Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Chris Brown has been sued by his manager for allegedly being beaten and assaulted while the singer was on drugs.
The court documents say that the plaintiff, Michael Guirguis , or Mike G of Nitevision Management, filed a lawsuit against the singer for assault, battery, breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, false imprisonment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. He also alleged Brown brutally attacking him in early May before he started the European leg of his tour.
The manager claims that Brown was in a drug-fueled rage when he was attacked inside a room. Brown allegedly punched him four times in the face and in the neck. He reportedly had to visit the emergency room after the beating.
The documents also said that the singer allegedly took to social media to boast about the beating. Guirguis added that he was hired by the Grammy winner to repair his reputation when Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna back in 2009.
Brown then took to Instagram to say the following after the lawsuit became public: "I fired them because they're stealing money. You’re stealing money pal, so you're mad because you're no longer existent…God Bless you. Wish you the best of luck."
Patty Glaser, the attorney for Guirguis , said in a statement after Brown released the Instagram videos, "It’s a pathetic reaction to the lawsuit. There is no truth to his claim and Brown knows it. We'll amend our complaint to add claims for defamation. We did everything we could to resolve this in a non-public way to avoid damage to Chris Brown. Regrettably, as outlined in our complaint, Chris Brown has proven to be his own worst enemy.”
Brown is facing another legal battle with Nia Guzman, the mother of his child Royalty. He has been granted 12 unsupervised days a month with the toddler but Guzman wants a nanny present during the visits.
