Chris Brown continues drinking a mysterious substance out of double-stacked cups, and now close family and friends are extremely concerned for the hip-hop superstar's health and future fatherhood.
But according to 26-year-old Breezy, everyone should just mind their own business - he's not addicted to the popular codeine "street" beverage!
As MstarsNews previously reported, Brown was first allegedly spotted "sipping lean" at rapper pal Tyga's birthday bash for three-year-old son, King Cairo Stevenson. While hanging with a group of friends out in the driveway, the "Loyal" crooner seemed to be partying a bit too hard while young daughter Royalty played inside (view the viral TMZ footage here).
According to Urban Dictionary, here's what "purple drank" truly is:
To create the popular drink originated from Houston Texas, you require the following for the original formula:
-Promethazine w/Codeine VC <- Sizzurp (active ingredient)
-Original Sprite Soda <- Mixing ingredient (although different flavors of sprite are now used, such as sprite remix)
-Jolly rancher candy <- Flavor additive
Put it all in a styrofoam cup and enjoy. The codeine is mainly responsible for the euphoric feeling after drinking lean. Promethazine causes motor skill impairment, lethargy, extreme drowsiness, as well as a disassociative feeling from all other parts of the body, specifically the stomach and digestive system. If it doesn't have promethazine with Codeine, it isn't real sizzurp. The mixed drink combination - known as "lean" - is normally the color purple, due the added ingredient sizzurp, which is originally a dark purple syrup. There are other colors of sizzurp which can be added to create lean, but the purple is the true sizzurp.
And just over the Halloween weekend, Brown took his baby girl to a festive pumpkin patch in LA. While sitting on a bale of hay, he's consuming an unidentified liquid from a pair of Red Solo cups yet again. So, what's up with that?
Well, the "Fine China" singer insists that it's total "bullsh*t" that anyone around him should be so concerned. He's not about to jeopardize his custody agreement with Nia Guzman [again]. He recently denied such seedy allegations on Twitter:
@chrisbrown:"Tmz is about to run a bogus story tomorrow becuz they aren't getting any traffic."
@chrisbrow: "They called my publicist about some bullshit ass story. It's just sad. Now I'm letting y'all know it's bullsh*t!"
For now, he remains focused on the positive:
@chrisbrown: "I got a great album coming, having a great time being a father, and also staying out the way! Ima grown man and I live my life on my terms."
@chrisbrown: "Media is so predictable now... Lol. I'll be sure to send you your personal copy of my album..."
But what do readers actually believe?
