Attorney Bryan Pieper says his client has never had an inappropriate relationship with a student despite audio clips and e-mails released by Williamson County Schools.
Those audio clips include a number of conversations between Brown and a woman he briefly dated 10 years ago.
In those conversations the two discuss having a rendezvous in Brown's office after hours.
"I want you to make me nuts like you did for my first time when I was 17," said the woman.
In the conversation the woman says the relationship occurred when she was an underage student at McGavock High and Brown was a teacher.
That woman secretly recorded the conversations.
They were sent along with several e-mails and a nude picture Brown allegedly sent her to Williamson County Schools who then provided them to media..
Pieper says the woman was actually in her early 20s when the relationship happened and he says she's been trying to rekindle it with Brown and he rejected her.
"The audio recordings are fake. The e-mails are fake. Common sense indicates that if Dr. Brown were attempting to engage in some secret lurid activity, he would not do so through a private e-mail address called firstname.lastname@example.org," said Pieper.
Fox 17 did some checking in Brown's old Metro Schools file.
We found no allegations of wrongdoing and several positive reviews from his days at McGavock.
Pieper says Brown will provide a more detailed explanation of the phone calls sometime in the coming days.
In the meantime the district has named former Centennial Assistant Principal Sandra Joyner as the Interim Principal.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
