Footage appearing to show Chris Brown and Frank Ocean's entourages brawling in a parking lot has appeared online.

The two singers and their associates reportedly clashed on Sunday (27Jan13) in a dispute over a parking space outside a recording studio in West Hollywood, California.

Police officers were called to the scene, but Brown had reportedly already left by the time they arrived and he has since been named as a suspect in a battery report.

Footage of the alleged altercation at the Westlake Studio has now been posted on, two days after the incident, and the video appears to show two men engaged in a bare-knuckle fist fight surrounded by a group of cheering onlookers.

At one point, an unidentified participant is knocked to the floor, while two men, who look like Brown and Ocean, also appear to grapple with each other.

After the alleged incident, Ocean claimed to have suffered a cut to his hand.

Officers of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department want to question Brown, who is currently on probation stemming from a 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
