A purported domestic abuser, famous, gets in trouble with the law. Soon, police are chasing a white car on TV. No wonder Los Angelenos thought Chris Brown was in this Bentley.
They were having OJ Simpson flashbacks!
Never mind that Brown's girlfriend Rihanna escaped a well-publicized Sunday morning fight with a couple of bruises on her face, while Simpson's alleged victims both died. No, people saw a pricey car with out-of-state plates on the news, heard the driver was wanted for assaulting his girlfriend with a deadly weapon, and that the chase started in Hollywood, and presto: internet rumor that R&B singer Brown was in a televised police chase.
One LA TV station is reporting the driver is this rapper, DJ Khaled, according to LAist. But — whoops — we're pretty sure saying so is how internet rumors spread.
UPDATE:In this episode of MTV's "Cribs," DJ Khaled shows off his cars, including a baby-blue Bentley and, off to the right in this screen cap, what appears to be a white Bentley like the one in the police chase:
Thanks to Hunter Walker for the screencap and all the pointers.
