New York: Rapper Chris Brown was reportedly blocked from having a role in “Power” because of his “anger issues”.
The 27-year-old singer, who was arrested and charged on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on Tuesday, had been promised a part in the Starz show by his friend 50 Cent, but network executives put a stop to his casting because of his reputation, reported the New York Post.
“50 promised Chris a big role on ‘Power,’ playing a drug dealer. But 50 didn’t consult the network first, and execs were not happy when they found out about it…,” a source said.
“The network insisted that Chris’ casting was not going to happen, because of fears about his anger issues. There was a big blowup, and they had to tell Chris he was not going to get the role. The news was delivered to him early Monday. He was livid.”
Despite executives’ apparent reservations, 50 Cent is still determined to get his pal on his show.
“Tune into ‘Power’ next season, because you will see Chris Brown,” he said. PTI
