Less than 24 hours after Chris Brown turned himself in to L.A. police, the singer is already seeing his endorsement deals go down the drain – at least temporarily.

Wrigley tells Extra they have suspended the gum commercials Chris stars in, after the alleged domestic incident early Sunday morning that resulted in an unidentified female calling 9-1-1. Chris and girlfriend Rihanna had attended a pre-Grammy party at Clive Davis' earlier that evening.

"Wrigley is concerned by the serious allegations made against Chris Brown," the statement reads. "We believe Mr. Brown should be afforded the same due process as any citizen. However, we have made the decision to suspend the current advertising featuring Brown and any related marketing communications until the matter is resolved."
