Chris Brown’s former manager has sued the singer for alleged assault and battery.
The singer is involved in another legal problem given the latest lawsuit filed by Brown’s former manager Mike G, TMZ reported. Mike G claimed that Brown has “brutally” attacked him in May. The “Back to Sleep” crooner was said to have taken his former manager inside a room and proceeded to punch Mike G several times in the face and neck. Mike G also claimed that the incident happened “without provocation.”
The alleged attack also resulted to Mike G being brought to the emergency room. In his lawsuit, he also claimed that the Brown boasted about his actions on social media, as well as his friends. The singer’s former manager also indicated in the lawsuit that Brown even told team members who worked on the musician’s tour that he will also beat them up similar to what he did with Mike G.
Mike G even went on to claim that Rihanna’s former boyfriend was in a “drug-fueled” rage during the incident. The lawsuit also indicated that Mike G was worried of a possible retaliation from the singer’s “gang member friends.”
Brown was said to have hired Mike G in 2012. The singer’s former manager also claimed in his lawsuit that he was employed to help change Brown’s image following his attack on former girlfriend Rihanna. He also claimed that part of his responsibilities included trying to get the singer to quit drugs and recover from his debt.
Meanwhile, Brown recently took to Instagram to respond to Mike G’s claims. In a video, he stated that he fired his former manager for allegedly stealing from him. "You're stealing money pal, so you're mad because you're no longer existent…God Bless you. Wish you the best of luck,” he said.
However, Mike G’s attorney Patty Glaser told E!News that Brown’s Instagram statement was untrue. He also stated that they plan to change their lawsuit to include a defamation claim. “That is unequivocally untrue and shameful and we will be amending our complaint to allege defamation,” Glaser said.
Brown or his representatives have yet to comment on Mike G’s attorney’s latest statement.
