After that, “his people demanded she sign a non-disclosure agreement.” Curran also said she has partied with Brown before and he was always nice to her but during this incident, he seemed to be “out of it” on “drugs or alcohol.”

Curran reportedly wasn’t allowed to leave until she signed it, which she refused to do. She and her friend then left.

Curran recently made a video and posted it to social media asking, “If somebody put a gun to your head, what would you do?”
