Chris Brown's album defaced in HMV store


MUSIC RETAIL giants HMV have denied having any involvement in the defacing copies of Chris Brown's latest album, which contained a sticker warning fans that the singer 'beats women'.

It has been reported that 'anti-domestic violence campaigners' may have been the ones who added the cautionary label on the front of Fortune, in reference to the star's 2009 arrest for assaulting ex-girlfriend and singer Rihanna.

According to The Huffington PostHMV have proceeded to remove all of the controversial stickers from the album, after a customer snapped a picture of one of the covers at a London store.

The stickers read: "WARNING: Do not buy this album! This man beats women."

Gennaro Castaldo, the head of press & PR for HMV, told The Huffington Post:"Someone went into one of our stores and put the stickers on."

"We spotted and removed them quickly but before we could do so the person circulated a photo to media."

The news comes after Brown was recently forced to deny allegations that his neck tattoo is of a 'beaten up Rihanna'.

A spokesperson for the Don't Wake Me Up singer called the alleged similarities between his tat and Rihanna 'a coincidence', before adding: "It's a random woman."
