According to Page Six, 50 Cent promised the troubled singer a role as a drug dealer on the show, but execs blocked the move due to Breezy’s “anger issues.”
They are also insinuating the news of losing his role was delivered a day before Chris allegedly pulled a gun on Baylee Curran.
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.”
At 3 a.m. on Tuesday, aspiring actress Baylee Curran called police claiming Brown pointed a gun at her after she was admiring a diamond necklace during a party at his home. When police arrived, they were denied entry and told to obtain a search warrant, causing an hours-long standoff at the singer’s home that was covered live by several networks. Brown was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and released on $250,000 bail. But Brown insists he was set up, and his lawyer, Mark Geragos, believes his accuser “fabricated” the gun threat.
50 Cent nor Chris’ attorney, Mark Geragos, could be reached for comment.
