Chris Brown has hit out at claims he’s addicted to sizzurp, a beverage that is said to get people high, made of prescription cough medicine, soft drinks and hard candy to sweeten the taste.

The singer has reportedly left his friends extremely concerned after he allegedly starting taking it around his daughter Royalty.

The star was seen at a pumpkin patch in Los Angeles with his daughter and some friends at the weekend and was seen carrying a double paper cup around with him, which sources say contained the drink.


He shared a picture on Instagram in which he can be seen sitting on a hay bale with his pals with the cup at his feet.

He was also seen drinking from a similar double cup at a birthday party for rapper Tyga’s son last month.

People who drink sizzurp are said to double-up two cups before pouring it in as it adds extra insulation and stops the ice in the mixture from melting too quickly as the drink is so strong they have to sip it over a long period of time.


Chris’s loved ones are apparently worried he will lose custody of Royalty, who he shares with his ex Nia Guzman, as his use of the drink has allegedly spiralled out of control in recent weeks.

The star tested positive for codeine – an ingredient in the cough medicine in sizzurp – earlier this year during the custody battle for his daughter but the judge disregarded the result as he had a prescription.

The drink can be extremely dangerous, especially when mixed with alcohol and other drugs, and has been known to cause seizures, heart attacks and death.

However, Chris has hit out at the claims he is addicted to sizzurp, tweeting: “TMZ is about to run a bogus story tomorrow becuz they aren’t getting any traffic.

“They called my publicist about some bullst ass story. It’s just sad. Now I’m letting y’all know it’s bullst!

“I got a great album coming, having a great time being a father, and also staying out the way! Ima grown man and I live my life on my terms.”
