As you’ve probably heard by now, Chris Brown was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon after a bizarre stand-off with police last week.
The incident occurred after a model named Baylee Curran claimed Brown pulled a gun on her during a gathering at his home.
Brown has maintained his innocence from the start, but given his long history of violent, erratic behavior, it’s not hard to see why so many are skeptical of his claims.
In an exclusive clip provided to Good Morning America, the troubled singer and his lawyers claim that they’re in possession of evidence which will conclusively clear Brown’s name and restore his reputation (such as it is).
The pre-taped segment aired this morning:
Brown tells the morning show that his lawyers have obtained a text message that proves Curran attempted to frame him, adding that if any charges are going to be pressed, they’ll be against Curran for providing false testimony to police.
“I cannot wait until the truth comes to light about this incident,” Brown says in the clip above.
“My character’s been defaced, and who I am as a person, and my integrity.”
“All my real supporters know me and know the truth.”
According to Brown’s attorneys, the incriminating text from Curran reads:
“This freak Chris Brown is kicking me out of his house because I called his friend’s jewelry fake.
“I’m going to set him up and call the cops and say that he tried to shoot me and that will teach him a lesson. I’m going to set his Ass up.”
If the text is legit, it’s pretty damning.
It could also be taken as an indication that Curran is some sort of Bond villain, because, really – who lays out their evil plans like that?
In the GMA segment, Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, adds that the gun and piece of jewelry Curran described were not found in the home.
In addition, he claims that surveillance camera footage from the day of the incident will reveal that at no time did Brown produce a weapon or physically threaten Curran in any way.
So is it possible that Brown’s telling the truth about this situation?
But Breezy being Breezy, in the court of public opinion, he’ll always be guilty until proven innocent.
Brown is currently out on bail and awaiting trial.
It’s a process the singer is all too familiar with.
