The owner of a Cali nightclub where a woman alleges that she was shoved to the floor by Chris Brown has come to his defense, labeling the charges “false” and describing the singer as a “complete gentleman.”
via Toronto Sun:
Heat Ultra Lounge owner Mike Joher has now issued a statement regarding the incident, insisting there was “no way” Brown came into contact with Gines.
He states, “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. Witnesses state that… she was persistently trying to rush Chris. She was eventually removed from the club…
“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. Heat will pursue legal ramifications for slandering our name and the artist.”
