Playing EXCLUSIVE: Ray J Calls Chris Brown's Arrest 'Wrong' and 'Sad': 'Find the Facts Out First'

Ray J passionately defends Chris Brown in an exclusive interview with ET's Kevin Frazier.

On Tuesday, Brown was booked and released on a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon after former Miss California Regional contestant Baylee Curran claimed that he threatened her with a gun at his home in Tarzana, California on Monday night. The 27-year-old R&B artist claims he was asleep when the alleged incident occurred, and took to Instagram before his arrest on Tuesday to reject Curran's claims and deny any wrongdoing.

Ray J left Brown's residence early Tuesday, and was stopped and handcuffed by police on his way out. The 35-year-old singer was allowed to leave by law enforcement after they checked his ID. His BMW, however, was seized as evidence, but Ray J tells ET that he did get his car back.

When speaking about the incident, Ray J vouches for Brown, insisting that the "Forever" singer did nothing wrong. "Chris is my homie and I just can't let people just have this full pile of negativity going on with his name," Ray explains. "We were creating, we were getting tattoos. We was talking about my new project. We were talking about so many different positive things in a tech community that we can do together -- for the community. So, it just hurts my feelings when that gets derailed with stuff like that."

Needless to say, Ray J does not think Brown should have been arrested. "It hurts my feelings that you work so hard to try to get better, and a small little lint of a story that you don't even know is even real or not can affect you this much without even getting the facts," he continues. "That's not how the system is suppose to work. That's not what we vote for."

As for whether Curran's statements are truthful, Ray J responds, "Listen, I can't say what's truthful or not, because I have never seen that happen, and I was right there. So, I don't want to comment."

Ray J also claims to not know Curran, saying he's only ever seen her for "like five, 10 minutes."

"The thing about it is, she can't be telling the truth when I'm telling you that certain things are wrong," he says. "Like, find the facts out first. You know what I'm saying? And that's all I'm saying."

Meanwhile, Curran stood by her statements given to police when speaking with ET.

“I went into the backyard and then, when I came back into the house, there was a new male in the home and he was showcasing these diamond bracelets and watches and diamond necklaces,” she explained. “At that point, Chris' friend -- and I don't know who he was to Chris -- saw me looking at them and got a little wary, I guess? Sort of cursing and screaming at me and calling me names saying ‘Get the f**k away from the diamonds. Get the f**k back outside.’”

“Chris did not see me admiring the jewelry,” continued Curran, who maintains that she was “simply looking” at the diamonds. “It was his friends who originally said ‘Get away’... But then, Chris pulled out his gun and said ‘Get the f**k out’... like, pointing that way and pointing it in my face and saying, ‘So sick of all you people, I am going to blow your head off.’ I don't really remember, but he was threatening me with the gun in my face.”

As far as pressing charges against the singer, Curran says she is “still debating,” but added of Brown, “I just hope he gets whatever he deserves.”

On Wednesday morning, the New York Police Department confirmed to ET that Curran is wanted for grand larceny after she and a friend allegedly got into a dispute with a 26-year-old female acquaintance at the Plaza hotel in October 2013. Authorities day the friend took the woman's Michael Kors wallet, and Curran left with her.
