Chris Brown has been cleared of assaulting a girl inside a nightclub ‘cos according to the club owner, that claim is completely false.
As ENTmania! reported, Chris was accused by a 24-year old woman called Deanna Gordon (TMZ reported her name as Deanna Gines) of deliberately pushing her down in the VIP section of the Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim Saturday night. She claimed that she suffered torn ligaments on her right knee as a result of the assault.
Chris has denied any wrongdoing, and his claim of innocence has been backed by the club owner Mike Joher, who said in a statement, ‘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.’
He then went on to narrate what actually happened that night:
‘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. Witnesses state that the she was persistently trying to rush Chris. She was eventually removed from the club.
While security was escorting her off the premises, she took off her shoes and threw them at our security. In addition, she continued to cause problems with mall security in the common area and parking lot. This type of behavior is not tolerated and is frowned upon. Our last resort was to contact police and have her arrested. However, we allowed her to leave with the people which accompanied her.
HEAT staff and security did what they had to, in order to ensure public safety and the safety of the artist. We have no reason to believe the allegations against Chris. He was a complete gentleman and remained professional throughout the entire night. Neither I, nor any of the witnesses we spoke to, saw him push or touch anybody. 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. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly. Thank you.’
Case closed, apparently.
Video footage has appeared of the accuser – who said she tore a knee ligament – walking, and swearing. Kinda throws the allegations into the dustbin.
