Brie was hurt by Brady’s lies and pleaded with him to leave his life of crime behind. She started to befriend Mike in the meantime, and they quickly became close friends, especially around the time of Brie’s trial. Brady saw them together at the drive and lost it. Brie officially splits up with Brady after this immature display of aggression.
