Selena Gomez Caught Sneering at Chris Brown's Nomination for Best R&B

Chris Brown, known for his violent relationships - especially with the Barbadian R&B star Rihanna whom he dated for couple of years between 2007 to 2009 - was nominated for Best R&B during the 2023 VMAs. However, when his name was called, “Only Murders in the Building” star Selena Gomez was caught on camera sneering in disappointment.

Brown was nominated for “How Does It Feel,” his collaboration with Chlöe. Right as Brown’s name was mentioned by the announcer, Gomez’s face shifted from a neutrally pleasant smile to an ugly grin of discontent.

Gomez has never publicly said anything negative about Brown. But the singer, songwriter and rapper is widely critized for his bad temper, especially against women

In 2009, Brown pled guilty to felony domestic assault charges for an incident with his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. That led to a sentencing of community labor, five years of probation and domestic violence counseling for Brown.

The restraining order Rihanna had against Brown was later modified at the request of both of their lawyers in 2011. Under the updated “level one order,” both singers are allowed to appear at awards shows together.

That’s far from the only legal issue Brown has faced. Over the years, Brown has been part of a fight with Drake and his entourage, an altercation with Frank Ocean over a parking spot, an alleged hit and run, a misdemeanor assault for punching a fan and was put in jail for violating his probation. And then there was the civil assault case last year.

In 2022, a woman filed a suit against Brown, accusing him of drugging and raping her at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Miami Beach home in 2020. The woman sought $20 million in the case, which was ultimately dropped due to lack of prosecution. Brown has denied all allegations against him.

Few months ago, complained that people ‘still hate’ him for assaulting Rihanna and he went on saying that he wants people to kiss his “f–king ass” if they “still hate” him for his “mistake” of assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
