Police responded to Chris Brown's home on Monday after they received a call about a domestic violence situation that turned out to be false.
The Los Angeles Times reports police were contacted shortly before 5 p.m. about a domestic violence incident. The Los Angeles Police Department said the caller told police he wasn't sure if his mother had been shot, according to the paper.
When police arrived, members of Brown's staff were at the home, but the singer wasn't.
Police searched the home and didn't find any problems.
It's the latest so-called "swatting" prank targeting celebrities. The practice is intended to get multiple officers, including specialized SWAT teams sent to a home.
Last month, police arrested a juvenile they say is responsible for making the prank calls that reported violence at Bieber and Kutcher's homes.
