Did Chris Brown Lash Out at Baylee Curran After Losing TV Role? Plus, What His Lawyer Is Saying About the Case
Were Chris Brown's assault allegations sparked by outrage after losing a new TV role?
Page Six claims he lashed out at aspiring actress Baylee Curran after learning he had been axed from a guest role on 50 Cent's show “Power,” but sources close to 50 and Starz tell “Extra” that nothing had been confirmed and that they would still want Chris on the show.
“Extra” sat down with Baylee earlier this week to talk about the incident at Brown's home, and she insisted she was frightened for her life when the musician allegedly pulled a gun on her while she was looking at some jewelry, and that she would never make up something like this.
“For a minute I thought, 'Yeah, yep this is it, he's gonna shoot me,'” she said, later adding, “I would never lie… why? For what? If I was doing this for fame… or something of that sort... why would I do it this way?" Watch the video for her account of what happened.
Now, Brown's attorney is speaking out against the beauty queen. Lawyer Mark Geragos held a press conference in L.A. saying the LAPD found no evidence of Curran's claims, and stated there may be text messages from Baylee trying to set Chris up.
He insisted on his client's innocence “based on the witnesses that we've interviewed, based on the client statements, and based on the fact that there was no gun found in the house, based on the fact that there was no jewelry found in the house that matched what she described, based on the fact that if it ends up being true that there is a text there that says… 'This MF is going to go down and I'm going to set him up and say he was going to shoot me.'”
Geragos added, “I know some people find it hard to believe that people in this day and age may lie for certain ulterior motives.”
Brown, who was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, has maintained he is innocent. He is currently out on $250,000 bail.
