The controversial R&B star abandoned his long-time bodyguard known as Big Pat in Bermuda after a pit stop on the Caribbean island on Wednesday after they apparently got into a fight on board.
An airport worker explained to The Bermuda Sun newspaper: ‘I’m not sure of the details of what happened on the plane but his plane came in, got services and everything was finishing and they were getting ready to leave.
‘Then there was a stall. The security guard [Big Pat] got off first. He was standing outside talking to the pilot. Then Chris Brown and another guy came off. They had to come inside to Customs.
‘They then went outside to have a cigarette. The security guard came inside [an airport building] and said he wasn’t getting back on the plane.’
The bodyguard told the staff member he had an ‘altercation’ with Chris. Big Pat was forced to take a Jet Blue commercial flight to New York City’s JFK Airport after the furious Don’t Wake Me Up singer jetted off in his private plane.
The 23-year-old singer was travelling back from his gig at the Accra Sports Stadium in Ghana, West Africa on Tuesday.
Big Pat has stuck by Chris through his previous temper tantrums and even took a glass bottle to the head during the star’s club brawl with love rival Drake last June.
Meanwhile Brown was at the centre of another bust up on Wednesday night – after allegedly threatening a valet parker at a Los Angeles bowling alley over the $10 service charge.
TMZ is running a video of the altercation, in which Brown is seen getting irate, saying: ‘Gimme my f*cking keys … f*** ten dollars.’
He then added: ‘Gimme my keys … we gonna turn this whole spot up … I promise you.’
A source close to Brown told the website the singer was annoyed because he was being ‘fleeced’.
Other customers at the PINZ bowling alley in Studio City were only charged $5 and Brown felt he was taken advantage of because of his fame, the insider said, adding it was the ‘principle’ of the matter rather than the money.
The website reports he eventually drove off, but said it was not clear whether he paid the fee or not.
Hours later Chris apparently held up traffic after blocking a lane near La Brea Blvd and Hollywood Blvd with his Dodge Viper car.
According to X17 Online, police approached the vehicle and found it empty. Brown later emerged from the Emerson nightclub and spoke to police who allowed him to drive away without a ticket.
