Everyone has to start off somewhere, and some of the biggest stars we’re into now were scraping and fighting for roles and big opportunities back in the day. Here is a list of 15 famous folks who had small roles in some of your favorite shows and movies, and you didn’t even notice (cause they weren’t famous yet of course).

“Miss Me With The Bulls**t!”: Chris Brown Shot At During Pre-VMA Party; Suge Knight Shot Multiple Times

While celebrities currently hit the red carpet to prepare for tonight’s VMAs, the pre-VMA festivities got very scary early this morning as a party Chris Brown was hosting at 10ak became a scene of violence.

According to reports, gunshots were fired at 1:35 a.m. in the West Hollywood nightclub and Suge Knight was shot multiple times in the melee. TMZ reports that Knight was shot six times, according to his family members, but other reports claim he took two bullets. He was rushed to the hospital, was taken to surgery and is in intensive care. Crazy thing is, despite being shot in the stomach and arm, Knight was reportedly able to walk out of the club on his own. This isn’t the first time Knight was shot at during a pre-VMA shindig. Back in 2005 he was shot in the leg at a party Kanye West was throwing in Miami.

As for Brown, after the gunshots were fired, his security rushed him out of the club. Witnesses who were inside the club took to social media to say that shots were fired Brown’s way. Thankfully, he’s okay. The singer took to Twitter earlier today to express his disappointment in the way things turned out.

“It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bulls**t!!!”

According to the Washington Post, aside from Knight, three other individuals were hit but there were no “life-threatening injuries.” Some think the shooting may have had something to do with a gang rivalry as Brown likes to rep Bloods from time to time, and Knight is reportedly affiliated with the gang.

When you’re famous and your ex is too, it’s inevitable that you’d run into each other on occasion. And that certainly seems to be the case with Chris Brown and Rihanna. Not only were the two in the same vicinity during his welcome home party a few months ago; yesterday, at Roc Nation’s charity basketball game Chris volunteered his time on the court while Rihanna sat in the front row.

So naturally, they were in close contact with one another.

And the images are priceless, Rih Rih is looking through Chris like he was made of glass.

What do you think was going through Rihanna’s mind in this photo?

‘Need To Have This Baby And Stop Playing:’ Chris Brown Praises Karrueche For ‘Putting Up With’ His ‘Sh*t’ For The Past 5 Years

What was apparently supposed to be a sweet Woman Crush Wednesday post served as a sad reminder of the spectacle that is Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran’s tumultuous relationship. Earlier this week, we told you that the tabloid couple had reconciled after their latest breakup, which made headlines when Chris took one of her friends on vacation to St. Tropez.

Yesterday, Chris decided to acknowledge his on-again, off-again lover for social media’s beloved Woman Crush Wednesday with a post that praised her for sticking around despite all of the nonsense he put her though during the past five years.

“@karrueche damn near 5 years and this woman still putting up with my sh*t. Need to have this baby and stop playing! Lol! My WCW.”

Lately, I’ve been trying to refrain from offering my unsolicited opinion on people’s love lives, but this kind of post would probably have me somewhere stressed if I were Karrueche. Five years in and  it appears that Chris still hasn’t learned how to treat one of the few people who always seems to be in his corner. But as Karrueche stated earlier this week in her Man Crush Monday post, their love isn’t for anyone to understand.

“Lovers.. Friends.. We love, we laugh, we fight,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “It’s complicated and I can’t explain it but it’s not for you to understand but us .. My MCM ❤️”

For everyone’s sake, let’s hope that Chris has changed since their last breakup; however, the chances of that seem unlikely.

Karrueche Tran Defends Chris Brown Reunion: ‘It’s Complicated And I Can’t Explain It’

Yesterday, we told you that Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran had reconciled (just like every knew they would) after their most recent split. As you may recall, there were reports that Chris added insult to injury by taking one of Karrueche’s friends to St. Tropez after their split, which left many wondering exactly how bad would things have to get before she decided to leave him alone for good. In what appeared to be an attempt to indirectly respond to critics, Karrueche made Chris her Man Crush Monday and of course, defended their relationship.

“Lovers.. Friends.. We love, we laugh, we fight,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “It’s complicated and I can’t explain it but it’s not for you to understand but us .. My MCM ❤️”

Sources close to the “Love More” singer are also denying that he did anything wrong with Karrueche’s friend during their brief breakup, TMZ reports. They went on to say that he called Karrueche off the hook to plead his innocence and deny sleeping with said friend, but she ignored his calls. Then, she showed up on the day of the flag football game to talk things out, which is where they made up. Since reconciling, sources say Chris has promised to treat her better and slow down on the partying.

Only time will tell if he actually keeps his word, but something tells me this probably isn’t the first time Karrueche has heard Chris make promises like this before.

