Chris Brown is out on bail.

After Baylee Curran claimed the singer had threatened her with a gun, Brown was arrested Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. He was released from jail later that night after posting $250,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County jail records. "Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes," Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, tweeted. "Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false #TeamBreezy."

Upon his release, Brown shared a screenshot of Geragos' tweet via Instagram. He also shared a video previously posted by Ray J, who was at Brown's house at the time of the alleged incident. "Yo, this Ray J. Check it out. I'm real upset about today. I'm not happy with how things are handled and how people can take a false story and blow it up into something way more than what it should be," the R&B singer, 35, said of Brown, 27. "You got just positive people around and you look outside and it's like a war zone for no reason for somebody, some stranger said about something that don't got nothing to do with nothing. And to react like that so fast without really knowing the facts and knowing what's up ain't cool, and you know, it's just not right. It shouldn't be like this. I support the homie Chris and I support the whole movement. I'm here, and again, man, this s--t has to change. It can't be like this every time somebody yippin' and yappin' to get an extra buck. You know it turns around and it's all back on us. Ain't cool."

Brown also deleted the Instagram videos he published Tuesday afternoon as news helicopters circled his home and camera crews gathered at the bottom of his hilltop estate in Tarzana. He remained holed up inside his home during a standoff with police, which lasted nearly 14 hours. During that time, Brown complained about Curran and the cops in the aforementioned videos.

"So I'm sleep half the damn night. I just wake up and all these mother--king helicopter, choppers is around. Police out there at the gate. C'mon, my n---a! What the fuck else do y'all want from me, bro? I stay out of the way take care of my daughter, do work! I don't even f--k ugly bitches, trifling bitches, whatever the f--k it is. I'm not on that bro. I'm way too tired to be dealing with this bulls--t," he said in another clip. "Y'all, every three months you get tired of me right? You gotta be. Every three months y'all come up with something, bro. What is it? What's going to be next? Imma fart an elephant? C'mon, my n---a. But at the same time when I call the police for stalker people that are endangering my life they don't come till the next day, let somebody make a f--ked up allegation about me, and oh! You get a whole f--king SWAT team. My n---a, I'm innocent. F--k everybody in this s--t."

In another expletive-laden Instagram video that has since been deleted, the "Grass Ain't Greener" singer ranted, "I don't give a f--k. I'm not running for politics. I don't give f--k if I get personal opinion; all y'all can suck a fart out my ass for all I care. What I do care about is y'all defacing my name as a person and my character and my integrity. I am father. I am one of the best entertainers out here without bragging and saying woe is me I don't get enough credit. All y'all n---as know I am your daddy, n---a. So at the end of the day, I'm tired of this s—t. I'm up at 6, 7 something in the morning talking this s--t for something I didn't do. How would you feel?"

"F--k this fame s--t. I'm a real n---a," Brown added. "F--k y'all."

Curran, a 24-year-old model and former beauty queen, shared her side of the story with E! News Tuesday. Around 2:40 a.m., she recalled, "I went into the backyard just for a little bit, and then I came back in and there was a man selling diamond watches and necklaces." As she was admiring one item in particular—a diamond cross necklace—one of Brown's friends freaked out. "I did not pick it up. I did not touch it, take it, or grab it—anything to that sort. That's when Chris Brown's friend—or I don't know who that was, a guy with dreads—kind of came after me and was nudging me out saying, "Get out! Don't touch the jewelry.' He was calling me names and that's when Chris Brown kind of went off, pulled out his gun, and said, 'Get the f--k out!'"

"He was saying, 'Get the f--k out! Haven't I told you guys enough?'" Curran said, adding that he was "kind of threatening me with the gun, like if I didn't get out, he's going to shoot me with it."

Curran, who said she'd "hung out" with Brown "several times before," admitted to E! News she was "scared" for her life in that moment. Brown has not commented further on her allegations.
