Brown is claiming that he was in frequent contact with his agent. He claims that the clause never really came up. Which I'm inclined to believe, because it really does genuinely seem like Brown flat out did not know about this. It will be interesting to see if Brown mentioned he was working out on his own and his agent said nothing.
It doesn't help that his agent is a contract lawyer. This is an unbelievable oversight on his part.
It's possible he told Brown about it. I'm inclined to believe that given he had money on the line too, he would have been forceful about it if he did and certainly wouldn't have ever let him work out on his own.
