Chris Brown denies using "I won't beat you" chat-up line
Chris Brown has denied that he attempted to chat up a woman by saying, "Can I get your number? I promise I won't beat you."
Us Weekly said that a woman had told the magazine that Brown had approached her in February and said the line, before being dismissed.
However, Brown has issued a statement directly to TMZ to state that it is not true.
He said: "That is absurd and absolutely not true. I did not say that nor would I joke about that."
As previously reported, Grammy bosses were forced to defend Brown's appearance at this year's ceremony, due to his cheuqered past - however, they said that his music had been so popular over the last year that it made sense for him to be invited.
