‘Victim’ fears for her life after Brown’s release
Chris Brown has been released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
The 27-year-old singer was detained by police on Tuesday after beauty queen Baylee Curran claimed that the 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker pointed a gun at her during an argument at his home.
According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, the musician was released on $250 000 bail a few hours later.
Mark Geragos, the star's attorney, tweeted shortly after: "Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes. Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false. (sic)"
Meanwhile, Curran insists that she needs police "protection" from him.

She fled the 'Fine China' singer's home in Tarzana, Los Angeles, barefoot following a row in the early hours of Tuesday morning and though she is still "in shock" from the alleged altercation, she feels "validated" after Brown’s arrest.
However, the 24-year-old model says she still feels "scared for [her] life".
She told 'Entertainment Tonight': "I'm scared for my life. I'm terrified. I hope they can provide protection... I think the world kind of needs to know that this stuff does happen. A lot of violence is going on in the world right now and I think that we all kind of need to wake up to it and reunite and just share the love, I guess."
Baylee is still "debating" whether she should press charges against the singer.
She added: "I just hope he gets whatever he deserves."
The beauty queen - who claims she visited the 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker to talk to him about appearing in one of his music videos - accused Chris of threatening to "blow [her] head off" after his friends yelled at her for "admiring" his jewellery collection.
She said: "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.
"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.'
"Chris did not see me admiring the jewellery. 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."
The news of the 'Fine China' singer's bail comes after an 11-hour stand-off with police, with Chris - who previously spent six years on probation after assaulting fellow singer and then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 - initially refusing to answer the door to the officers and instead posting videos on social media claiming that he felt harassed by their presence.

In one video, he said: "When I call the police for stalker people that are endangering my life they don't come till the next day, let somebody make a f***ed up allegation about me and you get a whole f***ing swat team...I'm innocent, f**k everybody in this s**t.
"I am a father. I am one of the best entertainers out here without bragging and saying woe is me I don't get enough credit. So at the end of the day I'm tired of this s**t, I'm up at 6,7 something in the morning talking this s**t for something I didn't do. How would you feel? F**k this fame s*t."
According to records from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Chris is expected to appear in court on September 20.
