Chris Brown's rep has issued a statement in connection with an incident that reportedly took place between the singer and another individual in Las Vegas on May 4.

As previously reported, Brown was identified as the individual who allegedly assaulted another adult male during a basketball game at Palms Casino Resort, according to the Las Vegas police. The man was treated for non-life threatening injuries, which were sustained after a verbal spat led to a physical fight. In a press release, the LVMPD noted that Brown wasn't the only man who assaulted the victim.

Brown's rep has since commented on the allegation.

"Chris is currently in Las Vegas as he is performing at Drai's on May 5th and receiving a Key to the Strip that day as well," his rep said in a statement to CNN. "He has a suite at the hotel that has a basketball court and invited friends to come play. An unruly individual showed up uninvited and was removed from the premises. Chris was not in an altercation with this person."
