August Alsina might want to shop late at night or use a disguise when in public if he doesn’t like to be bothered. The R&B singer allegedly pulled out a gun on a group of overzealous fans while picking up groceries in California, this as he’s fighting a public battle with liver disease.

TMZ reports:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … August was shopping at Food 4 Less around 9 PM Wednesday in the San Fernando Valley when 3 chicks and a guy hounded him to take pics with them.

We’re told the singer told them he wasn’t feeling well — he’s battling liver disease — but they wouldn’t budge. An employee saw it happening and called cops.

Sources say when August left the store, the group followed him. We’re told August grabbed a gun from his car, slid it down his waistband and showed the butt of the gun as the group approached.

August was long gone by the time cops showed up, but law enforcement sources say cops determined the singer did NOT point the gun at the group or make any verbal threats.

The outlet adds that since it’s all unconfirmed chatter that the Alsina will most likely not face charges. Lucky break for the crooner but maybe flashing the gat isn’t the way to go when you’re a celebrity figure. Get well, August Alsina.
