Lizzo is facing criticism from fans after a video emerged online in which she approaches Chris Brown for a picture and can be heard telling him that he's her "favourite person in the whole f***ing world."

The Juice singer was performing in Los Angeles as part of The Millennium Tour which has just kicked off again after being put on hold due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic back in 2020.

She posted several pictures of herself with her team dressed head-to-toe in Burberry while backstage, but in one particular video which she did not post, but that emerged on Twitter following the event, Lizzo can be seen approaching Chris Brown for a picture and telling him that he's her "favourite person in the whole f***ing world."

Quickly the video was met with criticism from fans who were disappointed to see Lizzo praising Brown, who has been at the centre of various controversies over the years. Back in 2009 Brown was found guilty of felony assault of his then girlfriend Rihanna, who was since granted a restraining order against him. Then, in 2017 several domestic abuse charities accused Brown of blaming Rihanna for his assault on her.

Meanwhile, in 2017 his then-girlfriend Karrueche Tran was granted a five-year restraining order against the singer after reports that he had harassed and threatened her after he had fathered a child with another woman.

Cosmopolitan UK has reached out to Lizzo's reps for comment.
