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 email@example.com," 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.

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
