Brown sped away. He stopped the vehicle in
      front of 333 North June Street and Robyn F. turned off the car, removed the key from
      the ignition and sat on it.
      Brown did not know what she did with the key and began punching her in the face and
      arms. He then placed her in a head lock positioning the front of her throat between his
      bicep and forearm. Brown began applying pressure to Robyn F.’s left and right carotid
      arteries, causing her to be unable to breathe and she began to lose consciousness.
      She reached up with her left hand and began attempting to gouge his eyes in an
      attempt to free herself. Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers and then released
      her. While Brown continued to punch her, she turned around and placed her back
      against the passenger door. She brought her knees to her chest, placed her feet
      against Brown’s body and began pushing him away. Brown continued to punch her on
      the legs and feet, causing several contusions.
      Robyn F. began screaming for help and Brown exited the vehicle and walked away. A
      resident in the neighborhood heard Robyn F.’s plea for help and called 911, causing
      a police response. An investigation was conducted and Robyn F. was issued a
      Domestic Violence Emergency Protective Order.

  1. Watching this video and listening to her voice made me flash back to the eighties when I used to drop lots of acid.

  2. It’s a known thing you don’t poke the bear. Stans will come for you, no matter what your background is

    • Jayden Hunter I don’t even follow dude and know that’s far from his only incident. He was just arrested for rape ffs.

    • Gboy u most likely listen to Elvis, watch or like Jerry Seinfeld & root for Connor McGregor or Cristiano Ronaldo so stfu Trump voter

    • +Samiek Allen don’t forget harvey weinstein rapist asx & all the white ppl that have mistreated blacks for hundreds of years. Hell they still lynching black men in 2019! White ppl hate when you call out they bullshxt smh. Damn devils.

    • +Samiek Allen chris brown stays violently assaulting people ever since thats happened, what tf do u mean research when u didnt even know that much

    • kurwa ashgaming The France stuff was a fake rape hoax to try leeching off his money & the hostage situation was a lie too so his record is fresh

  3. It pisses me off that they’re mad because an artist they support decided to work with an artist they don’t and they speak on it like it’s their business. Stay in ur damn lane

    • It pisses me off how they call out two randoms from a completely different genre and not Dr Luke

    • He beat Rhianna bloody. That’s the problem. “Brown was driving a vehicle with Robyn F. as the front passenger on an unknown

  4. If she had a real concern with Marshmello working with them why didn’t she talk to him personally instead of publicly posting a comment blasting them on a social media site. Did she not realize that both artists and their fans would probably see it and obviously react negatively to her post? Even if her point was valid, maybe next time think before you post, especially if you can’t handle any consequences of doing so.

  5. Lol Chrvches is nothing I only know you cause you were in fifa some time ago u fell off before you got on

  6. the only Chvrches I heard of or want is chicken, I didn’t ask for a tooth fairy to drop names just because your mad that your career is slow as a 🐌!!!!!, 😂😂😂😂😂

  7. Lol well there goes any further opportunities for your business and it’s work with marshmellow

  8. “Chvrches is a business”, glad u admitted it and cleared the air of y’all intentions 😆 …pathetic

    • How is that pathetic? Every single musician including Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Marshmello etc. *IS A BRAND IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY!* They are being managed and controlled by a record label…to produce music and to get money.

  9. Keep your comments to yourself when mentioning other people if you don’t want problems
