“Everybody knows a Chad, I think he’s very honest,” Brown told ET’s Nischelle Turner on Friday.
And it’s not just candor that makes Chad a good friend, he’s also reliable. After all, it was Chad who offered Lawrence a couch to crash on when his relationship with Issa fell apart.
“He gives sound advice to Lawrence,” Brown said, pointing out that Chad has been guiding Lawrence through his relationship woes since season one. “From the very first episode, what did he [Chad] say? He was like, ‘You really don’t care about [Issa] if you forgot her birthday,’” Brown recalled.
Chad may be dishing out “sound advice,” but his words of wisdom haven’t exactly stopped Lawrence from creeping dangerously close to becoming a “f**k boy."
“He can get it together,” Brown predicted of Lawrence. “He will get it together, as long as he sticks with Chad.”
In fact, Brown thinks fans are a little too hard on Lawrence, especially since Issa cheated on him and pretty much forced them to split.
“Lawrence is what happens when a good guy goes bad. And how did he start to go bad?” Brown said in reference to Issa’s cheating.
