Warning: some may find these photographs disturbing.
Chris Brown has been photographed by the paparazzi with his hands grabbing the neck of a female friend.
The photos show the 28-year-old choking a distressed-looking woman, who reportedly later smiled once he released his grip.
Chris immediately denied any foul play, posting to Instagram:
'THANKS for all the publicity today. Y'all know damn well I ain't going down that road. There is no need to even defend myself on the matter. Everyone that's around (girl/guy) are my HOMIES. NO FOUL PLAY... NO IGNORANT SH**. END of discussion. LOVE [heart emoji]'.

Chris’s lawyer Mark Geragos, told TMZ that there was nothing ominous about the photos: “She's a friend. It's obviously playful as she confirmed. Whoever invaded their privacy will be held accountable.”
Even if it was just in fact play fighting, it still isn't a good look for Chris Brown due to his former conviction of assault against Rihanna following an argument after a pre-Grammys party.
