Chris Brown just can’t catch a break!

The Fame singer took over media headlines, once again, for claims of another alleged assault last week. This time, complaints were filed by former beauty queen Baylee Curran, who claims Brown pulled a gun on her early Tuesday morning.

Her allegations resulted in Brown undergoing all-day surveillance by police as they attempted to obtain a search warrant for his home. The incident, dubbed a “standoff” by multiple media outlets, eventually led to his arrest that evening. Breezy has maintained his innocence while his lawyer, Mark Geragos, is in court fighting to prove his client was set up.

According to Page Six, Geragos told the court, “There were no gun or guns found in the home. This was a set-up.”

Geragos went on to address Brown’s militaristic arrest during a press conference Friday afternoon, saying, “The response was something like a siege outside of Fallujah.”

In the wake of his highly publicized arrest, celebrities have spoken out in support, including Ray J, Keke Palmer, Hulk Hogan and more.
