It just isn’t a good week for Chris Brown. According to reports, the same day Brown was accused of allegedly assaulting a woman, he also received news that Starz was pulling the plug on his guest role on 50 Cent’s show Power.
According to Page Six, on Monday morning, execs put the kibosh on Brown appearing on the show because of his anger issues. Says a source:
Fiddy had promised his friend Brown a major role on his hit Starz show, but network execs put a stop to the plan.
A source close to Brown told us, “50 promised Chris a big role on ‘Power,’ playing a drug dealer. But 50 didn’t consult the network first, and execs were not happy when they found out about it.”
The source continued, “The network insisted that Chris’ casting was not going to happen, because of fears about his anger issues. There was a big blowup, and they had to tell Chris he was not going to get the role. The news was delivered to him early Monday. He was livid.”
Later that evening while entertaining guests at his Tarzana, CA, home, Baylee Curran claims that Brown pointed a gun at her after she was admiring a diamond necklace. On Tuesday, Brown was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and released on $250,000 bond.
Following his arrest, many of Brown’s celebrity friends, including Fiddy, took to social media to defend him, claiming he had been set up. “That’s my boy,” 50 Cent wrote on Instagram. “I watched him come up, a lot of the s - - t he go threw [sic] is crazy to me . . . If someone calls 911 and says you pulled a gun on them in your house, are the police coming to creat [sic] a bunker at the end of your drive way for 11 hours to wait for a search warrant? Then live stream it, This must be VIP Treatment. SMH.”
Reps for Starz didn’t comment, but 50 still insists he’ll get Brown on the show. He told the site, “Tune into ‘Power’ next season, because you will see Chris Brown.”
Jennifer Hudson Is In Fear For Her Life, Gets Order Of Protection Against Ex-Fiancé David Otunga
Jennifer Hudson has been granted a protective order against her former fiancé, David Otunga.
Apparently, after 10 years together, Jennifer and David broke-up for several months ago. However, things turned extremely sour while the pair were trying to work out a custody situation for their 8-year-old son, David Jr. According to the protection order, Jennifer claims the former wrestler exhibited “aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior toward me.” She also says, “I am now living in fear of further action David might take.”
After receiving the order of protection on Thursday, cops showed up to Hudson’s home, that she shared with David, and escorted him out.
Otunga’s attorney vehemently denies any wrongdoing on David’s behalf and claims that Jennifer is using this protection order as a ploy to get the courts to give her primary physical custody of David Jr.
