Chris Brown’s Alleged Victim Speaks Out: ‘I Thought He Was Going to Shoot Me.’
The woman who accused Chris Brown of threatening her with a gun is standing by her side of the story.
Brown’s alleged victim, Baylee Curran claimed Brown suddenly became angry, pointed a gun, and shouted at her to leave the Southern California property on Aug. 30.
“I was just standing over it admiring it. Not touching it … and then one of Chris’s friends says back away from the diamond,” Curran said. “That’s when Chris came in and said ‘I’m so sick of all of you people.’ He took the gun out put it in my face and said ‘get the ‘F’ out.’”
She added, “I didn’t want anything to escalate because, hello, he’s holding a gun to me.”
Curran, terrified that Brown might shoot her, exited the property and sought refuge at a neighboring property. There, the Los Angeles police were called and responding officers arrived at the scene around 3 a.m. While they waited for a warrant to search the Brown’s residence, the singer took to Instagram to declare his innocence.
“Y’all are gonna stop playing me like I’m the villain out here, like I’m going crazy. I’m not,” he said in an uploaded video. “When you get the warrant or whatever you need to do, you can walk right up in here, and you’re going to see nothing—you idiots!”
Once the warrant was served, detectives from the LAPD’s elite Robbery-Homicide Division conducted a search of the property. It is not yet known what items police recovered from inside.
Brown was taken into custody on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. He was released from Los Angeles County jail after posting $250,000 bail and is expected to appear in court on Sept. 20.
Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, called the allegations against his client “demonstrably false” on Twitter.
Curran has recounted Tuesday’s incident in a series of interviews, including with the Los Angeles Times, TMZ, and Entertainment Tonight.
