Nightclub Owner Says Chris Brown Didn’t Assault Anyone … This Time, Anyway
A woman recently accused Chris Brown of throwing her to the ground at a California nightclub. Given who we're talking about here, that's not a hard story to believe -- but the club's owner says the event in question never happened.
While Deanna Gines says Brown intentionally shoved her to the ground at Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim -- tearing ligaments in her knee that may require surgery -- witnesses claim she injured herself trying to get close to Brown in the first place.
Basically, Deanna hurt herself trying to cozy up to someone charged with assault and then cried assault on him later. Okay then.
Mike Joher, owner of Heat Ultra Lounge, released a (somewhat grammatically flawed) statement that said in part, "Based on the information which we have gathered from our security company, mall security and other party goers which were at HEAT on Saturday night; It is apparent that the alleged incident regarding Chris Brown is false."
"We know that the claimant was trying to jump on stage and security was doing their job by keeping people away from Chris. There was no way that he could have touched her, his section was roped off and he had heavy security surrounding him," Joher explained.
"Witnesses state that the she was persistently trying to rush Chris. She was eventually removed from the club."
He added that after she was escorted from the venue, she took off her shoes and threw them at the security team. Even though she was a general mess, continuing to cause problems in the parking lot, they allowed her to leave with her friends rather than calling the police.
Concluded Joher, "It is unfortunate that this matter has become an issue. These false allegations are tarnishing the venues reputation and is causing unnecessary problems for Chris Brown. HEAT will pursue legal ramifications for slandering our name and the artist."
Deanna will also most likely be in trouble for filing a false police report. But hey, at least Chris Brown knows she exists now. Bonus?
