Chris Brown Avoids Fight with Migos
After the BET Awards last night, Chris Brown’s people got into a fight with Migos. I guess they crossed paths at an after party, and someone in Chris’ camp pushed Quavo… so they got into a fight but Chris kept walking… and then Migos and some of their camp followed Chris to his car and surrounded him. TMZ says that Chris left without anyone getting hurt but there were some intense moments. Maybe the kid is growing up.
