was reported breeding and selling puppies for profit, prompting animal rights activists to voice their protests. But Brown's representative denied that it was a business, saying the singer sold the seven pitbull pups so that they can find good homes.

Brown's mother/manager Joyce Hawkins posted a link on her Twitter on Monday, April 23 of CB Breeds. On the website, Brown's photos holding newborn puppies were featured along with the offer to buy them for $1,000 a pup. "CHRIS BROWN PUPPIES FOR SALE," Hawkins tweeted.

PETA quickly criticized Brown's decision to breed dogs while there are a lot of them in pounds ready to be adopted. "There is no such thing as a responsible breeder while wonderful dogs are being put down in animal shelters across the country for lack of a good home. This is a moneymaking scheme, and Brown will count the suckers who fall for it as he counts the money on the way to the bank," PETA told E! News in a statement. "Shelters will count the bodies in the barrel. As , and Rocsi Diaz say, 'Adopt, never buy'."

A publicist for Brown later released a statement to straighten things up, saying the puppies were part of a litter birthed by his family's dogs back home in Virginia. "He loves animals, especially dogs," said the rep.
