Chris Brown may have used gay slurs before, but he swears that was in the past. Now he's willing to put up to make a tabloid shut up.

A day after Star magazine reported that Brown spewed homophobic remarks at opposing players during a pickup basketball game, the scandal-scarred singer is sounding off.

And he is ticked.

Brown's rep calls Star's tale, printed in the July 25 issue, utterly false, saying that Brown wasn't even playing basketball on the day the magazine claims.

"A totally fictitious article ran in the current Star magazine accusing our client Chris Brown of doing something that he did not do," says Brown's rep of the story appearing in the July 25 issue that was reported online Wednesday by the tab's sister site, Radar Online.

"He got really ticked off when things didn't go his way during the game, saying, 'That's gay!' and ‘You're a f-----t a--!' to the other players," the magazine quotes an unnamed "eyewitness." The article features a photo of Brown confronting another player.

So what's Brown's side of the story?

"He spent the entire day with dozens of members of the production team filming the video for 'Body to Body' at 1870 Sunset Paza in West Hollywood. The Star accompanied the fabricated story with a photo of Chris playing basketball in New York that was taken on the day of his F.A.M.E. CD release in March," his rep adds.

"Chris Brown's management is considering taking appropriate legal action against the paper. Unfortunately this bogus account is being picked up by additional media outlets. We stand behind our client and want to set the record straight that this did not happen."

So there.
