UPDATE 1/2/2016 10:18 PM: Chris Brown has responded to the allegations through an Instagram post, which has now been deleted. DJ Akademiks grabbed the video where Brown says Gutierrez is trying to get a check. He then says she probably came into his room and was "too ugly to get in."

UPDATE 1/2/2016 8:14 PM: Chris Brown's team has released a statement on this matter. They stated that the woman named Liziane Gutierrez fabricated the whole altercation and it is simply not true. She could be notoriously known for this kind of behavior, as a rep for Brown claims she is the same person who caused some drama for Jason Derulo a few months ago. Read it in full below.

Making false accusations seems to be a pattern of behavior for Ms. Gutierrez. Whatever her motives, her statements are unequivocally untrue.

Ms. Gutierrez was escorted out of the private after party at the Palms Casino Resort for being disruptive and out of control. Once she was in the hallway, while waiting for Chris Brown's security to bring out her phone, she had a total meltdown-throwing her purse to the ground and claiming that she "could buy everyone in the hotel"-as witnessed by numerous people waiting to get into the party. The Palms Casino Resort security also saw her wild behavior via hotel security cameras and immediately came up to the hallway to escort her out of the hotel.

Her claim that she had her phone in her possession inside the after party and was able to take a photo causing an altercation with Chris Brown is a complete fabrication. I'm not sure what mood altering substances Ms. Gutierrez was on but her statements are completely false and not based in reality. This seems like a clear case of retaliation for her bruised ego.

TMZ is reporting that Chris Brown is currently under investigation for battery after allegedly punching a woman in the face in Las Vegas. The woman reportedly was invited to a private party hosted in Brown's suite at the Palms Hotel held sometime after he had performed at Drai's night club. After taking a picture of the singer with her cell phone, Brown reportedly grew upset, began yelling at her and allegedly punched her one time in the right eye. 

After leaving the party, the woman called the police who informed TMZ that they are looking into the incident and are treating Brown as a suspect.
