Calvin Harris and Chris Brown have patched up their differences, after Harris accused Brown of stealing his song ‘I’m Not Alone’ on his own single, ‘Yeah 3x’. Harris suffered a torrent of abuse from Brown fans after he tweeted: “Choked on my cornflakes when I heard new Chris Brown single this morning. [Just] because Chris Brown is an international celebrity doesn’t make it OK to rip off a guy from UK not many people have heard of”.

The incident even made it into the prestigious CMU Beef Of The Week column. But it’s all water under the bridge now, as Brown gave Harris half of the royalties from the track. Harris revealed to BBC Newsbeat this week: “He phoned me up. He was gutted about the whole situation. Once he heard the original he was like: ‘Wow. OK”, and sorted it out. He gave me half that track … We’re fine. We’re great. Chris Brown’s like my best mate now”.

Harris isn’t the only person to try to patch things up with Brown. Let’s all watch Fox News presenter Andy Levy’s ‘apology’ one more time.
