Did Chris Brown’s Latest Brush With Law Cost Him Starz ‘Power’ Role?


Well, we do not know what to think.  This whole Chris Brown fiasco is one for the books.  We stand firmly on the thoughts that Brown needs to be friends with only ‘himself’ for a while.  Whether there is truth to the story of him assaulting aspiring ‘actress’ Baylee Curran with a gun, we will never know, but what we do know is that there are people looking to set the young, hot-tempered singer up, and he is an easy target.

It is likely his hot-temper that may have caused him not to appear on the hit Starz series, ‘Power.’  Rapper, 50 Cent, an avid supporter of Brown and one of the key players behind ‘Power’ is said to have promised his friend a role on the show, but the higher Starz execs are not keen on the idea, therefore vetoing the appearance.

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.”

50 Cent and Brown are close friends, having worked on a number of tracks together. 50 defended Brown after his arrest, writing on Instagram, “That’s my boy. I watched him come up, a lot of the s – – t he go threw [sic] is crazy to me . . . If someone calls 911 and says you pulled a gun on them in your house, are the police coming to creat [sic] a bunker at the end of your drive way for 11 hours to wait for a search warrant? Then live stream it, This must be VIP Treatment. SMH.”

Reps for Starz didn’t comment, and Geragos didn’t get back to us.

On Thursday, 50 Cent was still insisting he’ll get Brown on the show, despite the network’s reservations. He told Page Six, “Tune into ‘Power’ next season, because you will see Chris Brown.” Source

Um, we suggest Brown should play anything but a drug dealer – maybe a priest or something.
