Baylee Curran gave an interview to E! News to break her silence following Brown's arrest at the weekend, for allegedly pointing a gun at her during a house party.
Baylee Curran, the former beauty pageant contestant at the centre of the current Chris Brown arrest that went down last weekend, has spoken out for the first time since the story broke.
The headline-grabbing story started when 27 year old Brown was arrested on Sunday (August 28th) after Curran claimed he had threatened her with a gun during a party at his house that evening. He was eventually charged on Tuesday for assault with a deadly weapon.
However, Brown was later released on a $250,000 bond, with his legal team vehemently denying the charges. His lawyer, Mark Geragos, tweeted: “Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes. Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false #TeamBreezy.”

Curran, 24, says she wants to put her side of the story across given the negative attention she’s been getting from Brown’s fans over the last few days. Speaking to E! News on Thursday (September 1st), she said she has hung out with the singer “several times before” and that this incident came from nowhere.
According to her, she was admiring some jewellery that was on display for the party’s guests when Brown suddenly: “just said, 'I am so sick of you people', took out his gun and said, 'get the F out. I'm going to blow your head off.”
Asked whether Brown’s finger was actually on the trigger, she said: “I do believe so, that's what made me think he was going to shoot,” and emphasised the gun was pointed at her face.
Curran also denied rumours that she was friends with Brown’s ex and mother of his daughter, Nia Guzman, explaining, “I have no idea” how that rumour began. “There is many false accusations happening at the moment.”
Furthermore, she denied all the speculation that she made the story up for publicity. “I don't understand why he's the victim now. Obviously he has a lot of support, a lot of fans who are going to back him up. I'm just some random girl that wants to be in the limelight. Although if I wanted the limelight in fame, I wouldn't have done it this way.”

“Situations happen like this every day and people feel like they cannot come out with their story and they can't stand up for themselves and they can't protect themselves and I feel like if I do this, maybe I can be a role model for the individuals who unfortunately have been through a situation like this before. And I just want people to know they can stand up for themselves.”
She also urged that Brown should just fess up, because his fans would be forgiving in any case. “I would just tell him, he very well knows what he's done. Come out with the truth, and his fans are very forgiving and very supportive. I'm sure they will forgive him for this, but it's not fair for him to make himself the victim when I had a gun to my face.”