[Watch] Chris Brown And Karrueche Tran Apparently Back Together

It’s probably safe to say that Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran will NEVER leave each other alone permanently—at least not in the near future. For weeks, the on-again, off-again couple have been making headlines regarding their latest breakup, which some sources claim was initiated by Chris, while others say it was Karrueche’s idea. There were even rumors that Chris took Karrueche’s friend to St. Tropez to spite her after they broke up, which seems like a pretty foul move and a dealbreaker even for the most dysfunctional of couples. However, the point of no return in Chris and Karrueche’s relationship seems to be nonexistent.

Over the weekend, the troubled duo were photographed together at a charity flag football game and appeared to be quite cozy and happy. According to E! Online, the stylist cheered her boo on from the sidelines as he participated in the game. Of course, no one really believed that things were over for good between these two.

“It’s going to go back and forth,” a source told E! Online. “Ultimately, they’re just kids.”

Chris also took a selfie with his ladylove and shared it on Instagram, which prompted fans to sound off, either expressing their approval or disapproval of the reunion.

“Just marry her already @chrisbrownofficial settle down. She’s the one for you. @karrueche,” expressed one fan.

“Chris……… A real, good woman doesn’t come so easy… So, don’t let go… My Respects for Both… #TeamKarrueche,” another chimed in.

TMZ also captured footage of the lovebirds leaving the game together and the PDA continued.

Chris Brown Teasing A Tour With Trigga?

"Chris Brown and Trey Songz pf"

WENN

Chris Brown may very well be the most talked about talent in hip-hop and R&B right now. He’ s passing drug tests, partying with the Kardashians and just dropped a hot video for the single “Flame” featuring Usher and Rick Ross.

Among everything he already has to celebrate, he may be soon popping and locking in a town near you as he recently teased a tour with the often baby oiled and always baby faced, Trey Songz.

The two sex symbols allowed their fans to eavesdrop on their Instagram conversation yesterday as they toyed around with the idea of hitting the road together soon.

Taking a creative approach to the announcement, the two Virginia natives shared a chat via Instagram that seem to leak from their inboxes. The two engaged in what appeared to be a private conversation as Trey proposed the idea of a tour and Chris responded that the idea was so crazy, it may just work. Along with a tour, the two apparently are linking up in the studio so they can make music and unite their panty-dropping powers. Later in the day the two confirmed that tour talks are definitely in the works although they have yet to decide on a name. They are inviting fans to help decide.

Oh lawd, I can only imagine: “The Pop Lockin’ and Panty Droppin’ Tour”? “Guns and Graffitti”?  These venues are probably going to smell like thigh sweat, Chanel No. 5 and thirst. But I bet it will be one hot tour. Check out Chris’s new vid for Flames below:

‘Chris Ended It With Her:’ Sources Say Chris Brown Initiated Latest Split From Karrueche Tran

Chris and Karrueche have broken up again and naturally, there are several theories floating around regarding what caused their latest split. Initially, there were rumors that the stylist broke up with Chris and changed her phone number after he liked two of Rihanna’s photos on Instagram. Now, sources claiming to be from Chris’ camp are slamming Karrueche and insisting that he’s the one who called things off.

The insider told TMZ that Karrueche leaked the story that she broke up with him and that this couldn’t be further from the truth. Instead, the source alleges that he cut her off because he discovered that she’d been sending inappropriate text messages and photos to other guys during their relationship.

At the same time, a source claiming to be close to Karrueche spoke to E! Online. The source did corroborate the story that Chris is the one who initiated the breakup after the former couple got into an argument. However, they did not specify what the argument was about.

“She hasn’t spoken to him in two weeks. She just needed a break to focus on herself. It’s not that they don’t care for one another,” the insider said.

“She’s taking time to spend with her family and focus on her career. She’s just been pursuing that part of her life.”

An additional source also spoke to the entertainment site and refuted rumors that there has been infidelity in the relationship.

“There’s never been a case of infidelity.”

At this point, we’re not really sure what to believe, but we’re guessing that this breakup won’t last long.

“Made A Lot Of Mistakes”: Chris Brown Reflects On Recent Legal Troubles, Says He’s Ready To Move Forward

Since Chris Brown was released from jail on June 2, we’ve seen him make up and break up with Karrueche Tran, drop some new music, gain a few pounds (that if you ask me, looks great on him), perform at the BET Awards, vacay in St. Tropez, and drop all drama with former foe Drake. But aside from all that, we’ve heard very little from Brown about his thoughts on his time behind bars and how he feels now that he’s out. He decided to have a reflective moment over the weekend when he shared his thoughts on the “mistakes” he’s made on Instagram. Brown says he’s grateful for the tough moments. He started off his statements by posting the picture below, and captioning it with this:

“I been through a lot in my life. Made a lot of mistakes along the way. But through it all I’ve always been true to myself and through God I’ve been able to take care of my family! I should regret some things but I think the lessons learned will shape me into a real man. I’m grateful and appreciative! Thank you for life!”

We’re all just hoping he’s left that past behavior behind and will focus on his music from now on. He has way too much talent to let it be clouded by foolishness.
