Report: Chris Brown’s Manager Triggered Fight

Manager Tina Davis, Chris Brown, and his mother Joyce Hawkins

Chris Brown’s manager is reportedly the mystery woman who triggered the fight between Brown and Rihanna.

TMZ is reporting that Tina Davis left the three-page text message on the 19-year-old singer’s cell phone shortly before his altercation with Rihanna. Davis, 39, was rumored to have had a relationship with Brown when he was 16.

The former Sr. Vice President of A&R at Def Jam/Def Soul left the company to manage Brown. There had been whispers that the two were romantically involved, even prompting a statement in 2007: “Chris Brown and his manager, Tina Davis, have a strictly professional relationship.”

The text message to Brown reportedly talked about hooking up later, which resulted in Rihanna slapping him before he allegedly assaulted her.

The detective’s affidavit refers to the text message as being “from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with.”
