Baylee Curran — the woman who accused Chris Brown of threatening her with a gun, leading to his arrest on charges of assault with a deadly weapon on Tuesday — was dethroned as Miss California Regional 2016 in July, ET has learned. According to an official statement from the pageant on Wednesday, she’s also refused to return her crown and sash.
“Miss Curran has been dethroned as of July this year due to a breach of contract,” the statement reads. “Baylee Curran has been asked numerous times to return her crown/sash which she has refused to do. We do not condone the alleged actions of Mr. Brown or his associates, however, Miss Curran has incorrectly identified herself as Miss California Regional.”
Curran has posted multiple pictures of herself wearing her Miss California Regional sash and crown on her Instagram account, the most recent one being from less than a month ago, when she had already been stripped of the title.
She had the title for two months, before the pageant organization says they “investigated allegations and incidents” that occurred during Curran’s reign. Miss California Regional “prohibits any form of alcohol or paraphernalia use,” nor do they “allow any behavior not befitting a queen.”
A source tells ET pageant officials were sent an anonymous tip about “racy” photos of Curran, and that there was an investigation regarding them, but that this was only one of the reasons she was dethroned.
Despite the pageant drama, Curran still has photos of herself proudly wearing her crown on Instagram.
