CHRIS Brown is no stranger to controversy – and he has sparked more outrage after dressing up as a Middle Eastern terrorist.
The singer – who infamously left Rihanna bloodied and bruised after beating her up in 2009 – donned the tasteless get-up for a Halloween party in Los Angeles.
Brown wore a dishdasha robe, a headdress and a belt of bullets draped over his shoulder to attend the bash, hosted by Rihanna.
It is thought the R&B star’s costume was based on the clothing worn by the Taliban.
He posted a picture on his Twitter page featuring the singer and his mates all impersonating religious extremists.
Brown is wearing a long bushy beard and wielding a machine gun in the snap, while his pals are seen similarly equipped with firearms and ammunition.
The chart-topper had removed his fake facial hair before arriving at the Greystone Manor club in Hollywood, adding a Western touch in the form of designer sunglasses.
Brown’s choice of attire has been blasted by disgusted members of the Twitter community.
One wrote: “Just in case you needed another reason to hate Chris Brown, behold his Halloween costume.”
Another tweeted: “Chris Brown and friends dressed as ‘Arab Terrorists’ for Halloween. You guys still like this guy? Really?”
And one user posted: “Just when you thought Chris Brown couldn’t get any worse.”
Despite risking offence with his clobber, Brown appeared to go down a storm with some guests at the shindig.
One scantily-clad mystery woman in particular took a shine to the singer, with Brown responding by giving her several hugs.
His displays of affection came despite reports he’s dating Rihanna again.
Sources claim he ditched model Karrueche Tran to reignite his relationship with the pop superstar.
And far from reacting in disbelief at reports of their reunion, Rihanna’s dad Ronald Fenty has gone public to throw his support behind the couple.
He said: “Whatever makes her happy. I hope one day she will get married. Everyone adores Chris, he’s a super guy.
“The family loved Chris Brown before they met him. I always thought he was extremely talented. He is a good person and always gave me great respect.”
