Chris Brown Hosts Celebrity Kickball Game in L.A.


This past Saturday was a moment for the stars. Well, urban stars at least. Chris Brown and Diddy’s stepson Quincy Brown – who is the son to ’90s R&B star Al B. Sure! – hosted a day to remember with their Celebrity Kickball Game in L.A.

Featuring an all-star cast including Omarion, Jamie Foxx, Kevin McCall, Keke Palmer, Ne-Yo, The Game, Christina Millian and many more, the competition set friends and family members on opposing sides to see who would claim the victory. With proceeds benefitting Chris’ charity, Symphonic Love, the game was a hit with the Los Angeles community.

Igniting the competitive side in each player and raising temperatures, at the end of the game there could only be one victorious team and that was Breezy’s. Qunicy – whose team included Amber Rose, Keke Palmer, The Game, and Ne-Yo didn’t quite make the cut, but put up a good fight and provided great entertainment for fans.

Ending the game with a performance of his single “Loyal” and appreciation for Team Breezy, this event was surely one everyone enjoyed.
