Woman who accused Chris Brown of pointing gun at her denies ‘romantic feelings’ for singer amid claims that paint her as obsessive kleptomaniac
The woman alleging Chris Brown pointed a gun at her Tuesday is denying a claim she’s been infatuated with the singer for years.
“Never been obsessed with him,” Baylee Curran told the Daily News in a text message Thursday.
“Never romantic feelings!” she claimed.
The 24-year-old model was responding to allegations by former friend Angel Monroe that Curran has been fixated on the singer as far back as the Billboard Music Awards in 2012, when the two women met him on the red carpet.
“She was obsessed with Chris Brown,” Monroe, a model and musician, told The News Thursday.
An old Twitter post from a day before the awards show suggests Curran was angling to spend time with the Grammy winner.
“Hope to run into you,” Curran tweeted at Brown on May 19, 2012.
“Congrats!! And good seeing you today even if just for a sec:) see you tonight,” she wrote in a follow-up tweet to him a day later.
Curran told The News the Billboard meeting wasn’t her first with Brown. She described it as “nice to see an old acquaintance again.”
It was around 3 a.m. Tuesday that Curran called 911 and told Los Angeles police Brown threatened her with a gun inside his Tarzana mansion.
Curran claimed she was admiring a diamond cross necklace displayed by a jeweler inside Brown’s house when the “Kiss Kiss” singer whipped out the firearm and yelled at her to get out.
Police searched Brown’s residence later that day and arrested him on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon.
He posted $250,000 bail and has a court date set for Sept. 20.
“Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false,” Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos said in a Twitter statement late Tuesday.
Geragos told the Los Angeles Times that during the search of Brown’s home, the LAPD did not find any firearms or the jewelry described by Curran.
“It has become apparent that the allegations are not just false but fabricated,” Geragos said.
Meanwhile, Monroe told Complex she too doubted Curran’s claims against Brown.
The fellow model and former roommate said she believed Curran stole multiple diamond rings from her when they lived together.
“Once things went missing, I told Baylee to leave and pack up and get the F out,” Monroe told Complex.
She said Curran called the cops on her in response and threatened to tell police she tried to assault her.
As The News first reported Wednesday, another former roommate said in a court filing in October 2013 that Curran falsely accused him of threatening her life and slamming her against a wall.
Princeton Roseborough filed the paperwork after Curran got an emergency restraining order against him by alleging the aspiring personal trainer threw her against the wall and threatened to hire a hit man to kill her.
Roseborough denied her claims in a sworn statement to the court and a judge dismissed the case a couple weeks later when Curran was a no-show at a hearing.
“I had a similar situation as Chris Brown. Long story short, I had a girl over and they got in a fight and (Curran) swung and I caught her hit. I told her no fighting in the house because it was somebody else’s place,” Roseborough told The News.
“Yeah, she’s crazy,” he said of Curran. “She likes to start trouble with people to get money out of them. She has her crazy spurts.”
Yet another former friend has come forward and accused Curran of taking part in a robbery of her wallet from Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel in 2013.
Rachel Getachew said she first met Curran at a pool party several years ago and thought she was a “super sweet girl.”
When Curran invited her on an all-expenses paid trip to New York in October 2013, she thought it was “a little sketchy” but figured Curran was simply friends with someone wealthy and generous.
“Immediately it was clear he was her sugar daddy,” Getachew said Wednesday of Phil Vasyli, the now deceased footwear mogul who met them in New York.
Getachew said Vasyli was “actually a really sweet guy” but she was “weirded out” by the group dynamic during their first meeting over dinner at STK, so she went back to her room after about 45 minutes.
Curran and pal Julia Parle continued to party and spent the night in Vasyli’s room, she said.
Getachew said the next day she met Curran and Parle at the St. Regis spa and got a 30-minute foot massage while the other two women got their hair done.
“When I come back out, Julia walked up to me and said, ‘Well you need to pay for this.’ I didn’t have an issue paying, but I said I was going to talk to Phil first. She said, ‘You’re not going to talk to anyone,'” Getachew recalled.
Getachew said she made a comment questioning Parle and Curran’s relationship with Vasyli, and Parle physically attacked her.
Hotel staff broke up the fight, but Parle and Curran later stormed Getachew’s room and grabbed her black Louis Vuitton bag and ran out, Getachew claimed.
“I immediately dialed security, and (a staffer) came up to comfort me,” she said. “I said two girls left holding a black bag and they should stop them because they just robbed me.”
After about 10 minutes, a security guard returned with the bag, but it was empty, she said.
“They gave him some BS excuse. Meanwhile, they kept all my stuff,” she said.
Getachew filed a police report, had her parents buy her a plane ticket home and used the NYPD paperwork as her ID at the airport, she said.
She said Curran and Parle later harassed her back home in LA. The pair contacted mutual friends and said they were collecting donations because Getachew had cancer, Getachew claims.
“People were texting me saying, ‘She’s collecting money for your cancer. Why didn’t you tell me?'” Getachew said. “She collected like $700, I believe, in two days.”
Getachew described Curran as “hungry for fame.”
“That’s why I stayed away,” Getachew said. “I’m not saying Chris Brown is innocent, but something must have happened. She has been blacklisted by a lot of people because she’s robbed and scammed people.”
