The woman who accused Chris Brown of pointing a gun at her may have been working to set him up. Miss California Regional 2016, Baylee Curran, allegedly sent a text message to a friend vowing to get revenge on Brown for kicking her out of his house.
Curran claimed Brown pulled out a weapon when he saw her getting to close to a diamond cross necklace he owns. “Chris came in, pulled out his gun and said, ‘I’m getting so sick of you people,’ pointed the gun at me, [and told me] to get the ‘F’ out of the house,'” she told US Weekly. After a 14 hour standoff with police, Brown was later arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, and was eventually released on $250,000 bail.
Now his lawyer is working to verify the text message Curran allegedly sent to her friend Safari. It reads, “Hey safari don’t you know this freak Chris brown is kicking me out of his house because I called his friend jewelry fake can you come get me my Uber is messing up if not 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. Lol come get me.”
Safari texted her back, writing, “Really that’s f— up you ain’t going to do that your wrong if you do” (via TMZ).
As TMZ points out, the text message Curran allegedly sent Safari contains information he couldn’t have possibly have known. Curran contacted another friend to pick her up when the Lyft she ordered drove off after not seeing her because she was hiding under her car at the time. Curran mentions that—”Uber is messing up”—but Safari wouldn’t have known that to fabricate it. According to TMZ, though, Safari claimed Curran stole his Rolex last year and they haven’t spoken since, which does make it strange that she reached out to him in that moment.
