All this drama over a parking space: Chris Brown was sued for assault and battery on Tuesday (August 13) by a man who claims he was punched and kicked by a member of Brown’s entourage during a fight at a recording studio.
Sha’keir Duarte sued Brown for unspecified damages in Los Angeles Superior Court, claiming he suffered a concussion, humiliation, and mental anguish as a result of the attack, EW reports.
Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos called the case frivolous. “This is what gives lawyers and lawsuits a bad name is garbage like this,” Geragos says. The attorney promises that he will seek to have the lawsuit dismissed and will countersue Duarte.
So what prompted this brawl in the first place? Duarte claims he was beaten during a fight over a parking spot at Westlake Recording Studios back on Jan. 27 between the entourages of Brown and R&B artist Frank Ocean after Brown parked in Ocean’s spot at the studio.
