Chris Brown made TMZ look real petty last night on Twitter.

In a series of tweets, Brown informed his fans and supporters that TMZ was going to be putting out a “bogus” story about him today in order to get traffic to their website.

And indeed today, TMZ reported on a story about Chris’ family and friends being concerned that he is becoming addicted to lean.

In the report, TMZ says sources tell them Chris’ peeps are worried because he’s drinking sizzurp around his daughter Royalty, and they’re worried he’ll lose custody.

In TMZ’s defense, Chris did post a photo this weekend with friends at a pumpkin patch in L.A. and in the pic he’s sitting on a bale of hay with a double cup sitting at his feet. Chris supposedly took Royalty to the pumpkin patch to buy a pumpkin and decided to bring his crew along.

And weeks ago at Tyga’s son King Cairo’s birthday party, Chris was caught on film sipping out of a double cup while riding a bike. Another guy in the video was seen walking around the kid’s party with a prescription bottle in his hand.

Despite TMZ’s desperation to get clicks, Chris may have a thing for the lean and isn’t willing to admit to it.
