Texts between Brown and the publicist, Nicole Perna, were released through TMZ today, showing a contentious relationship.
According to the story, the exchange began with a congratulatory text that eventually led to insults. “Loooove all the black pyramid pieces,” she reportedly wrote. “awesome collection.”
However, Brown wasn’t pleased to read that. “I don’t want you texting me compliments with no results,” he wrote back, adding that he wanted coverage from the likes of Vogue. “Get in the game.”
But Perna fired back: “Anna Wintour doesn’t want to f**k with you. These editors don’t want to f**k with you. The majority of my time is spent on damage control. I am constantly cleaning s*** up and having your back.”
Brown’s response? “NICOLE, you texting me as if I will give a f*** if u dont work for me or not … Do whatever makes u feel better. Me personally, I DONT GIVE A F***!!!”
Mike G, the former manager who recently sued Brown for allegedly assaulting him, was also told to fire Perna in the text exchange. “Mike, this bitch got all the balls in the world talking to me but can’t talk to the editors or anyone for that matter when they release bulls*** in the press,” he wrote. “Send this bitch her termination.”
Perna finalized the convo by writing, “Chris, respect. You’re in my prayers x.” To that, Brown replied with an additional insult: “Bitch u in my nightmares.”
The publicist has since resigned.
After the story was published, Brown responded with a lengthy post on Instagram.
“ALL OF THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE CLAIMING TO BE MY ‘TEAM,’ are apart of MIKE Gs TEAM,” he wrote. “they all were fired on different occasions. IMMATURE AAND UNPROFESSIONAL HOW THEY ARE CHOOSING TO HANDLE SHIT. NO FUCKIN NEED FOR ME TO HASH OUT ANY SPECIFIC DETAILS, just know people will run up a check and do no work, or even care, THEN ITS YOUR FAULT WHEN U CALL THEM ON IT OR EVEN ASK???UTA HAS BEEN AMAZING, SO HAS LIVE NATION ALONG WITH RCA, ETC…..”
He continued, adding that he hasn’t been happy with his publicity team.
“I NEVER NEEDED ANYONE FOR MY TALENT,” he wrote. “PR??? PLEASE TELL ME FANS, DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT ‘CHRIS BROWN’ HAS HAD A GOOD PUBLICIST? 👀👀👀👀… IMA GO MUTE ON ALL THIS SHIT.”
Brown also added that the convo that got Perna “fired” also included Mike G and that things will “get pettier.” He also addressed the fact that Suge Knight is suing him for the night he was shot at 1OAK.
“(SHOW THE CONVO THAT GOT HER FIRED, starting with her compliment, )MIKE G WAS ON GROUP TEXT. (PRETTY SURE IT WILL GET PETTIER) y’all have fun wit the bullshit. (THIS IS PLANNED SHIT),” he added. “ON MY DAUGHTER, it is.
