Wayne Brady Reveals Scary Moment Where He Feared for His Daughter's Safety

Wayne Brady is opening up about teaching his daughter about racism.

During an interview with Access Hollywood, the 48-year-old Who’s Line Is It Anyway? star opened up about a situation where he feared for his 17-year-old daughter Maile‘s safety while in the presence of police.

“A couple years ago, she must have been 14 or 15, and we live in Malibu, her mom lives in Malibu and I wasn’t home,” Wayne recalled. “She set the alarm off in my house. I freaked out because I was giving her the code, and for whatever reason, she put it in wrong and it wouldn’t accept.”

“The alarm company then said, ‘We are sending armed response right now,’” Wayne continued. “I was so worried that my daughter could not explain in the heat of the moment, ‘This it’s my house.’ Was she going to let these armed officers in? I told her ‘Get out of the house right now and run down the street, run down about a half a mile to your mama’s house.’”

Wayne said that Maile questioned it, but he was so worked up and worried that he yelled at her to just go to her mom’s house.

“Because I had an incident a couple years ago when I lived in Sherman Oaks where I locked myself out, and I tripped my own alarm, and I couldn’t turn off the alarm,” Wayne revealed. “And an armed response team came and I had to prove it was my house – and true, that should be the same for anyone when you’re outside of someone’s house. But the fear that these people would hurt me outside of my own house because it’s not unprecedented.”

“I knew that I could handle it because I was a man, but I was fearful for my little girl,” Wayne said.

Wayne said that after that incident, Maile worried that the cops were going to “kill” her so he had to have a talk with her about racism and the police.
