Chris Brown Was Blocked From a Role on 'Power' Due to 'Anger Issues'

50 Cent apparently guaranteed him a spot on the show.

Published September 2, 2016

Chris Brown’s been accused of a lot recently, most of which hasn’t materialized as true. He does have a past though, and it’s apparently keeping him from landing a pretty big acting gig.

Page Six is reporting that 50 Cent had promised the singer a role on his show Power, but unfortunately didn’t consult the Starz network executives. They claim Breezy’s anger issues should disqualify him from being an actor on the show.

“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,” a source close to the situation told the website. “The network insisted that Chris’s 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.”

Hmmm. Sounds like Fif should’ve consulted the bosses before making any guarantees. CB has yet to respond publicly to his role denial. This past week’s been a turbulent one for him. He was arrested on Tuesday (August 30) after being accused of assault with a deadly weapon. Baylee Curran, an aspiring model and actress, said Breezy pointed a gun at her when she tried to examine a piece of jewelry.

No weapons were found in Chris Brown’s home after a long standoff with the police. He was released on $250,000 bail late Tuesday evening after posting bond. He has an arraignment scheduled for September 20 at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center. Brown addressed rumors of the assault on Instagram and denied any wrongdoing. At the time, his attorney Mark Geragos called the charges “demonstrably false.”
