Chris Brown Facing $3 Million Lawsuit
(AllHipHop News) The parking lot altercation between the entourages of Chris Brown and Frank Ocean earlier this year may end up costing CB over $3 million. Ocean's cousin filed a pain and suffering lawsuit against Brown in August alleging the R&B singer encouraged his bodyguard to attack him.
TMZ now reports that Sha’keir Duarte's complaint against Brown is asking for $1 million for pain, suffering and inconvenience, $1,000,000 for emotional distress, $1 million for punitive damages, and $60,000 for medical expenses.
Brown has already filed a countersuit against Duarte claiming he was the victim in the incident. His suit states it was Duarte that began punching and kicking him first. The damages in that case have not been specified.
Brown is currently admitted to court-ordered rehabilitation after being accused of attacking another man in Washington, D.C. in October and throwing a rock through the window of his mother's car during an earlier rehab stint last month.
