Brown Sued For $1.5 Million Over Alleged Scuffle
Former SPICE GIRLS star MELANIE BROWN is facing a $1.5 million (£1 million) lawsuit from a real estate agent who alleges he was attacked after he was mistaken for a photographer.
Amado Aguirre claims he was sitting in his car outside the singer's Los Angeles home taking pictures of houses in the street to help estimate the value of a neighbouring property in December last year (09).
He alleges the singer, her husband Stephen Belafonte, and a third man named Amin Zahedi mistook him for a paparazzo and attacked him, according to legal papers acquired by TMZ.com.
Aguirre, who claims he suffered neck injuries and a broken hand in the incident, is seeking $1 million (£666,666) in punitive damages, as well as $350,000 (£233,333) in other damages, $35,000 (£23,333) in medical expenses and $100,000 (£66,666) for loss of future earnings.
