In a crazy turn of events TMZ's reporting the recent break-in at Chris Brown's crib in the Valley, may be connected to the promoter that hired him for a recent appearance.

As previously reported, Breezy home was robbed by 3 armed men.  They not only ransacked his house, but held his aunt hostage at gunpoint and made of with several thousand in money and goods.  Before locking the singers aunt in a closet, they told her they knew it was his house.

Now it's being reported the robbers may have gotten a tip from a nightclub promoter.  In the course of the ongoing investigation law enforcement sources told TMZ, the three suspects were told the singer was paid $50,000 in cash for a recent appearance and had the money in the house.

Ironically Breezy's aunt told police before the robbers locked her in the closet, they mentioned the were there for the money.  TMZ reports cops believe the gunman followed Chris to his Hollywood gig and once they knew where he was, doubled back to robbed his house.

That's about all we know in the way of new details.  As always I'll bring you the tea as I get it!  In the meantime, LISTEN LIVE to Tha Wire on The People's Station 107 Jamz.
