Calvin Harris and Chris Brown

Calvin Harris says he and Chris Brown are "best mates" now after he posted a tweet accusing the R&B star of stealing his number one single I'm Not Alone.

The misunderstanding was over the similarities between Calvin Harris's 2009 hit and Chris Brown's Yeah 3x.

Calvin Harris tweeted: "Choked on my cornflakes when I heard new Chris Brown single this morning."

He then wrote that he was receiving abusive messages from Chris Brown fans.

"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," he added.

Calvin Harris wrote that he wouldn't take legal action and bowed out of the online row by re-posting the links to his single and Yeah 3x.

The DJ says Chris Brown then got in touch to sort things out.

He said: "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."

Now Calvin Harris says he's become a Chris Brown fan.

He said: "He released Beautiful People and now I just love him 'cos that is a tune. We're fine. We're great. Chris Brown's like my best mate now."
