Chris Brown was arrested on Tuesday after a woman claimed the singer pulled a gun on her during a get-together inside his Tarzana mansion. The alleged victim has been identified as 25-year-old Baylee Curran.
Curran called officials around 3 am early Tuesday, claiming her life had been threatened. Officials swarmed Brown’s place and after a 14-hour standoff with police, Brown finally came out of his home and spoke with authorities. He was taken into custody and released on $250,00 bail.
Meanwhile, Curran has been on what appears to be a mini press tour, dishing on what went down the night of the alleged incident.
Curran revealed to Entertainment Tonight exclusively that she initially went over to Breezy’s home to talk about being cast in one of his music videos. Baylee claims she went to the Brown’s home with friends, but things turned after “talking a little business.”
“I went into the backyard and then, when I came back into the house, there was a new male in the home and he was showcasing these diamond bracelets and watches and diamond necklaces,” Curran explained. “At that point, Chris’ friend — and I don’t know who he was to Chris — saw me looking at them and got a little wary, I guess? Sort of cursing and screaming at me and calling me names saying, ‘Get the f**k away from the diamonds. Get the f**k back outside.’”
She continued, “Chris did not see me admiring the jewelry. It was his friends who originally said, ‘Get away’… But then, Chris pulled out his gun and said, ‘Get the f**k out’… like, pointing that way and pointing it in my face and saying, ‘So sick of all you people, I am going to blow your head off.’ I don’t really remember, but he was threatening me with the gun in my face.”
According to Curran, she and her friends made an effort to leave the home, but was asked to sign a nondisclosure agreement before retrieving her cell phone. “I am like, ‘I don’t think so, I am not signing anything.’ So I then took the phone from him and made a run for it,” Curran said. “[Brown’s] two friends were following me down the driveway as I am, like, running down the driveway, and then I turn left on the street. They continued to follow me on foot, and then I run faster so that I can kind of lose them.”
So, who exactly is Baylee Curran? Whelp, here’s what we know.
Former 2016 Miss California: Baylee won 2016 Miss California but was stripped of her title for an unknown reason. The organization released a statement that read: “We would like to make clear Miss Curran is not a reigning title holder. Miss Curran has been dethroned as of July of this year due to a breach of contract. Baylee Curran has been asked numerous times to return her crown/sash, which she has refused to do. We do not condone the alleged actions of Mr. [Chris] Brown or his associates, however, Miss Curran has incorrectly identified herself as Miss California Regional.”
Wanted!: Curran is apparently wanted in connection with a grand larceny case from 2013. According to reports, Curran got into an argument with some friends while they were vacationing at the famous New York City Plaza hotel. Apparently, Curran left the hotel with a woman who had stolen a wallet filled with credit cards and $1,000 in cash from another friend.
Professional Equestrian: She grew up in Norco, Calif., horse country and according to IMDB, is a professional equestrian.
She’s An Actress: According to IMDB, Baylee has starred in several films and TV shows, including Betrayal, Joker Riser and Cold Blooded, which is currently in pre-production.
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
