Brown Blasts 'Frivolous' Assault Lawsuit

Embattled R&B star CHRIS BROWN has dismissed a new assault lawsuit filed against him by a disgruntled photographer, insisting the snapper is simply looking for a big payout.
The Kiss Kiss singer has been slapped with a suit from paparazzo Robert Rosen, who alleges he was attacked by Brown's bodyguards in March (09) as he attempted to take pictures of the star in a Los Angeles gym.
Rosen claims Brown's bodyguards chased him, causing him to fall down a flight of stairs, before holding him down after spotting him snapping away as Brown played basketball. He is suing for damages on charges of assault, battery and false imprisonment.
But Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos is adamant the snapper's claims are baseless.
He says, "This is a specious and frivolous lawsuit by one of the paparazzi seeking publicity and a payday."
The shots were taken just weeks after Brown was arrested for reportedly beating girlfriend Rihanna during a fight on the eve of the Grammy Awards in February (09).
He has denied charges of felony assault and making criminal threats in relation to the former couple's alleged bust-up, and faces almost five years behind bars if convicted.
