Video has surfaced of Chris Brown stomping on a man's head in a nightclub in Cannes, France, but the singer claims he was the victim of an assault and only defending himself.

The incident reportedly went down on May 18. Chris was at the venue to perform when a fight briefly broke out. TMZ obtained video of the scuffle and it shows CB angrily stomping downward appearing to connect with the back of a man's head as he steps onto the stage.

The man who caught the bottom of Brown's sneaker was Malek Mokrani, who was there to see the show. He later went to the hospital with neck and head pain. He plans on filing a police report against the singer.

In an Instagram video that has since been deleted, Brown admits that his people took physical action in the club, but claims there were no fans involved in the dust up. “No fans were hurt by Chris Brown; no fans were beat up by Chris Brown,” he said in a video response.

He explained his side of the story further, saying he was only defending himself against an attack by security. “I met the owner, shook his hand. We were partying and everything else," he explained. "His staff though, security, I don’t think he probably knew who I was. I don’t care but he assaulted me. Grabbed his hand around my throat and tried to push me out the spot when we were walking. My security was already advancing to another spot so we handled the situation accordingly and moved on.”

He added “Stop lying to people, saying we beating up fans, ‘cause I don’t do that."

As of press time, no charges have been filed.
